    Guys, please update your registrations for the EU race. We are getting close to one full room.
    We try to be nice but if someone shows up on a race day without registering and we end up with 17 they might not get to race.

    Question, I wasn't registered for the WRS before I submitted an entry for this event, however, I am registered now but missed the deadline to submit a lap for the Time Trial. I'd still like to participate, but I'm unsure how to proceed.

    I'm unsure about getting home for the EU race tonight, so haven't registered yet. If I make it, I'll understand if there is no room left.

    I'm home and made it, so I'll sign up. But I don't want to take your spot - but lets see if it is full first.

    At the moment yes. We have 16 registered and some people dropped out. But if we get more we’ll do more rooms

    Another brilliant race with a room full of brilliant people, it just doesn't get any better.

    Qualy went well and I placed 2nd behind @MadMax but not by much. The race got under way and I was keeping up with Pekka fairly well but couldn't figure out his strategy. After he went into the pits on lap 6 I figured he wasn't fuel saving which suggested I had the pace to keep up with him. Then he threw me a curve ball and on lap 10 or 11 he went into the pits again. I can only think that he double stinted his tyres as they really fall off around the 10 lap mark.

    Totally confused I had to pull another long sting in my 3rd session so went on extra fuel save to try and get Pekka through pit startegy. Anyway it paid off as I only had to fuel 4 laps for my last stint and came out 7 seconds ahead of @Crispy74 and managed to pull that out a bit by the end.

    Great race everyone and thanks again to @Speedy6543 for doing such a great job hosting have a great holiday Chris and see you when you get back. :cheers:

    Thanks for the race guys, and speedy for hosting, still can't get the hang of this strategy lark I had to run lean to get any kind of mileage out of a tank that's why i shifted out of the way a few times because I could see some of you were so much quicker too, also is it just in my head but I the grip level seems marginally worse it the online race than on a time trial, even when i'm on fresh rubber.

    Also Thanks for the invite to the party chat but for some reason I could hear everyone but they could't here me.

    Mike, do you have a wireless headset or cable where you have to plug it into the DS4 ? If wireless then not being able to speak is usually because the base unit for the headset is not plugged into one of the USB ports. Sound still works because that comes from the optical port at the back of the PS4.

    Thanks everyone again! It's a great feeling to have clean racing without the ping pong you get in most sport mode events :gtpflag:

    I have a wireless one too and every time that happens it's because I forgot to plug into the USB. Anyway, hope the problem is that simple to fix mate. :cheers:
