Quali
ok so leading up to this race i wasnt confident at all....i didnt know the track as much as i wanted to, and was even quite a bit off the laptimes i was doing in my test on the weekend, but it didnt seem to matter.

Race1
well. probably the most borin 20min ever. crap track, and cruise control. very very very booorrinngg....my setup was a bit unstable, and in one corner i wasnt concentrating and slipped of the track and spun. luckily no harm done.

Race2
fairly normal race i think. apart from some real dangerous driving....but anyways, nice 1st few corners by everyone, pretty clean, even tho there were still overtakings going on.....when i cam up to overtake michel, i was not very happy coz leading up to that incident, i gave him so much respect and space when he was driving all over the road and making mistakes. then i get next to him and he almost takes me out into the pit wall. sorry michel, but i dont see how driving like this can be tolerated, so i had to submit to the governing body. i can even post up the vid sumwhere if any1 wants to see it, i wasnt very impressed at all.

ugh anyways, after a few touches here and there, i think my instability of my setup was accentuated sumhow....in that one corner just after s1, i couldnt control the car under brakes!!! i think i spun off there 3 or 4 times....was insane.....so the ENTIRE race i took it real real easy thru there.....and a couple other braking points that couldve been fatal Razz when i came up to overtake michel again later on....i did it with extreme caution Razz even down the straight i refused to get next to him....i just stayed behind him lol....i cant even rem how i got him, but watever....i was just messing around after that, and even tested later on in the race to feel wat laptimes i could do by pushing a little bit....as u can see by the fastest lap in 3rd to last lap Razz

Overall
great weekend result for me. maximum points.....after missing an entire zanvoort event, i hafta make those lost points up fast....

Race1

i had a bad start and after a couple of corners i could overtake frank because he missed a corner and went in the grass. But i think he was mad en followed me and by the next corner he tipped me a little so i spun...man Frank u do that a lot..i saw that in other races...keep u head cool after a crash....i believe ivan crashed into me and i almost lost everything on the car...and ivan had nothing????...so after a half lap my race was over.

Race2

Start on pole...i had a good start but adam had a better one and after the first corner stefan could overtake me to.
Adam went wide and i could overtake him easily. A couple of laps later stef made a mistake and he had to pit.....damn i was first!!!
Then Zaahir came behind me...i know he was faster but he had to overtake me.
On the straight we had some contact but it was nothing special...but our friend Zaahir was not amused..hehe pussy!!...After two laps fighting he could overtake me...applaus!!
After my pitstop stef was 3 sec behind me...but the gap was increasing so i thought he was cripple....hehe....so i could stay second and after some boring laps i spun two times..but i had a large gap to number 3...so i was save.

Conclusion

its very frustrating that i was knocked out by a driver who is not official and is not driving for points. But oke i was not lucky ivan crashed into me...because if he dont i could rejoin the race. so no claim to the governing body Crying or Very sad
About the Zaahir incident...common Zaahir we had a decent fight and there was some contact...but thats racing!!!!....

Race One
Started 2nd, cruised through unspectacularly to finish 2nd.

Race Two
Got from 6th to 1st after three corners and pulled out a 10 second lead. Completely lost my concentration (was half-watching TV whilst racing) and lost my front wing in a wall. Pitted, fuelled up until the finish, so I had a 35 minute stint with gradually dying tyres and a damaged front suspension that horribly slowed my pace. I still could have got 2nd perhaps, but I made two or three bad mistakes before Michel's pit, so he came out 2-3 seconds ahead. 3rd place.


Race 1 video will be done tonight, Race 2 tomorrow.

First you say that I'm an idiot for tipping you over, and then you write that Zaahir should be cool if there is some contact, because it's racing.
Well I dare you to find in the first race report where rFactor reported contact between us Smile. I always keep my head cool after a crash, which other races have you seen that I do the same thing?

Either way, race 1 wasn't too bad, I spun and a couple of guys came past. Then I was back in the pack and I came really close to Michel and he spun, I wasn't sure if I touched him (ha), but if I did it was only very slightly (ha). Turns out I didn't touch (ha, this post is so going to be used in court if I ever become a pedophile) him.
Then I just kept on racing, overtook a few people and that was the race.

In the second race I started with wet rain tyres (Zaahir dared me) and yeah they might look the same, but they have no grip. After two laps went into the pits and got a full tank so I could complete the res tof the race. I started gaining on the people in front of me and ended up taking over a few people with the last one being Hugo N. A lap after I overtook him, my tyres finally started to give away, and I spun in a not so dangerous corner. I managed to stay in front of Hugo, who must've spun as well somewhere, and just kept cruising around the track, when suddenly in the first corner my engine explodes, without warning whatsoever... Oh well Smile.

Anyway, if unofficial drivers aren't welcome in the series just tell me, and I won't show up again.

Mmm, well, see what my vid shows. I think it was just unlucky for Michel.
And just because you don't have a team, you're still racing for your own points, so I'd say you should keep racing with us, if you can join a team aswell then that's cool (but I like the HOWC test car).
