    I'll be away for this first race of the series, so if an SRO Admin is not in the race, please make sure to start Qualifying on time by using the Voting System in rFactor.

    Have Fun! :)

    Having a lot of stuttering problems with this track. FPS is ranges from 130 down to 29 at times. May not be able to race here. I have switched all the graphics down to there lowest settings but no improvements. I have a feeling I had the same problems at certain tracks the last time I used this mod.

    Any ideas?

    I'm not aware that this mod is any more demanding than others, but it's odd that you have these FPS problems. Have you tried the car at another track? I checked the previous series Forum we ran for this mod and there were no comments from anybody about a similar problem.

    Turning Shadows and Shadow Blur Off has solved the problem. Now getting much higher fps :)

    Francesco, what the hell it was? There were so much space outside, why did you begin cutting the corner? It was disgusting move after that my car was completely damaged. Please, be more careful next time

    Interesting race... too many incidents...

    For Lozio:
    I'm sorry mate, our incident was my fault. I knew I had much more wing than you, so I didn't expected you would try to overtake me at that moment, because you had to brake much more earlier than me at that corner. When I thought you wouldn't try the overtake movement, I stopped watching to your side and looked for my braking reference... The problem was that I had to turn slighly to the right before braking to take the corner.. and I didn't checked where you was before moved my car. That was my fault and because of that, I apologize.
    I will be more carfefull in the future in that kind of circumstances.

    I hope again that some actions are taken regarding this new driver.

    Someone needs to make a formal protest to the admin but remember we race for fun and drivers make mistakes. Its annoying when those mistakes affect others but we've all been there.

    Did a PB to get pole :)

    Got a terrible start. In practice I found that starting in 2nd gear limited the wheel spin and I good get away faster but this translated into bogging down as I let the clutch out way too quickly and I got a very sloooooooooow start. Dropped to 4th but managed to get back up to 1st by the end of the lap. Over the next few laps put in some fast laps and pulled out a 5 second lead. Then going into a fast right hander I clipped a kerb and span out. Didn't hit anything so no damage done apart from shredding my tyres. I knew I was faster than the 2 ahead so put my head down and stayed away from the kerbs. Caught the guy ahead within 5 or so laps and instead of fighting for the place he very nicely flung himself of the track. Many thanks ;). After a few more scares and a few more laps I got behind Fab but a limping back marker at the last chicane cut right in front of me and almost took me out. Another couple of laps and I got a good run on Fab down the start/finish straight. I think Fab also threw himself off the track as by the time I got threw the first chicane and down the straight he was no longer behind me. I hope my move was clean. I think it was and I think I gave him enough room but apologies if it was tighter than I thought. From there I had a 17 second lead but my tyres were right on the edge so I began taking it nice and easy to the flag. Great start to another classic rF1 series. Still having fun with this sim after more than a decades use. What other game gives so much value for the money. Most modern games are over within a few weeks and you end up £50 out of pocket. Long live the king of sims :)

    Well done to the podiums :)

    I really liked my result, I was not expecting second place because people had been running a lot faster.

    so I sacrificed a little speed and made a setup to make the car safer. which worked because I was a part in leading the race. my hope was that jim would hold paul so that I could gain an advantage.
    when I saw that Paul went second fast, I knew it was only a matter of time before he came to me.
    I lost a lot of speed on the last corner in two straight laps and he arrived.
    there was no reason for me to resist overtaking, there were still many laps left. so I did not argue. afraid to end my race and his, I ended up leaving a lot of space on the first corner and I went outside.

    but I was happy, I made a constant race and I got a second place.
