Apologies to ice and eci for being excited on the first lap. I bumped eci a couple of times and on the final turn before the straight starts I got way underneath ice. My bad guys.

 

 


No apology needed.  I actually didn't even realize I was getting bumped.  Those cars were a handful on Racing Hards.  LOL

lol  what a joke.  i guess if some people cant deal with some HARD racing i should just keep it parked in the barn.  i though the battle for 2nd was a hell of a race with many passes on the outside and some serious door to door racing.    If your going to get **bleep** over that im in the wrong series.

These cars are powerful and heavy. I'm a little concerned about tire wear.

yeah DQ was post replay review after complains.  You will start on hard tires  along with other top two as tire penalty is based on race finish.   

 

Nice to see you are up and ready for the challenge.  You are fast enough, you don't have go outside of the track .  you can win it clean.

 

Its not "anything goes or winning at any cost series"  it is a " race clean and win" series.    Nothing wrong with racing hard, just keep alteast two tires on track and watch the bumps. I am sure you are all charged up and want to win this series which good to see.  It will be a challenge for sure with still 3 races to go any one in top 5 can win .

 

All the best Robot Happy

2 tires were on pavement at all times.  i dont race any race any differently then i do anywhere else be it on FF's Exotics, Here, my league open lobby, or in real life for that matter.  its racing not a parade.  if im faster im going by either on the inside or the outside.   When everyone is on the same setup the only way to win is to drive the everlasting *urine* out of the car and thats what i do every race.  i dont come out to run 2nd.

  i wasnt forcing anyone out into the grass.  Any dive bomb moves i made were usually on the outside and most the time they stuck and worked.   to say the rules are writen a bit hazey would be fair.  i didnt make more the one "Block" i did swerve to break the draft.  but when someone got to me they went by.  i think i did bump draft ECI once on the front staright but after i did it i backed off. (which you may not understand that being a habbit with ECI cause i have pushed him in more GT5 league races then i can count).

i still feel it was HARD racing not malishoius DIRTY racing.

Since you bought it up, i didn't want you to say it. I have Indy replay pictures of you delibrately running 4 wheel off the track  and into concrete run off areas which is not part of the track.  DQ reasons given were confirmed and reviewed by atlest 3 people in this series. It funny how everybody else seems know the track bountries,  rules and  running fine expect you.

 

Just keep 2 wheel inside the track that means inside solid  white line which is were the track ends.   If you accidently go over by your mistake,  you will have to give the place to the car(s) following behind and enter track when its clear.   Feel free to catch up to them and draft past them in the straights.  Run off areas are not part of the track.

 

 

 

This applies to every body.
