Brno seems to provide some really good racing so it should be a good one.

Good race everyone, the start was a bit of a mess but after that the race seemed to go pretty well. I put in a little too much fuel to start the race off so I was slow for the first 15 or so laps, after I pitted I started to get into a rhythm and dig into that massive lead Kilon had.

One thing I did notice is the GT cars jumping out of the way for the LMP cars, I almost ran into a few GT cars because it caught me off guard. The LMP cars are the ones making the pass so it is up to them to do it cleanly, the GT cars should remain on the racing line unless you're making it obvious to the LMP driver that you're letting them pass.

I had a lot of fun, hopefully we can get a few more people to race next week.

Side note - What the hell is up with replays in pCars? Kilon is driving a Z4 in my replay and Ozpata is in an Audi.

Good race today... I had a long one I could not come close to the avg lap times I achieved in practice or Qualification so the land of back markers for me. The start I manged to escape injury due to being last on the grid but eventually was caught up I had a moment in one corner when my car glued itself to the Bentley of Sainted and a full stop seperated us no matter how hard I turned she just didin't turn in so I lost all ground I covered at the start then it was about 30 laps give or take of blue flags I tried my best to get out of the way but held up GamingCanuck in one corner when I lost him in my mirrors and zigged when he zigged but luckily he was quick and saw my mistake. I am trying to get the replay's up from the past to races to youtube but my editor is being cranky but once they are done I will post them up here. Looking forward to Catalunya I will hopefully be closer to the pace of the rest of the field and be less of an obstacle and more of a participant.

good race, except for my start which I apologize for and hope didn't ruined anybody's race, it was mostly my fault, letting of the clutch too soon and still not getting use to that sometimes it show the car in right/wrong gear and usually it just fixes by itself as the lights come up

the replays have some issues, in my case it was fine but can get a bit crazy

the LMP cars are the ones doing the pass and have the advantage, so the other ones shouldn't get out of the way, is up to the car behind to make sure that can do it, as it has the view advantage to begin with, but as we get used to running together, it will get better.

once again I apologize for the start

Posted this in the other thread:

After the bad start, I had some damage so my speed was a little lower. I was able to push and gain 2-3 seconds back to GamingCanuck. I think I was getting luckier with traffic than he was.. However, I threw that all away by hitting some tires on the inside of the final corner. That gave me even more damage and I was then about 3 seconds a lap slower. So much so that Ozpata caught up to me on the last lap and would have passed easily had there been one more lap left...

Yeah, I was having a heck of a time. A couple of times I caught two people and I was trying to take my time getting around them without ruining their battle, a few other times I just caught the GT car at a really bad spot.
