Qualifying - an okay qualifying, had an extra 2 tenths in my lap so could’ve been in P7 but had to settle on P10

Race - I had a great start and moved from
10th to 6th after turn 1, then had a nice close battle with @RT93 Axou86 and @RT93 Klaus for the first stint until I pit on lap 9 and came out of the pits with @Cinnamon Rage and @SolidOOFT, myself and Cinnamon on the softs were in the best position to claim 2nd and 3rd and I felt like that would’ve happened but I misjudged @Chris Leathers breaking point, had to avoid, still hit him, was on grass, tried to slow and prayed I wouldn’t hit someone but sadly collected Cinnamon. A poor result given 15 points were extremely achievable.

Counted my races and I could have 29 more points this season and be right in the battle for 2nd in the championship so now I know what I aim to achieve this season and hopefully I can accomplish it

Don’t be silly, and use a bit of deplomacy!!!

The game disqualified me ???? I didn’t retire voluntarily? I thought that was the end of race as indicated by the game!

i think its because of the connection issues when people leave and the cars parking in difficult areas
Yeah, but I think there is an issue aswell when a player leaves the lobby, slipstream doesn’t work anymore for anyone still in the lobby

Yeah that is a glitch that happens, doesn't happen all the time though when a player leaves. There also another glitch where if a player leaves peoples set ups can be changed to default setups, doesn't happen all the time though

Qualifying
Was decent. First run was safe (been cutting corners a lot when practicing) but a decent run. The second I pushed harder but a mistake into first chicane cost 2 tenths but I ended up 6-ish tenths. Don't think it would have changed my position, to be honest. 3rd is good.

Race
Ok start, avoiding the carnage behind me, maintained position. Did ok and gained a place after @EditedFaun3698 spun out. At the end of the first stint the tyres were going off badly and @Bayfield22 caught right up. Went into the pits and despite me telling the team at the start of the lap that I was coming in, they weren't ready. I sat there for about 5 seconds before they touched the car (and no, I didn't have a penalty). Came out behind @SolidOOFT and @Bayfield22 and a bit ahead of @Proulx2001. Eventually got a good run on @SolidOOFT and we have a really clean battle at the first chicane (he was was on slower tyres) but at the next corner @Proulx2001 lost control of his car on the grass and hit me as I went into the second chicane (see @SolidOOFT 's footage above). Had to reverse off the wall, no front wing for 3/4s of a lap and an unplanned pit-stop. Essentially, race over. Decided to fight for points and managed to get myself up to 8th. Saw the person in front was a bit over 3 seconds ahead so pushed hard in case they had a penalty and fortunately they did (6 seconds) and so did the 2 drivers in front (13 and 16 seconds) so jumped from 8th to 5th ? A good accidental recovery from a bit of a disaster race. Still, I should have been on for a podium ?

Almost forgot, my game had no race engine noise. Jeff and the turbo was there, no engine noise - made it so, so hard to know when to change gears! Wasn't my race (though @EditedFaun3698 still out-bad lucked me).

Race highlights
Will upload tonight, did some of the editing last night after the race so should get it up quicker than usual.

@EditedFaun3698 seems like you were the one not giving room. As far as i'm aware, you did the same to @Atul987 last round as well. View attachment 50745
@Dillon Katwa , think you should keep yourself out of other peoples issues, as this does not concern you! If @Atul987 or anybody has an issue with me, it’s for them to discuss.
I have no problem with anybody, which is why I put up my videos to back up my threads and conversations, but have no issues with you if you have an issue with me?

@RT93 Klaus,

I’m sorry I pulled over to you, this was an accident and not intentional, after seeing your video, I would be upset also. But from my video, I didn’t think you was that close, sorry
