Tough luck award goes to Darren. Disco right off rFactor and Teamspeak with 10 laps to go.
Thanks Guys, With 10 laps to go I lost connection and dropped out of teamspeak
At first i thought It was the server as my internet was still working perfectly but i couldn't connect to the SimHQ teamspeak server (others working fine), and the website and forum just timed out. In fact i didn't get access to anything SimHQ until about an hour after the race! Genuine disco's (ie. not ctd's or other issues) are almost unheard of for me - in fact the only time it happened before was also with the VHR2011 mod in very similar circumstances. Very bizzare indeed. Like Panther it seems the 2011 version of this mod brings me a fair share of issues for negligible benefit.
I hadn't done a whole lot of practice but Birdski's setup was sweet and i was up to speed fairly quickly. I was just about managing to hang onto Birdski and Rhino's tail going into the final stint and it was shaping up to be a nice close finish. Unfortunately i never got to see things play out but that's the way it goes sometimes.
Up until that point I was having a ball. These trucks are waaaay more fun than the sprint cars!
Congrats to Rhino and Birdski for the 1-2,
and thanks to everyone for an enjoyable evening. Nice to see Einstein jumping in there for a short while too. Hope to see you again soon.
