Well, Clubman5's results are the following (Just in case Krys continues to be unable to access fsa.)

1 Duplode                  1:14.40
2 Mark L. Rivers          1:14.85
3 Chulk                      1:17.50
4 Krys TOFF               1:20.75*
5 AbuRaf70                1:24.95
6 Paleke                    1:33.85

*: 1" of penalty time.

Good to see I wasn't so far from the leaders racing only a week! Prepare for next track!
Yes, it is me. No, I'm not back at racing (for now...)

So I broke Mark's unbeaten run of three (actually should be five...) races! Next step: winning a WSC track I haven't designed  ;D

Congrats to Duplode!!! Let's see if I can win next race. It seems track will be really hard according to what Paleke said in FSA...
Yes, it is me. No, I'm not back at racing (for now...)

Damn, I missed the deadline. And I got a penalty ? Re-Damn ! I'm way too busy these days with all children at home and "Feel The Thrill" website to prepare to be able to race. :-\

Remember you can challenge this if you thik you don't deserve it. But most likely, you missed the track some milisecons and that's why you got the penalty.

Have you tested the new track? I think winning time can be around 1:20 or so. Try it and then we can talk about it.

The zipfile with Clubman5?s final result contains my previous replay (1:15,20) and not my last one (1:14,85). My best time is attached here.
Anyway, it seems I lose the race in last corkscrew (I didn?t reach the Powergear, about 0,50 second lost, shame on me?) and above all in last 8 seconds. I made a mistake approaching the last tunnel cutting too much the slow curve and putting my right wheels on the grass just before the ingress. So I had to control the slide of my car losing speed. Instead Duplode made a clean path on the asphalt keeping a higher speed than me. Result: 0,20 second gained for him from the beginning of the tunnel and its end, and a gap obviously increased at the finish (0,45) due to the higher speed?
Well done, Duplode! :) I think last race will be really dazzling, and sure next season too, above all if the greatest IRC Indy specialist (read ?Ayrton?) will come back with us?! ;)

Ups, my bad, I'll correct it as soon as I can. Anyway, it doesn't matter anymore, because the god damned forum server have failed again and it seems that this time all the forum messages were erased. I'll mail Iespana to complain about this, but I don't think this will work. I'm very pissed off, I don't know what to do. I mean, I need the forum because the SSEHPTC works with its database, but I don't want to keep it (at least in the current hosting) if it's going to keep failing like that, and this may involve fixing the SSEHPTC's programming so it can be run in a different hosting, and I don't know (and don't have time to find out) how hard to do this is. Perhaps the most reasonable solution in short term may be keeping "two" forums: one just for the SSEHPTC database, and the other to use properly as a forum. In this case there is an obvious option that is kind of embarrasing for me, but due to the situation, it's probably the best, so: do you think Zak will mind if I ask him to borrow me a part of his forum?


PS: changing the subjet, a question to all the pipsqueaks that have raced in Mexicana: how do you do to pass the second corkscrew left/right (or right/left, I don't remember)? In case you don't know wich one I am refering to, I,m talking about the "broken" one.
I calculated the odds of this succeeding versus against the odds I was doing something incredibly stupid...and I went ahead anyway.

no :) just tell me all the name of the main categories you'd like to have, and I'll create them with you as a moderator.

Well, I tried two or three times to loop it properly (rofl!), then gave up and just strolled ahead, taking a small jump in the end towards the banking if I remember correctly...

Ok, thanks. Later I'll send you a pm.

I went straight, always keeping one wheel on the road. Car didn't do any jumps but just continued as if it was a straight piece of road.

Ok, thanks all for your answers.

After a little investigation after the reply from Iespana (hosting), I realized that I was wrong, although the server is not working properly (error messages pretty often), it didn't erase the forum's messages, they weren't erased at all (not this time, at least). The problem seems to be in the domain I was using (fsa.ar.nu), I don't see how, but for some reason when you access the forum using this address it doesn't show you the content of the message; but if you use the "real" address (wstuntsc.iespana.es/foro) it does.

So:
Zak: thanks for the help offer, but it seems I won't be needing it this time, although I'll keep it in mind for the future, just in case...

Everyone: if you want to access WSC's forum, from now on go to http://wstuntsc.iespana.es/foro
