Looked like the orange car had enough overlap that the white one should have left some room
Guess I'm just basing that on how i drive. If i see any overlap i give room as id rather loose a place than crash and ruin a race.

Looked like the orange car had enough overlap that the white one should have left some room, but was probably also looking at where the blue car was. Personally if I were the orange car in that situation I wouldn't have put it up the inside as I'd have deemed it too risky that many cars going through that fast turn.

Pretty decent round for me. Qualified 6th and finished 4th in the first race. Managed to avoid the accident on lap 1 and had some place trading with Phil throughout.
Race 2 starting near the back again missed the accident and made a few passes to finish 8th.
Race 3 was going okay but got tapped in the rear going through the chicane and found myself facing oncoming traffic so coasted backwards off the track. Fortunately nobody else got caught up, but was no redress and I lost about 6 places. I made up some of those but was probably about 3 places down on where I could have finished.
I wasn't 100% sure at the time how I got hit, but looks like the car behind caught a bit of grass and couldn't slow up in time:

Someone around here can set up a booking website. All it needs is to have a way of looking at a calender of upcoming public sprint races and adding a booking of intent. Joe... me, maybe. Or maybe there's something already publicly available.
I could be added to that web based server manager I made a while back. I haven't really had the time to keep it up to date. Would be easy enough to take bookings and create an entry list, then have the server start up with a specific track and car combo at a certain time. Some guy started adding to it on github and he doesn't really know what he's doing and broke a load of shit, so I need to go in and sort it all out but just don't have the time.

Awesome fun. Love the sound of these things. I hadn't driven it since the last season in them so made sure I had a bit of practice before the race. Lucky on the win with Phil and Bacc no qualifying. Fortunately had enough of a gap that when I did spin all on my own Bacc didn't go by, though he did then put the pressure on for a few laps. Second race not so good, spun in a bad spot and had to let the field by.
I had a letter back in october to say nbn was ready to my address after having lots of letter prior to that saying it was coming soon. A couple of months later had another letter to say sorry and that it wasn't actually available yet

In qually I was around 7th with 7 mins to go and thought the time was okay so went for a drink and came back to 12th...
Race 1 I spun early touching the grass and coming across the track into someone. I think it was just one car but not sure who. Possibly Gratulin as he left the server right after. Sorry to whoever it was. Was in the last place and made up a few places.
Race 2 wasn't much better. I spun off all on my own one time and possibly rejoined right in Dave O's path. I was checking behind and it looked clear but not sure. Also had a few bumps with cars in front braking early or taking corners slower than I would catching me off guard.
Race 3 I had 34% restrictor but was actually my best race with lots of close racing and overtakes and finishing 8th. Highlight being the side-by-side action with Mael all the way through Hislop's and Druid's with me somehow coming out ahead then he and Grat coming together soon after taking the pressure off.
