If Martin is away tomorrow can I take the second #63 Alba-Giannini AR2 ?
Matthias will also drive so I can't take his Sthemo again.

It's a safe bet Martin won't be there, so unless he shows, you can drive the second Alba.

Hi all,
I could use a small tip for tyres...

Is there a corelation with pressure/wear, and if so (I guess there is), in which way... Im just trying to figure it out, but Im not able to make a coclusion becose of too small effects while changing the pressure.

Im using GID, and there is a nice symbol when tyres get like baloons, I guess its to hight pressure then, so I put it in order not to go there, but I just cant figure are tyres waring more when lower on pressure...

thanks

Got pinched on the inside into T1 Lap 1 and may have tagged Ryon's rear as a result. Then got caught up in someone elses accident in the chicane and damaged suspension, pushed too hard to get passed the C2's and spun, damaging the engine, didn't want to cause a smoke screen so went round at 80% incase of crashes/retirements to pick up a couple of places etc, However i felt i was in the way as p4 spun at the last hairpin as i out braked myself on the inside, however looking at the replay afterwards i dont think i was responsible for the spin and in hindsight could have carried on. Oh well hobbled car anyway.. see u in the next 1

What a letdown. Had some freak spin approaching Grundig turn, which sent me hard into the barrier, ripping off my front. Went to the pits, realised to late I was getting topped up with fuel, and also to late my engine temperature was rising. When I left the pits, it didn't take long and my engine died. Till then, I had a mostly fun race, feeling pretty comfortable with the Zakspeed, though I had a spin of my own, and a second one trying to avoid Dana, but was closing in on Juha Bos again, but well, it wasn't to be. DRM and me is not a love story so far... Crying or Very sad

I was wondering where you went, you were about to catch me.

My start was good, got up to 4th and ran 5-6th for half the race. I then spun in a clumsy way and damaged the front. After that accident I had a load of understeer and I couldn't even pass the C2 cars. I was still in 8th with 5 laps to go when I hit a wall and punctured. The race finished while the Joest crew were still fixing my car in the pits, obviously not in a hurry. :urgence:

:first: :champ: :banane:

I was pretty much prepared to accept 3rd as Mr Riddal and Raul had me by a lot lap time wise. Was surprised to take the lead at the start. Mr Riddal promptly relieved me of that early lead professionally and without any doubt. Then Raul caught me and in the process of disposing of me lost control and collected me slightly. I hit the wall before the pits pretty hard. I am not sure but I think it damaged something related to the brake cooling as I had massive brake fade at race end and never had the issue in test runs. The fade came quick. Car was yellow on both sides. Raul lost it at the end of the straight, I am pretty sure I touched him when he lost it (after he lost it) but not entirely sure.

Mr Riddal seems to have succumbed to the RR 100+ degree tire blight and spun bad out of the first 180. I had the lead at that point and kept looking back the whole freaking race. Mr Riddal was catching at mach II and pretty much would have killed me politely had something not happened to him. I did not see it. Once my brakes really got unbalanced Raul really caught up a lot of time. I tried a new braking line (inside out vs outside in) and it helped by about .3 sec per lap. Thank God as Raul was definitely going to kill me. I have to guess just as he caught me his RR hit 100 again and he backed off. I took the last 2 laps very easy and was relieved it was over. I was dead meat if it lasted 5 more.

Great driving by all cars when overtaking. Great field.

Still surprised I won.

Well, Mike acctually said it all.

At first I though were gonna be dusted away by Mr. Ridall Jr, but when I saw battling him with Mike I started to hope I have a chance..
I was confused a lot with some Mikes light blending, and even Im not aware of pushing him into the wall, I supposed it was something I did, so I let him regain his position. After that, there was a mess in T1, and I dont know what happend, but its the beauty of 180degree turns in swarms..

What hit me harder than that is mr. Florkin Mark. I dont want to debate, nor to press down complains to admins, but please mr. Mark, do be more carefull next race, it is really not nice to be bloked and yet pushed as we were fighting for a position.. I understand loosing control over a car (Im doing it all the time), but not slowing down faster cars should be more present with you.

Finaly, a 2nd place is better than I though after first few laps, but again, that feeling I missed the win by a hair gives me some tics...

Great fun, thank you all!
