Interesting racing for me after being absent for the last 2 rounds.. very little practise.. fastest lap of the night for me was 1.33.2 or .4.. I didn't qualify well as expected in race 1, but made it from 17th to mid field, seanus was lagging which made it hard to get around him or plan any moves..
race 2 was an absolute disaster, stuck behind seanus again and he lagged off the start, tried to get around him but got shoved by the freight train of cars. ended up with damage and that just put my head out of the race really, disappointed in quite a few people in that race .. sheer desperation rather than decent racing..
race 3 I was middle field off the grid again, no seanus this time so i got a clean start got up as far as 10th but dropped back to 11th with kcender coming through then on the last lap went wide giving away another 2 positions..
was a fun night, but people need to be less aggressive off the start in reverse grid even in a sprint race. And lagging/warping cars need to be addressed because they are causing incidents which drivers can be penalised for.
I have a wireless version that has all that, but i couldn't get the sensitivity right even though the software and the game were set the same for the wheel.
Either way I don't have the disposable income to buy either the fanatec or this without testing it. If i can't use it, it's a massive expense to lose money on to resell.

I didn't expect to do well, had very little practice, managed only 1:43s and maybe a high 42 so didnt expect to do any better and be at least 4 seconds off pace. Did okay in the first race, saw a few offs and tried to stay out of it. On the first left hander I saw poor Joe get caught up in an accident that 2 other cars had which sent him from the right straight across to the left of the circuit, I had time to change down and break to avoid T-boning him, lost a spot or 2 and finished where I expected.
The 2nd race I was thrown up in the top 5 and tried to hold off people that were faster than me for as long as I could.. Watching good battles going on behind me as I turned to defensive racing. Finished around 10th or 11th I think or close to it..
The 3rd race I was tired and hot so I took it a little easier, some good racing by shayne and a good side by side battle with Wally. 4% restrictor didnt hold me up enough and had fun making my ass as fat as I could to make it hard without deliberately trying to block. I still suffer from understeer issues due to joystick, so i need to tweak the setup more.
Merry Christmas everyone and thanks for a good night.

any reason we can't use the lotus 3 eleven and match it with something? or is that going too fast? just trying to put in cars we haven't raced to my knowledge.Yes. Single make races are a whole lot easier
Even on its own I think it's a good car for a single make season.
Have yet to download and try this, but I was impressed with the vette in this that i watched in iracing. Hopefully it's done well.

Sorry Russ but I'm with Freezer on this, your car was not anywhere near far enough up the inside so he had the racing line and you should have given him the room. That's how I see it in motor racing too. Had you been further up his inside by the B pillar then the fault would have been Freezer's.

Bugga diehard, custom track issue by the sounds of it.
I hadn't prepared much for this race then saved my setup in another track folder by accident but didn't know which one DOH.. found something suitable and did some quick changes from memory, didn't expect to do much for the race.. qual 3rd last and just kept behind rexology, settled in and we gave each other pressure all race on and off.. I pitted a lap earlier than rexology and by the time I came around again he was just leaving the pits so i was pressuring him again, finally passed and put in place defensive driving in the corners so he had to go around the outside. LMPs made it hard at times to stay on track but in all a good race. Thanks rex, good close racing.
I still had 2nd gear maxed on the limit just to keep up, guessing my ratio was a little lower than the rest, by the time we got to the line there was a reasonable gap of about 4-5 car lengths.
