Well haha, looking at the amount of time Jouni spend on track the last 3 days, he'll probably battle nobody :p


But you know, I already beat him this week so he can have this one :hilarious::hilarious:

We visited Watkins Glen 3 times here in AOR and everytime i was involved in a crash. This week i did 3 official Races at Watkins Glen and i never finished on the lead lap. and lost 220 iRating. So i am asking myself what will happen tonight:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

After a quick hospital check they released me without any injuries.
Alt-f4'd out of it because I probably would have ended upside down on the track.

I didn't feel comfortable at all today with the track, every lap was a struggle... Couldn't keep up with Chris, well done mate! (Wrote this before Kerry overtook you and you spun :p )

Like I said above, you need to spend at least the same amount of time as Jouni to be able to beat him and even then you only have a very small chance.

84 races and today it was the first time that i finished in P10. Crazy :). Thats all i have to say becuase race was a disaster. My early pit stop didnt work and then i had minor front wing damage which costed me 0,8 - 1sec/lap. :banghead:

4/4 crashes at Watkins Glen. Really dislike this track.

Qualifying was pretty awful really, 9th is not great.

The race wasn't much better, was fighting for 6th (which based on the results could have been a fight for the podium), but ruined it by decided that continuing the crashing streak was more important than a good result. I stand by my decision though, as it meant less laps of the track, which is always a good thing.

Anyway, next race is next! So, I'll do some racing then!

Pitted pretty early after beg in the fight with Fis and Fred....was sling shotting with Christoph but we weren't really getting anywhere. Then I disconnected for first time in ages....would have been with Fis and Fred once they pitted. Got back in and got back up to 18th so salvage some point in the fight with @FisiFan91 , though I've taken a drop week so that give me and extra couple of points advantage
Also what were the rules on getting incidents after the race? @Kptk92 Cos otherwise that would have been my first ever 0x race

Didnt do much practise around here so had no clue on ra e fuel just started with 6.6 gallons and see where the ship hits the wall :D

Q: wasnt expecting to be as high as in practise so p14 or 15 cant remember it was fine...

R: had a really good run and @Osterkamp had a real slow start so i overtook him on the straight allready and then i tried to take it carefully around the outside...when i wanted to rejoin the track @Osterkamp left me nowhere to go...so i had to hit the grass or bail out...decided to the some sort of both lol...lost a lot of speed on that run on the first straight so ppl flew by...luckily i could hang it around the outside and then the inside with @heuer91 so i still was in the same place i started i guess..hanging on @Tye his back...and then a really cool battle unfolded with @Patrick Kessler @Tye @xII robo IIx and me...in the end patrick could sneak away and @Tye lost it in turn 9.... Then i gave @xII robo IIx a run for his money and eventually he spun out at turn 9 as well...really hate that corner myself i took it very carefully all race :) after that it was pretty boring since @Patrick Kessler was 4.5 seconds up the road...i catched him to 3.5 seconds but then i messed up my pitstop...overshot the lollypop man...backed and overshot it again lol...so unfortunately that probably cost me a shot on @Mitti87 in the end i was catching him but i was too far away allready...but well p11 i'll take it...next week mid ohio which i really like...was running very well there last time out but got spanked a couple of times :D see ya guys next week

Race start around 1 hour 23/24 i guess
