    That was some of the best sim racing I've done, ever.

    Kris, Greg, Paul, and Scott, that was an absolute incredible fight throughout the race. The pace and craft was top notch. It was getting a bit too intense for me, so I decided to stick at the back of the pack until the final laps. Its a shame there was contact on the straight after T2, it would have been a coin toss finish. I got a good run on both Greg and Kris, and took the lead with a lap to go. Holy cow Kris, that was a hell of a run exiting the Carousel and Kink, and then the drag to the line. I still cant believe how close that entire race was.

    Hell of a race!

    COT DAMN SON! That was some insanely close racin'.

    So much racin' I can't wipe the smile off my face!

    All that said, I did cause a major first degree homicide for Tyler by bumping into Peter H. into the first big left turn. Totally way too aggressive. That was absolutely my fault. After that, battled with Jose and a new comer. Banged some doors. Jay Steffey ended up killing himself sort of, and was close to battling back, but let Peter by. Peter got close, but I was able to hold him off for whatever top 10. Man, these cars are fun!

    Again, sorry to Peter and Tyler for my mental era there. Sorry doesn't fix it, but I just had some mist from all the close racing!

    I’ll echo what’s been said, tight racing with lots of passing. Was a blast. I was in the pack from 6-9 until a small contact looped me. Regulated to 11th. Great racing Miguel, Drew, And Liam. That was super fun.

    First post updated with Highlight Video!

    For those interested, or confused why it didn't switch to X, or follow the battle with Y and Z, the program uses several factors for following on track battles, but it's not perfect by any means. But it's a lot easier than piecing together one manually!!

    I didn't have enough time to get a qualy lap in, so I started from the back. Slowly worked my way up, and luckily the front pack was having some good racing, so I was able to pick up the draft. With two laps to go it all kicked off and everyone was fighting hard for position. Unfortunately I got PIT maneuvered right into Sam and the wall, taking us both out of the race. That setup an excellent finish with the remaining three cars though, and it looked like a fun fight. Congrats on the win JT!

    An absolute blast of a race! Wow! I had an enormously shitty day at work yesterday and really didn't feel like jumping on because I didn't think I was going to be able to focus. I usually try not to drink before I sim race but I drank a glass of wine and went for it. Luckily, once I was on the track all I thought about was the battle, and oh what a battle it was!

    From start to finish it was super intense. I was sitting back with JT for the most part during the first half of the race. Things started getting wild and I was trying to take advantage where I could. Right before the big wreck in the front everyone in front of me went three wide. I decided to cut across the track and get behind Paul and then all hell broke loose but I just happened to be in the right spot to avoid it. From then on it was a battle between JT, Greg, and I. We were swapping positions all over the place. JT and I ran side by side for a long time. I was able to get in front on the last lap but knew it was going to be close. I took a bit of a defensive line through the last corner and then it was just a drag race. Absolutely one of the best races I've ever had! Like JT said, great pace and racecraft all around. Can't wait for the next one!

    Yes that was a nice one

    I did not set a qualy time on purpose as I knew things had a chance of getting a bit wild mid pack. Slowly made my way thru aided by a bit of carnage up front. Found myself racing Travis but decided to bump draft a bit so we could catch up. I was able to get up to 6 place after starting dead last. Not a bad day at all.

    Great race!!

    Qualified well, better than I had expected starting in 5th. Took it easy the first few laps just trying to stay in the draft and watch the mirrors. Caught the grass ever so slightly coming through the kink, inside wall, missing parts, game over.


    But I want to say to everyone that has made a race this season, I personally want to thank you for keeping the interest and field sizes beyond my expectations week in and week out. This started out as a support series to the GT3's, but I think it has some incredible racing because of the speed limitations in these cars. We definitely have those guys who know how to push them through the turns faster than others, but I still believe that throughout the 40-minute race you're going to have somebody to race against all night long. I feel that these races have been just as fun as the GT3 series each and every week so far!

    So thank you everyone, and please, pass the word along about this series, and remember that we still have 6 more races to go this season!!!

    Next race is at Monza Junior!!

    Qualified way above where I expected (6th) and 4 tenths better than my PB. I seem to have turned a corner on my qualifying.

    Focused on taking it easy to start as I figured I'd be getting overwhelmed by fast drivers, but the pack racing kept it pretty tight. I overcooked it on Canada corner on lap 1 and was done 4 or 5 spots as a result - but I didn't make that mistake the rest of the night. Had a great time battling with Tim, Jay, Miguel Jr and Drew for most of the race when four of us (minus Tim) were side by side down the front straight. I'd tried to follow Drew past Jay, who was on the outside for T1, but I wasn't quite as far up on him as I thought. Unfortunately, Jay closed the door on my foot and he caught the worst of it.

    I lobbied another few passes, but couldn't make any stick for long, winding up at the back of that pack (which had since been caught by Travis and Lowesky). Still, I had a lot of fun!
