Same, had a slow but reliable setup but just could not keep away from other drivers incidents. Its the first XGN race I've been involved in with so many off-road excursions, shows the cars were pushing us to the limit

I know we tried once to have points not based on a 32-1-1-1-1-1... Some people complained a lot. But I have to admit it feels a bit funny to be 17th of the round after winning the feature race in an F2 weekend
I'm a fan of our current points settings as it places a premium on finishing. It discourages heroic, desperate passing maneuvers that have a high chance of ending in an accident. Its better for a driver to leave enough space for clean racing rather than risk an accident and a subsequent DNF.
As for the races, two very enjoyable races, lots of passes and being passed . Did one dive bomb on my team mate on the last chicane last lap, was not successful bit it did force him into a mistaken DRS activation . Race two was a race long battle with Shayne, he had fantastic drive out of corners and it took me a long time to make a pass stick!
I definitely cant get a good setup for this combo.... Been pushing into the 1:56's but cant be consistentI wouldn't mind getting into the 56s.
Well I would mind Wally, seems Joe is already too fast for me and with Grat in warp-drive both Freezer and me is going to have to finish ahead of you to avoid falling behind in the teams battle
Its been a while since I've been 4 seconds off the pace. Worst is it does feel like I'm driving well, no major mistakes and close to the limit but still the laptimes is on the 59's.
The only hope I've got is that there is going to be a huge pile up in Eu Rouge between the leaders.
We might need to figure out how to get MR ratings on the practice server. I've been taken out by so many idiots driving backwards!
(My theory is there are players being paid by other game developers to make Ac multiplayer look bad, what other reason can there be for so many idiots?)

We can do another Alfa/Porsche cars swap next week on a different style track and then we are all ready for Season 9.
The Alfa/Porsche around Highlands Short? In my view one of the better tracks that deserve more attention. Like a short Monaco only without the ridicules hairpins.

ps: Hey Mael!!! what happened in front of the finish line mate? i almost crashed into your rear?!!! ahahhahahahaa
I had 1.5 laps worth of fuel to do 2 laps Coasted most of the last lap (sooo frustrating) but finally ran out with about 200m to go!

Race 1 crashed into a wall while adjusting pit strategy, got a 10 second cut penalty. Race 2 ran out of fuel. Enough said
(I drove bad enough in the first part of race 1 that Bacchulum's T2 push had no effect on my race Wally. A penalty for two races in a row is a bit tough so can we let that one slide?)

Going to be an interesting race. Managed to roll the car after getting a bit aggressive over the curbs
Hilariously no, lost the back end while on full throttle in the infield section launching myself into the barriers and somehow landed upside down.
