Three of the short stages in Greece went rather well for me. The last stage was just painful. It started with a huge crash, then I fell off the road around the middle, and to top it all off I took a stupid penalty right at the end. The first two stages weren't brilliant either.

I'm not sure trying to finish the league events early in the week was a good idea. I'm just too tired to concentrate properly on weeknights.

Went terribly badly for me also, lucky that Starving had troubles also.

S1: Wheel came loose from my table, crashed into trees.
S2: Spin
S3: Clean
S4: Flat tire on the last split, not huge amount of time lost i guess
S5: Went straight in one corner, crash into cars, reverse needed
S6: 10 sec for false start


edited: flat tire wasnt on the 5th stage end but 4th

Wow I had a great 99% clean run. Thought I did really well. But both you and starving beat me while having all these issues.
Maybe I am being to careful. I admit I am scared as shit of getting a puncture now. I am going to need to step it up a bit

First Post updated. Next Up. UK.

Kid of sad that I missed Greece. It's my favorite.

Anyway, UK went fine. One crash on the third stage, a few close ones, lots of really small mistakes which add up.

Skully, I fell you. Clean runs and still getting beat by such huge margins is kind of disappointing but on the other having my simulated driver theoretically being alive in the real world at the end of an event is not bad either.

Two observations:

1. Manual windscreen wipers are stupid and made me panic once because I forgot that it's enabled and where it's mapped to
2. Changing the settings of a car really can make a difference. I like the Ford Fiesta much more with firm dampers and suspension, especially on icy roads.

The thing with clean runs is that its slower driving when you are more careful, i could do that also, but i want to push it on the limit and then mistakes happen more often

1. I have automatic wipers, didn't even know that you can set them to manual, have to investigate if i have some free buttons, on the locations i can use during driving.

2. Changing settings makes huge difference and depends on the car as well. I didn't enjoy Fiesta much, but then again driving styles are different or i didn't find a good setup for Fiesta. But now i'm too used to Hyundai that if i drive anything else from 2010 group they all feel too alien for me

Skully commented on 21 February 2018 at 2:37 am UTC

I used too love the Fiesta. But I find it feels too loose now. It makes me feel like I am going a lot faster than I really am.
I might change to one of the others.

I was meaning to join the next possible thing, but I was wondering if I could somehow join mid-season and collect DNFs with the rest of you guys for the remaining season?
