That happens to me when pTracker/sTracker don't connect, generally when I first join a server.
If I leave and rejoin, they hook up and it reads whether the laps are valid or not (and the assists show up). ;)

NEVER TOO OLD TO RACE ... being competitive can be a PROBLEM though.

No worries,  hope your team goes well :)

Yeah, I blew it with a spin into the fence in race 2 after putting a wheel outside a kerb, which put me too far back to be any fun  :'(
But it was still fun then actually racing with people but a lap down.

Race 1, I just couldn't catch Mael, who CLEARLY needs more restrictor  8)

What? Seanus was the one just coasting away into the distance  ;D

Really enjoyed the car at Tor-poznani especially the first turn. Its so well balanced compared to most other cars which understeer into the grass. Apologies for leaving quickly after race 2, I've moved house and the new place is solar powered. The batteries was complaining a bit after the second race as we did not have a lot of sun during the day. (Generator saved the night a bit later)

What a blast this combo was, lots of very close racing. Congrats to Mael and Seanus. I cannot remember having such a close battle as I had with GW in the second race, and for me to finish just .04 of a second in front ;D ;D ;D 8) 8) thanks GW great side by side racing.. I turned my graphics settings down because I thought my GPU was playing up with cars flickering in some corners, thanks Wally for pointing out it is the track. This track is GPU intensive with my FPS in the high 50s and I am running GTX1080ti :o.

Agreed roo, probably the best online race I have ever had, there were parts you were faster and pass me, then bits where I was faster and get back infront,great fun.
Interesting about the fps, cos earlier in practice I got out and readjusted my ingame visual settings because the fps was a worry.

I didn't enjoy last night much. Not sure why. Maybe no practice, maybe too tired due to annoying kids. Car just didn't feel right to me on the track and half way through race 2 I was thinking to myself I'd rather be doing something else which has never happened when racing before. I spun on my own with a few laps to go, so I did just go and do something else :)

Struggled big time to drive the car last Thursday. Kept spinning and running wide during practice and took that into the race. Managed to mess up Seanus' race a bit with mistakes then, like Joe, started to spin all by myself. Gave up, thinking it was just me feeling crook on the night.

Turns out that another sim I was playing around with had set the wheel sensitivity to 540. Ruined that magic AC steering feel, especially with this Caterham. Reset to 1080 and all is back to normal. Phew!

Yeah, that does sound unusual (and for Joe too), as this Caterham is a joy to drive on any track. I think Joe just buckled under the pressure of knowing that I was chasing him  8)

See, I'm faithful to AC, I don't have "other sims" on the side. :-X :P
