    I know the feeling, Ned - did a similar thing on Sunday. Sad we didn't restart, but it's always a roll of the dice with the "... who did we drop this time?" thing going on.

    Have to say sorry again guys about the confusion at the start. :nervous: At the end of the qualy I looked at the driver display on the right and only seen 8. In my nervousness thinking something was up with my connection I didn't realise the reason I could see 1 to 8 is because I qualified 4th :dunce: (it only shows 8). Had fun here's some pic's to prove it.

    In 4th going sideways into the barrier, probably at the delight of @Meister Fetz behind. Who nearly lost it as well. :D

    1st attempt at trying to over take @GTP_MadMax 3rd time lucky.

    Later, Thanks to @Napalm_LT making 2 mistakes on in a row, I was in for one of our mighty battles. :)

    Lost it at the end of that lap.

    :censored: Lost Him again, doing the same thing as in pic 2. Off into the grass after lapping @GTP_MadMax way to fast while hunting @Napalm_LT down for several laps. My brakes and gravel couldn't even stop me stop me bouncing back across the track :scared: near miss.

    That was it until 3 laps to go the darkness falls in and I spot headlights facing the wrong why on the same corner I went off at earlier. "did he do what I did? or did he break to late? is it even him? Stop thinking about that just keep it on track"

    Even though I finish 9th guys had fun telling myself not to freak out on the uphill with @Meister Fetz behind me then freaking out. Trying to get past @GTP_MadMax and then Hunting down then losing @Napalm_LT for most of the race.

    @monkeywall seems you're having issues joining, I'm going to exit room and let Patrick become host, so keep trying.

    Nice report, dude :)
    All race I felt myself like a turttle on the rails with a bullet train "Monkey" behind :) You was much faster there. Part on the top of the hill is somenthink what I just can"t do right :(. Maybe 3 months brake without PS3 done job :(. I spend more than 4 hours on that TT, reached only 2.15.0, and this lap was unclier. I looked at my status after race and was surprized - Mount Panorama is my favorite track :)
    Anyway, it was fun. Hope to have nice battles with you in the future.

    Yes it was. I really enjoyed. Close whole race. I had little edge with saving tires to the end of stints and I think that's made that little difference between us.

    Yes @jammy21, I watched the replay and it was really a good race. With your non stop pressure, I made a few mistakes trying to brake later than I normally did at the end of Conrad. You got ahead on lap 10, then I undercut you on the pit stops and got the lead back. I again made the same mistake at the end of Conrad and you had the lead the rest of the way. Great fun and really good racing :tup:.
