Was a great cship this one cars were a surprise for me didnt think they be as awesome to drive as they were, was a great one to win and i was pretty happy with how i setup the car and drove most the races. Thanks wally for all the hard yards you put into the league its fantastic!
For what ever reason the car didnt work here so i was off the pace a bit but i wasnt too fussed as all i wanted to do is aim for a podium as thats all i needed to do. Qualy i got 5th which wasnt ideal but i couldnt do much more lol. Race 1 got away nice and clean and was behind phil and kero before they came together and i inherited p2, that was more than enough for me so i just cruised to the finish in p2 which was better than i expected and would ease the pressure for race 2.
Race 2 i was super cautious lap 1 and had a few incidents in front of me that raised the heart rate but i survived and was 3rd behind bachulum and joe watching them battle out, after a few laps joe got past and i followed suit. Joe had good pace and i couldnt do much about it without risking too much so there wasnt much of a gain when p2 again would be more than enough for me so i sat back but joe was driving great anyway and pulled away so congrats to him on his first win good to see

Was very happy to have a sweep for the night qual was intense being very close so was happy to top it off with a nice lap in the end.
Race 1 i didnt get a great launch so phil jumped me but then i saw he got a drs penalty so my plan was to just lap with him and not risk anything, was a great pressure race with some decent times being posted but after the pits i inherited the lead after phil got caught up with the lapped traffic. Cruised home and went for the fastest lap a few times to secure maximum points
Race 2 i felt like dan ric a bit with everyone in front of me making mistakes so i just gravitated to the lead lol and once again went for the fastest lap and cruised for the win

I think you will find kcender ran into me race 1 wally lol
was happy with qual, got a decent launch was going to settle behind grat but then kcender had a moment into t4 and clipped my car, fell mid pack and had a great time fighting back to p2 with a awesome battle with phil and joe for the podium.
race2: messy start thought there was another crash going into t2 up my inside so i went straight across to dirt in fear lol came back on slow and got taken out car was heavily damaged was like driving a truck but found myself p5 but then trying to push a little to catch simone the thing just went straight at the last turn where kcender was waiting and that was it for me, went back to pit to fix car came 18th... no luck at all that one...

I shouldnt drive when i have been up since 5am on 5hrs sleep lol, surprised i got pole i wasnt happy with any of my laps.
Race 1: Got past grat after he got me lap 1, was looking good and i bumped the drs button... so i assumed i needed a 5 sec gap so i pushed pretty hard all race got it too 4.5 when i pitted. Came out the pits behind a lapped car went to overtake it at the hairpin but the gap disappeared and i clipped them trying to pull out and it put me into a spin. then i think chap found my stranded car and he watched me struggle to find reverse lol and that was the end of that race so came 4th or something.
Race 2: Got hit into t1 from behind got wing damage so the car was twitchy but i decided to still push for kcender and the thing just spun on entry at the right hander at the start of s3 and again someone found my stranded car and damaged my front wing and I limped home 11th... an awake me may have saved the car who knows an annoying error lol

What a difference it makes doing some prac before a race lol car was fantastic but then again I love Austria so we see how we go next round I must test again
Was super pumped over my qual lap that felt great haha not much more in it, race 1 was all about getting a clean get away on lap 1 which I managed and from there I managed the race to the fin for a nice win
Race 2: A bit tricky from 8th was behind the grat and kcender spin and just missed them, parting my way through the middle. Knowing Jeremy was out front it was difficult to keep momentum picking people off 1 by 1. I think lap 6 I got to p2 about 6 secs behind Jeremy and set hunting him down I got it down to the 2 sec mark by the end but got distracted going into the final turn and had a lame half spin lol so lost my time and had to settle for 2nd in front of kcender But 2 nd was all I would of got anyway Jeremy started to pick up his pace so it was a nice 1 2 either way

Surprised how fun these cars are to race very nice
Race 1 never raced this car so i bogged it instantly off the line and fell back to 6th lol, Had jeremy in front so I stayed behind him as he had pace and was able to claw the positions back but it turned out most of the people in front of us spun so jeremy ended up leading and i was p3 but got caught behind a spinning car he just passed I so lost time to jeremy. So from there I was doing qual laps trying to bring down the 4 sec gap to jeremy and phil, i realised i didnt set the tyre pressures for my incoming so i stayed out to lap 17 or so to reduce the hurt lol, i tried slowly driving in the pit lane to adjust the pressure but my box was to close to the pit entrance so it was in vein and it cost me coming out of the pits in front of jeremy and phil. Car handled crap with the over pressured tyres but i then saw jeremy got a time pen so now phil was leading in front of me so that built the motivation to pass and i got him in the drs zone and that was that
Race 2 got a nice clean start and picked people off 1 by 1 until i got to p2 and saw kcender to far out the front with good pace so i settled for p2 A far simpler race compared to race 1 but all good fun!
DRS app was a nice touch too
Figured this mod might be of interest to a few people here
and a update patch
Here is a link to the creators thread, you need to register but its worth it there a few mods and tracks on there worth getting.
Its a very well made mod the models are great and the physics seem pretty good with the car handling the way id expect, only issue for me is the soft tyre over heats a little to easy so just use the hards and the shift animation is off lol but apart from that a very solid mod im having a blast driving these things! Around eastern creek i was doing low 29's which is on par to the real life times.
