Thanks to everyone for the race, and congratulations to the winners. Special thanks to Team Vires for helping us out again this race
Among all the complaining, I'd like to say I thought the racing was pretty clean. There were some close shaves and hairy moments but that's all part of racing.
As for the GT500/GT300-problems on the track: I think if more GT500-drivers would be doing some practise laps among GT300-drivers on the practise-server before the race, there would be less than half the trouble with traffic. While preparing for this race, I rarely saw a GT500 on the server and if there was any, good chance it was just hunting for glory laptimes.
So the lfs admins **** up again, nice. Why give ****ing DT penalties when its only had 1 lap of racing that wasn't made pretty much void because of a safety car? Surely admins of this experience can engage common sense, clearly not...
We're not pleased with this outcome either, but as the rules are currently written, this is the result we get. This is not a situation we saw coming--perhaps we should have, but this is how rulebooks evolve.
That said, the easiest way to avoid race-ruining penalties is to not earn them in the first place.
You have a great race, that has an FXR somehow doing the impossible and winning in GT1 at KY2, and GT3 where the race goes to the wire. The race should be remembered for that, not the most idiotic admining in the history of live for speed
by Feuerdrache : I confirm that Ben was faster than me.
How on earth can you give a penalty if a car has the inside line and as it goes in racing, once you have done the pass, like in this situation, you have overtaken succesfully and won the position, and the car that has been overtaken is supposed to give the position away.
Nice way to take the deserved first victory from a team which has worked hardly it's way to this achievement. Thanks so much.
Phil, me and Isaac were checking the situation and he didnt see the RSC on his left because of the FOV he uses. My FOV is higher than his (about 72) and even I wouldnt have had a chance to see the RSC car on the left. Ofcourse one could say that "why didnt he look on the left then?" but anyone who has any experience would know that it's easier said than done, especially when Isaac could've hit the car infront and cause a possible lag crash.
