No your right the first time the replay is wrong. It did the same for me round Nurburgring put shaw in the astonStrange, in the actual game it was a white bmw that caused the pile up by coming back on the racing line, however in the replay it's a unknown black RUF. Seems to be a case of misidentification, sorry Franglish.
[DOUBLEPOST=1436624830][/DOUBLEPOST]And being shunted of the track is acceptable .Qualifying Report:
Qualifying was a mixed bag for me, my final time was 0.5s slower than my PB, so I went out to have one more lap to try and better it... I crossed the line for my hot lap as the timer changed to 1:59, coming round the last turn I was 1.1s green from my 2:01.3xx, if I had went 1s quicker on my outlap I would have grabbed Pole with a possible 2:00:2xx, if only...
Starting 2nd I got off to a flyer, taking 1st into T1 then swiftly being put back to P2 before the next turn :lol: The race seemed to open up for me (in all the wrong circumstances), @George appeared to lose it going into Maggots and off he went, then @Atticus DSC'd so I was gifted 1st with a fairly sizeable gap to @Smifficle in 2nd.
Now onto the fun, I started on Softs and went in to the pits on Lap 12 planning on doing a 2 stop to stay on the Softs for the entirety of the race.
Little did I know Smifficle was planning a 1 stop as well, so on Lap 14 I royally poo'd myself when I realised he'd stayed out that long, along with @Wookie pete
So, living on the edge I decided at this point I too would do a 1 stop as I only had a 20(ish) second gap which would have put me out into 2nd if I went back in to the pits.
Let me tell you now, 16 laps on the Softs trying to maintain a gap is awful :lol:
With just over 2 laps to go and a 17s gap to Smifficle, I thought the pressure was off and I was on for an easy run home...
The game decided this was not going to be the case...
Yeah... don't think I've ever had my heart rate increase that fast whilst on my Xbox :lol: Luckily, I had mapped 'Reset Car' to 'Click RS' so I was able to recover (to an extent) BUT the gap was down to 3s and I was scared to change my camera back to Cockpit until the start of Lap 28 hahaha.
So yeah, quiet-ish race until the end with a lucky strategy call in the middle, I was just glad to get my 1st win under my belt (better late than never )
Guys who quit ( @Meireloso @George @Wookie pete @matthewsdea ) would love to hear why, seemed a few of you gave up after spinning or what not, which isn't really acceptable.
And remember, Brno will go ahead next Wednesday, 15th of July @ 8PM
