My race 1 was good fun. I spent a lot of it on the tail of an ab156, Freezer, Bacchulum train. There were a few mistakes by all, a few passes, a bit of door banging, a bit of getting caught up in the aftermath of other peoples' mistakes - all good racing. I was quite hot by the end of that one.

Race 2 was short... I blew my engine trying to evade Kcender who darted across the track to enter the pits - I thought he was slowing and pulling over to the left of the track. That earned me about 11 mins in pits. I knew I wouldn't qualify as a finisher for points (you need to complete 75% race distance), so rather than get in the way, I didn't rejoin, but watched others. Disappointing, but after hundreds and hundreds of league races... that's racing.

Q. In the top 10. Set my best lap following Freezer and get a good run out of the last turn, slip streamed and tried two wide into turn one (hoping I might get let through) but of course didn't end well, sorry Freezer.
R1. Absolute shocker, jump start, missed pit box on drive through (you have to stop right?). Got back out on track and had a heap of mistakes pushing too hard. Ran out of fuel. Finished last.
R2. From last to fourth, although mostly from others mishaps I had a great race with everyone Able, Rob, Killa, to name a few, very good fun thanks guys

I'm pretty sure it's only a drive through penalty.

I think Wally's correct.
If you stop it's taking as a pit stop and not the penalty.

Good race for my return to the competitions lol   I was not very fast but i had fun!!  I like this format,not too short not too long races and my neck and arms are ok   :-*   In the second race maybe i could have done something better but unfortunately ableArcher locked the wheel pushing me off road in the first lap. Was fun fighting back though.

cheers guys!!    Joe won a race......hoooo  my my my.....good job mate!

Thanks Simone!

Good night for my first proper night back racing. We'd run this track a few times on Thursday nights so I'm sure that helped a bit.

Race one I had some early position swaps back and forth with Jeremy but then he disconnected. Then had some back and forth position swapping with Phil and stayed close behind him until the last few laps when things were getting pretty slippery so I backed off a little and watched the gap to Mael behind.

Race two started second and got a good start behind Mael with him going wide on turn two giving me the lead. Had Freezer close behind for a few laps until I was going to go wide onto the sand at the hairpin so came off the power completely and Freezer must have done something similar and went off. I was then on my own until the end.

I had a bizarre night.

First race I hit Simone after he'd disappeared on the main straight and reappeared in front of me.....apparently. I must have hit a ghost because after I rejoined the track I saw he was still in 14th so I must have smacked a phantom car after a connection glitch.
That screwed race one.

Race two I had a car perform the most magical stunt car trick I've seen in some time by hitting a little rise in the road and continuing on like the end of Grease. I was distracted and crashed. My windscreen was shattered but the car seemed okay so I kept going, spinning a few times and thoroughly hating this car. I didn't like the other one we were considering either so I think it might be a long season.
