Tonight's event was fun, okay sure I died on lap 3 but that was a lack of practise. Layout was really well made too. I'll definitely come to the next event!
The layout was an inspiration of the old 965 MRT Race layout made by myself and I must say, a good job was done remaking it as every problem the old layout ran into seemed to have been fixed with this!
Amazing race report for an amazing race again but I'm really starting to concern about the work gone in to the making this race reports .. Seems like every report you outdoing yourself ...
Well if we get to the race, it started great again for me, with a pace that i was happy with but at 6th lap (and in the report pointed out) someone in the lead has clipped the tyre wall and they rolled to the road. While i was chasing [MRc]Michal i hit one of the tyres that was on the road and it upsetted the car and nearly spinned ... It costed me 1 place to the Jam 616 but no big deal we were just started racing
After some more close racing, at the beginning of 9th lap i did my move to pass Jam and misjudged where Jam 616 was and after my move I gave him no room to avoid and he pitted me which cost him 1 place and cost me 3... Sorry Jam
But after that incident i caught up with Jam 616 - [WCL]J.A.Katila - 9397 and if you ask me that 4 had the best bumper to bumper, blood boiling race in this event...
Annnnnd at the last corner of 21st lap what [WCL]J.A.Katila did was soo cheeky that got me off guard or should i say "on guard".... *buh dum tss*...
Jokes aside amazing battle with J.A.Katila, i thought we were evenly matched (even tho he was very damaged) and i know who to rival on upcoming events (and you Mr. 9397 as well... next time i won't be licking the wall and spin)
I'd like to give my view of what has happened with this, as I think it adds to the report quite nicely.
Firstly as a footnote though, I made a small <1m video of the crash from a few different angles, look in description for time and angles.
Before the turn of the collision I had to put my handbrake on as to not hit [WCL]T.Sonini, which gave BLB the chance to catch up, I knew he was close, however I did check my mirror just before the turn, to where I saw he wasn't too close to myself as I went into the turn, sadly however I didn't account for my lost speed with the line, causing myself to turn into the corner thinking I was okay due to my mirror check only to be crashed by BLB, I was mad at the time yes (That only helped me race more aggressively) but I also waited until everyone passed, even though if I put my foot on the reverse instantly I could've got out before Swissline. But into the crash I tried to turn through it, get my car around the corner to no avail, I was carrying to much straight line speed into that barrier, thankfully my steering was okay to carry on without pitting. Even though this was a race-ending crash for me in terms of position I'm not at all mad at BLB for it, the crash itself was an unlucky coming together of two cars, misjudgement on my part too, its racing at the end of the day on a tight track, it happens.
Now I know people might say that BLB could've broke as to not hit me, and yes I agree, but it all was in a small fraction of time, even I know if I was in BLB's shoes I wouldn't have been able to react safely.
If this was a regular wide track.. I would say BLB is guilty. But this is not that case. It's like F1 in Monaco. When you let someone space on the inside you can't just decide to close it when he is already next to you. But that's just my opinion.
