It never happened to me before, I lost the calibration of the steering wheel between the classification and the start! The car was unmanageable, I gave up so as not to break it. Now I'm going to kick the steering wheel!

I had been testing another racing sim for an hour before I joined the server. Everything worked great. I got on the server and discovered I could not load a setup. I took a few minutes out and could not figure out why. I rejoined, and then found out my wheel did not recognize the gas pedal. I left again, worked on it and got it to work, but still could not load a setup. I could load a race setup, so I decided to just wait until the race and hope that setup loaded when we went to race.  Alas, when I got to the 1st turn. I realized I had the default setup with 122 laps of fuel. The BRM is undriveable like that. I had to leave for safety's sake.
It's a pity. Mosport is one of my favorite drives.

Pepe, I looked at the race start - I went right into you. Very sorry for the error.

Hard luck. I noticed you were connecting and disconnecting several times and I did wonder what problems you were having.

that was a ball buster... or so the phrase goes :)
i had surprised myself last nite with a 22.9.. but knew i couldn't repeat it when it mattered, still pulled in a 23+ good for p7
in practice runs i was able to do consistent 24s... but...
the start had cars ahead hesitate just a second, but that's all it took for TIm's Honda to get by on the outside - and for me, that was the race.

moved up to p5 at the finish due to 2 retirements ahead.
Tim's Honda would pull away at exit of moss, but i'd catch him at every braking area... just not enough umph from the BRM to get him on the back.

then with laps dwindling down, 6 remaining i believe TIm and i caught Niky and Pepe and Mati caught up with TIm and i :o  nose to tail but it all turned out well, as the back markers gave way, then i gave to Mati, as did Tim a few moments later -  and we were off again!
i made one lunge with 2 laps left as i was right on Tim's tail - but lost it, did a 180 and backed alongside the fencing, but righted it and carried on.
happy to say that!!

congrats to Mati for his 1st win..
Peter for his first race AND Finish
John W for ... well, i never saw you John but you finished -so good deal :D

off to Portland!

P7!

I feel like a curse has been lifted for me...

After 5 straight DNF's (and 1 no showing)

I made some mistakes in the first couple of laps... which cost me dearly...

BUT!!! i regained control and composure and started to work my way up...

With a daring pass on the start/finish straight... and then later on missed my opponent when he spin out in front of me...

You know the drill guys...

Video is gonna be live tomorrow.

Well what a race that was, I completely agree with Bruce about our race, donít think Iíve had so much fun in all of my oAo days, was it had work? You bet it was, but Bruce is such a gentleman, he had a few chances, but it looked to me a bit risky so his judgment got the better of those chances, he is one of the few drivers out there that you can drive with, and know heís not going to do any thing silly,

Many thanks Bruce for being part of one of the most enjoyable races Iíve ever been involved in.

                                Regards Tim.

What. A. Race.

I've been looking for a race like this for so much time... After a year of trying and trying to get it, finally it happened and I could win a race in 1967 original mod. Four or five months ago I refused to keep trying as I focused on Mybroga S52 Div B F2 championship, even at one point I thought I could never have a decent pace in 1967 mod.

"Times they are a changin"...

Okay, so I was quite nervous on qualy but then in the race I had a good start, George and me moved well and went in a 2-sec gap for about ten laps. Then some trouble with lapped cars sent me off in T6 after the jump and delayed me, but a few laps later George had some trouble and I could recover P1. Had a great time racing on the edge (Mosport doesn't forgive any mistakes).

Thank you all for a magnificent race!

Now, omw to Portland!!

In my continuing effort to become the highest climber for the season in D2 --- an award that I view as being deserved by a driver who is so pathetically bad that he has absolutely nowhere to go but up --- I thought my only qualifying lap of 4:45 would easily be the worst. But no! ZZ showed up behind me, not showing any qualifying time at all. That will be the last time I make that mistake. If I am going to set a qualifying time that is nothing but embarrassing, I want that time to be unbeatable, so to speak.

My other quest --- that of staying on the track for 100% of my laps --- came to a quick end before I'd traveled even 18 inches. Just like the start two weeks ago, a Honda lost it in the first few seconds and bounced me into the weeds. The collision reporting program, strangely enough, shows no contact between Pete's car and mine. Don't worry about it, my man. I don't think even Surtees could make that pig go in a straight line when the green flag drops.

Thus did I settle in for yet another hour of grinding it out. Mick went off on an early lap and settled in behind me on L3. Even though we were lapping at a nearly identical pace, I let him by and followed him for about 13 laps. At that point, lap 18, my Cooper found itself right behind Niky's Brabham. Mick was the last of at least four cars that had overtaken Niky when he'd gone off the track at three or four different places. I figured I'd be by the Romanian in two laps, maybe three. Not a chance. My old teammate apparently had decided that he'd had enough of off-track excursions and slammed the door shut every time I got within striking distance. I know that I punched him in the ass at least twice, but apparently it was soft enough so that it didn't register as a contact. I didn't think that looking at a BT's tailpipe for 20 laps could be much fun, but it was better than having genital surgery, I think.

And today's highest climber award goes to . . . oh, God, me again. Sigh.

I'm disappointed that I could not make todays race.  Watched the replay as soon as I could. As Chief Race Steward. I was mighty impressed. Outside of Peter losing control at the start everybody drove very well on the first lap.  Congrats to the finishers

And for the rest of the race too. It was only the second time this year that D2 had fewer collisions in a race than did D1.

Very demanding track, but Always loved and funny to race.  Qual in line with my practice times:  mid  1.24.  8th on the grid.  Good start, after some settling laps I was behind Bo,  Initially the gap was around 1s, but I knew that Bo was much more faster than me, so I expected that with the race evolution the gap would have increased.  And  this occurred, also because, starting at mid race I suffered a terrible understeering, not a good situation especially on this track.  I have also to report an off track at corner #2 and I was lucky to have not broken anything.  At the end  6th place that was my objective for this race.  But the most important thing to report is the great fun. On this I have to thanks Bo for having bilt and maintained this fantastic League
Congratulations to Mati for the win, he lapped me as a rocket with the same car !!! and to the podium.

Ciao
Roberto
