Is the server not configured to record lap times? I've spent a few sessions online but the main page isn't showing any activity. (Of course my lap times could have been so pathetic they weren't considered worth showing). :grin:

Unfortunately I'm going to be a "no show" at this one. ;(

My local bowls team have had to re arrange a cup match and the new date clashes with the HIES race.

Shame as I really like this track, I'm not quick but it has a great flow to it.

I did some laps this morning, but having a crappy week so far, and nor feeling fit enough to do the race...have a good one! ;)

Robert I hope you are getting well soon!

After some time of absence I catched Surfers Paradise. And to be honest, I didn´t expect a win. I expected André and Rainer in front, but -yeah - I take it! I had not one problem during the entire session, did about 10 laps of adapting gears and calculating fuel from a Brabham-setup and went in absolutely relaxed. This track has to be driven as smooth as possible - I managed to let the car roll and didn´t break to hard. These conditions are my most preferred - maybe thats why..

Gratulations Rainer & Björn for podium!

Grats Tim and Rainer, :daumenrauf: well done finishers, bad luck DNFs.

I hope you are getting well soon Robert!

The start worked well and the pace was good in the continuation after the first laps. After a few laps I was out on the terrain. Back on the track afterwards had a nice fight with Seb. Too bad you got a spin when braking in an overtaking attempt.

Furthermore, I did a real spin that I lost the most on. Later I drove over the tire borders when I discovered in Pribluda that I was suddenly in third position. :naughty:

After pit stop had a nice fight with Tago. We had a different pit stop strategy. Not easy to overtake on the straight with Brabham but got an opportunity in the first tight corner.

Install: I did my first race at 2560x1440 pixels as an experiment. Have always preferred 1920x1080 for several reasons (Pribluda text size made it a little more difficult).

Nice rounds on this course. The car was mostly stable and balanced but had some tire overheating which is common in general as well. A bit of lugging also happened here, but not dramatically. :)


Thanks to everyone for the race, administration, and programming. :daumenrauf:

See you at Silverstone. :dance:
