    Drivers
    The car you raced at Spa is the car you will race for the remaining 4 races.

    New signups for Bahrain can choose any car but you must race that car for all the remaining races in the championship.

    This series has a formation lap, On green do not race off the grid stay behind the car in front of you in a single file.

    The pole sitter will do the formation lap not exceeding 100 km/h
    On the last corner coming on to the start finish the race will begin.

    This will also be announced in the warmup session.

    Im sorry about the start I couldnt understand why the flag waved was yellow I thought there was something wrong hence I didnt go immediately.
    I looked around and in the distance was a green flashing beacon so thats when i decided to go.

    Congratulations to the three podium takers, next race I have a better understanding of the fuel and tyres in the pits. I cannot believe my tyre stratergy, next time I will go full hard.
    Was fun racing everyone, till next time...

    Congrats Roberto and podium and finishers! Good stuff guys. Enjoyed the race even though it was a bit lonely. DQ time qualification. Not sure what happened. Maybe some kind of bug. I did a drive-thru and also a 10-second penalty stop but the race was fun nonetheless. One thing I did notice, everyone was polite. Very polite as in moving to the side so I can pass even though it was their position. Thank you? :)

    Until next time guys

    The guys in the top 7 were flying. Really hard to keep up.
    I probably did an unnecessary tire change after stint 1. Can anybody tell me if the medium tires go all the way or if you also did a tire stop?
    It felt to me that the top 6 was doing 2 x soft. Is that correct?

    I know Carl was on meds no change.

    I was on softs, no change. They lasted easily throughout the race, just like Spa.

    sorry for the contact on lap 11, I was not sure of being wrong, after seeing the replay, it's my fault.
    glad you're getting your position a few turns after.

    Night qualifing was terrible idea. When I drove car under floodlights there was awful bloom and hard to see track. It was necessary to switch off Post effects to see what's going on and after that I realize that race will be at daylight conditions. Loose qual session and start at behind. What a bad luck it was... Someone in front start lags on formation and damaged some cars due to that :)

    It was not set for night qualifying might be the track design?

    I was as surprised as everyone else when it went to night.

    Yes, we ran this track before and it's track design. I should have told the series host Nigel Middleton.
    I forgot about that. We should have informed the grid. Sorry to everybody who was inconvenienced by it.

    Hi Didier
    Yup, no problem. That,s racing. Also I didn't,t gave you enough room when I passed you last laps of the race, sorry for that. Lucky for me seemed you were having problems with your tyres so I could managed to recover the gap I lost after spinning exiting my first pit stop.
    Great racing had lots of fun!!! Love this mod. ;)
