Except for Wednesdays, i.e. current LX events which doesn't run league combos yet, the server Volvolandia LX has LX4+LX6 and can select enabled, so feel free to use it for training.

I was going to, but I got wrapped in in hotlapping WE1R!!!, nice combo :).

What laptimes are we running people?, I am pulling 1:59's with race set and race fuel, I reckon 1:58's - 1:57's are very doable with some practice :nod:.

Must say I am looking forward to racing in a league where I don't have to admin and run it!!!! :D

Hmm, not as bad as I thought. After a couple of laps in a race setup I can get 57.23 so I'm guessing that I can still shave off a second before the race. So I should be able to keep up. :)

March Hare

I got disconnected, again.

Less than a lap of qualifying.
Less than a lap of race.

What a -ing great way to start a league.

What happened to you?

Eh sorry man it was lag :( I was on the outside really far I couldn't have left more space and I guess that even if you had bumped me it wouldn't have been that bad. The lag is killer :(

Had a good qualifying and took lucky second place behind Dave with exactly the same time as Mr. Makriyiannis (i had some trouble spelling that :razz:). In the race I couldn't go the quick pace of those two, towards the end the set developed nicely and I could beat my Quali time by 0.4 of a second. Overall a good race for me, I hope i can keep doing such nice results during the whole season. :)

Unlucky race for Dan, there was almost no contact and then hell breaks lose, i guess we have to blame lfs for that. However still 9 races left, nothing decided yet.

Provisional stats and the replay is online at the lxo website now. Points will follow after reviewing possible incidents.

I really don't know what happened

Yup, a complete waste of my time, one of the reasons why I withdrew from LFS for a while, bloody stupid collision detection

Looking at how the points are given it says that highest climber in the race gets two points and it is only applicable to the best final position. What does that mean, because it's not clear enough to me. Who got these points on this race? (this will give an example)

Aw, you were supposed to be at Westhill, not Zandvoort! You went to the wrong track!

Tell us more though! I see you went for your licence, planning for doing some westfield cup competition?

Edit: and who's this? (that's not you is it rudi? rrrrrrrrrr)

It means if two or more drivers climbed up the same amount of positions, only the racer with the best position after race finish will score bonus points, e.g. jwardy in this case (see stats (http://lxo.musicbit.ch/Ligadateien/Stats/race1/race1.html)). However, bonus points will always be mentioned in the LXO website news (which will be online for this race soon).

Ok, here are some thoughts of mine:

Beside some disappointment regarding drivers missing unexcused, I'm happy about the high driving style and flawless organization - but unfortunately we had several disconnects (March Hare, Itar (CZ)) and an annoying accident due to lag involving danowat, evilpimp and Toppahousu. Qualifying was literally a battle for the best lap time and nearly all drivers did a pit stop to get new tyres and fuel, only unlucky lococost received a DT penalty in the process. Right from the start resp. second lap DaveWS (who made little mistakes at all), [GR]Evolution and troy were able to extend their lead and showed very fast pace including lap times near or even better than the current WR without slipstreaming - excellent driving I've to say. Meanwhile evilpimp made good process to catch up after his accident, had a good fight with jwardy and RiceBurner and was able to pass after two laps; former overtook latter shortly after. Troy pushed very hard and may have been able to attack [GR]Evolution if there had been a 19th and 20th lap, same goes for Toppahousu and RiceBurner I think. I also feel a bit sorry for eimer_, whose spin on the 5th lap put him out of competition.

Just watched the replay, good stuff. Well, the league is in good hands. :)

I really want to join, but I don't like the idea of taking a slot from someone that would race the entire reason (I would miss half the races because of GFC). Unless there are free slots...? :scratchch

There are some slots I think on the grid and it would be really nice to race you here mate. You had some nice appearances in RSWC. Hope you repeat that here :thumb:.

Was fun tryin to catch up but it sucks about the incident really :( I had 4th best time during the race and my pace was pretty good. I think that if it wasnt for that crash I could have gotten a 5th or even 4th place.

Nice race report and pics :) Glad to see De Souza getting interusted :P. Hopefully will be able to stay close to you this time ;D

Ok, signed up.

[GR]Evolution: thanks for the kind words mate. :tilt: I'm glad to find some RSC regulars around here, that means good racing.

evilpimp: hehe good to see you here as well, but I don't think I can keep up with you on that pace you had in Westhill...

We'll see.

Heh I usually don't get that kinda pace :S It's just that I had goals and it was to catch up to the next person all the time and I was focused lap after lap. But I bet your faster when your not focusing and eatin ur chips and drinking a nice coke. :P Looking forward to racing you though :D

Very good job with the race report.

+1 from me on the whole grid using their real name.

Edit: one suggestion on the standings would be to display only LFSW username in order to make it look simpler and more organized.
