Lots of spinning and I apologize to Owen and Tyler for almost collecting them. I especially apologize to Dave for what happened in Variante del Rettifilo.
Almost doesn't require an apology! All good. You had pace on me so it was fun battling.

I had a decent race but totally screwed the pooch when I pulled out in front of Rem. No excuses, just a poor decision born out of excitement. I looped it and thought I had more time to re-enter before he caught me. Next time I will definitely wait. Not the kind of impression I wanted to make in my first race. AND, I don't remember who it was but I think I unintentionally squeezed someone onto the grass coming out of Parabolica. We ended up 3 wide and I was watching the guy on my outside worried I'd understeer into him. I finally got the car turning but then looked to the right and saw I was running that driver out of room. There wasn't any contact and I tried to duck back left to give him space, but he ended up catching the grass and losing it. So apologies to both those guys. I'll be working on my situational awareness for next week.

Otherwise, I had a great time. I really like the Radical, and it's good to be back racing with PRL.

Looks like i owe Dan Barnett a big apology for ending his race on the first lap. I was prepared to come to a complete stop when i saw the traffic jam, but got distracted when i saw my team mate flying through the air. By the time i realized i was still rolling it was too late. I looked up just in time to see my front end smash into that cool psychedelic paint job. I got a 0x for the contact but when i watched the replay i saw that it was the end of your race. I fully take the blame on that one.

We should set up a fee schedule or an "I'm sorry" PayPal account for crashing. Proceeds go to PRL with a small iracing credit donation to the safest driver, or the guy who got wrecked the most.

Kind of like a swear jar...  :lol:

I like that. I feel like I at least owe those guys a beer, so $5 for taking someone out of the race sounds about right.

Cajun, thank you but that didn't end my race, I also had a 0x out of that, no idea how.  What got me was as I was exiting turn 5, some one else t-boned me in the right front and again destroyed the suspension making the car unsteerable.  So by the time I took the tow, and the 27 minutes of required, 6 minutes of optional repairs, I would have re-entered the race with about 5 minutes to go.  But after a good nights sleep, a decent day at work, a nice glass of Mr. Walker in my hand to be followed by a beer, all is right in the world again.  I also have a new strategy to try next week, at the start I am just going to veer right and take out my own suspension. :lol:

I was the guy cutting grass :mrgreen:  and then Tyler got the surprise of his night when he had no time to react  and launched me to outer space  :lol:. Im still in shock how good your car looked!  It’s all good and im moving on to next week. I will say an apology goes a long way with this group, so realizing your mistakes and owning them is a good step. Im sure you will have it all together next week.

The apology write ups are a good thing, its frustrating for the guys that did get totalled from these drivers, but an apology goes a long way, and ends any bad vibes that occurred, and that's the way it should be. :)
