    I'm not as quick as Skeng. I know my place. :lol:

    I've just had a relatively incident free season and a damn good car. :)

    I just think when in a bit of a scrap or little errors made the FF cars get away with more.
    Plus there then staight line speed, bends never easy place to over take.

    Was the Volve the wrost car to drive?
    Ian still won in it, some how lol

    It's a good job that the races are only 20 minutes each, we'd be battling away all night if it was an endurance. :lol:
    Err, I can't really recall anything that was major, sure we've touched and rubbed here and there, but generally speaking we do give each other 'just' enough room. I'd say that we've not had an incident with each other all season. We're certainly rivals though. :mad:

    I agree, the FF cars do have an easier time of it when things go pear shaped. An FF car is easier to straighten up, and FR is a much different beast in that respect. I think that people are generally more careful when following an FR car though, or at least they should be....actually they should be careful no matter what they're following. :lol:

    That Volvo was pretty nasty. Sure it was fast, but every corner I approached I feared getting hit up the rear because it didn't have the 'turn-in' that I wanted, so I had to go so much slower into the corner. It was a case of tip-toe into the turn to maintain grip otherwise I'd miss the apex by a mile and then timing it just right to get onto the power. Too early on the throttle and I'd run wide on the exit, too late and I wouldn't have the slipstream of the car ahead. That Volvo taught me quite a lot.

    Considering how fast the Volvo was down the straight, I only had 2 fastest laps in that season. :( In comparison, the Renault is much better, I should have used the Renault last season too. :D

    I started out with ff cars in btcc but now i prefer rwd.

    Ff is easier though but rwd is more rewarding.

    Congratulations Ian!

    My opinion: Mikey, that's a shame that you're banned from Integra Series...

    Rolo: Why is Mikey Banned from Round 1?

    Congratulations to PAR and to Renault!

    Congratulations Canyon Drifter!

    A big thank you to all 29 drivers who took to the track this season. It's been without doubt the longest season from start to finish, owing to the various delays put in the way. Thanks to PD for messing up the balance of performance after one round!

    Congratulations to all title winners, hope to see as many of you as possible back for the second Integra series! :cheers: :tup:

    He picked up four warnings over the season (8 penalty points), and that, as per the rules, is an automatic one-round ban. Bans earned in the final round of a season are carried over to the next in order to ensure the final rounds are as clean as any other.

    Yes, but did he drove bad? Or he didn't follow the OLR Guidelines?

    I'm only banned from round 1 of the Integra's and because I have 8 penalty points (4 warnings) and you get a one-round ban after 8 penalty points

    I didn't mean for the whole championship but for 1st round of Integra Series. If you pick up plus 8 points, there will be 16 penalty points total (8 warnings) which will give you an a series-ban. If you get a series-ban, you won't be able to join the rest of the series until the following season has started.

    I did cause a crash with Stig in race 2, that's how I got a warning most likely

    That is indeed how you earn warnings and/or time penalties in the series. As in any series.

    I'd love to see you win a race. It would be one of those Jean Alesi stories.

    If there's room in the lobby you can come in and spectate, but no entering the track.
