Are you on Peters server? If not would be a good idea to try? :)

Just off the top of my head I'm wondering if it could be your phone lines upload speed with so many riders connected?

Well done guys! Nurb, Alone and Fin congratulations on the Podium

Good race. Nice and Clean. Not a single Core (That i know of) And race from the first attempt!!



I honestly couldn't belive how quick the start came and went? Normally it takes ages for everyone to get on track, Fart about, revving and moving. But Tonight not a single issue, all to track, and out went the lights. I was looking around to see if anyone had been left out of the start it went so quick!

Again, well done guys. I'll be doing this again at some point :P

P.S. Nurb, you are hear by banned from all future races.... 3 seconds a lap faster than 2nd is just unnacceptable ;) (1:47.853 was you Race fastest lap, 2nd was Alone with 1:50.136)

Thanks Matty and thanks to all pilots.

It was my first online race and it was great (even not finishing the race). Let me say sorry to the pilots that I made crash, specially the one on the start, but the "start system" was new to me and didn't expect that behaviour on the bike. (it was half braked before the start and rpm went too high too quick).

I had some issues before the quali (phone call). And during the race it was clear that I need many many many more practise to be near of being competitive.

I hope I could join more races in the future.

Un Saludo!

good fun, thanks guys!   ;D
a pity i'm suffering these huge frame drops - i had a freaking awesome start, and was about to take the lead when a huge spike lag/whatever sent me revving off int o the sidewall.
if i can figure out why i suffer these spikes it will be worthwhile racing online for me. if it persists, there's just no chance.
seemed to improve as the race went on, but after crashing at least twice a lap initially all due to frame drops, there's not much racing left once it stabilises.
i never suffer these issues offline, but online it's becoming a race-breaker...

Nice and fun race :)

Congrats to all, specially to nurb (Count my vote for a banned). Sorry for the one that I crashed in the first lap (who was 2nd, finpower?), I was seeing appear and desappear the riders in front of me, and that was the only trouble I get today. No lag at all for the first time in my GPB experience! and no using LAA hack.
Nice organisation, nice track, bike and people, a pleasure to ride again.

... I was seeing appear and desappear the riders in front of me...

i had this as well, but it was a minor annoyance compared to my frame issues.
@matty, no i wasn't using the LAA hack.
i d/l'd the track yesterday, did about 15 laps offline with NO frame issues whatsoever.
during online practise and qualy, however, i started getting these huge frame-drops at least twice per lap, essentially resulting in 2 crashes per lap.
it would happen once each time i crosses the start/finish line - a HUGE drop, like frozen for 2 seconds kind of drop, and then usually a lesser drop at another point of the lap.
i'd say the first 5 laps were the worst, but it gradually seemed to settle down and got less with each lap after that.
of course, for anyone relatively competitive in nature, those first 5 laps were so bad for my race that i'm surprised at myself for not just rage quitting, lol.
nevertheless, frame gripes aside, a very enjoyable and fun time, indeed. :D
