Sorry for the late notice but I am going to be resigning myself from this league starting this race. Please do know that this is not due to any personall issues with any of you. After taking some time I have come to the decision to dedicate my time to other places that have sparked my interest and competitive spirit (dumb wording I know but I couldn't think of anything better).

I hope you will respect my decision and I hope the best for you all and I will still always be up for some fun online racing whenever I am available.

Was so pumped and was really looking forward to this race until I noticed that it was next week?! Break week for what exactly??? Because if it has got anything with thanksgiving to do that'd be proper BS considering we are an European league and we don't celebrate it here. We don't have any Americans in the league what I know of and missing out on one or two guys isn't such a big issue (we've always got reserve drivers)? It is what it is I guess but it doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever..

It's a pity you're leaving, and I hope you have fun elsewhere :)

Also, I made a topic about having a classic car race or something else during the break week over here : http://precisionracingleague.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=1285

P3 qualy - Personal best!

Race - DNF!

So right when the lights went out I got an excellent start. I think Alex in front of me had laggy lights or something so I had to go around the outside of him. I think that his lights went out just when I was gonna turn in for the corner so he hit my rear and I got punted into the wall. Racing incident in my eyes with this laggy game - you don't know what's gonna happen next!

Oh well, off to Austria next week I guess.

Also, 13 people turning up isn't very fun in my eyes, hoping we'll be a full lobby for the first time this season.

Did a slow qualy, wasn´t really pushing it so got a P10.
For the race I got hit on the start by ztikes and had to stop for a new front wing. Selected mediums to go to the end but the engineers decided to put me on the supersofts cause they probably wanted to prank me ;)
Anyway because I saw everyone DNFing i just decided to go for slow and safe laps and score some good points. P4 in the end.

Sorry about that mate! Not much I could have done either, got rammed, didn't have any control and had no time to react, and then as quick as I knew it I was in a barrier..

Had an average qualy, the conditions were tricky for me, so I decided to play it safely, ended up in P8.

Right at the start I got a huge hit from behind, sending me into the wall, losing my whole front wing. But the most painful part comes now.

So I went straight to the pits, but THANKS TO THE CODEMASTERS' GENIUS GAME PROGRAMMING (especially at online :evil:  ) I could never make that pit stop, cause I was stuck. Video below.

It really hurts as it could have been an easy point scoring, maybe a P6, maybe a P5 or P4, who knows.  :cry:

Well if the majority really really want another go then i´d happily race, but I dont feel like a redo. Partly because I scored points and because DNF´ing is your own fault(usually ;)) and partly because almost nobody likes this track.

No, leave it at that I'd say. Let's get a much more enjoyable Austrian GP. :)
