Please note, it is the responsibility of the COD to start the race. Please DO NOT press the START RACE button to give fellow drivers time to adjust strategy before we begin.

Also as a result of Stewards enquiries after Canada, please try to avoid first lap contacts; potential for desync is at it's highest at the start of a race, please try to make sure you are clean on your screen.

The only good pass is a clean one - don't take risks with your race and those of your opponent. Give them room to race.

As I already posted in the Canada thread, I can't make it to this race and the round in Austria. I'll basically be travelling around Europe over the next two weekends (as if the weeks wouldn't be stressful enough already) and will return only on the Mondays.

I wish you a lot of fun and clean racing. :)

I’m running a bit late, could we hold off for like 10 mins? Computer is on so I can still join mid Q if not

Was hoping for a good result here in Baku after a P4 Qualy.
But Lap 1 as always was a total desaster.
WP for the guy who divebombed me in Turn 2 on Lap 1. Cant be real

So disappointed - had a bit of practice around here which I haven't been able to do much of recently.

Set a banker lap in quali that put me P9 - going for my second run and was blocked by @ChokDK being driven by AI (I presume he had retired from the session) so had to back down.

Had a good start to the race, made it up to 7th but some people were being too cautious and braking for corners that don't exist (between t14 and t15) - caught me by surprise and almost had @Neil Bywater run into the back of me but he must have god like reactions and managed to avoid me.

I think it was lap 2 or 3 that @Neil Bywater & I had a great run on a couple of cars ahead on the start finish straight which would have put me P5 I think? I had the moves completed, however I was taken out by @Poetic D going into T1. Not sure what happened from his point of view, so i'll wait to hear his side, but it seemed like he was on the brakes far too late and went straight on at T1.

Was expecting a non points finish here, after missing qualifying - apologies for that, the parents had been away for a few days and got back home with KFC at quarter to 8!

I got away okay and kept it nice and tidy to eventually find myself in 4th thanks to others’ misfortunes. However I was really struggling, ending up with Kane and Nasom right on me, with I think Neil? Or Jay catching me. I unfortunately took to much kerb and binned it however. Onward to better things and better circuits! This one is a mess

Coongrats @Kiinako, Damn! that's so annoying to crash into the wall at the lap 20/26 for a stupid mistake when you're 2nd kinda gaining time to the 1st! after the pole in Q I was so excited, unfortunately i lost the car in the first corner after the start so i had to give back to the 2nd. Had a really fair battle with @KaneJr00 at the beginning. However i'm not in race for the championship so i'm glad of my work done and i think i'm getting a lot of experience here, kinda improving my mindset race to race.
