    GPL_protest picked up 6 incidents in the race.

    Ohhh, I have seen I was shared in
    four
    of them.
    Could it be...my own tool has a grudge against me!


    Slightly uneasy/slide start, but everything went ok, a pleasure to see so many experienced drivers on server with quick reactions.
    Not me. That's not my strong point. The situation with roo in the middle of the steet was typical for me. I couldn'tt decide at which side I could pass by…

    @Bjorn: I wished you haven't quited the race.
    It seems to be a misunderstanding. My plan was to stay on the outside to leave you room for passing me on the inside. I braked earlier than normal because I was in fear to come of the grass.
    All in all the better solution would be next time to let you (and the follower) pass at the long straight like I do in the most of this situations. So it was my own fault that we get this dodgy situation. So I have no reason to lament.
    Such things will happen in the future again. In my side it's better to continue the race if it's possible. So the remaining drivers don't feel lonely…

    Grats to Robert and all finishers.

    - lol , thats what you get for being so good at developing stuff Olaf. Its a wonderful little program this , it would be practically impossible to review a whole race each time without it. And it picks up everything without exception so take heed for the future fellow drivers. Real big brother stuff.

    Problems at work meant I made it onto the server with around 2 minutes of qualifying left so only time for an out lap and 1 flying lap. Was in such a rush it was done with race fuel so was pleased not to be last at the start.

    Managed to pass Olaf at T1 and set about harrassing tagamago. Finally a few laps later got the exit off the final turn I wanted and was able to out drag him down to T1. For the next few laps he was over me like a cheap suit and although I was able to pull a gap by T1 he was back on my tail by Club house until he lost it. From then on the race settled down. Passed Pelle after one of his pit stops but let him "unlap" himself next lap once his tyres were back up to temp Picked up a few positions due to others misfortunes and with about 6 to go my main concern was not opening the season by being lapped by Rob as anytime I can finish on the same lap as him I consider it a win. So 12th -> 7th, I'll take that in such exhalted company. Shame about the livestream, We seem to have a few followers as I saw some chat (Complaining about it not working) when I switched across to watch it after the race.

    Great turn out and a good cross section of chassis.

    Grats to the podium and all finishers.

    Can't wait until the next one.

    I couldn't agree more. I have raced against Robert for a number of years & beating him even in far superior machinery is very satisifying. I'm pysched that Robert has joined this championship

    Thanks guys, I'm glad I've joined this league. But I'm just another racer just like you. That said, I do enjoy racing more than ever. I'm confident the grid will fill up even more with some more well deserved attention

    What I meant by this line, it was because at the start, Rainer gets a lot of wheel spin & goes almost across the track. When this happens, many times it ends in a huge start crash, but here...no one panicked, really nice.

    Considering we drive without grid edit its a small miracle that the starts have been as clean as they have. I particularly like this little piece of racing history : "With 30 seconds to go and the engine notes rising, an official was seen wandering amongst the cars, trying to persuade Rodriguez to move back a bit! As he turned to Rindt's car the flag dropped and Hulme and Surtees were completely put off as they avoided the man, and they in turn baulked those behind them. More by luck than judgment the man was not killed, and he joined the other race officials by the side of the track."

    From the Zandvort race in 67 as covered by motorsports magazine.

    (imagine the heart rate of that dude once he realised what was happening)

    I,m agree, there and then I was in doubt of the common rules for this situation after the crash. This is an example of that I learn of. GPL is so interesting to master; driving, setups, memorize tracks, rules, strategy, concentration and lot more, here is always more. Again, this was a fantastic race and very near to real, nobody can say it’s boring. Here a lot of action happened (as it can in the real F1-races).
    I did a lot of things right (too), at qual, two quick (ice cold) reactions, when on grass, brake earlier next corner, control at the start and even a try of passing. Kyalami is one of the extra fun tracks, but it’s not to relax, for me only the sf-straight to look at Pribluda…
    Thanks a lot for great community, organizing and videos! Now coming testing for next race.

    No surprise that Robert was the victor. Well done, RF. The surprise is that the top seven runners at the flag were all on the lead lap with Rainer less than 20 seconds down in P2. That's some drivin', imo. And Iestyn not far behind still in the Ferrari. Great job all 'round there, gys.

    14 drivers came under starter's orders. Kool! We get many more and we'll need pre-qualifying!

    A good race from my POV. I chased Olaf for quite some time before getting by in the fracas involving he, Pelle and Tagomago at half distance. Only other drama was avoiding Roo on Lap19 with his quick spin at Clubhouse. A close call, that.

    Nice to see that our races have migrated over to iGOR. I've already tested a lap there.
