absoloutly rubishy that race was! i quit the second race because i got fedup, i had my best ever start just for another Restart and then i get crashed, people dont use mirrors etc etc. first race was terrible in T1 then i get accused of being impatient for catching 1 second in a corner taking my normal line, not even looking for an overtake. the standard was too diverse. Maybe future events should be on more popular combo's?
I thought the first race went really well, and for those who stuck out the second race, we had a lot of fun too. It was good to have a challenging combo, and surely the mixed abilities of the drivers is something that should make people wary when approaching the driver ahead. All part of the racing.
Thanks for organising. And thanks for the nice gesture on the finish line SparkDave
But about the respectful driving.Well I don't know what you mean.
Your first race was ok (and in the last lap after you made an error I didn't attacked you at all costs there because I wanted to finish the race too). So how much more respectful driving you want?
And in the 2nd race you made a mistake by yourself and then you reentered the track in T1 and almost spun the car and you was lucky to not cause a crash with the following people. Maybe also think about that when talking about not respectful racing.
(and like others said about poor driving standard).
I watched the replays now a few times and I haven't seen anyone doing the track without doing selfmade errors. If that means the standard of driving is poor then ok.
I agree there was a lot of trouble because some people just take it too serious like always or are over-optimistic in T1 or they just haven't practiced enough etc. but that's normal in LFS i think. Except if you race in some leagues
Of course the restarting was a sad thing.
I bet we'll never see something like that in a T7R event again.
We can only learn out of these situations (and we do).
All in all I think race1 was good and I also had some moments in race2.
Last but not least
A big "Thank you" to all who joined us in these races to test out the server our new partner 500servers gave to us.
I hope and I'm sure some of us will see us again in one of the upcomming events Triple7Racing is actually planning.
Dont know what all the fuss is about, I enjoyed my first race & had lots of off road moments . Too many negative nancys round here. (i think many driver were over cautious in T1 & people run in the back of them)
So now i'm a bad driver? if i can make 3 tenths in one corner, thats still a lot, and considering the speeds of the cars which makes the distance of 3 tenths bigger than it sounds. i wasn't playing the blame game bub and i'm not now, i just dont like it when people blame me for them being too slow, and i'm not exactly uber fast myself.
you forgot to add the after i called you a nub... misinterpretting people isn't very nice either. those comments were from race 2 and i do believe a lot of the drivers were talking and having a laugh, not just myself, there was barely anybody on the server
You made 3/10th over a 10 second striaght and a braking zone.. all i am saying on the matter that if you hit me when we are racing for position and you hit me mid corner becuase your line is different and you can not see where i'm driving too then perhaps you should drive more conservatively and get me on the next straight
Too often i hear people moan that they hit the guy in front cause the guy in front was too slow...
its the responsability of the guy behind to drive accordingly when there is a driver in front and to pass cleanly when to oppotunity presents itself
