Richard, very sorry for the tap-and thanks for the great set.

I was trying to pass Jan on the inside, and simply couldn't get the speed down.

Next time I'll break earlier....very sorry

i don't know if i choose a bad place to make an overtake, but in the end, Florkin touches me and i caught up into the tire barriers. Sorry if i fumbled someone on the start, but i tried to be many cautious as possible.

Anyway, congrats everybody, see you on the next race :drink:

Wow....This track and the 936 were totally unsuited for each other. I had a decent start, I did trade paint, I think with someone in the Nordkurve on one of the opening laps. Spun in the Hairpin a couple of times. Somewhere around Lap 10, Gerard was passing me on the main straight, however he moved over on me WAYY before he had even come close to clearing me, I got jumped on the brakes, to keep from hitting him, however by that point we were at the Hairpin braking zone and I was locked up and and trying desperately to unlock the tires when I hit him from the back and turned him. He lost 2nd place to Jose for a bit because of it, I'm sorry Gerard, but you gotta pay attention when you're passing slower cars.

I finally bit it on lap 18 or something, I caught the first curb for the chicane to hard it pitched me sideways and I went all General Lee over one of the ADAC bails, I did land upright, which is better then most I'd seen hitting them. But as soon as I landed the car lurched left and I hit the wall hard enough to blow up the engine.

Honestly, I was kinda glad when it happened, this race was just insane. Big Kudos to Ray for finishing in the other 936.

Yeah amazing coverage, impossible to look after all the action on track, but you showed us a lot. :top:

Perhaps Richard can pump up its microphone volume a bit next time, to match Jason :conduit:

Since we are po ass beyatches we will go with TM since R costs a LOT of money that needs to pay for the servers. I recently wrote a fat check to register my trademark "Battle Roads Miniatures". I cried a tad when that check went out Sad

It's slowly becoming a signature phrase, something like Murray Walker's "This is iiiiiin-credible!" :D

Your translation is correct Philippe. In the post race discussions by the admins not participating in the race they basically credited the issue to the horrible physics of the DeCadenet which Pascal was driving. I had that car for about 12 hours early in the series if you recall. I could not finish even 1 practice lap without some sort of mistake or incident. It is a horridly unstable car but it is fast so it is addictive to some.

I would say it was 75% Decadenet and 25% driver (edited). Pascal, you were not innocent here. I was very relieved to see you retire as you were HORRIBLE in qualifying.

Not you!! HIM (Pascal)!!!!! The guy who took you out!! I was relieved when Pascal retired. I was unhappy to see you retired as we were having a great battle. Your launch out of turn 1 on the outside was flawless. I could not match you on the inside. I planned to pass you in the final turn before the main straightaway. When we caught Pascal you will notice I backed off. Had I not both of us would have been taken out in the accident he caused.
