F1 Schumacher Equivalent
- Mar 8, 2016
Can't help ya there Craggles! But in the end it'll come down to regret.
I have been this season, but tonight I'm not sure if I should today if I'm hosting.Just to make everyone aware, I will be broadcasting tonights race from my view point. Voice chat won't be broadcast though. I intend to broadcast each time I race.
Does anyone else broadcast their racing?
I'll take that as complement as I thought 4th would be the best I could achieve here. Congrats on that pole timetime. That was mega quick. I noticed in the elite pc league that the top 3 were all bentleys and we're miles quicker than the rest of the field. God damn altitude.Well....... that was depressing!
Q: 1st..... THAT MEANS POLE POSITION PEOPLE!!! Finally, a BMW gets beat!
Really thought I wouldn't be that quick here tbh, based off my track knowledge and.... well, ability.
That said, I've put a lot of effort into this one over the last few weeks to be competitive and it paid off... and then some lol
Left it to the last minute to put it all on the line. 5 minutes to go and I headed out for a complete balls to the wall effort to at least beat the 4-hundredth gap @machwebb had over me.
Dunno how (like really, I have no idea), but I managed to gain 1sec going up-over-down the mountain. That put me in the 2:03's coming onto Conrod!:nailbiting:
Final time - 2:03.804.... Officially the fastest time across EVERY Pro league on AOR :smug:
(Pole lap on my vid starts at 12:40)
R: Best start of my season so far. No wheelspin, good traction and acceleration (Twin-Turbo FTW) and the aim of leaving T1 in the lead... Not an easy task considering I had a very Orange Macca on my right and a properly tight corner to navigate at the same time lol
Still, made it through the start, in the lead (I KNOW!) and now it was just a race of consistency, because I wasn't going to win otherwise lol
@machwebb and I were easily the fastest on pace today. We soon left the rest of the field and proceeded to have a really nice battle for the lead. It was a race of tension, that's for damn sure!
Until L10... now this is were my depression and Uber-RAGE! sets in.
Coming up to Skyline, I braked for the start of The Esses as normal, but my car hit a bump or something and I bounced around the first part of The Esses to meet a very nice Aussie by the name of Big 'F**kin' Tire Barrier... He stole a wheel from me.
There it was, me, handing a possible race win to @machwebb who was either smart or lucky enough to be far enough back to avoid my mutilation. :banghead::banghead::banghead:
Limped back to the pits.
Got lapped twice.
Stopped stream, because who wants to watch a very lapped car try to unlap itself...
Finished 11th overall.
I'm so angry at myself for screwing up so spectacularly... It's S3 Watkins Glen all over again!
I let the team down and not to mention that my points position isn't exactly brilliant, so a race win would've down wonders for both championships...
Well down to @machwebb for your first AOR win and your marvellous clairvoyance.
Nice job @o-YOUNG-DAVE-o for finishing higher than I honestly thought you would... all things considered lol
And whomever finished 3rd, well done to you!
Onto Watkins Glen then, and I WILL GET A WIN IF IT KILLS ME..... or someone else:shifty:
(I'm aware I was lagging some, so I apologise for that @machwebb. I need to think up another plan on recording my races I reckon)
Ah man, that sucks. To lose out due to the crash is one thing, but to fluff a pitstop is something you could avoid next week. Onwards!Just a fast one..
Nothing to say other than I qualified .5 sec slower than my best and in Warmup with 52L fuel I instantly were able to do it.
Started 9th and after a good start I gained from other peoples mistakes to end in 4th after lap one. Unfortunately that calamity in the chicane at the end of the lap resulted in me getting a front damage that killed my already not to high topspeed. This meant that I could compete going up-hill but lose at every straight bit. This caused me to lose 3-4 second every lap so at lap 9 (I think) I pitted only to realise that I had forgotten to setup my pit strategy, so I got some extra fuel and repaired my damage but no new tires. In the confusion I got too little fuel and I had to come in again.
So S9-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-11-10. Frustrating result, but it was really what my laptimes should give. It was just frustrating to start so well and then gradually loose it all.
Replay will be there tonight.
