The event settings says "Grid Start".
Should that be "Grid Start with False Start Check"?

It's possible to jump the start and get a better start than someone who doesn't. Having TCS on seems to negate much of if not all the time penalty handed out for a false (early) start.

Sorry about the no-show Tueday. I seem to have the cold from Hell. Woke up Tuesday morning and could barely move. I slept almost round the clock. Went back today for the first time and still not quite right. Gonna hit the rack early I think. Have a good race tonight guys, I'll see ya soon I'm (hoping lol) sure. I'll give the Tuesday thing another shot this next week. Sorry again,

Wall

Q submitted with incorrect car because the 86 GT '12 didn't show up in the drop down list.
so my official q is 1'10.658 with a Toyota 86 GT '12

Same here.

At this point more 2000GTs are trying to show up for this race than exist. Shocked

I entered my time with a few minutes to spare, saw myself in the grid popup but, I just refreshed the first page of the event thread and I'm not there. Suspect If I could get in, that would be great. My time is 1'10.683.

edit: I'm in the 2012 86 GT.

After the first time I crashed on my own and bent my car, I figured I'd try to beat whoever else pitted for some reason, and maybe run down people in weird cars. After the second time, I had much less enthusiasm. Mad

Oddly when I started watching EVERYBODY had at least one damage light showing, most had multiple including 4 with engines. The only people who don't have damage showing right now (lap 30) have pitted while I've been in Watch Race. Suspect

at least my damage and pit stop was at a perfect time - at the end of lap 16 Razz

I had a lots of fun, fantastic event.

And sorry for the screw up in the q race. Looks like it didn't handicap Rooster too much; congrats to the win cheers

That's weird. I didn't have any contact or damage.

Here's my crapstice tune, and accompanying notes. I hope to run one of these events again and perhaps fight for the front with it, despite its crappiness.

No pit for me. I waited until just shy of 6 laps left to decide it was too easy to drive my unbroken car. Suspect So, I promptly smashed it into the wall. Rolling Eyes May have cost me a crack at a win but, Rooster was pretty strong. Managed to hold on to 2nd though. Cool One more lap and Robiker would have had me. Crying or Very sad I had to use my one move on the straight, as it was. Very close. Shocked Love the heavy damage even though it bit me this time. cheers

My apologies for goofing up the new Q procedure, I had to step away from the room for a bit, apparently while it was being explained. Then I was lost, obviously.

No problem Rooster Laughing I do like how the latest Q procedure was looking. Next time I'm hosting I will type the order into the chat for less confusion. Just got to get the drivers to post their times as soon as they finish the next to last lap and it should go pretty smoothly.

This was My first Driversport event. I was interested in the event for several reasons. I like sports tyres, I like front engine rear drive cars, 300 hp, 500 - 600 pp cars are probably my faves. Less than 3k weight. Good Car selection (although more premiums would have helped me, too bad there isn't a better solution equalize the cars performance) for what We have to work with. Great group of drivers too! Hope that I didn't mess anyone up. The racing was pretty darn good, tight start, drivers making mistakes later helped me. Vkaifh, clacks, rack all having small miscues, allowed Me to move up through the rankings. V came back after a stop and nearly pipped Group44 n I who raced the last 10 or so laps glued to each other -good fun G44- Rooster My Friend WtG good win Man. Thanks to all! Mike
