Hi All,

Due to an unforeseen increase in work travel, I will need to withdraw from this season as I will end up missing too many races and also take a seat that another, more available driver might be able to use.

Thanks for understanding!

I'd like to say that I believe Diego's driving needs some attention brought to it, that's 4 races in a row he's done something "aggressive". But if that's how he wants to race, then that's how we'll race.

If there's a problem, it needs to be addressed via the protest process.
Always save your replays.
I had massive issues last night with my internet.
Usually I would save mine in case a review is needed.

You can use the protest system if you think he behaviour needs penalty.  That’s how we calm down drivers.

I have to say that last night's race was pretty brilliant in terms of the racing itself. From my perspective anyway. Very early on was in a heated battle with Shawn Duhamel and Donald Olsen of "VHR Racing". I felt like the meat in a ham sandwich and was being devoured by these two, BUT, they raced me so super clean. It's the best battle I've had in a very long time on iRacing and in this league where previously (past seasons) and unfortunately, I was being plagued by aggressive drivers such as what's being reported above.

But yeah, super racing last night guys. ultimately my one traction loss into the chicane and two self spins at the top of the hill before the front stretch placed me out of contention with Shawn and Don but it was great racing none the less. Thanks for the clean racing guys. I really enjoyed that.

Cheers.

At least you got to race.
If it was not for bad luck .....
Kept getting Grey Out's in my Valve.
Never happened before.
Lost connection before Q.
Then I make my final weight loss and come back to see no Grid info.
Reboot , blah blah blah. Get back in 5 laps down with no Sim Commander functions.
Reboot and come back to no audio.
Finally get that fixed and just shy of making the 1/2 point I get disconnected again.
Just signed a new contract with the culprit---AT&T seems there has been an intermittent issue for the last week.
Like I said, I will always save the replay when I'm able. Just don't depend on it.

Michael, knowing your history of the last tournament, where you were disqualified in Montreal for a major misconduct, I think you should be more careful with this type of comments.
If there is something to report, there is a procedure in the regulation.

Hola. Escribiré en español ya que lamentablemente no manejo el inglés. Pero quisiera expresar algunas palabras para quienes se hayan sentido perjudicados con algunas de mis maniobras. Soy relativamente nuevo en el mundo del SimRacing, no llevo más de 6 meses y estoy recién aprendiendo a manejar la presión que significa correr con pilotos del más alto nivel.

Aún así creo que fue una buena carrera. Una lastima el contacto con Abner, le pido disculpas... no fue mi intención hacer contacto, llegamos a centímetros de distancia al frenado y paso lo qué pasó. Los comisarios tendrán la tarea de analizar la maniobra y decidir la intencionalidad de la misma. Y aplicar sanción en caso que sea pertinente.

Mucho éxito para todos en lo que queda de campeonato. Estaré ausente en las próximas 3 fechas por fuerza mayor. Ya que asistiré al Mundial de Karting RotaxMax en Italia representando a mi país.

Gracias a todos los que hacen posible este maravilloso campeonato y espero poder volver para la Ronda 8.

Saludos
Diego

Yeah I did donuts in the pitlane one race so? Don't see how that affects anyone's race. Other than that my "history" was always fighting hard for the top spot, and I bet no one had any complaints.

So I can protest even though I'm not involved?

You seem to have a bad memory Michael ... do I remember the full action?

"The stewards investigated a collision between Michael Diaz and Pablo Uribe. Into the braking zone at turn one, Michael Diaz failed to establish sufficient overlap and contacted Pablo Uribe.
The stewards investigated contact between Pablo Uribe and Michael Diaz in the final chicane. Into the braking zone, both cars were side by side. Pablo Uribe had inside position and left plenty of space. Michael Diaz turned into Uribe and created contact. Given that Diaz had a black flag slowdown"

Of course, the icing on the cake was the stupid donuts maneuver in the pits who cost you the DQ.

3 Violations on the same race, I don't think it's very appropriate behavior to talk about others. I repeat, the tournament has a regulation and if you have any problem with another driver you can make a report.

I always say best thing to do is to submit a protest. The process will only work if it is used. 

Shouting people out on the public forums, especially by name, is lame to say the least. 

Use the protest system. I have used it and feel it’s a fair system with the stewards in this league.

I seem to remember every other incident due to netcode being dismissed except the one involving your teammate. But it's funny how you want to highlight one negative of an otherwise spotless season for myself, just cause I called out your friends dirty driving. I hope the rest of the league leadership is less biased. Once again my stupid donuts didn't damage anyone's car, didn't push anyone of track. Seguimos?

I did so last race, but can I protest something I wasn't involved?

I think you are exceeding the tolerable line by insinuating that I can have partial handling in the league. I have only referred to facts and not opinions. The one who started this topic in the forum was you, implying that a Driver is dirty (you reported it last week, and the stewards declared a career contact only).

Now, I can give you my subjective opinion. I think your claim is a simple cry because a driver arrived who put you in trouble and won most of the one-on-one battles agains you.

And I repeat, for the 3rd time, there is a regulation to comply in case of incidents, and anyone is free to report and it will be the stewards (I do not belong to that group in case you had any doubt) who will decide.
