My race was over when I spun on lap 1 at turn 3. I punctuated it with about 12 to go by doing it again. I was barely catching Richard but I know he was taking it easy with a double digit lead.

Congrats Richard on the win and Cup! Off to IROC!

Now I need a nap!

That was a fun race! My ATS wasn't fast, but at least predictable. Did not think I could contend for a podium finish, but the fact is I lost that chance by spinning, not by being slow. So that's good!

Congrats Richard for the Cup, and thanks for the TV coverage! Great commentary when Gregoire crashed just in front of me!

Thanks guys, it was great racing these cars as I wasn't at HSO when we used the 79 mod.

Had a couple of scary moments, a spin and then Marc F squeezing me onto the grass when I tried to lap him affraid but other than that the race was quite peaceful and I tried to take it easy and look after the tires and engine.

Congrats to David for making the great mod! The detail is superb and it was great to see such beautiful cars.

See you all at the next one. :drink: :champ:

It was a very eventful and enjoyable race. My M23 was rather slow in the straight line, but it took nothing away from the fun Wink  I was lapping as high as P3, but wasn't able to hold Raul in his Lotus behind me for too long. Unfortunately, i touched him while exiting the chicane and spun him around. I decided to wait for him, so i dropped 4 positions down and gave up some 10 seconds, but it resulted in a magnificent battle with Raul and Gerard. Amazing stuff, really intense racing. Raul made a small mistake on his own. Then Gerard outbraked himself in the penultimate lap while passing a backmarker, so i was fortunate enough to win this tree-way battle. It was an amazing race, thanks to everybody, who made it happen. Looking forward to next event :drink:

PS: My father just wrote that he DID watch the live feed and actually enjoyed it! Although he's not really into motorsport and he doesn't speak french at all :banane:

Those screenshots further reinforce the magnificent work done by David Sabre on this mod.


Edit: Just noticed I was tied for fast lap with Richard. Wow! Damn that spin on lap 1 really hurts now Evil or Very Mad

Raul did you use the Hard tires for the race ?
The soft tires lasted the race distance, I did say during qualifying that I was going to use the soft tires and I posted in this thread. Sorry that I said use hard tires before. :doh:

Oh, David, its not your fault.. Yes I used hard ones, I was too afraid to start to loose the car reaching the end, and since I had that pole, I was thinking that hard ones are going to bee better choice, since ma pace was just slightly slower than "gentile" pace with softs...
The problem was those hards were not up to the task for passing all the grid, at least not with the car in my hands...

My main problem is that I cant judge in which point tyres are "gone", since my driving is pretty lousy, and not consistant, and very often I make some mistakes and put that on worn tyres, which is often beyond the real situation... For example, are tyres with 40% same as ones with 70% wear... if you know what I mean..

As every other race, this one is a lesson too Smile
1. Do not get connection lost during qualis :top:
2. Try more laps with softs :clap:
3. If there is no blue flag in the top left, the guys behind you are not to let pass you :doh:

but fun is here, and Im enjoying it, and, of corse, thank you for advice, it is very valuable to me, as this one, as the one the other day on the track :hello:

The soft tires lasted longer than was expected, I was able to do the same laptimes at the end of the race as at the start of the race. As the tire wore the fuel went down so laptimes stayed the same (with careful driving). We will look into whether (or not) to modify the tires. study

Well, I noticed, so its easy for me to be smart now :hihi:

I was improveing lap tymes towards the end of the race, but not enough to follow or pass the ones in front of me, even faster in some points (thanx to Chapman), but it looks softs were better choice in the end..

Another thrilling race guys, I love these cars and would be great to do season with them.
Like to thank Yves for his setup which was more planted than mine, I didn't expect to be 3rd as there was a lot of faster cars/drivers who qualified a head of me, who failed to finish.

Well done to Richard and Mike. Look forward to the next one. :clap:

I've never realized that my name is such pain in the... mouth Very Happy Don't worry, you're doing a good job. Actually, the written form is even more confusing, as there are two signs above the last two letters, which you don't know about. But it should sound like this:

I guess H is impossible to pronounce for French speakers, for English speakers it's pronounced H as Hotel, the rest is "lavaatsch". So anything close to Hlavaatsch or lavaatsch is perfectly fine Wink

Anyway, it looks like i'll be taking part in more and more races. I love it here at HSO and i finally have a job that allows me to race at least each second week, sometimes even more than that. Sadly, CART is a bit too much to chew for me, but all the other cars are exactly what i like. See you more often :conduit:

Don't worry in two broadcasts more Ben will have given up and invented a nick for you, same as Richard The Coxter Coxon, Furious Mike Becnel etc so he will nt need to learn pronouncing Hlavac lol!
