    Congratulations @Nico Barclay good drive, but i saw a few guys kicking a$$ here, so well deserved to finishers.

    For future events we will need to do a few things differently, Q races and more test races so we dont end up with 9 finishers. Other than that a decent event, good job by race director @Enzo Fazzi and BC by @Jimmy Broadbent, @Troy Uyan and @Curtis Kenyon

    bittersweet feelings for me, i choose a safety setup to run instead a speedy one becouse this was my first oval race ever...
    the start was good, better than i expected and i had 20-30 laps with good pace and good fights and a lot of fun...
    its really a challenge to follow another car entering and exiting the turns, i didnt had a good chase practice but i think i managed very well on race...
    I tryed to avoid any incident, but i made contact with @Shane Burke, he almost lost the car and his car went into the inside lane where i was, and my car loose stability and corner speed. i have to repair and no FCY was happening.
    After the repair, i was with less laps and being lapped by @Osvaldo Angelone, he touch me and the race was gone...
    I tryed to stay on the race, but the car was too slow with 20 km-h less and the car becomes overstery becouse of the damage...
    SO, time to hit ESC....
    but it was a nice experience, some 3 wide runnings, some overtakes and some close fights.
    Thanks to all the organization, we need to repeat this race :D

    Well my first proper Oval race on rfactor 2 and despite been a rookie which i guess showed i am hooked on doing another. How about another special with these cars again but a road course? Watkins Glen or street circuit like maybe Long Beach or for something really different Nascar at Daytona and have the rules to use stick shifters as in the real thing if anyone has shifters with their wheel sets.

    it's ok, was just making you see that you also made a mistake, but np. it was lap 30 or 40 i believe, anyway it doesn't matter :p

    You are right, but for me the more interesting question is: why there were so many sign ups, but only 26 of 30 took part in the race?

    I know and there drivers won't be able to sign up in future events - they "steal" other drivers spots.
    The same goes for the Bathurst race and potentially if they want to sign up for other series.

    First at all, congrats to finishers, too tough race than expected.
    Too many incidents in the first 80 laps, and 50% of grid with DNF was too much.

    In this first 80 laps, I was like undertaker, collecting corpses in all indianapolis.
    I think the finish 5th place was too good for me..but it was a prize to be conservative driver... :D

    Congratulation to @Enzo Fazzi for the organization, and @Jimmy Broadbent and @Troy Uyan for the transmition.

    yeah fair play. might've been a little annoyed with the way things go, in hindsight i might've overreacted a bit. end of the race didnt really go well because of myself and my emotions took a run on me

    yea in hindsight my reaction was maybe a little harsh, was a little annoyed with how things panned out in the end, threw away a podium all by myself, so i might've overreacted a bit on you

    I saw you approaching in my mirrors and kept my line as good as possible despite the speed difference and got a tap. It damaged the left rear suspension. Like I said my car was ruined especially after the big shunt into the wall by Casanovas. I was deciding when I could only top 204 mph on the straight to retire..maybe I should of done but I hate quitting unless I really I have to. The car was still driveable just wayyyyy down on power so sorry I got in the way of you guys.
