What a disaster from every angle. Disconnected during quali, only got one good lap in, I underfueled the car trying to pull as much out of it as I could. After the first lap I knew I had more time in it so I threw it back into max for another go, yeah... ran outta fuel.
Race time! Woohoo, feeling pacey, still quali'd mid pack (P6 or something like that). First lap was really clean, I was following along a pack of guys when something happened in turn one, some had some damage, two came together and then I was following @Meks Unseen who spun. Ok things really starting to look up from here! Started catching up to @MurphysLawl and got to around a 2 second gap. Rain was coming so I just matches his strategy and held out on the SS until we needed to pit for inters. Holy loss of grip, that was like driving on ice! I managed to stay within around 1s of murphy and we started reeling in @Jack Badman... I think he might have spun or went off track but I shortly disconnected from the lobby. I'm not sure if my wifi dropped out or my XB **** the bed. Thankfully I was able to rejoin (Joe you legend)
This is where things got ugly though, I rejoined in P4. Coming up to the fast left hander I came up behind @RoyerTheDestroyer who obviously slowed down to start letting me past, but going into the turn we made contact and my car was trashed afterwards. I was furious thinking somehow Roy turned into me. However, I watched the clip a couple times and owe him an apology, the clip shows my wheel turning right towards his car. I have no idea why I would have done that or if it was a glitch or what actually happened. After that, went into the pits, disconnected again and came home in P7. Definitely not great since I felt I had pace for a podium.
Lesson learned, restart the router and hard restart the xbox every week before the league race.
@RoyerTheDestroyer, mate I'm sorry for the contact, if you put it to the stewards I completely understand. I have my footage if you'd like to take a look, I'm not sure if you have any footage saved from the race but I'd be interested to hear your side.
Edit: Take a look at the footage for the bone head play of 2018
I was behind in 5th when this happened and I saw it, I thought it looked like you were slowing down and pulled to the side to let him past and then that’s when the contact happened looked like a normal incident on my endAll good on my end! My race was a disaster, I'm just glad to have finished with some points. As for the contact, I saw the flag and was trying my best to give you the fastest line but i froze up as the corner approached. I thought the contact was my fault and felt horrible. If you're good I'm good. Better luck, and a bit more care from me, next time?
