SESSION SUMMARY 

For some reason the 50% session was glitched by multiple incoming SC's without any incidents. The 1st real SC's was on behalf of LSR JPotti. Thomex and LandoFanClub crashed and DNF after this 1st SC. No SC on this. The real 2nd SC was with a four driver DNF, Viscous, Stef, Timo and Graat. After this the game could not handle it anymore and put out the SC with no incidents. All at around T12. We decided to do a restart in the form of a 25% race with original starting grid.

The moment things like this happen and actions have to be taken almost immediately, it is not likely that all messages will be read by the host and that all opinions can be heard. It will be read after the session and lessons can be learned from any decision. However, at the moment the actions must be taken quickly given the time, pressure and for practical reasons. Not all information is available. We are aware that some riders may feel disadvantaged. On the other hand, everyone should also realize that no one can know how a previous race would have ended.

In view of the above, we believe that we have made the right decision. If you think otherwise, we would like to hear from you.

Only the 25% will be reported as that is the race that mattered in the end.


RESULTS


DETAILS PER LAP

L13-T2
Escaapo and JDekker7.
Before turn 2 JDekker was ahead of Escaapo. In the picture below we can see this. Escaapo left little room and hits JDekker at the side. This little hit caused Escaapo to bounce back to the right. This makes T2 difficult to take. Has to brake full (indicator full red), hits JDekker in T2 and spins. Did JDekker had to leave more space in T2. Maybe this was possible, but at the start after T1 JDekker was in front and trouble began before T2. Therefore we consider this as a race indident.

We are sorry for that first session glitch. We hope you understand that some decisions are not always in everyone advantage. You had some great pace, with also a good change for big points. It also could have been worse. We just can't tell the future. Thank you for your understanding guys. Hope the explanation above is understandable for the situation.
