initially i had p4 or 5 in Qual... but a screen freeze and i had to reboot my pc.
came back w/ 2m remaining and it didn't remember my time (see "unknown" on grid) :P  
did one hot good enough for p7...
the start was safe (from my view) and opening laps was Dan D and i chasing each other.
i finally got by, and then promptly spun or went wide - 4 times... each requiring another chase and intense overtake. Dan is GOOD :)

the mid laps were ok, i noticed some 'disconnects' and worried i was next - but it held - held for me and Andrew H to have a good dice!
i had him by 5s and knew it was ok, except another spin and he was by....  with 3 laps remaining i caught up, but wasn't sure i could take the position, when AH went wide and GAVE it to me :o

p5  yay  about where i started had i not had to re-Q
sorry to read so many others DID Disco :(

congrats podium.. and Grandfather Claudio!!


ps///i finished on lead lap with +4 gal fuel :P

Hi, Bob.  I wondered about this ident, too.  It's got to be Kayo Michiels.  From Belgium as listed above which fits.  His description of his fate exactly matches Kayo's race.

Happy to finish in 8th.  Once I found some trees and telephone poles to watch for I started to enjoy the track.  Bend Racing has only two cars so I get stuck with the Eagle. Could not get the speed that I know that car has.        I suspect Niki owes me a Thank You. Early in the race going into T1 I hear someone coming up from behind going very quickly. way to fast to make that turn. It then feels like I'm being run over. Not sure how Niki would have gotten through there if I hadn't been in the way. I'll have to check the replay. We were both able to continue.

A week ago Andrew, our former (he was recruited a few days ago by Michi) ace ringer, showed up in the Vulture forum pissing and moaning that he couldn't figure out how to crack 1:50 at this track. I'm rarely impressed by the suicidal whimpers of guys who can strap themselves onto a 50cc Honda step-through scooter and beat the shit out of me when I'm in an Eagle, so naturally I told him to shut up and that in a week he'd be doing easy 1:46s. I notice this morning that he qualified in a Cooper (for God's sake) with a 1:45.9. The Psychic Hotline comes through again.

When I came back to this game three years ago, one of the first tracks I raced on was the original Aintree. I had two problems there: 1) I could never figure out how to get through the double-apex corners (Bechers Bend) leading to the entrance to the back straight and 2) at the end of the straight there was a kink that made Masta look like child's play. Running the track in reverse is for me a dream come true, since now I get to take the kink in second/third instead of terrifying myself with a triple downshift under merciless braking. Still, after seeing more than half the D1 field DNF (and only one a disco), I was willing to try to qualify as quickly as I could but to race as modestly as possible.

I couldn't have had a much better result. In qualifying the G3/G4 guys took the top seven spots, Dan snuck in just ahead of me in 8th, and Francois was curled up, waiting to strike, just behind me in 10th. I was more or less hoping at the start to overtake Dan and put Francois so far behind me that I wouldn't have to worry about anything except trailing the G3/G4 cars all the way to the finish. That plan was short lived, as Dan left me in the dust and Francois overtook me within a lap and steadily lengthened his lead over me by half a second a lap almost until the end of the race. But for Mick's crump on L10 and the discos experienced by Dan and Francois, I'd have finished in the undistributed middle of the pack. But I was handed a 7th overall and I won't be handing it back. Crashing out at Brno two weeks ago was a bitter disappointment for me, but a quiet, steady, and thoroughly undramatic tour of reverse Aintree makes up for a lot of that pain. No spins, no off-track recoveries, and no speed: It worked for me today.

It's Kayo M... i use a different profile naam in GPL... i'll edit my title name of my account to remedy it.

Whenever somebody post something in chat, or chat itself displays something like "... has disconnected" it drops the framerate of the game...

Hi Pepe !
I tried during qualifs to break this brabham wall in front of me !   I tried a suicide setup with 30/85 on diff but I didn't get to place my BRM in the Brabham "family" . At the start , the Honda behind me made a dramatic acceleration and jumped me .
You was very correct to let me overpass in the slow right turn ( door wide open ) .  At mid race I've made a grass visit in this turn and the one after . So i was alone at the 7th place till the disco ...  I hope to get a Cooper for Christmas gift !!!  :whistling:

Well done Pepe.  Now that you mention it I remember having the same problems with the clockwise Aintree.

Here you go, you're welcome.

Grats to John, Bob and Tames. Well done finishers.

This track can be put under the unreliable tracks, like brno49. IMO a beta track shouldn't be scheduled anyhow. I know, it's hindsight, but still. TSG do a great job in general tho.

Hi Kayo,
Do you have "In car Chat" unchecked in GPL? You will still see join and disconnect messages but (At least on my system). They don't seem to have quite as bad an effect as having the chat box checked.

New team, new car this time out. Thanks to PnB for the better car and guaranteed grid spot - it was getting tight to get on the grid.

Going into the race I wanted to qualify about a second off my PB and race about 2 seconds off the same number. For the first time in an OAO session  I actually met my goal going in. I was a couple tenths off that 1 s gap but had a really consistent and safe session otherwise.Starting 4th I had a bad start and then was slow through the chicanes which put Mick onto me. He got pretty close and I decided to stay wide coming off the straight and at that time I lost the car and ran out of road and into the wall for 6 coins of damage and last on the road. In review he wasn't as close as I thought and I should have shut the door. The real problem is that I lacked the necessary car control, but that is an ongoing struggle. Car had a bit of damage and I didn't feel any confidence on the brakes thereafter.

Further around the lap I was up to 16th and going into T1 I went around Don on the outside and alongside Roberto for 14th. I was on my racing line and about a wheel behind his nose when he moved over to get back in line for the chicane coming up and we locked wheels with me going into the wall and him spinning off in the other direction. This was my second trip to the back in 1 lap and 1 corner and in that short space I also managed to lose close to 40 seconds to JH.I drove as gingerly as I could and through some attrition got back up to Bo When he had a mistake I led him around until 3 from the end when I messed up my braking for anchors. Bo getting by put me into JH's grasp and  a lap down right at the end. So, not such a good race for my PnB debut.

On the run in with Roberto, I looked at it from above in GPLRA and I was half a car width to the left  more than I thought I was,  close to the line I normally take, with a decent amount of momentum. At the time he started coming across I was just starting to back out of it but was too far left. I think the extra few feet would have given me more margin to brake and get out  of the way. My guess is that because I overtook Don and got alongside Roberto in the same corner complex that he was unaware that I was near him and didn't hear my engine or again mistook it for Don's engine. Had he seen me I have to believe he would have gone deeper before turning in and I'd have slotted in behind him. Earlier in T1 I had a lot more momentum - enough that I didn't anticipate writing about this incident - but I guess he got the car squared up and got going well enough and we ended up in the same spot on the track with him a wheel ahead and me not able to avoid contact. Hindsight dictates that it was safer to follow him but it didn't look that way at mid corner nor that backing off later on would be a problem.I received no damage in the incident - I'd already ruined my race by myself - but I'm sorry for what the incident did to Roberto's race. I know he practiced hard for this event.

PS I was really impressed by Francois' drive today. JH 's lap in Q was great too.Andrew
