Just tell me, why does the back end of the Arbarth have castors on it?

I think that the car set on the server is wrong.

No little ones on the server at the moment. Big fa(s)t Mustangs and so. Change of plan or did I get on the server too soon?

Was that you creaping past the pits? I ducked out from behind the car in front and found you almost parked on the piece of track that I wanted.

Hope I didn't end your race. I took some damage but was able to carry on.

Sorry.

EDIT: Ooops! No it was Dan that I belted. Same story as above. Sorry Dan, didn't expect to find you there.

It happen to me also at this place; I saw a car in the air - yours- then I get a strong video lagging and finish in the dish...

@Clive,
No problem Clive and sorry for my walking pace.I was trying to regain speed after an untidy exit of the fast corner to the start finish line which sent me across the track into the pit wall. Your nudge certainly helped making things move again. In fact to an extend that I summersaulted over the fence into the infield. Found my way back and managed to continue my race albeit with a lap down which took the pressure off so I could enjoy my racing even more.
That was the longer version of saying: That's racing.

Cheers, Dan

When I looked at the replay and saw that you had cleared the fence I was impressed to see you still running later on.

Same with Dom. I think that he ended up the wrong side of the fence at the start of the straight.

He did, following contact with me.....I've checked the replay, and there was a big lag that ended up with our cars no longer alongside each other but actually sharing the same bit of road, the result of which was Dom flying like he'd been hit by a Tomahawk Cruise missile. I waited because I suspected this was the case, although I felt no contact, utterly ruined what was a really good, close battle we were having.

I noticed that someone was warping during qually but crashed in my attempts to hit the "Tab" key to find out who it was.

With a little help from my friends...

Not really. Initially my poor Mini was just rolling. It was only when it got right up to the fence that it actually jumped over it. Even for me it's quite hilarious in the replay. Equally funny was my consequent cross country excursion with only the Mini's little head bobbing in and out of sight of the tarmac bound contestants.

I told you to 'Go' because I'm of the opinion that in a case like this, where the disadvantaged party has no chance of a speedy recovery at all the offending party should just continue their normal race when given the blessing of the disadvantaged party. What's the point of having someone idling around a race track for a whole lap? It's immersion killing, puts two people out of the race rather than one and might even hinder other drivers.
I'm the first to support gentleman racing but I think in a case like this, it's taking it too far. When the situation is irreparable, a 'lap of shame' is not going to undo it. We're all old farts grown-ups. We should be able to recognize when it serves no purpose for the offender to just hang about and greenlight them in such a case.

As a compensation the disadvantaged party gets needling rights for at least a month. Which you will suffer....

I like it little enough when it IS my fault Dom, but in this one we have a nice gap between the two cars one second, then the cars are intermingled the next, which then resulted in your poor little Mini exiting stage left at a rate of knots no longer on it's wheels, catapulted away like it was being fired from an aircraft carrier......But, we were both trying to leave racing room, I could have run down the inside a few times, and you could have chopped my nose off more than once, it was an unsatisfactory way to end the situation all round...
