Sorry to Gratulin, I got by on the long straight and was ahead through the following right. I thought I had more of a gap than I did and came across the apex of the left, suddenly saw he was inside me, tried to correct but that correction plus the side by side contact spun me off.
Joe, you needed to look DOWN to see the Lola. Sorry also for the tap. I might have pushed my luck a bit.

I hope the wireless works, and the ice-maker works for the martinis!
Don't know what a wireless is!! But the Merc probably supports Apple Carplay

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.

thanks Roo, yep over 60, but I have taken the tea towel off my head and had a coffee and coming to grips with this extremely depressing situation :)   (I had thought of installing desktop publisher and skinning a Merc with transparent turret, but I won't :) )
I can take change, I will take the open top ones for some laps hahaha
Are you guys having difficulty bending down to get into the Lola?

Ok guys. Which open top is best? Lola or Lotus?

Sorry Wally for messing you up. Was still on qual setup so not enough gas. In hindsight I should have stayed on the racing line - you might have been able to avoid my rapidly slowing car that way. A pity since I was enjoying watching the tussle between Mark and Phil. With a bit of luck they were going to take each other out and let both of us through!

But I see Andrew has shown me there is a 1 sec faster path around the track!

I enjoyed last night's racing even though I am still only doing the one race on the night. Being at the back of the field I just tried to not get caught up in the chaos - just stuck my elbows out and held my lines through the first few corners. Couldn't avoid some bangs but at least stayed on track. Once the running order settled I did some consistent laps and only lost concentration for a couple of laps towards the end.
The Porsche+Silverstone combo is great and I am starting to know Silverstone well enough to be able to lap without spinning. I only sometimes got the lines through the corners correct but at least I am beginning to see where I am going wrong.

The new grip progression made the driving much more predictable at the start of the race ( thanks Wally!)

On another note - AC NetCode really shines these days. Last night I inadvertently was recording 2 concurrent streaming TV shows on our Fetch TV while racing. I saw my ping go up and turn RED for a while but AC seemed to handle everything perfectly. I do have a 100mb/s connection however.

I may buy myself a birthday present next month... learning curve aside, are you loving them Gratulin?
Definitely. Best value upgrade for a long time.

My learning curve is affected by the fact I have an injured foot and haven't raced for a while.

I am taking a while to adapt however. I didn't realise how much muscle memory I had invested in the G27 pedals. Braking is very inconsistent as I learn the new pedals. In the Porsche, especially, it kills your laptimes.

I'm getting "...available slots exceed the number of pitboxes..."

Odd as it's working for me. The track says 24 pit boxes, and I have max clients at 24 and 23 cars in the entry list.
Downloaded your version and it worked. My version was much older.

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 most enjoyable moment of the race for me ;) I think I might be the 2nd car through since I seem to remember a slight panel rub on the Lola.

Must be my version is wrong then. I'll check

Would be good to run it for a fun run after one of the current seasons.
