Not great first impressions for my first race in this tier. No host, no communication and two people have saying they won’t be able to race within half hour of 8pm.

Knew qualifying on ultras would ruin my race but I just wanted a pole as this was my first race in this tier!

Race start was weird, LC had weird connection issues then there must have been some start latency because 2nd and 3rd flew past me into first corner. I got squeezed wide and had to go off track at turn 1 so got two overtake penalties, stop go ones. Then a Renault spins me off and I'm done.

Oh well I can keep the pole in my stats even if I did finish last lol.

Well that was eventful.
I made a call to restart quali as 2 drivers had messaged me before a lap was set, as conditions was light cloud in the 1st session I also made a call to turn the weather to light cloud for the restart.
Then on the grid I must of froze so had to leave and rejoin on lap 2, the rest is history.
What a race, I couldn't believe my luck and thought it was over for me but got back in and drove probably the best drive I've ever done.
Highlights to come...

I also didn't see the need for a restart, you had readied up so that means it's go time. We all know it's 8pm start...

@LC SPEED DEMON pretty sure laps had been set, and to me it seemed like you crashed and then decided to restart the session.
This annoyed me as much as you trust me, I was the first one out on track and on my flying lap I was trying to invite the other 2 drivers but it wouldn't let me so I crashed on purpose to signal a restart before anyone had set a lap.

Got punted from behind into T4 which dropped me to last but still managed so claw it back to some decent points, despite penalties.

Had some great racing with @Bibin Daniel mid race, and a photo-finish sprint with @TeakQuickshare. Sadly dropped back to P6 with penalties despite finishing P4 at the line.

Slowing down to get DRS??

Yes but I'm host not cod, I don't normally invite people jobo does so I missed a couple. I did mention in the last race to message me for inv, but obviously with the confusion I felt the best thing to do is restart as your allowed to if a lap hasn't been set.
