I saw him sing it live at the 2011 race. It was pretty cool because the massive crowd was singing along with him; then the balloons rising into the air.

I apologies for the late Broadcast Event Creation.

I've been away on a birthday party for my Brothers Wife (whatever that is in a short word...) but I've only drunken a little bit of orange juice this weekend What a Face

Will be creating the broadcast in a few minutes, setting up the software at the moment, got home about 15 minutes ago to broadcast the race :top:

This is completely unacceptable, I am a man with lots of patience, but this I could not resist. It is ridiculous, simply ridiculous that people who can't see anything on the track because of lag continue in the game hitting the rest, causing damage, restarts and all this grief. It's egoistic and crazy. I am done with this race, I won't endure more of this shit, you can have your race better now with one car less, I hope that improves the lag for the rest.

If you can't see the field or have lag due to your internet, you shouldn't be racing. Simple as. Absolutely farcical, got plowed into in the middle of a caution twice by Chacon!!! The second of which ended the race for about 7 of the field.

CONDUITES IN-QUA-LI-FIA-BLES !!!

Je ne participerai plus à aucune course sur ovale sur ce mod.

EDIT : ok,ok, il n'y a que les imbéciles qui ne changent pas d'avis... mais quand on a lu lag et qu'on ne voit plus personne, on lève le pied et on se fait tout petit, même si c'est dur et très frustrant.

Guys, I used to drive in another series. There they did the yellows manually. So we'd have an admin that would throw the yellow and a guy driving the pace car. This way we won't have those issues.

Also why was everyone crashing even under yellow, was that due to the lag or what?

So sorry for everybody involved, most importantly for the admins pale You put so much effort in it. But i have no doubt that a re-run will be a big success Wink Just one thing - please, please, please, don't schedule it on the next Sunday, when the real race takes place.

im very sorry for the guys who invest free time and alow them by there wives , girlfriend to spend a whole evening for this result

what im gonna say now will not be appreciated by some but like playing in a server with 64 people at battefield players with above 120 will be kicked by server admins by lag and such
should be same here OR explore rfactor internet in custom settings before you ruing anybody els his timeless efford

same here this evening and what i saw at the back was well, aint gonna say it in my own words , Alberto did that already Rage

again very sad to end this evening hope the new indy race soon will be smooth!

Definitely lag, a lot of people continuing on for some reason despite it thus causing mega pile-ups under caution.

I agree with that. Surely after it happened the first time people could have realised what was going on?

They could have started from the pit lane, there were three laps to sort it out.

I'm sorry for the admin who've put a lot of effort in this, and everyone who sacrificed his evening.

Pay attention Matthew Hull, because my car was not damaged any time and for me, I did not hit anyone. You sure it was me that hit you?
You were leaving a queue behind me.

I think several people can verify that it was you who plowed through the field.

I looked at the replay and it certainly looked like your car.

Bruno: You did run into my car twice or even three times on the initial start, you didn't keep up with the line when we tried to do our pace laps, you crashed a hell of a lot during the race attempts. I'm not sure what caused that massive hit onto my rear in the last attempt, I think it was DellaCella rushing into Hull and then me, but if it was you, you really should overthink your driving under yellow. Just saying.
I hope this race doesn't get cancelled in total though, as Richard said, it's the biggest frickin race at HSO all year, so pray for the best.
