i also had great fun driving this cup! thx for organizing!
about yesterdays race: not much to say, solid 2nd place! after left key locked up in lap 1, resulting in crashing and therefore being stucked in traffic i knew my chances to fight for the win came down to 0%! had about 3 crashes due to that issue! damn ya SCARTS! :lol: pitty because i had the same pace like woki!
anyway congratz to woki!

gg to woki and all others. well, except reirom and the other bw driver in the season.

tracks in the season were mostly kinda nice - quite enjoyable to drive with this car. since i often had to use keyboards not supporting my normal driving style, in the end it was lucky that the races were with idle consumption <100%.

unluckily the warps and lags were probably the worst ever in a season for me - maybe partly with exceptions compared to a brazilian one.
since i might travel around a lot and depend on not so fast WLAN connections, even if the server would be fine, my connection likely wont be in the near future anyway.



the race..
i did a local full simulation at 17th july.
warmup 56.539 (vs matic 56.589)
quali 55.701 (4 laps 55.x) (vs wokinger 56.107)
race 55.586 (36:11.624) (vs wokinger 55.623, 36:33.292 - also with 0 laps practice before)

so, local 21.6sec faster than the real race winner time kinda sounds like i woulda likely won in case of 0 warps/lags and 0 practice before the event.


funny was, in quali and in race i kinda got smashed offroad by warp/lag every lap in almost the same curve, basicly: every 60 seconds mikelag.exe was executed by the server or by some evil hack0r program installed by REIROM :P.
rei spectated the race and every once in a while when i gone offroad (almost every 60 seconds i guess), he wrote something like MIKE NIKE MAJOR FAIL HAHAUEAHAHUEH.
could be an addition to a funny sliders.tv video, me going offroad every lap, underlined with funny music.
at some point i realized i could magicly calculate the exact curve where the 60sec warp will smash me, so i could slow down and drive straight for a while instead of the server not getting my steering packages and just send me straight offroad or randomly left or right into a wall. i did that successfully a few times, but didnt really had the motivation to ruin my lap every time, since it wont help my race result much anyway..although, coulda got 5th in front of matic lol.
still, fastest race lap, quite lucky..

So trainwreck.

Qualy: less than a second slower than winner - 8.th out of 10? so meh...

Race: fun fun fun - crash - crap - not last - not last - fight - fight - side by side-not forcing myself - crash - doh - last - pit earlier because traffic is bad - drive - drive - fun - fun - fun - 3.rd? - fun - fuel low - did I under fuel? - I need another lap - out of fuel - facepalm - pit - realization that even if I do manage to make the same amount of laps with a full tank I will still be short of fuel - denial - anger - barganing - depression - acceptance pull off the track once I did 90% of the race.

I couldn't participate in most of races. Competition was good. The only thing I didn't like is that all tracks have too dark tarmac.

eem.. I gave up on last stint, so I could be 10s faster then. Also I had 2 idiot laps, when I tried push too hard and I lost 4s there (due to my >10s advantage). If you add time lost on 1st lap + seconds lost, when lapping then it would be less than 5s. I agree that you would be faster, but in race everything may happen, so it would have been great battle ;)

Sorry for troubling but I am pretty sure I only missed last 3 races not four as it is in final results. Unless I am forgetting some rule or other thing those results are missing my 4th place @ Rocky-Game. So it should be like this
49 (49: 0.5-0.5-6-6-12-24-dns-dns-dns)
