Enjoyable race from my end. Had a great qualifying which was faster than my time trial lap and got pole position.
Then in the race I made the mistake of restarting because of a disconnect. My apologies once again for all the mess that caused. All in all it made me a little bit stressed at the start of the race, which resulted in me over revving my car when shifting through the gears, resulting in a very bad launch. Then through the S-section I went wide, tried to correct myself when coming back to the racing line but overdid it. So I spun out, lost my front wing and was in last place.
After that, my pace was pretty good. I was however a little bit hesitant in overtaking @Nakianu because the biggest overtaking zones are through 130r and turn 1. Which I found scary places to overtake. In the end I got the position and got lucky with some cars in front of me having incidents and the time penalty of @TRL_graveltrap , giving me p4.

Congrats to @Borderline on his first podium and @Kryxeno on his race victory in his first race with us! Very impressive!

@RichyB if you were stressed then I was more so as my pc had crashed at 7:30 and proceeded to wipe my game from one of my accounts. I was lucky I was able to salvage it on another account but that along with my screen freezes definitely stressed me out. Also just asking guys I have an i3 4150 cpu, should I upgrade as I think I might have bottle necking issues and I have tried limiting my fps to 30 but I still freeze

Omg yes!!!! Def upgrade. I would recommend upgrading everything, if not possible go for I7-7700(k) and at least 16Gb of DDR4 RAM

@Biolite80 i would but I would rather not spend over £150 or $200 if possible so I am probably going for an i7 4970K to avoid having to switch my motherboard and get new RAM. I mean my GPU can run the game at 60 fps on normal settings but it is just I get stuttering issues like @Billamy did, especially in the pits

Maybe try to delete video recordings that you don't use? Your PC might use up a lot of memory when playing the game which can cause your screen freezing possibly.

I have 350GB free so I don't think it is a problem but thanks for the suggestion
