How do you know which judgements AB is disagreeing with? Who do you think is clearly at fault in R1, and why?I respectfully disagree with the judgements but won't dwell on it.I must agree with ab about R1. It's very clear.

Just wanted to throw something out there! Having acquired the Abarth last night I thought I owned it, howeverThat's what the entry fee is designed to do - make you slowly drift back down the car list (especially if you do well in it), so you can't just "fluke" a faster car after having a shocking round, and then get to keep that car forever. In the Porsche trial, people tended to go up and up the car list. This way, the people up the pointy end will slowly change.
As for the strategy, you can already decide to go with a cheaper car and maybe sacrifice some points to earn more cash for later rounds, especially if there's a future round coming up that might suit a faster car. For example, the people that drove an Abarth at Modena could have chosen to buy a cheaper car and not do so well, and then have the money for the Alfa 4C at the much faster Thruxton.

We've been round this many times... it's far too time consuming to judge every incident. My preference is that people are mature enough to realise that they stuffed up and try to learn from the mistake and try to improve their driving next time, for the increased enjoyment of everyone.
This was a tight track (the tightest and slowest of the season - average speed was only 105 kph), with 16 mixed cars on it. There's always going to be some bump and grind in this situation.
As AB said, a little redress goes a long way. But I emphasise to only do this when it's safe, without causing further mishaps by unexpected slow downs. Talking on Discord also makes your intentions clear.

Geez at this race I'm never going to be able to afford that M1 Only made $100 from the previous race.Coming 5th in the championship, you don't need the M1!
FYI, the Alfa 4C is in reach of some now.

Just one question, Wally, do I get the penalty money as consolation prize for R3 or the institution pockets it?Interesting suggestion. But I don't want to introduce a financial incentive to cause incidents

This round sees us at Thruxton, "the fastest circuit in the UK" (where I can afford a Mustang).
The races are 13 laps.

It's cold in England again - 11, 13 and 15, and cloudy.

That was a tough round. I got banged into from behind mid-corner more often than I would have liked. Maybe I had slow mid-corner speed, but I was turned around quite a few times. The Nissan was feeling very understeery in the last few laps of each race. I managed to get side by side with a few of the Abarths from time to time, but it was ultimately futile as they could just power around the corner. I didn't think I put a pass on anyone all night, apart from the starts. One of the race starts looks very impressive, with a bunch of Nissans all weaving around the slower Abarths and streaming past.

I'll laugh if there's one Mustang up the front with a whole line of cars queued up behind it, unable to pass.Welcome to the BMW brotherhood Phil I expect nothing less than a win from you!

The Beemer's doing OK(ish) here, in Mael's hands. But yes, I tried the BMW too and it feels very different to the Nissan. Much more sensitive steering, I find...... There are still a lot of Nissans in the entrant list, and I can't believe that nearly everyone wants to drive one
