I've signed up via the website - I don't know if that is too late, but I will be doing practice for the event today.

damn, you can't believe how pissed off i am atm

:( Did u forget the earlier start time Lococost? And I bet MrT isn't overjoyed either with loosing connection on the race start!

Nice race though! 'Grats to the front runners :thumb:

I started 4th & went to last position due to early costly mistakes that were all my mistakes.
I missed the braking point twice on the final chicane when making passes, & on the second time it span around on the exit of the final corner because I had a massive FPS drop!
So that put me in last position but I managed to finish 6th in the end...I could've done better if it weren't for my mistakes, but I could've done worse too!

See you next time :)

Well atleast I didn't keep you behind me for a long time. Was on the throttle just a tad too early in the last turn and slipped the rear.

Lococost, are you as pissed as I was at the AS6 race? When I crashed at the last chicane and went to the pits and accidentally changed the "repair damage" to "yes" TWICE.

I made a really good race actually, not terribly fast but very consistent. The fact I was alone all race long did help on that matter, but it wasn't as fun as it could be.

The only concern was Taylor-Mania that was catching up at the end, a few more laps and I'd be in trouble. :schwitz:

edit @jwardy: that's too bad. We did wait for a few minutes, but...

ye, really unlucky for the late joiners and tea not noticing that we're still in the lag lap, although we where waiting for the late guys almost 20 minutes in total they just missed it. what happened there loco?

non the less, i had a great race against harry lots of overtaking and hard but fair driving, more of that!

6th July 2008, 21:05
Good race, i didn't expect to be so fast here. Quali 2nd, but i lost it quickly to Harry and then i got distracted by chat, did a mistake in last turn and let Polma through. Tried to catch him, but he was bit faster. 4th place is very good for me though. :)

:o crap its true it was lag lap!!! NOOOO.
I wen't back in, then tried to join and it said no mid-race joiners. So I left hoping that I don't make everyone else lag. :S damn

6th July 2008, 21:15
I totally got the time wrong... Normally i'm at home sundayevenings so I just join the server early and see when it starts, but I was away now and thought it started at 21h. (20h english time)... I would have had 3rd in the championship easely otherwise (still kicking myself).

Still, not as big a FAIL as Ferrari, Ross Brawn FTW!

Really sorry for my absence today guys :(, was really tired so had a long sleep in the evening.

That was an unfortunate situation: although midrace joins are always disabled, it seems I've been too focused on restart/racing incidents and thus simply forgot about this fact.

Hi guys, really sorry about missing the final two races. I've been backwards and forwards lately. Currently staying with my parents in a holiday home aka caravan, until a contract in a house begins in August. I've only just managed to get on the internet recently using a usb modem. Anyway, hope you guys have enjoyed and will enjoy the remainder of the season. :)
