God to see it's still alive...
After 5 1/2 weeks in hospital and 4 days at home I'm now well again and ready for driving.
Had a constant fever (+/-39°) and hard pain during breathing in my lung.
Last Saturday I woke up and it was gone. No doctor could tell me what this caused and no medicine was working.
Had the same thing nearly 20 years ago, when my father died. Took over 3 month at that time. So I think it's a psychsomatic thing.
Many posts to read for me in the forums...
Only the Mini KAD V2.0 is new for me - or is there something else I missed?
A BIG "Thank you" to all organizers for keeping the F1-VRC-2012 alive
Excelent to have you back.
Too bad that I have now bronchitis and of course it is virus based, so there's no use of antibiotics... We'll see if I am racing in Catalunya
Just quick sum of things changed during your absence:
- KAD Mini updated to 2.0 (and it still needs minor fix, not affecting it's physics though, so no horry with it.)
- Skin Pack 1 is also in use: http://downloads.gamers-crib.com/Sim...-SkinPack1.zip
- Race lenght has been now same as in 2008 Season, which in case of Melbourne is just one lap less. However change is big enough to make all cars more equal. (no one is in razor's edge about surviving without extra stop.)
There has been some queries about moving next wednesday's race by one week... And as this is Matra's series now, it's up to Matra call for move.
My personal opinion is same as all the previous seasons; There's (now even 3 races which are not counted) some space in points system to racers to allow dismiss some races and that's why races aren't moved unless there's technical problem (organizer or server missing) causing the move. Reason NOT running this series by calls of racers is the lenght of season and amount of racers; if we would start moving races due request, there should be count how many races single racer can "veto" to be moved. And as there is 30 active racers, that would mean aproximately 10-15 moved races, which again would delay drastically the series and cause it eventually drop out of the original schedule. Down side of this politics is having some races with minor attendence, but then again, season shcedule has been published in March already, so everyone have had enough time to organize their schedules so that they will miss only the least meaningful three races.
As in this case, calling move on Catalunuya will mean Monaco's steel barrier hell to be just week after the Catalunya and also having 4 weeks break between bahrain and Catalunya.
however, it's Matra's call to make the decisions.
