THANK YOU so much for another series Phill
Considering I missed about 4 races earlier on, consistency is key and the GT40 was a great drive.
Despite a lonely final race, I knew I had to be either Pole or 2nd spot with a good start and thankfully it turned out well. The first few laps, I must of been a little nervous and didn't get my groove until about lap 6 on wards. Had a ferrari behind me that I was eyeing off and making sure I kept some distance. Most of the race, I just had to keep focus and ride out till the end.
See you all soon

is it a possibility that too much weight was applied? For the Praga, it's already a very sensitive car..
Ballast system works. I've copped some heavy ballast penalties and while it sucks, it can bring the racing a bit closer. The trouble is knowing how much weight is fair and the time it takes to configure it correctly.
I don't think any form of compulsory pit-stop or race-start delay is a better option.

I voted for MX5.
Less car setup means the cars will be similar. Even run a fixed setup if possible, that way it's more about driver skill rather than the car.
Also, don't make the races too short. Sprints are ok, but sometimes there is not enough time for recovery if you're caught up in a collision.
Cheers everyone for the race, Tight track and almost blind into some corners.
I'm chuffed I bagged a 1.49.8 - Don't drive it like you own it, drive it like you stole it! lol
3 restarts in the second race, bit annoying knowing how tight the track is. Granted I got off the line quickly to get mid field from near last and scraped through most of the carnage.
till next week

Nice screenshot Wally - It was quite unpleasant seated in the GT40 going through that experience in VR!
Unfortunately after a few bumps, the pitting system is what really let me down. I spent almost 3 minutes trying to work out what was going on in the pits before I managed to refuel.

Big thank you for organizing the racing and servers Had a blast and honestly didn't think I'd be up the top. Had a bad night tonight which took a toll, but congrats to Bacchulum for the win and Mael for finishing 3rd!
Looking forward to next season

I would love to see a season for hill climb tracks. Whether they're time-trials or actual racing, it would definitely be action packed. The fact that most, if not all of us won't remember every corner gives us all a good challenge of pushing the car and being conservative throughout the track.
I know some tracks like Akagi Mountain Pass, Ebnit, Lake louise (very long circuit), Transfagarasan Downhill and Trento-Bondone are good Point to Point tracks.
Format A - We can do time-trials, best of 3 runs is your time for the round.
Format B - Setup a Qualifying stage and then a race.
I know there will be crashes, I know there will be misjudged corners and most likely will send your car back to pits to try again but it will be hell fun for a grid of 15 cars going through Transfagarasan :D:D:D

Had a good time, Race 1 was ok from what I can remember of it. Finished 5th.
Second race was really fun. AJ, Phill, Mael and myself keeping it tight until Mael clipped Phill and gave me a free pass Finished 3rd.
Last fun race with no ballast was good. Obviously the car was a bit quicker and felt more agile given all I did was up the ratio and keep the same setup. Had a really good start off the grid and held out till the end. Finished 1st.

What can I say - what an ending!
Apologies to Joe for the early contact, unfortunately I got caught up and had to get on the grass. Luckily I was able to push on. For the most part of the race, I was chasing Bac and Seanus. The 150kg Ballast held me back accelerating out of corners and was a little too heavy to even draft behind the car ahead when I managed to catch up, so I had to rely on my faster sectors to keep pace. lap time was was tight!
Bad luck to Seanus who lost control on lap 16 (I think) heading down the straightway. Bac and myself took the advantage and it was extremely tight for the next 2 laps till the end.
Well done and looking forward to next race

Thanks for clearing that up Phill, I didn't know it was a league.
If the faster drivers need to do a compulsory pit stop, wouldn't the next slowest driver eventually be winning as much?
As discussed on TS Thursday night, a Ballast system would probably be better (despite the initial setup before the race).
Otherwise, to find a 2nd car that is harder to control or almost 1 second off average pace would be the go. Make a cut-off average time around the given circuit and anyone faster than that time must use the 2nd car. How to monitor it? You could rely on honesty and previous race placings, maybe even the top 8 of last race? Up to you guys but there's my suggestions.
