Hmmmm... random discos are an "act of god", but I feel bad for a track issue kicking people, especially race leaders. I think I'll still award Matthew 2nd place and Diehard 3rd place, based on where they were when they were kicked, and lap times (still rewarding Kcender for winning the race).

Fair enough I think  :P

Think that was my worst race for many months.

First lap I misjudged the length of Bacchulums car spinning out on one of the long sweeping curbs. The after a decent recovery drive from about 30 minutes onward I started falling asleep as a number of the LMP encountered technical difficulties. This left me in the middle of nowhere with no-one to race  :'(   About 10 spins, two 10  second cutting penalties and toasted tires a recovering Diehard finally came and kept me company. That was until the last lap which when a loss of control caused another accident this time taking Diehard and a unknown GT3 out. Apologies guys.

Fun track  :)

Agreed but they do rely on the fact that the leader bunches the field around the final corner before the start.

So it is all Grat's fault?  ;D 

Did a few exploration laps, it certainly is a different circuit. Track cuts is going to be an issue for me but did end up having to run a longer top gear. Since the boost is not worth much in the corners you can save it for the two long straights  :)

Had fun annoying Mael at the start but I was using too much juice, so concentrated on beating Wally.
A slow in lap let him by but I was just teeing him up when I disco'ed, :(
Can't remember disco'ing in AC before......

LOL  Not sure if it was me annoying you!  Apologies for the contact in that first chicane, it is a corner that always does my head in. Got a surprising amount of damage front and rear from that scuffle. I had a spin by my lonesome later in the race at that chicane which probably cost be a place to Diehard.

Going on the practice server times Grat is going to walk over us  :-[
Grat is getting huge speed down the straights compared to me. More boost? Less wing?

Maybe skipping the chicane in the back straight?

Played with the Porsche's setup in an effort to make it easier to drive consistently; and succeeded beyond expectation. Unfortunately as side effect it appeared that I tuned all the speed out of it!

Still except for the last couple of laps in race 2 there were always someone to race with. I was genuinely impressed by the driving standard of the racers who passed me, had no serous contact with the diminutive Porsche during the two races. :)

Now back to the drawing board on that setup.  :o


cannot join the server again.

Same  :o

That make 3 out of 4 races this season being stuffed by contacts (:

Keep on using your bad luck during this season, I expect only good luck next season.  ;D

The Toyota was certainly the fastest car, especially on softs. Lost a bit of time to Matthew and Diehard during the opening phase after mechanical difficulties (Windows did an upgrade in the background) but managed to quickly catch up. Matthew's medium tires were a bit slow. Tried the undercut but poor driving after my pitstop cost me any chance of a win. Nice work Matthew.

My day was made when I lapped Wally  :P

Watched a bit of the European Le Mans series Algarve race highlights. Even with professional drivers there was a LOT of accidents when the Lmp's lapped the GT cars. Some of them would have earned a race ban from Wally, appeared really clumsy.

ah man I am an idiot.

Kept on getting errors on joining so assumed it is the cars. Downloaded the cars so many times in my effort to fix it that I probably blew my monthly data allowance already.

Turned out my copy of the track is outdated  ? :o

Hi peeps,

Im pooEyes but if you get to know, me call me Dan. I'm in Adelaide, 37, love a bit of gaming in the evenings.

I recently got back into AC after getting MK1 escort DLC  ;D (so much fun).

I'd like to get involved in some racing with people, and you guys seems well organised.


You sadly just missed a great season in that Escort, welcome Dan.  :P
