    We've all been there. I had a GT3 that was hard to pass yesterday in that race. They must have a combo of excellent knowledge of the track, heaps of confidence, and a good setup, that we mere mortals do not possess.

    Now, I've just done a 1hr Monza race. Literally my first race on the track in iRacing. I did a praccy sesh, cobbled together a setup, and turned myself loose on the track. I started 10th and finished 8th. I would have been 6th, but I was on fumes for the last two laps and cruised around giving up those two places. My fastest lap time was a 1:45.779. I gained plenty of IR but lost 4 SR because I had one OT exiting Lesmo 2 and had to cut the turn 1 chicane on lap 2 to avoid a spun Ferrari, grazing his rear bumper in the process.

    The highlight, however, was lap 1. An LMP1 decided to start from the pits and.. yeah.



    There's no sound for this video because I had my audio output set to headphones. HOWEVER, you can watch a version with sound if you click on this link and watch my Twitch stream of the race from the 1h 3m mark and then drop a follow etc etc nudge nudge wink wink

    That would require me to make a Twitch account.

    Indy Pro at the 'Ring; 24 cars. I started from the pits. Finished 8th, simply by not crashing.

    That LMP car joining from the pits is like people here in Portland merging on the freeway. At least get up to the speed traffic is going if you are just going to decide to join in right in the middle of the field!

    Trouble with that is the pit speed limit line is just at the end of where the pit wall ends, so he didn't have much time to accelerate. It was actually caused by the Ferrari ducking out then pulling in last minute and getting itself wedged on either side. In a real-life situation the driver would have been able to spot it.

    My favourite part is how every single car that drove past me rather than hanging back ended up being caught in the incident. That's why they have yellow flag rules! But in saying that I should have stayed behind the LMP myself

    To prevent it, obviously change the way pit lane starts are handled. Either hold the car back for another ten seconds or have a longer gap to the GTE field. The effects of either change would be much more manageable.
