@Seamas111 it was turn 2 mate, someone in a Merc I think hit me in the rear and I was taking off in style with most of the field lol

The guy did say his brakes didn’t work?

@Stephan is it possible to have a longer practice session next week? For example a 1hr practice session for tuning, then a quick 10min quali then the race. Some people can jump on at 7 for the practice or join at 8 for the race?

Logged in 3/4 through the practice race.

Saw you driving around with a cracked windscreen @Stephan . Must have been one hell of a first lap!

Turn 2 and/or the hairpin i assume.... Good reminder that you can't overestimate how early you need to brake when following another car.

Am sure T5 will pull off another great display of driving come wednesday! (y)
Hm, my windscreen was fine. Didn't have any major collisions. weird. I'm sure we'll rock and be the ones sliding around the track in the most stylish, safe and respectful fashion! :)

There were some cars flying ahead of my in the first racing lap. Think @VoodooChild also had some serious airtime!

I'm not sure I will have the time to do that, there are real life things I have to take care of each evening. But feel free to host an additional practice-practice before!

I can set up a practice session before today's practice race. At about 7PM UK time or shortly after that.

Cheers guys, I just wanted to do some online setup work to try and make the car more stable before tomorrow’s race, and I thought going forward an hour at 7 on Monday’s before the practice race fitted in nicely. You can logon and tune the car then try it out in the race afterwards.

I will be on later about 7, will keep an eye out for a lobby.

The car, track, weather, racing line, braking, 4 wheel slides is a struggle for me.... I have very low expectations for tomorrow.

Same as me. I'm going back to beginning with my setup and see if I can improve from what I have already

Sorry I have to skip tonight for the same reason @Happyal27 cited. Puts sadly a dent in my pursuit for top 5 season finish

Life 1st @Stephan ! @VoodooChild can host but if someone from the UK has a monster connection it might be preferred. If at all possible I would like to have a short practice to ensure no issues.

Yeah a 10min practice before quali sounds like a good idea.

Got wrist issues today from MTB’ing so not sure how long I will last but will give it a go.

Aiming for top 10 in a race and in championship... Be nice to get to tier 4 next time and work up the tiers.

I got my wheel back today so my feeling on track is much better, lap times have dropped but no where near the 49.4 @Captain Slow did in a lobby.

10 min practice for sure, should be enough time to know if we have an issue. Also double check your windows updates.

Did a 1:38.8 with VR in Audi but can't use VR when more than 5 people in lobby :( More than a second slower with a monitor. Tried the Lambo and it's in fact a lot faster than my Audi.

1.38? Man, fastest I have been was a 40.8. And that felt like the max I could get out of the bloody Aston in race trim. Now I am curious how tonight’s race is going to unfold.

Wiht 10 minutes practice, does that mean the lobby starts at 19:50.
