Dear AOR staff, after the experience of 11 laps of green hell, can we do this again - like mandatory race every season ️ loved it!
Finishing P5 wasn't expected. I had Major crash at the end of lap 1 (hit the kerb at high speed) which forced me into pits for damage rapair. Then had to pit again at the end of lap 7 I think which worked out right for me as I was up to 7th, thought I was gonna be caught on the last lap by meester but was lucky and I got 5th,well happy & great experience with some great racers
totally agree - love the green hell - more please :love:

Would love to do a team 24hr round here. Last one I done here was on Xbox/Forza many years ago.

well, starting last was never going to be easy on this track, but 1st lap was going well - bit of a snarl up in second sector, managed to slide past up to 8th, long straight passed a slow @BrakeCheck101 - 7th - then at the end of the lap couldn't avoid a spinning @robsterf1 so quick dive into the pits for repair, then set about making up some time. @Jarryd Vermeulen setting a good pace at the front, was just about hanging on to his pace, then @FSR_FrankForest took over and i was slowly catching (still about 45 secs back) leaders pitted and i was in 1st, but still had to pit for fuel, came out 4th then @Jannutz dc-ed leaving me with 3rd. best i could have expected really, so pretty happy overall. good recovery from @Chickano to keep the team points coming in.

good stuff :)
just watched first lap again - correction: "long straight passed a slow @AndyBWHG " sorry

Here my (embarrassing) highlights:



Apologies again for my spin in front of everyone on lap 1 - particularly @AndyBWHG.

I made a stupid decision to change my setup just before the race and I paid the price for that.

However, it was good to battle @biba99 and @planettoon, so I've got a few clips of you guys.

Well done again to the top three. Great performance.

So... an eagle-eyed viewer has told me that my traction control doesn’t appear to have been on in the race. If you look at the dial from 4.46 onwards (when I had to go back to using footage from my live stream) the TC sensor doesn’t appear to be flashing, which might explain why I was struggling so much with oversteer and general skittish behaviour from the car.

Did anyone else suffer this? Was wondering if it was a lobby glitch or if it was just me?

I didn’t adjust my TC at any time during the race as I never even thought to try and adjust it as I normally don’t touch it, so just wondering if it was my own issue.

Hey bud - no worries. Lot of pressure leading from the front so these things happen :).

Reverse grid and TC probs not gonna help either. Better luck next week. Gonna be interesting in the rain :eek:.

This is very late but started 13th, followed station for the most part on lap 1 think. I made up a spot maybe 2 before the melee went into the back of matt darvs and got 8 front damage but also made up a place or 2 as a result of the kerfuffle. Stayed out for lap 2 as well , made a move on someone after getting a good run towards flugplatz side by side and through. Good racing whoever that was. Pitted early and from there i didn't see much of anyone really bar the odd person. I made 2 errors in the ace and one cost me about a minute all in with pitstop and driving most of the lap with damage. Completed the race in 4th which was a decent result.

Congrats to @MattDarvs @FSR_FrankForest and @Slicker for the podium spots and all who finished to tame the green hell. Thanks to streamers and commentators too. I've a couple vids to do (3 now ) i'll try get at least 2 up before the bank hols are over . Thanks

Cool video, mate! Great dedication and good racing spirit to hang in there! You nailed it with my annoyance!
