- Biggest rule: Respect other Drivers, race clean, leave room, be patient and keep in mind that you dont win a race in the first corner.

- Deliberate ramming will be punished, also if you keep using your opponents as brakes to overtake them.

- If you got rammed off or similar, save the replay and put it in here as evidence.

- We all know there are many corners and especially chicanes that can be cut, but please keep the corner cutting to a minimum.

- If you cant make it to an event, please let the Host know in time, so you can be marked (:no:) as missing excused. Until then everyone will stay signed up (:yes:) for all events.

- Fairness comes before victory.

- Please take a photo of the race results, so we can double check everyone's position, in case the game decides to screw us over. Saving your Replay might help as well!


















Day of the Event




- There will be a long practice session on the Sunday before the race if DLC content is being used. NEW!

- l will create a lobby 10 minutes before the actual start (i.e. 7.50pm CEST)

- A break of 5 minutes between the races. NEW!

- Invitations will still go out from me,please accept them as soon as possible.

Good selection of races by everyone who voted, really looking foward to this month's championship :)
I won't be able to do August 24th round Pink as I'm off to Portugal for 10 days :cool:

Very excited to start this new championship. I like the idea for a team to pick up the same livery. Why not also impose the same car (with the same livery) for a team in races with many classes ? In my opinion, it will make the team play more interesting and more decisive. :)

I'm very excited as well, especially how the team thing will work out :)
That was one of my thoughts too, but then we might run into taste or other problems.
Maybe you really like the RUF, but your teammate hates it, or you want to use a DLC car, but your teammate doesnt have it...
Its a good idea, but could possibly lead to disagreements :) :(

Sproket
26-07-2015, 01:22
Do you think it might be better to run team races in a maximum of 8. Weather 1 of each team or 4 teams of 2 that way you could eliminate any chance of question.
Chigg could share the burden. If that's ok?
It would eliminate the possibility of team orders and the possibility of the fallout from that. Not that I'm aware of these things? :D

Got a got Audi LMP 900 if anybody wants. Oh yeah and the etron!!

Love the idea of choosing the same livery as your teammate, but how do we choose which livery we want? I know you can choose a livery in the garage & save the setup but mine don't always stick when I enter a race :(.

Also, can I make a special request for everyone to read the extended rules sheet linked in the 'Rules' section of Pink's post. I know it's a bit long but we really want everyone to know the rules fully. Everyone is pretty much following the rules already anyway, but just have a read in case there's something you weren't aware of :).

Thanks.

26-07-2015, 14:49
I always choose a livery, press X and then Circle to exit the livery menu and it always works, hmm... :/

I was hoping to have made it clear enough that the new rule sheet is important :p

PS: Great F1 race today :D

Yeah it works sometimes but not always for me.

Just wanted to make sure! :p

It was a pretty good race yeah. Shame about Rosberg not managing to keep 2nd - it would have meant it was only 1 point between him & Hamilton going into Spa. His crash has let Hamilton off the hook a bit after a bad day!

Wow, great writeup teammate, and exciting selection of cars and tracks for each event! :) Ooh, I'm really looking forward to Monaco especially. :)

It's really nice to have such a detailed set of rules and regulations for this championship, by having those guidlines and following them the event has an order more importance and prestige. The team liveries will also give it that extra touch of authenticity, great idea. :)

I must say thank you to both Pink our hostess and Chig our co-host for setting up and managing these championships, your extra effort and touch really pays off and it is not unnoticed. Thanks a lot!

I was able to see the F1 race today also, really exciting stuff the whole way through. I haven't see many F1 races yet but this one was my favorite. :)

Hey guys!

Please visit this website (http://onlinegamingleague.org)and give some feedback here.
Tell us what you like / what you dont like, what you would like to see etc.
Any ideas will be considered and discussed.

Just had a chat with the site admin and he is very interested in your opinions. :)

Diesel98
29-07-2015, 21:41
So here's my feedback on the website:

Results/Standings: IMO, more detail needs to be added to both. For results, I'd like to see qualifying times, finishing gap to winner, everyone's fastest lap.
For the standings, I'd like to see how many points each competitor has earned in each round.

Live Stream/Video Wall: Good Idea, I'd like to see other people's perspective from a race to see how they got on and also follow other championships as well.

Teams: Again, neat idea, maybe we could have separate pages for each Championship that has team based racing like ours, as well as the general community teams.

Licences/Shop: I'm intrigued about this, will this work as a licence to enter certain events of your skill level so you can compete against similar opponents?
I feel the virtual money system could work along with this well as it would encourage people to improve their skills/ability to upgrade licences.

Leaderboard: Good to see how I'm doing against everyone in the community and gaining entry into a 'best of the best' Championship adds extra encouragement to do well.

Overall, a good solid base for the website, I'm sure it will continue to improve in the future, keep it up :).

Thanks for looking Diesel and taking to time to evaluate.
All points have been noted and appreciated. How would you feel about taking on some hosting duties.
Screen shots, 5 min replay and a short synopsis from your perspective. Uploaded to Skilltacular1988 and he will do the rest. If other racers want to upload their PoV. That also would be helpful.
I would also like to assign each host according to their strengths. This would be so helping others to improve their lap times with setups and lines etc
For example some people have the Gulf nailed or the group 5 cars or even Karts. Obviously everyone like the GT3's.
But above all this will not be a place dominate and belittle other drivers irrespective of ability.
If your fair your welcome :) It's the foundation of what a small group of like minded people started and are passionately connected too.
Pink and recently chigg has got an amazing group of gentlemanly drivers together and I see no reason why together we can't make this a force to be reckoned with(When SMS sort out bugs) the PS4 multiplayer community.
I would like to offer a very warm welcome to our slightly bigger bubble now :cool:

The race results/standings charts posted by Chig looked good to me, and the website looks promising. :) I'm gonna give both a more thorough look and post my own feedback later, but I really like where things are going Pink and Chig, great work. :) It's also really great to see the whole community working together I think. :)

Standards will be maintained and superseded when the collective working together towards the same vision. Having influence throughout the working progress enables positivity and diminishes negativity. You only have to look at the frustration within some of these threads to realise. Belonging breeds contentment. When your not being listened to nor cared about, breeds alienation. Just my humble interpretation of how this forum is heading?
They started out with the best of intentions but unfortunately, judging by the ever increasing dissatisfaction. Can only make me draw the assumption. THEY !! Have lost their way.

The website is promising but does need some work, of course. First thing I notice is a lot of the tabs on the top of the page don't show anything at all when clicked on. That should obviously be cleaned up, and I'm sure it will be. :)

Another thing that stands out to be improved is the race results, of course. It's very basic. The charts Chig posted were much better, with best laps times, championship points, and even room for qualifying finishes. :) If we were to integrate to onlinegamingleague.org it'd be really nice for those same or similar charts to be accessible on the website, if possible.

The video wall is a great idea, but I'd like it to be organized in such a way that there would be a video section for each league. So if I wanted to just watch highlights from last weeks race in a certain league I could do that right away. :) And it should be evident from which player and what race the video was recorded on the video title.

One thing that's also nice and an important aspect to our league and any league is the rules. It'd be nice if that was integrated to the website also, under our league tab.

When it comes to the Shop and Licensing, I'm not even sure what it is to be honest. :( What does each license do exactly? And where do you keep track of money earned for everyone, would that be on your profile? That needs to be more clear.

The Livestream idea has potential. It'd be really neat if each league had one player livestream their race, and that link to the channel would be posted on the website, with the stream schedule. Which is another thing that seems to be missing from the site, the racing schedule of each league.

Lastly, I tried to register, but I never got an email confirmation so I couldn't complete my registration. :( And I'm sure I put in the right email address.

So all in all it's a site with good potential I think, just needs some more work is all. :) It could be a good site for us to integrate into, but I'd like some improvements first, we're an outstanding league right now, we deserve a top quality website to go with it. :) This could be it with some more work, in my opinion anyway. :)

PS: Those were really good charts Chig, great work. :) The only thing that I think could make it better is if they had best lap times for everyone not just top three, and the qualifying finishes for each driver were filled out. But that would be more work of course, and isn't really necessary as it is great already. :)

It is realy good to hear some feedback, gives me something to work with.
The website is coming together slowly, still needs a lot of work but bit by bit im getting there. Then again it takes a lot of time.
But i realy read some great feedback already and im thinking with all you're help and ideas already this can get something great. I'm no expert in coding etc.. So therefor im still learning a lot, also bit by bit. The feedback i already read are all good solid points and am gonna try to fit this in the website. I will get back to you guys later on tonight. If there someone who maybe can help on the website, with coding html or anything i could realy use the help, if only for some questions.

Thanks delta :). These charts were just an example I worked on of what I would like to see. The times/qualifying results etc would be filled in if the charts were actually used, I just couldn't put that info into the example as I hadn't taken a screenshot of the results so I didn't have that info.

I was actually working on a test website for our league yesterday & it looked very similar to the onlinegamingleague one. I had integrated the stats chart & rules sheet etc, but if we've decided to go with onlinegamingleague I'll stop work on the site I was designing because it's pointless to have two sites on the go.

Is it absolutely necessary to move the forum discussion to another website? I don't know about anyone else but I find this forum very easy to use, and given that I'm on here discussing the game anyway I like having the Championship discussion in the same place. Having to log in to another forum would probably cut down the amount I would contribute to the discussion TBH. Could the website not just be used as a place to host our standings, rules, event details, driver/team bios etc? Just my opinion but I'm happy to go with whatever the majority wants.

RE: this not turning into a recruitment thread - I agree, perhaps someone should create another thread to discuss the switch to onlinegamingleague so that our August Championship thread doesn't get too cluttered? :)

Yes I agree regarding GT7 / AC etc. It would make sense to have everything in the same place if leagues are planned for those games as well.

We've had no problems whatsoever with people driving like 'retards' (classy) thus far and we're happy to leave assist usage up to the individual as we cater for all skill levels.

chig88
30-07-2015, 20:46
Did a few quick test laps but only using default setups, so hopefully will improve a fair bit when I sort my own setup (especially in LMP1).

LMP 2
RWD - 1:34.7
Marek - 1:34.9

LMP 1
RWD - 1:43.9

Tried both the Alpine LMP 2 & Oreca Nissan LMP 2 but both were so much slower I don't think I'd even consider using them. I also doubt the Marek or either of the Audi LMP 1's will be quite as quick as the RWD, so I think I'll be going with the RWDs in both races :)

Both of this week's car/track combinations are great fun IMO. Brno is fast becoming one of my all time favourite racetracks :D

P.S. Pink - I forgot to mention last week that I tried to select my livery before Monday's races, but I didn't get the livery I asked for in either race :(. So the team livery thing is probably going to be a bit hit & miss, at least in my case :(

Brno is a great track once you've done about 50 laps round it.
That T1 can gain you 3 tenths with the right line and that medium left right after the dog leg always makes you think you can carry more speed. I love to hate it.
However I love Watkins GP apart from that left after track splits from short config.

Pink there is a mistake in the final standings for Watkins Glen. The game has me in 3rd & Diesel in 4th but it was the other way around.

We were bumper to bumper across the line!

To be honest if this keeps happening I might have to back out of the league. It pisses me off massively to practice all week just to have this keep happening :(. I'll see how it goes for the rest of this month & then make a decision I suppose :/

So that's what happened. :( I thought you must have gone off track or something to be going that speed, but it was that glitch again. :/ So sorry though Chig. :( Another car was obstructing my view from you and turned out of the way just in time to miss you, but then there you were right in front of me and I didn't brake fast enough. I'm sorry. And yeah, that sucks that happened. :/

Good racing everyone, and congratulations to my teammate Pink and to Sprocket! :) Awesome job. :)

Didn't really have a good day today unfortunately, my pace wasn't good and was too inconsistent on Watkins Glen especially. In the first lap of Brno I wanted to wait for Chig to pass me after we made contact but he wasn't interested, which is when I knew something was wrong. That took a lot of time though so I was 14-15 seconds behind 3rd to last place at that point and was only able to get it down to 4 seconds by the end of the race. I still had fun though and it was a good learning experience for me I think. I'll practice hard and I hope next week I'll do better. :)

Evening Guys/Girl, time for my race review. So first race qualified 2nd after a tight session, with just 0.1sec covering
Pink, Me and Leipzig. Me and Pink seemed to get lightning starts and pulled out quite a gap by first corner. Going into the
chicane, she made a slight mistake and drifted wide, allowing me to slip through. Around Lap 7, with Leipzig/Pink closing in
and me pushing hard to maintain the gap, I made a similar mistake to Pink, but I slid across the Grass and got a penalty
dropping the gap from 2.5 to 0.5sec. Then on the next lap at Turn 1, I got on the power slightly too early and spun out,
dropping me to 3rd. I'd decided to steady my pace as Pink/Leipzig were too good and keep 3rd, however on Lap 16, I spun
again at Turn 1, meaning Chig was now right behind me. For the last 5 laps, we were never more than 0.5sec apart and he
really put me under pressure as my tyres were starting to go off, but I just managed to hold on for 3rd by 0.1secs! :eek:

Race 2, I drove probably the best single lap I've ever done to put it on pole, narrowly beating Chig/Pidgey/Sproket.
A perfect start saw me open up a 1sec lead at the end of the first lap, with Sproket behind me. For 16 laps, we lapped at
a almost identical pace, with him never more than 1sec behind me. Towards the end, he started to reel me in and was 0.5sec
behind with 5 laps to go. Then, in the pitch black with 3 laps to go, I missed my braking point for the double left-hander,
ran slightly wide and Sproket got through. I was still close though and looked to close the gap and try and get by. On the next
lap, at the same corner Sproket appeared to also run wide and slightly onto the gravel, but at this precise moment, my game
encountered horrific lag, so Sproket's car went into the barrier on the second part of the corner and then teleported right
into the exact spot I occupied on the track, throwing my car up into the air and ripping all the bodywork off the car :mad:,
allowing Pidgey to take second. This meant the last 2 laps, I had to drive completely blind (see photo below) and really
slow down, and luckily for me the gap to Pink was just large enough for me to cross the line for another 3rd.

Congratulations to Pink/Sproket on the race wins, and everyone else as always for the good, clean racing, see you on track next week :D

Then on the next lap at Turn 1, I got on the power slightly too early and spun out,

That corner was the nemesis of a lot of people it seems ;)
Mine was in the back of the track, the slow right-hander before the uphill left. l spun and hit the wall there.
It was one of the most exhausting races l've ever done. Very difficult to be fast and keep the car on the track at the same time.



but at this precise moment, my game encountered horrific lag, so Sproket's car went into the barrier on the second part of the corner and then teleported right into the exact spot I occupied on the track, throwing my car up into the air and ripping all the bodywork off the car :mad:

As l drove by that place l thought "What the hell happened here?! :eek:"
Because its not a famous spot to lose all your bodywork :D
Sorry to hear about the lag, though :(



Good racing everyone, and congratulations to my teammate Pink and to Sprocket! :) Awesome job. :)

What happened tonight, teammate? No luck? :(

Well, see my other post. :p On Watkins Glen the corners were tricky for me, I probably needed a better setup. Plus during qualifying in Brno the wrong tires were selected for some reason, which I didn't catch in time for a lap. But ultimately those are just excuses. Next time I'll be more prepared. :)

Great job again in winning the first race. :D

Race review. Race 1. Well after my posted lap times I couldn't get in the 33's. I don't know if different time of day or the car being lighter than I was training with. Anyway poor excuse and perhaps the pressure got to me. Great start and spun it at good 'ol T1. So dropped a few spots down to 7th or 8th. The only place I really caught people up an pressurised them into a mistake gifting me position was the fast chicane. But in the slower corners would lose the time gained. Had a great tussle with Drishan which I eventually made it passed. 5th was as good as it gets but I'm so annoyed with myself for not doing better.
Race 2 Brno is not a strong track for me and I know how you guys love a smooth surface. Couldn't believe how close 2nd 3rd and 4th were covered by half a hundredth. Got a great start and settled in behind Diesel. I think I had a bit more wing as I would catch in the fast sweepers and he would pull away out of the corners. I had to start putting pressure on as Pidgey reduced the 7sec gap to under 5 and noticed Diesel seemed to start struggling on his tyres. A rare mistake right toward the end gifted me 1st but then realised how spoilt I had been following him for so long showing me the way so lit.
I'm so sorry for the lag that ruined your race mate. I did go little wide in the T5 and wondered who's bodywork I drove around next lap. But was completely unaware of my jumping car!!
I really feel for chig as well because the land mine bug seems to affect some more than others. I have never encountered it but I think it's just affecting T300 users.
All things considered. This is a brilliant group of racers with awareness and fairness in buckets. Thanks guys. I look forward to Mondays coz of you ;)

Hi! I'm just putting my name down for this!

I just sent Pink a message saying that I'm just going to be a reserve driver due to the fact these races run while I'm at work but if I happen to be off on the day (like I will be on September 7th cuz it's Labor Day) I will let Y'all know and maybe I can join in with a race or something!

I work Monday through Thursday so if you ever start another championship that runs races on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday I'll be there!

Look forward to seeing you on the track (hopefully)

Pink_650S
04-08-2015, 18:28
Late to the party again, but l'll review my evening anyway :p

Whats to say overall?
2 really nice races, l thought the LMP cars were a blast to drive, especially on Brno, which can be a dull track when raced with the wrong cars, but it was hella fun with so much downforce :)
l hope you liked the conditions of both races, sorry Diesel, that you had to do 2 laps in absolute darkness :/ l should've turned off damage alltogether for that race.

Uhm, Race 1:
Had a good start and first corner, but in T3 l hit the curb inside and had to lift the throttle, which allowed Diesel to try and make a move on me, l kind of panicked and went into the chicane too fast and almost spun (see video ;))
After that Leipzig and l tried to catch Diesel in front (a crash of me inbetween) and eventually we got him. But then HE crashed in T1, allowing us to pass him. Had a great and fair battle with Leipzig until HE crashed in T1 - That Turn 1 though :rolleyes:.
From then on it was managing the pace and trying to keep the car on track, which was very difficult. Such an exhausting race, jeez :eek:

Race 2:
Very very exciting for me. (Video shows all of it)
l'm sorry to what happened to Chig, its so frustrating when the game ruins your Monday, l can feel your pain :(
All of us put so much into this championship and then on raceday an uncontrolable force screws us over. Thats not what we deserve at all.
(For more info on Chig's incident also see the video.)
Had some great battles with many of you guys! Thanks for being racey and fair. It was incredible :)
Also sorry to Gusen, dont really know what happened, but l guess you got disconnected? Hmm... Thats not good!

Overall l'm really happy with P1 and P4 in Race 2, after being second to last in Lap 1.
Thank you all for a great event! :)

Interesting!!! I'm the yellow car in front if Pink at 2:33 in the video and that is the exact point that I lost all FFB!

Given that there is a puff of tyre smoke even though I wasn't braking I wonder if it is something to do with the tyre model?

You noticed it yourself, you hit something invisible, kind of dug into the tarmac a bit and thats what created the smoke, l think.
Then where you, Delta and me crashed, what happened there? Couldnt tell from my replay. It looked like you broke very early, were you testing the FFB?

You'll have to record it from the replays in the game unfortunately :(
You can either save the replays after a race, then watch them + record them in the highlights section of the game, or what l have been doing recently also, you double tap the share button at the start of the race and it'll record the following 15 minutes live and will automatically save it onto your HDD. From there you can then instantly edit the footage in ShareFactory, but you will only have that one view, of course.

No I wasn't testing it - just that I'd lost all braking feeling as well so I was having to brake by memory. Also couldn't tell how hard I was braking due to the lack of FFB so I may have braked a bit too hard. Sorry to you guys if I got in the way :(

I remember reading after I had the bug at Sonoma that the FFB sometimes comes back if you go into the pits, so I was trying to get back to do a stop & see if that fixed it. No such luck though :(.

Okso I changed to the RWD P20 and was lapping in the 1.40.xxx with the default setup.

That was also with a fair few mistakes. It handles a bit [lot] different than a NASCAR does especially around the Glen. Still, I reckon I can find 4 seconds with a good setup and a mistake free lap.

Never setup an lmp2 car though do this is going to be fun! :D

Anyway, I'm off to bed now cuz its late and I'm tired. Will start on the setup Saturday when I get back from San Antonio. G'night!

Hi everyone,

Please could you all reply to this thread and let me know your nationality? We need it for something we're working on for the site.

We also need a logo for each team. I know Sector One Racing and Double E Racing already have logos, but we need to make sure we have one for every team. If you don't want to design your own logo, or you haven't got any way to do it, just let me know and I can design one for you.

Thanks! :)

P.S. It would also be appreciated if you could all sign up for the onlinegamingleague website here: http://onlinegamingleague.org

The driver profile section on the site has been updated with additional questions, so anyone who has already registered may need to log in and update your details in your individual profile.

Cool! Seeing as I don't get much time to practice and perfect setups etc, my performance will likely be somewhere near the back.

I still can't get close to Watkins Glentimess. So I think my only hope is to get in front and make it difficult to overtake. That's something I seem to be pretty good at.

Worst week by a mile for me.

I really paid the price for a lack of practice in the Formula Gulf - I had an awful setup, just understeer-city & super slow down the straights. Ended up at the back & those new guys were absolute cowboys - completely not what our league is about. Lost count of the amount of times I was punted off needlessly & by the time I managed to get past them cleanly I had no front wing & was 20 seconds behind everyone else :(. Pretty much just cruised around after that because I had no one to race.

P.S. delta - sorry for bumping you on the 1st lap, I fucked up under braking & I had nowhere to go :(.

Managed to get pole at Imola & definitely had the pace to win, but got two very harsh time penalties going over the kerbs at the chicane - had two wheels on the track both times so not sure why!! Was pretty much game-over after that - Leipzig was too consistent for me to catch so I just made sure I got 2nd. My winless streak continues!! This is becoming Jenson Button-like in the early 2000s - plenty of podiums but just can't win!!

Good racing (to the regulars anyway), congrats to the winners & hopefully we get most of the others back for next week. Gusenberg - you're leaving me hanging here bro!

P.S. - has anyone got any tips for starting? I'm losing a load of places at every start. Doesn't feel like I'm having bad starts but everyone else seems to be so much quicker?

Good races, even though I lack practice. 1st time racing in over 6 weeks. Thanks for the invite Pink :)

1st race was a bit of a disaster for the people in 7th and lower. I got punted off twice then Linnux? Got hit by a backmarker on the last lap who had parked on the track. 2nd race, I just couldn't get the tyres warmed up at all.

As for starts, if you use Manual, put it in to 1st gear and hold the brake. When the last red light comes on, go full throttle then release the brake at the green light

I tried. I was just taking it easy for the 1st 7 laps or so, giving plenty of room, then the rest of the race I was just time trialing trying to catch Linnuke. Caught him to start the last lap but that was ruined by the parked backmarker in the middle of turn 3/4

For my race synopsis: First race I got off to an okay start but as already mentioned it was pretty crazy for the first few laps for those around 7th and below. Very sorry to whoever I made contact with on the second lap I think it was, after contact I let him through. My fault. By the third lap or so I was able to create separation from the racers behind and was in 8th position, which I held for most of the race until Rob gradually worked to and overtook me, and I finished 9th.

The second race I pretty much was in 8th the whole race, with increasing separation in front and behind. So the biggest challenge was just to stay committed and focused, and indeed I finished 8th.

l'm not the best starter either. Lost 5 places at the start in Dubai :/

Haha wondered why you was with us before the hairpin. I posted how I start before. It needs practice because if the throttle is on too long before the green light it will bog down

For my race synopsis: First race I got off to an okay start but as already mentioned it was pretty crazy for the first few laps for those around 7th and below. Very sorry to whoever I made contact with on the second lap I think it was, after contact I let him through. My fault. By the third lap or so I was able to create separation from the racers behind and was in 8th position, which I held for most of the race until Rob gradually worked to and overtook me, and I finished 9th.

The second race I pretty much was in 8th the whole race, with increasing separation in front and behind. So the biggest challenge was just to stay committed and focused, and indeed I finished 8th.

I was hit at the hairpin lap 2, don't think it was you though, unless you was part of the 3 car group that hit me lap 4? Because whoever punted me lap 2 stayed there for a few seconds so could only have caught me if in the 4 car pile up at turn 3

I'll take that, especially with no practice and 1st time driving both cars. I was expecting better with the Lotus but I couldn't get the tyres warm in qualifying and they went cold half way through lap 1. All race I'd catch Linnuke then either lock up or lose the rear. I nearly quit 3 or 4 times

Hmm, yeah I don't think it could have been me since I wasn't a part of any further contact with anyone after that I don't believe, and certainly not a four car pileup, don't remember that. Sorry if it was me somehow though!

At least one of those at the back in race 1 was doing it on purpose IMO. :(

Some of the backmarkers were a bit wild.. Sproket had few incidents with them and I saw one in my mirror going really deep into the hairpin.

Another good week for me.

Race 1, I qualified 4th just behind Pink. A good start saw me leapfrog her into 3rd by the first turn, with Her, Leipzig, BVB and Linnuke close behind. The next 3-4 laps were very close with Myself and Leipzig/BVB, us three swapping positions and running within 0.5sec of each other until they started a huge scrap over 4th, allowing me to get away from the two Team-mates and Pink. I was able to pull away from this for the rest of the race, but had no chance of catching Sproket and Mantu, (You two were unreal that race! :eek:), so I settled for 3rd.

Race 2, I had initially qualified on Pole until my game errored, meaning I had to join back quickly to set a time and eventually qualified 4th. A bad start saw me drop two positions into Turn 1 and then I had slight contact with Sproket, unfortunately putting him onto the grass and dropping him down the order (Sorry!). At the start of Lap 2, I was closing on BVB down the straight, who was also closing on Pink, so we entered the braking zone for Turn 1 3-wide and I was able to dive down the inside of both of them cleanly to take 3rd position. What followed was the most exciting 17 laps I have ever driven. I had put way too much fuel into the car, meaning my car really struggled in the corners and I had to defend hard from Pink, who was so much faster in the twisty bits, but on the main straight, I had an enormous speed advantage over her so if she passed me, I could close up on the straight and re-pass her into Turn 1. For almost 17 laps, via a Pink cut-track penalty, she was always with 0.5sec, usually closer than that, putting me under huge pressure all the time and passing on a few occasions, but the straight line speed advantage I had meant I kept re-passing her down the main straight. In the end, I just about managed to hang on to another 3rd place, my 4th of the season (Mr Consistent here :p), thanks Pink for that epic race :D.

Congratulations to Sproket and Leipzig on the wins and "mostly" everyone on the clean racing, shame to hear there was a few wreckers :(.

P.S: I won't be able to take part in next week's round either Pink as my holiday flight is early next morning (6am!) and we are staying close to the airport overnight instead of travelling there early morning now.
A shame as I was really looking forward to next week, Monaco especially, but oh well, have fun on track everyone for the next two weeks and see you back on track at The Green Hell! :D

Yeah, 1 of the lapped cars was trying to race me and Delta I think. I had to give him lots of room and lost 2 seconds that lap

Sorry, had a few hours to compensate for 7 missing drivers. Found 4 (3 of them in the clean drivers list - 1 added me for clean racing)
Turns out 2 of them were kind of unfair, but we found another good driver for the group. Not too bad.

Race 1. Happy with my lap edged out a 10 sec lead over Mantu only to be taken out by one wrecker. If I wasn't able to brake a lot later than Mantu,he would of won. Then 2nd backmarker really dived for me. Luckily I was half expecting it so kept it pointing in a straight line. Great battling Mantu although sorry for the big push in T 2/3. I enjoyed that a lot. You were super consistent as I kept running deep in to the slowest hairpin.
Race 2. I could never get in to the times top 4 were doing. But had a great start. Lap 1 I got tagged by diesel and in lap 2 I got tagged my SuperBVB. At this point I thought everyone was out to get me. Lol. But after last week battling with diesel, I knew that wasn't the case. Also after that I had a wicked clean battle with Super. I could pull away in the twisty stuff. But down the straights, I was easy prey! He eventually won the battle lap 17. Well done everyone and sorry I had to go quick but I had to to another 16 laps round Bathurst. Because all that obviously wasn't enough!
Thanks again guys.
I know it's a bit VVroom but some people need initiation races.

Wouldn't this make sense with everybody that joins this league (including me) if time permits?

It's too bad a couple drivers were maybe unfair, but I think overall when you consider the new drivers and the two open wheel events this was a fantastic event actually, with really great and clean racing on display throughout. :) So while I did have a few issues with backmarkers in the first race, and I saw some wrecks in the second race with the more difficult Lotus 78, none of that took away from what was a great experience and two competitive races imo. :) Thank you everyone who raced cleanly and gave it their best as always. I appreciate the effort to fill in a few drivers when we were missing so many regulars also, it could have been a bit stale otherwise with like 8 drivers on a 20 lap race.

I try my best. I just don't see how it could be fun hitting people with the weird collision physics PCars has. I have more fun wheel to wheel racing. Shame I couldn't race anyone in either race really because race 1 got taken out twice while taking it a bit easy till I got back into a groove and race 2 I just couldn't get the tyres to work in either session

Gave the Ginetta a quick couple of laps around Monaco after the races last night - it's slow as hell but it turns in really nicely, so hopefully should make for some good racing.

One error is going to end up in a race-ruining crash around there though :). And maybe not just for the person who makes the mistake!
