Great work Phil. Hold the cup high and proud!
When are you gonna be back? Because once you are no chance any of the rest of us will win a season

Think I'm gonna stick with ol' faithful... No way I'll keep the Mustang on track, and I'm pretty sure the Abarth's are going to struggle to make a pass despite being faster on the twisty bits.

The Abarth will definitely require a clear run around the back to make sufficient gap to hold out on the straight. It will definitely be behind at T1 I think so
Abarth would out qually the Mustang, but will it still be in front by T1 at the start.. unlikely unless going 3 Abarth's wide
I'm still undecided. I'm not sure I could handle the Mustang for a full race though. I do want to try running the Nissan close to the other two and see how it goes so may try that tonight if people are on the server.

Last night was interesting we did a couple of test races. When Phil was ahead the abarth could catch him all through the lap and he would pull away again on the straight and repeat. I think if the abarths get ahead they'd probably stay ahead as they're that much quicker overall and should have enough of a gap at the straight. Though if they get stuck behind it could be frustrating. Curious how the Nissan would do in a race.

Pretty good night for me. I watched the replay on my race 1 incident with Wally and glad he decided on a race incident as that was also how I saw it after the replay. In the moment I thought it was possibly more my fault so I redressed putting me in last place. Pushing too hard I spun off all on my own losing Wally into the distance. I made up several places due to other peoples mistakes. If I said I didn't laugh seeing Mael facing the wrong way on the grass as I passed him with a couple of laps to go, I'd be lying
Race 2 was great fun pressuring Wally. I had more overall pace but was nowhere a pass was going to be possible unless he made a mistake. He made a couple on the last couple of laps but not enough to get by, but was a lot of fun.
Race 3 was good. I didn't really try and fight the Mustangs off the line and just wanted to hold position or maybe pass Wally but that didn't happen so sat in behind him. Soon Rob blasted by down the straight and I followed him and Wally for a couple of laps until his pressure on Wally caused a mistake and he went off track with Rob and myself going by. I think I then got the position back from Rob going through T1. A few laps later Bird made a mistake going onto the grass which allowed me to get alongside and make a pass on the inside of the last right hander. After than I knew I had to be super consistent to be sure I had enough of a gap going onto the back straight to avoid him passing me, so just put my concentration hat on and manage to open the gap with each lap to finish 2nd.
So what's the consensus: virtual reality vs triples?
For me VR is fun for playing around with. I have one of the Lenovo mixed reality headsets which is actually very good; good tracking and higher res than a rift/vive. The immersion is awesome and it's fun, but the lack of clarity for me means league racing still happens on my triples.

Managed an okay 44 in the Nissan. Tried the mustang for a few laps and could probably get faster in it, but not sure about racing in it after spending most of the my time in the Nissan.
Anyone in the Mustang is going to loose some time at the start, but after that the long back straight should be enough for them to pass. Also seeing as Phil is now posting 43.6s I think we're all in trouble...
and I think it's been at least 3 years???
I was just about to say it's been nowhere near that long, then I looked back and found my Racer Introduction post and it was over 4 years ago! Didn't think it had been that long, so yeah probably about 3 years since you've raced with us.

I hauled in Mael and not sure what happened, but it seemed like he just let me past.
