I was being a dick, and unfortunately that's how it works for me. I can't react without overreacting, I apologise when I can, albeit too late or passively and in anycase it never improves my reputation.
(insert some long rant on philosophy, social stigmatism, taboos etcetera....... .....pathetic attempts at humour....ad nauseum)

Also on another tack. Shorter seasons? Two or three weeks, or if more distribute the races between other seasons and fun races. And/or reflect real life races past or present and hold them on the closest Thursday to the real thing. Le Mans in June or CanAm in October to name a few.

Let's concentrate on the foul language instead of real issue as lord knows we shouldn't want some 5 year old to stumble across the word and have his whole life ruined.
FFS. Now I've seen the footage, my replay got overwritten, it's a lay down misere, bradc receives a penalty for that or my name isn't.
9/10 drivers agree bradc should cop first lap penalty for that. Tell me I'm not wrong.

I was on the outside line the whole time.
I braked at the right time to give me a little margin in case the other party decided to stick it out on the inside.
Again a 'shit sorry mate' followed by 'no worries' from me and we keep going with the night, but this was on the first lap and that shit is not meant to fly FFS.

.. if you cut in front of someone and start braking right away...
A few people with smelly fingers as you've all got the wrong end of the stick. I didn't cut in front of anyone. I was on the outside going in to the turn FFS. The other party chose to share that line despite the fact that braking was imminent.
Again on any other lap this falls under 'shit happens'. And the mistakes that caused the problem are promptly forgiven, but this was a first lap incident FFS. That's what I'm pissed about.

...Tricky one: Seanus just passed Brad, but then braked when very close to Brad who did move a little towards Seanus. Wheels touched and Seanus went off, but I’ll judge that to be a racing incident because Brad probably didn’t have time to react when Seanus braked so soon after passing....
I relied on you last night Wally to keep my cool, as that incident happened I was fit to burst, but told myself that someone was getting a penalty, and now I've been let down.
Came out of Spoon, Bradc was slowish and I gained fast, chose the right side which was almost a mistake as the gap closed, I think I may have taken some grass. Now I need to negotiate 130R possibly two abreast. Brake at some point only to see in 'car radar' that it seemed like Bradc was tucking in for the slipstream and that was never going to work.
The incident itself is trivial, similar stuff happens all the time, but I feel somewhat aggrieved by the following decision.
And it's all good bradc, We ended up in one or two battles through the rest of the night.
Wait, is GzeroD = Seanus?
