Don’t think I’ll end my DNF streak here lol
First time I've done a League race here, that's probably going to be a trend I'll start as well

What a **** show that was!
Accidentally turned off my xbox during quali and only got back into the session just before the race started, my wheel then wasn't connected at the start of the formation lap, so I had 1 lap to get that sorted, and only got it working as the grid was forming. Then about 6 laps in I started getting screen freezes as i was starting to think I could do alright and get decent points, only for the last screen freeze to unfreeze with me in the barriers.
don't think my luck could have got worse over the last 3 races!

Obviously I’ll post my highlights up tomorrow but that was a weird race.

Got an illegal overtake on @okaui despite it being a Toro Rosso on my left (not disputing I slightly cut the corner, just wanted to avoid damage). I let two cars pay but no sign of Okaui. 5 second stop and go.

Kept it clean for the rest but later caught up to @KGaacuu96 who clipped the wall and bounced back into the track and unluckily into me. Had to pit for a second time (not planned) though locked/messed up my entry into the pits and had to practically start from 0mph. @KGaacuu96 got ahead because of this but let me past again afterwards (cheers, man).

Had to run ultras till the end but @Jack_w, you’re killing me man :cry::ROFLMAO: Second race in a row I catch up and can’t get passed. I knew you had time penalties so knew if I stayed behind I would still beat you (had no penalties myself). Got some wing damage as you were so slow through some of the corners - guessing your tyres had gone off a cliff near the end :unsure:

Got smacked into a bit by @Kezimodo out of the tunnel (no damage luckily). But again, I knew they had penalties so not worth fighting, so it’s all good.

Actually ran the entire race in lean and medium (with a few exceptions). Trying desperately to save my tyres.

First podium in F6 and given the weird nature of getting it, I doubt I’ll get another :ROFLMAO:

I think your car may have hit me off during one of your screen freezes :(

I think I remember that. I was right behind you guys, it's how I got passed :eek:
you know you said someone was racing their own lap at the start... that was right after the formation lap, and we were waiting for ages, right? Does that count? Was he legit ahead of everyone at the start and we were all a lap down?!

I don't think it counted. They actually started a third(?) formation lap but the game just started during it. It was super weird. Also, I kept seeing someone driving under the track (maybe the same person - will check when I make my highlights tonight). I am pretty sure I had a grandstand view of your crash (not that it's much consilation for you, sorry :cry:).

Just to make everyone aware in case nobody noticed, there was quite a few glitched and ghost cars in that race this is what the game said the finishing positions was. But @II JOKER II and @OveratedLama will be removed from their finishing positions as they had to leave the session because of issues. So the actual finishing order will change and most people will have moved up a position. The League table will be updated tonight :)
