That was a waste of my time. Evil or Very Mad
I got a stop-go penalty for nothing, it said I was in front of the car I should be following, when I was behind him and had never been in front of him. Twisted Evil
I continued hoping the penalties had been disabled but NO. Shocked
The race was going well up until then.

Dang...

...finally, the race got underway and I had a good car. Not a particular fast car, but one to keep up and well balanced in both clean air and traffic. Was for nought when I got to deep on the apron and lost the rear Rolling Eyes

The qualifying was good, the race was great until my first pit exit, when I was immediately losing power and with the beginning of next Full Course Yellow, my engine said enough.

fun race tonight, until i hit the wall slighty with the rear. Made the car too unstable for me with less practice so i spun at turn 2 a couple of laps later. Luckily noone was hurt from my crash.

Had a cracking race while it lasted, got a good run going with the Rascar until I blew the engine leaving the pits

Thanks to David Jaques for sorting me out with a setup, the car was an absolute joy to drive

Enjoy Thruxton everyone, see you all next year :conduit:

What a horrible race, and I better not elaborate on some driving standards ....  :grrr:

Qualy fucked up thanks to gas pedal not going past 95%, start the race mid field then HORRIBLE lag and cars jumping all around. Nightmarish, hit Gerard Ryon while passing on the first laps when he suddenly appeared in front of me (Sorry for that mate pale ) Car got Front wing damage, and my pace was lowered, though still decent, but on the straights was passed by everyone thanks to aero damage adding drag. Managed to time pit stops well and found myself always around the top 5, then when trying to overtake Juha he hit me in the back and got suspension damage Evil or Very Mad . From then on the race was hell, so hard to keep the car going and every restart was a nightmare because with damage it took some laps for the tires to warm up and make the car more or less controllable. Finally, when dicing with John Tim for position he crossed diagonally the whole track at corner entry in front of me  scratch   :bangry: and I had to rectify and dive for the inside too hard and came out of the next corner almost hitting the wall, sideways and with all cars passing for the gap the turbulence did the rest and I spun and collected poor David Jundt. In any case, I ave to apologize myself to Tim also for one situation when I entered turn 3 too hot behind Adam and the aero understeer I miscalculated and pushed me upside and nearly hit him, whom we both were passing. 

The hell with it, after the shunt I quit instead of limping to the pits for repairs, I had enough already of this shit.  :bangry:

Gerard or me or the both of us? Not that it made much of a difference, neither your outcome nor my brain fade

But yeah, I had people appear and disappear randomly, too...

True I remember also having possible contact with you at the first laps for the same reason. Did you also experience lag as me?

Great race!
I had a great car and pace in this race and would have won more positions if I had not had the yellow flag, I had fuel for 4 more laps.
Congratulations Martin Lacina!

Woohooo! Great victory, Martin :champ: It's an honor to be the other Czech guy on the podium Wink The race went quite well, it was actually quite surprising to be in top 5 for most of the race. Unfortunately, I slapped the wall twice, especially the second hit (right rear) with some 50 laps to go changed the handling of my car, which eventually cost me any chance to fight for victory. But it was a fun race all around. And as a bonus, I really needed a PEE stop in the middle of the race :urgence:  I knew I couldn't hold it till the end, so I jumped out of my cockpit during a yellow flag pit stop and left for a minute Very Happy

Great race, great result, great season, great job by the HSO crew. Thank you everybody, see you in 2019 :drink:

Thanks guys it was fantastic driving. The key was the last pitstop when i went into the pit one lap after Austin (lap 171) with almost empty tank. And i did 5,2L per lap so 29laps into the finish so i hope for win because i belived Austin will have a big problem with fuel. Great racing Austin and all the others. Fantastic race. I love ovals. :yaa:

No idea.  Will look at the replay; if the pass didn't happen, I will edit the results.

I experienced lag early on which caused me to have to serve a penalty for passing before yellow. It was either that or be DQ'd.  When we get plus 30 cars in rfactor, the server can do wacky things.  At least going forward, AMS and the new server offer the chance to leave these snags behind...

Sorry for that, I thought you were going a bit faster.

My own race was a mess. I got a Stop/Go penalty on lap 1, made it from last to first despite damage which cost me half a second per lap, and with a top 5 place on the cards I crashed it.

bizarre race to say the least. contact on the straight while beside a car i was lapping (not sure why such a movement when already beside), handling was horrible after that. stop/go that came out of no where which put an end to any hopes.

grats to martin for the win and austin for the gold cup!

Big congrats to Martin Lacina for this deserved victory  :clap: You had already proven several times how amazingly quick you are at ovals with incredible qualy times, but you were still to consolidate that in the race. Today you drove brilliantly, with cool and calculating head and beating no other than Austin Johnson on a nearly identical car. What else can be said?  :champ: 

Also big kudos to Austin for his driving with the Kingfish, you almost got the 3x crown ... but next year you will have another chance  :antoine:  

Grats to daddy Hlavac and all finishers, despite my hellish experience of lag and damage, I still love to race these cars. Maybe we will see them in AMS in the future, with real turbo effects  :frank: affraid :frank:
