Youtube is taking a lifetime to edit them. Will add them to the video once there up25th February 2014, 11:24 at 11:24 am #249782
@mrgrieves I used to have that problem. If you’ve got a iphone/ipad I can’t recommend iMovie highly enough – so easy to edit and send straight to youtube.25th February 2014, 23:35 at 11:35 pm #249849
My highlights from Brazil
Managed to have a good start but made an error of judgment when I collided with @dazzaarcher. Also got a penalty when trying to rejoin. The rest of the race was dull apart from a really good fight with @vitreouschain . He was on my tail throughout the whole of the middle stint and pulled away after passing me.
@jonny705 @ljkobrien stewards – it wasn’t in my video yesterday as I cut it too soon, but in the video above you can see confirmation of my penalty after coming back on track. Also there’s a really good view of the @mcwoblin @vitreouschain start incident to accompany chain’s video from yesterday.
Finished 5th TBC
This was just a crazy race. I’ll let you watch the video to see why. I think we all need to tone down a bit on the aggressive driving in these races (myself included). @jonny705 you can see your first corner incident here and our slight coming together which ended your race too.
@ljkobrien @jonny705 stewards – the quality from yesterday’s uploaded video (and this one) don’t seem as good as the original copy on my phone. just in case it’s not very clear, the @mrgrieves @lint101 incident is the one coming out of turn 2 on lap 2 and not the contact at turn 1 (not sure who that’s with!) You see NHC spinning almost 360 degrees after contact.25th February 2014, 23:51 at 11:51 pm #249850
We felt that it was a unfortunate racing incident where not one driver was solely at fault. The reasons:
– Different driving lines for the three cars involved in the initial collision;
– all three cars were at different speeds going into turn 2 I.e. Your car would have lost some speed leaving the track at turn 1.
– Although ImidazoleNHC spins, there is no concrete evidence to suggest this was done intentionally. The car was spinning before it hit you and there was nothing he could of done to prevent it. We all agreed he was not at fault.
-It is also difficult to tell if he hit the kerb or if the awkward in game physics played a part.
Is this ok? Happy to provide more clarification if needed.27th February 2014, 20:46 at 8:46 pm #250105
Is there anyone who would be willing to help out with the stewards for this week? At the moment its just me and johnny, we could use another one or two people, all you have to do is have a look at the incidents listed above on the videos that have been posted here and then send your feedback to me or maddog through a private message (you need to be friends before you can send a PM so add either of us if you haven’t already)
The incidents are:
10 second penalty against @dazzaarcher caused by collision with @maddogmolloy. Race 1 Lap 4 Turn 2. Viewable on the first of maddog’s uploaded videos
10 second penalty against @maddogmolloy caused by collision with @vitreouschain. Race 1 Lap 4 Turn 2/3. Viewable on the first of maddog’s uploaded videos, straight after the first incident
10 second penalty against @mrgrieves caused by collision with @lint101. Race 2 Lap 2 Turn 2/3. Viewable on the second of maddog’s uploaded videos
Credit reimbursement for @vitreouschain caused by collision with @mcwoblin. Race 1 Lap 1 Turn 1. Viewable on the first of maddog’s videos and chain’s uploaded video
You don’t need to help with all of them but if there are any that you’d like if help out with please do!1st March 2014, 1:02 at 1:02 am #2503211st March 2014, 10:30 at 10:30 am #250339
That’s going to depend on other things now. I’ve just had to leave uni temporarily and am now looking for a job. If I find one then yeah I’m definitely still up for going! If not I’m not going to be able to afford it :/
Any word on the penalties and credits? Could you send me a message with your opinions ASAP1st March 2014, 14:10 at 2:10 pm #250359VitreousChainParticipant
@ljkobrien The message service on this website won’t work for me, so I sent it to your xbox live account.1st March 2014, 14:19 at 2:19 pm #2503602nd March 2014, 17:58 at 5:58 pm #2505772nd March 2014, 21:43 at 9:43 pm #250623
@vitreouschain Quick question. When you went into the back of maddog as he was rejoining the track following his incident with daz, did you take any damage to your front wing?2nd March 2014, 21:51 at 9:51 pm #250624
Scratch that last post, just seen from maddog’s footage that you didn’t need to pit. Okay, the results for the appeals are as follows:
@dazzaarcher penalty following collision with maddogmolloy: 2 votes to 1 in favour of overturning the penalty
@mrgrieves penalty following collision with NHC: 2 votes to 1 in favour of overturning the penalty
@vitreouschain appeal for return of credits: 3 votes to 0 in favour of not returning credits
@maddogmolloy penalty following collision with chain: 2 votes to 1 in favour of overturning the penalty.
Belated congratulations guys!
If anyone has any issues with these decisions please get in touch. Thanks.2nd March 2014, 21:56 at 9:56 pm #250625Darren ArcherParticipant
Well, what can I say. Finally my luck has turned and crossing the line first means I win my first race of my career!! I would like to thank my team, my engineer, the pit crew for such a great job, wouldn’t be possible without their dedicated work! Lotus in general for providing me such a good car that was fast everywhere. Joking aside I really enjoyed that race and it looks like McWoblin is turning into a dark horse that could take any of the top 3 spots if he keeps this form up!!2nd March 2014, 23:41 at 11:41 pm #250630
