    Lets go drive some laps. I wonder how the GSC Zandy is. I've always been terrible here, I don't like bumps.
  8. Rob Hermans SRP Manager

    This version of the track is far smoother than the RACE07 one you experienced with the Porsches, Chris. It wasn't fun being unable to adjust the suspension on those cars, but the Minis are fine around here. :)

  12. Ben Hackeson Licensed Driver

    I'm so sorry, foot caught the clutch and messed up the braking, I waited and then saw your tyre jumping down the road, if it makes it any better, the damaged caused on my car meant I lost second.

    Tyres rule again!

    Got the pole lap. 1:59.575

    Kept the lead of the race and built up a 5.5 seconds gap to 2nd, 3rd and 4th places who could not get away from one another. Happy Days! I decided to pit on lap 12 which this time turned out to be 1 lap too many, or half a lap even! Yes you guessed it, I got another puncture for the 3rd race in a row, costing me massively. Possibly 3 wins out the window, an absolute cert today. :mad: Managed to drag it back to the pits and replaced the tyres. I was back in 6th place after this I think and managed to battle back to 2nd place overtaking, Channer, Hackeson, Swiderski and Bever. So I have to be happy with that I suppose. Very Nice battle for a few bends with Ben Hackeson but had a fantastic battle with Nico, once again. Cheers mate.

    Top race Rob, you deserve a race win, your always there, lurking. :)

    Cya next race!

    One of my worse simracing race ever...

    Qualy: P3 with a bad 1.59.7xx
    My best time in free practice was 59.510 (My best possible was 59.4). In qualy the grip is better, i MUST do a 59.3 but i did mistakes all laps and got P3 with 59.7.

    I know i was able to take the lead and win this race because i had a good speed on this track. Unfortunatly, i had a strong Andy in front of me and he did a great defense. We had a good fight and i could not find the place to overtake him
    So... what could i do??? I found the solution when it was the time to go to the pit...
    No its a bad joke!!!
    I would like go to the pit at the best moment of the race and i expect to go to the pit one lap before Andy. Like that i had a chance to be in front of him after our pit stop. BUT, Andy came to the pit at the same time of me... I was totally lost. I didn't know what to do. I braked (Maybe to late or maybe andy brakes to early) and after i choose to do one lap more. I tried to turn left but it was to late. I crashed Andy and pushed him to the pit back side. I was again totally lost... I didn't know what to do. I stopped my car 2-3 sec and after i put gas to continue my race. I'm SO SO SO SORRY about this accident. I ruined andy's race... my apologies about that mate. If i have a sanction, i will agree with it.

    My car was damaged but i chose to not repair the car in the pit. I was 5th and i jump 2nd.
    I used my tyres to much because my car was damaged. I must be careful. Chris catched me and we had a good fight until the last lap. But i'm really upset to have ruined andy's race and i don't deserve my podium.

    Grats Rob for your victory :)

    Chris... you are a great driver but dude... you need a good team mate or i don't know... maybe a better brain :D This race was for you!!! What's wrong with you??? :D
    When i saw you with your tyres issues, i was smiling again and i told to seb... Chris is the biggest noob as i know :D HAHAHA
    Cheers mate :)

    Thanks for Nice words mate! Your right, I need a teammate to do all the hard work for me and tell me strategy! Because I missed the first round I did not give the races my full attention mate and have not tested full race runs! I fill up the tank to the max and base my strategy on everyone else during the race. If I am behind I will try to pit before and if I'm infront I will wait to see when everyone else pits by looking on the trackmap and then I will pit one lap later. :D Unfortunately it has caught me out 3 times in a row now!! Its such a fine line on these tyres with the stints we're doing.

    Maybe you sell the french noob Foucart and be my teammate next season, then you can do all setup and strategy, tell me the best option and then I win championship! Hehe! ;) :p

    I tried to export my accident replay but i don't know where the file is saved. I don't find it.
    Someone can help me or someone can do a little video of my crash with andy to show what's happened!?
  18. Chris Shepherd Licensed Driver

    I have spoken with Channer and he has said you are DQ from event and lose 30 points for bad sportmanship! :) :p
  19. Nicolas Béver Licensed Driver

    Sell Foucart??? NEVER!!! He is the best team mate as we can have!
    Be your team mate? Hum... no it will be not funny ^^ I prefer to have you as a strong contestant to kick your ass - it's more funny :D

    Haha you hope for this ^^
