My apoligies Paul.....
No problem Marco.


I do not mind ovals with NR2003 but I not so keen with the formula cars.

Qualification went well but in the race my tires could not take the abuse.
I lasted 30 laps before the crash which is more than I expected.

Well done Piero for the win.

See you next race


Paul

Still racing on my old PC, which sometimes was used as server. The framerate dropped a few times during off line practice.
On race day the connection to the server was lagging. My stint in practice was OK, but when I entered the grid, everyone blinked out.
Started carefully and just followed the drivers in front. My framerate was 24-26 and before each corner Bastian was gone, to pop up again in or after the corner. I knew it was going to be a long and careful race. At the end I finished one lap down. After the race checked my internetspeed, 100down/25up.

Congrats to winner Piero and the podium. Sorry for Robert and the DNFs.

Greetings, Marcel

Delighted to have had a clean race at last. Avoided the lap 1 crash and passed struggling Paul to get into second place, then by the halfway point my tires started to overheat so I fell behind Lance. In the end I started to close on him again but just ran out of time, there were major connection lags in the closing laps which made the driving rather uncomfortable at times. Nevertheless, happy to finally get on a podium again.
Grats Piero, Lance, thanks organizers.

I had the idea last week that an oval would potentially work on keyboard configuration.
So i prepared my Business PC on monday and was quite satisfied.

I tried the long runs yesterday in practice and was short from retiring. I had to drive very carefully (all in third gear) and slow to come into finish and not be hazardous.
It worked out somehow. The steering is so unsomooth with keys i had to handle 134 Celsius tire temps. So the last place was mine despite yannick who was even more in trouble with a broken engine. i retried shifting into second after the flag for the corners and worked better than in practice. I should have been faster so.
I withdraw from UKGPl then. No need to do Stardust on keys!

Congratulations to Lance and Roman for the Podium and to all those who have finished the race.
Very sorry that Robert was unable to participate in the race and for those who ran into accidents.

In qualifying I used an extreme setup that allowed me at most 2 laps and I was lucky to make a 31.58 on the second lap,
this allowed me to try the setup well for the race.

For once I get a start, I find myself alone in the front row ...
I saw Paul behind and I started pushing right away, I saw that I could take a bit of advantage and I started concentrating on the tires and engine temperatures, always being below risk levels.

I also had flag problems, I was sure my PC would be planted, the cars I found in front of me, disappeared and reappeared and it was not easy,
I thank my colleagues for the correctness and for helping me.

I'm not a lover of ovals but evidently they bring me luck but I missed the duels in Langhorne and it wasn't very funny

I am very happy instead of having recovered some points on the general classification.
Congratulations to Pedro for the leadership and thanks to the organizers :clap:

See you soon
Piero

Tire and engine temp managment.

Congratulations Piero, Doni and Roman!

As I expected, I starting in the back of the field.
I was able to follow Roman, Doni and Laurent, but noticed I could never overtake those guys without a accident.
So I switched from shifting, to the 1 gear setup and was cruising home.

Happy to finish, and with the leaderboard standing although that is largely flattered :mrgreen:
Thanks for noticing Piero.

Thank Marcel and deputy admins for hosting and organisation.
Thanks Stefan for not driving with a hangover (Happy B'Day again)

Cu next race, happy easter!

GRATS Piero, Doni and Roman!
SRY Yannick end of lap 2 I was concentrated with Paul‘s troubles. I went off the gas to be ready for preventing contact, get unstable, no chance to pay attention to your early attack, didn‘t see you.
One of my shortest race :(
