What a great night!!
I was really chuffed with 4th in qually. Pulled that one from somewhere unknown :D

Race 1 I had a great battle with Bacchulum after he got past me but I closed up on the last lap and stuck it up the inside at the final turn for 5th  8)

Race 2 While it was a bit depressing getting mobbed down the straights with the restrictor, it made for some really enjoyable racing. Great battles with Wally, SkilletKid, Rob, Shayne and a nice side by side around the fastest turn with ab156. A little bit of "Rubbin Racin" at times, but I believe that it was all above board ....
Happy with a 9th finish except that I was behind Wally :P

Note to Wally: I am listed as team "KNR Racing" where it should be myself and ab156 as team "Team SNRL". Thanks :) We hope that Keith will be able to join again at some time.

Lovin' this car. Can we extend the season  ;D ;D

Hey gents, thanks for the fun evening. Was an experience and I'm looking forward to racing through the season with you.

Sorry about the dropout in race 2. No idea what happened but got a total pc crash. Figured it wasn't worth trying to reboot and join in.

See you all next Tuesday (or perhaps in the practice server beforehand). Feel free to add me on steam (GymnasticHippo86)
That's a shame about the crash, but it happens. I'm glad you enjoyed it :)

Are the teams just a fun thing on the side or something else a bit more  serious?

It's just a way of combining two drivers' points towards a team's points. As well as the drivers' championship, there's team points standings. Some teams share setups with each other. It's also a good incentive not to crash into your teammate :)
It can also be a bit of fun if your faster teammate ends up behind you - do you take one for the team and let them past?


If you want to team up with someone, just let me know and invent a team name.

OK, a new team is born.
