Last race was again with the MRT but this time we hit town.
So less curbs to flip the car, but it stayed the MRT so ... no Reverse Gear...
No reverse means .. Safety car has to come out and so it did a couple of times.


We also had a lot of incidents where the same racer, Salatoimik, was involved over and over again.
This led to a lot of frustration with some racers .. who started to use words that can't be allowed.
As Salatoimik is involved in so many incidents he receives an additional penalty of a forced drive through during the first lap of the first stint of next race. He starts that race in the last position and does not qualify.

Some have to realise we are here for fun fun and again FUN !!!!!
So no frustration is needed !!  Don't drive as your life depends on it !!
Guys who like to play this kind of realistic race simulators also like to watch good motor sport.
Then they must also have seen races where a faster car stays a large number of laps behind the car in front of him because it is not possible to pass him in a safe way.. And it is better to collect those points behind that racer then risking to end the race with no points and two frustrated racers ! 

Also realise chatting during the race is NOT allowed.  Only FUNCTIONAL chatting is allowed during the safetycar.  So for next races rule 11.7 .. will be applied very often !


11.7 : 5 sec penalty  per chat message during the race is added to your finishing time.

So what are the most common errors racers make during the race :

  • Never start overtaking when you already know it can't be done safely
  • Leave ENOUGH room in the corners, don't close the corner in overtaking situations.
  • Leave enough room during the safety car, don't go pushing around.
  • Respect the blue flag
  • First corner incidents
We also had some quitters this time.. realise you can collect already 2 points when driving a least 80% of the race..  Quitting or spectating only results in throwing away those points you were fighting for so heavily during the race.

I will stop this intro now with a very good tip :
If you drive someone off track or cause an incident then WAIT for that car  !!!  This only shows respect to the other car and gives a signal to him this was a racing incident and not a forced error.  Also the admin will mostly not penalize incidents where the racer waits for the pushed off racer.  

But let start with the race review ...

Race 1 - 9 Laps:

0:47.38 - Lex tries to pass Ago76 on the inside at turn 3. Ago76, possibly,
does not know that Lex is to his right and makes his entrance into turn 3,
which causes Lex to clip Ago76 in the right rear and send Ago76 flipping.
Lex gets nosed into the wall at the corner, but Lex pushes in the clutch and
lets his car roll backwards away from the wall. But Lex also backs into
oncoming traffic. While Lex is rolling backwards, Fridorik tries to go
around Lex, but has to widen his turn to avoid Lex. Then Salatoimik bumps
Fridorik as he is trying to go around Lex, which causes Salatoimik's car to
slide and flip over. SC called... racing incident

the wall. His car does not tip over, so he waits and rejoins when it is safe
to do so... racing incident

Zupi is braking and hits Zupi in the rear, causing Zupi to flip his car. But
it lands back on its wheels, and Zupi is able to continue. Zupi loses 1
position... 10sec penalty for Salatoimik

11:12.69 - Hanziboy and Ernest are having a drag race to see who gets to
turn 1 first. Then, Ernest starts turning left at the 50m sign and runs into
the side of Hanziboy, causing Hanziboy's car to spin around. Hanziboy waits
until it is safe to rejoin the race. Hanziboy lost 3 positions... 20sec
penalty for Ernest

11:36.89 - Lex loses control going through turn 7 and slides into the wall,

the GREEN has not been given yet. After Lex goes through turn 2 he seems to
steer directly towards the entrance of the parking lot and hits the aarmco,
which spins his car around and he ends up backed into the aarmco on the
opposite side of the track. Lex then says something not very polite to
