Annoyed.

Considering it's a 100 lap endurance race, I assumed people wouldn't be erratic/gung-ho on the first couple of laps....Wrong...Part of two separate accidents I couldn't avoid in the first few laps. Forced to crawl around at snails pace after the car was destroyed, going 2 and a half laps down on the field. Called it quits after that considering it was obvious I'd be nothing more than a hindrance as a lapped car at that point, first time I've left a league race early by intention. Call it a rage if you must, but I'm quite bothered by the circumstances in which I was forced out of any race contention..

Wasn't expecting that! Quali was very good and very close between myself and Axeman.

I was very cautious at the formation lap and the start and I had to avoid a spinning car. Next lap, I hit the pit entrance and had to pit for damage. From then on, I just had to drive as aggressively as I could without mistakes. Kept on plugging away at Axeman's lead (slowly but surely - our pace was the same) and I finally got an opportunity to pass him a couple of laps from the end.

All-in-all, I enjoyed that. :)

bittersweet for me. Had the pace and was pushing 100% all race thanks to @SAkidd pushing me to the limit(similar pace). but i made about 6 or 7 mistakes and this cost me about 20-30 seconds and @AOR Benjamin blocked me when being lapped 3 times!!!!. Gutted on lap 97 when i locked the rear into turn 1 and got a cut truck(was so angry for a few corners)and sakid manged to get the lead. But i loved that car and track to drive . I'd rather push 100% and crash than trundle the race to the finish at 90% which is why i'm not to dissapointed to lose the race. ps @The Genius can we please get the correct number of laps sorted for next race we were meant to do 2.4 hours not near 3hours.

gotta say that attitude is terrible. If it's possible to get to the pitstop you should carry on at least to get some fun driving and finnishing an endurence race. I lost 3-4 minutes in silverstone but i still carried on

Were you two and a half laps behind the ENTIRE field when you lost that time, and was it with 90+ laps still left? If not then I don't see how you can criticise me and comment on my attitude.

I get my enjoyment purley from driving on the limit for 2.4 hours doesnt matter what position i'm in or how laps down i am, that way you always feel happy and a battle or a win is just a bonus. thats my mentality. If you are on your own then why not battle with the track. i'd rather have 98 laps to catch up than lose with 2 laps to go. but i've i've always been ultra dedicated in league races so mabey it's just me
