I really need to participate, but damn I suck.

Practice would make you suck less. I've played about 130 hours now, and I'm only starting to get a handle on the more difficult cars. No amount of practice is going to make my reaction times much better though.

I can recommend a youtuber named "gab on dirt". He has some very good videos on Dirt Rally, and explains some of the fundamentals. He also race with a gamepad, and his setup helped me control the car better. The guy is really good.

The best Monaco event for me, at least compared to all the times that I went downhill in the snow or ice sectors.

stage 1: clean
stage 2: clean
stage 3: clean
stage 4: clean
stage 5: 1 spin and 2 crashes (both almost dnf)
stage 6: 1 small crash
stage 7: clean

I think I finished well especially since I only started to play recently. I was just happy that on the long stage I beat my personal best, despite that my practice wasn't really going well. After I screwed up the night stage, I just focused on finishing stages, since I didn't have the chance to move up.

This was my first ever online racing and I am happy to participate.
I wish more people from the 31 would race.

Finished just a bit ahead of Edmene, despite managing only one or two clean stages. Driving the modern four wheel drives doesn't feel quite as satisfying to me as some of the other classes, and of course Monaco always does its best to try to murder me. Anyway, looking forward to the next event.

EDIT:

Happy to have you in the league! We've had events with only four or five participants, but I think this is still the longest running GOL league to date?

jegmancsI wish more people from the 31 would race.
That would indeed be nice. The more the merrier.

I guess that you didn't lose so much time in the stages as I did in the 5th stage.
After losing so much time in stage 5 I lost confidence and this hampered my chances of retrieve some of the time lost.

Indeed, that would make the league more diverse and fun.
