    @Speedy6543 thanks for hosting the room...:tup:
    @MadMax congrats on your win! :tup::tup:

    I enjoyed it very much and I felt way better today than I did at the WW event. Static IP and port forwarding on the PS4 looks to have solved all my problems...:)

    Had to really fight for my spot.
    Only by short pitting I could gain a spot on Quentin.
    Great racing as usual!!! :gtpflag:

    Was a great race tonight but I have to say that racing against Larry @Bass Addict who I couldn't see either on track or the leader board was a bit weird. Whilst I didn't enjoy the TT version the OLR was a complete blast so thanks to the OLR team for hosting these :cheers:

    I was able to follow you for a bit but you were too fast...:)

    By the way, you need to update your sig with D2...:tup:

    The room was doing some bizarre things tonight Larry, just a glitchy night methinks....Even though I couldn't see you thanks for getting between me and @Speedy6543 at one point so I could make a pass on him...how much did we say that was worth? :lol:

    OMG that's the funniest thing I've seen in along while. None of what you were seeing was going on from my perspective and the damage on my car is horrendous but to me I ended up with nothing but dead flies on the front.

    Those laps where Larry and I were side by side were hilarious..

    Everyone that watches that will be thinking that Argon is a real dirty racer but I honestly had a completely different view that I wish I had saved now

    Thanks again guys, I hope i didn’t get in the way, I tried to time my chicane laps to let faster cars through, @Bass Addict i probably held you up a bit, after a while I did manage to maintain the gap to the car in front but unfortunately it was 9 sec by then. Once I realised I wasn’t making it on fuel and stopped again its was 26 I think. I seemed to be early on the brakes into the hairpins I think but if I left it later I didn’t get around them!

    I was actually laughing out loud watching that, I thought you'd strapped the two cars together like Chris and Matt did in Top gear this season! :lol:

    btw do you guys usually use mics during the races? I've got one but cant help thinking it would be distracting

    I mute the mic during races and only turn it on when necessary...I enjoy listening to the banter before and during the race.

    I use mine quite a bit but tend to go quiet during the race as most of us do. Useful to have it though :tup:

    Pekka (Mad Max) ran away with it. He was so fast that he took some extra runs through the moto chicane and still won :D
    Kevin (EDK) had great pace but lost a lot of time in the opening laps. He clawed his way back to a podium finish :bowdown:
