I think you will find kcender ran into me race 1 wally lol
was happy with qual, got a decent launch was going to settle behind grat but then kcender had a moment into t4 and clipped my car, fell mid pack and had a great time fighting back to p2 with a awesome battle with phil and joe for the podium.
race2: messy start thought there was another crash going into t2 up my inside so i went straight across to dirt in fear lol came back on slow and got taken out car was heavily damaged was like driving a truck but found myself p5 but then trying to push a little to catch simone the thing just went straight at the last turn where kcender was waiting and that was it for me, went back to pit to fix car came 18th... no luck at all that one...

I shouldnt drive when i have been up since 5am on 5hrs sleep lol, surprised i got pole i wasnt happy with any of my laps.
Race 1: Got past grat after he got me lap 1, was looking good and i bumped the drs button... so i assumed i needed a 5 sec gap so i pushed pretty hard all race got it too 4.5 when i pitted. Came out the pits behind a lapped car went to overtake it at the hairpin but the gap disappeared and i clipped them trying to pull out and it put me into a spin. then i think chap found my stranded car and he watched me struggle to find reverse lol and that was the end of that race so came 4th or something.
Race 2: Got hit into t1 from behind got wing damage so the car was twitchy but i decided to still push for kcender and the thing just spun on entry at the right hander at the start of s3 and again someone found my stranded car and damaged my front wing and I limped home 11th... an awake me may have saved the car who knows an annoying error lol

What a difference it makes doing some prac before a race lol car was fantastic but then again I love Austria so we see how we go next round I must test again
Was super pumped over my qual lap that felt great haha not much more in it, race 1 was all about getting a clean get away on lap 1 which I managed and from there I managed the race to the fin for a nice win
Race 2: A bit tricky from 8th was behind the grat and kcender spin and just missed them, parting my way through the middle. Knowing Jeremy was out front it was difficult to keep momentum picking people off 1 by 1. I think lap 6 I got to p2 about 6 secs behind Jeremy and set hunting him down I got it down to the 2 sec mark by the end but got distracted going into the final turn and had a lame half spin lol so lost my time and had to settle for 2nd in front of kcender But 2 nd was all I would of got anyway Jeremy started to pick up his pace so it was a nice 1 2 either way

Surprised how fun these cars are to race very nice
Race 1 never raced this car so i bogged it instantly off the line and fell back to 6th lol, Had jeremy in front so I stayed behind him as he had pace and was able to claw the positions back but it turned out most of the people in front of us spun so jeremy ended up leading and i was p3 but got caught behind a spinning car he just passed I so lost time to jeremy. So from there I was doing qual laps trying to bring down the 4 sec gap to jeremy and phil, i realised i didnt set the tyre pressures for my incoming so i stayed out to lap 17 or so to reduce the hurt lol, i tried slowly driving in the pit lane to adjust the pressure but my box was to close to the pit entrance so it was in vein and it cost me coming out of the pits in front of jeremy and phil. Car handled crap with the over pressured tyres but i then saw jeremy got a time pen so now phil was leading in front of me so that built the motivation to pass and i got him in the drs zone and that was that
Race 2 got a nice clean start and picked people off 1 by 1 until i got to p2 and saw kcender to far out the front with good pace so i settled for p2 A far simpler race compared to race 1 but all good fun!
DRS app was a nice touch too
Figured this mod might be of interest to a few people here
and a update patch
Here is a link to the creators thread, you need to register but its worth it there a few mods and tracks on there worth getting.
Its a very well made mod the models are great and the physics seem pretty good with the car handling the way id expect, only issue for me is the soft tyre over heats a little to easy so just use the hards and the shift animation is off lol but apart from that a very solid mod im having a blast driving these things! Around eastern creek i was doing low 29's which is on par to the real life times.

Nice consistent race for me just ran my own race for most part until the end of my stints rolz would close up, Had a nice moment with rolz on the second last lap but the exit of aremburg its apparently called I somehow clipped his bumper trying to tuck back in behind which for all money looked like he was way past but it sent me sliding down a wall to disturb my race kinda annoying at the end but it didn't do anything anyway so all good tried hunting him down on the last lap, I started closing in but unfortunately his 911 snapped on him so that was a cheap inheritance of 3rd place

Yeah it does feel a bit much on the initial lap on cold tyres, in the porsche your easily a few seconds off the pace, seems a bit high i havent seen a driver come out of the pits in a race and look like he is in a different class car compared to everyone else on warm tyres lol. Hopefully they reduce it a bit in a update but overall its good.

Had a good pressure race with phil all race, figured track position was king so just held it on line and waited for him to pit so he would feel the cold tyres first, then resumed our positions lol, got a bit lucky with grat and marty coming together as passing them would of been super difficult here. 2 wins a row was kinda unexpected lol
