This is what happened right after the start. I think the race got restarted.

Double yellows, yet no one slowed down. :doh:

 

Nope that was lap 5 after the restart. It was worse than the lap 1 crash that caused a restart. Teams were warned there would be no more than one restart but only me and Nico, those blue and purple cars towards the end, slowed down. 😃

After the restart?! Holy shit, Batman! I guess most people go by Colin McRae's motto then.

Re. the kids setting - I see what you mean now! I have the for kids option enabled, but I don't think I've seen the restrictions option yet. Having another look. I was surprised that it recorded the audio from my teammates as well! Very cool, that way you can really follow what's going on.

 

It's the 'made for kids' option that you specifically need to disable; which then gives you the other option.

Ah shame technical issues tanked your rightful finishing position Meers - seems like you were on for a top ten! I dropped in on the stream a couple of times and you were nailing it. Consistent, fast driving. Excellent stuff!

 

Only enduro race I've ever done is a 12-hour one at Montreal in LMP2 cars which we did at an actual venue back in about 2018. Was fun! I am still planning on dipping into ACC properly but life's a bit busy with getting my new house sorted and waiting for Kiro Jr to arrive in a few months' time.

@EuroVapeSim2's team did some good business I think. Just out of top 10 but they had their fair share of issues as well. Maybe he can tell some more about it.

Yeah I need to try write up later today what happened, was an interesting race a lot can happen in 24 hours. It's such a different experience driving endurance, you need a different skill set of driving techniques to get through it, couple crashes out of my control and we got through the full thing with only 3 track cut warnings.

We finished P13. I believe we had pace to be well within top 10 but it was not to be.

 

I spun 2 cars in the opening laps and we received 2 drive-throughs and thus went almost 2 laps down. The first I thought was justified but the second was a pretty harsh penalty for a very light tap on final corner's apex kerb where a Macca that had TC set on 1 couldnt get power down slowly spun after the contact.

 

Our pace was pretty good through the race. Some troubles getting pressures right, a slow stint on a used set of tyres and one driver tended to grain his tyres so his pace slowed down a lot towards end of stints. Unfortunately due to PC crashes and wheel issues we sat about 5 minutes in the pits. Right at the end P10 to P15 were still on the same lap within about 30 seconds and without any one of above troubles we would have been P11 at least.

Also -  @mrben09 did we ever hand out the trophy for last season?

We had no votes so its a bit tricky for me as I wasn't really there. Happy to take a quick opinion poll .....

I had one race win, on Silverstone. I think Winky deserves most of the credit here.

@Meers no I mean you're the current 'most improved' trophy holder, from Season 9, I think. But this one's for Season um, Challenge Cars. Right?

 

Oh right, I misunderstood indeed. Apologies. ☺️

And so after some through voting, everything has been counted and the Winner of the Season 9 MID is @winky

 

Our new sponsor, the NSA, would like a word, but I'll let you deal with that.
