I knew I would not be competitive on this track so my plan was to be safe and consistent, and finish. All my practice had been on focused on consistent safe laps rather than speed.

With some good luck narrowly avoiding a few crashed cars early on, I managed to complete the entire race without any incidents. No damage, spins, or contact at all.

Finished 8th of 16.  :13: Really enjoyed the day night day transitions too.

There was only room for me to do the Caterham race this week and due to the late notification had no time to put in a qualifying time. Starting from the back I managed to stay out of trouble in the first few laps and got up to 6th place. Found a decent rhythm in the first 25 minutes and after my stop I tried to push a little bit further which immediately resulted in damage, had to pit again where they didn't fix my damage so ended up with 3 stops and finishing 12 due to a pit lane speeding penalty. A shame because somewhere between 6 and 8 was certainly possible.

Next week a track that I am familiar with, will try to pick up tuning for that race in the hope that you'll need a reserve to take a place. I found a step by step guide to tune the car so hope this can give me a hand. I haven't tuned the setup since back in the Grand Prix 2 days when I was like 10 years old.

The race start was probably an incidental one but when were we allowed to overtake in this situation? I waited till the start / finish line now which in the end probably was a good thing but I probably could have taken two places earlier.

I had a great first race with the GT3. Stayed out of trouble until the last lap. I was running second by 8 sec. Iím not sure who was 9th but they spun in front of me just before the village and I ended up third.
The second race was pretty boring. Had damage on the first lap and then just drove around until the end. Was on my own most of the race other than the leaders passing me.

See you next week.

A tootle around Scotland 😂

Well off the pace in this car. The front guys times were unreal, itís been a long time since Iíve been that far off the pace in any racing Iíve done. Good job boys.

My plan was to go steady and hope to pick up places with people getting damage etc however i ended up crashing at T1 lap 2 I was slightly put off buy a car that I guess had pitted on the outlap and just come out of the pits ? God knows 😂 After getting a pit speed penalty the race generally went ok had a couple of good battles. Pretty fun race really I enjoyed having to chase people down

Glad you enjoyed it. You will find league racing is much better than public lobbies no matter what the game. Lots of people find it a bit daunting at first and get a little nervous etc but it really makes racing more enjoyable.

I might be wrong but I think you were in the yellow car I lapped in the Caterham Race. If that was you and it was your first league race Iíll give you 10/10. Top marks well done 👍

You did everything you should do ( also in qualifying ) 100 % awareness of your surroundings excellent driving. You had some very good pace.

It wonít be long before you will be mixing it at the sharp end Iím sure.

I appreciate the positive comments, I was indeed the yellow Caterham you lapped. Last week I was perhaps at times a bit too aware of my surroundings. A small disadvantage as a spare driver is that I can't really spent time to set my car up for the track and test it more as that is quite pointless if you don't race on thursday.

As in online lobby racing I've some friends on PSN that I met in online lobbies with whom I know I can race clean. Most of the times it's the question if you become the victim of 1 or 2 of the idiots that are in session.

First of all I'd like to say I enjoyed racing with you guys last night. If you have a no show again I'd love to join again

One general question: how do we threat blue flags? I took them last night as in F1 ( clear out when necessary ) instead of American ( if the leader has more pace he has to make the move ).

As my first league experience I enjoyed it, found out I have to work a bit on my consistency and spent a little more time on preparing as in strategy / tire choice / fuel level. A check how long I can make tires last would be better as I now changed them on both occasions for security. I hope I showed you guys that I can be a fair and decent addition to your league.

Enjoyed the races, clean driving once again. I was surprised with my pace in the Caterham, just seemed to click with the driving style needed.

See you next week.

Had good pace in qualifying with gt3 and managed to start at p3.  But I qualified on softs because I was simply quicker on that set of tires over one or two laps. I chose to go with hards for the race and I knew I would lack some pace but still better than if I would try to go with a set of soft untill the end I think. I struggled with the hards and had a quicker iceteaface right behind me during the majority of the race. It was very intense racing especially when we passed lmntr on each side before the second corner. Still satesfied with 4th place in the end.

Caterham: Qualified p2 behind Jac, had a good start and managed to stay first for a lap or two and then Jac passed me. I tried to keep up but ending up spinning twice instead. Wasn't quite comfortable with the car sometimes but happy with p2 at the end.
