What? The stewards did not issue such a penalty. Where does it come from?

You have received 15 penalty points for the incident, which, as per section 5.4 of the league rules means:
If you accumulate 15 points, you will be awarded a Race Drive Through *
If you accumulate 25 points, you will be awarded a Stop&Go 30 Sec *
If you accumulate 40 points, you will be awarded a Race Ban

Well that was a terrible mess :oops: Just before race start checking the fuel level I noticed brake pads being at 4. Having 16 sec to start I didn’t dare change them and didn’t remember what pads were what. But after some 20 minutes it all went south. Every time I hit the brakes the back end just snapped away :rolleyes:

Really sorry for anyone I might have been impeding with my many spins before retiring from the race.
See you next time

What the heck happened there? Connection issues or?
Yeah, looked like connection issue. Had anything the whole race besides the usual rubberbanding on the straights but suddenly everything went ham

First top 15 finish of the season! VTEC power!! Even a top 10 was within grasp but couldn’t quite hold @Shooter80 or @Vanders behind with worn tires.

Great fun racing in close proximity all race. Too bad the NSX lacked a bit in top speed so that hurt my overtaking attempts. Also I was death scared in the righthander after main straight and wimped out when going two wide there.

Fun race and best result of the season. :cool:

Another really fun race from my side, with the added bonus of actually achieving the single digit finish I was aiming for (9th, but it still counts).

I met my target in Q on my first hotlap, could even have been a few tenths faster but I invalidated all the rest. Was happy with P13 on the grid, although I got a bit caught up on the inside at T1 and quite quickly dropped to around 16th.

Had some awesome racing over the first 45mins in a pack of 3 or 4 cars, we all traded places multiple times, on the straights and in the corners, with some great side-by-side action along the way. I stayed out a few laps longer than the other cars, as much as my fuel allowed, I hoped they would exit into some traffic and be slower than me with low fuel in clean air, while also shortening my second stint, which kinda half worked.

With a few laps fresher tyres than some of the cars ahead, I made up some positions after the stop, I profited from some others misfortune, and then was close at the end to losing 9th back to @eXcole who seemed to find some life in his tyres when mine were starting to give up.

Only had the very lightest of contacts (0.5sec repair time) through the whole race, which is astonishing considering how hard (yet ultimately, imo, fair) the racing was. Thanks to all involved especially @DaveGaming and @Recential.

No stream this week unfortunately, as the Tier 1 commentator couldn't make it to cover their race in time, so our usual Tier 2 commentary team stepped in to fill the gap. Hopefully normal service is resumed next week.

Looking on to Monza, the M6 isn't as fond of that as it is of PR, and while don't think I'll qualify or finish in the top 15 on pace, with the weather randomness, and knowing how well I can usually trust the big bimmer when the conditions are poor, there's always a chance of something better.
