    Following Mint's sudden departure from racing for personal reasons, I'm going to have to shuffle these rooms around a bit. Some of course wont be happy which is understandable.

    So it is Eiger Nordwand Short Track Reverse this Friday? I should see whether I need to go and buy this car soon.

    Also happy to host if you need one.

    Cheers,
    Luke

    Hey guys, looking forward to battling it out state vs state! Just a reminder i'll be hosting this room, so if you don't already throw BeauAlbert6 a Friend Request before Friday if possible so I can make it friends only lobby to avoid the laggy joys of a public lobby! :p Cheers guys, will be great fun!

    Great race up front guys, really well done.

    I blew my chances right at the start when I set my fastest ever time through sector 1 on my qually lap, but the rear end clipped the tunnel wall and I lost roughly 7 tenths. I was devastated as that lost time would have given me pole.

    The start was tight, and unfortunately I couldn't gain any places apart from poor old warrior. As the race settled down, I sat back and let Bond, Beau and Giant fight each other, while I looked after my tyres for later. As I prepared for attack, I began reeling off laps quicker than the group and Mustafur in the lead. But as I got close, I'd fall back just as quickly. I seemed to lose a lot of time in the hairpins, and I couldn't workout why. I felt like I was driving on a different track! Eventually, I had cooked my tyres and was dropping so far back Warrior had got past. As I pitted, I hoped this would be a chance to set some flyers to jump the guys ahead and hopefully allow Warrior through. But it didn't happen, I seemed
    to lose a lot of time in pit lane, and the menu instantly disappeared, so I had a full tank again. Check and mate.

    The 2nd stint was a very poor and boring one. I'd missed the boat on fighting for the win, a real shame as this was a huge chance to peel a few scalps and I blew it. Well done warrior, it all fell into place for you, outstanding job. I'm hoping to fightback at Madrid, and hopefully win a race in my own goddamn series!

    If there's and issues you want looked at, message me.

    Cheers, Jono.

    Don't drive on Eiger that often, but that was a very fun combination and proved to be a very close race, well done Jono.

    @Mustafur a fantastic effort despite no having your Hud, it has happened to me before and if I recall correctly, I was paused when the countdown ends to start the race. Because you have to remain paused to keep your car in the box, I was mindful last night to un pause about 5 sec before race started, maybe this could help

    Also, if you find you've started without the Hud, a quick pause-unpause will bring it back up. If you can wait till you're in a braking area, it won't affect your race too much.

    Not so last night.
    I started race without HUD too.
    Tried the pause un pause trick to no avail.
    There are lots of opportunities on any track to do the trick.
    However only was corrected at the pit stop.

    Yeah that sucks mate.

    By the way, since there were 3 other SA drivers in the other room, your points will stay the same. @Tanktex should be back for the next race?
