Dont sweat it mate - we are all new with pcars 2 and frankly the TCR's are pretty horrid to get to grips with imo. I was something like 7 seconds of the pace at qualifying - normally Im not at the front but usually within 3 or 4 seconds at the worst.Anyway, hopefully I can into the pack more in future. I don't want to be floating around at the back forever.
That is no problem at all! Nobody is perfect and every additional race will make you feel more and more comfortable.I enjoyed very much. Most fun I have had. Many thanks for the gr8 racing. To be honest I was very nervous and made some errors. I do apologies for that. Hope to get better. I did retire on the last race with a blown engine, but I consider that a blessing as well as I started to watch Hobbs and Manu. Learned alot by watching both of you as in driving style - approaching the corner, braking and throttle application, overtaking and defending. Many thanks guys. I can only hope to learn more and apply what I learn.
Awesome two wheel skills James!!Firstly Welcome back everyone...summer break seemed to take forever but its great to be back!
I originally planned to use the Mercedes A45 but found the Renault Megane Much nicer to drive and i was quicker with that on defaults than i was with the Merc. Practice went well having been close to Hobbs but not close enough, ended wet practice 0.090s behind him having only changed setup to wet tires and lowered pressures. the car handled very well in both dry/wet conditions so i decided to push the limits of grip!
This was the limit for the chicane...
It went really well for me, i was on course for Pole position for most of quali until the very last second when @t0daY and @Hobbnob Managed to get good laps in, laps i couldn't beat.
I lost a position to @Blue Monkey at the start but managed to hold off @Cluck and bring the car home in 4th place.
this started alright for me until turn 2 which i was then "Vetteled" by someone(i know how verstappen felt!) I ended up on the grass and rejoined at the back of the pack. I managed to crawl my way back to 10th with a car that had front suspension damage and 40% damage to front so engine was progressively getting worse. Luckily 10th was reverse grid pole.
Starting from pole this race was looking promising as i believe i had the pace to win and hold off Manu and Hobbs. Sadly this is where Race3 ended for me, Not being able to select "READY" meant i could only Spectate.
Overall it was a great way for RSR to return and boy did we return in style!!
