Its a shame the net keeps kicking some players out at the start of some of the races. Hopefully the aus server will be up and running before the next season..
Please - if you think you wont race on any given week let me know as i might be able to get another driver to fill in for you.
Stared of well and about 4 or 5 laps in hit the wall and watched Gazz go flying past. Got going again and then had 3 penalties and 1 more crash losing more time. I was on a 1 pit strategy here and just made it across the line with zero fuel on the gauge. To my suprise Gazzaroon went into the pits on the last lap and i managed a win. i had settled for second Gazz.
Race 2: Silverstone,
I had a shocker here. Spun twice and a pnlty saw me finish 6th and 54 seconds behind the winner. Well done Muzz & Gazz.
Well done to Mic on 3rd place & Ausmav on 4th & Ausroman on 5th.
Next two tracks are MONTREAL & INDIANAPOLIS so get practicing all.
Good luck next week all.

Great racing all,
Got booted out at the start of Race1 at Monaco and couldn't re-join, Well done to ReeceRules for yet another race win !!! Bad luck Gaz you would have won if not for your last lap pit stop !!!
Race2 at Silverstone was an excellent race, battling with Gaz for the entire race. Gaz getting the upper hand due to his 7.0 sec pit stop versus my 7.7 sec stop, that was enough for Gaz to hold on to the lead for rest of the race. Well Done Gaz !!! (***** your fast now mate).
Look forward to next week at Montreal & Indy (Draft time lads!!!)
Race ya later

It was a good nights racing sorry to here about the net drop outs . In fact i am looking at changing as i am only on ADSL and I'm looking to upgrade to adsl 2 so i hope i don't have similar problems.
But to the races yes have been practising reece started towards the back at Monte carlo and decided to start carefully and try to get into a rythym started passing others as they were either penalised or had accidents. I could then see reece ahead and chased for a couple of laps and then as i came to the end of pit straight I saw reece had hit the wall I too then clipped the wall just ahead of him. I thought we had got going at about the same time and was expecting him to pass but he didn't and I seemed to pull away started to short shift to try to one stop. When I came up to the pit entrance I miss took the 1 as meaning I had another lap to go instead of me being on the last lap and I pitted letting reece back through to win. As soon as I exited the pits,to my surprise, I finished and realised what I had done felt a bloody idiot .What a laugh!
Silverstone again started towards the back and just concentrated on good lines and no penalties followed muzz for a few laps finally caught up to his gearbox and the fun began it was a great fight both pit stops were at the same time and the second one I entered first and nailed the stop which gave me the break to stay ahead.
Sorry to here about others problems but keep trying and practising and you will only get better it's great fun racing you guys so look forward to seeing you all out there next week.

Another great night of racing all,
I think daylight savings caught out a few of you last night as there were only 5 racers in at the start of race 1 !!!
Race 1 at Montreal: I got kicked out at the start of the race and had to do a late join, but luckily i managed to latch onto the back of the pack a got some good drafts from other drivers to get myself back up to 2nd place behind Reece. I was gradually catching Reece by 0.1 - 0.2 seconds per lap and got on to the back of his gearbox with 2 laps to go, then completed my second stop and battled with Reece for the whole last lap only to get a penalty at the last chicane !!! ***** !!! Awesome racing Reece, WELL DONE, i nearly caught you !!!
Race 2 at Indy: WHAT A RACE !!!, Reece and i had a monumental battle for the entire race, both pitting on different laps and rejoining at roughly the same spot on track. Gazzaroon was also rapidly catching both of us ! I pitted one lap earlier than Reece (1st and 2nd stops) then got a good draft from Rossa on the penultimate lap which gave me enough of a gap to stay ahead of Reece when he came out of the pits to take the race win !!!
Everyone is improving dramatically with lap times/consistency etc.
Keep practicing all, Magny Cours & Hockenhiem next week !!!
Race you later.

Sorry to those who are in other states that dont have daylight savings and missed the start of the first race. i didnt realise till it was to late.
Well done to Muzz73 on a race win at Indy and Rossa on second place. I have a few changes already for next season which will make two stops compulsary and a few other ideas which i will run past you all towards the end of the season to get some feed back.
Once again there was some awsesome racing looking forward to next week.
Next two tracks will be MAGNYCOURS and HOCKENHEIM.
Anyone who wants some help improving your lap times send me a message and i will try to help with some tips, Gave Gazzaroon some tips and now i can bearly beat him LOL.

Was a great round on Monday, congrats to Reece and Muzz for their wins.
First race was a little bit of a struggle, and i stuffed my pit stop haha. But the second was very interesting. I had an absolutely terrible start and was in 8th for many laps until everyone started their pit stops, so i knew this was my chance to catch up. I don't know how, but i was the person who managed to stay out the longest out of everyone so i was first for like 1 lap haha. many laps later i see Muzz right behind me after he took his pit stop.....and then soon after that i have Reece to worry about behind me as well......man i was a goner haha. After Muzz got by me i only focused on Reece because i know too much pressure from behind makes me stuff up haha......and trust me i was very nervous on the last lap, especially when i almost spun *gulp*.
And in response to Reece's post.......***** YOU!!!!! haha. 1 pit stop allowance is the only chance i have against you guys..Point in case, last night lol

I can see where your coming from Reece and don't have a problem with compulsory 2 stops and rossa au i to at the beginning was one stopping but if you do run out of fuel the rebirth process is quicker than pit stop and therfore i feel it is a bit unfair unless you say that a phantom stop means you did not finish and therfore no points. this might make you think a bit more about trying.
What other ideas do you have Reece.
Good racing last Monday guys Reece and Muzz where just to good on the night and congrats to Rossa for his second place car must run on the smell of an oily rag .
cant wait till next monday
Keep pushing guys
