Yeah. Luckily, when I pulled a hey on lap 19, it wasn't an all-out spin. I just went off-track, drifted, and blistered my tyres. When you crashed later, I slowed down as to not gain an advantage off your misfortune. Although I will admit, I did gain a second or two.

 

Next race is at Motegi. I did my pre-season testing here, so my car is tuned for this place. This is also where I finished less than 1 second behind faceman in round 1 at the speedway.

i don't much care for Motegi, as it is kinda flat and boring. i do think that you guys will make a great race out of it so that it will be not boring.

 

now, as much as i appreciate you holding up to not capitalize on my misfortune( shows the quality person you are:smileyhappy: ), please don't do that again. that is what racing is all about. you take an edge whenever you can. if i get caught up in something during a serious race, i expect whoever i am racing to drive off into the sunset without looking back. unless of course that person caused my misfortune lol. for if this happens i will hunt that person down. FOREVER!!!!! :smileywink:

Well I feel like a d o u c h e. Reviewing the Daytona Road Course replay now and I spun my tires at the start so no wonder I was way back in the grid after the first turn...:smileyembarrassed:

Gojet-64

peyepete

 

Grats again to hey on the win. Prizes have been sent out. After seeing the replay, looks like everyone used the pit road exit and didn't cut the bus stop much ( I did a couple of times on accident ) , awesome guys. Apologies again for leaving last night before the preview race, turns out I was all mad over nothing....**bleep** dogg.

 

Edit: pete has now tied face for the lead at 75 points. Hey has climbed up to 3rd while Lunz and I are competing for 5th at 54 points apiece. I said it before but I think this series will go down to the final lap and maybe even be decided by who gets bonus points in the final race. Thanks for racing guys. See you at Motegi Road Course next week, 24 laps.

I watched some of the replay.

I can't recall who spun out in turn 1, it was a blue car.

But Wagg, you did get caught up in the after effects and T-boned one of the cars.

 

So maybe your frustration wasn't all for nothing...

 

We all drive hard, and try our best, but mishaps happen, and none of us do them deliberately.

The best we can hope for, is that we don't get caught up in it, when it happens right in front of us.

Yeah I know. I let the incident bother me throughout the race and when I bailed before the preview race I instantly knew I should have stayed. I have many instances where I've caused other people havoc so I just need to chill. I'm sure many of you remember this in the FF race at Spa:

 

 

Bottom line is we're all here for fun. I need to remember that lol.

 

@hey - I haven't had a chance to practice at Motegi. I hate this track lol. I should have chosen Spa instead, despite the video above lol.

Don't worry about that, Wagg. Eau Rouge is just a tricky corner. Big crashes happen there all the time.

 

 

(Glad the Toyota got through that one without damage)

24 laps tonight at Motegi Road Course. Lounge will be open around 8 pm est, qualifying at 9 pm est and ends at 9:20 pm est, race starts 9:30 pm est.

 

Next week we'll be at one of my favorite courses, Eiger Short Track.

 

After the race tonight there will be three races left. I'm anticipating plenty of spots being up for grabs, including the top spot. Will this series go down to the final lap? Stay tuned.

 

Reminder: I got to head out of town tomorrow so while the prizes will be sent out tomorrow morning, the replay will be reviewed and thread updated on Sunday sometime.
