Qualified I think 6th, which surprised me a lot as I wasn't expecting to be that high. Got a decent start, was thinking of turning into T1, and found a very wide Clive inside of me which I wasn't expecting when I hit the brakes as I was past him but should have seen coming. That sent me around so I was facing backwards on the exit, so I just held the brakes so as not to roll downhill and hoped nobody hit me. It didn't happen - I got majorly tagged by either a BRM or a Cooper and just tried to recover from there. Pribluda was going mad, so all I was doing was trying to see how badly the car was handling (worse than a bitch at 4am), how early I had to brake for corners (much earlier), and unfortunately I tagged I think a sick Brabham into Portier when he hit the brakes earlier than I thought he would. I trailed round one more lap, feeling where the car was and how I could keep it on the road, and decided after that lap to park it as it was wobbling worse than me on a Friday night after a few pints of snakebite!

Not the best race, but Lorenzo was leading (just, he'd made a couple cockups), somebody from Mybroga was 2nd, evilclive was 3rd, John Roberts was 4th when I left it.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for organizing this event.
I got lucky and survived to the end, third place with Donnie Y 2nd, and my fellow Mybro Jose Fierro Ford at the head .
I 'm surprised that both the Lotus and I made it to the finish.

I had a good enough start to keep 1st position after starting from pole position and then have the opposition's Ferrari driver behind staying too close for comfort, with Lorenzo following in 3rd. I didn't want to risk my engine so early on as is so important in the Honda, but nevertheless I kept a good enough speed to not let the guy behind have any chances for going on the inside. He kept braking very late and nearly hit me on couple of occasions and thus going wide and losing speed on the exit of the corners. After a few laps he had a bit better exit off Portier so he was right there towards Tabac but I braked late enough to keep him behind. He decided to keep it on the inside initially but then suddenly moved slightly to the right and that was enough to hit me and rearend me just before the entry of the corner and send me into retirement. Pity.

Grats to Mybroga for winning this accident packed race and to Doni - our only finisher.

Not a very satisfactory result for the UK and largely down to me.  I had my chances but fate dealt me from the bottom of the deck.

Grats to the Mybroga gang!  Surviving here is paramount and you doulbed our finishing rate...2 vs 1.

Huge apologies to John Roberts for KO'ing him out of P2.  What a bonehead thing to do.  I didn't know for sure that it was he...I had my suspicions, tho...since a start from pitlane is after the S/F line and I was being scored a lap down with the pitboard of little use at all.

The event started under a grim note when I had no end of controller difficulties.  The FFB feel was all wrong and the calibration shot to Hell.  First lap out in Q and I could barely make it thru the Station Hairpin despite being on full left lock.  WTF?  I jumped out of the server and recalibrated offline and ran a lap at Monaco.  Everything fine.  I came back to the server and the problem re-surfaced.  Impossible!  Again, I left the server and tried to determine what was going on but never did suss to anything.  I got back to the server for a third time and recalibrated there and it seemed better ref the lock but the FFB was still out to lunch.  That I managed a 28 in Q shocked me.  Fearing that things would go horribly wrong on the grid or into T1, I elected to start from the pitlane after everyone had got away.  I honestly didn't think I'd last long as the G25 was well out of tune and around a circuit like Monaco, that will earn punishment early.  Still, if I managed to keep it off the barriers for long enough, I just might snag a point or two for the club and that might help in the final tally.

I passed by a number of shunts early on...saw your's there, Jethro; bad luck...to be running around P10 a lap down on everyone.  Of course, I knew that this was a scoring glitch thanks to the pitlane being down-track of the start line and would be corrected later.  Still, I had to get on with the programme and try to reel in as many as I could.

Around L30, I came across JR seemingly struggling a bit in a Brabham.  He almost lost the car in front of me a couple of times and I did trying to miss him.  There's no way I get around him unless he made a serious error.  And still, of course, I didn't know for sure whom it was.  L34 and JR has a slight slip in Tabac and I get a nice launch and as I'm right on his tail, I reckon this time to make a bid going over to the Gas Works Hairpin.  John held to the right side of the road much longer than I thought he might and in my zeal to get up the inside, stayed well over there myself until I realized that I was going in past the point of no return.  I hammered on the brakes, slid into the inside rail and ricocheted off it to slam JR amidships.  I'm sitting there, stopped, watching his Brabham do a high-side to mount the bales and then fall back onto the roadway...inverted.  Sigh...  Whomever it was, I thought, I'm going to catch an earful for that.  Sad

Nothing to do but carry on at that point and I lit out after Lynn who was quite far up the road but I started carving about 2 seconds out of the deficit every lap so it was going to be close.  With just a handful to go, I managed to catch and harry but with little opportunity to get by.  Of course, I was a lap ahead but the scoreboard said otherwise.  With two laps to run, Lynn went a bit wide in the Gas Works and I tucked low to undercut him but he pulled down sharply on me on the exit and we had a minor biff.  Round he went directly in front of me.  I decided to wait and let him recover and we spent the last lap going at it again but I came up just a bit short.

Quite relieved and satisfied to finish the full 50 laps considering the woeful state of my G25 steering.  It caught me out once in the chicane to send me for a wild spin and I was lucky to get away from that with all wheels still attached.  Whatever could have caused this grief?  VROC?  But I've run the UK server before with VROC and no probs.  I do have some brand new firewall software that is giving me fits with access.  Maybe that was the source.  Dunno.  I'll be looking in to this you can bet!

Well done Doni,
I think I just fell asleep!! I was cruising in 3rd spot just keeping the 2nd placed Mybroga Eagle in sight after Hristo and his tag partner stopped at the tobacconist for a long smoke.
Lorenzo was some 6 or 7 secs ahead and was always just out of sight and the pace had settled to a steady 1:27 ish lap time. I think John Roberts was in 4th spot but was some 9 secs back and my mirrors were clear. I knew I could get down into 1:26's with heavy fuel if I really had to, but was content to play it steady though the first half of the race and bide my time.

Maybe it was because there was no really close racing or my mind just wandered for a moment, but as I went up the hill to enter Casino square I completely missed the ease off and change down marker and careered straight on into the welcoming armco...and 3 wheeled Brabhams are not noted for their victories at Monaco, so it was race over.

Thanks to Mybroga for the race and grats for getting 2??!!  cars to the finish.

At least I got to bed at a reasonable hour. Undecided

Doni, could it be you were chosing to use custom FF settings from the Join tab in vroc so it didn't use your actual core.ini settings? Just a guess.

Possibly, Hristo.

This was something that I'd never encountered previously over hundreds of online races and through me into quite a panic.  On my third re-connect, I did access the options tabs on the fire-up menu and selected my own settings in over-ride.  This seemed to help cure the problem somewhat reference steering lock but the FFB strength and kickback was still miles off.  Negotiating the chicane was the worst with the need for a quick left-right on the steering wheel a complete guess everytime.  I did fluff it once clipping a bale and going for a wild spin.  If it weren't for this last attempt that got me some response from the G25, I wouldn't have even started this race.

Any suggestions as to how to avoid this in future?  As mentioned, it was the first time I've ever experienced such a loss and not one I'd like to repeat.
