It's going to be an interesting round. I've been in the cheap(ish) Carrera for the last two rounds and done well, moving me to the top of the points, but cash poor. This round, I'll still be in the Carrera, racing against a GT3 RS and a 911R. I don't expect to do as well, so people will catch up points-wise, but then I'll get cash for the final round at the twisty Magione. A longer season would be quite a see-sawing affair. You'd have to time your sees and your saws :)

Poor planning, Wally.
A fast car would be more beneficial at Monza than at Magione. :-X

I have been wondering if the car wally has last week would be good at Monza with its straight line speed

But I'm already 11 points clear in the points,so I can absorb a worse result in one round.

A bit of dodgey going on on the practice server. ???
Humais, current leader, only slowed down once between the start and Lesbo1. :o
JEAN_RODGER's lap seems to be OK though. :'(

Yes, this definitely looks dodgy!

I'm struggling a bit here in the Carrera. The car feels quite different to how it felt at Zandvoort. The back wants to come around a lot more. I guess it's the bigger radius turns.

I've done a few laps in the Carrera S and the Cayman GT4 last night and figured I'm way behind the faster cars.
It seems this concept can be pretty tricky. I lost a race and a car last Tuesday because of the incident with Mael. I don't see myself at fault at all. So writing off race two, then start from the back in race 3 would be punishment enough I'd think. However, this thing pretty much writes off 3 races the following week on top of that...just for being in the way of someone. This is not about nagging at Mael...I'm over this, no probs at all. I fucked up Able's race myself after that...things can go wrong...that's just the nature of racing.
In this particular case in a proper competitive season it can be pretty demoralising though...5 races messed up because of someone else's mistake.
Just an opinion. I understand this is all about testing this out.

I crashed into nobody and I still can only afford a Carrera S or a Cayman Gt4. And I even tried to keep driving the normal cayman for two rounds to "make" some money. I am not sure I see what is demoralising you.

That's because even in the cheaper cars, you've still managed to sit in 3rd place in the season standings, so you don't "need" a faster car. Similarly, killagorilla is only 3 pts further back in 5th, so has been doing well in the Carrera.

Don't forget, a real season would be longer than just 4 rounds too, so there's more time for things to even out and for strategies to play out.

I am leaning towards having an entry fee each round too, which will have the effect of slowly making people lose their fast cars if they keep winning in them. Lower placed drivers will still make a profit and be able to afford faster cars, but the top place getters will slowly go backwards in the money stakes if they keep winning.

Hm, ok, I thought the wrecked car prevents me from getting a faster one at Monza just because my overall performance last Tuesday was rather poor. If that's not the case I must have simply misjudged the situation.

Ehm...., I know, Wally. I was... sarcastic, I guess.

Killa: basically---the poorer your performance, the better the car you get.

PS: monza is tough if your car is so obviously slower :(
