    Sorry to Miguel for getting into you. Three into one clearly didn’t work as usual. Humberto timed the start very well, and was able to pull alongside going into T2. From the drivers seat, my view was Humberto came up very slightly in the braking zone so I mirrored him exactly, right as I think Miguel was starting his turn down. The internet made the hit a lot worse than it should’ve been. Very disappointing to see you retire from the incident.

    I ended up stupidly spinning off the T1 kerb in the chaos and hit the wall, falling all the way to last before T2. Spent the rest of the race working my way back through the field. I had contact with one car turning down that netted me even worse aero damage, but was able to salvage a podium. Still a bummer since I think I may have actually had something for Humberto for once.

    I'll go ahead and get my recap out of the way.....frustrating night, and no one to blame but myself.

    Before jumping into the server, my new Rift S needed a firmware update before I could use it, so got that taken care of and jumped in.

    In practice the setup felt really good, and qualifying was an ALL TIME PB for myself. It was so good I stopped after T3 of the second lap. It was good enough for 12th overall, and I prepared myself for the start. Going into T1, I kept it wide, tried not to change my speed for those behind me and when I came out of T3 was just ahead of Peter and thinking I was in good shape to be in the mix at the front of the AM field. As we exited T4, my VR tracking went a little weird and came back, and then again through the next few turns as I turned my head to look at the apex. It was repositioning my viewpoint and then snapping back. Then all of a sudden the Guardian setup screen came up while we were going through the slow right hander, and I was already on the left side so I just drove off into the grass (I hoped that was where I was going), and did the Guardian setup as quickly as possible. Came back to the car, reset my view, and drove back onto the track only to have it happen again. After unsuccessfully getting it to reset, I exited the server, and closed iRacing....then closed Oculus, and unplugged the headset USB connection.

    I reconnected, slipped the visor back down and the Guardian setup screen was there again. I went into Settings and turned off all of the Guardian stuff so it would quit bugging me.

    Opened iRacing, jumped back in the server....4 laps down. Time to just salvage what I can. Was in 34th when I exited the pits, and while I had no business racing cars several laps ahead of me, many of you let me by and I truly appreciate it. Throughout the night I had very consistent lap times, only had one ooops moment when David let me by before T1 and I missed my braking point and looped it, thankfully hitting nothing and no one coming around. But as I kept at it, I grabbed a spot here and there from others exiting the race. I had my fastest lap of the race near the end of the night, a 1:31.5, and the tires were feeling great making even more mad that I threw away another opportunity with a great car. Finishing the race 24th overall, and probably around 13th in class, it was more about finishing and gaining some confidence for the rest of the season. This AM class is TOUGH!!! I haven't looked to see how my lap times fared against the others in AM, but I'm betting it would have been interesting.

    Then...to top it all off. I finish the race, exit the server, and when I slip my headset off I realize I didn't have a single light on in my game room!! The Rift S uses built in cameras for tracking, and without any lights it can't see objects around you for tracking!! I did it to myself again.....ugh.

    A big congratulations to Miguel for the AM class win tonight, great drive!! And to Jay Steffey on 2nd in class, and Lowesky for 3rd and yet another podium.

    Thanks again to everyone who made it tonight....



    And now, a Public Service Announcement.

    At CMS, we have rules regarding incidents and reviews. This is covered under the General Competition Rules which were listed as required reading in the original series announcement post. In the rules, it states:

    IRR (Incident Review Request) AND PENALTIES
    1- There will be no proactive race review by race stewards.
    2- Stewards (Race Review Cmte.) will only review incidents that are submitted by involved drivers or series admins.
    3- Reviews will be conducted by minimum of two stewards and penalty decisions have to be made by majority.
    4- Live race director or steward(s) in a race will have no authority to assign in-race penalties.
    5- Penalties will be served on the next race the driver/team competes.
    6- Penalties assessed in the last race of the series, will be applied to that race and the resultsrecalculated. This type of penalty can be a time deduction or lap deduction.
    7- Penalty criteria is as follows:
    - Unavoidable contact or action: Racing incident, no penalty.
    - Avoidable contact or action: Warning, DT (drive thru), Stop and Go (0 to 60 seconds in length), Loss of a lap, DQ (disqualification from results)
    - Unsportsmanlike conduct or any other misdemeanor: Probation (length determined by Review Cmte.), Ban (length determined by Review Cmte.)
    8- Serving penalties: Penalties should be served right after the start and at the end of the first green flag lap of the race. Any stop and go penalty need to be served at the end of the pit lane (driver chooses a spot after all the pit boxes passed) without blocking the pit exit lane.


    There's also a form to use for submitting incident reviews: https://cmsracing.com/champion/forum...cident-protest

    But I ask of each of you...before you submit an incident for review, watch the replay from both vantage points. Also, contact the other driver and have a discussion. You don't have to do this, but I ask you to consider it. Submit the incident, and a committee that does not include myself or Miguel will review and decide a penalty if needed, and what the penalty will be.

    I know we get the 'red mist' when racing, and it's easy to lose it (I've done my fair share trust me) but for the sake of order, this is our system so please take the time to review the rules, and decide for yourself.

    Thank you.
    Tim Collier

    Spent a few hours today fixing my broken brake pedal so I could make the race.

    What a waste of time that was!

    Ah well, at least my pedals are fixed

    I inadvertently registered the wrong car. And, the VRS setup was too low when I loaded it with fuel, so I could only start with 19gallons. More lulz about my race after I get some emails out ��

    I owe Anthony an apology. I had the red mist trying to run down Miguel and stuffed my car into the inside of Anthony and we made contact. It was my fault I’ll accept ant penalty that might be levied. It was the last lap and I was running out of time. Sorry Anthony!

    P2 in AM, but I didn’t earn it as Tim had issues and Peter and Lowesky has an incident. I just inherited positions. I feel for those that had issues, it was a tight fast track. Good job to Humberto, Miguel, and Christopher. Way to go buddy, repping the team!

    The lulz started early this time with my registration of the Merc instead of the Ferrari. Not sure how I managed that. So, realizing I had that problem, i used some VRS sets which weren't bad. The problem was the race setup did not allow me to run more than 19 gallons of fuel without failing, and I know nothing about setups to properly fix that. Fine, 19 gallons, all good. Moving on.

    Then comes qualifying. I go out and do two laps, the second of which is le garbage, and stop. Go to bathroom down here, come back, and realize I have another lap. At least 0.5 on the table, and could have gotten at least within spitting distance of Chris Rines. WTF1

    Then we start the race. Here, everybody had the same problem trying not to die. This track seems very narrow and since it is so technical, we were like one long train together FOREVER. I think I had a full opportunity to brake at the 50 going into T1 probably 10 laps in or some such. There is basically no grip outside the racing line.

    I settle in behind Jay freels and anthony james. I am a touch faster than them (AM), and raymond rodriguez ahead is in my class (silver). Get to watch a lot of great swapping and eventually get around Raymond. I will have to upload a video of the swapping between jay and anthony. At some point, I make enough not too aggressive runs (I think) at Anthony that he lets me by going into T1. There, of course, I behave like the first time I have gotten to first base and bumble it by sliding into the grass, LOL. But, my reward was more live action footage of jay and anthony punching each other in the face. Unfortunately, at some point, jay had a loss of control, so I had to leave them like Wilson in that movie with Tom Hanks (yes; I am going to continue using this reference).

    At this point, I settle in to my race. Take an early pit and manage to get up to p11. I was unable to real in JT for p10, and realized my MEGA DUFF after anthony let me by was at least part of the cause. All in all, very challenging race.

    TL;DR - Andrew sucks at registering cars, and doesn't know how to pass when given a corner.
