    Default I am a total idiot

    So, after a while off HD due to work, I pick up it again and decide to make a real run at transedance (only zico and four medal on elite campaign left). I try Chenghou at phantom a few times, with the usual "Christ this is manic".
    Anyway, 10 attempts in, i come through the last chicane in first place. I catch it out of the corner of my eye, but block it out completely. "This is a time to focus" I say to myself.
    I hold it together through the hairpin, but get rocketed going up the slope.
    I manage to regain first with some fancy side shifting (Thanks Saturn and Yeldar for the vids) through the right left and cross the line in First.

    Queue me jumping up shouting
    "F**king get in, you beauty etc etc". and throw the controller down on the floor, really really pleased with myself.

    Only to hear the tele say to me
    "final lap"

    I still had a lap left.

    "Damn"

    Hehe, we've all been there. I've done that several times in online races. Sometimes 4 laps online is already too much.

    Lawlz - I've done that COUNTLESS times in online races. I drop the controller to run and have a piss, only to come back to disappointment.

    And this wasn't during extended races - these were "normal" 3, 4 or 5 lap races...

    @gordo1974: There is a slight enhanced version of the experience you have
    made. Happens online at times. xD

    I'm more likely to be guilty of the opposite (holding on to a boost or weapon across the finish line thinking I have another lap left).

    Damn, ive done this myself a few times online, particularly during Avalon. Holding onto first place with a hair strand length, gunning it through the finish grid then the drop the controller out of pure exhaustion, only the hear the pommy chick say final lap.

    .......then quickly thumbling around to get the controller back in my hands, but it doesnt matter by the time i do. Followed by a bunch of hardcore swearing. All that effort wasted!
