Moderator's Report

Lap 1: L.Wong rear ends M.Portman coming into the Loop and spins off. M.Portman continues on.

With this being a lap 1 incident I have increased what would otherwise have been a 2 place penalty to 3 places. It's important to be extra careful on the first lap with a full fuel load and cold tyres, and the outcome could easily have been much worse than it was.

  • Luci Wongpenalty — Rear ending M. Porman — 3 places lost


Lap 13 M.Portman shift-R's but does not Stop & Go. This does not change the results since Martin retired with 11 laps remaining.

  • Martin Portman — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 15: Ford24v bad pit entry, leading to a collision with A.Nevill.

A surprisingly protracted loss of control by Graham, which he stated was caused by accidentally pressing the wrong button and having to drive from the F10 view.

Looking at the replay without this explanation it would look very much like Graham was attempting to beat Andy into the pits by cutting the course. I've given Graham the benefit of the doubt on cutting the course, but nevertheless there was plenty of opportunity to avoid the pitlane entrance after losing control, and continue for another lap. The loss of control was not the problem, but the method of attempted recovery was a very poor choice, and certainly not one you could get away with in real life.


Lap 15: M.Portman puts a wheel on the grass & loses control, colliding with L.Wong. Racing incident.

Moderator's Report

Lap 1 Pile-up. K.Hammett passes J.Ball just after the start line, moves left and clips him.

This penalty was increased from 2 to 3 places because it was on the first lap. The most dangerous part of the race is the start because of the close proximity of so many other cars. It's particularly important to hold your line if you are not absolutely sure there is clean air beside you.

  • Kev Hammettpenalty — Side contact with J. Ball — 3 places lost


K.Saxena - couldn't have avoided J.Ball, but diving to the left at the start was extremely an extremely dangerous move and could potentially have caused exactly the kind of incident that did in fact happen to K.Hammett & J.Ball.

Penalty increased from 2 to 3 places because it was at the start, but decreased by 2 because it didn't actually cause an incident.

  • Karan Saxenapenalty — Over ambitious overtake — 1 place lost


K.Saxena takes a Shift-R, no SG taken. This was a non-fault Shift-R, so no penalty is applied.


Lap 1 S.Gymer moves inside K.Lawrie at the Peralta, but drifts wide into K.Lawrie.

This would have been a 3 place penalty since cold tyres and a heavy fuel load probably contributed to Simon running wide, but there was quite a bit of warp involved, and it's pretty clear that Simon had already backed off after realising he'd entered the corner too fast.


Lap 2 K. Saxena - contact with C. Griffin at the Esses.

KS went for a gap that wasn't really there as C.Griffin took the racing line through a late apex corner. Don't just lunge for the pass the moment you catch up to another car, plan your attack at a safe passing point.

C.Griffin takes a Shift-R without a SG. This was a non-fault Shift-R, so no penalty is applied.

  • Karan Saxenapenalty — Rear ending C. Griffin — 2 places lost


Lap 2 M.Spliph - contact with D.Allan at the Peralta.

D.Allen took the racing line into the corner with M.Spliph right behind, and should have left more room, but M.Spliph really was too far back to justifiably claim the inside line at the turn-in point, and should have tucked in behind.

M.Spliph then collides with K.Hammett as he heads for the pits. Considering the flames in his rear view mirrors would have made it difficult to see behind, I'll put this down as a racing incident.


lap 3 C.Griffin loses control & slides into the path of K.Hammett. Racing incident.


Lap4 K.Saxena looses it at T1 and collects L.Wong. Racing incident.


Lap9 K.Lawrie contact with M.Spliph at the Esses. This was a poor place to attempt a pass, but there was a pretty big warp after K.Lawrie had already backed off. Considering the warp involved and that M.Spliph did nothing wrong he was entitled to a no fault shift-R.


Lap13 L.Wong pitstops for 23 seconds. Not only was this 2 seconds short, it was 3 laps too late. L.Wong attempted to pit on lap 12 too, but missed the entry. Pitstops are part of the race, and it's just as important to practice this as the start and lapping the circuit. A fast lap may gain you a second, but a poor pitstop will lose you ten! Paul Harrington's GPLWait utility will help you time your stops better if you're not already using it.

  • Luci Wong — Short stop, too late — 15.000 seconds added


This race involved several instances of poor judgement and impatience when approaching an incident. Please make sure you take care and slow down if necessary to avoid spinning cars. You'll lose alot less time by slowing down a bit than being hit by an out of control car.

Moderator's Report

Once again alot of incidents in the first couple of laps, costing a great deal of time to those involved, but those incidents involved far fewer drivers. Definitely a big improvement on Mexico! A race is not won on the first lap, as Simon Gymer's excellent result clearly shows.

Congratulations to Simon Gymer for a well deserved win.


Lap 1 M.Spliph pulls over at the start towards G.Houghton.

M.Spliph gets it a bit sideways at the start forcing Ford24v to brake. I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it wasn't a deliberate blocking move, just a momentary loss of control, but a move just like this caused the startline pile-up at Mexico. The start is the most dangerous part of the race, and it's important that you practice getting off the line cleanly. A fast lap may gain you a second, but a crash will cost you far more.


Lap 1 V.Kwiker cuts the course at the start by ducking into the pitlane. It doesn't gain him any places, but potentially it could have been very advantageous if there had been an incident at the start. The rules do not mention this type of move specifically, but it is certainly not something you could get away with in real life, and is not in keeping with the sporting nature of the league.


Lap 1: T.Whiting turns in to N.Wood at T1, spinning Tim out. This wasn't an ambitious passing attempt by Neil, but Tim was clearly ahead into the corner and Neil should have tucked in behind rather than try to maintain a bad position. Tim and R.Maiph were well over to the left into the braking zone, but it looks like Tim was trying to leave room for Ralph and turned in to Neil. In Tim's defence Neil was in his blind spot, but nevertheless TW put himself in a bad position by leaving the door open into T1, and should have stayed further over to the right to cover the inside line. Having said that, inevitably the car behind has a much better view of the gap between them, and must therefore take the burden of responsibility for making sure they don't collide.

For a Lap 1 incident, this would have been a 3 place penalty to NW, but is mitigated by Tim's own lack of caution, and Neil's stop & go at the end of lap 2.


Lap 1 M.Portman nudges D.Allen into V.Kwiker. A sudden slow-down of the cars ahead (caused by T.Whiting/N.Wood's incident) caught Martin by surprise because he was only able to see 4 cars ahead. Racing incident.


Lap 1: D.Allan rearends C.Griffin after missing his braking point. DA shift-R'd and took a stop & go on lap 3 after missing the pit entrance on lap 2.

  • Dave Allanpenalty — Rear ending C. Griffin — 3 places lost


Lap 2: K.Saxena rejoins after a spin but collides with C.Griffin. Karan waited for several cars to pass and it was unfortunate that Clive came around the corner just as Karan started to move. It may have been better to reverse onto the grass & get the car pointing the right way before rejoining though. Racing incident.


Lap 2: C.Griffin collides with E.Urbanski who had just shift-R'd after blowing his engine. Unfortunately the reset point at the start of the straight is on the racing line, but if you find yourself in this position, stay over to one side of the track (off the racing line) until you are up to speed.

Mitigated from a 3 place penalty to E.Urbanski because of the unfortunate reset point.


Lap 3: P.Adams rejoins after spinning off, D.Allen takes to the grass to avoid PA and spins. PA waits for DA. Racing incident.


Lap 8: T.Whiting turns in towards G.Houghton as GH passes, and is unfortunately spun out by a warp from Graham's car. Racing Incident, but bear warp in mind if you go side-by-side into a corner, it's fairly predictable, so make sure you leave room for this.


Lap 16: V.Kwiker and T.Whiting come together at T1. Vinny should have left room rather than just taking the racing line, and clearly knew Tim was attempting to pass. Since Vinny took a stop & go, and given the warp involved, I'll put this down as a racing incident, but please make sure you know where the cars around you are when you turn in, and leave room if you aren't sure. If you are attempting a pass, try to make sure your opponent can see you before you move in, and bear in mind that a little warp in the corners is quite common, so leave as much room as you can.


Lap 22: J.Ball rear ends D.Allen as Dave slows unexpectedly. Racing incident.


Lap 23: D.Jones spectacularly rearends K.Lawrie as Derek pulls out to pass on the straight. This would have been an excellent draughting pass by DJ, but he just left it a little too late before pulling out. Keith was entitled to a non-fault shift-R here and took it.

  • Derek Jonespenalty — Rear ending K. Kawrie — 2 places lost

Moderator's Report

Lap 7

R.Maiph collides with T.Whiting's crashed car at the gasworks hairpin.

Racing Incident.


Lap 12

P.Adams loses it through Massenet (T2) and unfortunately collects K.Saxena. Both drivers reset their cars and Karan is entitled to a non-fault shift-R and takes it. Unfortunately it isn't clear whether Paul did a SnG so I must assume he did.

Racing incident.


Lap 21

Chicane - K.Lawrie collides with K.Saxena's spinning car after the chicane.

Racing incident.


Lap 25

K.Saxena Shift-R's at Tabac after spinning out at the chicane, but no SnG was done.

  • Karan Saxena — Failing to Stop and Go after Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 29

K Saxena rearends P.Adams as they exit Portier. Both cars shift-R'd, and Karan waited for Paul to pass before continuing. Paul was entitles to a non-fault shift-R and took it.

K.Saxena - 0 place penalty (Rear End Shunt)

  • Karan Saxenapenalty — Rear ending P. Adams — 0 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


  • Karan Saxena — Shift-R on last lap (no chance to stop and go) — 5.000 seconds added


Lap 1

K.Saxena makes a daring move around the outside of K.Lawrie into T1, but turns in early before completing the pass and hits K.Lawrie, blocking the track for a large number of drivers following.

Unfortunately no one replay is able to show the complete pileup, so any resulting crashes will be given the benefit of the doubt and assumed to be racing incidents.

  • Karan Saxenapenalty — Side by side contact on lap 1 — 3 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 1

M.Portman is rearended by V.Kwicker who appears to have been warping badly & suddenly appears very close to Martin's Cooper. Martin is entitled to a non-fault shift-R and takes it.

Racing (warp) incident.


Lap 4

P.Adams rearends D.Allen under braking into Mirabeu. This was a minor tap which causes no real problems for either driver so I'll put it down as a racing incident.


Lap 5

T.Whiting rearends N.Wood at the station hairpin. Neil is knocked sideways but recovers immediately, and Tim waits for Neil. Some warp was involved, so I'll put this down as a racing (warp) incident.


Lap 5

P.Adams misses his braking point and rearends D.Allen under braking for T1.

  • Paul Adamspenalty — Rear ending D. Allen — 2 places lost


Lap 5

K.Saxena rearends K.Lawrie as the three cars ahead brake for the chicane but Karan continues flat out. K.Lawrie is entitled to a non-fault shift-R and takes it.

  • Karan Saxenapenalty — Rear ending K. Kawrie — 2 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 6

K.Saxena rearends P.Adams turning into Portier. Paul is knocked sideways but recovers quickly and Karan waits for Paul to continue.

  • Karan Saxenapenalty — Rear ending P. Adams — 0 places lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 6

K.Saxena hits the barrier at the exit of the gasworks hairpin and is thrown out into traffic, collecting P.Adams and T.Whiting.

Racing incident.

Moderator's Report

A great race to watch with some excellent scraps for position. Congratulations to Graham Houghton for a well deserved win.


Lap 1

D.Jones leaves his braking a little too late and rearends S.Gymer under braking for T1.

  • Derek Jonespenalty — Rear ending S. Gymer — 3 places lost


Lap 1

As he rejoins S.Gymer nudges K.Lawrie and then rearends him as they approach T2, and taking out C.Griffin in the process. K.Lawrie is entitled to a non-fault shift-R and takes it.

  • Simon Gymerpenalty — Bad rejoin plus rear ending K. Lawrie — 6 places lost


Lap 2

T.Whiting loses control in the final turn. D Jones looses control and unfortunately collides with D.Jones, R.Maiph and P.Adams.

Racing incident.


Lap 8. N.Wood leaves the pits as L.Wong pulls out to pass D.Allen into T1.

This is not a straightforward incident since both Luci and Neil could have avoided it but neither driver was completely to blame. Dave was spun out by the incident but held the racing line as he was entitled to do and did nothing wrong.

In Luci's case, although she was entitled to attempt the pass, she should have seen Woody's PO message and his car was visible before she moved out from behind Dave's Honda. Although it's very difficult in the heat of the moment, it would have been safer to tuck back in behind Dave.

However, Woody could not have known there were two cars approaching side by side until after he had left the pitlane so I can't fault his decision to rejoin, and although they were clearly visible in his mirrors once he was on the track, realistically there was neither enough time or room for him to get out of their way.

  • Luci Wongpenalty — Ambitious Overtake, mitigated by N.Wood's Bad Rejoin — 1 place lost


Lap 10

N.Wood brakes a little too late for the T4 Hairpin & knocks D.Allen sideways, but waits for him to pass before continuing.

  • Neil Woodpenalty — Rear ending D. Allen — 0 places lost


Lap 11

S.Gymer rearends P.Adams as they come to a stop in the pitlane. Unfortunately this puts S.Gymer into the haybales & he is unable to move for his stop & is retired.

Racing Incident.


Lap 12

D.Jones spins off at T1 and rejoins into the path of J.Ball causing both to spin. In Derek's defence, Jon wasn't visible in his mirrors at all and does not appear to have taken avoiding action, but nevertheless he was being lapped and should have left more room.


Lap 23

N.Wood rearends D.Allen into T3, N. Wood spins but D. Allen continues immediately.

  • Neil Woodpenalty — Rear ending D. Allen — 0 places lost


On a final note there were a few comments about blocking on the straight by driving down the centreline. This is particularly frustrating at Zandvoort because it's the only real passing opportunity. While I didn't see any specific case that would warrant a penalty, would all drivers please check the rules on this and be aware that blocking carries a 3 place penalty.

Moderator's Report

Well deserved & long overdue first UKGPL win for Karan Saxena, although unfortunately a timing error with his pitstop puts him down to 2nd place. Well done also to the majority of drivers that got through Les Combes without incident on lap 1.


Lap 1

V.Kwiker passes K.Lawrie on the inside of L'Eau Rouge exit, but Keith doesn't see him and takes the racing line, banging into Vinny's rear wheel. In Keith's defence Vinny wasn't visible in his mirrors throughout at all since they were side by side from the start, and Vinny bounced off the bank, and would probably have hit Keith even if there had been more room. This is not a clean cut incident, but although VK's pass was ambitious and he lost control temporarily, he was ahead at the time of the incident, and Keith should have left more room.

  • Keith Lawriepenalty — Side by side contact, mitigated by VK's loss of control — 1 place lost


As V.Kwiker regains control of his car after colliding with K.Lawrie, and D.Allan, who had swerved to avoid the same collision, meet in the middle & spin each other out.

Racing incident.


Lap 1

As the front of the pack approaches the Les Combes left-hander, E.Urbanski's engine lets go with R.Maiph right behind him. As Eddie slows & tries to get off the racing line, Ralph dives out from behind straight into the path of S.Gymer, spinning Ralph out. As with any other type of incident that happens ahead, if you are boxed in, slow down until you can safely get past the incident.

  • Ralph Maiphpenalty — Side by side contact — 3 places lost


As E.Urbanski attempts to stop his dead car, he loses control & veers back out into the traffic. Most drivers avoid him but unfortunately C.Griffin loses the 'left or right' gamble & tries to pass slowly on the outside as Eddie gets back off the racing line.

Racing incident.


As they approach the now backwards E.Urbanski, P.Adams correctly slows and steers around the spun car, but M.Portman doesn't and slams into the back of P.Adams. This was avoidable, and turned a minor incident into a major one.

  • Martin Portmanpenalty — Lack of care approaching an incident — 3 places lost


R.Maiph Shift-R's but doesn't SnG.

  • Ralph Maiph — Shift R without Stop and Go — 15.000 seconds added


E.Urbanski pulls away slowly with K.Lawrie right behind.

C.Griffin pulls out to pass them both, but Keith dives out into Clive's path, forcing him to swerve and lose control, crashing into Eddie and Keith.

Although Keith pulled out in front of Clive, to his credit he did leave enough room, and it was unfortunate that Clive touched the grass and lost control while avoiding him.

Both C.Griffin and K.Lawrie both could have backed off a little and saved themselves a considerable amount of time, but ultimately it was a simple loss of control.

As Keith spins across the track he collects P.Adams, who had no real chance to avoid him.

V.Kwiker backs off as soon as he sees the first car, but at this high speed section of the track there is no way he can realistically avoid P.Adam's spinning car.

Racing incident.


Lap 2

N. Wood spins out & comes to rest across the racing line. Unfortunately M.Portman just clips the stationary car & spins out. Woody does a SnG straight after.

Racing incident.


Lap 3: K.Saxena's pitstop is only 8 seconds instead of 10 for the Brabham.

Since the top three finishing positions were separated by less than 2 seconds this short stop turned out to be crucial, and unfortunately applying a time penalty will mean that Karan loses his maiden UKGPL win. Given the events of the last few laps it's very likely that Karan would not have been in a position to get past GH on the penultimate lap had he taken the full 10 seconds, but the mistake was unintentional so no extra penalty will be applied on this occasion.


Lap 9

J.Ball brakes a little too late and nudges G.Houghton at the entry to the final hairpin. GH, JB & S.Gymer were all very close throughout the last couple of laps, producing some of the finest racing I've seen in Div3, but unfortunately such is the penalty for close racing that the smallest mistake can spell disaster. Both drivers agreed that their positions should be reversed, but while a mistake from JB is a rare occurrence, nevertheless the usual rules must apply.

  • Jonathan Ballpenalty — Overly ambitious overtake — 2 places lost


Several drivers shift-R'd during the practice session, notably just after the Masta Kink. This is not allowed and is clearly stated in the rules. However, this is not something I had previously checked for since I started modding, so rather than going back & checking the last few races, I will let this pass. Please note that I will be checking for this in future though, and if it causes a problem for another driver it will be treated as a bad rejoin, with the associated 3 place penalty.

Moderator's Report

Another gripping race to watch, with plenty of close racing and battles for position all the way down the field. Unfortunately the price you pay for close racing is quite a few racing incidents, but the standard of driving overall was excellent. Congratulations to Derek Jones for a well deserved win, you can practically see the sweat pouring off his forehead in the replay!


Lap1

V.Kwiker dives inside J.Vizoso under braking for T2. Juan is ahead and entitled to turn in, but is spun out. This was rather an over-ambitious passing attempt, but given the warp involved I'll class it as a racing (warp) incident.

However, Vinny then does pretty much the same thing to L.Wong under braking for the Nouveau Monde Hairpin, although this time Luci cooly recovers while Vinny learns the hard way why everyone else takes it easy for the first few corners, and rolls his car with cold tyres and a full fuel load.

  • Vinny Kwikerpenalty — Overly-ambitious Overtake on lap 1 — 3 places lost


Lap 2

E.Urbanski loses it braking for the Nouveau Monde Hairpin, unfortunately collecting N.Wood and T.Whiting.

Racing Incident.

Tim quickly recovers, rejoining just behind G.Houghton who had managed to avoid the carnage by taking a wide line round the hairpin, but Tim hits his rear tyre, spinning Graham out and blocking the track. Both C.Griffin and L.Wong then collided with the crashed Ferraris, seemingly unable to brake from a heady 20mph in time to avoid the blockage.

K.Lawrie and M.Portman managed to stop okay, although a little warp threw their cars sideways.

I won't give warnings for lack of care approaching an incident on this occasion given that the tight corner may have restricted Clive and Luci's view forward, but both drivers could have avoided adding to this incident. Although Clive hit Tim's car, Clive was flipped by Luci, so I'll allow his no-fault shift-R.

C.Griffin - Caution (lack of care approaching an incident)
L.Wong - Caution (lack of care approaching an incident)


Lap 2

S.Gymer rearends R.Maiph under braking for the Scierie hairpin at the end of the back straight, unfortunately collecting G.Byford who had no time to avoid Simon's spinning car. If you follow another car into a braking zone but are too far back to pass, brake a little earlier and take advantage of your opponent's defensive line to get a better exit onto the following straight. GPL's prediction method means that, as with cornering side by side, you need to leave more room than you think to avoid rearending the car ahead.

P.Adams hit the pack too, but he missed his braking point & would have crashed out anyway.

G.Byford was entitled to a non-fault shift-R, but retired at the next corner after spinning out on cold tyres.

  • Simon Gymerpenalty — Rear-end Shunt, mitigated from 2 by SnG — 1 place lost (plus 1 for penalty points)


Lap 2

K.Lawrie spins out accelerating away from Scierie, collecting E.Urbanski.

Racing Incident.


Lap 3

K.Saxena is knocked sideways by a big warp from D.Jones' car at Scierie. The two cars were several feet apart at the time.

Racing (warp) Incident.


Lap 5

J.Vizoso gets a bit sideways through Sanson and collects R.Maiph. K.Saxena wasn't involved, but did pull off an excellent demonstration of how to avoid an incident ahead. Those involved in the L2 Nouveau Monde pile-up should take note.

Racing Incident.


Lap 5

L.Wong Shift-R's and comes in to do a SnG on Lap6 but doesn't actually stop. Pitstops are part of racing, and it's just as important to practice them as lapping the circuit.

  • Luci Wong — Failing to stop & go after a Shift-R — 15.000 seconds added


Lap 6

J.Vizoso puts a wheel on the grass & spins off, collecting R.Maiph as he bounces off the fence back onto the track. If you are approaching a car spinning across the track, try to predict where the car is going to be when you reach it rather than steering away from where it is at the time. R.Maiph is entitled to a no-fault shift-R.

Racing Incident.


Lap 7

G.Houghton swerves to avoid N.Wood as Woody leaves the pits. Woody kept to the right and left as much room as possible for Graham, but please bear in mind that even if you are racing for position, you should give way to high-speed traffic as you leave the pits. I'll call it a racing incident since Graham could have held onto it, but Woody should have backed off, there was no way he could have stayed ahead of Graham.


Lap 13

N.Wood has been holding off J.Ball & D.Jones for several laps when Derek manages to get alongside Jon under braking for Scierie, but leaves it a little too late. Woody jinks left to avoid Derek's out of control car, but unfortunately unsettles Jon as the three of them brake for the turn. Had any of the drivers collided I would have called it an over-ambitious passing attempt by Derek, but since there was no contact I'll put it down as a racing incident. Although ideally Woody shouldn't have moved towards Jon, he was doing so to avoid Derek, rather than as a blocking move.


Lap 15

M.Portman spins out and comes to rest on the track, unfortunately collecting T.Whiting. Tim is entitled to a no-fault shift-R.

Racing Incident.


Lap 16

G.Houghton makes a move on P.Adams into T2 but Paul turns in surprisingly early and they collide. Although Graham was not ahead at the time they collided, had Paul turned in at the right point he would have been. However, T2 is not exactly the best place to try for a passing attempt, and it would have been better for Graham to wait a corner or two. Graham was not entitled to a no-fault shift-R.

  • Graham 'Ford24V' Houghtonpenalty — Over-ambitious overtake, mitigated by P.Adams blocking move — 1 place lost
  • Paul Adamspenalty — Blocking, mitigated by G.Houghton's over-ambitious overtake — 1 place lost



Lap 16

R.Maiph successfully outbrakes T.Whiting into Scierie, but pulls back onto the racing line too early, his rear tyre clipping Tim's car and spinning them both out. Tim was already as far over to the right as he could go, Ralph should have left more room.

  • Ralph Maiphpenalty — Side by side contact — 2 places lost


Lap 17

J.Ball & N.Wood are once again side by side under braking for Scierie, Woody is ahead into the corner but runs wide. Jon tries to take advantage by tucking inside but a slight warp knocks Woody sideways and takes them both out.

  • Jonathan Ball — Rear-end shunt, mitigated by the small amount of warp involved — 0 places lost


Lap 18

T.Whiting and R.Maiph are having a terrific scrap for 7th place on the last lap, Tim runs a little wide and as Ralph follows him round but on a tighter line a warp knocks Tim sideways even though their cars were several feet apart.

Racing incident.

Moderator's Report

Firstly, I must apologise for the tight grid. There was a notification of a change to the servers that I should have been aware of but hadn't seen, and any rumours about mods keeping you on your toes are entirely false! Well done everyone who managed to take advantage of it though. At the end of the day it was the same situation for everyone and some dealt with it better than others.

Congratulations to Woody for a fine win, well deserved after a clean, consistent drive.


Lap 1

G.Houghton moves left at the start, then changes his mind & moves back again only to find that T.Whiting has moved into the gap he left. E.Urbanski does a fine job of avoiding the flying cars, unfortunately C.Griffin, N.Wood and M.Portman are unable to avoid them though. K.Lawrie does well to avoid the crash too, but is taken out by P.Adams' slow reaction to the incident ahead. There's a good chance that Paul may have been unable to avoid the crash anyway, so I'll treat this as a racing incident, but please take more care when approaching an incident.

Given the closeness of the grid it would have been very difficult to avoid an incident, and Graham's penalty is reduced as a result.


Lap 3

P.Adams rearends E.Urbanski under braking after several laps of close racing. Paul SnG'd the following lap.

  • Paul Adamspenalty — Rearend shunt, reduced for the SnG — 1 place lost


Lap 11

C.Griffin pits for his scheduled SnG but doesn't actually stop even though he tries to twice. Given the time taken over the pitstop I'll let this go, but please be more decisive in future!


Lap 10

N.Wood and J.Vizoso both get knocked sideways by a warp of several feet.

Racing (warp) incident.


Lap 18

E.Urbanski takes to the grass and as he recovers, C.Griffin coincidentally loses it at the same corner and they collide.

Racing incident.


On a final note, Jon Ball clouted the bridge rather impressively (and amusingly) on lap 8. In the 'Aerobatic Stunt' contest that several drivers appeared to have taken part in for this race, Jon's spectacular crash wins him the booby prize of this mention in the mod's report. ;-)

Moderator's Report

Firstly, although the race announcement stated a 23 lap race, the race length was actually set to 26 laps on the server. Although I don't believe anyone ran out of fuel as a result, I can only offer my apologies if it caused a problem. The main effect of this though was that the pitstop window changed. Taking into consideration the windows for both a 23 lap & 26 lap race everyone complied with one window or the other though.

Congratulations to Simon Gymer for a solid performance & win at a challenging track.


Only one incident of note in this race, towards the end of lap1 Tim Whiting loses it & quickly recovers on the last corner before the chicane. After he recovers his car clips the front of Keith Lawrie's Cooper, spinning Keith off & into Tom Goodall.

Had Tim not spun & just chosen this line through the corner this would have been an ambitious overtake by Keith, but considering that had Tim not spun Keith almost certainly wouldn't have attempted the same move round the outside I'll put this down as a racing incident.
