That looked exciting and very nice looking layout enchancement for the slippery parts of the track. Thanks for the vid! Really nice to watch pro guys racing.

Quote from versis :cool combo

No,it wasn't cool - it was quite hot combo in terms of tyres. Some were able to deal with it better,some not so good,that why we could see difference in quite few drivers' performances during the race. But someone was able to keep things cool and defended his combo's fastest driver's honor,as the current world record holder fast fastest in both sessions,picking up his 4th pole position,2nd win and also 2nd fastest lap of the race. Also it was 12th time Marex finished in top5. And he was the only one of top5 finishers,who does not belong to [TC-R] mob - Sam was the quickest in their inner battle and repeated his best achievement - 2nd place finish,6 top5 finishes now into his stats,remaining podium position was taken by defending Rockingham race winner Nick,3rd top5 finish for him. Rating leader S.Rose finished 4th,adding 17th top5 finish to his achievements,late joiner P.Butcher climbed up to 5th place from back of the grid,18 top5 finishes now into his records.

As usually in 2 weeks we will have a slick tyre race,BUT - the break between RTFRs has been cut in half this time,as the new version will be launched next week - RTFR XL,offering racers longer race of same format. Information about race combo should be posted during next 2 days.
you forgot my epic driftaruu
Thanks for the race!

Last morning I decided not to participate since I found the track&car far too difficult to me. The day before I tried to put some laptime in Airio table, and got frustrated when getting tyres overheating after three laps.

However found myself visiting the server one hour before qualify, and then thinking 'why not give a try'; I did two long stints before the race and got confidence to join it.

The race itself was enjoyable. After the traffic of first lap I just tried to follow Gutholz who was keeping quite similar pace than me. I tried to balance my speed between chasing him and taking care of tyre temps. Fortunately I tried a 28 lap stint before the race, so I knew what it requires to keep the tyres drivable, though it was still challenging. Very good experience and I feel that my relation to FZ50 has evolved to another level.

When watching the replay, I was just amazed about the speed and consistent of MareX, and also the tyre control of S.Rose who surfed smoothly and fast with green tyres throughout the race
I was very happy to get some good setup and managing to set the traction control to the point, where i could be fast-ish and not drift too much. Still, i am very surprised with the result. Smile
Lucaf - my race setup was made like 10mins before the qualification, at least the final version of it. I was testing all kinds of stuff and it was hard to understand whats going to last all 22 laps with decent pace, and the setup I made was 50/50, kinda fast, but couple unwanted slides and the tyres are gone together with race pace, so basilly it was all about throttle control.

Quote from Kid222 :... and managing to set the traction control ...

I forgot that FZ5 has it Big grin I would probably tried to use it
Did TC-R guys used it?
Is it ok to post replay here? Ok there it is, race replay. I used strong traction control because of keyboard acceleration and didnt feel its possible to take care of tyre temps without it.

Btw UM21 I wonder why didnt you pit to get fresh/cool tires? Or you could have just slow down (to get temps down), or make camber/pressure adjustments in F12 mode. Of course its very nice to watch in the replay how you managed to keep the pace with red tires (until it got hilarious).

I was planning to make full attack to lead and maintain my own pace, but turn 1 killed my plan. Then I just only drive
Badlvboy - none of us used traction control (:

Was a fun race, wasn't particularly hopefully of a good finish after joining with 15 mins of quali left and then doing badly in it but pleased with the outcome, tires seemed fine and relatively easy to manage. The set done well for being Nick's adjusted cruse set

Well, after you(ME) re-re-read that post again, it actually could mean both as us(YOU) in TC-R or us of all. Big grin
