Sorry for short notice but I won't be able to make it tonight. Hope you have better luck with Steam this week. I am supposed to be backup host so I hope @Gxbbs internet is also on good form.​

**** happens... I crashed and I forgot to have a pitstop ready... because I had no plans to do that.

So I enter the pits to repair and they change my tyres to "Soft". Great! I do the (so slow and slippery) outlap and enter the pits again, selecting "Rain".

They put me softs.

Game over :( I don't know what really happened :(

Well that wasn't a good race for me, I wasn't expecting much driving an Audi in the rain but my pace was abysmal. I don't understand how though, I was doing 1:48s in the race just an hour before, and yet when the real race comes, I can't get out of the 1:51s.

Anyway I qualified 7th with a 1:49:1, a second off my pb, which was when I started to wonder what was wrong with my car. The race started and I was very surprised by how clean lap 1 was, I got into 6th and then gradually I started going backwards and my setup went out of the window. I had cold brakes, cold tyres, no grip, no traction and a complete inability to outdrag anyone on the straight. (But apart from that the car was fine)

I didn't have many battles mainly because I was so slow, I did have a brief battle with @SVK_Duchi which consisted of me parking on every apex and slowing us both down. I had planned to get through the race without pitting but on lap 16 I spun out on the exit of the second chicane and collected @F1 racer, I'm sorry for getting in your way and I hope I didn't cause you any damage. Unfortunately I had to pit with suspension damage, shortly after that I was lapped and then I didn't see anyone else until I gained a place on @WarnTyre after he had to pit for a second time leaving me to finish in 8th place.

Overall this was a damage limitation race and I'll take 8th, but I'm hoping for much more later in the season now that the races are mostly dry and the tracks favour the Audi a bit more.

For me it was a wonderful race! Not to sound cocky.. abit boring with no1 close enough me to fight with.
@Gxbbs held 2nd place for so long it was incredible! But it was a rainy day on Imola and **** happened, hopefully that will be sorted out :)
OVerall a VERY good start, and VERY good first lap! I was so nervous that we would all sit on eachother in first corner and having to restart race, but hey! We all did a tremendous job being careful! Good race all of you! =)

@Philip Soderholm You're already looking good to get promoted or even win the championship with the pace you've shown so far.
Thank you mate! Been a dream to be in AOR-league for about a year now.. So i really hope i can have a chance to jump off ^^
Biggest goal is to race alongside @Papand and @TonyR that is kinda the guys that made me go into this. :)

Don't worry about it, I saw you coming so I didn't turn in and it was only a matter of time before you would have had me anyway.

I had an awesome start, and my average laptime were 1.48-1.47 , i watched the battle between you and Gxbbs, it is hard to overtake on Imola especially in rain.
I am happy with my results on Imola, and very happy with how respectful all was first laps! No major incidents at all! :D

Very pleased with my race and result yesterday. I didn't make a single mistake until the last corner, but without big damage. Finishing 2nd is way more than I hoped for as before yesterday I only practised Imola in dry weather. I finetuned my dry setup a bit and it paid off.

Started 3rd but soon lost 2 places due to being overcareful. I must say that everyone did a damn good job of respecting each other. Couldn't see anything go wrong the first lap, well done to all! I was quickly back in 4th as @WarnTyre had a cut track penalty. As of then I had a tremendous battle for 2nd place with @Gxbbs and @DANGEROUS GIANETTA for more than 20 laps. We just couldn't get passed @Gxbbs and I wouldn't risk taking out all of us so I decided to wait for a mistake. And that mistake came when they went side by side into the Villeneuve corners. They both went wide and I sneaked into 2nd. By that time @Philip Soderholm already had a lead of 40s+ and it was just a matter of keeping @Gxbbs behind and not making mistakes.

I did all that and was very excited with this 2nd place. Congrats to my teammate with the win!
