    Yeah, that was scary. :eek: Would have been the 2nd most impressive crash I've caused between Tim and I. :sly: I'm working on getting our best crash vid snippet up for all to see/laugh at. :lol:

    Next time I decide to run the last lap on rims (hopefully there isn't a next time) I think I'll just pull over as it was probably unwise to put the other drivers at risk. I really just wanted to take my medicine like a man, but that is not worth risking other people's races. I'm sure I would have been blacked flagged in any series on the planet and had a flogging in the stewards office after the race. Luckily I know the stewards pretty well in this series so they were easy on me.

    Live and learn.

    I came up on you guys very fast and didn't see what transpired before... all I saw was Lefty trying to make a pass on the inside and not at a good spot or with any momentum for exit. My plan was to follow him with much better exit speed and then duck inside him at the U-turn. It kind of worked as I planned, but with a little more "rubbing" than I envisioned. :lol:

    I'll see if I can get that clip on video... hope I don't look like a jerk in it. I know I kept off of you completely, but did do some rubbing with Lefty... but I know he loves that sort of thing and he didn't defend the inside. :lol:

    Thank very much, you guys! :tup:

    Haha, LOL. I don't want to brag or anything but the following car starting from 07:50 was me. :sly:
    I was trying to overtake GTP_cicua. I was on newer tyres then him, so I think that's why I could keep a short gap pace like that there.
    It felt pretty easy for me there to brake a little early and still gain the loss made with my faster corner speed due to the frescher tyres. :)
    Watched the vid again and saw that I did give him a little tiny push at 09:01 :sly:


    I wouldn't mind adding a few kilo's to the car.
    Although, this isn't something the 3D3'ers could decide overnight.
    This requires a lot of testing on how much to add...

    Standard Clean OLR Rules Apply:
    • Unless otherwise specific all rules from the original WRS event apply.
    • Please read, and familiarize yourself with the track boundary guidelines specified in the original WRS event.
    • You are expected to drive clean at all times as if you are racing in the WRS. All participants are required to follow the GTPlanet Online Racing Rules & Guidelines.
    • 3D3 Race Stewards (who are taking part in race, but will review the replay) reserve the right to boot or invalidate the result of any driver from the Race Room for driving offensively. If you ignore any warnings from the stewards and are booted from the race room, you will not be allowed to participate in future 3D3 events.
    • 2 wheels on (or vertically in line with) the track at all times
    • Rumble/ripple strips are part of the track
    • Runoff areas are not part of the track
    • Limit your contact with walls or objects, visible or invisible
    • No hybrids
    • No cheating of any kind
    • Nothing that goes against the spirit of the rules
    • Passing and Blocking: Aggressive blocking is not permitted, but the driver in front has the right to choose his/her line and braking point and drivers behind should respect that line. Be especially careful when you are on older tires than the competition as the speed difference may be significant. These events are "for fun" so just play nice and take a conservative rather than an aggressive approach when possible.
    If for some reason you are unable to finish the race and need to stop:
    • Pull the car over off the track next to a wall and as far from the driving line as possible
    • Press the E-Brake
    • Then press Start
    • This will ghost your car and it won't allow it to interfere with the other drivers.
    Overall winner will be sent a prize (to be announced at race time).

    Good Luck,

    Yes and no. For starters, it can't be done with "arcade cars" (recommended)
    Though we could all buy the arcade cars each time they come up and simply prohibit tuning.:idea: But that might not allow ballast. Something to check.

    In any case the amount of ballast needed would vary with every combo, and would probably need tested each week. Honestly I don't think there's many combo's where 50/30/10kg ballast would be to much though.

    We're using the WRS leaderboard instead of live qualifying for this race to determine grid order and since you aren't in the WRS yet you'll have to run the offline laps the same as everyone else and submit your time/replay on this thread instead. You have until Monday @ 3:59 PM Pacific to get your best clean lap and submit your time with replay on the thread.

    Follow the WRS thread if you want to see what people are doing for T1 & T2. Basically pretend you are in the WRS and do everything the same as us only you submit your final time here on the thread on Monday and when the official results come out Monday @ 4:00 PM Pacific we'll announce the order.

    Any GTP_Registry driver who doesn't submit an official lap to the WRS will be in the same boat. If you/they can't/don't submit a time and post a replay then you can still race, but you start in the back of the grid.

    We're gonna get crazy this week, and allow you to pick from the 3 available WRC cars in Arcade mode:

    Ford Focus 508 PP, 310 HP
    Citroen 508 PP, 315 HP
    Suzuki 510 PP, 315 HP

    The event post above will be changed shortly, so please let us know which you'll be using. However, you can change your selection up to the last minute. :)

    :tup: Great idea Lucas.. no will anyone pick an alternate car?

    Note: You can use any of the 3 cars for the live 3D3 race, but if you submit your offline quali time directly to this thread (and not to WRS) you must use the Suzuki for your quali time as that's the only one allowed for the WRS event.

    Actually, you might be right. Dom, Cicua and I did some quick testing just a few minutes ago and the Ford looks dominant... if that holds true after more testing we may need to stick to one model. For now we'll just keep it tentative... everyone has to run the Suzuki for WRS anyway and we'll have a final decision by Sunday at the latest on the car choice for the race.

    Ford, and Suzuki and Citroen?
    Hmmm... Decisions...Decisions...;)

    Had a blast in the KazSpa races guys :tup:
    Great racing, as always.

    :tup: I think it could have helped with tire wear if the sound was on, but that's where I draw the (very thin) line. :D

    Regardless, I really need to work on tire wear - fast, as I'm developing a nasty trend:
    Mountaineering - Passed on 2nd last lap, finished 2nd :(
    Getting Groceries - Passed on 2nd last lap, finished poorly :(
    Monaco - Almost passed on last lap - Tim was catching, but Spun :)
    WedsForest - Speedy was gaining, but spun (for the 15th time or something :lol:), and Pekka was being charitable :tup:
    KazSpa - Passed on last lap - finished 4th :(

    Ouch :D

    Nice vid Speedy :tup:
    I believe we are accepting applications for A/V skilled types.
    Lucas is in charge of sorting resume's and setting up interviews.
    Recommendations are expected with the application :lol:

    Here's a video clip of the first stint battle in the NA event between Hydro, Dragon and myself with some Speedy or Gravitron filling up the rear view mirror much of the time (super speed over all the non passing stuff).

    [YOUTUBEHD]mY_ugIhb9lQ?Hd=1[/YOUTUBEHD]

    I didn't do too much passing but had a really good view of Hydro and Dragon going side by side for almost a full sector... and CSL driving away because of it.

    And that's something to note on high speed tracks like this. So many easy overtake spots, 99% of the time it's better to just let the guy on the inside go, as making a mistake, or running side by side (which is also a mistake) for a few turns, are the only ways to lose draft.
    Lots of time to be gained at Spa by bumpdrafting, even more to lose running side by side.

    It sounds like a F1 car in F Forward :D
    cool :tup:

    I do remember saying to Dragon:
    "This is crazy... man that's close, but we're letting Dominic get away !!!!!"

    It's hardly uncommon to see myself and Tim battling it out, it's practically expected.
    Here's a shot from our GT500 series.
    I'm in the Yellowhat, Tim's in the Calsonic. (lap 5 - I think)

    Not to be left out, Dragon's in the Red one :lol:

    Here's your 3D3's Funniest Videos (3FV) moment with a little extra tacked on the end.



    Camera is on Gravitron the entire time. At first he's passing and trading paint with Lefty and then after I get through that carnage chasing me with Speedy in tow.

    @highlights 2:
    LOL, it was the part where I couldn't avoid hitting Kevin just past Eau Rouge. I think he didn't even saw me coming.
    The speed difference was to big and I couldn't choose between left or right anymore, so I 'bumpdrafted' him. :lol:

    Will do, Kristof! :tup: Glad to see you join in.

    You don't have to pick a car now, it can even be last minute. We haven't fully committed to the "use all 3 cars" idea, as there seems to be some obvious benefits with the Focus, so we have some testing left to do.

    EDIT: You don't even have to own the car, in this case, the Recommended Garage in online lounges lets you pick from the Arcade Mode cars. And similar to Arcade Mode, no tuning.

    Poolhaas actually raced with us before in the British Invasion EU event. Hopefully the 2nd time around we manage to hook him. :sly:
