Couldn't even practise... had to do a timed lap on the last 5 minutes (negative coin count)...
Started all the way in back because i couldn't get a good timed lap...
Made some positions at the start... gained some positions.
Ran in P10.. made a mistake.. fell back, climbed back up to P11...
Whilst battling for P10... Screen Freeze...

This was a bipolar season for the Vultures. We began well, quickly bought a Ferrari and Brabham, and seemed poised to be somewhat competitive. Then the roof fell in with multiple crashes and DNFs. We ran the last three-quarters of the season with a BRM, Honda, and Cooper in the garage, realizing that if we couldn't beat anyone, we could at least stockpile coins by trying to stay out of trouble and finish most of our events. And that we were finally able to do better than anything else.

just in time to join qually.
have to admit my concentration wasn't there today... kept expecting win10 to do what ever its been doing. Techs' are stumped as well... can't afford a new pc, and i'm not likely to attempt re-install of anything, i'm lost in that arena.
3 spins, all in turn3... started to develop a mental block about how to drive it
in the end, i was able to finish p12 ~ glad that is over

I race gpl online since 10 years but every league has its "touch" and I feel I learned a lot during the season and sometimes even I did some rookie-ish mistakes that made me feel shame and angry at the time... But at the end of the day, I'm very happy with all the new gpl experience.
I'll take the time between seasons to enjoy our summer outside the computers but I'm already excited to know the schedule for the following season.

P2 all race just behind Claudio. I was slowed down when lapping cars. And also lost time when one slid in front of me which I hit but was lucky not to crash.
Catching back Claudio, But not enough laps left to try to make a move on him.
Thanks everybody for the fun season.
See win10 still giving problems to many. So I will wait more before switching. win7 still safer and faster. Some host GPL servers on WinXP and even LINUX.
And a special thank to BO for the league, GREAT.

So to the start, Eduardo in three, didnít make the best of starts, so going into T1 in third, but I well know Mr Dulima is faster than me, and he had the Eagle, so with every intention of letting him go, I just had to wait for a gap between him and Ronnie to develope for me to drop into, so at the start of lap three there it was, slowed a little, but not much, after that I had to keep a good pace going, on one or two occasions it did slip a little, and straight away Ronnie was catching, but luckily by not enough.
So here ends my third full season, and this is the first one where I feel Iíve made a real improvement, thanks to every one of you for your respect, and being fair on track.
Best Regards to you all, Tim.

I'd go father than that: If we had a "Most Improved D2 Driver" award, you'd have my vote. Great season, Tim.

PS, yeah my tyres did get a bit toasty towards the end, but I canít do anything about that, so I just ignored it.

There might be a chance that there won't be a video...
As re-recording the race might not give the best results...
Other than that...
Because i'm transitioning to ultrawide recording (see my iracing shenanigans)...
I'm gonna use the freed up time improving recording and rendering (aswell as testing new ideas like re-introducing the wheelcam)...

This was the first race I won from pole, but it wasn't easy, Daniel (Bravo Daniel!) didn't lose sight of me in the whole race, so I had to classify the whole race, lap after lap. However, we would have lost a lap if we had run the previous Saturday in D1!
Congratulations to Tames (a pity he didn't run) for his well deserved championship.
Thanks to Bruce for this wonderful league, and now to work on next season's tracks.

Unfortunately, real life events meant I had to miss four races, so I felt a little disjointed. I'm hoping for better luck and timing next season - the track listing looks really good, so bring it on!

I had many dificulties trying to overtake him when he was jumping all over the track when cornering...

It was my first complete season and I was in the right team with perfect team mates . Everything was OK but I had problem with the old telephone line of my house (1960) . Since the line had been cleaned up , I had no more connection problem playing on line .
Grats to all contenders , everybody was smart during the races and a big "thank you" to the game managers .
Ready for the 2020 season in D2 and this time with the driving wheel ( G25) . I'll be 3 seconds/lap slower and not so safe . So I'll prefer to enter as private driver.

Also a shout out to Iestyn Davies and Eduardo Lima carrying Heavy Metal Racing to 2nd place in the Team Standings, and finishing both 3rd in respectively the D1 and D2 Standings. Same goes for Dan Down, for his great season at Honey Badger Racing, making sure they ended up 3rd in the Team Standings, and finishing runner-up in the D2 Standings! Also congrats to those winning Award certificates!
Compliments to Dag for taking over from Michael in difficult circumstances. Also thank you and well done all Team Leaders. Enough has been said about our Team, it was a pleasure to have Tames, Frank and Ronnie onboard. Tames being a well deserved D2 Champion with promotion to D1, and Frank for his splendid runner-up campaign. If not for missing a race at the Ring, and having this freak problem at Laguna Seca. And Ronnie finally winning the Team Championship!
Thank you all for racing in oAo, thanks to the Stewards, thanks to the TSG and last but not least thanks to Bruce for organizing!
