I'm Gergo Panker, already added you as a friend (but then it doesn't work two ways) :)

Yeah I only touched the mud a bit at a few corners, and partially cut Corkscrew (the system is pretty sensitive, I have to say) though there was a huge accident in turn one that took 3 cars off that I managed to avoid.

Off tracks arent sensitive, you have to get half the car over the line to get an offtrack. and when ya think about it thats alot!


yeah its a silly friends system. needs to be more in line of a facebook friend sort of thing.

Hey I'm famous :D


Yeah my first race today was not a success, I skid in the quick left turn before the corkscrew and 'right-left-right-left-car behind me-wall' thing happened.

You watched the wrong race btw the one I just had was great, starting from 6th again fighting up to 2nd and a very tight and clean race for keeping it.

I had issues with my internet connection so I could only join but not start a couple of races, which apparently count as races I took part in so my stats are pretty low...

I'm liking it very much now, I only had a couple of bad experiences, sometimes rookies have absolutely no idea that they are being lapped.

Oh and I had I race that I won but it doesn't show up in my stats. Can it be because it didn't count as an official race? Or did it get lost in translation, or what?

Some races aren't showing up in the results because the results server was dead. They should be counting as stats though, just not showing up in results.

rofl you got rear ended by a mustang? haha

Yeah. He stayed right in turn 1, looked like he deliberately missed the apex to signal to me to pass into turn 2. You have to be pretty committed in turn 1 if you're doing it properly, and braking for turn 2 starts on the apex of 1. So when he went wide I took that as a signal of him backing off to let me through in braking for 2. So i let off early, kept left and went passed him. I felt a smack on the left rear and 0x flashed up. I assumed I'd drifted over his nose or something. I checked the replay afterwards and he'd actually had a massive moment when he went wide to let me through. Lost the rear end, collected it up and came across and clipped my left rear. You can see the damage in the 3rd pic.

The 2nd pic is an accidental pass, putting the car a lap down. The guy braked for turn 1 (which is flat, until the apex), and then braked even more for turn 2. I had a decent gap to him, and being a Prototype I didn't expect to catch him for another few corners. I about sh*t myself when i suddenly closed over a second in just 1 corner, and hard to dart left with my wheels locked to avoid him. Luckily he seen me coming and moved wide to let me through.

It was a 29 car grid, split is at 30. So it was a massive wide range of speed, even in a single class. It was quite scary lapping some really slow Prototypes whilst they were mixed with Mustangs.
