Thanks, I had decent pace if I managed to do a whole lap. Screwed my car in the first couple of laps and lost 20 -30 seconds just tooling around. It was all a blur......mainly because my windscreen was shot from lap two till when I pitted. LOL

Worst feeling car I've had in weeks and I couldn't get any consistency at all.
Did my usual half spin and damage the car early so I had to peek through a broken windscreen for the first half of the race. That didn't help.
After that, it all went pretty much the way it had all week and I did the odd good lap, (not great), but couldn't drive consistently enough to catch anyone.
I don't know where I finished, all I know is it was disappointing.

Another wasted race for me.
Three spins coming off slow corners early and I lost a lot of time. I got stuck behind people and couldn't manufacture a pass because I was faster through the twisty stuff and not fast enough off the slow corners to stay with them on the straights. It was a bit frustrating but if I hadn't made mistakes I wouldn't have been in that position.
Good racing though.

I didn't qualify as well as I thought I might and started in 12th. Had an ordinary start but gained a couple of spots because of a collision in front of me. Got caught out with the cold tyres and looped it, caught back up and promptly looped it again and damaged the car. After that it was all good and got back up to 6th and on the last lap before I pitted came over a crest and found Freezer in the worst position he could be, smacked the car hard and broke it. No point continuing because I would have been in the pits for over two minutes and I was really pissed off. Not pissed off with you Freezer, just with the circumstances. It's not often I'm competitive.

Nah, the setup was fine Wally, it was a driving thing.A better setup might help with consistency. I made far less mistakes this round with a more stable setup.I'm starting to feel like Danny Glover, I think I'm too old for this shit. I was slow and made mistakes galore.

I don't think that was the case Mael, I had a setup that should have let me race around 10th but I drove like shit.
I couldn't do a clean lap in qualifying, and didn't improve in the race. The practice all week was the same. I couldn't have posted a time about 8/10s to a second faster but I kept making an error at least once a lap in different spots.
I had a good race about 6 weeks ago and haven't driven well since.

I joined the server just as qualifying finished with no practice, no laps, no Daytona setup and I chose to use the one that worked well at Spa.......It did not here, and the race went as expected. I'm looking forward to the next race when I can get some practice.

Hahahahaha Wally.I think I might be missing this one. I'm going to Sydney for a spot of Hurling and won't be getting back into Brisbane AP until 8 EDST.Hurling, as in throwing trees around???
Nah, Hurling with the hurley and the sliotar and a bunch of madmen running around at 1 million miles an hour. There's a match for the Irish Festival on Sunday.
