I like this track but it is so easy to make a mistake especially the left up the hill. I think and don't quote me I am low 1:13's

Well what a crap race that was,yet again i had very little in the way of any feel though the wheel( checked my settin after the race and found that they were halved from normal?why does it keep doin this....)and why do people feel that they can just dive down the inside just because they were faster?when I got blue flagged I would give room to in the safest place,not mid corner just because your there.....

Ill post my post here seen as most racers were from this tier.

Qualifying - 1st

4th pole of the season, and one i knew was impossible to throw away, Managed a 1.08.41x with an incredible middle sector of a 17.6. If i joined all my sectors together though i could of managed a 1.07.5, but pole is pole ;).

Race - 1st

The only thing i was worried about was the start, @robnoxious9000 had a decent enough start into turn 1 but i just about held him off, and i had a 2.4 second gap by the end of lap 1. After that nothing much happened it was almost like a TT to me, lapped everyone but @robnoxious9000 but i was 10 seconds away from him at the end.

On lap 3 or 4 i had a weird moment with the car i've tagged it at the bottom of this post as (weird issue with the car) can someone tell me what went on here.

I think last night proved Laguna Seca is my best track and i only had a couple of issues and that were with some lapped cars. I think i was lapping @RGT hayc at turn 1 and when i passed him in the braking zone he just slammed straight into me.. and there was another backmarker on lap 39 at the last corner who was confused where the track was and i had to avoid him coming across me in the braking zone.

Anyhow shame how this league has dissipated but with @GUNNERGAMBLE not racing that has pretty much set me up for my 4th championship here at AOR, if @robnoxious9000 finished 3rd here i would of only needed pole so hopefully next week i don't D/c!!

Plus with @GUNNERGAMBLE not racing me and @Miccky have stopped @robnoxious9000 & @GUNNERGAMBLE winning the constructors till the last race.

Well done to @robnoxious9000 on second and a brilliantly close 3rd to @RBOS_00 .

And well done to @WilliamGibsonTV on your second win in a row!

See you all next week at Sonoma!!!

What happened at race start? Someone has replay?
Totally my fault on the grid. Yabba had asked me to screenshot the qualy and race results. I forgot to get qualy so thought I'd be able to get the positions off my tablet quickly while we were on the grid. I locked it when trying to screen grab and just got it unlocked before the lights went green, threw it to one side and missed my gear change so I was just revving on the grid, then when I got it in gear my wheels were just spinning, got hit up the rear and other people started hitting me.

So sorry if it messed anyones race up, it messed mine up, I had to crawl round with damage and pit. 100% my fault though, sorry guys

Don't know I had no engine noise and no turning ability. You can kinda hear the turbo but that's about it.
