I won't be racing as I will be going back to Hungary on the weekend.

As there will be no races after, just would like to take a moment and thank you all for the great atmosphere and great battles I had with you on the last few races. (I joined the league in Singapore)
You guys are fantastic!

Hopefully see you all in the next season!

You can't, it's automatic depending on your activity in the forum


Sorry about me raging that much yesterday, I had enough. So many incidents during the race, and I was probably the cause of those incidents half of the time, I don't know. Still, it pushed me to the limit of sanity and anger, which made me retire when I couldn't even get the fastest time (though very close to it 3 times, but got impeded doing so -.-)


24:40 = I spun when trying to avoid @Thezz who lost grip aswell. Maybe I should have lifted more off the throttle. That front wing damage got me to be slow in most part of the track, so sorry @Breakdown and @Skinner if we collided. I guess that was the reason

26:12 = I had the best fucking bullshit 5 seconds stop-go penalty ever. Like what advantage did I gain there you stupid retarded steward ???

33:20 = Got hit in the rear, but @Breakdown told me the lag was at fault.

35:10 = Got hit in the rear again in the same spot

51:50 = I was catching up to @Skinner really fast, then @Graham Thomson came out of the pits, made contact with @Skinner and then we collided at full speed. Earning me another pit stop for a change of front wing

59:15 = Coming in the last corner, @Graham Thomson was reversing in the middle of the track and I had nowhere to go (I could've gone to the far left but would have lost the car. To the right, I would have done a massive corner cut and could have had either 10 seconds penalty, stop-go, drive through or disqualification on the spot. Had this happen to me once)

I then put ultrasofts on, and tried to get the fastest lap of the race, but caught up to the battle between @LungVika and @return which prevented me from doing so, and in the end, I got mad and just retired.

This race was just a pure nightmare that sums up pretty much the rest of the season for me. I know I've been a fucking whining piece of **** pain in the ass most of the time, but that's my character. I hate spending hundreds of hours practicing to see the result being either crashes, DNF or whatever. Which means, time wasted and thrown out the window.

Compared to the rest of the top 10 in the standings, I made next to no progress in terms of consistency, pace or accuracy during the course of the whole season. My only highlight would be Brazil, but then again, it was down to sheer luck only and good strategy call. Luck because I still kept the pit service before @Fersiphion in spite of his kamikaze dive attack (I love that name, Gotenks would be jealous :p). Because @return got trolled by Jeff (you can check your MFD to swap the next set of tyres before entering the pitlane though !), and @yobbo grabbing a bullshit DSQ in the pit exit.

All in all, thank you @yobbo for some good advice you gave me, which helped in Brazil (kinda). Sorry @Fersiphion for you were **** last season and the best DNF driver ever (even got an AOR award for that) but you improved and wrecked me in the end.

And congratulations to @Sabba7h who was consistent all throughout the season and that showed at the end how he was fighting for the lead in almost every races.

Oh, and **** you @Dobby for cheating your WDC win with the racing line and corner cutting ;) But still nice to have you present at every single races with me as a coordinator and you as a host.

If all of you stay for the next season, half of the field will be promoted to higher tiers, just don't **** up your time trial evaluations, and you'll be fine

I had asked because there are people with titles like "Split 4 Champion" (see: SMEAJ) and "Slowest GT3 Driver Ever" so I thought maybe it's something I can edit

And thanks btw. You have improved massively as well, you've scored more points this season than your last two combined. You're going to do better next season
