Race 1 clipped a wall early on in the town section giving me a red bumper then clipped another a lap later breaking my windscreen. After that I was just a sitting duck. Also had an incident with Wally at the right hander at the bottom of the hill. I braked pretty early so I could keep the inside line and didn't expect Wally to go for the apex. Not 100% sure on fault for that one so I stopped until Wally could turn around and let him go ahead.
Race 2 I was just a few cars behind a spinning Simone but was hanging back a little through that corner which meant I was able to pretty much come to a stop and get through the carnage. Got all the way up to 2nd closing in on Phil with Killa close behind and my accelerator dropped to 70% going up the hill at the end of lap 5. I had to wait for a few turns later to pull over and replug but less than lap later it did it again, so had to pull over again. Finished somewhere near the back.
Before race 4 I gave the little sensor a spray with some compressed air and a jiggle and it was better but still jumping a little on full throttle. Need to take it off and realign the magnets. Race 3 was good though, made a few passes then had good pressure from Shayne for a number of laps. Finished 3rd I think. Shame about the race 2 technical issues or would have likely been a good round.

My reasoning is I was in front, I left a car width of track space available and I got hit from behind putting me in a wall.
I want to drop this but none of this is true. Sure call it a side by side racing incident as wally called it at the start but pointing blame at me is pretty unbelievable.

I'm good with whatever decision. Like I said I accepted the decision from the start even though in my mind it wasn't my fault at all as shit happens. It's only when I'm being told it was actually my fault I feel the need to defend myself as to me this is the most clear cut incident I've been involved in.
I don't come here to win, I come here just to have fun. I've never said a bad word on voice chat and I don't complain really in the forum, and this type of drama kind of takes the fun out of it.

There was no visibility of the car to the left at the time but I though Joe may be there somewhere and left a car width to my left, which is frankly all the the car behind is ever entitled to.
I'm always happy to accept fault when it's my own, but you failing to accept fault here is beyond me. Here is the point you made impact with me: EDIT: Watching it that was where you turned into but the contact happened just after where I was closer to the curb.
A split second before that I was even further along side but I eased off the throttle to keep to my side of the track. You didn't give a car's width; you went straight for the apex. A clear mistake you don't seem to want to accept.
Insulting people of your first season too. Off to a good start.

I accept Wally decision as I did from the start, but was surprised to be accused by Godzilla of 'sticking my nose' in and causing the incident.
In my opinion it's 100% his fault. I knew he was there, and being T2 I was sticking to my side of the track. Godzilla also runs VR and has the ability to look around.
While I accept the decision I disagree with it; after a poor first race it was my chance to recover the round starting nearer the front, and that impact put me down in 17th which also had a known on affect for race 3. Causing that much of a disadvantage to somebody though carelessness as well as anyone else caught up in it should really be penalized.

Now someone gets barely a nose in a place there’s nowhere to go and on the first lap and smashed me off track, essentially the same as the incident with me and Grat but in reverse and MUCH less overlap and you also deem that as my fault?
Wow that's how you see it? I wasn't that bothered about it as it happens but rather Wally take another look now. We were side by side from the start and you cut across we with all the room in the world on the other side of the track costing me 10+ place. Race 3 you only hit me in the side twice as we were side by side in the twisties the second time pushing me off track and taking the place. Again didn't even mentioned this before as I don't really care, but seems you may need to work on knowing what cars are around you.

Not a great round for me. Qualified 12th and could have done better but didn't get a great lap in.
Race 1 the first 9 laps were great, then the last 3 were terrible. I got up to 5th through being in the right place at the right time and getting through accidents, but then got wobbly and went off through the opening twisties. I waited for the two cars that were right behind me to pass and saw a gap on the track map and re-entered but guess the cars were coming quicker than I realised causing Wally to hit me; my bad, sorry. Finished 14th I think.
Due to race 1 woes I stared quite far up the grid, but had an issue with Seanus ahead who disappeared and reappeared and then didn't move when the lights when out. I managed to just get around him with a little tap, but then got sideswiped into turn 2 and had to let the whole grid go by rejoining in 17th. Wasn't sure who it was at the time, but just checked the replay and was Godzilla. I was on his outside keeping to the far left and he came across me taking us both out. I think after that the race was pretty good and I managed to get back up to 9th or something.
Race 3 was pretty average starting in the middle and finishing somewhere in the middle. I think I caught JamieP off guard into T1 and he gave me a tap and I lost a few positions but he redressed which was appreciated. I was taking T1 with a short sharp spike on the brakes at the end of the straight and then coasting to the apex in 5th and back on the power which I don't think was expected

*but* try not to do it for accidents in the opening corners, unless you and the victim are already the last two of the pack as a result of the crash. Said otherwise: it is almost never safe to try to redress a lap 1 accident. Wally will take care of that by asking a few sumo wrestlers to ride as passengers with you in the next race.
Of course you can. Like wally just when it's safe to do so. Even if it happens to be a few laps later.
Here is my in game sceenshot:
I followed guideline here which Phil gave me about seating and wheel position:
My bezel corrected resolution created by the Nvida control panel is 5940x1080 and you need to make sure you choose that corrected one in AC with triple monitors selected.
My monitor height is so that my eyes are level with the centre of the screen and I sit 70cm from the screen. can't do anything about that due to the rig but the closer the better. There is a calculator for side monitor angle but the rule of thumb is that the should be angled so that the centre of each of the screen is exactly the same distance from your eyes.
In game just load the triple monitor app and punch in the numbers and it will set the correct FOV for your setup. Then for each new car I load the Onboard Settings app and move the drivers eye position so that the top of my steering wheel covers the onscreen wheel. My physical wheel comes about a third of the way up my center monitor.
Here a photo taken in panoramic mode on phone so not pefect but gives the idea:

Looked like the orange car had enough overlap that the white one should have left some room
Guess I'm just basing that on how i drive. If i see any overlap i give room as id rather loose a place than crash and ruin a race.

Looked like the orange car had enough overlap that the white one should have left some room, but was probably also looking at where the blue car was. Personally if I were the orange car in that situation I wouldn't have put it up the inside as I'd have deemed it too risky that many cars going through that fast turn.
