What was Goldtrack007's DSQ's for? I've yet to see that guy on track. He just bounces in and out of the lobbies.
Not a clue. Must've been something drastic tho as it was on the 1st (or 2nd) lap. Only thing I can think of that'd get u DSQ'd straight away is driving the wrong way. I mean there aren't enough 'cuttable' corners to get DSQ'd that quickly.


Sorry I missed it, got the damn timezones wrong :(
Yeah, I saw that you were online and on F1 but away. We waited till 10 past to see if you'd join. You didn't miss much tho tbh, 6 finishers in race 1, 5 in race 2. And overall it was fairly **** imo.

On that point, I havent done a race report in a while and after the day I've had today, I'm kind of in 'a mood' so I'm gonna vent a little. To the person's involved please note that I'm not annoyed with you per say, more the situation itself:

Race 1: Was in P3 (I think maybe p4) tryin to not get caught by the car behind near the end then I collected my TM who had crashed at the Hairpin. I didn't/couldn't see him until I turned into the corner and by then it was too late, I tried to avoid him but couldnt do a whole heap about it and clipped his rear left losing the right half of my front wing. As a result of not wanting to give up my place by pitting again, I carried on but was getting some bad understeer mostly at the top of the hill and Tabac. The understeer and the fact that I was flustered coz of said U/S meant that the car behind was catching me faster than I wanted him to, which meant i was even more flustered. And then I took the other half of my wing off and the rest is, as they say, history.

Race 2: 1st 3 corners went well, Made it up to P6 from 8th out of T1, Followed Limitless up the hill. He then clipped the inside wall at Casino Square? (right hander, top of the hill) I avoided him, just, by diving round his outside. Had the place (P5) until Massenet where he then dives up the inside/locks up/out brakes himself/something, leaving me no where to go except into the wall, obliterating my front wing and my race. To his credit he waited and let me past but there was no point (plus I did say to not too but you may not of heard me coz your mic's busted) Then in my haste to get back to the pits asap I locked up into the chicane out of the tunnel, barreled across the run off and got a 10sec pen. Exit the pits, 25+secs down with 10secs to be added on still! Not only that but because I had started on the primes I still had to do 2 fecking stops as I didn't want to run a set of opts for 19 laps. I stopped again L11 and on L15 ish I balls'd it up a treat whilst I was all on my lonesome and lost all my front wing and had to pit for a 3rd time. So while it says I finished P5 (yay and all that jazz :meh:) It was still technically stone dead last, And by a big ****ing margin to boot. :grumpy:

TLDR Version:
Both races ruined. Partly, thru no fault of my own, from various calamities.
And I actually voted for this track!? :banghead:

You can get a dsq on lap 1 if you go straight over the chicane at the end of the tunnel without braking when in the race...

The 2 incidents I spoke of the other day. Sry for the dodgy quality, was fine before I uploaded it to youtube, I suspect I saved (and therefore uploaded) it in the wrong format and I cba to change it now. Also watch your sound, my opening vid is about 20x louder than it should be for reasons that are unclear to me. :sorry:
