Finished 5th Probably should have been 6th given Pascal suffered the pitstop bug.

I kind of enjoyed this track, no real major incidents of my own, did get caught up in a couple of others peoples problems though.

Any thanks go to Jonatan for the set up help this season! they have really helped! considering i couldnt keep the cars on the track in race 1. Thanks to Mike also for the initial advice in Round 1!!

Hope HSO uses this mod again, thoroughly enjoyed it

Thanks all!

Grats! I had to win to overtake you and all others and that was NOT happening at that track. Great points race with all you folks in Group C!

Yeah, right...

There's nothing wrong with the cars that raced in the series, also with the competition back then. Be it early Group 1/2/3/4 tourers, the Group 5 monstrosities or the late Group 6/C era, all very fascinating stuff. Its just those ridiculous tracks they used to race. Probably nice for the spectators, but driving is... almost no fun. Of the four races I attended, AVUS was the only track I really enjoyed, even though I spoiled the result myself during the last minutes of qualifying.

Oh, and I have to apologise for that incident with the Alba early on I hit in the back and spun around. I got a bit caught by surprise about your speed mid-corner.

woo that was fun! finishing was my aim and in the end i think i benefitted from a lot of others misfortune. though i seemed decently fast through the wiggles at least.

even though its probably a bit crap, i really liked driving the harrier, so hope these cars get used again soon because i want to drive it some more.

I still love the Lola, it will still be my first choice... It was the perfect car for this track, and i had to let it down...

I schould be happy with getting my first pole (in class) but the race ended in a disaster...

I got boxed in at the start making me already lose positions. Then things started getting better, but that wasnt for long. sorry to Gerard for spinning you altough my race hurted very much too from that... In the end when i caught up to Simon, i got a bit cocky and let my guard down which when he entered the chicane slow (very smart move, since i lacked power) i got wheelspin and slammed myself sideways into the wall, and to add insult to injury the buggy track stopped counting my laps afer the pitstop which robbed me from atleast having 4th...

There is 1 sentence going thru my head: "you idiot, to finish first, you first have to finish :doh:

Great racing though, These Group C cars always make for a interesting season :top:
Maybe this perfect senario will repeat itself sometime and maybe i can finnaly bag a victory

As this was my 2nd HSO/Rfactor race and my only DRM race I'm still learning. My apologies to everyone.
I did find and turn on the virtual mirrors and managed to put together a setup that suited me. I also turned up the skidding noise. Not surprised that I was the slowest car .
Somehow I missed the start of the race. ?????
I'm sitting in the garage. I see and hear a count down and then see a formation lap message. I figured I'd better head out to the track. So I head to the track entrance. As I get close to the track I see that everybody is bunched together about half a lap ahead of me. Did I miss a button push. Or was this a penalty for poor driving during Qualification?. So I take off after the field and I'm still nearly a half lap behind when the green falls. I'm not sure if I'm actually in the race because I haven't seen a single car. But Its not long before the leaders come around and put me down a lap the first of many. Then I wonder if I'm actually being scored for my laps.
I never actually raced anyone except for brief moments with other C-Junior cars. But I knew I was being lapped so I'd eventually get out of the way. I saw this as a cross between an autocross event and an endurance race. I had a good time. Now to find out a few more of Rfactors secrets.

Will have a look at cleaning my pedals, has been a while since the last time actually...

All in all, a dissapointing end to the season with a 2nd race that went way too badly...


But overall a nice championship, thanks for organizing it Smile

You did not join fast enough BoB.

Great driving when being overtaken when I saw you. You were easily predictable. Nice job.

Ok :doh:

Cars will be placed on the grid when the drivers click "race"

I missed this part. I don't think I ever clicked the "race" button. I just drove out from the garage to the track. I was not to happy to have a new interface to work thru for this Mod.

Congrats also to Dylan Canton for taking the Wankel Cup for the highest placing Mazda all season.

Of Course, I think he's the only one that stuck to his Mazda powered car all season!

My first hso win :first: only took 180 attempts lol!

In the beginning I took it very easy. Got overtaken by some cars and tried to just stay away from incidents. In the first 20% of the race I was able to keep up with the other group c junior cars, but after that they were quicker than me. I was aiming for 3rd in class as both Dana and Dylan was faster. In the slalom sections I was so slow. Car so understeery. Maybe wrong setup :hum:

But as this is racing strange stuff can happen. First Dana crashes and later Dylan spins when he is closing in for the overtake :smil20:

After that i was just trying to survive the slalom sections. Was close to crash sometimes so a big relief when I crossed the finish line.

Thanks for hosting this championship :top:

My biggest regret with this series is that we couldn't do the proper long version of Avus. 
Other than that, I think it produced some exciting action.
