I noticed a message pop up in one race to say doobs added fuel and he says he didn't so does sound like something funky is going on.
I definitely didn't add fuel knowingly. Like I said earlier, and same as Bafs, pit config set to 0 on fuel and I didn't see fuel indicated on the pit countdown on either stop in race two. I did make two stops. The first one I changed selection on the fly to fix body damage and suspension. I only saw the spanner countdown. Tyres were already set to 0 change..
And second stop I had tyres only (Medium) with 0 Fuel. I set that on the fly to change tyres (medium). 0 Fuel was already set.
I don't know if changing on the fly could cause false reporting of fuel. Shrug.

I didn't add fuel Wally, I started both races with 37 litres which was 3 or 4 more than I needed if I completed the races on the same lap as the leader.
Tyres only first race.
and in the second race I did a damage stop, and then tyres in the second stop. Pit config had no fuel and the pitstop countdown graphic only showed what I selected in pit config.

Race 1 started well, and I did okay. Avoided the carnage.
Race 2 started better and by lap 4 I was feeling great, hitting good lines with a decent enough pace.
By Lap 4.5 I touched a ripple strip and smacked a wall, lap 5.1 I screwed Eau Rouge and did it again.
Rest of it was Meh.

This was easily the best night I've had since coming back to race AC.
It makes a huge difference when you have a setup that's comfortable and only one corner that gives you grief.
After qualifying 13th, I got lucky after the start and made places through people driving off the track or having spins.
But I also had a decent pace to be midfield as long as I could keep it on the track and drive at a consistent pace.
About 12 laps in I pitted after chasing Rob for a while and after the pitstop managed to be in front of him. It was all going swimmingly until the last lap when I got too excited at the prospect of finishing in the top 10, and managed to get Rob into a position to pass me on the way the the finish line. Fortunately for me he ran out of straight (just) and I piped him for 7th by .061 of a second.
I think I started 12th in this one.
I got a reasonable start again but this time there were no gifts, so with the shuffling that goes on at the start I was 14th.
I got back to 12th and probably should have finished there-abouts (maybe 11th) but for a spin on my in lap that cost me 10-15 seconds.
Luckily I didn't hit anything but lost a heap of places. I thought it was going to be a boring disappointment after coming out of the pits in 18th. I managed to crawl up to 15th and was hoping to have a go at Shameless and Rob who I'd managed to catch on the last lap, but I ran out of time. It would have been a hard ask to pass either of them if they didn't make a mistake anyway.
Overall I was very happy.

Race one was good except for losing the rear a few times which cost me. Was having a great battle with Dave O, unable to get past him.
Race 2 was ordinary till I pulled my wheel off my table trying not to t-bone someone who'd spun.
I then cracked the shits and quit. Not shitty with anyone, just because the wheel came off, plus it's a real pain in the arse not being able to use a clutch to spin the car when you're facing the wrong way.

Lack of practice will be an issue, those cars changed quite a bit from qualy to race fuel. Then add lap 1 being the first lap many have even driven a lap close to anyone its never going to happen. For normal seasons its always good for people to try jump in the prac server not necessarily to just tune the car and find lines but to get some practice in traffic even racing others. Some seem to shy away from wanting to run close to others in practice but its one of the main benefits of the practice server if after all its easy to setup offline if thats what your trying.
agree 100% It certainly didn't help me doing practice by myself thinking I was on the server; I must have been concentrating hard on trying to learn the track. I still couldn't get some of it right and didn't have time to even attempt making the setup faster. I blame HTC Vive, Micrsoft Surface Pro and my phone....all of which I broke in a three day period. It seems that trying to organise repair is really difficult over New Year.
Anyway, I"m looking forward to driving the Prada next season and this in another later.

Must say I was dissapointed!
No it wasn't Marty, for me it was a lack practice and no idea where my front wing was. I wasn't trying a pass on Wally at all, just trying to stay close, and pass the guy outside me which I was in good position to do. The front end just pushed out a bit and I didn't back off enough not to spin Wally. Whoever was outside me didn't look like they were trying a pass either. Wally also had to slow mid corner for the dude in front of him which put him back into us. Racing incident, Funny Video.
This next bit isn't aimed at you Marty, it's a general comment.
Meh, it was a fun run, the first race in a car that wasn't some slow arse sedan or GT car (In comparison, hell even the pit crew were on speed). If you expected the racing to be of a normal Tuesday night standard you're dreaming. Considering it was the first time competitively in these cars I thought it was alright.
I didn't do much practice of the circuit because of the fact it was Christmas and I had better shit to do. Come the season proper I certainly would, because as slow as I am I don't like to make a dick of myself and spoil others races, when they're official.

Sorry, I lost track of days and only realised about 9:30 that this run was on.
