yeh, and the Merc has power steering and brakes and electric windows, none of that on the LolaAre you guys having difficulty bending down to get into the Lola?Noooooooo I don't want to give up my Merc!I think if you are over 55 or should I say 60 you can keep your current car. Shameless excluded, if he prefers the Lotus.
Nope, don't have auto clutch enabled, and paddles work on Marty's other server which has autoclutch disabledWent to give this a try but found I couldn't select a gear with paddles, but worked fine off-line. Why is that?It might be an autoclutch setting on the server?

And the lesson from race 2 is, don't get stuck on the outside of a slow car (the Lola). Watch everyone else pass on the inside.That was the highlight of the race for me too, passing 2 cars on one corner. Unfortunately the lowlight was soon after, missed my braking point at the end of the straight and took out Bruce.
So sorry Bruce, felt so bad.

The session details shows several people did not pit?Yeh, once again it says I did not pit, but I did on lap 17 for tyres and the session laps times (2.01) show that.
Was originally going to try running the race on the 1 set of tyres and only pit for 1 litre of fuel, but with 5 laps to go the car was feeling a bit iffy. Pitted while I was in the lead and came out 3rd (I think) but narrowly ahead of about 5 cars, but the new tyres kept me ahead .
Good racing again.

Sorry guys (and gawaterman in particular), the powerboard where I have my wheel and a few other things plugged into seems to have just kicked the bucket.That was 50% my fault, saw you spinning and instead of backing off thought I would just dodge you. That didnt work!Horrible 1st race with lots of off's, and crashes.Think every time I had an incident I would lose concentration and have 2 more.
2nd race was much better, my 1st win for as long as I can remember (not that that's long) and a whole race without a crash or an off.
You really need to concentrate hard with these cars, and slowly learning that slower is quicker.
Just had a look at the results and 13 crashes in R1 then 0 crashes in R2

What greeted me coming around the banking....
Think I might have caused that.
On previous laps DanielG had passed me on the low line on the banking so I thought if he can do it, so can I.
WRONG. Tried passing Unbelievable on the low line, bounced up into him and he lost it in front of DanielG. Apologies to both.
Was a much better night for me than last week, did a bit of practice yesterday arvo and starting to get a handle on the F40
Had a great dice in the early laps with DanielG and Unbelievable, then late in the race had some great laps with Wally, passing and getting re-passed several times, till on the last lap Wally got it a little sideways, I thought this is my chance and put the right foot down hard. A little too hard it seems as I got even more sideways and dropped a couple of seconds back.
Its good racing between the F40 and the GT40 as the Ferrari has a grip advantage and the Ford has a power advantage. Makes for good racing.

Are those stracker stats right and some people didn't stop?
No definitely not right, I stopped on lap 7 and changed tyres and it shows a 3.05 lap time, but then says I had a pit lane time of only .048 secs.

Well that wasn't a good start to a new season. Think I had more off's and crashes in that 1st race than all of last season, including knocking off Mael and spinning in front of Grat and possibly others I have forgotten (apologies to all) Think it might have been a combination of not loading the setup Phil provided, plus very little running since the last season ended, plus running in another league in Rf2 with cars that are polar opposite to these cars.
Then in R2 another spin on the 1st lap putting me to back of field, then crashed over the fence to find myself on an access road outside the circuit. Followed that around hoping to get back on track, went under a bridge that the track went over, then fell into a never ending hole. I then found I couldn't escape back to the pits and restart from there, cos the game said I had to stop moving to escape.
Oh well, it can only get better from here (I hope). Will have to get a bit more practice in.
