    Interesting race, had no grip in my first stint on softs then lost loads of time in the pits, fuelled up tyres on, and the car just sits there for what feels like an eternity before the pit crew let my car go, that happened for my first 2 stops...not sure if it had anything to do with pit entry speed or not but either way it dropped me out for a podium finish...good battle with stiggy over my last stint for a super close finish.

    Yeah that's for entering the pits too fast. I got 10 seconds in my first stop after going full blast in to the pits.

    first 2 stops I reckon was 10secs each then maybe 1 more around 5 secs...I should have jumped merlin after the 1st stop but instead doubled the gap he was infront of me...not good but lesson learned..lol

    You missed last race and still lead championship right? Then it should be 3pp.

    I believe Monza was the last race for @Mini Stiggy and I for Ice Cold Racing. Race report was sent immediately after the race. Have fun at the Green Hell guys. :p It was a fun series, I might be back if it's convenient as stated before. Thanks to FGTA, @roberte, and @gtpcaine for a great series!

    Correct.
    Will be a shame to see you miss the finale. But thanks for joining, and we WILL see you next year! :lol:
    For that I think you need a -25pp penalty... :lol:

    Going to be a tense finish boyo ;)

    edit: As much as I can work it out in my head I need to win and you finish 3rd or lower best case scenario.

    Just to keep people in the loop. The data we have from Monza has been processed already, but we are still missing one or two race reports. If no-one has anything to add by 18:00 GMT tomorrow, the results will be posted. If you have incidents to report, but won't be able to review your replay by then, please let us know and we will delay the results.

    Also, before the finale, I will post a detailed list of who can still win the various titles and what they need to do to achieve it.

    Numbers have been a little low the past few races, and although we could potentially run in only one lobby for Nurb, I am going to keep the two classes split. I don't want a PRO driver messing up the AM title hunt, or vice versa.

    Plus we'd have to work out a time that everyone can do, since they start at different times.

    For some reason I thought we were doing only nordschleife.. so now I have the totally irrelevant practise time of 6:31.300

    Guess you'll have to try only schleife to know how we compare @rono_thomas ;)
