J'ai installé dans l'ordre l'update physique, puis le patch 1.1, puis le patch 1.3 (3 fois) et quand je me connecte, j'ai toujours le meme message d'erreur. Pour l'instant je ne vois pas quoi faire mis à part attendre l'ouverture du serveur pour la prochaine épreuve et espérer qu'il n'y ait pas de soucis...

Wait and se...

My apologies to Philippe  Embarassed  The ADA is such a beast to handle, especially with limited practice; I should have taken a hint a few laps in and parked the thing.

I never go on fully confortable with the track, and that showed in the race, i dropped like a stone, and with a 360 spin all alone, i couldn't do no better than 4th in class. Still was a good race, and a great grid! Smile

@Steve Parker: Got the secondary pack aswell? Seems to be missing from my PC:

So I did finish this race.

Too bad I received a Stop&Go for avoiding Patrick Gibelin, even though I handed the position back Sad

Looks like I could have put my Harrier ahead of him and Konstantin.

I had quite a fun race, but I am so embarassed about the formation lap! I didn't know that there were marbles on the outside of the track, and when the grid stacked up, I steered wide and totally lost control!

I still had a disastrous qualifying sesson. I simply got on the server too late and didn't work up a rhythm. And my final attempt was ruined by a yellow car which simply reversed straight onto the track on the finish straight! Idiotic, really.

So my 16th qualifying position was 22nd at the start, so by finishing 4th I must've passed more cars than in any race ever before! Good thing was, all battles were very clean and sporting! Only contact I had in the race (I think) was a lapped car that wasn't aware how sluggish my poor Rondeau is under brakes. I was quite livid as it happened, but I know that my car has quite different characteristics than most other cars, so i understand that stuff like that happens in tight situations.

No podium, but okay result after all. Grats Ray and Yves, probably impossible to gain on any of them at this point. Smile

This car hates me, I'm sure! :urgence:

I got up to third on the opening lap, and on the second it just pulled right into the tyres at the final chicane. Lucky it didn't kill the engine so I got back on track. I passed a few cars, made a nice trip trough the grass but at least I finished, which is better than my usual performance in this series. :D

Finally got a finish. At the back of the grid but dammit, I finished cheers .

Also qualified my best ever here in the top 10 so was happy with pace. Hellacious scrap I think with Wilks until I spun her clipping the curbing at T2 all by myself. Dropped from I think 13th to 15th or something and then the two guys who overtook me had a coming together and guess what? Yup, I collected them and lost my splitter. Car was a real bastard thereafter so I pitted to repair and came back 2 laps down. Ah well. one of those things. But I finished! lol! and I learnt so its all good.

Thanks for the racing guys and hosting Richard. Catch yall at the next round.

Considering the fact that I didn't practice, ate two painkillers and drank two shots to ease the damned pain coming from my lower 8th tooth, it was a decent race.  From 17th to 5th was better than I thought it would be. An incredible fight with Richard! Amazing how your car handled in the turns. It's just a shame that I got rammed by Mick before T1 and not only did I suffer damage, it also pushed me into Michal (who got another hit a second later). I'm pretty sure it ruined his race.

Belle bataille  :top: , et tu étais beaucoup plus rapide  :clap:  !

Heureusement pour moi, que les vibreurs t'ont bien secoué, sinon je perdais le contact au championnat !

Etrange, d'ailleurs, cette situation de se battre à distance au championnat avec Ray, que je ne vois jamais en course :D

What a great race. (I guess that you can say that if you have a Alba).
I qualified 2nd 0.034s behind Ray and he pipped me on his final lap in qualifying. Good job Ray.
I decided to follow Ray at the start of the race so that we could pull a gap on the rest of the field. Then hoping that he would get held up lapping cars but the lapped cars were all very good at moving over (thanks guys). I made a couple of small mistakes but was able to close back up again but overtaking was going to be a big risk without Ray making any mistakes, I pushed towards the end of the race only for me to spin and that dropped me back to Jan Kowalski and I was being too careful to try and finish so Jan had a go at overtaking me but I just held on to finish 2nd. Very Happy

Grats for the wins Ray and Yves. :champ:

Excellent to see 28 cars on the grid. :clap:

Thanks for the youtube coverage :top:

Could have been me, but I was mostly waiting for the long straight to let people go as slowing down for the turns earlier than needed costs me hughe amounts of time.

I think I quite embarrassed some big cars with my opportunity to brake late and acclerate quickly :D

Indeed, really nice grid for a wednesday. cheers
Grats Ray, Bravo Yves and all participants. :clap:
Thx Pascal to cover this champ. :chinois:

From my side, the goal was to see the checkered flag. Succeed bet. Started from a poor 24th position, I finish quietly in 15th, with very few risks taken. :conduit:

See you to Ontario in order to cover you this time. :smil20:
And see you to Kyalami on track. :antoine:

That was the most intense race so far for me, the pressure you put me under David was great, It looked like you were faster than me towards the end. After you span to my horror I realized I didn't have enough fuel to finish at that pace and backed off considerably so you would have got at the end.

Another big thank you to Richard and for the broadcast.

Sorry again for the chat, but as i said to you, we was solving a techinical issue, so chatting is accepted in this instance, as the rules say

Quote :
A few behaviour rules :
- Chatting is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN in race session. It is allowed in qualifying sessions for technical issues only.

Two hours later and I'm still super dissappointed. It started pretty well, I could for once get all my sectors together and qualified in fifth, which made me very satisfied. Start of the race was good, too, could defend my position and even crawl up one place, thanks to the help of other drivers Wink Yves Placais did me a favour and held up the guys behind me, but shortly after halftime, some guys were creeping up behind me, but a points finish was probably still possible. Then I perhaps overcooked my left rear tire, because all of a sudden, I lost the car entering turn two and went back to 10th position. I had a short fight with Juha, which was a little frustrating, because he simply pulled away on the straights, while I made up all the time in the corners. At some point, I overestimated his speed in the left/right-combo after the backstraight and hit him in the back - sorry for that. A while later, he went wide in T1 and got P9, but in that very competitive field, it was impossible to gain another position.
What probably didn't help, the second start attempt fouled up my GID, and late in the race, I had a few cars appearing and dissappearing right in front of me affraid

Yep, bloody stupid......again..... Knowing I would not be able to see a brake marker, I did not have the presence of mind to keep my distance.....I had no intention of "making up places".

Sorry to all effected......again
