I haven't driven the GTA for a loooong time. Roo, I hope you've got a good setup for me! You're my engineer of choice :D

Awesome, I've only got $66 damage fee.  I thought it'll be worse...so I guess wall hits don't really count?

Just a reminder the dealer is here: https://xgnsimracing.com.au/car-dealer
No, wall hits don't count. It's mainly to discourage you from hitting another car only.
I hope it works in future ...
I didn't hit anyone, they hit me and my bill is $324  :o

In the server logs and clearly visible in the replays, you had 3 contacts in both races 1 and 3, including one that pushed you into the wall at T1. Human memory is a fallible thing :) You can always see your contacts in the race results.

P.S. It's $234, not $324.

The damage fee is round about a max of $300 for a really banged up car (but it could be more).

i didnt realise it was on last night got my dates mixed up lol
Still time to sign up now!

I just re-did the results upload, as I realised some people didn't get bank account transactions recorded.

I've uploaded the results into the Car Dealer. You've returned your car, and are back in the Boxster by default. You've earned some money (unless you won the round), and paid your damage fees.

You can see that the lower placed drivers will creep up the car list, not shoot right to the top.

You can check your bank statement to see what's happened to your money.

If you see any problems, or have any questions, fire away!

...and I came in 2nd in race 3, not 3rd.
You had lots and lots of cut warnings on the night. It seems to me that maybe you didn't have your PLP app visible. You received a 10 second penalty for excessive cutting in races 1 and 3.

Grat's right - the goal is not to perfectly evenly balance the field, but to just give you some strategic choices as to what car you choose, and when, and to spice and mix things up a bit.
We've had one round. It's not designed to give any stupendous outcome after one round. You have to wait and see how a few rounds pan out, as drivers get more spread out in their car choices and bank balances. Don't over-think it too early - give it a chance and see how it pans out.

I think that's how it will work out, the way I've got it set up. You don't win wads of cash for coming last. You'll have to come last a few times before you really get into the expensive cars i.e. it's a slow and steady approach.

So to game the system you'd have to deliberately come last in a few rounds just to get the chance to win a round or two, but where's the fun in that?

Thanks guys, that was great, really tough to pass, had me sweating quite a bit. It's certainly good not having to worry about setting up the car and just drive. With only 4 rounds this is the last one I can attend, unfortunately due to work. I wonder if it were longer how it would go for me not being able to attend many events, I think I'd end up with a slow car while everyone else starts to upgrade throughout the season?
The goal is not to have everyone slowly getting into faster and faster cars, but to have the slower drivers end up in faster cars. Hopefully the field should stay relatively balanced, as even after a break, I would still expect a few Carreras and so on on track.

Results are in the first post. Congratulations to Bueller on the round win.

I'll look at the money for the car dealer tomorrow night.

Server's up.
