I'm on cable. I have no wish for NBN to come to me
At least the rollout of NBN on HFC has been put on hold

Race 1: Apologies to Freezer for punting him on lap 1.
After that I had some great racing with Shayne and Freezer. Don't know where all the cut tracks came from. I don't think I actually cut track once ....
Race 2: Qualified 2nd
Got away OK but Phil.8 got past, then Kcender & Phil.8 were just too fast. Was going nicely in 3rd until the rear stepped out coming onto the straight and I crashed. Apologies to ab156 who was behind me and couldn't avoid my carnage. I ended up facing the wrong way and had to do a 3 point turn in the middle of the straight
Pressed on but even though damage was off my times were about 1.5 secs down. Again, don't know where the cut tracks came from.
I like F1 cars.

Note: I can join the ROOZ server that has the same track/car combo without issue.
Edit: ROOZ has Barcelona - GP, XGN has Barcelona - Moto. What the hell is Moto?
Well at least the HR was much better than the HD.
My dad told me the HD stood for "Horrible Design" and HR was for "Hurriedly Righted" (he had a HR), but my first car was an EH and I still gotta love an EH when I see one

Here are the replays for anyone's viewing pleasure ...
Race 1: http://www.mediafire.com/file/x2xuzjuj6kb023s/AC_060218-202447_R_ks_bmw_m235i_racing_ks_laguna_seca_large_grid.zip

Race 3: http://www.mediafire.com/file/tgxo66245dpqjo6/AC_060218-213437_R_ks_bmw_m235i_racing_ks_laguna_seca_large_grid.zip
In qually I didn't get any decent laps in so was happy to qualify 7th.
Race 1: Missed the start and lost a couple of spots. The bloody sausauge kerbs kept getting me a little bit, then I hit one good which let Wally and Simone through and on the run to the left hander that leads up the hill I was protecting the inside line when JamieP swooped around the outside, made contact and I spun off. Clawed back a little to finish 11th.
Race2: Tagged by Simone twice in maybe T3 lap 1 and I spun off. He immediately apologised and redressed . I had recovered some places with others going off, then somehow grat wound up behind me. Coming down out of the corkscrew a bunch in front of me were squabbling over places and I was baulked slightly, grat swooped around the outside, made some side by side contact and I spun off. Somehow recovered somewhat, then outdragged ab156 out of the last turn to finish 10th by about 1 inch (25mm for the youngsters).
Race 3: Started OK, but grat was behind me. We had plenty of contacts, one side to side when Shayne warped badly coming down from the corkscrew and I baulked to see what would happen, then a number of hurry up taps heading up to the corkscrew I guess I wasn't fast enough .. hahah. Eventually grat got by when I hit a @#$%^ sausauge kerb, then had some fantastic racing defending from Mael but he finally got through. Finished 10th again.
Despite the offs, I had a great time in this round.
Congrats to the season winners.

Highlights of the reverse grid race 2. Watch this, and then tell me that the racing was bad!Thanks for the vid Wally. It was great to see a bit of the action that took place while I wasn't there

Really good qually. Pipped for pole on the final lap by Phil.8. I had been up on my last qually lap but got a fence ....
Race 1: Got away in front of Phil.8, but he was faster and made a pass. The pass slowed me down and Matthew got by as well. Then it was great pace at the front and i dropped back just a little. Then Matthew must have made a mistake somewhere because I was right back on him coming into the town on the second last lap. So I tried to press him hard and managed to just clip the inside of the last right before the finish line. It was a light clip, but it smashed the windscreen. I thought I would be OK to keep P3 with one lap to go, but obviously it was big damage because I was 2.5 seconds down by the time we were going up the first hill. killa breezed past, then Mael, then Bueller. Then at the last right before the town I brushed into the fence on the left and pinballed across the track and back ending up nose first into the fence. Couldn't see where any cars were so performed a VERY careful reverse 3 point turn before rejoining with smashed suspension and somehow managed to limp home 9th
Race 2: 35% restrictor. Started OK, but others blew past me, then got caught up in the carnage. Restrictor + damage, pressed on. Fastest lap was nearly 3 seconds down but had some good racing and finished 7th.
Race 3: 80% restrictor. Fastest lap 5 seconds down, but had some great racing with Wally and Bacchulum. Somehow finished 5th
Not as good a night as I was hoping for, but I kicked my own goals in race 1, so pretty happy with the outcome ....

Anyone got a replay of race two? Even the CR record file from Assetto Corsa will do, I can just load it up here on mine.
Sorry Phil, I zipped up Oulton Park instead I Road Atlanta. Should be right this time.
