    Thanks Ian, I'm gonna try that, using the analogue as a gear shift is like having a Sequential gear box lol

    I use L2 and R2 as side mirrors, and I find that more important to race cleanly than to use them for gearing.

    Mirrors on a wheel not easy, them little buttons hard to find.

    Pad setup was
    Left stick turning
    Right stick look left and right
    L1 gear up R1 gear down
    L2 throttle R2 brake

    Arrow buttons
    Forward horn, In meganes I changed this to flash lights
    Left look left right look right
    Back look back

    X and O group of buttons I left alone

    It was funny when gt6 come out, I was racing online and did not set arrows buttons up.
    Went to look right and and ended up turning and putting him in a wall.
    He kicked me out for being dirty lol

    My controller setup is
    R2 - Throttle
    L2 - Brake
    L1 - Rear View
    Left Thumbstick - Steering
    I don't pay attention to handbrake or shift.

    Did around a 36.5 in the Hyundai. The blind corners of Dingle Dell and Sheene are really tricky to get right.

    It's so easy to get those corners wrong. I struggle with them too.

    I love this track! I did a 37.4 after a few laps and I'm sure I can go quicker if I get all the corners right.

    Thanks Ian for the config, my driving it alot smoother now and lap times are quicker (did a 1.30.4 after 2 laps on motegi this morning and I know what I need to do to go quicker, 29.8 is achievable). I've got used to the new controls but now and then I shift up instead of down lol

    Delayed Time Penalties:
    @mrbrendon999 - a 5-second time penalty will be applied to your next BTCC race where you do not finish last. Please calm down your driving a bit, and remember the rules regarding run-off use. I know 10th place is important to you, but achieve it fairly and within the regulations. :tup:

    DRIVERS ON A ONE-RACE BAN:
    @CptMadBean - 8 penalty points. Race bans do not count as drop scores.

    Drivers on Probation:
    @Harsk100 - if your connection is not improved next week you will not be allowed to race any more this season.

    --

    Please PM me if you want your penalties explained to you. You have 24 hours from the time of this post to appeal your penalty/penalties should you wish to.

    Points up shortly :tup:

    The pit window is mentioned in post #2 on this thread along with the amount of laps. Also on race night the pit window is stated in the room title. ;)

    All drivers/teams/manufacturers with two drop scores remaining have had their first ones taken away.

    All to play for at the finale :tup:

    EDIT: Murica should have 357 points in the Teams, not 367.

    So I hope I can leave you all in high spirits and hopefully on the podium :D
    It's been a great first ever gtp series/race and I hope to see you all on track in the future :cheers:

    Hm I really screwed up my no penalties this season. I would blame the car if I really had fair proof (another driver who shows alot in it). The scirocco has been an utter piece of crap though, and I have not been keeping a level head about it, been too irrational and pushing too hard. And sadly that's ruined my no penalties, been through 4 series (2BTCC, 1RM, 1 NASCAR) without getting any. I'd like to say a big apology to Skeng (someone tag him for me please), for accidents in both races at Silverstone, and too anyone else I may have tapped or anything. If I can't keep my car on straight and narrow or out of sides of your cars at Brands, I shall probably just reduce my pace and stick with it. Next season will be different for me, gentle, speedy, Stream Tuning/Stream Gaming- Brendon Shadow Cooper is coming back strong ;)

    That's a real shame, you've been a strong driver this season and I was looking forward to battling with you next season. Well thank you for taking part, it has been fun and a pleasure. :)

    I've not seen anything this bad before either. I think that the stewards have had to be rather tough this season in order to make drivers calm down a bit and be more careful. Generally the penalties are due to drivers being over-enthusastic and caising collissions with the car that they're trying to overtake instead of waiting and picking the right moment to make a move. Silly errors really, but ones that could have been avoided.

    I guess that it just goes to show how competitive we are and desperate to earn as many points as possible each round.

    Overall though, we do have some fantastic drivers in the championship and its great to see such close competitive racing going on throughout the field. :tup:

    Well I am reporting myself not sure that helps, I may of got away with a few maybe.
    but I support fair driving, just them little mistakes from pushing ott brings pens.

    My biggest problem over taking I just not good at it.
    Others can pick me off so easy, go a little wide and there past.
    They go a little wide so do I ffs.

    This vid my last report to rolo on my driving:



    I just thought I could out brake ingo, but it I was wrong.
    My defence was Skeng was not to far behind and the car in front was slower than me at times.
    Just not round that bend but I think both us on there using other lines in thinking.


    Pm rolo he will let you know why, anything to do with pens pm him.

    To be honest quite a fair number of those came at Spa - Round 1 was actually pretty bad, especially Race 2.

    In fairness generally the racing is very good - I think another reason may be that a lot more gets reported these days as well.

    --

    Just to clarify regarding bans, by 'one-race' I really mean 'one-round', since you can't participate in either of the night's races. You can spectate if there's room, but you can't participate.

    I'll be clearer on that in future.

    This. :tup:

    Trying to out brake someone can be dangerous if you've got the timing slightly wrong and it also relies on some give and take by both drivers too.

    I try to race tactically if possible, I enjoy trying to out wit the car ahead, but I make mistakes too and usually that's when I'm trying to outbrake someone into a turn.
