I have taken many a picture to explain this, and I'll make a another post with those included, but basically... True braked first, but before that you were just barely alongside the rear quarter panel. It took you another 0.385 seconds before you braked for the corner.
You shot half a car width wide of the apex before the front of the car had enough grip to turn the corner... which definitely indicates to me that you were carrying too much speed, thus I can safely say that you were more focussed on gaining a place than you were making the corner safely and with consideration to other drivers.
In short, keeping your line was the last concern on your mind in that moment, and quite frankly my pictures of your driving in that instance disappoint me...
Fair enough. I take all blame for that accident then. Although I wasn't intentionally trying to throw my car up the inside to gain the place without caring about anyone else. I still get a bit twitchy when I'm along side other drivers because I'm new to this, and that's definitely something I need to work on. It was on the last lap too, so I was already nervous enough about getting my first podium, so maybe that took away my focus. :/ Sorry again.
I was also not happy about you driving ash, we talked about it and I hope you get it now. Cutting people off when you pass is not something I have seen before in this club. I can't believe you didn't feel the same bump as me. It wasn't the wall you were hitting it was me... twice!! But yet again you were way faster so...
It was a good session in the end! Race 1 was a clusterf**k of lag spikes, and though I ended up 18 seconds behind after the pits, to be 14 behind in the end abd with FL showed my pace was real. Not bad for absolutely no practice, eh?
Race Two... A pole to flag finish, was funny to see me beat my pole time after just three laps, although I missed my chance to do better with lower fuel by messing up a tad every lap...
Race 3, my favourite of the night.
Hats off to ash the whole night for his pace, and the battles on track were divine! Caught True and Ash napping after they tried to give each other position, but Ash wasn't going to give up once I got within striking distance.
After I managed to get past him before the stops, I pitted early to give True the lead lap point... but he followed me in! I was livid, had purposefully pitted earlier to do a bit of team play, had I realised I would have gone later into the race like I did in Race 2, but the battle I ended up having with Ash until the final stages was epic! I think there's a lap where Ash and I were side by side through a lot of corners and straights, but the slalom at the end of the lap was my trump card, and gave me the breakaway I needed to secure my first ever back to back win! He did get FL though, I'm gutted...
sorry for the delay Good racing the other night, just didn't have the pace. Especially all season, not my car lol. Well done to storm for winning the title.
I wont be able to make it this week due to my induction week at uni, i'm up all week, and as the championship is already wrapped up, if someone wants to run it for the night then let me know.
It's been a great few season of GTTCC, and shame this season hasn't reflected the rest. With any luck if people get settled into jobs/family and the game improves, we can try again in a few months perhaps
GTOR_True-blue-8: april,looks good, need to decide if I play GT, PCars or this now lol

David Talle: Judging by the reputation of pCARS and AC, I think AC is way better in term of realism. Wheel mandatory IMHO though There's still F1 games, great with a pad, for leagues if there's more people there !

GTOR_True-blue-8: could be worth seeing about F1, although I want to do endurance lol
Feb 1, 2016 17:07:39 GMT
David Talle: Yeah me too... for now. Probably the "Daytona effect". Wait for the F1 season to resume and it should balance again There are still unacceptable bugs on Project CARS, lot less than before though but if AC has the "right" cars I'll go for it no doubt

GTOR_True-blue-8: ah probably that's why I haven't jumped on it lol. Going to see if anyone wants to do an F1 championship
Feb 2, 2016 10:26:37 GMT
GTOR_True-blue-8: The share play, does that mean that anyone can race as well? not sure how it works

Apr 5, 2016 19:17:53 GMT
GTOR_True-blue-8: i'd like to do F1 but I don't know anyone who plays it lol
Apr 5, 2016 19:18:24 GMT
David Talle: I do, I also own Driveclub which is excellent IMO, until the next GT at least. And after nearly 1 year I finally found a working setup to play pCARS with a pad LOL
Apr 5, 2016 19:22:42 GMT
GTOR_True-blue-8: I've heard good things about Driveclub. Think im gonna see if GT6 can get going again before doing GT7
Apr 5, 2016 20:38:12 GMT
David Talle: Yeah I would've join if I had my PS3 with me :/
Apr 5, 2016 21:13:59 GMT
GTOR_True-blue-8: GTTCC is back and numbers look great! Head on over
Apr 7, 2016 12:26:45 GMT
David Talle: Massive disappointment, GT Sport looks like a PS4 version of GT6, almost same graphics, same sound, same half bakes physics (from what I see, obviously I'm waiting to try the game myself)... There's too much work for PD to catch up before GT7...
