No prob Troy Wink

Btw, expect something new to download tomorrow, I don't know yet if it will be a new track version or just a new track.ini as I managed to fix the pitlane bug for qualifying but Brendan also sent me a new track version ...
There will be no grip changes and the layout will not be altered either.

Sorry if it's a bit of a mess but Antoine, the series admin, is having some serious and unexpected personnal issues at the moment.

Its gettin very late here in France, gonna have some sleep before racing in the streets of Palm Beach :conduit:

I unfortunately fell ill on Friday and was worried I wouldn't be able to be competitive in the race as I didn't do any practice until earlier today and in the session. Gui was the clear pacesetter and but overall if I could hold on it was going to be a Bud Light Jaguar with the win. Unfortunately Gui was lagging very much, for me at least, and I felt very bad to punt him on lap 2 but at the apparent "contact" his car was not even on my screen and before it he was warping around about .3-.5 seconds ahead of me.

Anyway I was in control after that. The car was driving very well, the feedback problem I had now solved. There was some traffic that was heavily warping but for the most part all was okay. I was beginning to feel the challenge of the task about 50 laps in (just a general body ache) but I knew I could make it to the finish and all was going according to plan. I was sweating a lot and whenever it would stop I'd begin to feel crappier again so I would pick up the pace. I came out of my stop, got reacquainted with the tyres/fuel load and was looking forward to the win which I would have been so pleased to take on account of my being sick and to continue my zero retirement record. To my utter disgust, I reached for a drink on the first long straight (the straight I always used to do anything outside of 100% focus) but somehow I missed my braking point, bounced off the apex wall and into the tyre barriers. I really have never felt so low before especially after watching Davy Jones, in the 2, win this race earlier today, I can't believe I could throw it away like that so close to the finish. Although Gui was fastest and I'm sorry for the lag mishaps, it's safe to say a Bud Light Jag was going to win today and I threw it away.

:doh: Sad Sad :urgence:

Nice win Kevin. You might have been the only mistake free car out there. Good drives for Bill and Milt too. Thanks to all for giving room and racing as clean and fast. :conduit: There were a lot of sitatuations to avoid to keep us on our toes. Very happy I wrecked no one again. :cowboy: That's always my goal. The streak continues at Sebring. Lets get a bunch of cars on the grid for that one.

Nice lights win Andre, and top 5 too! :champ:

Well no need to say how frustrated I am.
I had put a lot of practice for this race after my bad start at Daytona, and wasnt expecting anything else but winning after taking pole.But all my hopes disappeared in lap 2 when Sasha bumped me at turn 1.
Even if you did not see me, I can't understand why you braked that late as the contact was really brutal Suspect
After that my race went from bad to worse, I bumped a Nissan at the hairpin :doh:, crashed heavily into another Nissan stopped in the middle of the road at T3, and finally Sasha bumped me again at the hairpin on lap 13. One lap down after 10 min of racing, with a badly damaged car, and involved into too many accidents, that was enough for me so I quit. Crying or Very sad

It has been one month now that I can't get a good result because of stupid mistakes, from me or other drivers, or just bad luck and that really piss me off Evil or Very Mad

Race was ok, but lots of drivers could not go on the track during practice and happy hour because their cars were stucked in the pitwall (yes, in ).

I didn't brake later or much later than normally. Plus as I said, before you disappeared, you were enough ahead that you should have cleared that area of the turn. The actual contact surprised me very much because you weren't even there. Besides, lag contact can be much harder than otherwise because of the ping.

All I can say is I've never raced for so long behind anyone warping that bad. The second time I bumped you I followed about .5 - 1 second slower than I was lapping before for 2 laps and your car was everywhere. I think my connection wasn't very good today either so maybe the two combined. There is really nothing I could do around you, mate, besides pull over.
