Iv just lost interest because of the tracks really. Choosing hard street circuits that guys dont know limits numbers, spreads the field and makes the racing less exciting for me. Id rather race tracks that are fun for all than hard ones that some master and others constantly struggle on. It just spoils it really. I thought this was a shocking track when we tested those other fwd cars here, how it caused guys to roll the cars, dont see the fun in that. Combine that with guys driving aggressive in these cars and not getting punished or stopped...no these tracks just dont do it for me.

So im going to just do the fun ones from now on.

Sorry to hear that.
We tried to mix the tracks a bit to give everybody a chance to do well. Some guys prefer street tracks (like myself) and feel they have a better chance of getting a good result. We have chosen 2 street tracks out of the 10 for this series, which we feel are a challenge and make winning the title really worthwhile.
The cars we tested on this track last time where really bad, that's why we never used them. The Marcas are a huge improvement and go well here.
Really hope you change your mind....

I had a rubbish first race. I span out twice and left the track a couple of times. I finished stone last ! Ate least i made it to the finish. The second race was awesome. I made no mistakes and Kevin was keeping me real honest throughout the entire race.The last 3 laps me and Francois had a white knuckle battle for the finish.He just managed to stay in front as we slip streamed down the last straight to the line ! My heart was pounding in my chest as i crossed the finish line. It was so intense my hands shook for a good couple of minutes after the race was finished. Congrats to all the winners !!

Patrik, it could be a corrupt graphics driver. If you able to at least boot in safe mode or even vga mode then the rest of the hardware is possibly fine.Try download a new graphics driver and install it. If its a Nvidia based graphics it asks for default or custom install, do custom then make sure to tick the clean install option, this removes all of the previous driver bits. Hopefully that fixes it then. Fingers are crossed.

Nice to be back on track, it's been a while...

Good racing last night gents - thanks!
I was having a good scrap with a bunch of drivers in race 1, but was unfortunately disconnected towards the end.
Race 2 was great.. I had a flying Fraser chasing me down after my pit stop.. Right on my bumper for the last lap. Frantic stuff Smile

Good luck sorting your PC out Patrick.

Some good racing last night guys.
Pity about the DC's. At least this time I managed to stay connected the entire time, after a 4 week lean spell. Twice being DC on last lap! LOL
Both races went well, although I thought I could have done a lot better in the second. The gap between myself and Jaques just stayed at 1:4 seconds for nearly the whole race. Super fast pit stop to try jump him and when I came out, I was on his bumper AGAIN! It was great fun and thank you all.
Congrats to the winners, you guys really hung it out there.
Patrik, I hope you back with us soon. We really missed your fights with the front guys. Please keep us updated.
See you all next week at Kyalami 2014

Re: MARCAS CHALLENGE ROUND 5 MIAMI BAY 24 JUNE

Post by Dirk on 25th June 2015, 14:21

I'm not going to lie: This has got to be my least favourite track so far, especially in these cars. They don't accelerate very well, so a stop/start track is very frustrating in them.  I was trying to press my poor throttle pedal past its stops most of the time!   Also, racing may be close, yes, but passing is all but impossible.  But as mentioned before it's the same for everyone so I can't really blame it for my lack of pace compared to the 3 or 4 guys ahead of me. I just think that a stop/start track exaggerates what's wrong with my pace, i.e. I'm somehow a lot slower out of corners than others.  I have tried to address this with all kinds of setup, but to no avail; even when trying an identical setup to the front guys.  It's just as if something is holding back the car's revs under acceleration.  (And no, TC is not on.) Really frustrating!

Race 1: Qualified an OK 4th, albeit a whole 1.6s slower than Fraser in 3rd.  Then the trouble with the server kicking guys out and us starting on a randomised grid, which saw me in 14th.  But, strangely, I'm not complaining about that: in fact I found it very exciting!  We should do this more often!  By the finish I had made it all the way up to 4th again, mostly through other people's misfortunes, chief of which is the 4 guys that were simultaneously disconnected again on lap 11 (Ken, Mike & the Johnson bros).  Surely, this is not fair to them.  Maybe we can revert positions back to lap 10 or something?

Race 2: Qualified 5th this time, again a whole 1.5s slower than Fraser in 3rd.  Then I found myself in a very exciting challenge with Gustav for 5th in the race.  I had the tiniest amount of a pace advantage on him, but just could not make my way past.  Lap after lap I was as close as you like on his back bumper and there was some nice good-natured, harmless nudging and rubbing going on (I hope he sees it the same way!).  I finally got a slightly better drive out of the last hairpin and just got my nose ahead by the chicane, but then made the very embarrassing mistake of spinning it on the exit of the chicane, probably because I was on a slightly unfamiliar line.  I was VERY upset with myself!  That allowed both Gustav and Shawn through, and the gap was insurmountable so I just brought it home in 7th.

All in all I probably shouldn't complain too much, but I'm certainly not sorry to see the back of this track.  On to the next one!
