Not your line sunshine....

Stewards meeting


This is the bonnet view from Mr Nelsters car

Right then if you watch I had the run on Nelly from the corner before and was along side him all of the way along the straight and ahead just before the corner.

Looks like nothing more than a racing incident to me smile

Correct, but "racing incident"' doesn't mean "one of those things." You would have been penalised for that because:

a) you weren't on the racing line (yes, straights have racing lines too)

b) you didn't have a sufficient speed advantage to carry the overtaking manoeuvre

c) you were knowingly (if you understand the rules that is!) impeding me with your attempted overtaking manoeuvre

Do you really believe its acceptable to drive the full length of the straight off of the racing line, with no real speed advantage, then force the car on the racing line to brake, in turn causing any following cars to brake on the fastest part of the circuit, because you reckon you could squeeze the front of your car a foot past mine, 20 feet before the apex of the corner? confused

You would of course be absolutely entitled to force me to yield in a normal hairpin or tighter bend, but going side by side at 150mph on a straight with a kink isn't acceptable. What you should have done was draft me and then step out once through the turn. You were never going to complete that turn however much you argue and backing off right at the apex doesn't get you off the hook!

I have to race the circuit ahead of me, not the driver behind. It's not my responsibility to second guess a dive bomber. It's his responsibility to make that move stick without impeding and/or endangering other drivers, which you were never going to do.

And them's the rules. tongue

You know my views on Drive club when we all took the plunge on the release of the game,you for some reason Swanny decided it was a good idea to buy it again having previously traded it.

If your all having fun and enjoying it then thats all that counts,but having weeks of problems killed and love i had for this game…….Bigtime.

At this point I'd like to add that this is just a game and no harm with have come to you if I had decided to go ahead with my move tongue

Lol! You are the one who set up the steward's enquiry! I have absolutely no problem with you causing that. That's racing. But you do need to own up to it! I spent most of last night apologising to Matt for nicking his back end accidentally, but as you can see by my latest video, sometimes you just can't avoid the numptys!

I have a video of how you overtake on that particular corner, if you actually do have the speed to carry it off. Inevitably though, it's difficult to regain the perfect racing line and the target simply regains the position on the inside.

As I said, you would be absolutely, categorically, unequivocally correct if that were a hairpin or tight bend. Not there though, not ever. And it's bad manners to claim to be in the right, be proven totally wrong and then wheel out the "It's only a game" card.

Man up and hold your hands up!

Here from 2:05 onwards is how even with the speed to get past, you still don't win that corner. So nah nah na nah nah! tongue
