    This is your rookie season with ESR @PresidentSmug? That was an Overly aggressive race with excessive Blocking, cutting off other drivers to maintain position and Bumper to Bumper chaos. Felt more like frustration. That being said Indy rules

    “9.3.2 Blocking – A Driver must not alter his/her racing line to pursuing Drivers.” And

    “I think there’s a difference between defending and blocking in the IndyCar world,” Hunter-Reay explained. “Blocking is using your mirrors and moving your car in reaction to the car behind. Defending is taking a proactive move and defending the inside line or defending whichever line you want to defend. It has to be proactive here.

    We all want to win but i wont take out another driver to keep my position. Last thing i want is to spin or spin someone else

    That race was nothing like the previous seasons of ESR racing I’ve been a part of. I hope you have better experiences in future races.

    Cheers Genghiz

    So Race2 was full of incidents etc here is my explanation and pov, please leave verdict or comments I am not offended just always learning :)

    Race incident 1
    Matt Bailey - Citroen #33
    Andy "Baddog" Blade - Cruze #7
    Marek Ambrosiewicz - Cruze #4

    Not sure but i think Matt or Marek got drive thru ?
    Matt catches Marek and no way for me to avoid IMO just racing incident
    Verdict: I was on the line and no crazy maneuvers ?

    Race incident 2
    Andy "Baddog" Blade - Cruze #7
    Ismail Yakubu - Lada #15
    Paul Darke - Lada #14

    Imo racing incident Paul is slow out of last corner (no offense Paul) , Ismail is held up and looks to be going round outside of Paul i seem to have faster line out of the last turn and draft included, as my speed is increasing Ismail move across the front of me to go round Paul and we glance paint!! re entering track we collide again resulting in Ismail spinning out
    Verdict: I was on the line and no crazy maneuvers ?

    Race incident 3
    Andy "Baddog" Blade - Cruze #7
    Tony Vercetty - Citroen #9

    Imo racing incident just 2 different lines and looks to me like Tony drifts out into me unfortunately resulting in him spinning
    Verdict: I was on the line and no crazy maneuvers ?



    I apologize if any are deemed to be my fault

    @Andy Blade no need to post video of accidents you were involved in to check if you are faulty. If someone wants to report any misconduct during last race then please send a PM to me, Martin, Chris, Tim or Mike with video as proof. Then if contested by the other driver(s) we'll proceed according to the rules (submissions of videos to 5 random ESR members and voting to determine if someone is at fault). Thanks

    Ah man, Kahn, I was looking for you after the race. I couldn't remember who I made contact with in the esses. Very sorry about clipping your front end on the right hander. I swing pretty wide there and the spotter waited until I was already turning in to say car right. I had no time to correct my line. I didn't even feel the contact, just saw you a little sideways in my mirror. Very sorry about that, I try to stay clean but something like that, that is out of my control (slow spotter), makes me feel bad. Hope it didn't damage you.

    Well must admit after voting for wtcc at first kinda regretted it but just love these bad boyz !!
    After first few rounds racing is close and fierce (maybe too fierce ?) but i think because cars are closely matched makes overtakes hard , and so results in pouncing on other driver error and little bumper to bumper door to door racing (fun i think)! Imo for most part racing is good and seems some instances of crashes cars don't even touch ?
    Maybe I am guilty too but reminder to all drivers try to respect everyones race not just our own!
    I remember when I first started online with you guys and over at RD I would often let guys by as I knew I could not hold them back without incident. Been a championship and more confident in traffic my battles have become real fun again imo and rivalries formed
    Finally hats off to the real drivers now we understand why overtaking is hard and crashes happen :) on too green hell !!

    *Important message*

    Ok guys, We are approaching mid season for this champ and the next race is a big one "THE Green Hell"
    I have had a lot of discussion since the last race with quite a few members about the general status of the champ.
    I am very happy with the skill on display, The field is very competitive.
    But ...
    There is a general consensus that the "feeling" on the track is quite aggressive. More so than any other champ we've done.
    Yes it could be due to the nature of the car and how on par each car are or how its not easy to get a pass.
    While i also enjoy door to door fighting i would like for everyone to take a step back and be more "gentlemen like" on the track.

    I have seen and witnessed too many time some "moves" that there was no way the person wasn't aware that the other driver was right there, yet still take that line or not care about the other person.

    Yes the prizes are good and it fun to win. But i don't like this "WIN at all cost" attitude. Winning does not give you the biggest prizes listed as this is still a raffle and someone who finished last in the champ might still win the biggest prize listed.

    So in closing, Like i said above, let's please take a small step back on the aggressiveness.
    We have the skill, now lets have the mindset.



    *Ps, Let's not start filling the thread here about this. Just click agree and talk to me if any concern :)

    Hi guy's, I was lucky enough to have some decent practice and raced 2-3 guy's on ESR server, one thing that I want to point out is that on this track passing is difficult so I would suggest if the car behind has the smallest of overlap take extra care in the next corner.
    see you tonight
