    There are by far not enough BMW's on the roads! :lol:

    Will try :D Unfortunately no Ti, "only" 102bhp :dunce: But it's a compact, so I'm sure this thing can be driven sideways :mischievous:


    That actually made me laugh.. Firstly because it doesn't have too much power.. and secondly because you're simply right! :lol: It's just a matter of time, haha :lol:

    Just to update everyone on the state of results etc, we are currently reviewing the final incidents that were reported last night, and they will be solved tonight. Results will be posted tomorrow night when I get home from work.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Round 5 -- Le Mans
    Results and Race Report

    [​IMG]
    Qualifying
    Qualifying was extremely close in the PRO room, with @Mini Stiggy clinching pole by just 0.023 from PASM, who was a further 0.064 behind. AM was a little further spread out, which saw an excellent performance by @redbullrider20 to take pole. Congratulations to both, and congratulations on the bonus points. Qualy was certainly good for ICR!
    The full list of qualifying results can be found HERE.
    [​IMG]
    Incident List - PRO
    Driver: GTP_Caine
    Incident: Improper Pit Entry
    Lap: 8
    Result: First warning for improper pit entry.

    Driver: GTP_PASM
    Incident: Contact with Nik_Makozi
    Lap: 7
    Result: Warning for contact.
    Notes: Looking at the replay, it was a fairly heavy bump, but somehow both cars avoided taking damage. Had damage occurred, you would have received a penalty for this, but as Nik was unharmed and the incident cost you time, we have decided to give you a warning only. The bump at Silverstone from Nik into the Vale chicane was nowhere near as heavy, but did result in damage, hence the penalty in that instance.

    Driver: RCB929
    Incident: Contact with MerlinRichards
    Lap: 1
    Result: Avoidable Contact. +25s added to race time (stop + 10).
    Notes: This was a very tough call to make, and we got several opinions on this. However, at turn one, your car veers to the right into the path of Merlin causing both cars damage. Merlin had left a considerable margin on the inside of the corner to allow you space, but contact was still made. From the replay your cars makes a very weird change of direction when passing over the curb, which did baffle us a little, it didn't look like a typical oversteer correction, but it didn't look deliberate either. Regardless, Merlin held a solid line and left space yet was still collected.

    [​IMG]
    Incident List - AM
    Driver: xNikodemusx
    Incident: Improper Pit Entry
    Lap: 6
    Result: First warning for improper pit entry.

    Driver: Nail-27
    Incident: Improper Pit Entry
    Lap: 19
    Result: Second warning for improper pit entry. +15s added to race time (drive through).

    Driver: Nail-27
    Incident: Improper Pit Exit.
    Lap: 20
    Result: First warning for improper pit exit.

    Driver: GTOS_Polarbear_
    Incident: Contact with STOCKY8A1 and Rono_Thomas
    Lap: 1
    Result: Avoidable contact. +25s added to race time (stop +10). Reprimand for third AC awarded.
    Notes: This was quite clumsy into turn 1. There was a large gap infront of you, Stocky was being careful to avoid incident when you crash into his rear, which ultimately led to contact with Rono after you oversteer coming out of the gravel. Certainly seen worse incidents at the starts, but your actions compromised the race of another driver.

    Driver: GTP_HAMILTONR
    Incident: Contact with Redbullrider
    Lap: 2 (Arnage)
    Result: NFA
    Notes: We were going to give an AC for this, but I double checked with redbull about the incident. According to the replay you bump redbull quite hard, and it shows double front damage received by yourself and double rear damage to redbull. However, redbull has no knowledge of the incident and stated it didn't effect him, so 'no harm no foul' applies.

    Drivers: GTP_HAMILTONR + Redbullrider20
    Incident: Contact
    Lap: 2 (Ford Chicane)
    Result: NFA
    Notes: This was a little clumsy from both of you to be honest. Redbull was focused on the car ahead and didn't spot Hamilton up the inside. But it was a high risk move from Hamilton at a narrow part of the circuit with the car ahead already in a battle for position. At the point redbull turns in, we didn't think Hamilton had a sufficient amount of his car alongside redbull, but by that point it was too late to back out. Please be aware, when battling with another car you will probably be losing time to the car behind and they may try an opportunistic move. Likewise, when attacking a car which is in a battle, be aware they may be too busy looking ahead to spot you.

    Yeah, the bump into Mulsanne on lap 7 was very regrettable. I will try to avoid that from happening again.

    I will only be available to reserve for 1 more round this season and that is the final round at the Nurburgring (haven't driven there in ages).
