Aloha!

Sorry, I got disconnected from the room. Had a nakering week anyway so just left it at that.

Plenty of peeps in the races and gus hosting it seemed to handle it all without issue.

Fingers firmly crossed it stays that way for next week, (and that Matts connection holds on too!)

Nah. If I start getting too hot, I just take the suit off and race in my boxers.

I keep the helmet on of course. Safety first

How did last night go then?

 

Turns out I can't see those pictures using this Firefox at work either but work fine with IE.  Nice pictures though! Even if they aren't very flattering of me :Lol:

Everything seemed to go ok Ross although Matt had issues from the start and had to retire early because of it.

We had some good lag free racing most of the night and at one point almost a full room so I think my connection can with stand it.

Later on we had some random disconnects don't know if that was down to the maintenance or my connection?

Tonight's the night, karting is back :D

 

Don't forget, add gus to your friends list to join in as we're trying a private lobby tonight.


To join a Private Lobby...

1. Go into GT Mode
2. Select 'Community' (from the list just under your profile pic)
3. Scroll to gus72 in the list and select him
4. Scroll down to the 'coffee cup' style icon in the list (Lounge) and you should be able to join from there.

 

Hope I don't have connection issues tonight.  Incase I do and you see me leaving the lounge, if someone could take a pic of the race results as well that'd be great :)

 

See you later on.

Won't be here next Thursday, so I'll see some of you in our quest to beat the Fins :D

EDIT: I think me an Phoenix should the same points for the London race, as we both finished on the same time

Home sooner than I thought. Just watched the replay and Yup, my one shows me in second so that's why I was confused as I didn't see the times 1st time round.

Mine also says we were both +0.033. It flicks us all around between 1st and 3rd about 3 times before it settles on mine :D

 

As Baba came back from a first lap crash, and as he isn't here next week I don't mind sticking with 3rd place points
