Please be aware that there was a large iRacing update this week (with lots of exciting content and news), with the required download for all updates at ~15GB. Would recommend downloading this ahead of time in case of any delays in joining the race session tomorrow.

Last night was a mess for me.  My few month old Fanatec Clubsport V3 throttle pedal decided to die between the practice round and Sunday night.  Tried every bit of resetting, recalibrating, updating I could think of and still no response.  The vibrate feature does work, so it is getting power.  Anyways, due to that I went back to my old G27 pedal set, which has it's own issues.  Calibrating it gives very unpredictable results - not full throttle when it should, dragging brake most of the time.  Combined with not a lot of practice time made a mid-pack driver like me a danger out there.  I can sometimes get the brake to stop dragging by tapping the brake after using it in a brake zone, sort of the opposite of dealing with pad knock back.  But it gets really busy trying to tap the brake after every time I use it, while actually racing in traffic.

 

I qualified 17th and was shocked that the group made it through the first few laps without major incident (that I saw).  I didn't have any exciting parts until after I made my pitstop around halfway.  Shortly after while going into the hairpin, I made a move on Jared to the inside where I thought he was leaving the door open and then it closed.  He spun, I had some damage and a messed up steering wheel.  The next lap, I was trying to give Zihao plenty of space to pass going into the hairpin, but I hit the grass on the left and lost control and headed right toward the apex of the turn.  I don't think I hit in on the way by, but I was right in his way and he hit me pretty good.  Luckily, he hadn't pitted yet and was able to get going without losing a spot and got his car fixed up.  I had already used my fast repair from bumping the outside wall at T4 a few times.  My car was a total mess at that point, but I could still drive it.  After that, I just tried to stay out of the way and not mess anyone else up.

I forgot to save the replay, but went back and watched the broadcast.  Luckily they weren't on Zihao when I messed up.  Here I was last week saying lappers needed to get out of the way and I almost totally mess up the leader this week.
