i get several CTD ("runtime error") when pressing Exit to return to the pits. Anyeone with the same problem?

Race:

Very disappointed because of a lap 1 crash. Steve and Richard touched and there was no room. Few cars from behind damaged my rear suspensions. In the end i touched Richard Wilks, sry for that. I thought i had enough grip for the corner, but it damaged my left suspension, so race was over.

Thank you for waiting Ludvic......Sorry, I was a pain in the but to follow...So nervous under braking....

As expected, lost it under braking......Have no idea what I could have done different.....was super cautious......maybe cars infront prevented me from wanting to ease of the brakes to stop spinning......Taking a passing line did not help as I allowed myself no room to bail out.

One day....I will finish a race.........again

I expected to crash under braking, but it was the chicane that did it. Laughing

It wasn't my kind of track so not really surprised, just a shame it happened when running near the front.

Pretty pleased with todays running. With a fever and outright feeling shitty, I couldn't have asked for more.

Did not bother much with qualifying, since I only have hard tires. This Rondeau is a tricky beast, it works well over bumps, but doesn't have enough downforce to be fast in smooth, flowing corners. That meant I have to hustle it a lot, which wears the tyres a lot. If Ray was feeling tyre wear near the end, I couldn't capitalise on it. He lost some time about midway through a couple of spins, but I couldn't do anything about that either. All in all, very glad with 2nd!

Great race in terms of courteus lapped cars too, thanks!

1stly, sorry for a lacking lapping Michal, my brakes became cheese and mushrooms as soon as I spent any period of time behind another car :doh:

2ndly, sorry for coming over on you in the braking zone on the back stretch Yves, was hoping to get to Matthias so wasn't thinking straight :doh:  but thanks for a great battle overall :drink:


In Qualifying I was able to PB by a mahoosive 1,8 seconds but still "only" 15th on the grid. I am very happy with the time but the position on the grid was a tad bit dissapointing.


The Race got underway and took it very easy early on but at T4 I was lucky to see the caffuffle early and was able to take avoiding action and gained a few positions while not even going off track, though it was very close to contact pale

Came out in 8th place behind Öyvind who I stayed behind for a lap I think it was but then a car off on the inside going into the complex scared Öyvind into a lacking 5th turn and I sent it up the inside at T6. Sorry for it being so agressive Öyvind, it was not intended to result in contact even if it seemed like it was only slight on my end Embarassed

After this I was able to keep a consistent gap to Öyvind and Company behind and was loosing little by little to the cars ahead so settled into my rythm and was banging out some nice consistent laps after having gone by Yves, thanks for letting me by at that point and sorry for being very slow in the initial laps afterwards, not having you ahead was putting me off my braking points :doh:

Managed to find my way by Raul when he went off (I think it was Raul at least) and was able to defend and was up to 6th and then went into 5th at some point, can't remember how that happened...

Towards the end of the race I found that Matthias had come a lot closer ahead of me (a incident for him I know now) and tried to close in but some trouble with lappings and then a big misstake into the hairpin saw me drop behind Yves and that's where I finished.


5th in Class and 6th Overall I'm really happy with, had anyone told me I could get a top 10 finish around here during practice and qualifying I'd had accepted it straight away :D


Thanks for the racing those I raced with and for the organization and to the team, the car was brilliant to drive tonight :clap:

Sorry to Chris for the tap, Michael for the scare and to Oyvind for when i hit you under braking, i think Dave may have scared you into it and it took me by surprise.  :doh:

Had some great battles, firstly with Phillipe M, then with Chris until our coming together and then a brief one with Michael at the end.

I hope we get the same amount of people at the next race at Brands Hatch Indy circuit.

Congrats to Ray on your first win. :first: :champ:
Congrats to Yves on the class win. :first:
Thanks to Pascal for the broadcast. :hello:
And thanks for everyone who turned up to make this race a great spectacle!  :drink:

Another group C race, another hit from the back and down to last on lap 1...


Qualy was hectic, couldnt get a break or a clean lap to save myself, but i was hoping that the long race would come my way.. but i wasn't meant to be :smil20:

Mixed feelings about the race. Couldn't get my sector times together in quali, but I accept the fact I'm not the greatest of qualifiers out there. Nontheless, its frustrating to see you could go half a second faster.

In the race, I lost a few positions on the start, began very defensive, thus could avoid the few disasters along the way, and was soon within a group that provided some very fun racing. During lap nine, I came in a position, where I could attack the guys in front of me, so I commited to the battle, gained a position, but in lap 10, Frank Penk and me got a bit together in the Maggots/Becketts complex, I lost the contact to the group, and from there, things went a bit backwards. My biggest problem was my car from then on. The car itself felt nice, balance was good, a bit twitchy on acceleration, a bit understeering perhaps, but good controllable. Just generally not fast, and not developing. I drove my fastest lap time pretty early in the race, and from then on, it wouldn't go any faster, I couldn't break the 1:10 mark. Later in the race, braking became a problem, and I lost a bit my confidence in the car. Almost let Richard Coxon pass, because I thought he was lapping me Rolling Eyes but he did that in the end, when I allowed Jacob Fredriccson to lap me. Towards the end, I hit some invisible object in the Becketts hairpin, which put me on the roof, and all of a sudden Frank was behind me again, and had a little contact again, which put me a bit of course, he waited for me to pass, but that opened the opportunity for Jan Titz to pass us both. Oh well...

My conclusion: It was one of the most intense races while it lasted, very competitive grid, but got a bit frustrating towards the end.

Raul, Not a problem these things happen on tracks with tight corners. I had no idea that you were trying to get up the inside, that area of the track is not really an overtaking area. My car was slow around those corners and very quick down the straights.

I qualified 3rd which was a surprise and looking forward to a good result. After the first lap spin I was trying hard to make up lost time and had a big spin which ended up with me hitting the wall and damaging the car. I kept fighting back but it seemed like every car wanted to have a big fight even when I caught them up very quickly. As the tyre wore I was taking too many risks and crashed exiting the chicane and the car hit the pit wall. With only a few laps left to the end of the race I tired to get a finish without getting in anyones way but the car was all over the track. Sorry I've held anyone up.
