This is last call to the event. If server gets populated enough, it will be passworded earlier.
Its really recommended to practice well the circuit. Without optimal lines in curves, you will continuosly crash into barriers and get frustrated. There may be also a time level you need to reach to qualificate into the race.
Oh lol you had a good reason to be confused. Don't know why there was "am" after time, I removed it. Qualification tonight
Looks like it was also misleading to post best recorded laps in this thread, that list didn't have anything to do with the race event and official qualification. it was just for fun there, but I removed that also.
Event started traditionally with a qualifying session of 45 minutes. 35 racers recorded a time in the qualify. 28 of them passed the qualification wich was 1:38:00. Four of qualified drivers did not join the race: TheIsraelMember (because on unconvenience time zone), Jay (unknown reason), Timbe (unknown reason) and PieJuk who's car was in the grid, but no movement happened on green light.
This was my worst event in Live for Speed period but i’m glad i didn’t ruined anybody’s race but AdamB’s almost.. Yeah sorry about that
The thing i learned in this week’s event is , being fast in qualification is one thing but being fast while racing is another… Passing anybody without contact with a -relatively- big car while track is only 3 wide is whole another ball game and i learned very quickly that i wasn’t ready for any of it.
Well my finals week is coming and i wanted to stop racing for a while with a great top 3 finish so i practiced very hard for this week’s event. I tried different setups, searched breaking points, when to turn-in when to give gas etc. and even did a offline 21 lap pre-race to make sure about fuel levels so as you can see i was more than ready.
So at grid i knew i needed to get top 3 to achieve my goal so i went for it. My practices made lot of difference.. I could keep up with the pack without breaking a sweat and i felt i was faster than they are and i thought to myself that i could pass them easily… At 2nd lap i did my move and disaster ! I couldn’t pass AdamB and nearly spinned him out… Lost 2 positions to spiky and Jepis. I was shaken but not giving up because of my goal… I was in top 5 in qualification i could easily pass spiky and Jepis i thought… So in T5 ( not even waiting for 1 lap!! ) i brake too late and hit Jepis rear end then it hit me. I wasn’t ready for any of this and if i kept trying i would ruin someone’s race.. So i gave way J.A. Katila, slowed down a bit and started chasing him.
After Jepis has left i thought without anybody in my front to battle i could do high 1:30’s and low 1:31s just like in my practices and get back in the race and after only 1 turn i did an error and nearly rolled my car which destroyed my morale all together... Beware of Gif
and after 8 laps i misjudged my turn-in point and crashed which costed me the race… Beware of Gif
Even though it was my worst race, i’m totally happy that it was other way around for most of the drivers and new “Highlight Moments” are amazing and gives new taste to race reports so keep up the amazing work Lucaf
@9397 Your tracks are so tight that it is inevitable that someone is going to crash someone else out accidentally while trying to pass. I think you should try and relax your administrating a bit. It is almost as if you want people to just drive round without overtaking.
For example, Arttu's crash with Jari was a racing incident in my eyes, both could have done something to prevent it and the person that you say caused it ended up much further behind. Same with the one with F308, it is hard to tell from that camera angle but it looks like he made a move, vis tried to take a normal line but hit the back of F308 and that straightened him up. As i said, it is harder to tell with that one as the camera angle isn't the best.
Really, if I would be writing here every incident where my race was ruined by some other racer I would have no time to race
You obviously haven't seen a replay of the race. You would know that Ardeee was driving behind with about same pace from lap 15 until the incident. Before the collision I was clearly ahead and have the right to choose line through a curve, thats normal racing rule. Of course I knew he was there but if you are ahead just one lap before finish you really not just give the position to your opponent. What kind of racing would that be, lame at least
But you are not and seems you are not much respecting admining of this server. I would even consider some actions towards you if were running this server, just because of the attitude and accusations you are expressing.
Thanks for all feedback, and thanks for MGEDK for sharing your honest thoughts of your race. Thanks also for Kid for taking care during race, wich made me possible to fully focus on my driving without need being aware what happens in other places of the track. I enjoyed my racing much more this time.
Heyy bro! And thanks for your feedback. Yes me too enjoyed those moments very much. Currently I cannot rejoin LFS, my real life needs some re-structuring and there is no space for gaming. I cannot see further in the future what will happen, let's see!
Its time to revisit old classical Fern Bay again. The layout will be even more exciting than the one we did back then. It will be a fully refactored reverse version with radical modifications on some parts.
It will have more cut restrictions (u know, we need to orientate our minds to new Fern Bay coming with sausage curbs etc..) and some other nice stuff. And: The Karussell will be introduced! (don't even think you know where it will be located, its not there but near)!
The tarmac part percentage will be little bit greater this time, meaning the RB4 will not be advantaged any more. Hopefully all cars will be on somewhat same perfomance level.
The event will be again a "mini endurance" meaning 2-3 hours. It will be run with TBO cars and probably (if running same pace), also LX4 will be an option.
I will put more information of the event, when I get things finished and have 9397 Racing server back online.
