Never thought I would be happy to disconnect from a race! Worst race of the season by far. I was bored stiffless, Getting bullsh*t penaltys, Spinning out constanty, Having a JCB RGT-8 instead of a Ruf, Honestly I would have rather drove any car tonight other than the RUF, I would have even taken the ginetta. At some points I could feel my eyes getting heavy as I was that bored, Im going to pretend this race never happened :)

Oh bore off. I wasnt aggressive at all. Stop fishing for a bite, Im bored of you.
Your driving standards were awefull tonight @RicciardoF1 you pushed me off in lap 1 which cost me a lot of places....afterwards my race was compromised by @Big-Kid-Daddy which spun in front of me and i couldnt avoid him...my top speed was completely gone...bkd drove by me on the straight like a mercedes vs manor :D so i lost a lot of time in the first 14 laps...then at the pitstop my car was fixed and straight out of the box i was over 2 seconds a lap faster doing constant 2:01 low....i gained to @RicciardoF1 and he spun again and i couldnt avoid him had another damage...was still gaining though on guys in front finished only 20 seconds behind p3 i guess so could have been much better tonight but i guess it was just my tough luck tonight...

@RicciardoF1 @pete day please stop bickering with one another please. I would appreciate it a lot. Thank you

@Lorrentz @RicciardoF1 Ill see you both in the stewards sadly, I'm not impressed with lap one whatsoever. (Mainly directed at Lorrentz, cutting across on Ricciardo and causing me to go off was a silly first lap move)
I was pushed of mate by @Ricciardo had to go all the way through the grass which cost me a lot of time and places cuz i got a 5 second penalty and later on i was cut by ricciardo and the game gave me another 10...pffff

Excuse me? I did not do anything wrong in lap one. As Tigerkart said you cut across me causing a massive chain reaction.

Right a more positive note now!

P5 I'll take. One more lap and a hell of a lot less penalties, I would have had P4.

The start I already explained about, but I got a BS penalty for cutting the track when I was forced off. Then on lap two, Lorrentz and Big-Kid-Daddy made contact? I tried to avoid it and did so but I ran wide. Another penalty for corner cutting. For the next 14 laps, I had some good clean battles with @RicciardoF1 @Big-Kid-Daddy and @Graeme Weston before pitting. Had a slow stop and to make matters worse, I had 3-4 BS penalties for cutting the track because I kept making mistakes. Miraculously, I caught @Big-Kid-Daddy and @evanzo7 On the last lap I had a great tussle with Evanzo and was only 5 tenths away from @Big-Kid-Daddy

Well done @chris130256 for winning on your comeback. Still should've joined me in the Merc though ;)

Well that was interesting, least favorite track of the season so far and it was my most consistent race and my best finish of the season!

Qualified 5th which was a surprise in itself, was sitting around 3rd & 4th for the first few laps before a mistake sent me to 5th. After that the race was very quiet for me which was good, I managed to keep doing quick consistent laps until just before my pit stop. Stayed out 1 lap too many then @Big-Kid-Daddy jumped me in the pits, no idea how, I had 6seconds or so on you but oh well, meant I had some to race with until the end.

Had some good battles until @Big-Kid-Daddy made a mistake into turn 6 but on my screen it looked like he almost stopped on the apex and I collected him which was a shame because we were both doing well. I ended up getting damage from that and it made my last 3/4 laps tough. That helped @Tigerkart_22 catch me and take my 5th, gutted but I'm still ok with 6th! :)

I had a different thought at the time. Sorry for the misunderstandig. (If that's the case) I'm still going to the stewards though as that did ruin my race

Well I came into the Pits and my tyres did not change so came back out on heavily worn tyres and no choice but to race on.

I was happily alongside @Lorrentz until he suddenly cut across me and pushed me into tigerkart and caused a huge incident.

Well from my view I pulled out from behind you, Was alongside then your car swerved across my front end and took me and @Tigerkart_22 with you.
