Is this a 2 stop or a 3 stop, I think 2 is possible but 3 might be quicker with the tyre wear at this track

Spanish GP - note to all leagues:

Some of you might have noticed the threads here and here about Xbox 360 having apparently been hacked which has caused occasional issues for people with regards to the online functionality.

At the moment, we are planning to carry on as nornal with trying to host tonight's league races and hope that we won't face any issues. However, the general guideline we've set is that if 4 or more people in the league (who weren't already missing the race for other reasons) are unable to get on due to these issues, the race will be postponed to 21st December (which was originally scheduled to be a race day before the calendar change).

We hope this won't be necessary, but just so that people are aware of the potential situation if issues do occur.

Also, note that if you haven't been on the Xbox 360 recently, you will be forced to do an Xbox update when logging on - this takes quite a long time, so make sure you are online in good time before the races are scheduled to start!

Taken out by lag, lag in front and behind me, 4 people lag out in the first 10 laps then I go on lap 20 -_- Wasn't having the best of races either way, may have been able to squeeze into the points though depending on what happened in front of me, shame though, especially as I can't make Monaco :(

Could've snuck a podium if LC hadn't been a road block for the first 6 laps but still very happy :cigar:

Qualifying: 2nd

Race: 2nd
Enjoyed my first league race in the AOR, had a few close battles with Silentmole & LC, sadly had the dreaded lag spike at the worst possible time when i'd just got back in to the DRS zone of Silentmole and after that i couldn't gain on him.
Thanks for the racing anyway guys, and hope to race again soon (when a full driver isn't able to race)
Also good win to Silentmole!

Quali 8th, Race 8th

Started on options, then done P-O-O. Thought 3 stop would be better for me. In the first stint I was holding onto the 5 car battle, but when I came in end of lap 7 for primes I just fell off the pace. Basically came down to the final stint for me when I was on fresh options and overtook 3 people, though disappointed I couldn't get Tom at the end. Was surprisingly a lot of disconnects , though I'm sure that may well be down to XBLive and the past couple of days. Couple of rage quits in there though?

Leeroy you mid-week rage quite Rug's social cos you lost yer wing, something similar happen tonight? And @moana2907 I overtook into Turn 1 and you immediately left. Or dsc but I find it hard to believe you dsc as soon as I passed you.
