Moderator's Report

Server replay time: 0h02m59s

Clive has a run on Piero on the Bottom Straight, and keeps the inside into South Bank. Clive has subtantial overlap before turn in, but could have backed out of it as well. Piero takes his normal racing line towards the inside apex, feeling he has the corner rights, expecting Clive to back out.

Piero felt he was the victim and Clive spun him off, but also mentioned he didn't want to have Clive penalized.

Contested Overtake: Racing Incident - The overtaking car had achieved a 50% or greater overlap but not 100% or greater at the point of turn-in and both drivers were in full control.

Natan loses the rear in the middle of Bottom Bend, and Dean can't avoid him. While Natan is trying to recover and getting off line, Billy can't avoid Natan, but all continue their races.

My apologies Marco. I lifted earlier and more than usual but it wasn't any where close to what I needed to do.

It was fun while it lasted.

same problem with pits exit , had to use s/r to join track so kept to minimum p/o's possible , my set up was wanting as a result of lack of practise ( no excuse i know ) but i'm blaming the lack of pracky for my crappy performance tonight .

Grats to the podium boys commiserations to all others who failed to get any champers  Smiley

Apologies for the problems launching T7 server & big thanks to Badblood for providing the back up.

Brands is a technical circuit &  I really struggle to get near a reasonable lap time here.

Had a similar issue with the car being placed in the hay bales part of the pit lane. Simple solution was a Shift R - when the track was clear.

Thanks for the racing.

I also was stuck in wall/bales when I entered the pitlane during qually session.   As a result, performed a shift-R so as to appear on the track.  I assumed this would be allowed due to circumstances...

I was never going to be good compared to the rest of the professional-level field,   but fairly pleased overall.  However,  could have definitely done without the offs/contact Smiley

So not a spectacular end to the season,  but not mush was really going to change from my perspective.  There again this season probably did not turn out as us less-accomplished had hoped - but that was just the way it worked out.   But,  certainly happy enough with being able to enter all the events I was able to.

I guess bonus was beating previous PB from the discarded race.

Thanks all.  Hopefully F2 will return in s27!


Cheers,
Dave.

What a race to end the season! Roll on S27! I guess this race could be compared to the Formula Ford Festival?  Tongue

If that's the case... sterling race up front. Thought I might have snuck pole with my first 32 lap, after finding a Johnny Ackerman setup to mod to the track. Having 25 practice laps showed.. this is the form I really should have brought to all the F2 races this year. Could have made it a 3-way title battle! But, I guess I am just Anthony Davidson to Jenson Button/Dan Wheldon, who both went on to win titles, while Davidson was always on the sidelines. Robert fought back for pole, with Roberto in 3rd.

The start went well; I fell in behind Robert, as I was not fully alongside before T1. My caution there was starting to bunch up the field behind me, so I tried to drive flat out after the apex to try and catch Robert, before his tyres came up to temperature. I got close at T1 the next lap, but was not confident of passing there, so braked early, as I was right on Rob's gearbox. This almost caught out Roberto, who was pushing 100% behind us, and so he darted down the inside to avoid my slowing car, and seeing that, I kept it wide on the outside to just avoid contact. Brilliant pass, given the circumstances!  Shocked

After that, I thought there was a problem with my sound only coming from one speaker Huh, and made a small error at the last corner while trying to rectify it. Perhaps being mugged for 2nd messed with my mind? Roll Eyes This dropped me a few seconds back, and it took me a few laps to get going again and start to catch up with the leading duo, now battling for the win and the title. Eventually, I got back to Roberto, trying a move after the long straight, but Roberto held the outside line well to stay in front. After a few more laps, Roberto was unlucky to go wide under pressure, touching the grass before the back straight, and thus I set off after Rob. Managed to set the fastest lap, while pulling back in to Roberto.

But Robert held firm to win the title, allowing Bernie to unlap himself on the line (to run the last lap), with me crossing the line only 1 second after. Grats to both title protagonists!  Cool

Quali went well, my second run was very good with 3 consecutive sub33 laps and so was able to beat Iestyn's laptime...and a UKGPL laprecord...

Had a solid start and decent first lap, however Iesty and RT were close behind. RT passed Iesty and started to put pressure on me. Had to drive really hard, and after 10-15 laps I had a gap of 3s. After Iestyn inherited P2 I tried to keep the gap the same, about 4-5s. Slowed before finish to give Bernie lap back, but it was rather close for comfort, as Iestyn finished 1s behind, did almost a Schumi  Shocked

The winning streak continues!  Cool

Well done Iestyn and RT, also both podiums and finishers! Thanks lapped cars for room, and thanks all for racing this season. I was glad later in the season we ran grids together. Had to win last two races, and I did, and beat Roberto, a great contender, for Grid B trophy. Also congrats to Clive for Grid A Trophy, that was very close in the end, tough luck Marco...

Also thanks to Billy and Paul for modding, cheers guys Smiley

Grats...yet again!...to Robert on a sterling drive for the win!  You're just unstoppable.  Anyone here up on voodoo?  Smiley

Splendid drive from Izzy to capture P2 and set the FTD.  Well done, amigo.

Fine job by Roberto to scoop the final podium slot.

Am I reading the championship tables correctly?  Evil(Clive)has won by a single point over Marco?  WOOOHOOO!  Dynamite finish and result for The Blue Moose!  And no thanks to me, either.  More on that later...

I got a decent lap in qualifying.  Not quite a PB but close.  Off the line, I got a good launch where Marco, directly ahead, was very slow to get away.  I veered right and slipped around him cleanly carving in front of Dean who was also slow to get away and starting his march to the back.

I took up station behind Greg.  Lap02 and a mighty shunt between Evil and Piero.  Both off with a considerable loss of positions and time.  Greg had to lift for this tangle and that allowed me to slip by him on the run down to Hawthorn.  Finished the lap in a lofty P5.  Well!

Rocket was just up ahead and edging away slightly.  Never to fear...  If the recent scripts would play out again, I would rob him later.  Wink

Greg was right on my tail to start Lap03 but fell off in Paddock to surrender some spots.  Marco took up the challenge and hounded my mercilessly for many a lap.  He had a couple of stabs at a pass but it just wasn't quite on.  I was particularly vulnerable running up the hill from Hawthorn to Westfield as I'd geared the BT23 to make this stretch in just one gear.  In fact, I only used gears 2 through 4 once I got rolling off the grid.  Ever the lazy one.  Smiley

Ronnie must have had a few 'moments' as the gap to him was suddenly halved and he was well in sight.  I monitored my pit board closely for developments noting the gap to Ronnie ahead and how many laps remained.  Marco was back a tick and reduced to a threat rather than a challenge.

Starting Lap09, it looked like Rocket was pulling a gap on me again and Marco was closing fast astern.  Lap11 and exiting South Bank to start the run along to Pilgrim's Drop, I was suddenly alone.  Marco had disappeared.  A sigh of relief...

As I finished the lap and scoped my board, I noted that Ronnie was just five seconds up the road, we were at the half-way point and...and...  HUH?  What was that?  Did...  Did I see Evil's name on my board?  Nah...  Must have been seeing things...

Lap13, Ronnie still five seconds ahead, a Mercaldo shown behind me...yea, I was seeing things...and rounding Druids, a screen freeze with the Cosworth FVA buzzing away to about 23 gajillion revolutions.  Swapped over to Windows and killed GPL with Task Manager.  A good p5 up the spout.  Sad

Only later in checking the posted results and downloading the server replay did I twig to what was really going on behind me.  On Lap08, I had no idea whatsoever that Clive had passed Marco to take over p6 directly behind me.  All I saw was this green car dancing about in my mirrors and giving me a hard time.  Finishing one lap, I saw this green car pasted all over my tail but it went wide onto the grass verge on the left and fell back.  A green Brabham with a gold stripe looks pretty much like a green Matra with a blue stripe at speed.  If I'd only known, I would have gladly pulled aside for Clive, our defacto leader of The Blue Moose.  I'm so relieved to learn that he recovered to place well enough to capture the F2 crown.  PHEW!
