Well last night was very interesting. Before the start I knew I had to either get pole and get 3rd place or better in the race or not get pole and I had to get 2nd or better. I was very nervous as I never been in a championship fight before. I put in a good lap which got me 3rd on the grid. The start was a big mess as my brakes were seriously cold and it caught out @HoonigaN96 who hit me and he got damage from that. Later on I locked my brakes and I lost 2nd place to @The Genius. At that point I had no confidences in the car as the brakes and tyres were not up to temperature. It took me a few laps to get used to the car and at that point I was catching @The Genius and then he disconnected which was a real shame as I thought it would be a good fight for 2nd. Nothing happened until @SAkidd pitted and I took the lead and I pitted and I was back in 2nd. For some reason I had a lot of major lag spikes which one of them forced me into a wall and I had to pit for damage. Then @HoonigaN96 pitted and rejoined in front of me. While he was going for fastest lap he spun and I took 2nd and I finished in that position and I won the Driver and Constructors Championship with @HoonigaN96 :). I want to say a big thanks to @The Genius for setting up this amazing league and to everyone for taking part and I will see you all later. (y) :)

It's been an interesting championship for sure. Happy with qualifying - quite close between myself and @HoonigaN96. Lost the lead at the start - couldn't compete with the acceleration of the Toyotas. Took the widest line into Turn 1 I could, made it out unscathed and just focused on my pace. Did a simple 2 stop, but decided to pit with 6 laps to go, to go for fastest lap (just to be a bit of a killjoy I suppose haha).

I've enjoyed the championship. The race I had with Axeman at Nurburgring was fantastic. Maybe I should have joined the league a bit earlier to have a better chance of the championship, but I've still enjoyed it. :)

so was talking to @AOR Benjamin last night and he said he won a championship to which i replied "you . . . won a championship . . . well done" however i assumed it was gt3 and suddendly it dawned on me that he won the championship i was leading!!!!!.

:troll:Someone, somewhere in a higher power didn't want me to win :angelic:clearly it made my car flip at silverstone, get a cut track penalty at nurburgring(to lose the lead) and broke my internet connection at sakkitto whilst also getting me a job at tesco making me miss the final round. There are several other rwd cars and mine was the only one to have issues. I was totally not driving flat out every lap in every race breaking the car ;) Mabey when @thelivingdead69 joined to be my teamate he sabotaged my car. i'm a sore loser when things don't go my way and i blame everyone except my self. If you have been effected by any issues raised in this post then get a sense of humour or take a nap.:troll:

But seriously really enjoyed the endurance leauge in lmp1 cars. Flat out out all the time is how i like to drive. I had lots of battles this season with @UrBaNz Octane x , @thelivingdead69,@AOR Benjamin ,@The Genius and a really intense one with @SAkidd. My favourite race was le mans as i beasted it and did crazy lap a few days before quali. Worst moment was leading at silverstone with 20laps to go and a 1 minute lead when the car flipped into the pitlane and took 3 minutes to go a few hundred yards.

I am glad that people enjoyed this league. I did too. But I was a bit sad that my xbox live does not work with PCARS anymore apperently. Want to point out if I had not DSC from Sakittto nor this race I would have beated @AOR Benjamin by one point.;)
