@Bradley13 – @abboracing – I completely agree with you. I’ve probably made mistakes here and there, and nudged people, but I really don’t understand how people can not take into account that their car will be filled with fuel and their tyres and brakes cold. The start of the race will not yield any kind of car performance that was granted in qualifying, and it really does ruin the whole point of a race.
It’s rare that people will make mistakes as big as that as the race goes on, and it immediately gives you a huge disadvantage, which is very implausible to recover from. For example, if I hadn’t had those two incidents at the end of the first straight, which cost me about 20-odd seconds, I would have been fighting with Ollie and Brooksy. I know I didn’t have the pace to beat them, but that’s not the point.
We need to really knuckle down on appropriate conduct on the track. Yes, I realise it’s meant to be fun, but the fun isn’t in crashing into each other. I would be much happier to finish last, knowing that it was merely my own pace that led me to that position, rather than finishing mid-pack, after being crashed off somewhere.
