:hum: I was wondering who Greg was calling silly. Seems we have a winner of the Exlax Smooth Move award for Austin for plowing into Greg  :doh:  on the parade lap! Wear it proud before flushing  Wink   :aie: :rigol:

I am sure it was accidental though. He did try to dive away. Greg did a lovely spin and Kerrunch into the wall. 10 points for artistry, 9 for not quite sticking the landing.

Was really looking forward to this race especially as we had such a quality field of cars i like this track and have finished here twice already so had high hopes ... Was late getting to the race so only had 1 lap to get a qualifying lap in ....
The Race did not start well as i had no red start box all i could remember was that Philippe was near or behind me so i looked for a place on the grid ... I tried to take it easy at the start as i new there would be total carnage with this many cars and i was correct .. The Start was crazy , impossible not to hit someone or get hit by someone yourself after  a few laps and the Bumper car session was over i had a nice few laps with Philippe ...

After 6 laps or so my car just started behaving really strangely like it had a mind of its own felt like the gearbox was knackered i can remember at one point i was going along in 3rd gear on one of the straights
and it just would not accelerate from one lap to the next i lost 8 seconds ... One lap it was ok and then the next it would play up again ... Totally ruined my race the car was just so unpredictable i spent most of the race driving around on my own until i got lapped ......

About 8 laps before the end i was driving on my own and i had a CTD luckily i was on a straight when it happened so i was able to get back into the race without taking anyone out of the race  :doh: Was hoping for a top 15 but will have to settle for 20th ...:aie: 

The only thing i can take from this race is my 100% finishing record at Macau is still intact   Smile 

Well done to Mr Kiss  :champ: and congrats all finishers  :drink:
I think I might have an answer as to why you were slow on the straights from time to time. When I was behind you coming out of Mandarin (the hairpin) your brake lights were flashing. I wouldn't be surprised if you checked and found that you were getting a certain degree of un-wanted braking from your pedal not moving back all the way up after you've stopped braking  :smil20: 


Regarding my race.....

I feel that I probably made every possible misstake I could do.

It all began with me getting a good start but not being able to avoid the rear of Jan, sorry for the hit Sad

I spent most of Lap1 taking it very easy to then have Joel fly up the inside at Mandarin, thankfully I was checking my mirrors otherwhise that one could have been an ugly one.

That move threw me off and I soon got passed by Richard and then, foolishly, tried to keep it around the outside which ended in me having to check up and the fellow behind me had nowhere to go and hit me spinning me around on the exit of the 3rd gear right hander just before heading down the hill again. Sorry for that incident Sad

Realized immidietly that I was in a bad spot but not lethal so I stayed there and turned my lights on to try and help the oncoming traffic with exactly where I was sat at. No one hit me so I guess it worked and tried to get it turned around between the two groups that had formed after the problems on lap 1 but couldn't get going in time and had to sit there and wait for the second group as well. Got going again, now in 34th or there about and was fuming.

Quickly caught the group ahead and, by that time, had calmed enough to not try anything foolish but instead wait for a clear chance at a pass. Especially Dave in his M3 showed some very nice defensive skills keeping me behind for a lap and a bit Smile

Also had a nice battle with Phillipe after I failed a first pitstop thinking it was working like in another sim and therefore had to dive in again (my driving style meant I couldn't go the distance on one tank unfortunately  :bangry: ) which lasted for 2 or 3 laps until Phillipe made a misstake which allowed me to outbrake him into T3 Smile

The rest of the race I spent trying to catch Leo and Steve who were ahead.


I didn't enjoy driving the Sierra. I was hoping that I would but it's just way to specific in the way it drives that it's just not fun. The Power is to......... high up in the revs, I hurt my soul when I rev an engine that high. That's why the Mustang, Holden and Rover is more up my street.

The ford panel bashers won't be happy, there is a lot of work to be had on my car after that race, only the roof was straight  :aie: 


Thank you to those I battled with. I hope I'll be able to battle you all again, next time in a more suitable car  cheers :drink:

Yes we had more cars starting yesterday than we had in the two previous Guia Race editions we did put together :D . In fact I think it was our very first race with 40 cars on track  Cool

Great event last night, with a superb field on a great track with great cars :D! With 40 cars on track I was a bit worry we would have a lot of bugs, but it all went rather well considering Smile. The only bad bug was Balazs stuck in no man's land before the start, but thankfully he appeared on his grid slot (just in front of me :D) just before the start was given... and went on to win the race  Cool ! Grats Balazs I was happy to see you win it in the end  :drink: !

For me it went rather well, a nice consolation after two bad showings at Snetterton and Laguna Seca. I bettered my PB in qualifying with 32s4 but I screwed up sector one badly on that lap and missed a 31s7  :smil20: Still, 6th out of 40 was decent enough Smile.

The start went well and the highlight of the race for me was the first braking at Lisboa where I managed to pass by the outside Greg and the two Sierras of Alexandre and Oscar  :jp: . Early on I tried to keep in touch with Vladko while keeping the Sierras at bay, but I had to let Alexandre by after around 10 laps. However I was hoping the tyres on his big Sierra would go off towards the end of the race so I tried to stay close to him in the meantime. A bit of tough luck in traffic and an almost spin at half distance put me 6 seconds behind Alexandre, and that proved a bit too much in the end. The last 5 laps were excellent though as I was catching Alexandre by 1s per lap and Vladko, who must have been on mediums, by 2s per lap. I really thought I was gonna grab P3 in the last lap, but more unlucky draw in traffic prevented that. Still I had a go at Alexandre in the penultimate turn in the last lap, but that was a bit optimistic I think and I spun him out  :aie: I waited of course and crossed the line behind him. Great defense on shot tyres Alexandre  :top: One more lap and you were mine though  :antoine: :D .

Other than that I hope Alban Cosnuau is going to post very soon some apologies as he triggered the turn 2 wreck in the first lap. No bad intentions from Alban, just a driving error, but then the result was the same for the dozen cars that were taken into that mayhem  Evil or Very Mad .
Austin rear ending Greg in the formation lap was ugly too, but he already apologized for that. I hope you will be more cautious in the future during formation laps Austin  1989 Macau Guia Race [February 23rd] - Page 9 1623587389 :biggrin: 

Thanks all for coming, it was a great event  :top: 

Stay tuned for the annoucement of the 1989 DTM which will use the exact same carset as the one we used last night Smile

désolé pour le carnage au deuxième virage, c'est moi qui tape le rail et part en tonneaux  pale

 Saddened for the slaughter in the second bend, it is me who bang(type) the rail and leaves for barrels  pale

dommage, j'ai abîmé ma bm 2 ou  3 tours avant la fin, peut être dû à une lassitude de me retrouver seul ou tout simplement une erreur de jugement.
malgré tout content de mes qualifs.
je suis parti en pneu hard, je pense que c’était aussi une erreur.
bon, je réserve ma bm pour le futur champ Wink
alors bye.... et biz donc ;)lol

Je passe dans un trou de souris, le Big One Crash du 2ème virage. Puis laissant mes amis s'extirper de la ferraille, j'ai un petit gap de sécurité, sans pression avec mon poursuivant. Je suis tranquille le petit train de Macau, à distance raisonnable de Pascal et Richard. Jusqu'au tour 3, où un rail me refait le coup de Laguna seca, au lieu de me faire rebondir, il défonce tout le capot jusqu'au cockpit. Moteur et avant cassé. Sombre période pour moi avec les rails d'insécurités.  :frank:
Thanks to Vadim, to offer his car, and sorry to have not make a better result.  :frank:

I felt I really struggled testing here. Doing clean laps wasn't a problem, but I was suprised how off the pace I was leading up to the event. I was expecting to be 3 seconds off the pace of people I race with in other series, but 5-8 seconds!! I figured I just hadn't discovered the potential of these relative modern cars, as with the exception of Formulae Atlantic, the most modern car I have driven is '76. But I noticed I could easily do 26 laps on a set of softs, getting consistent times between 2:40/43, so figured I just hadnt dialed in an aggrresive enough setup, so focused on what I had, and concentrate on long runs, hoping I would make any gains on people having to pit for tires.

Qualified with a pb, mainly due to giving it my all finding a gap in traffic. On the grid where I half expected, but with a few surprises who was ahead. My red box was in a very odd place right behind and slightly to the right of car in front, so tried to position myself where I thought I should be, using car a round as reference, but server relocated me back in misplaced box. I thought how I wasn't to gain an advantage of this, but needn't have worried as I got swamped by almost every one behind....

So.....out of turn 2.....yellows before I got to turn 2 warned of some trouble round the corner. Was some distance ahead as came round, but there was a lot of debris , tire marks and smoke ahead, so gauged my speed accordingly.....by the time I got there, it was absolute mayhem, I sighted a gap to the right, but still scrubbing off speed, but a car in the main pile of cars bounced off another into me, and with others pilinginto the back of me I was launched over the ever increasing wreckage right over the top and landed right way up past it. My speed before launch was 65mph(105kph?) From 36th to 23rd over the top!!

I watched the replay of the incident from every car. Considering the extreme rapidity and sudden change of direction at the beginning of the first few cars involved, carnage was on the cards, but I concluded as things transpired less damage could been achieved. Many drivers who were first to arrive, we all reducing speeding, followed by many increasing speed, some up until say 10 meters before wreck, despite having longer and more distance to react??

Anyway, a pit stop required. Couldn't decide (due to no testing of various scenarios) whever I would get away with no damage repairs and just a new set of tires....and I think I was too eager to let undamged car pass on way to pits....back on track , and found myself being lapped already, as I was having a battle with Simon Wattman, as we both took advantage of the other letting lapping traffic through....

.........and to some appologies...

To Gregoire Guissan for not allowing you a clean run to apex as you were on the tail of Austin...I was having a a job trying to seperate frivers catching me for position and lappers.

To Pascal Lapaurne......having let some one pass putting me the outside, I was heading for the wall sticking out from a sort of layby. My instinct was to keep turning to avoid it, but that caused contact with you.

To Tiago....After you lapped me, I found I could easily keep up with you and inplaces could have unlapped myself...(your post explains why this was....there was me thinking I had cracked it!) I was in a real dilema what to do. Sorry of I put you off.

....and finaly, and the most stupid unnecessary mistake, my apologies to Frank. No excuse required as, there was 1 lap to go and car ahead of me for position, was 1 lap ahead and as I was last car running, I could have pulled to a complete halt to let you continue your last lap battle for position.

Despite having to make 2 long stops for repairs and inflated tires, and being so far out of position so early on, I enjoyed it A bit dissapointed I had so much to think about so soon, as if there wasnt enough already.I hope there will be another event here really soon...

Thank you HSO et al

I think I might have an answer as to why you were slow on the straights from time to time. When I was behind you coming out of Mandarin (the hairpin) your brake lights were flashing. I wouldn't be surprised if you checked and found that you were getting a certain degree of un-wanted braking from your pedal not moving back all the way up after you've stopped braking  :smil20: 

Jonatan thanks for being so observant it helps me to realize I'm not completely losing it  lol!
