Race Report - Long Beach Civics vs MX5's
So this Sunday saw the members of the S2 forum start our engines in the Community Race Series this time in the mighty Civics and MX5's Before we start here are some details which might help you understand this series more. The community race series is a series which has been set up where anyone from the forum community can submit a whole race. They determined the build of the car, the track, laps and even if the race is simulation damage or cosmetic. Each car has a specific build which each racer has to stick to pick a car put a tune on it and get racing. So on to my race..... I picked the MX Cup for this race. The Civics are a lot quicker in a straight line compared to the MX5's but I couldn't get the Civics to hook up around Long Beach, I really like the Long Beach track so knew I could do well but that remained to be seen in the race. It was decided on the forum that due to the power of the civics any divers who are deemed the quicker races on the forum would take the slower MX5 and the slower guys would take the Civics just so the race wasn't a white wash of Civics. On the forum I am around a mid card racer at the moment but I decided to jump in the MX5 for more of a challenge and because I found it easier to get this car hooked up even though it was a little twitchy with the wheel I thought I would give it ago. From the race start I had a decent start and managed to get up to and maintain 5th place for about 5 out of the 30 lap race. This was until I hit one of the stupid curbs of death on this track which spun me out. These curbs are also dubbed land mines on the forums because if you hit one its like a bomb has gone off under your car and throws your car around. The most annoying part of this track and the curbs is that they dont seem to be consistant and you can hit the corner the same every time then suddenly it will throw you off it. Anyway back to the race. This spin but me about 10th place once recovered slightly annoyed and determined the chase was on to get my positions back however the following corner I hit another curb which put me dead last. Great! The rest of the race I as trying to play catch up and hot lapping out at the back of the field. I was catching other races and possibly due to me pushing too hard kept spinning out and losing all the time I had gained. In or it was enjoyable as always racing with the guys on the forum but it was disappointing and annoying as I know I can do better than this. I didnt get the slowest lap which is something to take away but I was last which is gutting. I hate been at the back. Anyway footage will be up shortly from this race.
