It's those rumble strips on the inside of most corners. They are all outside track limits.

Nice video Kayo, I always enjoy watching these.

You seem very conservative on your upshifts. In the past I have found it's overrevving during the downshifts which kills the BRM. I used to routinely take it up to 11K on the upshifts without any drama. (Leaving some in reserve in 6th in case I got a tow off someone).

Well, no one wants to win like that. :(

The run up to the flag was like a scene from a Chuckle Brothers sketch. "to you, to me, to you, to me" as both Bob and me tried to let the other person win it. It wasn't until I saw Bo closing extremely quickly on Prib I made the decision to accept Bob's invitation. In my opinion it was simply a racing incident, unfortunate, but we were both pushing very hard. (Well I was). I didn't expect the win, Bob had led for 24.5 laps and I had tried every line I could think of to find a way around him but none of them would give me the exit I needed onto the straights with the only real passing opportunities but he consistently got the power down better then me.

I made 3 mistakes during the race, (Well 4 if you include the usual one of allowing Bob to get ahead by T1). I put wheel on the grass in the final turn on lap 1 trying for a wide entry to get a late apex and hopefully regain the position in the drag up the straight. That put me back down in 9th with it all to do. Worked my way back up to Bob and then did the same thing somwhere around lap 15 I think into T1. Fortunately this time I didn't lose any places but was now about 700yds adrift of Bob again. Next mistake was on Lap 21 on the run down to T2. Misjudged my braking point and had to dive off track to avoid running into the back of Bob, so had a frantic last 4 laps trying to get back on his tail.

The racing between Bob and me was some of the best I can remember for a long time. No passing but I felt really comfortable at times with only a car length beteen us at 150mph The connection to the server was rock solid and it was like racing the AI it was so smooth.

The records will show I got the win, but the replay really tells a different story. The win doesn't sit comfortably with me and I hope I will be as gracious should the situation be reversed.
