I just had my worst race in my whole life.. EVER.
Solstice at Lime Rock
The thing started with extremely long waiting time for the grid to form and then the lights took an awful long time to change... When they changed, I nailed it. But the lights changed to red. So my race is already ruined before it even started.
This must be my second ever false start in my life (including LFS).
Then I wait like a nice boy for the green lights and drive in the pack to the pits. But no wait, the guy in front of me forgets how to drive in every corner. The only reason I set a qualy time is to be ahead of dumbasses like him. So in the final corner he gets so much out of shape I end up driving off the track to avoid him. I spin (+2 points). Wait for the pack to pass. Then point my car at where I think the pit entrance is, but it's not there. (I never drove into the pits before. BIG MISTAKE). Then a car comes suddenly out of nowhere and grazes me (+4 points=6). He spins out of control. I decide to drive another lap and have another go at the pit entrance (so now my lap wont be scored). When I get to the spinner I slow down to let the poor guy go ahead of me, because I feel guilty for his spin. He then proceeds to try to spin the car in a violent manner so that he comes across track and right in front of me. I T-bone him. This happened so fast and I was not expecting it. I just hit the brakes, I was coasting anyway, but I still hit hard. (+4points=10). I finally get to the pits and guess what. I dont know what to do. I try stopping like in LFS and I also used the escape key. Still no use. I drive back out again for another lap that wont be counted. The second time I get to pits I finally see the guy with the lollipop. I serve my penalty and off I go. I go out of pits and suddenly see the leaders in my mirror. In that time I accidentally cross the pit exit line.
((( Another black flag. But this time I know what to do.
I commence lapping the car around the circuit untill at one point one of the leaders comes to pass me. I let him in the inside of the first corner, but hey what's that, he veers into me. No worries, its +0 points. A very light touch. Now wait a minute, oh no my suspension is bent
(((( And there is still 10 laps to go
Some laps later I come across a moving chicane. He really was a moving chicane, god damit. I approaced him so fast I could not believe it. In order to avoid him I go off (+2points)
Race total 18 points. 6 laps behind. And smth like minus 10 for my licence. I now stand at 2,39
(((((((((((((( I'm never getting to 3,00 and I deserve to get there for sure.
