DETAILS PER DRIVER
STB NORRIS AND IEP0VICH NL
STB Norris sends in two clips of two incidents with IEP0VICH NL. These clips show him being pushed off the track twice. We know from experience that this had to be a glitch. This was our first reaction. Of course we checked it out.
The image below shows STB Norris standing in the wall during the SC in the clip of IEP0VICH NL. P18 and P19. During this SC, IEP0VICH incurs a 20 second penalty for illegally overtaking another driver. Multiple laps.
In the clip of IEP0VICH NL in L11 and L31 STB Norris is nowhere to be seen on the track. Check his clip below or on YouTube. There is no blame. As expected, there is clearly a glitch.
As explained in person to STB Norris before, it's not always what it seems in the races. And in previous reports we have requested that we always conduct research before drivers draw their own conclusions. Despite that, we understand that frustrations can run high at the moment. General note to everyone in this.
WTZFLEX AND JDEKKER7
Great battle. Great call for earlier pit stop to inters. That was the undercut you hoped for Dekker... ;-).
LSR BERRY AND JDEKKER7
Late overtake in L2-T2 on Jdekker7, pushing him wide. Not a major incident, but the clips was send in, so we want to react on it. Funny thing is, and JDekker did mention this himself in private, that last season he was the trouble maker himself many times. After giving him the time and changes there has been a lot of progress. The racing has become much cleaner and he is more patient. In this season there are no incidents with JDekker involved. Thats great to see. This is what we also want for LSR Berry and we know he can obtain the same progress. So we carry on and leave this incident behind.
Lando is driving with controller. With no assists on, except corner racing line. This combined with wet weather conditions. We think if you can master this that is a great achievement. We want to congratulate you on your second second place in a row. For this driver of the day in Austria.
Session quality was poor. Again issues with the connection. Some drivers' start were earlier than others. This cost LSR Fourie a DT penalty. The loading time between Q2 and Q3 was long. Waiting for IEP0VICH NL and Emeraude.
The race quality was good, as always in this league. Guest driver LSR Jakes showed some muscles in this rainy session. Great Q and a win. Very well done Jakes. Very close Q between the top 3. Only 0.06 seconds. With 20 drivers on the grid good attendance. Lexidas skipped Q and joined the race. From P20 to P9. Nice one.
Imola is added in the game today (13oct2021). We will add this tracks in the events. Within three weeks time we will battle on this brand new track.
Before that, Silverstone and Hungaroring..... see you there!
