ahhhhh... crap, that many already  :o

I guess I will have to sheepishly accept my first win as you all pull out of the way on the last lap.

Thanks in advance!

I would let you, but it's too close in the standings. There's only 2 points between ab156, Freezer, Shane and myself, 5th to 8th.

Some really good racing tonight, unfortunatly it took 2 races for me to work out I had to turn down shadows to stop the slowdowns - sorry to those behind me at the starts and on the last lap in R2.

Best not comment on R3 - on to next week.

I've had some great close racing with lots of side by side action...enjoyed it.
ab156, I think you were running into me in r2 again, hmm.  If your comment reg r3 refers to our collision it might be worth watching the replay. I've done it.
However, all in all it was great racing...I think we were once going through 3 or 4 turns side by side.
Cheers

Had the flu for the last few days so not in the best condition for it...
R1, lost control a couple of times losing positions in the process, major side ways slide into turn 1 and I got in the way of Able, we kept on but he returned the favour later on the last banked turn and I was not sure which way to go, we both wrecked, escape to pits 300 sec wait race over lol
R2, made a few minor tweaks to the car and it settled a bit but lost it again at the bus stop this time and went down order.
R3, a few more tweaks, the car was much better, no big mistakes and came home in the top ten.
Good racing with you all, sorry for the wreck Able

My 1st two races were great - lots of close racing, made no mistakes and dodged other people's accidents. I couldn't quite get the draught enough to pull of a pass into the chicane, and turn 1 was often nice and hectic with people with the draught having all sorts of different entry speeds.
But race 3 was screwed. I was starting 5th courtesy of a good finish in race 2, and was hopeful for a good points haul. But I spun all by myself exiting the road section onto the oval on lap 1, and did a big, slow loop-the-loop out in the grass that left me last. The game also put me a lap down at that point (which I have adjusted in the points only for race 3). Then a few laps later while trying to make up some ground, I was draughting AbleArcher when I got too close to the wall on the banked section and hit it, which damaged my aero, broke my suspension and ruined my top speed. That was race over - I just circulated to the finish at that point.

Race 2
Russ had a moment on a ripple strip and oversteered into Jeremy – racing incident.

Hi Wally,
No mention that I was only on the ripple strip because Jeremy hit me up the arse in the middle of the previous turn which let Kcender breeze through into 2nd place???
Not placing blame here but people aren't hearing the full story. Replay shows that Jeremy released the brakes and hit me when he wasn't braking when he should have been, put me sideways and I ended up on the ripple strip. Then I was trying to accelerate not to lose another place ....

R1 was OK. Jeremy got past at T1 with the inside line. Then I was backed up into Matthew and was fighting Matthew with the slipstream for the whole race.
R2 After the incident with Jeremy, I ran into the wall at the entry to the back straight. Not sure why as I checked the replay to see if I braked too late and I don't think I did but still I hit the wall (my bad) ... After that the car had no straight line speed. Later I got part car beside Mael on the straight with part of my tyres inside the double yellow line. I held my line but Mael moved left and bumped me off track .... oh well ....
R3 Starting at the back. Was going good until Matthew and Kcender got together in the chicane. I ended up fighting with Matthew and made a pass.  I'm not sure about the next bit but came together with Matthew as he was making a pass on me out of T1. We bumped, I went into the wall and car was wrecked ....
Some days you're the pigeon,
Some days you're the statue ...

Sorry, you're right. I missed the earlier hit of Jeremy into your rear which let Kcender past. So that's a penalty to Jeremy for that impact.

"A Veiw from the back of the Grid"

Thanks Wally!
Another well executed race night.
And in honor of the Daytona...





Well my aim for this week was to not get another 25kg penalty, and keep it clean.
R1, major side ways slide into turn 1 and I got in the way of Able, we kept on but he returned the favour later on the last banked turn and I was not sure which way to go, we both wrecked, escape to pits 300 sec wait race over lol
R1 was ended in with a touch of the wall which spat me into the infield. Nice thing about racing in VR is to be able to spin your head around and watch that car thats is bee lineing straight at you. Remember you go where you look and @Bueller was looking straight at me. No problem Bueller.
Wally why the 300 sec delay, does it scale with the amount of damage?

Sorry cant help it....


R2 I started in stone motherly last! Then nice thing was that up front people were spearing off in all directions. The only thing I needed to do was too keep it smooth and clean. @Seanus was behind me giving me the hurry up (see gif #2), but was able to fend him off.

I was draughting AbleArcher when I got too close to the wall on the banked section and hit it, which damaged my aero, broke my suspension and ruined my top speed.
@Wally, I was watching you close in on me in my mirrors and was trying not to give any easy drafting pass! I had touched the wall in R1 so knew how cafeful you have to be. Sorry/Glad our little excurtion to the top of the track had the desired result. ::)

So on to the Queenland, let the sun shine.

I've watched the replay also. Agree we had some great side by side racing earlier. It's all good, different styles and approaches is what makes it fun.

Car is having it's instant cloaking device tested to ensure we don't have the same issue again  8)

I had lots of fun, except in the first race. The first lap was awesome until I got a whack in the arse which seemed to make the car even slower in straights, and I eventually lost it into turn one and totally furphed the car. I spent 4 minutes in the pits and that race was a dud.

In races 2 and 3 I had some really good racing with a couple of people who pulled some fantastic passing moves into turn one, and into the fast chicane. Plenty of room was given and there was some really good side by side racing. I can't remember who they were but it was gooooood.
Unfortunately for Matthew I lost the rear a little and turned into him when he pulled his. I'm glad you continued, and I hope the car was alright.
Apart from that little misadventure the rest of the racing was clean and lots of fun for me.
