Three into one don't go sent me to back of the field at the start, so after having to qualify three times I was pretty pissed right from the get go. I calmed down and found my self in a pack of Porsches and things were looking up, as the 908 was alot slower than the other two I thought a bunch of us circulating together would make for a fun race. Not to be though as three of said Porsches ended up in the sand! So now I'm fuming, so close to rage quitting but, carry on. Went on to battle Joe but couldn't fathom why he couldn't pass me as I really wanted a tow to see if I could set a record lap time. I was double pissed when he sent me off, one from disappointment and two as I saw him coming but couldn't react quick enough to get out of the way. Found reverse in the spin and flew backwards between the Lesmos into a J-turn, sweet! After three Qualys my pit box had moved and I overshot it backwards and had to drive the wrong way out of pitlane to spin around and come back in, which actually worked although at the time I thought I had been shafted as there seemed to be no indication that refueling is happening? To add insult to injury the Porsche's fuel use is bugged,(100 litres per 100km ffs) so the pit stop took forever. So race ruined I continued on, getting tired, made two mistakes at that damnable Lesmo 2, had a quick giggle when Joe binned it late in the race and came home god knows where.

Water bridge much, apologies have been given and taken, Most disappointing is that I felt a really top race was on the cards but,there's always next week.

Nothing to be proud off, if the creators do not get paid we soon run out of creators !!!!!!!!

Now let's not get into an argument over Imaginary property, I don't seem to be gaining traction with my one over 'Track Limits'. Suffice it to say 'If it's copyable it's copyable'

Granted chicanes are one of my many weak points but, my opinion of them predates my abilities to drive a car at all (29 years) let alone driving a Sim (16 years).

...have had some good racing at probably all the corners you hate....

Not quite, my under over defense with you at said chicane was one of the highlights of my race.

...Some chicanes are world famous corners think Eau Rogue, Corkscrew at Laguna ...

I consider those as more of an S bend.
Chicanes where you can't go side by side without slowing to near walking pace are the ones that need bulldozing, such as Monza.
When it boils down to it these nick nack chicanes are equivalent to having a three lane wide track coming upon a concrete gateway where only one car can pass through the gap. eg Those pathetic chicanes at the Gold Coast, ffs they have a giveway rule there, is this a bloody race track or a T-intersection.

Yeah, I've only ever paid for two pieces of software in 27 years. Grand Prix 3 (2000) and Assetto Corsa (2016)

As for F1 its only since they found tarmac runoff to be safer and more effective than gravel that we have had a track limit problem.
Most corners should have been reprofiled so they turn back on themselves ever so slightly, this eliminates any advantage in running wide and was easy to implement when laying down all that extra tarmac.
As for chicanes and cutting, easy, fuck that chicane right off. Anyone putting in or designing a track with a chicane has no business in track building.
Where there is a track limit that can't be handled by subtle means then use petrol station reversing spikes so once you go beyond track limits you simply cannot return to the track until passing a bollard at the end of the spikes.

Regarding Track Limits how about rather than 3+1 offs equals a penalty, make it three offs at the same section of the race track? Indicating that you are doing something consistently wrong rather than just a bunch of slight mistakes, half of which are often not your own fault!

Track limits has only ever been a later day problem. First in cheating in Sims and then in F1. Our league doesn't and I can't see it ever having a cheating problem and as for F1, seriously, has ANYTHING they have done ever made sense.

lol I'm working on the basis that ballast will help to settle the car on the banks ...!!

You're not wrong. The 908LH nearly has a competitive lap time but I just can't tune the suspension enough to maintain speed in the banking!!

Regarding PLP how about rather than 3+1 offs equals a penalty, make it three offs at the same section of the race track? Indicating that you are doing something consistently wrong rather than just a bunch of slight mistakes, half of which are often not your own fault!

[Or how about we just turn penalties off? If I want to stay between the lines I'd play Tennis]

race 2 it was hit the car or hit the wall
Sorry about being the protagonist here. I had already given you a shove in our side by side adventure (it looked to me and I hope to others to be a racing incident) so I can well imagine how pissed off you must have been when I propped in front of you.

It is almost certainly not this but once or twice I have had to set max CPU frequency in power options to 99%
Go figure but with out the change, CPU usage would stay at 100% with the fans blasting and yet the PC was idling.  Change the setting and in realtime you could see The CPU throttle down to sensible levels and hear the fans spin down.

So Dakar next year? ;D

Nope, almost three times the capacity limit for the DAKAR. I miss the big bangers but ASO had already put a bloody speed limiter on them.

Why would you pay for software?

http://alternativeto.net/software/adobe-premiere-pro/?license=opensource&platform=windows

Failing that I'm sure you could plunder some from the internet, argh!

..still new here so have not learnt everyone's names yet. I hope I am right that Shameless and Dez are the same person otherwise my post above would be quite confusing...

...
You and Seanus I think collided there?  it was Seanus I got the scare from...
