    Cars are assigned already.

    But you can of course do us a favour and make sure that we can run these events in the future too, by buying them.

    Very good races. I suggest a race only with the WTCR's drivers and then another with all, drivers and simracers. Is would good to see fight between Guerrieri, Girolami, Azcona, Monteiro, etc for the first positions

    I've partecipated in the training servers with them, and Guerrieri was actually really fast, faster than Dornieden on the high 51s.
    He could have challenged simracers, unfortunately that wasn't the case.

    Round 1 - Hungaroring

    Stewards: Robert Wiesenmüller / Mike Bell


    Server 1 Race 1

    The race direction reviewed the start + sector 1 by default.

    Race direction vs. Keithley, Lap 1, Turn 2
    Keithley goes in late into turn 2, and touches Löhner, who gets a slide, but keeps his position. Keithley brakes, but Garcia behind him hits Keithley who is a lot slower than expected. Cihan behind cannot avoid them. Garcia is trapped between Cihan and Keithley and spins off.
    This is a combination of factors. Keithley causes the situation by diving on Löhner, but Garcia also could have driven to the inside of Keithley.
    Jack Keithley - warning

    Bánki vs. Keithley, Lap 10, Turn 1-2
    Keithley is battling with Brzezinski, who gets a better run out of turn 1. Keithley, who is on the right, tries to squeeze in behind Brzezinski, brakes on the straight, and then chops of Bánki, trying to fit a gap that is not big enough for him and blocking Bánki in the process. There are no massive consequences, therefore half penalty, but this is not fair driving from Keithley.
    Jack Keithley - 3 points

    Server 1 Race 2

    The race direction reviewed the start + sector 1 by default.

    Race direction vs. Keithley, Lap 1, Turn 1 and 2
    Keithley goes into a gap that doesn’t exist in turn 1, hits Cihan and costs Cihan 3 positions. On the straight, he chops off Bánki and costs him the momentum. Into turn 2, he drives into Dornieden who gets sent wide, and Keithley himself goes into a half spin.
    Way too agressive driving from Keithley at the start of the race.
    Jack Keithley - 12 points - 2 strikes
    Keithley is one strike away from a race ban, and received a half penalty + warning. He should be extremely careful in the remaining races.


    Race direction vs. Brzezinski / Bánki, Lap 1, Turn 1
    Brzezinski and Bánki make contact in turn 1. Bánki goes for an early apex, while Brzezinski is a bit fast, but looks like he could have held the line.
    Racing incident

    Race direction vs. Monteiro, Lap 1, Turn 1
    There is a lot of contact between the WTCR drivers, Werle, Barna and Kurbanov. Monteiro goes in too hot, and causes contact which sends Langeveld off. Due to the confusing circumstances, we leave it at a...
    Warning - Tiago Monteiro

    Race direction vs. Engstler, Lap 1, Turn 1-2
    Engstler goes for a gap behind Ehrlacher, but cuts across the nose of Guerrieri. Guerrieri is forced across the nose of Kurbanov, which spins Guerrieri into Werle (ping plays a role).
    Engstler goes onto the grass, spins into Michelisz, who as a result spins into Ehrlacher.
    Guerrieri spins into Girolami. Kurbanov brakes, Tassi cannot avoid him and spins Kurbanov.
    Engstler should be more careful here, although no one could predict these consequences.
    Luca Engstler - 6 points - 1 strike

    Heinemann vs. Wisniewski, Lap 13, Turn 1
    Wisniewski tries to go for a late switchback against Heinemann, but misjudges it, costing Heinemann 3 positions.
    Nikodem Wisniewski - 6 points, 1 strike

    Strikes:
    Jack Keithley - 2
    Nikodem Wisniewski - 1
    Luca Engstler - 1

    Due to a problem with the Ningbo full layout, we will switch for round 3 to Ningbo Full (no chicane)!

    Round 2 Slovakia Ring

    Stewards: Robert Wiesenmüller / Mike Bell


    Server 1 Qualifying

    Dornieden vs. Brzezinski, 5:50 before the end
    Brzezinski is on a flying lap, but 6 tenths down on his best time after sector 3. Dornieden is on a flying lap behind him. Brzezinski blocks Dornieden in the final corner. If he would have started the lap at least, it would be understandable, but he immediately escapes back to pits.
    Kuba Brzezinski - 3 points

    Bánki vs. several drivers, 3:20 before the end
    There is a traffic jam in qualifying, which blocks drivers on their flying laps.
    It is initially caused by Girolami slowing down, but then several drivers slow down as well. Michelisz finds himself in the lead and slows down again. Tassi and Csuti make contact.
    Instead of going past, the other drivers sit in the line and don’t pass the other cars, which increases the effect.
    Very hard to see without qualifying replay, and confusing scene in general.
    Brzezinski, Löhner, Dornieden, Baldi, Csuti, Michelisz, Girolami, Tassi, Guerrieri - warning

    Dornieden vs. Csuti, 2:15 before the end
    Before the final corner, Csuti slows down and lets through Baldi, but slots right back in infront of Dornieden, whose lap gets ruined. Unlike the previous scenes which are a bit more confusing, it’s clear here that Csuti actively blocks Dornieden.
    Zoltan Csuti - 6 points, 1 strike

    Server 1 Race 1

    The race direction reviewed the start + sector 1 by default.

    There was an incident involving Frigotto, but since it was his own fault and he was the only one disadvantaged, we take no action.

    Wisniewski vs. Heinemann, Lap 5, Turn 3
    Heinemann goes for a late move into turn 3. The door is open when Heinemann commits, and Wisniewski closes the door when Heinemann is alongside. Heinemann then pushes himself through. It’s not exactly a clean pass and a late move, but the reason for the contact is also that Wisniewski shuts the door late when Heinemann has an overlap.
    No action

    Bánki vs. Heinemann, Lap 7, Turn 8
    Heinemann goes for a late move on Bánki, who himself is alongside Nagy. Bánki backs out, Heinemann makes contact with Nagy and passes both of them.
    The move is also not entirely clean, since Heinemann makes contact with Nagy to take the position. He does not do anything wrong towards Bánki.
    Tim Heinemann - warning

    Nagy vs. Heinemann, Lap 8, Turn 10
    Heinemann goes for another dive, this time on Brzezinski and this time really aggressive. He brakes off the racing line, later than all other cars. Brzezinski changes his line, at first it is acceptable because Heinemann is far away, but then he keeps coming across, which is also not fair. But at this stage he will get hit by Heinemann if he stays on the racing line too. Heinemann hits Brzezinski and both get sent wide. Heinemann half spins infront of Nagy, who has no chance to avoid it. Heinemann then cuts of Nagy again by driving back onto the racing line, when Bánki is on the inside. Nagy loses 2 places.
    Tim Heinemann - 6 points, 1 strike
    Kuba Brzezinski - warning


    Nagy vs. Fiduci, Lap 10, Turn 8
    Fiduci tries to make a move into turn 8. Nagy brakes hard and defends. Fiduci tries to avoid, but still pushes him. Nagy is on the outside, and Fiduci runs him off the road. It is contributed a bit by Guerrieri, who passes Fiduci himself, but still unfair driving from Fiduci.
    Gianmarco Fiduci, 6 points, 1 strike

    Server 1 Race 2

    The race direction reviewed the start + sector 1 by default, but there were no incidents.

    Baldi vs. Dornieden, Lap 1, Turn 3
    Dornieden goes for a late move on Antonov, which sends him sliding into Baldi. Baldi loses 2 places, Dornieden gains 2.
    Alexander Dornieden, 6 points, 1 strike

    Baldi vs. Dornieden, Lap 1, Turn 10
    Dornieden makes side by side contact with Baldi twice to keep his position. It’s not too bad, but it is still unfair, as Dornieden uses the contact physics to keep his car ahead.
    Alexander Dornieden, warning

    Nagy vs. Dornieden, Lap 5, Turn 1
    Dornieden passes Nagy. The initial move is good, but out of the corner they are side by side, and Dornieden is squeezing Nagy on the exit. Similar to the Baldi scene, but a bit worse. Half penalty for consistently using this.
    Alexander Dornieden, 3 points

    Baldi vs. Keithley, Lap 9, Turn 8
    Keithley goes for a cutback move on Baldi. There is a bit of contact, initially by Keithley, but Keithley himself gets pushed by Antonov which pushes Baldi. On the exit. Keithley leaves little room, but we think it is just about enough, as the runoff counts as track in this corner.
    No action

    Guerrieri vs. Heinemann, Lap 11, Turn 8
    Guerrieri is defending his position hard, goes slightly on the grass in turn 7 and brakes on the inside for turn 8. Heinemann brakes really late, but also gets hit himself by Fiduci.
    Fiduci himself gets pushed by Brzezinski, but that also happens because Fiduci comes across Brzezinski.
    The big loser of the situation is Guerrieri.
    Tim Heinemann - 3 points
    Gianmarco Fiduci - 3 points


    Wisniewski vs. Fiduci, Lap 12, Turn 8
    Fiduci goes for a late move on Wisniewski. The move itself is borderline ok, as Wisniewski again leaves very little room. But on the exit, Fiduci squeezes Wisniewski off the road.
    Gianmarco Fiduci, 6 points, 1 strike
    Fiduci needs to leave more room on other cars. He is on his final warning. Next penalty = raceban.


    Strikes:
    Jack Keithley - 2
    Gianmarco Fiduci - 2
    Nikodem Wisniewski - 1
    Luca Engstler - 1
    Alexander Dornieden - 1
    Zoltan Csuti - 1
    Tim Heinemann - 1
