Being English I do feel like I should support Lewis, but following him on Facebook and seeing how much of a bell end he is I like to see him crash more than do well. Looking forward to seeing what Vestappen will do this season.
Fun Run suggestion for Thursday 30-3-17
When are we due to start a new season? I was thinking that would start next week.
Here's the results for the two races:

I had a quick look. It didnt have any damage repair settings so wonder how that would work. On Tuesday i was able to click the aero button as I approached my box.It does, at the bottom, doesn't it?
Ah nice. I didn't see it like that, I just saw the extra menu when in the pits where I don't think it had it. Wonder if you can bind wheel buttons to the options.

Qualified 5th and had a great start to the race. Seanus made a nice pass early on when I still wasn't confident on the tyres but then pitted early. Had good pressure from Mael after that, then got into a rhythm putting in a few 1:50s opening the gap from Mael behind a bit. He pitted around lap 16/17 and I put in a PB so went in myself. No tyre warmers made it interesting, I came out quite a way in front due to Mael's slower out lap but his tyres were coming up. I managed to stay ahead for a lap before making a mistake letting him by.
Soon after that it looked like Jeremy was going to make a move up the inside of T1 then he didn't but I'd already based my braking and turn in to give him room which slowed me down enough for him to get past. Then had some good laps chasing until lap 23 where I got just a little too eager on the throttle out of T7 and spun and hit the wall. Was in 7th at this point and was a fair gap to Shayne so kept my place but the aero damage meant the car just didn't was to turn in and was costing me a couple of seconds. Was 8 or 9 laps to go so decided to pit and fix the aero but forgot to turn off the tyres in PitConfig so had to sit waiting for tyres which took twice as long as aero, then came out on cold tyres again towards the back of the pack. Doobs was 9 seconds in front and I was able to catch and pass him after a few laps but Wally and the rest were too far ahead.
Pretty disappointing. In hindsight looking at the spread I'd have been better off just staying out and loosing a few places. Oh well, it's all learning.

I've been keeping an eye on ROOZ for a little while; it's where Rolz races now and I sometimes pop on their praccy servers. If I had the time I'd race there too but 2 nights a week is as much as I can get away with at the moment Mael is another who also races with them.

I don't think I could go back monitors after VR it really is something else
Hear this a lot and is main reason I don't think I can make the jump yet. A lot of my practice if when the kids are up, watching TV or playing in the same room or whatever and I need to be aware what they are doing. If I could happily switch between monitors and VR it would be fine, but could I actually do that
It's all good and working again.
Good stuff. You'll want to copy your setups back into that folder too.

nah, just the standard ones. The inverted ones look really cool, but they are mighty expensive...Unfortunately I confirm that the brake pedal is completely gone---some signal any now and then, but fundamentally random. So I am off for this week's race.
Holy sheet they are; hadn't looked at the price. Hope you got the damper kit though
