I haven't had much time to prepare for this race, so I really don't expect to be as dominant as I was in Zolder and Bathurst. I might actually be on the slower side of the top5 all things considered. I don't know. I want to drive on hards, but it's way too cold for those :lol:. Last sector is slippery as hell, and the final corner with that looooooong straight gives great opportunities to overtake. This should be a fun final race of the season.

Maybe @Smolda can snatch his first race win here if he can fend off @WhiteGhost2000 , @Newy656 and whoever else manages to surprise us with their pace!

It will be great race. I agree last corner is win or loose also back straight is great for pass. I did some practice as hoping to join last race. Unfortunately I will traveling again.

I wish you all to have great race. Shame it is over for me but looking forward to race you out side of this season and see you next one. As I have only 50% appearance I might stay in this group :).

Next season it will be a new car. Red car was great. Now it’s time to learn something new.

For me it was great season learned what I was hoping for as rookie. Started with @fireflaai rear bumper for 40mins. Hoping to change you again during last but it will need to wait ;) also remember last turn battle with @chasegaminguk and finally @Smolda and @Newy656 great racing.

But most I will remember is practicing together. I hope we will continue.

@Cravgar thanks for organizing RED team and all your tech advices. It was good to learn that my diff setups worked opposite what I was expecting;) now you guys can see who was behind my car setups

Lastly I cannon forget about our bets guru @Ironik THANKS A LOT THAT WAS FUN!!!

I've not done any practice yet spent more time trying to sort out shadowplay & then finally installing OBS so hopefully will be able to stream my pov, need to get some laps in on this totally new track to me so I'm also not expecting a high finish from this one, still expect @fireflaai to high on the podium & @Smolda needs a good result to take back 2nd position in the standings after unfortunately missing the last race. Looking forward to the last race though & nice to come away with the team championship thanks to a great 2nd half of the season by @Midweekcoma

I came here to say exactly what you are requesting. I will be streaming the race on www.twitch.tv/fireflaai

Mainly because as you said, I have nothing to wory about anymore. During the race in Dubai I had quite a few small stutters during the race, so I stopped streaming to eliminate all risks. Now that doesn't really matter anymore. As of now, I have only practiced for 30 minutes, so my pace is going to be limited. Maybe with my reduced pace I will have a lot more action during the race :)

We'll see how it goes.

if you want action you could always just start from the back ;) and were all allowed to use any means possible to stop you getting to the front:D:p

I was actually thinking about this too, but I don't want to disturb the remaining spots of the championship by doing goofy ****. I will drive like I would normally do.

I think i was doing like 40's on racepace? Don't really know because I barely had any laps that didn't get invalidated during my 30minutes of practice. These kerbs are getting on my nerves.

This was with fresh softs and I have no clue how long those are going to last with me behind the wheel. I would've used hards if it wasn't so damn cold.

I can do 40's with race fuel, but I spin A LOT ... so, my main goal here will be not to crash, even though I need a lot of points to finish 2nd in the championship :)

We can run an epilogue race next week, like we did last season, and use reversed championship order to have some fun :) @ some legendary track, say Spa (I love Spa!), or Monza? :)

Good idea, I would vote Monza as I did pretty well there last season :p I can sort something out tomorrow. Reverse championship grid and I'll think of some crazy weather options :D
