    @True-blue-8 I'm happy to be host as it seemed to work well for all on Wednesday so long as all are on time (read on...)

    HOWEVER.

    I can only make R1 and quali tonight! Sorry @Antares26 , I guess I'm turning out to be a terribly inconsistent teammate :lol:

    But it's a guys last day at work today and we are going out for a beer to say bye :):tup:

    We need to catch TNR :p

    That's fine mike mate, but not too sure how the lobby will react to a host change? @TNR_KING_FILO you've got a good net mate, do you want to open up?

    Yeah, I just realised it wont work to swap hosts after Q as it would be unknown as to who would then become room owner.

    So I guess safest is for me to host R1, then someone else takes over from Q onwards:tup:

    Edit - or someone else tries hosting from start lol, either way I'm easy :)

    Bit of a late call but I won't be able to make it. Got too much housekeeping to do, wishing for stable room for all. :)

    I'm guessing from the results it definitely wasn't a vw track!

    Slightly funny story...

    I had hoped to do really well (I was going for the win) given I could only do R1 at Monaco. But for some reason I was wayyyy off pace in final practice. I couldn't understand. So started messing with what was a 'good' setup and still no luck, suspension changes, ARB changes, downforce changes....still a good 1.5s off of practice a few days ago even after a really clean lap.

    SO I checked this morning to see if I had in fact been using the wrong car power setting...and yes. Turns out I was running 20bhp down by accident.
    I don't know how, and I don't know why but it happened, and all I could do was LOL at myself, and curse at my own stupidity!

    Now it makes sense why people were just driving away from me after I did the perfect corner exit into their slipstream, and the times people would just literally drive away from me on the hill after T1. And all this talk of the VW not being good and I couldn't even remotely keep up :lol:

    So I've spun, crashed, ran wide, ran low power etc etc, and generally screwed with my/ my teams chances of winning the championship...

    @Antares26 , you genuinely do have the worst teammate ever hahaha.

    But do not lose faith quite yet. I do my best work when playing catch up, for me nothing is more motivating than catch up :) We WILL get that 1-2 finish I know TSA have in them before the end of the season :sly:
    Peace for now guys, see yous at TM :gtpflag:

    Pulled a ballsy move on @J_Starscream in Race 2 to reclaim 3rd... There was a little bump, but the instinct at Turn 1 to set it up was quite the eureka moment.

    Was that when I forced you to go to the outside around turn 2 before you rammed your way though at Casino Square? :lol:

    Oh dear, someone needs to take another look at the replay... :lol:

    When you give me barely enough room to turn, and you have roughly 50% of track on your left side and turn your car in so that your nose is cutting across the only path I have available... Aside from come to a complete stop and have Antares run into the back of me... What's the other option? There isn't one... :lol:

    Nope, only watched the F1 and the 24 Hours of Spa this weekend! Not a big fan of BTCC, not enough clean racing in my opinion. :p

    Were there any penalties handed out to any drivers for dodgy overtaking or dirty driving?

    No incident reports came in as far as I remember, so there's really nothing for us to go by.

    Don't take the :censored: guys


    I was half way through writing a reply but decided not to, as like penalties no one will pay attention. There were plenty of incidents and like I said when I left the lobby, some people really are exactly what I said and if they can't have respect driving against others then there's no hope. I'm not bothering with pens as no one listens as is, but remember the term do upon others as you would have done unto you.
    No one had the respect to message me Friday so don't bother now. I've kept my mouth shut here and if people want to risk messaging me fine but I'm glad you all enjoying wrecking my races every week and I can't wait until the season is over. If anyone has anything to say then do it via pm but I'm not making excuses for people anymore. Drive with me and treat me he way you'd want in return
    You can say I'm angry or throwing a tantrum but I've had days to reflect on it and it's happened way to many times.

    Enjoy your holidays everyone
