Notes:
(1) It's best if all drivers can make sure they are connected before the Qualifying session as drivers on track during qualifying will not see cars that join after they are on track until they go back to the garage.
(2) Please make sure you are fully aware of the SimRacing.org.uk Rules.
(3) The AI control should be turned off so that you have control of the car at all times, including pitting. Your player file should therefore read
Autopit="0"
Force Autopit Off="1" // Forces autopit always off
No AI Control="1" // AI never has control over car
If you still finding pitting problematic, experience tells us that its less to do with positioning and more to do with approach speed. A slow approach to pit crew chief has proved most reliable.

Special Notes: Note early race start time.

So three different cars in one night if I read it all correctly. Oh dear, oh dear, and I can barely clobber a single setup together in a week. Results will be unimpressive no doubt.
I could have sworn I had participated with these cars before but turns out that was my hospital-week. Must have done some praccy in the weekend before.

Speaking of the hospital week: over 3 million seconds, aka over 50,000 minutes aka 844 hours aka 35 days aka 5 weeks (of non-smoking). And it's still tough as hell... Undecided

It is tough and it will get easier eventually.  Anyone who has been there knows how difficult it can be Dom.

One day at a time buddy  Wink it's all you can do.

Thanks guys.
For a moment there I was hoping you guys were referring to my car setup skills.  Grin

With the second month I seem to be in a new phase. The nicotine isn't much of an issue anymore. But the psychological withdrawal symptoms are insane. I'm in an outright devilishly bad mood 24/7. I sleep up to 15 (!) hours a day, I have heart palpitations, you name it. I found a forum full of people with the same experience. Generally this phase seems to last a month or two. There's one guy though who's been in it for....three and a half years  Shocked I do suspect that there must be other factors in his case. At least I hope so!
Anyway, soldiering on, both with the ex-fags and the setups.  Wink

Sorry, but I was too knackered for #3. Besides, I found out I had been using the wrong Mini 970S in practice and worse: setup.

But damn, the first two races went about a million times better than expected, especially the second.

In the first I did my classic "Oh, is it start already, wait for meeee" and ended up in P8. But in the first entry to the shortcut there was an incident and I was up to 6th. I was then chasing Tony and while I felt I was faster the difference was marginal so an overtake would have to be well planned. Eventually I managed it by having a better exit out of Copse which brought us side by side at Maggotts and I persevered there by taking the outside and profiting from the higher top speed of the Imp down Wellington Straight. My next target was Bob M in the Mini but there the difference was even smaller and an overtake even harder. I was closing in when I took Copse optimally but just when I started poking for an overtake I somehow managed to get my Imp on two wheels and continued in that stunt mode for some 150 yards! When I eventually got it back down Bob was long gone and Tony was back in front. The rest of the race was a chase and a very nice battle with Tony with three more overtakes between us. It could have gone either way but it just happened to be my turn to be in front when the chequered flag came down. Thanks for the very clean battle, Tony.

While I really liked the Imp -it felt a lot more Japanese to me than British- I didn't like the Anglia at all and was pretty sure my setup was utter crap. It definitely felt that way in the early laps. But after a strange incident where Dan and Eifelblitz had a spectacular accident while being many metres apart, I suddenly found myself in 5th place. And what's more, I found myself gaining  on positions 3 and 4, a couple of Minis driven by illustrious names such as Clive and Coyote. Even Ziu in 2nd place became involved in that same fray after a spin (I suppose). When Clive overshot Maggotts a bit I took the opportunity to get past down the straight, finding myself in a bewildering 4th spot. And that wasn't the end of the magic because in pretty much the same way I got past Coyote too. I strongly suspect Clive and Coyote to have been asleep at the wheel!

Anyway, very fun night and probably my best races so far in this community. Thank you all.

I think you give me too much credit on the points table Tony, awarding me the win in race 1?

I believe I was a messy 2nd. An easy mistake to make as Ziu was so far ahead that he was almost racing in the next season!!!  Roll Eyes
