    The tires go away fast. There will be more strategy this season than last for sure. The cars being more even will hurt parity but that just means it's time for the slower guys (me) to git gud.

    Give things a chance before thinking so negitive about it. I recall you being very vocal about how the BOP was off by a mile last season. Now things are tightened up. Yes there is just one strategy this week but things may change. Once we get into competition racers always find a way to surprise ya! It's the same deal every time we go to the mountain. Get clean air, stay out of trouble and don't beat yourself.

    May someone please confirm the tire/fuel consumption settings please? The OP says it's 'fast' but I don't know if that's changed. Also assuming that the tire rules and race duration are going to remain the same from last season? Thanks and happy Fourth to my fellow Americans.

    No changes. Changes were suggested and i agreed with most but i am wary of making big changes without extensive testing to see what the affect will be. I think this format should work well. It looks like we will have at least one more season if not two after this before a legitimate new game is ready so we can assess how changes will affect things and implement them next season.

    The yes strategy is going to be just as important as it was last season. I don't understand why people would think otherwise, but oh well. Bathurst is going to be a tough track for these cars but I am looking forward to it.

    I have never been good at bathurst. It's just one of those tracks that doesn't suit my style at all. All i can really hope for here going in is to not finish last. But I've surprised myself before and once the green flag drops it really is anyones race. So much can happen in 50 minutes.

    thank you Illtrick , but I dont feel for staying up untill late at night just so I can listen to screaming tires that wears down so quickly and I doubt that the tire/fuel wear will be set down to normal :) I`ll just come and practise occasionally

    Maybe postpone a week due to all of the absences? I know two doesn't seem like all that much but with the field size we have (to my understanding) it will significantly impact the quality of the racing without Trick and Huyler present. Thoughts?

    I am okay with it if everyone else also is. Its not as if we are up against a hard deadline to get things moving. It would be best to have a full grid.

    Many thanks for the mention @Whitey093 about the ARS Le Mans race. That is always a tough event for people who are not used to long-distance racing and multiclass overtaking. With the race tonight being postponed until next week, if anyone has two and a half hours of time they'd like to waste, I'll link my onboard video from the R18 for your viewing pleasure. See you soon!
