Sorry guys, I'll have to free the car for this round.

I've been selected to drive FSR WC for Drillers Motorsport, and with the race starting when qualy here starts, I won't be done in time.

And I won't count on a possible retirement from that event, so somebody can drive my nice McLaren if he wants.

@David Jaques: Considering the "limited number of different cars you can drive as one-offs" rule, you should go for Jundt's car which is the same you have already driven before.

Even though the #54 McLaren is given a different model name, it still uses the M8E physics, which is one of the three cars David has already driven.  Being that it is essentially an M8E with another name, I will allow this one-off drive.

Absent, morning commitments ran late and no time to qualify/test the surface changes. Sad

That was fun Neutral I tried to crawl through the pile-up and hit another car slightly. Thinking I only punctured the right front (would've stopped then and there had I known the entire wheel had gone missing) I made it to the pits only to find out the pit spot is wonky somehow and the crew won't even do their job.

That didn't last as long as I would have hoped,

Good speed with my car, just two stupid mistakes on my own behalf ended my race. Flipped my car in turn 4 and I hope I didn't impede anyone's run through there? tried to ESC as quick as I could

Good luck to everyone else in the race!

Admin woes + lack of sleep + having to buy a new wheel and learn it in two hours = DNF  Sad

Also, my sincere apologies to Mick for continually spinning in front of him Embarassed

Thanks guys for a ruined race. You guys especially Austin Ogonoski in the front think that your collision with anybody else could ruin also a lot of car behind you.

A great race from my point of view Very Happy . A nice little scrap with Yves until he was involved in somebody elses accident, which I just managed to avoid, then a steady run to the finish.
Thanks to everyone for good driving when I was overtaking. :top:
Thanks to the commentary team. :hello:

Did a great start, but was caught up in the Big One on lap 2. Having been ill this week, I called it quits after I spun out from 10th place. Just didn't have the concentration, it being a job night and all.

That was an interesting one! Qualified in the teens and screwed up by typing "sry" in chat after bumping a car in the last turn during qualy. Sorry, I know and respect the rule, but my hand was faster than my brain!

I gained a lot of places from wrecked cars in the first laps, but also got a bit of damage going by some two wide because I got scared and pushed a bit into the car next to me trying to get away from the wreck. Damage wasn't bad though, only slightly bent steering.

I then got into a long fight with Juha Bos whom I eventually managed to overtake for fifth and pull away from slowly. I was even able to catch up to Ray Riddall after he had what looked like bad luck with lapped cars resulting in a bit of time lost. I even overtook him after he made a small mistake, but he seemed to be faster behind me than in front and I couldn't pull away no matter how hard I tried! So we fought it out over several dozen laps to the very end of the race. It was really intense trying to defend, not lose time and not murder the tyres at the same time! In the end I managed to hold fourth by defending pretty heavily.

After pressing suspension bushings with hand tools earlier this week the tendons in my hands still hurt a bit from the race,  but it was worth it. It was a pleasure to race with you lot. All the lappings I was involved in were done nice and smoothly, both from the faster and slower cars! Thanks for the race and the battles!

Bravo David, tu étais le plus rapide ! :top:

Pour moi, la course s'est bien passée jusqu'au 59ème tour (1:14:40 sur le replay), un accrochage dans les Esses entre David et Bruno laisse ce dernier en travers sur la trajectoire. Bruno, voulant la libérer au plus vite recule au moment où j'arrive avec Raul et Timo dans les roues, gros gros carton, mais la Ferrari est solide, avant détruit, mais j'arrive à repartir et finis la course en suivant Raul qui a réussi, lui aussi à repartir. C'était chaud, mais bon, cool une deuxième place, mais faut vraiment se sortir les tripes pour tenter de suivre des Mc Laren !

Vivement la prochaine !

Managed to weave through the carnage of lap 2 and had good few laps with Ray,then lap 14 lost concentration when in 4th and shifted into wrong gear entering the esses and blew the Engine :doh:
Grats to Dave :first: and Yves and Raul for podium :clap:
