Race 1:
Qualified for 6th place and got inner line. Fine start and soon i found myself in 2nd place after dede made a mistake. Defended it for 2 laps, after that i made little mistake and dede passed me. Second stint was a battle with Lanz and siLciR for 3rd place. Lanz made mistake on lap 5 and i was now battling with siLciR for 3rd place (on lap 7 and after for 2nd place because Pablinho had disconnection problems). This battle became to the end on lap 13 when siLciR made some mistakes and i was driving alone for 2nd place.

Race 2:
Started on 4th place, which was once again inner line. First corner went well, but in second corner i was pushed to outside barrels by Pablinho, who as pushed by siLciR ;) not blaming you, it was just my fault to not simply use brake in that point. So i lost many position and i found myself in 10th place. End of the race was battling with lux, Shyguy, Burnout and Matic (who made some pit shortcutting tricks using the "bride bug", which actually didn't help at all in laptime). Finished for 6th place which was best i could do in that case.

Really fun cup, great racing..

Race 1:

A little disspointed with qualifying, made an average start, raced with Burnout and Lanz for position all race. Because I had track position on them after the start I could manage to block and force them into mistakes by leaving the door open sometimes a little in corners and then they drove into sand/tyres, giving me a big enough lead to cruise to 4th easily.

Race 2:

I felt I had enough pace for another 4th here, but I had a disconnect which lost me ten seconds.. I think realistically without it I would of probably been behind siLciR in 5th. But it did provide me with an awesome last lap battle with Burnout for the 7th spot.. we went side by side about 3 seperate times, we were wheel to wheel into the hairpin for the final time but I braked too early on the inside and he drove around the outside of me and took the spot. Great racing.

In both races I managed to escape the group before first curve. That was a luck, since people behind me got pushed out and lost several positions. In second race I made two major mistakes that relegated myself in third position, but after Shyguy's mistake I had clear track and I could push my car to the limit. At first mistake by Lanz I got the door open for victory. Pole + 2x win + 2x fastest lap. Wop!

Start 1:
Qualified for 6th place, what was pretty weak. First laps went fine and had nice battles with Shyguy and Lanz. Made some mistake in the hairpin and that's how i slipped to 4th place.

Start 2:
Starting on 8th place, had some accident in the hairpin, finished 6th.

Race 1: Was a little bit annoyed by keppana on the start, he bumped me in the door 3/4 times and didn't stop which slipped me back a bit.. but luckily at the first real braking turn everyone went off and made up a lot of positions. I hardly made any overtakes all race, but I made not ONE mistake, which I was very very happy with. That way I had track position on everyone, and did not think for a second about catching dede, but simply driving within the limits of the track and keeping others behind me. Every time someone drove up to me, I managed to drive constant enough that they could not pass and eventually made a mistake trying to do so. 2nd was a great result, really happy with it.

Race 2: Started off doing the same thing, was in 2nd for a lot of the race, then Lanz sped up and passed me, and dede dropped back and caused me to battle with him for a few laps.. this obviously made me nervous since dede is so good, and broke my concentration which meant Jormeli caught me for 3rd in the closing laps. Still, a good result, 4th.

It's not meant to be aggressive, but some contacts happen and the players will be punished for their acts. At this point one person is not welcome no more for this cup, just because he kamikazes and destroys other players race. I'm talking about REIROM, yeah. The reason why he wasn't before banned was that i would like to believe he could drive clean, but in Imola he shoved at last he doesn't belong in this cup, so he will have a travel to the banana isles. Videos prove it clear, kamikazed starts, kamikzed Augusto.

I've been thinking also about mine contact with Sejtan in first Melbourne start, i've been checked the video and be sure it was all mine fault, so i cancel my points of that start. I should have at least wait him in finish line to let him pass, as siLciR done gentle in Bahrain. I'm sorry for about that and wish you welcome to join the races again.

Here's videos of the races, feel free to watch and discuss them.
Race 1, TSB Melbourne - http://www.mediafire.com/?09ozyt2wbbovz1p
Race 2, TSB Bahrain - http://www.mediafire.com/?6ln0c58y8vjqit5
Race 3, TSB Shanghai - http://www.mediafire.com/?s6dlc29ne49a9ql
Race 4, TSB Imola - http://www.mediafire.com/?8l7c2ambt224d5l

And i have also other news, SRL will now have two weeks break. Scheduled 10 races will be dropped to 8 races, and the last 4 races will be hold on TSE tracks, which has longer starting grids to avoid start crashes. TSB tracks was a kind of testing and pioneer work, but these seems to be "out of date". Tracks will be released later. Possible we can have a test event.

Damn, am I the only one that hates the TSE large starting grids and the excitement it takes out of the start? :( I have really enjoyed starts with the normal sized starting grids, where there is actually an opportunity to make up or lose good ground.. tbh if I was designing a new, realistic league, I would use a grid just a little bigger than this grid, perhaps with double the space between the grid stalls. So about two carlengths between each stall.. but in TSE it is 4/5 carlengths, which means the maximum you can really make up on the start of the race is one spot.

You're in right, some of TSE-l tracks has way too long starting grids for overtaking many players in a start, maxium what you can do is to overtake 1 or 2 players. But at least we can have clean starts. I would love to use tracks which have normal length starting grids, but i hate that when it gets rough and chaos in first turns.

I would like to ask, if people would like to have fuels on?

Here's a plan:

Race length ~10min as a base. 100% fuel set to 700sec, Fill 30sec, Idle 10%, Slowdown 12%

Practice & Qualify: Startfuel change allowed, pitting allowed. Startfuel amount is free.
Race: Startfuel change allowed, pitting not allowed as a base. Startfuel must be 85-100% (90-100% recommended).

With that idle (and till 30) setting, my vote is for fuel on.
If idle>30, fuel off.

Personally I would rather not, simply because slower car = harder to overtake, and it doesn't really add much with strategy anyway. Unless you made the races a little longer and therefore a pitstop required.. I wouldn't see much point in it.

Hmmm... fuel increased the complications, but fun get worse. Too bad.

And... I will'not race again in a cup that allow reirom to participate. Even if ghost on!

Hell, both races got compromised, one because of lags and one because of dumb mistake with startfuel. Not sure if fuel adds more to the competition.

Here's the very short answer: it doesn't. The only thing it does is make the car slower and more boring in the first half of the race, which is bad because the car was already too slow for today's track even without fuel.

Sad but you are in correct, the car was too slow for today's track, and the other tracks to be coming. The main reason why i chose TSE tracks was because there was always first lap chaos in TSB tracks. Ok, TSE tracks are not made for this car, TSB tracks has crash chaos. It's not easy to choose between these. Well, if only TSB tracks have longer starting grids it could be more useful. Well, TSE tracks could be more useful if we add some speed for the car, but how much. But of course fuel adds some excitement for the race in other way, less fuel gives speed advantage, but increases a risk to run out of fuel.

Well it's then DTM, it has pit stops, very quick pit stops, the races are much longer (about 160km, race 1 hour). This is more like WTCC and there is no a pit stops (about 60km, race 25-30 min). That is ridiculous if we have pit stop because the race is 10 min long.
