    They will be on the gran-turismo website. Can’t remember if they send them directly in messages also.

    Did a practice race and today is a nope. Decided to try the daily weekly races instead and got my SR dropped to A, so that was nice. It’s frustrating having others throw caution to the wind and you get SR downs for it. Ahh well, maybe next week.

    I tried the Mitsu on my backup and it is 5 mph slower on the straights. I’m guessing the Corvette on my main would be 3 mph slower? FYI: The Veyrons pulled away from the Corvette, even in their draft, lol. Qualified 10th and Managed a 6th staying out of trouble and letting Veyrons by to draft...

    I think they are overlooking it. Seems like it is a tick behind the Veyron on the straights, but better otherwise.

    Brutal, PD’s penalty system is B ROO TUL. 3 laps practice, never tried mediums, but logged into the 2nd race. Saw some drivers I know, door number 4. Qualified 11th, started on mediums, hoping for a 1m, 6s, 6s, 5s strategy. Car was a bit of a Handful on mediums, glad to get those off. Battled...

    Haha, good race and video! Every race i’ve been in with that Mopar guy he is getting called out for his “driving.” Then he always blames everyone else, never realizing he’s the only constant. Too funny.

    Ok, that was an interesting race. Saw GTWolverine @equusferrum(?) Pigems and a couple members in this race. I made the mistake of accepting the featured driver status, based on last seasons finish. Did not realize that would give me an S/S rating, uh oh. i got in 28 miles of practice laps...

    I hope they fix the broken penalty system in time for the new series. In dailies today I got a 2 second penalty for passing on the inside when the other car went wide and then turned in as if I wasn’t there passing him. He already had a track limit penalty when it happened. So he gained the...

    Lots of great race reports! I had a great rookie season in FIA and thanks for this forums help in strategy and race tips, there is no doubt that it helped me have much better first season results! I haven’t looked at the hard numbers, but my A bar is trending right and is nearly 3/4 across...

    That was a nice clean race from what I saw @csmirnoff excellent work! ...the replay behind you was BRUTAL. I started on hards from 14th with nothing to lose, about a second off your pace...I think 15 minutes practice and a few laps Wednesday night wasn’t enough to be fast. About 5 cars were...

    Just some random FIA racing thoughts; “Moving under braking,” Something I rarely do, but I did have someone teach me it was poor etiquette by not braking at the next opportunity and plowing 3 cars off the track, then letting me know he did it because I wasn't forming good driving habits. Now...

    Rest assured it will be ugly the first lap. The X2019 is so fast and corners so well, combined with people who can use it to it’s full potential and others who will be unsure and driving it completely differently and far too easily at times. I expect carnage. But seasons Gonna be over, so, lol.

    I skipped the nations race this time, got home too late from work and tried one lobby, it was brutal, so decided not to risk it with 20 minutes practice. Manu I got a solid 45 minutes of practice in and set a bunch of 2.05 laps, so Corvette and I felt ready to go. In the race I was Q6 setting...

    I think a 1 stop, using mediums until the pace drops almost a second, than hards for the duration. A no stop on hards is viable also since the pit stop is long and passing is hard, many will one stop.

    The RCZ is their chosen car because they are excellent drivers and it’s twitchy slidey feel makes THEM faster. Basically it rotates better. For us average racers it’s a little bit of a handful to get consistent laps. If you can’t practice 400 to 500 miles in it, To gain consistency, try...

    I am loving the Corvette now, both GR3 and GR4, it’s usually not Alpha, but now it’s always competitive. I felt really competitive at Suzuka. Just needed a clean race. I am scoring well also. 2 races to go. Good luck!

    Well that was an entertaining evening of racing. My 1 and done rule got broken pretty hard tonight, for good reason. First manu I as in with @csmirnoff who had qualified ahead of me. I qualified 5th, which surprised me Since I literally only got 12 minutes of practice in the warm up for this...

    Just a little tip for the Hurucan and cars that feel edgy entering corners, or where the rear wants to step out...a tiny bit of throttle after setting the car into the turn will help calm it down, since it transfers weight back off the front end. Not a lot, just a small amount similar to trail...

    Well, my Manu report is not as thrilling as it could have been. I qualified 5th with door 7 on the car. Btw, who was this guy? I can not believe the chaos one dirty driver can cause. @Jwptexas asked him not to ruin everyones race before the start, I thought he was messing with the guy. NOPE. He...
