First I must say I apologize to Matt and Jac on my late braking maneuver that resulted in collision in the first turn on the first lap  :banghead:   This also proved very costly for me as well given that I had my best performance yet of the season for both the Lotus and the Ginetta and my expectations for wonderful results were very much  possible.  Jac suffered the most in the Lotus and so did I by waiting as expected to do when one messes up royally.  :embarrassed:   I was just trying to do my best in the lotus later in the race and then I could not avoid Nij when he lost it as I did not want to give up my fight with Jac then.    I had a wonderful start also in the Ginetta and I had visions of disaster when I found myself in the midst of the front runners again!  So I gingerly made my way and then later my race was heavily compromised when I got hit as I entered pit road during my slow down with too much care.  I had lost it once before in pit road and I did not want to repeat it.   Any way, I had it coming given what I caused in the first race so I do not blame at all Bag for not anticipating.  I have posted the tables so please take a good look and keep me honest from giving myself extra points!  :grin: See you fellows next at Zolder.  Hopefully I can repeat there what I did at Zuhai as this has not been my best track !

Select a summer date like June and choose snow. It will snow but the track will be mostly dry.

Formula X, just keep it on the track and you're good, you don't have to keep your foot down, just go very easy through the corners.

Just wondering what car you all used to get this trophy?
Thanks

haha shit it didn't look that bad on my screen i was not expect you to still be in the corner the way you closed the gap in the last 2-3 laps :shocked:. I looked back and could not see you on track and thought shit so i pulled up.

The race i had with Nij was awesome, I think we was lapping half a second apart for most of the race. when i saw you clip the curb and get smashed i was gutted but happy at the same time lmao.  My front brakes was averaging 600 degs after 3 laps with my brake ducts was fully open. My wifes PS4 was not set up the same as my old one so it didn't record my pov :banghead:.

In the ginetta's i got swamped at the start pitted lap 2 to cover Nij off and we had a few close laps and i spun it on the curb then it was just a time trial  :sleepy:.

Same here. I really struggled to save some oversteer moments. I think it's because you don't get sop ffb on raw and the car has too little power to get tyre slip which you do get on raw ffb, so when it loses lateral grip you can only tell visually by which time It's too late. I might change my ffb settings for thus car next time...

Thumbs up to jod in the lotus race. He took a full apex on the last corner and punted me off as I was still on the outside of him. He then stopped before the line to let me win (very slowly in a very knackered car). I won't forget that. :) I'd have been ok with finishing 2nd given I was last after turn 1.

Heart was racing as I was trying to chase you down in the last few laps and not succumb to that diff glitch oddness at the same time, which I did once.

Sorry LMntr i Didnít expect you to brake as much.

Think thatís the worst race Iíve had in a long long time. I made so many mistakes.

No barney. It looked like you had the car back under control so no problem if you hadn't. I was still spinning/fighting the spin when I ended up back on the outside of the track. You know how slippery that gravel is... Still not too sure about lifting completely or putting in a bit of throttle to try and drive out of it. It's a bit random and you don't get a lot of practice at it. As said, not really complaining as I don't really have a problem with collisions like that because they happen by accident. It's only deliberate punts and pushes I have issues with. I thought you thought I wasn't there, the reverse of Dubai - I lost sight of your car. There was nothing deliberate in that.

The AI thing was just a jibe because that's what you've been doing a lot. ;)

As for opportunities to overtake I always take what presents itself and always try to give space for two cars if necessary.  I did that twice in the GT5 race on tarbz and lmntr - even though I was through I still left room. I also won't weave in braking zones and can accept being overtaken such as letting you go up the inside at turn 1 when saw you coming but will always defend fairly if applicable. If I didn't do that I wouldn't call it racing. Part of the fun. Sometimes though you can lose sight of the other car or get a twitch offline or lock the brakes etc.

Just wondered actually, do you think Dennis screwed me a bit in the Lotus race? He went off and came back onto the racing line. I was planning to go round the outside but got shoved off then span and then carnage ensued killing the race for several of us.

Didn't you say there was going to be a safety car/restart option lmntr? Several cars got mashed.

Not complaining per se because I'm guilty of many things myself in the past far worse so no barney, and figure I'm learning all the time, hence not in the steward section and hindsight being a biatch un all that... I would've waited until later instead of attacked immediately. I think he's spent a bit too much time racing AI on a low aggression level who jump out of the way. ;) Yaaa and boo etc.

At that point I didn't have control of the car, I was slipping all over the place from the grass onto the track. I could also say if you had lifted a bit at that point instead of going for the overtake right away and you would have caught me later. And the comment on racing AI on low aggression is complete BS. I would even go a step further, when you spun off the track, you were the one rejoining and causing a lot of chaos.  People are already actively trying to avoid you when driving because you just throw your car where you want and others have to brake or crash. Take the dubai race where you ruined my race by steering into me.

Yes, one must always be careful to look at the oncoming traffic before rejoining the track after having an off-road excursion.  I mentioned the safety car process several times either here or in the PSN thread and it did not appear to have enthusiasm for it judging the the few comments it generated; so it was left out of further discussions.
