You just said that to make me jealous, right?

No loopcut, automatic gears, unlucky last 10 seconds: 1:13.25, my final time. Tomorrow/on Saturday I'm going to reinstall my XP ---> no more shots from me.

Ouch, I was busted!  :-X I only got to do my shots yesterday very late in the night - while waiting for the GP to start, and by then I (foolishly? arrogantly?) underestimated the importance of the loopcut, thus preferring to spend my time and energy improving on the other sections of the track. Several minutes later, when I realized a decent cut would save me at least 2 seconds, it was way too late for me to find a reliable way to pull it off... Anyway, congratulations to Mark (OMG, the gap is halved!! :o) and Chulk - analysis of this one will be very interesting  ;)

Website updated, congrats Mark. Only 4 points between Duplode (still leader) and Mark. The finish of this championship will be hard.
As for the loopcut, well, I did it but it was really not enough, you guys were damn fast ! :o

Thanks Duplode for your congratulations!  :)  And congratulations also to Chulk for his very strong time!   :)
I had hoped to rescue more than 2 points in this race, but it was a remote hope...  Anyway the things have not changed a lot... I still have to arrive ahead Duplode in next 3 races, even if I'm not obliged to win all races...    ;)
And now I'm waiting that Krys introduce a bonus point having kept alive the fight and the interest for the season one more time...  :D

Just an anticipation about my replay: I never made a lap trying to cut the loop...  ;)

Thanks for the congrats. I'm a bit sad to see I could have won if it hadn't been for 2 stupid mistakes... I had a 1:08.10  last night but I missed to hit F5 so it wasn't saved, and 2 or 3 laps later, I had a potential 1:07.XX but hit the last tunnel when trying to skid and avoid penalty time (I only hit it the first few tries besides that one...) Anyway, nice result for me, especially considering how the season went for me, and now, I hope to win with Corvette, or at least to have a nice time again.

Well, I'm not the FIA. :P I won't give penalities to others (to give you a bonus) to try to keep the championship interesting like FIA did more than often in this season (like the unjustified penalty to Bourdais in Japan to give 1 more point to Massa, or the penalty to Hamilton at Spa).

One info now that this race is finished : FTT0108 was inspired by the real track Kyalami (South Africa).

Website updated with the replays in download section.
It seems I'm the only one who cut the loop to the left while Chulk was the only one cutting the loop on the inside.
I'm curious to see the analysis, Mark seems slow from the loop to the jump before the cut along the tunnel.

Let me guess: Chulk must have saved 2 - 2.5 seconds with the loopcut, but Mark surpassed that with a near-perfect line from the initial hill to the short pipe section, maybe helped by exceptionally high speed through the elevated corner. As I did none of these things, I lost... :D
