I had another fun night of racing with some unexpected results thrown in for good measure. Congratulation to Joe on the R2 win and the other podium finishers. R1 I was happy to qual 5th and settled into some close racing with Bueller and Rob, and Wally, Joe and Bird leading the pack. It took a while to get past Rob and then I start chasing down the leading three. I got to third place, after Joe made a few mistakes and really had no chance of passing Wally and Bird. Bird finally caught Wally and I was close behind them. From some earlier practice during the week with Bacchulum, I knew battling for position on this track was fraught with danger
and decided to just wait and see, sadly Bird and Wally had a minor collision and I was handed the win, that's two wins in two weeks (unheard of, in my simracing career
R2 Starting from the back of the pack really is something else
with the lap times so close you really do not have much of an advantage over anyone else, it is really hard work to make any progress through the pack and you are dependent on other drivers errors. I take my hat off to Mael ,Bacchulum and Phil for deliberately choosing to drive slower cars and starting from the back of the pack, especially Mael in the 911(the car I also would have chosen if it was a bit faster)
Sorry for the tap in race 2 Bacchulum, I did not realise you were redressing a contact with Mael
I had some fun giving Wally a few scares and finished 7th.
I am very impressed with this mod and how it is able to compress the abilities of all drivers, as shown by 1 second covering the top 8 qualifiers. Some cars are faster than others but not by much and everyone seems to end up on a pretty equal footing. I remember the GTR2 mod Power and Glory did the same with a very similiar car selection. Does anyone have any theories as to Why It Is So?
I disconnected from Discord just before R2, I am using a Logitech G933 wireless headset which has it's own Tx/Rx module (not Bluetooth) , with Teamspeak I was able to walk out of range of the Tx/Rx module and when I was back in range Teamspeak would automatically reconnect, it appears Discord is not able to. I least now I know and the sound quality with Discord is excellent.
