In the beginning I took it very easy. Got overtaken by some cars and tried to just stay away from incidents. In the first 20% of the race I was able to keep up with the other group c junior cars, but after that they were quicker than me. I was aiming for 3rd in class as both Dana and Dylan was faster. In the slalom sections I was so slow. Car so understeery. Maybe wrong setup
But as this is racing strange stuff can happen. First Dana crashes and later Dylan spins when he is closing in for the overtake
After that i was just trying to survive the slalom sections. Was close to crash sometimes so a big relief when I crossed the finish line.
Thanks for hosting this championship
LOL had you waited so long to say more than two words together Simon? I think this is BY FAR the longest post I have ever seen from you
Heartly congratulations on your victory, it was so strange you had not one already

Thanks for telling me of my Trail Braking situation.
It seems like they are constantly sticking to 8-12% so that explains some of the lack of speed I've felt in the past week and a half...
Just strange that it's been completely clean of problems ever since I baught the wheel (about 5 years now) but I suppose there is always a 1st time for everything
This coming weekend will be my first time cleaning Potentiometers, I've found instructions and I've got some electric cleaner fluid (a good side to having a former builder/mechanic as my father) and will try just spraying it full of it and try to clean it as well as I can without actually removing the pm and see if it solves it, if not I will take it apart completely. Hopefully I won't have to as it seems like a very fiddly piece of work
Cheers and wish me luck

If you are scared entering a corner, you are pushing to hard, if you are bored entering a corner, you aren't pushing enough, if you hit it perfectly, it will be better than love

Hey, so does anyone remember the timing bug? Where multiple people experienced that after going through the pit lane, the game would stop timing for that particular driver? And how "we can't fix it"?
Well, I'll be damned but I fixed it. It's really such an easy fix it's incredible it hasn't been seen right when this race was planned.
The rundown on the bug was like this, and this is how I got to the root of the issue. Looking at how it acts, it happens when you go through the pits. Looking at the timing MFD, as soon as you exit the pits, crossing the XPitOut.gmt, the game sets your SECTOR 3 to 0:00.000 and locks timing. So I thought something was wrong with the XPitOut.gmt.
Looking into the scn file, which is the only place where these files, XPitIn and XPitOut are defined, I didn't see any issue at first. Here's what it looks like.
Now the million-dollar question: Where's the difference? It's one line. One tiny line.
The million-dollar answer is this line in "Instance=Xpitin" and "Instance=Xpitout":
Not to mention that pitin and pitout sectors should never respond with TIMING, these lines seemed to confuse the game and cause the lockup. So, the fix is literally quite easy. Remove the line that says "Response=VEHICLE,TIMING" in the SCN. I tried that out, and the track now works perfectly.
I've uploaded a fix here: Diepholz Timing Bug Fix
I hope I could help at least someone here who's been looking for a fix for this nasty bug.
