I raced accidentally as Arf (he once used my PC to join a race and set-up a profile, for some reason GEM selected it), which I want to make clear since I was involved in several accidents. 

My first issue was that my clutch button wasn't configured on Arf's profile, so I crept fwd at the start and was black flagged.  Wasn't sure what to do so I entered the pits for and SnG but that didn't help so I decided to carry on anyways, my first race in a 55.

Apologies to Cookie, I hit him from behind into a corner, just got too close.  I then slowed to wait for him a few corners later and was rear ended, I should have stuck my hand up but this button wasn't configured either.  After a while I caught Doni, I wasn't surprised to see the defensive lines and after a while I spun him round a tight corner.

I struggled on the brakes and need to work on that, consequently I had several offs into T1 which put me back behind Doni, after a few laps I was back with him.  A lap or 2 later I had no brakes left and rocketed past down the banking, somehow I think I managed to avoid him, but was then joined by a couple of red cars.  I carried on for a few laps then retired after venturing into the trees!  Had some fun, I like the mod, guessing the Merc is the best car!

Cheers, Bob

That explains why Arf was so blindingly quick on some laps and vanished on others!! lol

The 55's are a whole new world in GPL, with the horrendous brake fade indicated by that light on the dashboard that goes red far too quickly, usually just before a trip into the scenery.

I had the advantage of the trial run last week with Axel and I was able to tweak my Connaught setup to make it a little driveable/quicker to battle with all those Mercs and Lancias.  Roll Eyes The gearing on a 4 speed box with a weedy engine made the start a joke and I was passed by two Mercs whilst Axel shot away in the lead.
Once I was up and running things were OK and I could live with the pace until cars I made an early mistake and ran wide. But suddenly cars were throwing themselves into the woodland on every bend and I was given a free pass into the lead??!! I kept going and soon had a healthy lead as cars had problems behind.
I started pushing to see if I could go sub 2:00 in the Connaught and when I managed it I had almost destroyed the rear tyres and the brakes   Shocked. I decided to back off for a couple of laps to cool things down and relaxed a little too much. My setup relied upon attacking the corners and when I tried to coast around T1 it all went horribly wrong and I understeered straight into the grass bank.

I had to do a SnG and that allowed Axel and his damned quick Lancia to pass me and take the win. Undecided

I find that too.  I have to help it into corners with a good boot-full but when I'm in "easy" mode I forget that bit.  Messed up a couple of races in that fashion.
