My poor little Elfin feels so underpowered! It handles like a dream, but here its 20bhp deficit really showed. Don't know how I could do better. Qualifed 5th, ran 5th most of the race, finished 4th by default. Great racing with Petr on the way. Not many I would trust going side-by-side through Watkins Glen's esses with!

first I must apologize to Gerard , looking at the replay I should have given you room, sorry mate.

Qualified 3rd, didn't get off the line that well and had a slight tap in t1 which resulted in a half spin, 4th from last I pushed hard to get up to 7th , turns out it was to hard blowing my engine.

Well done to podium.

Most physically painful race ever for me :D
First shock was Martin Lacinas engine blow at the formation lap; then he started again and that was pretty cool to fight against him :D
Sadly, in one of the last laps, Glenn threw me in the wall of turn 10 in a fight, but I could re-overtake him.
Grats to Greg for his next win :first: , and a minute of silence to Jose's engine that died in the last lap in the "Boot" sector Round 2 - Watkins Glen Grand Prix - Watkins Glen  - Page 2 3108518133
See you guys in Elkhart Lake Wink
BTW now I see why my car is such a pile of poo xD come ooon I have a 3.5 Litre Engine and you all have 5 Litres xD

Surprising 4th in Qualifying without much practise, but i think the car is quite good and fast. I had a bad start and braked late for first turn, but it was enough to keep the line. I saw Ray spinning, but on replay it seemed that he was pushed from behind. So i was in 4th after turn 1. At the long straight i overtook Jacob who had a good start because of more straight line speed.
After that it was a race alone and i tried to keep a good distance to Petr and make no errors. On the last lap i got 2nd place. Congrats to Greg :top:

That's exactly what I wanted to say about you Wink We've had some great battles since the day I joined HSO, for some reason I knew immediately that I can trust you. Lots of fun today :top:

Oh really Jacob, at least you're not driving a car that has 1.5 litres less cylinder capacity :D :D :D

Sadly, I was overtaking you by leaps and bounds per lap, then when I caught you I couldn't get by... the blocking was masterful...! Then you braked so early for a turn that I punted you and lost my front wings, which made it easy to re-overtake me.

Pascal, you need to get much better at using your mirrors and be respectful of those who are coming up to lap you before the next race. You were very erratic when I came up behind you, and I lost a couple of seconds because of that.

I watched that part of the race again and that corner where you were right behind me is a really bad corner; also I saw you in the mirror, that's why i slowed down a bit more in that corner to let you by...

course décevante. Je me suis rendu compte trop tard que mon setup ne valait rien avec le plein. Une 1ere perte de contrôle dés le 1er tour et une 2eme dans le tour suivant qui m'envoie dans les rails pour le compte.

Ce mod reste une référence. Les places sont chères dans le top 10, les écarts réduits. La dernière place du podium reste accessible à beaucoup de monde et ce sera passionnant tout le championnat de se battre pour y grimper. :top:

:grrr: :grrr: :grrr: :grrr: trop dangereux en piste encore et toujours...deux touchettes avec ce pauvre Ben dans les deux premiers tours. Je pensais avoir été prudent. A priori non.

Donc autosanction pour Road America qui se fera sans moi.

Sinon course mi figue mi raisin. Une belle bagarre à distance avec Ph. Martinelli pratiquement du début à la fin pour le coté super. Cote deception Je n'ai jamais reussi à rouler dans les temps que je faisais offline par contre. J'ais aussi souffert toute la course d'un survirage dés que je touchais les freins. Malgré tout la voiture était vraiment nettement plus stable que pour Edmonton

content de la maniere pour ma 70 eme pole HSO :yaa:

la course fut dure et intense , 4 tours d une bagarre sans merci pour reprendre la 1 er place a José , et apres 21 tours a attaqué à la limite chaque seconde pour arriver a creuser un ecart de 3 s sur José .

puis dans le dernier tour il semblerait qu il ait explosé son moteur .

j ai tiré le maximum possible de ma petite Begg XXX contre tous mes concurrents direct équipés de voitures bien plus rapide donc je suis content .

:first:

I just saw the posts from Jacob and Pascal :
About behavior on the track, I'll watch the replay in the few days, and I'll say you what I think.
But in a first time, remember guys :
For the pleasure of everyone on track, we can't allow some erratics behavior. Our league has always hosted the drivers regardless of their level, we just expect a gentlemen behavior from the less experimented as the best drivers. We are not an arcade league, but a simracing league. Some moves can't exist here.

@Ludo : Tu peux venir à la prochaine course, t'inquiète. C'est vrai que tu m'as un peu bouchonné alors que j'essayais de rester au cul de Philou que tu suivais aussi, mais y'avait rien de répréhensible. En plus, j'avais pas vraiment la motivation pour la course, donc t'inquiète pas, c'est moi qui est fait ESC. Ce n'est pas à cause de toi, si je finis dans le sable. :frank:

Pascal: I didnt notice at all that i overtake somebody:-D I was surprised that on the longest straight my car was too slow aproxx. about 20km/h less that the anybody else. This handicaps i tried to eliminate partially in the corners but it was not so much to reach any good times close to 1:40.. My max was something around 1:43 in the race.

Nothing, this was a race that truth could not only prepare and then seeing the pace workouts Greg thought it would be impossible, but after the race the truth have a good first trying to defend the first place and then the persecution , and by the end of the race and with nothing to lose , because in the previous race had a disconnection , continue pushing hard and fast dial and suddenly back in the last lap the engine exploded ..... !!! affraid affraid
Well congratulations to Greg and the rest and I'll take that I had fun and a good time .
Regards and until next time :top:

PD : Do you use something to know engine wear in the race ?



Pues nada , esta era una carrera que la verdad no pude apenas preparar y luego viendo el ritmo en entrenamientos de Greg pensaba que iba a ser imposible, pero después en carrera la verdad que lo pase bien primero intentando defender el primer puesto y luego en la persecución , ya para el final de la carrera y sin nada que perder , ya que en la anterior carrera tuve una desconexión , continúe tirando fuerte y marque vuelta rápida y de repente en la ultima vuelta .....el motor explotó !!! affraid affraid
Bueno felicitaciones a Greg y al resto y yo me quedo con que me divertí mucho y pase un buen rato .
Un saludo y hasta la proxima :top:

PD:¿ Usais algo para saber el desgaste del motor en carrera?
