I dont mind this track but racing around it cleanly is a pain. during the race i hope people dont do stupid divebombs into the hairpin, if so i will take note, The first part of the final sector theres a wall on the left before we turn to the right and on that part we need to leave space, during a 100% race two people in a row didn't leave my space and i hit the wall and went wide and that's my race over, i know its a big ask but around this track we need to leave a bit more space. Im not expecting a great result again sadly but ill still work hard ;)

That was an incredible race for me!

Enjoyed myself immensely, but sadly Shadowplay really didn't want to work for me, so I wasn't able to record :arghh: So gutted with that.

I had a poor qually as usual, starting in 7th I got round T1 cleanly and managed to bag 3rd place at the hairpin by a mistake someone made...
And from then on, it was really just a fight for 2nd with @matt785shimmy and what a fight it was, big props to you sir. Defiantly race of the season for me, and I look forward to some more action in the future :D

Decent race after no practice, got 2nd thanks to @Levis disconnecting. Good battle with @aMadMouse, couple of bits of contact here and there, lag being a small factor, but a good battle in the end.

A shame Levis had lost connection, we were denied another chance for a good battle after Silverstone, anyway here are the results:

Maybe someday :D.
[DOUBLEPOST=1422224074][/DOUBLEPOST] Matt you blow :D

I think that the game has decided that I can't finish more than 75% of my races. So I should be safe next few rounds.

Well quali was bad, I didn't practice much so it took time for me to understand that I could take the first corner almost flat out (realized it was possible on a pad during the race), slowest of all but started 8th with DommyG's penalty. Got through the first lap hairpin carnage and went up to 5th. Finally found my speed and was following matt and madmouse while keeping micro at bay, then came the first pitstop where I got held up by James coming in and lost about 2-3 seconds. I kept the option tyres for the second stint which allowed me to reclaim the time lost in the pits and build a solid lead over micro and dommy. But then I realized that Chicane was doing a 2-stop strategy while most of us were going for 3, so I had to push hard to make sure I would be in DRS range coming out of my final pitstop. I lost some time to mouse and matt on the 3rd stint because Iwas on the primes and they were on the option. Then coming out of my third pitstop, I rejoined in a battle between Chicane, Micro and Dommy not far away for the 4th position. I had so much trouble passing Micro because he was lagging like crazy on my screen, especially coming to the hairpin, but I managed to not get stuck that long behind him and passed him cleanly. Fortunately, he defended better against dommy and chicane which allowed me to build a comfortable gap and try to reconnect with matt and mouse, who I knew stopped 1 lap earlier and would probably have worn out tyres on the last lap. I closed the gap immensely on the last lap, but it was too late... if it wasn't for that hold up in the first pitstop, I could have been on the podium *maybe*.

Congrats iBlue and bring on the next one!

Sorry about the lagg, you was lagging a bit for me too so it must be our connection to each other ;) I could of held you for longer but i made a mistake into turn 8 which you went up my inside! ;)
