I managed to orchestrate a accident in the only straight of the track. Not sure what happened Joe, I may have drifted over into you path without intent.
Hah yeah that's what it looked like to me but didn't expect that from a pro like yourself. Awesome intense racing with you on my tail though.
Had a feeling stats would show something like this:
Hunted: Jeremy [Struggle Street Racing Crew] (avg gap to car behind 0.54 secs)
Busiest: Joe [Krahl Racing] (avg total gap in front and behind 1.41 secs)

Started 4th and bogged down at the start losing some positions. On lap two was side by side with Freezer through Druids and we had a little impact on the next left where Freezer took the apex while I was expected room to be left as thought I was fairly overlapped. Hard to tell in the moment but we both drove out of it but lost of a few places so no big deal. I think I was in 11th then and had a clean race from then on making a few passes mostly as people made mistakes. Not sure where I finished so will wait for the results but I think around 7th.
Race 2 was the most intense and close race I've had I think. Diehard got past me off the start and after that I was behind him with Jeremy and Mael behind. We stayed like that for quite some time until at one point Diehard slowed when I didn't expect and I had to hit the brakes with gave Jeremy his chance to pass me. Then many many laps in a Diehard, Jeremy, myself and Mael train which was a lot of fun.
At one stage I missed my blip on the downshift at Graham Hill(??) and went wide allowing Mael to go along side me. From my view I was over to the right of the track going straight and Mael veered into me from the left and spun off. Would be keen to see what it looked like in a replay as it seemed a bit odd. After that I caught back up with Diehard and Jeremy and some lap in the early 30s Diehard went wide on the final turn allowing Jeremy and myself to squeeze through.
I seemed to have more pace but there was no getting by Jeremy; we were side by side a lot during the race but could never make the pass stick. With a couple of laps to go he went out wide though T1 and I got the pass at Druids. Think I finished 5th.
Great quality racing as always with XGN.

Sorry not to make it. Not been feeling too well today.

I love these cars. Nice to be using the H-shifter and clutch again on a Tuesday season. Sorry for the tap Wally, it's exactly what I did to Mael. I think I take a different line through T1 or something and it caught me out twice. The 90% restrictor made it quite different when I was back in the pack. There was no way I was getting past anyone so all I could do is defend which I did with AJ for quite a number of laps but eventually I stuffed up the final corner and he got me through T1.

General question...is it still fun racing with the restrictor ?
Yep always fun

Good fun. Sorry to Seanus for the second race. Poor line on the last turn around lap 3 and got a wheel on the curb and it spun me around into him. Some good racing with Bruce after that and I only got by once he made a mistake.
I found the restrictor interesting; I could still put in pretty good lap times if I had free track as I noticed I took most corners quicker than some people, but once I was in traffic I had no chance to pass unless somebody made a mistake. I'd get a good exit onto one of the straights and pull alongside someone only for them to pull away half way down the straight. I guess part of that is the track so will be interesting to see how it goes on other tracks.

as I caught him he overtook Joe (i think). Unfortunately Joe's car made a sharp jerking move as I was about to overtake him and in my shock I overreacted in avoiding him spinning miles off track.
Nope not me.
Qualified 4th then remembered on the line I suck at starting in these cars and lost 2 places right off the bat. I think I made one of them back before lap 3 where Phil and Kero had their incident on the last corner. I was sure I was going to make it through but clipped one of them and destroyed my front wing. I stayed out for a couple of laps but the car was really struggling. Bacculum got past me, and then Simone got on my tail which was a clear indication something was very wrong I pitted after lap 5 and fixed the wing plus tyres. After the stop I came out around 6th with a lot of clear track so was able to put in good laps. Phil came out of the pits behind me just before I caught up and passed Russ but Phil got through too had a few laps with Phil on my tail. The tyres eventually started to go off after such a long stint and I made a mistake and Phil made his move. After that I couldn't keep up due to the tyres so I just kept on eye on the gap to Kero behind me. He got close by the end but managed to take 4th.
Race 2 I got a better start and was fortunate to miss a couple of offs in front of me. I was quickly in 2nd behind Bacculum and got by him on at the end of lap 3 once the DRS kicked in. Matthew was soon behind me and I thought it was only a matter of time before he went by but I started to slowly increase the gap and keep in clean. Assuming Matthew wasn't pushing 100% as he already had the championship in the bag as usually he's a lot quicker than me but I'll take my first Tuesday night win

I didn't think he braked, he just didn't accelerate and Vettel was probably focused more on Perez. Apparently nothing int he telemetry showed he braked.
I don't think Vettel meant to drive into him though, but he did loose his cool and should he not have driven up beside him to wave his fist none of it would have happened.
Also they're all cocky assholes; that's what makes them so good at what they do

many mistakes from there on culminating with a destroyed front wing lap 3(ish).
No spin. I took you down the straight on about lap 3 and you tapped me from behind going into T1
