For the new guy, here is a video, created by Simon Batina, to help you out in the registration and allocation to the race. In this case it's shown how to join the default team Radiators-champ. You can obviously create your own team too.

I cannot race tonight, as I'm having problem with my internet connection...it is a pity because this is one of my favourite track, but I cannot do nothing...technician will be to my home tomorrow morning to fix the problem, but it is too late...
My race was out of pace once the tires were used, driving a long distance with just 1 degree rear wing like I tried doesn't seem to work that good . At the end of the race I was physically 'out of energy' -I had no meal today so far, just some bananas - by myself and did some laps slow like I would only ride my bike around the track, so at lap 45 I lost even a save 9th position (to Biggio) in the mid sector, which was the main problem with my setup + used tires, he hit me a little bit (but not a huge problem) and was through.
As we're always writing history with every single of our epic races and noone else posted a link so far, here finally is my replay file containing the whole event (how to struggle with lowest downforce): replay_groupA

@ Gek and Maarten, when you guys have time can you upload your fastest qul lap replay edit file, pls start the edit before the the last corner at the start of the lap and to the first corner at the end of the lap. thanks. I will make the video at the weekend
oone of my best race ever... i get in qualify fast lap stopping time at 1:14:9 lallo and o'brien are fastest so i decide to test race set up ... I think to race against paul and lallo so I decide for 2 stop to get position over they in race ...but i'm unsure untill 10 second before green light Race start no problem at first turn (gentleman driver !!!). I gained 2 position... i'm 5th after one lap ... paul flies away litteraly and he goes faster; Antonio was in back of me but pushed me untill 4th lap so i thinked to left position and make my race in his back, but mistake occurred and lost 10 second ... behind me there were at 10 second Mr Dawson an Piers...great and fast drivers. so i push it untill 20th lap and i make my pit ... I was exit in 7th position behind dawson and Pier with 10 second... i try to push untill their pit stop and i gained 22 second for my 2nd pit .... all right, i'm 5th at the end of race .. very very tired
P.s. next race will be 8 december..in italy will be holiday can postpone to 15 december ...?

I wasn't sure I would do the race - having done only a few laps before the day (my practice time was hijacked by Imola). However half an hour on track persuaded me I wouldn't be dangerous, although I did expect to be horribly lapped.
Qualifying saw me improve my PB to 1:16.05, which was only good enough for 11th but given my lack of track time probably the best place to be (for everyone elses sake!). I made a cautious start just trying to keep ahead of Jose Canseco who was being even more cautious than me. Somewhere early on I think Biggio went off and M Waechter dropped back behind Matt Dawson. MW was apparently running wings of 5/1. I was catching him on the twisty bits and struggling to keep up on the straights. I was happy to run close behind and try and put the pressure on - which seemed to pay off on Lap 8 he went too deep into T1 and I nipped up the inside - managing to just stay ahead into the twisties where the better down force paid off. I could see I was very slowly catching Matt Dawson and 5 laps later I was on his tail adopting the same strategy - put the pressure on. We raced nose to tail up to lap 25 when he made a mistake, I think in T13 and I passed him and planned to pit that lap. My lack of practice meant I had no idea where the speed limited line was so I went very slowly up the long pit road, throwing away my advantage. Matt passed me just as I pulled into my box and as I exited he managed to just pull out ahead of me. Back to piling on the pressure from behind. Somewhere Clive caught up with us and knowing he was a lot faster I decided to let him pass and let him hassle Matt. That didn't work so well as I kind of lost my rhythm, fell back a bit and had to really work hard to catch up again with Matt. I was fairly confident I could catch him and put a pass - he was often deep into T1 so I set about planning my move. It wasn't to be, on lap 45 I was distracted and clipped the wall on on the start damaging my suspension finishing 8th.
Sounds almost a bit dull - chasing someone for the best part of 40 laps but it was a fantastic experience. Matt was well matched with my race times and rock solid - with only one mistake. Matt - I salute you, you deserved the place.
Ho avuto un pò di fortuna in questa gara, il contatto tra Clive e Maarten ha aiutato la mia classifica. Arrivavo alla gara con l'allenamento del solo pomeriggio con l'assetto alla meno peggio possibile, in qualifica và benino tutto sommato. La partenza è stata pulita, ma parto a gomme fredde e perdo 2 posizioni così ho dovuto battagliare prima con Biggio (che mi tampona tipo Senna con Schumi danneggiando leggermente la mia sospensione posteriore) e poi un pò più dura con Andrea che ci porta ad corretto e divertente duello! Da quì in avanti, essendo su una sosta come Juan e Paul che mi sono davanti, cerco di spingere per cercare di raggiungerli ma, complice un fuoripista da 4-5 secondi, praticamente i nostri tempi si equivalgono quindi mi accontento del 4 posto. Bella gara in una bella pista, la classifica mi sorride, con la nota negativa dell'assenza di Fabio, perciò per un punto Fusione Digitale si ritrova 2, bisognerà fare davvero il massimo nell'ultima gara per battere Paul e Clive. Infine ecco un esperimento, complice il progetto di Clive a cui mi ispiro, il video comparativo tra il mostro Gek e me: si nota quanto lui sia pulito ed io molto "irruento", sicuramente c'è molto da lavorare sullo stile di guida, davvero complimenti Fulvio! Ps ho dimenticato di editare l'audio
English by google: I had some luck in this race, the contact between Clive and Maarten has helped my ranking. I came to the training of the race with just one afternoon with the setting, at best, can, in qualifying goes pretty well all things considered. The start was clean, but cold tires and childbirth at positions 2 and I had to lose first battle with Biggio (I like the Seine with Schumacher collides with slightly damaged my rear suspension) and then a little harder with Andrea brings us to the correct and fun duel! From here forward, being on a break like Juan and Paul are in front of me, I try to push to try to reach them, but, thanks to an off-piste 4-5 seconds, almost our times are the same then I'll settle instead of 4. Good race in a beautiful track, the ranking smiles at me, with the downside of the absence of Fabio, so for a Digital Fusion 2 is found, we must really make the best final round to beat Paul and Clive. Finally here is an experiment, aided by the project to which I am inspired by Clive, the video comparison between the monster Gek and me: As you can see he is very clean and I "impetuous," surely there is a lot to work on driving style, Fulvio really compliments! Ps I forgot to edit the audio
