Race 1, had a great start being careful and was in 4th place. Juha then tried to go up the inside of me at the Eastern Loop, he must have been on the grass, and we collided with me getting heavy damage and Juha rolling. From then on it was just drive around until the finish 7th.
Sorry for that. I was indeed on the grass. My car wasn't much good after that.
I didn't do much better in race two, except I didn't crash this time around.
Had a disaster of a 1st lap in race 1 but managed to come back and finish 6th. Must apologize to David Sabre for spinning him and as I felt bad I felt it was the sporting thing to slow and let him take the position back if he got going again.
Race 2 was much better and got a good start to move up to 3rd but made a mistake in the 2nd to last corner which let Richard Wilks through but managed to hold on and finish 4th so was pretty chuffed to finish both races considering I'm still getting to grips with the mod and Automobilista.
Big thanks must go to Jonatan for letting me know about the series as I loved watching the Super Touring era in real life growing up as a kid
No problem Ryan. If that was at turn 1 I think that it was when I got a pop-up message about something to do with my soundcard , I've not had that before, I had to click on AMS to get back in control therefore I wasn't noticing what was happening on track. Thanks anyway.
I want to thank Ryan Walker for the setup link. The setup was great! Shame on me, I was not so well on a fast and narrow track.
No problem. I need to mess around with the setup as there is still some things I want to mess around with like dampers but I will be posting some base setups for the next round at Phillip Island for the BMW.
Teams Championship after round 1 & 2 - Lakeside International Raceway
Aren't the standings to that wrong? CPW has nos core for R2 for example?
Besides that: I used a setup from STW as a base, maybe I should've tried Ryan's setup. But I was too busy checking if my Twitch stream is gonna work out.
Missed out on possible top three position in the first Q session as I kept running into people at the wrong place, the last sector.
I started 5th instead, but somehow made my way into 3rd where I remained until the end. Somehow took the fastest lap of the race
The 2nd Q session was better, I managed a good lap that put me 2nd.
A great start made me jump into the lead, which I had to defend against a hard-charging Steve that had the legs on me for most of the race, but couldn't quite find the gap to re-take first place. I have to say though that in my mirrors, it appeared as if his BMW was glued to the track and left nearly each turn at max possible speed and I had to concentrate hard to answer that performance.
My gearing was probably off, my 5th gear seemed to top out faster than his so he always got very close to catching me into T1.
Steve should be a serious contender for the title if he keeps that up and attends most events.
Yes, but it didn't outright state as such on the definition for the team championship. I thought it counts at every round for all teams that have more than one car in the championship(as per the entry list), not specifically for every race(not just round, as Alberto was there for R1)
It is our interpretation of the rules as the CPW team for example only fielded one car for most of the championship but with different drivers, similarly to that of FastWay and the HVE teams that fielded only one car for most of the championship.
We adapted it like this so we'd make sure to have a nice big grid with different cars so we'd see as many as possible sign up in a car that they would like and hopefully stick with for the rest of the championship.
Well that was 2 great races,1st race got jump on ryan at the start and lead into turn 1,then just paced myself till the end for the win.2nd race David got jump on me at start after i had too much wheelspin,then spent whole race on Davids bumper but could not get room to pass,David were you running a low final gear as your rear was very twitchy every corner exit ?.but great fun in both races.
