RACE RESULTS
SEASON STANDINGS

Penalties: Mael had passed Bacchulum and was just clear, but Bacchulum sped up a little and hit Mael, who was still on the racing line, in the rear corner, spinning him off the track and causing him to lose several positions. Because Bacchulum should have backed off a little once cleanly passed, a penalty is issued (an extra 25% restrictor).

Well that was fun until the server kicked me when I entered the pit lane. Was 3rd after Matthew and Kcender at the time. Rejoined the server and did the laps but looks like it put me in 20th  :(

Bugga diehard, custom track issue by the sounds of it.

I hadn't prepared much for this race then saved my setup in another track folder by accident but didn't know which one DOH.. found something suitable and did some quick changes from memory, didn't expect to do much for the race.. qual 3rd last and just kept behind rexology, settled in and we gave each other pressure all race on and off.. I pitted a lap earlier than rexology and by the time I came around again he was just leaving the pits so i was pressuring him again, finally passed and put in place defensive driving in the corners so he had to go around the outside. LMPs made it hard at times to stay on track but in all a good race.  Thanks rex, good close racing.

I still had 2nd gear maxed on the limit just to keep up, guessing my ratio was a little lower than the rest, by the time we got to the line there was a reasonable gap of about 4-5 car lengths.

Think that was my worst race for many months.

First lap I misjudged the length of Bacchulums car spinning out on one of the long sweeping curbs. The after a decent recovery drive from about 30 minutes onward I started falling asleep as a number of the LMP encountered technical difficulties. This left me in the middle of nowhere with no-one to race  :'(   About 10 spins, two 10  second cutting penalties and toasted tires a recovering Diehard finally came and kept me company. That was until the last lap which when a loss of control caused another accident this time taking Diehard and a unknown GT3 out. Apologies guys.

Started 5th in the GT3 cars having my best lap affected by an LMP squeezing past me pushing me off line. Phil got past me into T1 and I was close behind him for a while. I was getting loads of stuttering which was distracting me and I couldn't see why. My memory CPU and GPU usage seemed normal, but it is a pretty hot evening here so it could be time to update the cooling in my PC. I was also running Z1Dash for the first time with the AC app which provides it additional data so I did think maybe it was that, though I had no issue during the entire practice when it was running.

Had a good chase on Phil during most of the first half of the race until he had a coming together with Bacculum and I was able to get past. Russ was about 8 seconds in front and I spent a lot of time slowly chipping away at that gap when with around 20 mins to go passing LMP cars and his battle with Freezer had me close behind. Russ gave Freezer and small tap and spun himself giving me that spot. I then had some great laps right on Freezer's tail with Russ close behind. I had pace in corners but Freezer made that understeery boat hard to pass.

After several laps like this coming into the last tight hairpin my tyres were starting to go and when I braked I knew I was going to either be very close to, or give Freezer a tap from behind so I moved over to the inside to avoid that from happening. It was in no way a pass attempt, but Freezer took the corner pretty wide. Unsure if it was to give me room as at that point I had the car under control and wasn't intending on going up the inside until I saw the gap. That allowed me to get ahead and build up a bit of a gap to the GT cars behind finishing 2nd in the GT3s.

I tried a stop in qually after hearing people say it kicked them back to the pits if you overran the pit lane. I went in really slow and still managed to do it. I guess in race in kicks you out rather than back to pits with a penalty  ???

Hmmmm... random discos are an "act of god", but I feel bad for a track issue kicking people, especially race leaders. I think I'll still award Matthew 2nd place and Diehard 3rd place, based on where they were when they were kicked, and lap times (still rewarding Kcender for winning the race).

That's the fall creator update, its crap, causes sssssstuttering, wont really notice it on practice server with only a few cars , lots of posts about it, Only way I can alleviate it is by using NVidia driver 388.00, but its still not the best, not even vsync or fast sync totally fixes it  would think I have a 960 not a 1080ti since that update :(

All I can say id roll back if you can,  I unfortunately cant because I did a clean install with FCU included :(

Sorry, fixed. It was just the round points in that post (they were still from the week before).
