Who does that? Who goes flag to flag in a GTCup race at Zolder in a Sosltice?

Me.

Nice race Stephen. That's the corner all right lol. You caught it though and I couldn't the times it happened to me Sad. At least the Miata drivers in your group don't think they own the track and try to pass in the stupidist spots cuz they think they're faster lol. couple nice over/under moves too

Really enjoyed that video Stephen. Had it up and running on my 2nd monitor the last half hour of work and had some coworkers stop by and just watch.

So, that project I was working on not getting done is going on your permanent record... Laughing

It was one of those epic races, for sure. I wasn't even mad when I spun and at the end I was all smiles.

I feel the same way. My sister got married last weekend which took me away from the rig for a while (lots of parties and family stuff). I still have some work to catch up on tonight so I may hop on tomorrow night to knock the dust off, then go into full assault race mode on Friday. I'm eyeballing the Skippy at Oran Park this week. I remember that to be a super fun combo last time we raced there.

Got my optimum down to 1'17.6 at Oran, but that's not a great representation of my normal pace which is closer to 1'19.0. Dude in the room I was practicing in for 90 minutes today put in a 1'16.2. Shocked

Pretty wide ranges of times there from what I'd seen. Interesting track.

This section of Suzuka is a good track. Got my optimum time down to 1'33.1 and my best lap is a 1'34.2. Hard track to overtake on and the backmarkers can be quite dangerous.
130R and Spoon corner are ... adventures every time.

Think I am going to actually put in some races tomorrow now that I've had ample practice time.

Sad I've been bumped from 5th in the Solstice GTCup standings. Damn 5k iR Finns and their 150pt winns.

2 chances to score 156 pts to get back there. Neutral

Enter 2:30 race. Roo joins me. Start third in class, Roo 2nd. Start well and follwing roo close until on lap 3 I get a nose under him at the Moto chicane and spin him off in to the wall. I shouldn't have been looking there and was just about to roll out when he, probably thinking he was still clear, came back in front of me too late.

So, in Roo's honour, I went after the 1st place Solstice. Two Miatas between us started fighting so I got between them first, then by them over a few laps. I started reeling in the Solstice and with only 6 mins to go he got impatient with the Miata in front of him and started trying to pass it. I was on his bumper soon thereafter, the Miata let us go, and I worked him around the outside on the run down to Spoon, ending up on the inside there. I held him off for a few more laps and scored the victory.

177 pts!

I'm back in 5th overall, but I feel awful for Roo. I couldn't be Schumacher.

Not bad, not bad at all.

Of course this season will go down in history not for races themselves, but for the controversy at Suzuka. I won the Div 2 Solstice championship the past two seasons, so I guess that makes me Prost. But I wrecked Roo, so maybe I'm Senna? Either way, the media will make a huge fuss about this and people will think we're bitter rivals, but the truth is we're still great friends and we understand that close hard racing can be dangerous. I was going for a gap, and if you're no longer going for that gap, you're no longer a racing driver... j/k, I actually should have lifted and was about to, and I feel awful still.

Now that I've compared myself to Schumacher, Prost and Senna all in one day, I'm happy to put Season 1 to bed and am looking forward to S2. Very Happy

Off to Week 13. MX-5 so it'll be even crazier than the past two where we raced the SRF. If you can Q well and get away clean, it should be a decent chance to earn some iR. Just finish in the top half most of the time and you'll move up.

I'm thankful for an exciting end to the season. I was kind of out to lunch in the points at the mid point of the season, but after a late season surge of speed and also very good luck (unlike the 1st half) I found myself just 5 points out of the top five going into the final day. My luck was due to run out today, and it did. Watching the points situation late was interesting; I knew that all Hagner had to do was turn the key and he would easily surge from 7th to 3rd or 4th, since he only had 7 scores tallied, which is exactly wat happened. Stephen and I were relegated to 6th and 7th at the eleventh hour as predicted; Congrats to Stephen on getting 5th place back this evening. He needed big points, and he got'em.

That was easy

Updates are out. Kia is in the showroom. New race guide looks pretty good.

Lots of 'feels more planted', 'more grip', 'catching slides' comments. People seem to be happy with the changes to the tires.

Laguna and USA apparently look real good like.

Anyone up for some Kia love at Motegi? I've never raced Motegi in iRacing and I've never driven the Kia, so this should be fun. No IR or SR to worry about either. Racing just like the GT days. cheers
