    Zolder is such a great race track! Turn 1 to turn 3 is just fantastic! The whole time the F5 feels like it's in a slightly out of control but not quite 4 wheel slide..... Then the chicanes:cool:.... How deep do you dare to go?

    What you forgot to mention Carl was that I made a complete hash of the start in the first race :eek: I got the timing all wrong and had to get off the power. As I did that the lights went green and I had to pull away in 1st gear from the very bottom of the rev range. There's nothing "mystical" or underhand, it's just timing. I make most of my mistakes offline and get the penalty for it. I've just been lucky enough to get it right (so far) by treading that fine line.

    Can I just echo your second comment as well, the standard of driving is fantastic. It's a real pleasure to be on the same track. And as you said "this is what GBRCis about". :)

    Steve I must add I know that we have all raced with you for a long time and speaking for myself but confident everyone will agree NO club member would even consider you would do anything underhand.....
    I was only commenting how the game its self is strange, as we know from the different starts the club has tried many ways but it is pot luck on the grid how the car will propel its self off the line.
    Keep up the good work.

    I'll probably make it back in time for tonights race but I've barely turned a wheel on this track, the only time was weeks and weeks ago with Steve and Nige and I think we only managed about 5 laps then.
    So to be on the safe side I'll probably sit this one out to save getting in anyones way!

    Shame about the server problems tonight for the climax of the event, felt sorry for your Bruce all that effort for that to happen but I'm sure it will be finished soon.
    Carl set up a room and then there was confusion, Carl set the room for practice but for some reason it went straight into the race I can assure you Bruce the full intension was not to race until you joined.
    Both the Escort and Cateram were fun could be good cars for another race series.
    Good nights racing all in all

    Gutted about last night, was really looking forward to it. There were so many strange things going on. Even my messenger app cut out at one point saying that I needed to re-connect to PSN.

    Going forward, I don't really mind how we go about it. Wrap it up now, try to race it next Sunday (although I think next Sunday was being kept clear for some reason...) or finish it at the end of the next series. It would be nice to finish this one off but understood if its not.

    As for the eventual races we did have, What Coke said was true. I went to track expecting the Escort to be even more of a nightmare than usual with cold tyres only to find that we were all lined up on the grid ready to go! And the tyre eating Caterhams were great fun, although they did feel like they were hovering just above the tarmac most of the time. Almost like a skimming stone. Loved it!

    What a mess last night was - PSN or SMS servers messing up, two PSN message threads running at the same time, invites not working properly. :( Nightmare.

    I'm assuming everyone wants to run the final round of the Rookie Series, so we could run it on 21st Feb, which pushes back the Road & Race Series 1 week. Some members can't make 14th Feb so we will avoid that.
    There is an option of a Thursday, but that clashes with the GT4 Casual.

    Is 21st Feb re-run ok with everyone ?

    Note - PSN Messaging - lets sort this out because last night was ridiculous. Lets agree that the organiser sets up the first PSN message to everyone that he has invited to race. Everyone must stick to this message thread as last night we had 10 members in one thread & 8 members in another & people were missing posts about rooms etc.

    Sounds good to me Bruce. If it helps, this Thursdays KoTR event could be postponed. Theres four signed up with two wild cards. If not then the 21st is fine.

    Ok, cheers Steve - so we have the option of Thursday 11th Feb or Sunday 21st Feb

    Personally, I would say Thursday maybe better so we can finish this Rookie Series without having a big gap.
