Quali went reasonably well. Race one racing with some really fast and clean racing guys was awesome, good amount of side by side action with people giving each other room and absolutely no contact, this should be the norm, not a special event. Race two was the standard crash fest all round and by race three I have had enough so I’m out.

Hey Wally, not fussy, just about anything that DOESN"T include a reverse grid and I'm in.
Second the no reverse grid or top 10 reverse only, just causes carnage. Monday ROOZ fun run was reverse top 8 and that worked quiet well

Maybe because this poll was started in August 21, 2016 and probably long forgotten by most.
Ahh, did not realise it’s an ancient poll, thought it was current for next season

I'm just going to call it:
Both good, but must ask, what was the point of the poll considering neither of these were even on it? Lol

Yeah that was frustrating to say the least lol, surprised I managed to find the pace here in qual and keep up with phil race 1 as I couldn't learn the track in prac properly, but race 2 and 3 were torture getting caught up in everyones spin as they pinball off the walls, impossible to avoid and then a huge restrictor to boot so the car was horrendous again in race 3 where again I get caught up in everyones spin writing off my car lol, I really think the restrictor rule has to go it just compounds the effect of a shit race to much.
Absolutely, those restrictor are insane and need to go in my opinion. You are punished by driving with the damage then punished again with a very slow car for the next race. I’m sorry but if your pit crew can’t fix a car to race normally enough then it just gets retired, no one starts a race with a car that’s 4-5 seconds off the pace (except maybe Honda’s in F1, but even that’s a stretch). Cars that slow are dangerous on track. I figured I’d stay out of everything and watch the carnage here in race 3 so started second last and stayed off the throttle completely down the straight to make sure I had good distance, finished 7th anyway... fastest lap of race 3 was prety much dead on 2.37... lol

My reasoning is I was in front, I left a car width of track space available and I got hit from behind putting me in a wall.
I didn’t want to start it yet here we are. I’m not apointing blame, i don’t believe either is 100% responsible for it. I’m just giving my view of the incident. Seems I’m getting crucified for it though and copping a penalty

I'm good with whatever decision. Like I said I accepted the decision from the start even though in my mind it wasn't my fault at all as shit happens. It's only when I'm being told it was actually my fault I feel the need to defend myself as to me this is the most clear cut incident I've been involved in.
Thing is I didn’t complain about the decision either. After watching the replay I though racing incident was fair, we will of course both have different opinions on it but that’s racing. Then RussG had to get the pitchforks our even though he wasn’t involved and ironically the only one who is 100% at fault in the following incident for joining the track unsafely and hitting me, maybe he wanted to increase my damage restrictor....

So race stuards cave to public opinion, nice.
At the time of the hit I was absolutely fuming, end of the day it was a hit from rear left and caused me to lose all control of the car. There was no visibility of the car to the left at the time but I though Joe may be there somewhere and left a car width to my left, which is frankly all the the car behind is ever entitled to. Was a fairly messy start and my concentration was was much more on what’s in front. Looking at the replay it’s hard, I turned in slightly for the corner essentially following whoever the yellow car was but Joe went for a straighter line and clipped my rear left, angry but happy enough as a racing incident.
But then RussGmanUnit has to come on here and start his witch hunt and finger pointing as he clearly has issues with me in general. The same RussG who hit me on lap one by his unsafe rejoining of the track (which is a penalty on any lap in any Motorsport category btw). And to add insult to injury after trying to fight my way back up the grid from near enough last I score restrictor penalties, get bounced around like a ping pong and by race 3 end up with a car that can do a mid/low 1:33 at absolute best, so arround 3 seconds slower then normal, seems fair.

So last race where I got a good chunk of my car on the inside of Grat on the fast right hander and he turned not expecting me there you deemed as my fault. Now someone gets barely a nose in a place there’s nowhere to go and on the first lap and smashed me off track, essentially the same as the incident with me and Grat but in reverse and MUCH less overlap and you also deem that as my fault? Interesting consistency...

The 50kg penalty, looked to be worth about half a second, seemed fair enough. The 50 odd percent restrictive though by race 3 smashed another 2 seconds a lap to that, this seemed extreme.

I know we suppose to keep two wheels inside the white line but what if there are no white line, only a yellow one? Can we then use all of the curbThere's one in every crowd...
This is really the only way to keep it fair as otherwise there will be some people that do it sometimes, some that do it always and some that try to do it never but then take issue with people that do.
Also the server is set to allow 3 wheels out, so if I find myself a reliant robin I’m golden

Watched the replay a heap of times now, was hard and at times very close racing, unfortunate it ended the way it did as would have been an epic battle
Honestly this race was a bit of a disaster for me overall. Started going bad when I binned two different quali laps either of which should have hit the 18’s and got worse from there. Will be interesting from here, have never driven this current track and maybe 10 laps at the highlands so will need a heap of practice to keep up. Okayama and Laguna should be better

Different braking points I get, but braking where there’s no braking is dangerous.
I did apologise to you at the time and got no response. I can give you a heap of reasons why I did what I did but none of them will change anything so can we just please move on here?

As I had better acceleration at the time and wasn’t braking for that corner the aim was to get side by side down the straight more then a pass through the fast right as grat had very good speed in general and didn’t think he was braking there either. I thought I had that inside line. There was a role reversal in race 3 where grat got a run on me at that same corner and race room was given, probably to much as I REALLY wanted to avoid contact. Watched the replay a heap of times now, was hard and at times very close racing, unfourtunate it ended the way it did as would have been an epic battle
