Now lets recap - your comment was that it is to discourage "you" from hitting another car ..I hope it works in future ...Awesome, I've only got $66 damage fee. I thought it'll be worse...so I guess wall hits don't really count?No, wall hits don't count. It's mainly to discourage you from hitting another car only.
I didn't say there wasn't contact ....
I said "I didn't hit anyone, they hit me" (this isn't a complaint either) ... This is why I say "I hope it works in the future" ... you know, so other people don't hit me ...
** sigh ** I hope I have explained it clearly enough now
You are correct in the damage bill - just my dyslexia kicking in there

I didn't hit anyone, they hit me and my bill is $324

Well I must say a very unexpected result for the Shorty here. I was happy with my pace but I expected the Long Tail guys to be faster with the long straights here.
I was very surprised to qualify 3rd.
At the start of the race Jeremy and Mael got past with the Long Tails extra power and I had some great racing to wrestle the positions back by which time Kcender and Matthew had pulled out a 10+ second gap.
After that I was (unbelievably) pulling in the leaders and making a gap behind, but pushing really hard all the time as I knew the Shorty was going to have a much longer pit stop than any of the other cars.
Coming up to my pit stop, I had the gap in front to Matthew down to 4 seconds and the gap behind to Phil at 25 seconds.
After the pit stops shook out, it was 30 seconds to Matthew in front and 6 seconds to Phil behind .... whew - glad to have made it out in front of Phil.
Then Matthew put the hammer down in the second stint and pulled away as I expected from the Long Tail at this track. I managed pulled away from Phil and finished in an unexpected 3rd place
Good thing the Shorty still had a 10kg ballast handicap or I'm sure it would have blown the field away

I think I'm too embarrassed to talk about my race .... my own worst enemy Blew the only chance the handicapped Shorty had of winning a race. Still struggling to see why the Shorty was handicapped at all, let alone still handicapped ...
But then I found the second half of the race to be fun trying to come back from a lap down So that's a positive

In Steam, look at your Profile and you will be able to see your GUID in the web address - see attachment ...dumb question....but what is a GUID and where would I find one?It's your Steam ID, a 17 digit number. It's also in AC's race.ini file.

Qual setup attached for Shorty drivers to try ...

I had a good night
Didn't get everything out of it in qually, but still a fairly good lap and good enough to qually 4th,
Before race start, I predicted it didn't much matter where I quallied as I'd be behind the Merc's and Longy's by the end of the straight.
As predicted this was the case, but the good qually meant I was first in line behind them in 9th. Picked up 2 spots with the Keith/Mael tangle.
I was much faster than Brad, but couldn't do anything until he made a mistake. Managed to get by ab, then Freezer went off as I was getting close to him.
Matthew must have had some issue and came back to me, then at the icy left turn he went wide and I stayed on the line. As we converged my front lightly tapped his rear (I wasn't even attempting an overtake) and turned Matthew sideways. Waited for him to get going and pressed on. About 8 seconds lost.
This incident turned out to be crucial as after the pit stops Brad (with much shorter stop) came out just in front of me, and although I was much faster I couldn't do anything as he just pulled away after the exit of every turn. I must say it was great fun trying to get Brad - I even managed to stick the nose up the inside a few times but was unable to complete a pass.
5th was the best possible, but 6th is still a great result for the might Shorty
