    i think i stopped my race just before i got connection lost, because it was stuttering like crazy every time i passed the pits. In the meantime i gave Paul quite a scare when i almost spun in front of him, so i gave up in the end. Couldn't continue with those fps drops.

    replay link - groupA:
    http://www.gamefront.com/files/21067610/RSR-final-_FormulaKS2_A1Ring_groupA_race.rar
    (one for Mika's aimed collection)
    edit/info: I noticed that replay-links put in like with the 'replay_groupA' (replay_groupA) - method do now only appear as an underlined klickable-link for forum users as long as they are logged in (just
    to inform people, I think that was not the case some time before).

    My fastest qualy lap was 5 tenth out of my possible pace, so not that impressive (just 1:12.8 min.).

    Quite good/nice race, some positive 'trouble' at the beginning (got lost of a few positions as usual when I start with manual clutch) and mainly fought with
    Davide over some laps. Unfortunatley I had not that speed I hoped to have (guys at front were alien-fast), but with no traffic it was at least quite constant.
    Net-performance and FPS was very good , no problems like it occured for Maarten somehow, I remember that just at the first turn I had at only one single moment and lap a freezing FPS-moment,
    don't know what caused this at this moment.
    In the very last lap I tried to improve my fastest laptime still.. and got too wide (after disturbing myself by watching in the mirror for a short moment or s.th. like that) in the second fast left-hander at the
    second sector, so I got fully into the gravel and barely managed to get out of it / to get not stuck in the gravel completely. Gladly I stayed at pos.8 still at the finishline -I guess the guy at pos.9 was
    already -2laps behind and finished his race already-, so I did not lose any position when this happened at my last lap. Beside this there were no big mistalkes.

    great idea. It would be great to have a report for each race in the homepage. Maybe even with some nice videos to show, just like the one we saw lately.

    First words come to Andrea who was magnificent yesterday in race organizing and people support (I wish to have same boss at my job). That was my second official race as team member of Vermin Racing Team that made me feel more nervous and be more responsible for the result I have to achieve Wink. Qualification was amazing. Few people were within 0.1-0.2 second and a little better lap can move you 2 or 3 positions up. I literally feel like this is a real F1 quali. All the way I was close to my teammate Richard and we changed in order during the whole session. I did set my best time at A1 but unfortunately it didn’t come to official Rank since servers weren’t connected to that service.

    Start of the race was pretty good. Not sure why but I often have a pretty good acceleration during start procedure and run even better that some famous aliens here. I did overtake car or two and was faster than cars ahead but decided to avoid risk and pass first corner safely. Richard, Davide Z, Marco W were behind when we arrived next very slow right corner. Davide Z made aggressive overtake attack there, his car color has some similarity to Vermin so I thought initially that it was Richard. So few laps after we run pretty same speed with Davide. Don’t remember exactly what happens next (race was full of events) but Davide Z and Marco W were again behind me and Marco was fighting to overtake Davide. According to Rank Marco should be 1-1.5 seconds faster than Davide and I was impressed that he stuck behind him for so long time. Ahead me in 4-5 sec gap run Peirs S. I think I was losing about .2 -.4 sec each lap comparing to his race pace but that was amazing for me since in my Netkar carrier I never run so close for long time to famous drivers Wink

    Around lap 8 or 10 I made silly mistake at last corner due to some oversteer. Davide and Marco passed me and I got just in front of Richard. We run pretty close for 4-5 laps, some sectors I was faster, other sector – he. My strategy was wrong as I decided do 2 stops. Never know without good experience what is the better 1 or 2. After stop I moved to last place, not good but not a tragedy as well (as I was satisfied with battle I was able to participate in first laps). I tried to push on new tires thinking that I can overtake Richard when he make his own stop. Surprisingly his race pace on old tires wasn’t that bad. He runs around 1.15-1.16 same as me on new tires. When he made his own stop he returned just 1-2 sec ahead me. Wow – that was like real F1 again for me as it looked similar to pit-stops strategies when cars before/after pit stops and long runs come close again. Few laps after I made one more small mistake and lost 3-4 sec. Then Richard had his own problems and got behind me.

    Next amazing thing was last 3-4 laps. Davide Z had some problems at final part of the race so that he was running behind me before the end of the race. His speed was better than mine and he getting closer and closer to me. On main start-finish straight he attempted to overtake me in first right corner. He runs a bit wide and then pushes throttle too much so that car was oversteered and he lost position. I finished 9th what pretty reflected my overall speed. Great race, great feelings, great community so looking forward for next season!

    a thought I have about the low FPS: Probably using a wide FOV (range of view out of cockpit, I use 60 FOV) needs a higher performance of the PC too
    as if you just would use 45 FOV for example, but of course I doubt -if I had tired a lower FOV- that this would have saved me from the big freeze.

    @Tippet: great -again such nice high quality-report- ! You seem to be very talented in spontaneous writing and very quick cyclops , it always appears as quick as like you've finished the report in 5 mins just
    directly after the race/chat, incredible.
