Hehe thanks Gigs
Might check out the video of the whole Turn I attached to the previous post, there's some more sliding around in there

I know the whole turns can be boring to watch, I thought about putting together just all the sideways scenes and so on

There was no way getting the tires up to temp during the morning.
But that changed in the Afternoon with a dry track

Fred in his Silver Coupe had a moment braking hard into the left hander infront of the Mercedes Grandstands. He's fighting ABS Issues for quite some time now. We suspected the Porsche Front Calipers not working properly with the ABS but it might just be a malfunctioning ABS Unit.

Less drift, more speed!
Added the complete Turn 4 Video to Post #529

Added Turn 5. Wonder what you guys say about the behaviour of that BMW Driver...
I did hesistate to overtake at first because it actually was the lap behind the safety car and from the drivers Briefing we had the Info not to overtake.
Haven't had time to inspect the car for underbody damage.

Anyway the good news is:
We, at the School of Racing, were able to raise over 16000 with that event for charity!
The money will be donated to a School for handicaped Kids and to a Project which helps Teenagers who live on the streets and don't have a home!

How much damage to the car, that seemed like a really good hit.

Dang i hadn't even seen that yet! Was it just the curbing that you hit/drive over? That BWM just about pushed you off track...

I did not hit him luckily, was able to barely avoid contact. The curbing there has a higher inner curb so F1 / DTM cars can't cut corners. That's where the car bottomed out on.

I wasn't able to put the car on jackstands and inspect since I've been sick for the past 5 days.

I suspect it's some plastic that needs to be replaced and at least one brake cooling hose.

Towards the end of the video, the M3 also turned into the R32 Golf with no contact luckily.
After I got out of the car I told race control and that this guy is absolutly wrong in the Race Group.

The line he took after the Hairpin and his slow driving told me he's okay with being overtaken. And since Fred passed him before me I at least was certain he know checks his mirrors.
Then again he didn't indicate so I was unsure whats up with that guy and should just have waited.

Well lesson learned.
