  • AbuRaf70
    Congratulations: Ayrton, Duplode, Mark and Darkie...!!!
  • Duplode
    Well, I feel genuinely pleased about my result... 8) Congratulations to Ayrton! (although that is already becoming commonplace... :smiley: )
  • CTG
    Of course it's a common place for him as he has no motivated strong opponents, while he races like a cow (maybe he should have life too :cheesy:). Rotoi had in ISA/IRC and he could win several times in a row. Ayrton's performance is still far from that.
  • Bonzai Joe
    The argument is not totally wrong, but honestly I don't think it changes the quality of Ayrton's victory that I wasn't motivated to race (as usual). I probably couldn't have beaten him anyway, and motivation is also part of the game.
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Porsche xxx(x) race...? :cheesy:
  • SuperBrian
    Just a test..
  • Zak McKracken
    another testrun...
  • Bonzai Joe
    I was a bit taken aback about this track (which is surprising because I had about two months to make it), so I don't think it's very balanced for the cars. Probably a sure IMSA track. So good thing there are at least two IMSA cars :smiley:
  • Duplode
    While it's nearly sure one of the fast (IMSA?) cars will win this one, making a really strong lap with them will demand some time. So in the meantime I will pretend otherwise and have some fun... :smiley:

  • Mark L. Rivers
    A step on... :wink:
  • CTG
    I feel sick to see those combined unnatural tricky elements, sorry. :-S
  • CTG
    BÖFF anyway, happy drinking! :cheesy:

    And still böff

May 5

  • Duplode
    For once I was not caught off guard, Mr. Rivers... ;-)
  • Mark L. Rivers
    OK... monsieur Duplode... :wink:
  • CTG
    We need fast cars to complete the jump from the banked road to the small corners without losing speed.
  • CTG
    (That's what I couldn't do being drunk :cheesy:)

May 6

  • Duplode
    Just tipping the scales...
  • dstien
    And here I thought Z83 was hard...
  • Duplode
    But I do feel Z83 was harder than Z84... :-) At least with Lancia or P962, this track is more about finding good cuts and racing lines than pulling off RH "magic". @dstein: if you would like some extra inspiration (very useful at this point), I suggest you grab the Competition Archive and look at a few SDR replays, or watch the SDR tribute videos linked from the forum ;-)
  • Duplode
    (PS.: damn, it can't *that* difficult to write "dstien" right... Maybe I should start calling you simply "Daniel" as well, in spite of potentially enhancing the confusion to everyone else? =D)
  • CTG
    What a strange thing, Helmut Ulvan Szargammon is also Daniel. :cheesy: :tongue:
  • Duplode
    So we are actually three of them? :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Nope. One. :tongue:
  • Bonzai Joe
    dstien is a very well designed ghost then :cheesy:

May 8

  • Mark L. Rivers
    And Indy came back to fly... :wink:
  • Duplode
    Well, this happened a bit quickier than I predicted... :wink:
  • Bonzai Joe
    Damn crappy track designer
  • Bonzai Joe
    :O
  • Bonzai Joe
    Come on guys, my replay isn't that good :tongue:
  • CTG
    Of course it isn't. :cheesy:
  • Mark L. Rivers
    I knew that mine was only a short presence on top, but I had thought to stay ay least 24 hours... 2008 is really not a Indy-year... :wink:
  • CTG
    b ö ö ö ö ö ö ö ö f f ! ! !

May 9

  • Mark L. Rivers
    Yes, I'm a nostalgic... :wink:
  • Duplode
    ...so let's go back to the future! =D
  • Mark L. Rivers
    Wow...! It seems you are going to catch some LTB points! So... when there's not a brazilian racer who contend me with Indy, there's another one... =:O)
  • CTG
    Excellent stand-up comedy from Argammon/Alain. :tongue:

May 10

  • CTG
    Being over 1 minute is really bad... :cheesy:
  • CTG
    Hello BJ! :cheesy:

May 11

  • Bonzai Joe
    Hi CTG! How' you doing?
  • CTG
    I knew that you won't beat Mark. Just me, you annoying bastard.
  • CTG
    :cheesy: :cheesy: :cheesy:
  • CTG
    böff

May 13

  • Mark L. Rivers
    Just another step on... :wink:

May 14

  • Duplode
    Wow, here we go again! OK, 80 tenths and 102 hours. The clock is ticking to me... ;-)
  • Duplode
    Just barely... :-)

May 19

  • Krys TOFF
    1st completed lap, quite slow it seems.
  • Krys TOFF
    New one with P962, still way too slow.

May 20

  • CTG
    That's what I call a male work! :cheesy:
  • CTG
    (I mean Ayrton's)
  • CTG
    and BÖFF anyway...
  • CTG
    Just an old one without any tricks. Improvement: maybe later...

May 21

  • CTG
    Singing: Tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a te, tanti auguri a Mark, tanti auguri a te!
  • AbuRaf70
    Happy birthday, Mark...!!!
  • Duplode
    Congratulazioni Mark!!

May 22

  • SuperBrian
    A little late, but still I wish you a happy birthday Mark.. ;-)
  • Krys TOFF
    (late) happy birthday Mark. :-)

May 26

  • No site admin around Europe until the 13th of June. Of course this means virtually nothing in the era of internet, still I thouihgt it would be wise to mention :)
  • CTG
    Manager is away, so it's time now to hack the site... :grin: (kidding)
