    Report filed. Ascari was a fun track to race, though I made a lot of mistakes. I think most of us did a few. On to Monza with that darn PP penalty :lol:

    Unfortunately I haven't had time to go through all the data yet, so results from Ascari will be posted next week at some point.

    Due to the Nurburgring 6hours, we will be dropping Red Bull ring from the schedule and delaying round 8 by two weeks, meaning there will only be two rounds remaining.

    Round 8 - Monza will take place on the 29th November, and Round 9 - Nurburgring shall remain on the 13th December.

    I appreciate Monza will then clash with thanksgiving in the USA, but there are more drivers participating in the 6 hour than those who would potentially miss the delayed race, so I have to go with the schedule that suits the majority.

    Pew, that might have been a lucky break for me. Would have been very close if I could make the red bull race or not. :p Really looking forward to the last two races. Tracks that I'm really comfortable with. :)

    It's a real shame that a race has to be dropped as its dropped people right out of the championship fight. :grumpy:

    Couldn't we have an extended race for double points or a double race weekend?

    Because I had to miss Ascari, do I still have my PP penalty for Monza? Would like to know so I can get testing (assuming I can race anyway).

    If you didn't have a reserve you will lose pp penalty yes.

    Gotta get through me first! Can't wait for Monza, it's one of my favorite tracks! (for its high speed nature)

    Just to keep you guys updated. I am currently without internet at home. Our whole street has lost it due to some idiot crashing into the junction box! They said that our service should be resumed by 24th Nov! It has also knocked out the phones at work so can't use their wifi either.

    If there are any changes i will let you know as soon as i can, but Ascari results will be fairly late.

    Right, I finally have my internet back. Time to finish off Ascari results -- a few incidents which still need checking, so should have the results done by the weekend. Sorry for the delay.

    Because your reserve won, so the car receives the penalty. I had it when Nin won for me at Suzuka.

    EDIT

    Or was he reserve for RCB, I forgot now its been too long! :lol:

    I'm confused. . I think you forgot to add points for race 7 in the standings.

    edit: scratch that, my phone was bringing up the old file for some reason..

    edit2: We will drop our worst result right? Because I've been counting on that to be able to still take this. ^^
