    Jag pushed me off track in race 3, real light tap but I parked the car up.
    Got a new car as put numbers on the other one, respray not take them away.

    New car spot on but I added 1up rims, just meant I was fighting the car all the time.
    I could get 49.7ss but I was low 50s in the old car, mid 50 in the new one.
    Some luck maybe low 50s, I'll take a drop score here today Rolo thanks lol

    Madbean.....

    Go into the garage (where you can add the racing number) and unselect the square in the menu. ;) I found it the other day.

    Which tune were you using on the yellow car?

    You did touch the grass on exit though

    Can't say on here ;)

    Only down to the little push that sent my car that way, don't worry I'm not reporting it.
    I've watched the replay and it's a racing thing really had alot worse bumps.

    My car not braking right not going round bends right and to top it all not coming out on power right.
    My wheel and me took a beating tonight just holding the car on track

    In Race 3, I think I took the old saying "parking the bus" extremely literally with my ultra defensive driving to salvage 4th place. Then again, my Merc is a bit of a tank.

    No, you can't change your car once you've raced in another.

    Glad that you've got it sorted mate. :tup: It was a shame that you missed Brands, overtaking was difficult, you could have done quite well there.

    Red Bull Ring will be interesting. I haven't even been on that track yet, the last time I raced that was probably back in '97. I wonder whether or not I'll remember any of it.

    Drivers on Probation:
    @1996mikey2412 - Due to your driving standards in your opening meeting, you have been placed on probation for your next round. If your current driving standards continue at your next meeting, you will be removed from the series.

    @gtp_Tenderly - 6 penalty points. One more warning means a one-round ban.

    @Iceman220 - You need to improve your performance next time or we're going to have to ask you to leave. Do 10 laps of practice at least or something, it will do wonders for your lap times and track knowledge. We can't have a driver being unclassified in every race due to continual spins - it endangers other drivers and could ruin their races.

    @Siggers - 6 penalty points. One more warning means a one-round ban.

    @rolo912011 - 6 penalty points. One more warning means a one-round ban.


    Delayed Time Penalties:
    @1996mikey2412 - a 20-second time penalty will be applied to the next race in which you finish but do not place last.

    ----

    Please PM me if you want your penalties explained, or to appeal. You have 24 hours from the time of this post to appeal penalties.

    Points up shortly. :tup:

    Thanks mate, hopefully my dc rate will improve now :nervous:

    Really annoyed I missed it. Brands is my favourite track as well, I go there a few times a year

    RBR is gonna be tough. I've only driven round it once (I think the VW VGT Seasonal?) It flows really well and has some interesting corners but I can see it being tough for the FR guys, the 2nd hairpin in particular is very slippy

    This sounds like a good series, and times and dates are good for me. I'd be interested in entering the remaining rounds as an independent/privateer.

    Yeah, i've been round in my Jag and the kerbs on the first corner drop away slightly and make my car loose.

    The second corner, i recommend not to hit the yellow stump, i did once and next thing i know i was facing backwards.

    The penultimate corner, it's important that you don't brake half way into the corner, understeerundersteerundersteerundersteer.

    Just a little advice for FR cars

    Excellent! I've been waiting for someone to try one of those out, to see how it fits with the field.

    How would you describe your skill level/pace? All is welcome so long as you're clean.

    I really like RBR, it's such a good track, but it's like willow at the moment, touch the kerbs and your gone, go off wide and there's no grip, it's like ice

    I'm not time-trial quick, but I like to think I'm solid in the race. And clean fun is the only fun. :)

    This post was a lie. I really hate RBR, much more than I did Willow. I will do terrible. But I guess its a good thing we have a week break. Give's me more time to practice.
