Moderator's Report

Server replay time: 384s

Backo tries to outbrake Zacari, fails and goes wide, miraculously avoiding Eccles and Zacari.

This was particularly ill-advised as it was lap 1 and if there had been any contact this would have been a penalty

  • BACKO (Backo)warning — Don't be so over-ambitious on cold tyres.

Server replay time: 633s

Backo slightly cuts the previous corner to get a run on Truetom but inexplicably stays too far to the left and clips Truetom sending him into the wall. There was plenty of track space available to avoid this incident and the use of corner cutting to gain an advantage is STRICTLY prohibited.

  • BACKO (Backo)penalty — Avoidable contact with Truetom — 2 places lost

Server replay time: 870s

JonM tries an overtaking move that was far too ambitious and removes Paul968 from the track in spectacular style.

Server replay time: 930s

Bernie Lomax turns in on the racing line to find Backo on his inside and there is contact.

Backo makes the passing attempt from way too deep, Bernie had every right to the racing line as he's significantly more than a car length ahead at the turn-in.

  • BACKO (Backo)penalty — Late attempt at a pass and subsequent avoidable contact. — 2 places lost

Server replay time: 2013s

Freq & Mo are battling it out down the straight and catch Enzo as they enter Stowe.

Mo makes a late move to the left to get better entry to the corner which leads Freq to dive into his inside and into the corner too quickly and brakes too late whilst on the inside of Mo (and indeed goes very wide at the corner as a result) forcing Mo to go much wider than he anticipated and into a high speed collision with Enzo even though Enzo stayed a little wide to let the GT's through.

Freq then slows to allow Mo to re-join.

Whilst Enzo was the innocent victim in the collision with Mo, there is no excuse for the foul language directed at Mo using the in-game chat.

Even though Mo's late move invited it, it was Freq's unsucessful late braking on the attempt to pass which was the main factor in this incident. With Mo ahead and a slower car coming into the corner this was simply too risky a move.

  • Enzo (Enzo Amico)warning — Use of in-race chat is not acceptable but doubly so for abusive language.
  • Joss (FreQ)warning — There wasn't a passing move to be made here.
  • mocaution — Be careful about making late moves into a corner

Server replay time: 2880s

Zacari gets a good run on Paul968 and is 90% ahead when he starts the turn-in to find Paul968 still on the inside as they approach the apex and there is contact almost flipping Zacari over.

This is a tricky call as neither driver does very much wrong.

However, as the overtaking car, Zacari has the responsibility to pass safely. As he doesn't ever get fully ahead he could, and should have left a bit more space for Paul.

  • Zacariwarning — Leave more room when not fully ahead

What a disapointing...i had MSN on and During laps 2,3 and 4
someone was trying to talk with me (several times)
i got 9 fps while this happened. I guess ReinMan and Madd-Rip
were thinking (pribeiro is driving even bad than usual) Roll Eyes
Anyway, i had to quit, because didnt stop those low fps moments,
as the guy who was trying to talk with me, didnt stop do it Sad
Season 5 will have no much history, i believe, Porsches in front battling
for win and then the rest battling to avoid be last Lips Sealed

Damn MSN Angry

Well, that was quick! 2, maybe 3 laps. Contact, bang into wall, puncture.  Angry  Must have made 200 laps in preparation for this event.   dots  Let's be more patient, guys. 1 corner in 80 minute race doesn't make that much difference.  no

Frustrating race, lost about 10 seconds in the pits due to forgetting where the ignition was mapped to Cheesy a bit of bad driving after the stop put me down another 8 seconds or so, and to cap it all I had some lag over the s/f line, went across the line on the grass and it didn't register my lap Huh so I went from 4th to 9th.  Shame, hopefully the mods can sort the mess out Grin

Great race, lots of different cars with about 8 guys all within about 20 seconds of winning pace towards the end.  Grin

I decided to try the Lister this time since nobody else seems to like it. Suprised myself with a 1:41.6 on my first flying lap in qual, which put me in the top 6 on the grid. I had tanked it with 100L of fuel and mediums all around for the start. In retrospect I may have been able to take softs, since I ended up pitting after the fuel was down to 3L and still no sign of worn tyres after nearly 1 hour driving hard  Huh

Had lots of great battles throughout this one - too many to go into really. Great driving by everyone, including the very aware GT2 cars. I made a couple of mistakes - first running wide in the final complex when trying to lap a GT2 and ended up in the gravel, then spun it when I rejoined the tarmac  Roll Eyes  That cost me about 12 seconds.  Second mistake was not knowing where the line was for slowing down in the pits - i slowed down when I saw a line, but it turned out to be 250 metre before the correct line.  Roll Eyes  That cost me another 10 seconds or so. I finished about 27 seconds from the winner, so could have been a strong 3rd without those errors.

Clearly then, the Lister has the pace, especially if it can go a full tank of fuel on medium tyres without getting any tyres worn messages. It meant I only had to put 42L in the car at my stop, and I could have switched to softs there as well, though I didn't bother. I intend to stick with the Lister for the remainder of the season, and aim to get some better results in the remaining rounds by avoiding the silly mistakes I made this time  Grin

Congrats to Freq on a great win. Not sure what happened to Claus who seemed a bit out of sorts early in the race, and Ruskus vanished  from the server 10 minutes before the start  Huh Still, it all makes the championship battle more interesting  Cool

Well I thought Pribeiro's lag gremlins had got him again, switch MSN off next time m8! As for the race, an amazing fight with Reign man for 80 minutes, he managed to scoot off and build up a good gap and we were see-sawing during the lap but I just couldn't make any impression as I'd fuelled up for a long first stint.
After my stop I was amazed to find myself in front of him, apparantly he'd spun after his stop giving me a gap....which lasted no time at all tbh.
This meant a furious and fair fight to the flag, a few time he got along side but I managed to shut the door, and after one manouvre went wrong he graciously allowed me past to resume the fight. Thankyou very much, a very noble gesture, and very much appreciated. Although my car was sliding so much I think another few laps and you would have got me anyway. One minor gripe, some GT's were a little forceful at times, I know we're hugely slower, but is waiting for the straights a little bit too much to ask? Sometimes moving off line in a corner causes more problems. We are aware you're there just give us a bit of space too.

Once again a truly magnificent race, Reign Man.

PS sorry to Paul btw, I lost the back end. Many apologies.

Temporary results and replay available, but there will hopefully be a correction due to Zacari's problem.

My race was pretty boring really. The Saleen is so unexciting compared to the Lambo and I was nowhere near the pace of everyone else in GT. Anyway I did my thing, just stayed way out of trouble, let people pass if they wanna cause I know I'm slower, but above all just race the pace I know I'm not going to fall off at and avoid collisions. Started last on the grid by a margin and just hoped to pick up places as people inevitably went off being heros and villians and also picking up my usual massive amount of time in the pit stop. Lo and behold I finished 5th after not passing a soul from an overtake. Daft! CJ was very scary as he warped all over the place, but I can say at least once I beat him Grin Tongue, even if there was clearly something dodgy going on at his end to make him so slow and warpy.

Just a reminder to everyone that chat is not allowed during races. ONLY "pit in" and "pit out" signals are allowed. Everything else is not allowed, including "thanks" and comments about incidents. The reason is that it is very off putting for every one else in the race.

First need to apologise to Luis Branco - sorry man, I knew I was fast round Bridge and committed to pass you on the exit as I knew I'd be carrying more speed down there. Your kind "after you sir" move unfortunately meant me running into you when I panicked after seeing you slow down - sorry! At least there was only minimal time lost and no major damage to either car. :/

Great dicing with Mo for the first half of the race, really evenly matched and great fun. I felt terrible when Enzo went off, as I thought I'd done it! I didn't feel any contact but looked in my mirror and saw a Porsche upside down and immediately thought my stupid attempt to pass Mo had gone even worse by taking out a lappee.....after that I tried to pull myself together and get into a rhythm but felt awful. Embarrassed   
Feel free to copy me into the incident report Enzo/Mo, despite me not making any contact with anyone, I was very close to you both with my bodged up attempt at overtaking Mo. Very sorry if this contributed to the crash. Sad

Pitstop went a bit pants as I overfilled by almost 20L again, I've really got to get more aggressive in my pit strategy. Came out behind CJ but his net problems reappeared and managed to come home first after a late charge from Paul. Good race Paul, had me sweating at the end!

Very strange race though, as happy as I am to have somehow won my first ever Master's race, I'm under no illusions about how tough this championship is. I was very lucky to have Ruskus, Jon, and CJ all suffer problems and dissapear during the race and know I would have been fighting for a podium or 4th had this not happened. These days don't come along often, so I'll take what I can. Finally I can start feeling good after feeling awful all race Smiley

My bad on this one Simon, I forgot where all my binds were and was accidentally hitting the wrong ones for much of the race  Lips Sealed

Usually I thank people by flashing my headlights, but can't do this when other lappee's are in front of me as well, as I might be misunderstood. I usually keep to simple "thanks" or "sorry" messages though.
