About the Jan -vs- Speedy protest, i hope that can be thrown out. Let Speedy take 0 penalties, he does not deserve to be punished. :wink:

Too bad i could not race today. :( I got home later than i thought....

Qualifications:
Very nice quali for me, perfect, no problems at all. Probably my pb with fuel (maybe that's because I didn't train at all with fuel).

Race:
I decided to use a 3-pits strategy in order to escape the group in first laps. That worked completely, and my constancy made the rest. This was the best race so far, for me: couple of small mistakes and one crash. Not more than 3 seconds lost in overall time.
Clean race, not many lapped cars, not much traffic. Very nice.

Good Qual, 2° but very bad race!
At the beginning me and Lamppu start a suicide game by hitting each other :(

Sry Lamppu!

Next race I will try to stay far from you! :wink: :wink: :wink:

Good qual 4th. In first corner of race I was pushed out, perfect 2 stops fuelling strategy gave 3rd place in a race.

Why the hell would you do that?

What total bullshit!

The first race was on a Sunday and all 12 drivers made it, i see no reason why you should remove weekend races..... I'm quite pissed at this news.

I'd prefer weekends as race days...Though I wouldn't have had made it last weekend, but it was an exception. But if you have a good reason to move the races on weekdays, for me there's no problems. :)

Not a good idea to switch dates like that, It may be more comfortable for some players but others get shafted.

Would be nice if Sunday dates stay and Saturday dates move up 1 day [to Sunday].

Yes, I agree. No need to move Sunday's races. Just move Saturday's races to Sunday ;)

3rd is nice considering i don't like this track. Only did little practice so i was not as fast. Although, before the 2nd pit stops I could have made a move to pass Jazzy, I was faster than him at that part of the race. Anyway I was too cautious in the early laps and he pitted laps after me so i had no way to keep in front.

Lucky Jazzy takes the win. :) ahahah, well nice job. :wink:

I have only a few races remaining... a win would be very nice so I think I should go for the aggressive tactic and maybe i can grab one.

Well, dede isn't so unreachable: Jazzy proved it.

Qualifications:
I didn't train much (about 100 laps in overall, 1 race simulation and 1 lapwanking session). In both Warmup and Qualifications I beat my pb (done without fuel). Quite perfect session.

Race:
Quite a great 1st stint (1 crash only - quite unlucky too because Jeffrey was behind me, I lost more time than a normal crash). The second stint was completely bad (I lost concentration due to big gap, and I started crashing a lot). Luckily I had enough gap on Jazzyclub. The big mistake came at last pitstop, when I forgot that the right percentage of fuel was 87% (NOT 78%!). I didn't realize it immediately: about 5 laps to the end, I realized fuel wasn't enough to complete the race, so I started modifying my driving style in order to try recovering the percentage I needed for the last lap (it resulted in some second lost with no fuel saved). So I decided to stop one more time to get back the 5% i needed for finishing the race, but that was enough for Jazzyclub to pass me. Well, it can happen, hehe :)

Indeed it can happen, Dede. If you have the replay, watch race 1 from last season (brands hatch). I lost the win because i was a few laps short on fuel. :x

Anyway, even though it was a lucky win for Jazz, he drove well and 1st was deserved.

MG my adsl is still down (more than 1 week disservice and the things are going worse!). I know that's ridiculous, but this is the way my isp works (it's the bigger ita provider...). Now I'm seriuosly intentioned to change, but I know that other providers are near the same (they all depend on my isp except FW).

Sry dede for team champ, but I dunno what to do...

Maybe, if u are sure u can't take part to next races, then why not giving a chance to Rawr (I guess he's the substitute nr.1).

With T. nothing is sure. This morning I've sent a letter and a fax to the customer service. Let's see what happens...

SWOS says that he wants to substitute if necessary (after Rawr, of course).
He can't post here yet since he lost his password for this forum. Anyway, count him in!

My worst race :(
WarmUp and Qual totally without concentration!
I finnally find it in race, but only for 14 laps.
In the pit I hit Keppana (sry again Kep) and lost all my good concentration!
I think I cause more damage to me than to him!
After that a lot of crashes and bad laps.

I miss a very good chance to battle with keppana for the 2° place.. :cry:

I hope to be more lucky next race :wink:

Qualifications:
I beat my previous personal best (done without fuel), so I couldn't be more satisfied.

Race:
Jazzyclub had the inner line at start, I managed to drive the first curve from outside and then I was inside again. After that it was just an attacking race (I chose a 3-pit strategy), with 2 crashes due to own mistake and many warps due to my connection. After my 2nd (while others stopped only once), I was still leading. I kept on driving fast because, well, you can never know what happens (last race docet). Now I just hope my mate comes back, otherwise it'll be too late for the Team Championship!

TEAM MANAGERS CAN REPLACE DRIVERS AFTER THEY MISS 3 RACES IN A ROW.

Ronald-TSM has been disqualified. Rawr is supposed to join 'The Knights of Malta'.

Thanks
