Qualifying was a surprise getting it into the 3:04's, Race 1 was great with a fun battle with Ricard and Race 2 was a mess :doh: Got too close to Austin, tried to avoid contact and swung right too quickly.

Quali - Best lap hit by traffic... scratch

Heat 1 - Excellent getaway! :top: Then...

Braked too late for the first (proper) turn! Embarassed From then on, damage made life difficult, especially when holding off one of the 3.0 Porsches :aie:  Then my brakes gave up into Indianapolis and my front-right got caught in the fence Sad

Heat 2 - Quite possibly the most chaotic start I've ever witnessed in a league... :doh:
Admittedly, I was part of it too - I was caught out by how slow some of the cars were off the start and I took Svenja's wing off, then I looked in my wingmirror and saw her spinning round and oh..... pale
Avoided the carnage at turn two, then Steve blasted past with no rear wing! lol! Then I was caught out with how early he had to brake and had a very lucky escape myself. Then had another lucky escape (and another 3 positions in a flash!) at the Porsche curves, avoiding the remains of another collision! :drink:
After that, very quiet race, made positions as those ahead crashed. Very satisfied with 4th at the end of that heat :champ:

Well I have to say that was the most enjoyable event I've done in quite some time, the car and track combo was always going to be good and a nice result for me made it even better Very Happy

Went for a very soft easy to drive setup, with a bit more downforce and even hard tires to make the car more predictable over the run. Lost a fair bit down the straight (was 'only' doing 206mph) but I could hold onto and catch most cars I saw in the Porsche curves. which was nice. the car felt really nice to me too.

First race survived the chaos and just kept pounding round for 8th.

Did the same in the second and got 6th

I know I didn't get that on pace but I had fun driving a great car on a great track

Thanks to all for a fun evening

Great fun in both races. Very Happy
Qualifying went very well, considering that i had to do it with medium tyres because softs overheated too much. Lost pole in the very last minute to Alessio, who pulled a brilliant lap out of the bag.

Race 1 was a nice fight with Alessio from start to finish, we were very close, but when lapping Joshua, he spun, I couldn't avoid him and lost my front spoiler. I thought my race was over, but the car turned into a rocket on the straights, it was quite a bit slower in the corners, but overall my pace improved so I could eventually win the race. geek

Race 2 started with a great battle between Balazs, Alessio, Austin and me, with Martin just a bit behind. Alessio and Martin crashed first and after a while it was Balazs who slammed the wall, so only Austin and me remained in the fight until the end. My car was quite damaged from some small crashes, and trying to follow Austin I had a bigger crash in the penultimate lap, so I took it easy and finished second. Smile

Good fun, and thx Martin for the event. :top:

Yea that was a great race! My first outing in these machines and i did better than i expected. Very Happy

First race was crazy, that first corner makes for a crazy start! I was just trying to keep pace with Alessio and Ricard they were blazing fast. Just tried too keep smooth so the tires would stay on the car and had some nice battles with Balazs. I was about 7 sec off the leaders on the last lap and the inevitable happend while pushing to hard in the esses, i spun a complete 360 and kept it going :aie: Luckily i was able to hold 3rd :top:


Second race was also a crazy one. There was some great battles up front!!! between all of us. That was awesome. Sorry again Alessio i looked at the replay i did move down a little but that was to only let you around. Couple guys crashed and before i could blink i was battling Ricard for first place. Eventually got around him with 2 laps left..... probably because he had some damage, then i just tried to keep it smooth for the remaining 2 laps and it was a success :banane:

Overall great race some minor hiccups but its racing right.These cars are really fun hope we can all get to race again :drink:

Thanks HSO for putting on another great race :chinois:

Haha Yves oui c’était pour te faire une dédicace que je m'y suis sorti aux deux courses :D Bon pour la deuxième je l'ai un peu cherché, j'avais une suspension cassée depuis le contact avec la voiture d'Alessio et j'ai voulu passer à la même vitesse qu'avec une voiture saine geek Bravo pour ta 3ème place au général!

@Gui: oui je m'en doute, je te taquinais :jp:

Thanks the organisation. It should be better, but I'm sick, and I had a hard headache so the concentrate to this cars was too much for me.
Grats Ricard, awesome speed. :hello:

Very cool event! :clap:

But i never get a feeling for this crazy car, even after some practice... no way scratch So strategy was clear, floor it on the straights and try to get round that corners somehow :aie:

In Race 1 i could avoid all the crashes. At the end i managed to stay in front of Dave for many laps, well he had the slower car but it was good fun pulling away on the mulsanne and then try to stay in front at the corners :conduit: But then in the last lap some corners before finish i spun without any pressure Rolling Eyes and lost that place to Dave.

Race 2 again could avoid the crashes but after some overtaking i couldn't catch up the racers in front did some lonely laps and crashed at about lap 7, did a full lap to get to the pit for some duct tape :aie: but didn't work out so i had to retire.

So over all a very nice comeback to HSO, i'll be back! :spy:

Wow I hit that wall harder than I thought on lap 1. Thought I had collected someone else but I see I did not. Probably ruined 3 race seats though, mine not included.
