Well if only I could run this race again. I got my first ever DNF (did not finish), and my second – both in the same race. Both drivers ran out of fuel when (according to the info panel) they should have been able to make it back.
This isn’t the first time I have seen this, it happened to Team Spamsac last season, and now I guess it was my turn. I knew I was cutting it fine, but I didn’t think it would be that close.
Everything was going so well, too. I was doing 1 less stop than those I was racing with for 9th and 10th places, and I was pretty close behind them. Again, I think my mistake cost my team points. It’s getting a bit frustrating that it’s so consistently my mistakes that are keeping me out of the points.
On a positive note, I will qualify for KERS after the next race. But unfortunately, because of my DNFs this week, I won’t be able to afford it. Sigh.
I began my gaming journey via the family Commodore Vic-20, then later with my own C-64 and Amiga A600. These systems kept my attention until I moved up to PCs around the Windows MS-DOS Pre-Windows 95 era, which means I never really got into the console gaming market in a big way.
My parents spent a significant amount of time sharing my early gaming experiences, and this really helped foster my interests. I discovered racing games and space games for the first time, and those are still my main genres of interest to this day.
These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and enjoy the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
