Me, Tiger and Genius all saw your car lag off the line and hit the guy opposite. No-one's to blame, but everyone else's connection seemed fine.

What an awful race that was!

Start was just messed up, on the grid it showed me in first, but when I attempt to drive off it changes to neutral, so already disadvantaged. After that, just stuck with the no-stop strategy, and if I hadn't of shat myself after @Dejaeger22 went off/had lag on the chicane I would have finished in a comfortable 5th :(. Nice little battle with @Orange Tiger NL though :p

A lot of very fast guys in this division, not expecting to make the podium at all this season.

My connection was bad too. Especially after my pitstop. Everyone I came across was lagging. I guess the problem was my connection than?

It was only you, you did lag at the start and launched into a couple of guys. Have it on video, and other people did see it was only you.

And now, the race report:

So qualifying was bound to be a bit tricky considering I hadn't played the game for 8 or 9 days, and getting quickly into the 1:29s was probably as good as possible. 9th on the grid.

The race was something else, though :D

After crawling around the lag-cannon at the start, managed to dice with @Orange Tiger NL for 3 or 4 laps before making a major mistake (this becomes a repeating trend). My controller batteries then began to run low so decided to pit for fresh tyres, coming out just behind @StubbornGymnast and passed him after winning the lapped-car drag race out of the Old Hairpin...before spinning at turn 1 -_-

The next successful passing move happened going into the Old Hairpin, holding it round the outside of turn 3 before sliding along the inside line to make it stick - not hard to guess what happened next...

The novel overtakes kept happening, whether it was at the chicane, the first hairpin after the chicane, or turn 1 (the one that follows the first hairpin proceeding the first hairpin after the chicane) but so were the spins and mistakes. Luckily, @The Genius was a comforting presence by copying my strategy whilst trying to lap me :p

Then @Dejaeger22 pitted and a 5-lap sprint to the finish developed. He came out behind me, and after defending the inside at turn 10 on one lap, a spinning Genius blocked my path and gave him an easy pass - it then became about lap times and pressuring one another into a mistake. It didn't happen, however, and we were separated by less than a tenth at the line. 8th place.

Great race all, especially since overtaking is supposed to be impossible here ;)

You were perfectly fine on my screen when we had that battle, maybe I need to complain to my broadband providers... :rolleyes:

I think you are reffering to me. From my pov: I had a good start but in the front end of the grid some cars collided. You where very slow into turn 1, i saw that you had damage. I stayed behind you aware of your damage when on my screen you braked really early for a corner and caught me off guard and i hit youre back and we where both off. I let you back through. Im really sorry for the extra damage i presumably have caused. Although you had damage i never would have thought you would brake on the point where you did so it completely caught me out. I tryed to avoid you as much as i could really..
