Great drama in lobby 1 ST Class as well. Battled wih berper in his Acura TSX most of the race when new guy in a boxster pulls over to let us by on the last lap, but the unexpected move threw my attention off just enough to bobble the lead and let the Acura pass me at the start of the last lap. Great clean racing to the end!

There are more, they just haven't qualified yet, but we should all do what we can to encourage them to come forward at this time.

Sorry to both Max and Loper for rear ending you. I made mental errors when braking and locked up into turn 1 for the first one and misjudged the spacing in the other. I had some damage early on that was affecting my stoping distances due to getting hit when Ferguson spun from whoever bumped him and again when a few other cars bounced off me in the first race. After I hit Lopar my car didnt register any additional damage but i lost it in the kink which may have been a controller issue cause my battery was dying and its a little older.

Again sorry guys, I feel bad for messing up your races.

what a waste of time. room 1 was set up wrong so I started at the back of the GS cars, by the time I got to Brizzo it was too late. After that, wrecked twice on my own, drove terribly.

Take me off the list, I don't want to do hour long races on monday evenings. Thanks anyway.

Seriously, was there anyone in lobby 1 who wants to explain why the qualifying order was not used to set the grid??? Pretty simple stuff guys.

I'm amazed that this has happened! Almost everyone is a league racing veteran here. I can't believe that just because I wasn't there the event fell apart! I mean, really?

I'm equally amazed that Diablo let this happen. How? Why wouldn't you just say, "hey guys, I'm not in the right grid position better back out and try again."

C'mon people, somebody, anybody, fill me in on all the ugly details, please.

Everyone was in parties. no game chat, so I was by myself. And we were told no restarts for anything. I was bit miffed to say the least.

We did a grid lap, it's just the grid settings weren't right so the order was mixed. Rod did everything right but that.

OMG! No one should turn off the mics until the start of the race! We've never turned off the mics until we were all ready to race! It sounds like everyone was so confident and familar with the routine that they didn't think they needed to hear the usual boring warnings and race details, and shut thier mics off prematurely!

Well, I'm very sorry not only to you Diablo but all those who were disadvantaged as a result of our over confidence. Sort of funny in a fraustrating back handed compliment kind of way. Here I thought there was a lack of organization and general confusion just because I wasn't there to hold everyone's hand, but in reality, everyone was so sure about how to run the race, they immeditaly unplugged their mic or went to private party. Wow. lol

Lobby 2 was excelent, cool start 5 way battle for the lead on GS. Roscoe had to hold attacks from Fastlane, Corwin, Ferguson and me, cars went off the track, they get back, and attack again.

I was attempting to pass the porsche but I was really tense with cars closing everywhere, i was breaking early to avoid hit anyone else, but on lap 3 or 4 i think was corbin who pushed me out. It´s OK, i dont know if i brake toooooo early or if he passes the brake zone, those first laps worth the ticket!!!

Good race everyone.

Yep knew it as soon as race started. I had the grid set to PI. I wanted to restart but all mics where off. It started me on pole and I let the 3 faster qualifyers by at the start but damage was already done.

I see. It's too bad that no one backed you up with a double check of the settings. It helps when everyone pays attention to what is going on.

Too often drivers tend to show up on the grid and leave their brains somewhere else. They aren't there to particpate as much as compete is the problem.

Participation requires something, --something like self-sacrifice, for the good of the series or other drivers. The sacrifice comes in the form of extra effort for your fellow driver, and time, over and above that which is spent personally practicing to compete. And even if no practice is needed, it would stand to reason that those drivers would have even more time to put forth some extra effort like double checking the lobby settings. The idea is that if you fall asleep at the wheel, or otherwise can't see the wisdom in making the experience more enjoyable by helping the event to be enjoyed by all, then mistakes like this will prevail, and people will ironically, get pissed off. The point is, what makes for a really good series, is when everyone thinks as though they are the host. Just lazily coming to race without a clue of what's going on is a disservice to everyone.

Thanks for your extra effort Rod, I promise I will have your back on the race settings the next time I race with you.

Funny this came up in lobby 1 cause on our grid lap cobra forgot to turn off compared lap times and right away we fixed. The real frustration i had was getting taken off guard by two seemingly early braking cars in which i feel is no ones fault but as someone else said the race at the beginning seemed like a 5 lap.sprint

Just to ilustrate, maybe it was the draft that affected the Nissan. I tried to brake just little before to get speed exit, and this was very close to my braking spot, the Audi is not a very handling car.

I dont know if that was in some kind of part my fault, i just know the race was very intense and that´s what i liked. No problem with anyone and hope race 2 will get as cool as this one.


(i´m the Audi S4)
