If you commentating together with TonyR, I am sure couple of people will stay and help you :D
That would be bribery and besides, we already have two commentators so no need for another.

You're right, they are rumours! :p :p

Sorry Tony but busy prepping for Le Mans as I leave tomorrow! On a slightly different note though, I need a load of people for a quick video recording so if any of you could hang around for 20mins after your races to record some manual rolling starts, it would be very much appreciated! :) I need about 10 or so, and we'll just do a few runs of it. Don't worry, I'll be talking everyone through how we'll be doing it.
im down :D i guess :p depends on how the races go :D

Vettels hair in the 2nd video t0day posted is legendary.
I won't be able to commentate tonight I'm afraid, I have some family matters I must attend to. @TonyR , over to you my friend
Well, that's a problem. I can't really talk today as I have problems with my wisdom tooth. So I'll probably only record the races from spectator mode. Maybe @King-kodiak wants to comment on them later.

People really need to stop joining, leaving and then rejoining... you are increasing the odds of ghost cars and other funny bugs quite a lot

and also be aware of the track limits at many of the corners... including last corner and the one going up to the backstraight

F*cking kill me.

I don't know who joined me in hell on the exit of the final corner on lap 11, but to whoever it was, I'm sorry.

Basically, I completely lost the backend of the car going through the final corner, which usually is easily flat but that time somehow wasn't (maybe I touched the kerb or something). Car stopped right on the racing line, and despite me thinking I kept the clutch engaged, the engine shut off and I had to sit there and manually restart it. When I finally got drive again, I tried to get the car moved off the racing line as soon as possible. I thought it would be done fast enough for the next oncoming cars to see it in time... unfortunately, it was not...

RIP.

I'm a patient man, but a professional team like this, every races ramming me somebody, and therefore no chance to reach an acceptable result, so… a bit gloomy... I thought it was clear races are here. :(

I would just like to check a few things as after these races I am unclear regarding AOR's etiquette:
  1. Off the start line is it acceptable to just swerve to the left or right if the car in front of you doesn't get a great start, hitting another car that is going in a perfectly straight line next to you? @Gxbbs .
  2. I know the first corner was horrible in the first race, but if you get caught up in the chaos should you a) stay still and wait for the cars behind you to pass, or b) just drive straight across the track taking the cars behind out as you do so?
  3. If you spin and end up in the middle of the track with fast car approaching, should you a) Stay still and give them a chance to avoid you or b) try to move out of the way but actually drive straight into the path of the passing car #IDied, #Only2WheelsOnMyRide. @FisiFan91
  4. And finally, if your braking into a corner behind another car, with yet another car on your outside, if the car in front brakes a little early should you a) brake also and stay in position or b) move to the outside collecting the car that was there all along. @Gxbbs
Guys I know no one intentionally drives into anyone else, but if in doubt stick to your line or keep still when you have spun.

had a great first race until last lap where @Gxbbs hit me :p luckily i didnt lose positions...
2nd race went okay.. made many mistakes until last lap where i was in P8 and lost it going up hill for the back straight and i spun into wall and lost a tyre... i then tried to make it back home but @Gxbbs came and tried to help but killed my car :D

all in all a decent night for me as i wasnt involved in all the crashes apart from @Gxbbs
also a great thanks to my teammate @AJ for some great racing.. really giving the team some good points :p

Best result of the season so far with a 4th in the feature race and a 7th in the sprint race.

I managed to stay out of the pits in the feature race, my tires were dead! I was locking up at every breaking zone in the last 2 laps. Had there been 1 or 2 more laps, @estebano would've caught me for sure.

In the sprint race, I started in P10, got up to P4 in the first lap. Then the mistakes started, and I dropped all the way down to 8th. Managed to finish in P7.

Anyway, I more than doubled my points tally tonight, so I'm absolutely delighted!

Can someone post a video of the melee in Race 1 first lap turn 1?

While a few drivers (and we were the ones in early but still managed to avoid he car across the track) took their time and tried to avoid contact a number of, quite frankly, retards barrelled into the corner trying to push their way through resulting in a large number of cars having to pit and ruining their chances.
