Kimi you've got this all wrong, this Smifaye incident I had the inside line all the way from the long hairpin, I didn't cut anything major off the corner so to avoid any chance of putting Smifaye in the wall.

The incident with RacePro - I was already fully alongside and with him pulling further right actually put me off a bit as I thought it might be lag and that he'd come back to the left more for the corner.

The start was fine, I have no issues with that as, of course, it was going to be close.

Any other issue you have I'd have to check the replay, the only times I remember cutting any corners was where I had been tagged or started to lose the back.

My only criticism is for anybody who says 'I'm in your inside' when they're not even alongside. I don't think it's right, of course the only way they're getting through is with cooperation. When in truth they should pull out of the move. I only tell people that I'm on the inside if I know the person I'm overtaking is using cockpit view, like yourself. As most others can tell there is someone already on the inside.

I think it needs putting to rest anyway as I have fun racing you as you're quick and can learn from you and the others.

I agree with you on all those counts and put those reasons in my post because I know why you did it. The way you made it sound was as if the only reason I was side by side with you was because I had cut the track. You didn't mention the run on you I had down the hill and was side by side before I climbed the kerbs. What I was saying was that you were doing the same thing as me!

I tend to give a little warning if I see a space, there was an incident when I saw a space in the clios and said to Tommy I was going to go there and Tommy jinked a bit and I immediately said not going anymore. Which is completely fair enough. Like that incident on lap 7, I was well within my right to crowd you out when you called inside as you were off the track (As had been done to me by a couple of people during the evening) but I don't do that and don't want to. I want to have fun and having wheel to wheel battles is fun. But if the majority want aggressive crowding when defending and firm overtaking then fair enough.

I agree, I want to move on too, but you brought this up and it's starting to feel like a bit of a witchhunt. I saw a lot of incidents happening around me too. I just don't go on about it because it would get repetitive and stale if I just moaned forever about things like that. And we are here to have fun, of course.

Cheers Dan, but from chatting to Kimi i think his time was quicker than me, and he was 4th in his lobby.

Can anybody who was in lobby two tell me what happened in the Clio race?

On PJ's results pic:
8th Rach - DNF
9th Connell - DNF
10th Zerox - DNF

Insufficient end of race timer? Disconnections?

I think Zero stopped to have pizza, I don't know if he actually left the lobby. Connell was stopped at the side for some parts of the race, I believe he didn't want to get in anyones way because he hadn't practiced but he did do some laps, and Rach was just seconds away from finishing but the time ran down. :)

No, Zero remained in the lobby. He parked up on the start/finish.

Yay results.

What a ridiculously close second race, Smifaye two seconds off the lead in 6th place! Epic race.

Looks even better now it's on the wiki! Slightly kicking myself for screwing my last few laps of race 2 up now. Could've been a double win!

Yeah, great win guys. Is that 6 in 6?

I also extend my lead I believe by a point or two, unless Alex's 46 point haul completely rapes me :P

EDIT: Scrap that, I have some mathematics to attend to.

Can someone from my lobby send me the Clio replay? Couldn't get one because of the lobby buggering up.
