Oh, that’s weird, I’m sure I set a faster time than that -1:45.1 I think - I spent ages trying to get into the 1:44s! I stand to be corrected though - maybe I spent ages trying to get into the 1:45s. Yarrick was also in at one point and  he set a time too.

That's strange, nothing showing on the server results...

Thanks chaps! Just a mini-honeymoon for now. At the end of the party we were taken to an unknown destination as a surprise - to a honeymoon suite at a luxurious hotel. Came back yesterday to open all the gifts and clean the place up. Back in the office today.

 

The proper honeymoon will have to wait, probably next year. Need to save up again, hahaha!

 

The COVID measurements have been mostly lifted here. A large part of the country has been vaccinated and it looks like it's having a good effect. Didn't have a huge party but most of it was held outside so it should be alright I hope.

 

May I post a pic of us or is that frowned upon these days because of privacy stuff etc?

Can't see why it'd be an issue, people still post pictures of themselves in the Rogue's Gallery thread.

Damn it's Tuesday already and I've gotten no practice done, even though I didn't manage to finish either race around Suzuka in the Ferrari I think I'm going to stick with it for this season.

Go for it.  Would be good to put a face to the name.  I've posted a picture of myself in here before! :)

Just looking at the server results @davejm, it’s not recorded any times or even laps for my first session of the evening, which is the one Yarrick joined too. I did about 30 laps. I made a second attempt to get inside 1:44 (which is the second session recorded) but quickly gave that idea up, hence the 1:45.9 after 4 laps of running.

OK ta, I might send an email to the hosts and see why.  Bit of a shitter if there are results files going missing!

That fire engine will need some aero on the front and some lowering of the suspension to be competitive at Zandvoort ! But the higher seating position will make tight corners easier in traffic.

Haha I was thinking that as well! The driver needed to double clutch to get it in gear. Thing doesn't go faster than 60kph either, so no idea how they made it to the fires in time. :lol:

I've been off rallying but I think I'm going to try and get back into this when the next gen patch hits consoles next year, if anyone else is on Xbox and fancies it? It's just so much easier and more instant than PC for me.

I've picked it up on Xbox in the recent sale so would be up for a few races. I know the Series X|S versions aren't out until Feb but from what I understand the Series X version runs closer to 60 now and the game isn't quite the train wreck it was.

 

It's good to have a picture of Meers to visualise the enemy during the race. Congrats.

I continue to struggle to find the flow of Hungaroring, it's getting a little better now for me on what I think is my third attempt at mastering things. The McLaren is a lot different to the Honda, not sure I coax as much raw pace out of it but I'm a lot less on the knife-edge of losing control completely, it feels like I have much more time to react to its feedback. I've lots to learn about setting it up yet, that's for sure.

 

Congratulations, @Meers!

Thank you all! 🤗

 

I managed to set a time last night in the Macca 720, 1.46:6xx something. The car's lovely to drive, slightly less feisty than the 488. Used the default setup and changed a few settings here and there. It's not the fastest setup but it's very consistent so I think I'll use this setup tonight as well.

 

Looking forward to it!

I've been away camping with the family this last week - so not had an opportunity to set a time or do any practice.  I'm just going to wing it tonight lads - wish me luck 

 

While I was away I didn't have any electricity, but I did still get some wheel time.  Rate my setup:

edit: after posting this I've just noticed the mismatched front tyres.   Shocking setup error!
