Yeah I saw that too but lets see.  I think it is being released UK time 25th, so maybe it will be available late for us.

Hopefully I'll be able to post my race recap Tuesday evening. I made it, but I'm now in Idaho with family for the eclipse and the internet isn't good enough to upload.

You should drive to where it is total!  There is a huge difference between a partial eclipse and a total one!

Not worth all that traffic. The TN governor said to treat today like a snow day because of all the tourists coming to town to view the eclipse.

Finally back home with good internet.  Here is my race video.  Once again, I'll give a recap so you can find where we were on track together.  Race starts at 1:36.  I pass Holes at 3:34.  I catch up to Paul and L'Acadien at 4:44 and chase Paul for a couple laps before he pulls away again.  Plasma passes me after 7:16 and Dark pulls out of the pits right behind me.  I avoid running into Plasma at 7:39 while Dark tries to pass me.  At 8:42, nick comes out to the pits just in front of me and we pass Paul.  Dark and I go to pass nick on either side, I went up the inside and Dark taps me at the exit of the hairpin, letting nick by as well.  At 9:57 Tron passes me.  At 12:59, Plasma comes out of the pits ahead of Pat and me and then we all end up in a crash at the hairpin.  L'Acadien passes me at 14:40.  At 15:53, Holes catches me and I let my teammate by.  Then at 17:45, HandyCabbage catches me and crashes out of the race as he tries to pass me.  I'm sorry if it was my fault (but I'm not sure if it was).  I didn't expect a go up my inside on the fast right hander going into the stadium section.  Zephyr was right behind him and passed me at the start of the next lap.  At 20:18, Megaman caught up to me and tried to pass me for the next several laps.  He eventually managed it at 28:07.  I then tried to pass him with DRS, but misjudged which side of the track he was going to and got squeezed on the outside.  I tapped him, lost control, and crashed.  Luckily, I made it to the end of the race without losing a place, even though I had no front wing.

Nice video. I really enjoyed it. I gotta say that megaman did make more than 1 move defending from when you crashed. Nice race

Nice video, nick passing you at the end was probably the biggest blessing you could have had, you didnt have to run an extra lap with no wing

Yeah.  I didn't even realize that he had passed me, so I was extremely surprised (and grateful) when I didn't have to do the last lap.

I enjoyed watching your video piboye. Unfortunate what happened at the end and Megamans video shows how messed up the indicator is in the game. You put up a good race tho. Do you race without any assists? You'll have the upper hand come next season

I do all of my practice without assists, but I use medium traction control.  I race as if I have no assists, but the medium traction control catches the times I add too much throttle.  Hopefully with more mechanical grip, I'll not over throttle it as much.
