a quick test for me offline, i drove the porsche on charging mode to try and simulate the 75% restrictor and i found the times it did was the same as the audi around the nurburgring but 10kmh slower on straights, but the toyota was way quicker to the tune of 1.5 secs but again 10kmh slower down straight to the audi so a restrictor wouldnt work i think the toyota may need ballast since it makes all its time in the turns.

Not sure about the split category thing, i fear you will just end up with just 2 small grids that are running at the same time taking away the competitiveness for instance the escorts you had a fairly big field that was pretty closely matched so no matter where you were in the field you had to fight for the position with a heap of cars and it rewarded consistency. With two small gt fields i can see 2 groups of 10 if that by seasons end spread apart hot lapping lol. Id prefer to see everyone in the wec cars with restrictors etc i think that be really cool

Really happy to see phil win his first one he had a real good grip on these cars no idea how he did it, i couldnt get them to work for me lol phil was definitely deserving of the title
My races were pretty close fought at the back end of the top 10, the pace was really close so made for interesting racing, I did find it difficult to defend with the hp difference but it meant i had to really be clever with my moves in the turns which was a cool challenge throughout the races and the season really. Glad the season is over though lol the car just didnt work and i couldnt really challenge much especially with the restrictor.

Jeremy and i struggled to get our cars working around here and the big restrictor didnt help lol, is anybody else having trouble getting these car to rev match correctly under brakes? it seems to match and then slip away killing engine braking and then putting the car into limbo until i get on the power again making it jump as it engages drive, makes it tricky under brakes and through the mid turn. Are people using auto clutch or something that corrects that issue?
qual: felt i got the most out of the car and was happy with my time but only was good enough for 10th lol was a competitive field!
Race1: Was busy going into t1 in the mid pack but survived it fine until lap 2 where someone had a moment at the hairpin entry which caught me out as he spun back on the circuit so i ended up spinning trying to avoid him amd that put me back to 15th where i stayed as it was very hard to pass especially when you dont have the power to get a run on people lol
race2: Started even further back this time with jeremy i think it was 17 and 18th for us as the pace struggles continued lol, again a nice clean start managing to make a few spots got up to about 13th and had some really good battles with a few people around this spot for the first half of the race, as the tyres wore out i couldnt hold off russ and bueller anymore as they were able to get close to me down the straights making me defend the final turn hampering me for the rest of the lap so eventually they got me with a few nice side by side passeges so was fun and then i was alone till the end lol
Good to see a big competitive field with some new racers around hopefully struggle street can get back to the front next round with some setup work and a smaller restrictor

Was a great cship this one cars were a surprise for me didnt think they be as awesome to drive as they were, was a great one to win and i was pretty happy with how i setup the car and drove most the races. Thanks wally for all the hard yards you put into the league its fantastic!
For what ever reason the car didnt work here so i was off the pace a bit but i wasnt too fussed as all i wanted to do is aim for a podium as thats all i needed to do. Qualy i got 5th which wasnt ideal but i couldnt do much more lol. Race 1 got away nice and clean and was behind phil and kero before they came together and i inherited p2, that was more than enough for me so i just cruised to the finish in p2 which was better than i expected and would ease the pressure for race 2.
Race 2 i was super cautious lap 1 and had a few incidents in front of me that raised the heart rate but i survived and was 3rd behind bachulum and joe watching them battle out, after a few laps joe got past and i followed suit. Joe had good pace and i couldnt do much about it without risking too much so there wasnt much of a gain when p2 again would be more than enough for me so i sat back but joe was driving great anyway and pulled away so congrats to him on his first win good to see

Was very happy to have a sweep for the night qual was intense being very close so was happy to top it off with a nice lap in the end.
Race 1 i didnt get a great launch so phil jumped me but then i saw he got a drs penalty so my plan was to just lap with him and not risk anything, was a great pressure race with some decent times being posted but after the pits i inherited the lead after phil got caught up with the lapped traffic. Cruised home and went for the fastest lap a few times to secure maximum points
Race 2 i felt like dan ric a bit with everyone in front of me making mistakes so i just gravitated to the lead lol and once again went for the fastest lap and cruised for the win

I think you will find kcender ran into me race 1 wally lol
was happy with qual, got a decent launch was going to settle behind grat but then kcender had a moment into t4 and clipped my car, fell mid pack and had a great time fighting back to p2 with a awesome battle with phil and joe for the podium.
race2: messy start thought there was another crash going into t2 up my inside so i went straight across to dirt in fear lol came back on slow and got taken out car was heavily damaged was like driving a truck but found myself p5 but then trying to push a little to catch simone the thing just went straight at the last turn where kcender was waiting and that was it for me, went back to pit to fix car came 18th... no luck at all that one...
