Lucky we got lots of reservers to fill in the gaps...

In a strange way I'm looking forward to this just for the unknown.
I'm going to do some practice laps in bit but hopefully will get on early for the league session

Hi Stevie,
I cannot make the race tonight.
There is a very hot weather in South of France, 40°C at the moment near of Toulouse where I'm living and without air conditioning in my house it's already too hot to make the race, I have around 29-30°C in my simracing room.
I will let my spot to a reserve driver and comeback on next week.

Sorry to inform only now but I was wating in any case it was possible to make it.

Because the beta is dumb, a new session has had to be set up, the broken session will be advanced and ruined, so the new session will start at 18:15 GMT+1

damn, not my race. Did so much practice this week :cry:

I decided not to qualify and started from pits. From the back end I made my way through the field, before the first stop I was in reach of the top 20.

While turning into pit entry I noticed that my JRT refuel-button fails. That confused me so that I didn't know how to manually refuel, it took an eternity until my car was refueled.

A few laps later someone spins out between T9 and T10, I had to avoid him so I lost my line and spun myself. At the end I stand 90° in the middle of the apex of T10. In the rush I forgot the golden rule "DONT MOVE" and tried to escape to the inside. Sadly another one tried to avoid me over the grass and hit me. I'm very sorry for this, clearly my fault.

A a result of this my headlights were damaged so there was no way to find the way into pits and I ended the race.

I hope for a better one next week, cu all,
D.

Probably shouldn’t have raced! Still feel groggy from last week and didn’t really practice, had 3 massive lock ups that killed my tyres and couldn’t concentrate so got dsq but I managed not to kill any one In the process :cool:

Well what can I say, probably my proudest moment in 9 years of league racing. Was really struggling in practice but finally learned how to stay on the track when it mattered. Enjoyed racing with people who I don't normally race with. Thanks everyone for an extremely fun race :)

****. I'm so sorry @Dan_Suzuki . Literally worst race ever. Gutted. :(
Don't worry mate, **** happens!

I drove my first laps on this track yesterday, Impression after 5 laps: wtf is this. Impression after 10 laps: What an awesome track. Some nice flow on there :) Unfortunately I couldn't avoid Matthew when he spun in front of me which gave me a meatball. I'd love to race this track in the future again though, don't understand why it seems so unpopular.

Also sorry to @santsuke99 - looks like I netcode punted you. On my side I was still like 0,5m away from your car but apparently iRacing decided that's not far enough, didn't even get a 0x but yeah, unlucky.

i was really surprise by all the drivers mistakes during this race that was more a lottery than it could be on Nords but always fun to race with you all, i watched the streamlive to see what happened and i was like wtf cars spining at the same place same mistakes in Turn 2/9 for most of us. i still don't like this track with "big cars" but i really enjoyed the fuel cap with 2 stops strategie kind of sprint/fuelsaving at the same time.

Congrats Ivo on the win.

You can include yourself in it, because you span in turn 3 (right hairpin), and while trying to avoid you I got hit and sent into the grass :ROFLMAO:.
Then I got hit by netcode when trying to overtake Alex.
Then I span by myself trying to gain back the time lost.
Then I went off the track trying to overtake a lapped car.
Then I noticed too late that I had to save fuel to avoid a 3rd pit stop.
And also after my 1st pit stop, I unchecked tyre change, but I did it while still in the pitlane... So it must have enabled tyre change automatically when I went out, so I got new tyres after my 2nd pit stop....

Frustrating race for me as I had a good pace compared to other Pro/Am, but got 2 unlucky spins, and then I did too much mistakes....
