    Great race practice today! That 25 minute race helped me figure out a fuel/tire strategy, something I've just been winging lately. We'll see if I just throw it out the window or not :D

    Well guy's, looks like I'm out of this race! Sitting in the ER right now. Hey Blade, remember when I said, "gotta go, cya at the race!"? We were on our way to Easter Mass and she slipped on the floor and fell down 2 steps and dislocated her shoulder!

    Gurizzi, if I'm not signed up by 11:00 go ahead and give my spot to someone if you like.

    Have a good race boys!

    What a race at Madrid today! After my first full race, I'm staying here! I qualified 7th place and finish an ok 10th place. The race was great! Excitement for me and everyone else! :D
    I must've had the most exciting experience, due to me having thunderstorms in my area! It was all or nothing, with a risk of a possible purposely made DNF, since I don't wanna kill myself racing due to lightning striking my ass! :eek:
    I did see my friend BaBa_minecraft signed up, he didn't even show up! Guess he was doing his silly things. o_O

    The Race:

    The was was great! The start was very difficult due to the reverse layout's turn 1 & 2 being the last two turns on the normal Madrid!
    Then at lap 3 I messed up at turn 1 & 2, hitting the wall trying to stick to my line, causing me to break a wheel and pit for the first time. :confused:
    I messed up more times, and after my 3rd or 4th pit stop to fix broken stuff, I decided to only get fuel if I needed it. :cool:
    Then there was the horror of being bumped and jammed up to where I might make accidental contact. :oops:
    Poor Flash had an engine failure (disconnection), so that was disappointing. :(
    Near the 3 quarter mark I made another mistake, causing me to pit for the 12th time or so, but that was the last one I made. 4 tires, fix a wheel, and went on ahead and got fuel. ;)
    I wasn't sure if I was gonna run out of fuel, but gladly I had enough to the end. :)
    The biggest horror of this race for me was the fact of doing this while thunderstorms were occurring in my area! I was hoping that I wouldn't have to purposely DNF the race so that I can avoid my ass and my PS3 getting struck by lightning! :eek:
    Luckily I was able to finish the race in 10th place 2 laps down, which was ok. :rolleyes:

    After the Race:

    So after I crossed the finish line, I was in 9th place, but I noticed that I received a 1 minute 40 seconds penalty, which caused me to finish in 10th place. I did forget to change tire compounds, so that's why I got the penalty.


    Overall it was an awesome race! I didn't eat, drink, or stop for an hour and a half! :D
    I will try to return next week at Silverstone in the ole' Audi R10 Stealth Model, and aim for P1 class eligibility! :)
    Great racing everyone, and hope to see everyone at Silverstone next week! :)

    ^ You probably got the penalty because you didn't change your tire compound at least once.

    I'll be at a relative's house for Easter but I'll try to have my race report up at some point!

    What's that? Changing the type of tire?
  20. Tijee

    In every race you have to change tire compound at least once (RH / RM). The only exception usually is when it rains.

    Dude, it's explained by gurizzi in one of the first posts of each event, and you can also see it in the race settings... And it's also written on the screen during the race (bottom right) :p
