I was having a very nice battle for 4th with Mathias, but then we were laping Pascal. I admit that it was a little risky to go three wide before the chicane, but had Pascal stayed in his line and didn't suddenly move to the middle of the track, it wouln't be a problem at all. Sadly, i lost my front wing and 40s in pits. Finally made it to 8th after a good fight with Raul and desperate attempt to chase Dana.

Im lucky that i saw a finish while i had two laps from GREG.. Man i admire your speed!! My car is crazy. When i want to brake i always block the front wheels. The weight distribution Front 33,5:66,5 Rear is very difficult to improve with setup. Maybe i need your advise what i have to do. Anyway that i drove into the finish because i felt like on boat. :-)

I was about not to race here, track first seen riht before Q session and finaly with new pedal set

DIY pedals

and now it is bigger fun to drive this beast car after I accomodate little to hard brake pedal

I used the clutch too because upshifts in this mod are  more cleaner with it and without overreving engine agains shifting only by throtle lifts

shame the grid because someone hit my suspension, i don't no why whwn there is no room anybony needs push so much, it was clear that with this tight grid will be problem, whole race i must compensate the wheel and be more carefully o brakes because the suspension was bent alittle


but i first time overtake someones on track after a loooooong time :banane:

No problem David, just one of those things mate.
Joel sorry we touched but I had damage and was pitting, I moved to the right to allow cars to pass but you went right too not knowing I could not get on the power. shame I had the pace to do well here.

Petr, those were the best few laps in my racing career :top:
Too bad I lost the car on the uphill, I think I could stalled you for few laps more... but man, you were putting pressure on me, really great! Finally, I hope I didnt made any dirty move, becose those mirrors are total chaos, I was aware of your real position only whe you vere on either side of me, so I could see you in real mirrors...

thanks man!

And, congratulations to Greg, you really are from out of this planet :D

I was really shocked was happened there. I saw Pascal completely to the left, i assumed that you would attack me again on the brakes, but thenn i only heard that big crash and flying parts.

Also strange moment with Yves, tried to counter attack, but locked my brakes on turn 3, the he crashed right into the barrels. On my replay i didn't touch him, but sorry for being more agressive today.

Later my tires went down really fast, so no chance to attack the top3.

Gratz to the podium!

Well... Basically a bad race for me... The start was bad, I lost my front wing, didn't even thing it was that bad without one but then suddenly my engine started to smoke, even with normal to low temperatures, that's why I was even slower than before... I saw you three coming behind me and I was almost on the grass, when Petr hit me at almost full speed... That cost my rear wing and punctured my rear right tyre.. So I did a pit stop but after the pit stop my engine blew up half a lap after... So yeah... A Race to forget... Congratulations to the winners anyways..

Yes, you were almost on the grass some two seconds before we collided. Maybe it was a lag, but in the race and in the replay too, you suddenly moved to the right and at the moment of impact, there was a full car-width between you and the white line. Whatever, shit happens...

First of all thanks to Ben for the setup.

My first race....so my attitude was "keep calm and wait the chequered flag".
In the first laps I battled a little with Pascal and his "modified" car.
With the Ben setup the car was more friendly to handle and hoped to finish the race. Unfortunately in the downslope after the start i lost control and banged against the wall!
The next time I will try to do better. I can't understand what was wrong with my setup...at Donnybrooke was not too bad but here the car had a "rodeo attitude"....any suggest will be accepted. Very Happy
It was a pleasure race with you all.

About setup, you're welcome.
When you are lapped, you don't need to eat the grass :D , keep your line is enough. The fasters drivers will know how to overtake you. :frank:

Ok Ben,

I know I'm not the fast driver of the pack and I am afraid to ruin the race of the fastest ones. Wink
However I will keep a more "serious and professional" composure on next races. :D
