Try to increase the rear roll bar and decrease the front. It works for me.

Lowering the graphic settings I've heard may work. But I know of no definite way to remove them.

Try lowering your "Own Car" detail, I believe that is where the problem, or realism of this, lay. If that doens't work, try lowering other items, but I'd assume that to be the place to look 1st at least...

Been all day with a quite bad migraine, will start the race last and see how it goes. If the headache persists or worsens while driving I will park the car. Neutral

I hope you feel better Alberto. I've had migraines and I know how hellish they are.  Neutral

Definitely not racing, can't concentrate enough to keep the car on track, every time I push the brake with some force it's like a pulsating pin sticking in my forehead.

I have no luck with this track Crying or Very sad

car got front left corner utterly trashed t1 after i dived off trying avoiding a car parked across the track and bounced off the barrier.

carried on when i probably shouldn't have. nudged someone into the old hairpin too for which i'm incredibly sorry, and after another spin i just gave up.

bleh.

The pace was not too bad, happy with the car now. Unfortunately i made a spin and drop out of the Top 10. I tried an overtake, but was pushed onto the grass at main straight. So i crashed, and race was over.

Looking forward to the next race :conduit:

Heh, i cannot imagine my race without any problem. On the start i got the drive-through penalty because i move a little bit (by couple of cm) with my car before we start to the formation lap. This i dont understand. If the game count this start as the start of the race dont know. I did a nice battle with Jonathan who has a more powerfull engine so on the straights he was much faster. I was faster in the corner so the overtaking was little bit different. When i won this battle in the chicane after few laps i did in the same chicane mistake and hitted the concrete tyres so then i was out. My god why me??

Apologise to those who were still on the server, Alt+Tab'd to have a check on something and the game wouldn't open up properly again...

I was really looking forward to this race as the Cougar suits the track quite well, not perfect as the 373' and Lola's showed me but well enough to keep up with everyone apart from Jacob and Ray in the top class Smile

Qualifying went as expected, towards the rear rows of the grid.

Had a decent start and was able to keep out of the caffuffle that Lap 1 turned out to be, avoided 3 different incidents in the 1st two laps Shocked

Got out of it in 7th or 8th place and laying 4th, I think, in class.

Decided to, after a few laps, let the faster guys of Martin and Dylan as the car still wasn't up to the level of performance I was waiting for.

After a few more laps I saw Raul in the pits and then another guy from the top class was off coming out of Coppice and I were suddenly in 5th place Surprised

Drove to what I needed which resulted in me letting Richard by when he came up to me in the 737 and after this point it was a fairly un-interesting race until Dylan had gone off at McLeans.

As I felt like I had more car under me I faught him for 5th Overall but in the end, after he tried a move at Old Hairpin I decided to, partly because I didn't notice him going for it in my mirror and I wanted the car to reach the finish, let him go by me and after that I just kept up with him and managed 6th overall and my 1st Podium in class of the season :D


Thanks to those I had battles with and for the event in general, really good fun :drink:

Congrats Ray.
I had problems with the brakes locking in the race and this caused me to spin into the barriers.

That was one of my better races i had so far (excluding the off track excursion that cost me 4th)

after avoiding all of the chaos of lap 1 i found myself surprisingly far up the field, and after all the cars having more trouble and Jonatan letting me by i found myself in 4th for quite a large portion of the race, but after some trouble lapping a single car Richard W closed the gap to 3 second, which i pulled a classic me move and cracked under the pressure going off track :doh:

when i rejoined i found myself back on the tail of Jonatan, who had gotten some more pace from our earlier encounter, after some lap following i (thought) i saw a opportunity coming down the hill with Jonatan taking a odd line, so i dove up the inside (something inside me thought that was a good idea, probably the desperation for that 5th place) and when i realized how crooked i was approaching the corner i just slammed on the ankers and hoped Jonatan would avoid me, which he couldn't in the end he let me by, even though i think i didn't really deserve it

in the end i finished in a nice 5th, which i think is my highest overall finish so far... reason enough to be happy :champ:


looking forward to next round!
