By the way, I failed to get my lowfuelmotorsport license after two attempts :(  Was lapping within a second of the target time (which is quite slow, as I've forgotten how to do Hungaroring) but on both occasions I got aliens right up my arse who put me off and made me crash (flashing lights, right up my behind etc).  So I gave up in frustration.  Will try again later when the server is quiet.

Are you telling me that not having mirrors due to hardware restrictions is actually a good thing? 🤔

Morning guys, it's the penultimate round of the season @ a rainy Brands Hatch.  Yikes this is going to be hairy :D

Blimey, this is so close it's mental!

 

Good luck everyone tonight!

Another hotfix out today. Hoping I can reach the giddy heights of my own time tonight, set very early in a very quick practice! I have since then had about one more hour at it while feeling tired, thought I was doing really well but I'd remembered my previous time wrong by one second so actually I was still 0.3s down on my best :blush:

 

Mostly crossing my fingers I can go a whole race without binning it, as ever.

That's really annoying, how many people were on the server when you got on? There was about 9 when I was on and managed to find a comfortable gap between cars and I was lapping in the low 1.48s. I only came across one person while doing my laps. I was pretty nervous as well getting on the server, I think just the extra pressure of it being a licence.

Yeah I was doing low 1:48s too.  There were about 10 people, I just got unlucky with aliens doing super quick laps coming up right behind me and being aggressive; so it just put me off.  And as you need 7 subsequent clean laps it got frustrating.

They probably think they own the track, that's frustrating especially as it's not a traditional competitive session, if you're an alien it should be a breeze to just drive around the others even at the Hungaroring.

Yeah, the first guy came up to me flashing his lights; and when I moved over to let him stick to his line he moved over at the same time and hit me.  And the second guy just came right up to me on a corner and I got flustered and invalidated my lap.  The second one I might have done better with; but the first guy was an arse :D

Hi everyone it's been a little while since I've posted here :)Hope the recent season has been fun. 

Is there any way I could spontaneously hop in for the race tonight as well?

Ah man, Cassidy! Not sure if it was you I messed up the second race for but I think it was.

 

I am so goddamn sorry for that rejoin from the grass after spinning out in turn three pretty early on in the race, after the incident where two dudes spun in turn 1. I overcooked the turn and slid on to the grass and really struggled to turn the car on the grass and think I ended up rolling down perpendicularly onto the track instead of parallell as I tried so you had no chance and hit me. Or maybe it was when I ran off in t4 and struggled to straighten the car. Not sure right now but one of the two it was. I really should have looked better around me and not tried to get going too quickly. I am really embarrassed as that has to be something I should be able to avoid doing after 315 hours in the game (wich is not much compared to others but enough so I should be better than I am).

 

I will look at the replays when I can bring myself to watch them and wil DEFINETELY use this as a learning experience and hopefully improve. As I said to the others today I might be too slow and too inexperienced to drive with you guys and I hate the thought that I end up screwing up someone´s race like that.

 

If this wasn´t you it was someone else in here so sorry to whoever was affected by my driving. 

 

Now - beer time. Day off tomorrow. Goddamnit 🤬

Well done guys, that was tough.  Sorry @EuroVapeSim2 for smashing into you; I was so concentrated on getting the car going and was in such a flap from my spin, my concentration was gone and you got the brunt of it :(  I'm especially annoyed as you are my closest challenger and I'm annoyed you had to leave with so much damage.

 

It was such a disastrous couple of races for me.

 

To make matters worse, I tried for my LFM license again and was doing 1:57s but the server session ended after I'd done 6 clean laps 😬

 

EDIT: Just went back in and got the license :D Easy that time!

 

@SneakyNinja I've adjusted the points to give you what would have been second place points haul (and adjusted others too).

Absolutely no need to apologise to me, I actually hit you in T4, my car was heavily damaged from hitting @davejm in T1. I just wasn't able to turn left at all and just went straight into your side. I jumped back to the pits after and controls were locked for 4 minutes and I decided to call it quits there.
