Awesome photos and commentary! That was a great 2nd race especially, I was honored to have fended you off until the end. Great race craft and passing too!Division 3 Round 1 Race 1
Honda Integra Type R (DC5) Touring Car '04
at Ascari full track
On Track: @turnupdaheat , @Wolfsatz , @LeoStrop , @Xradkins ,@racefan78 , @JLBowler, @intoflatlines & @Dragonwhisky
Turnupdahead gets pole and steals it from me. I had pole for about 10 seconds.
Nice and tidy at the chicane.
Ready to receive an early gift from Turnupdaheat, he goes wide and into the grass and make the pass without incident.
1st lap and Racefan is also able to pass heat. This one is not so much the snail train.
Battle for 4th is tight.
Going through the 2nd Chicane, Racefan quickly closes the gap.
3 wide at The Hill. Xman is able to make a clean pass for 4th.
Racefan charges hard and gets very close.
Meanwhile, X gets an excellent run on Heat and makes a clean pass as Flatlines studies his chances.
At the 2nd Chicane and everyone in bounds!
Last Lap! Burning front tires but keeping in bounds; Racefan still looking for a tiny mistake to complete the pass.
But I am able to cruise to my 1st victory in D3 on GT6. Excellent racecraft to @racefan78 he pushed hard but never over agressive to cause an incident.
Flatlines is able to make a pass on Heat on the last lap.
Division 3 Round 1 Reverse Grid
@LeoStrop starts in the front and is followed by DW.
Snail Rainbow at lap 2. Battle for 3rd.
Side by Side at the top of the Hill X defends the inside from Racefan's charge.
Flatlines defends the inside as X gets robbed from the draft. Good defending move from @intoflatlines to prevent the pass in 3rd lap.
X setting up for the pass 2 corners before @ The Hill...
...gets excellent momentum and completes the pass on the inside touch free even when Flatlines is running a very good defensive line. I tug right behind X to draft him, but ran out of track to complete the pass before the chicane.
Last lap and I fight to steal 4th from Flatlines...
... there is a small rub and I lift off to prevent a major incident... flatlines is able to maintain position.
...and racefan is closing the gap quickly.
While @Dragonwhisky is cruising in 2nd place seconds ahead of any threat.
Setting up for the pass at the Hill, and using the same technique as X...
I come side to side next to flatlines...
... but I have the advantage of having the inside line.
and able to complete the pass to the finish line withing 100ths of a second.
@LeoStrop seals victory
Everyone in D3 displayed great racecraft on this combo! 👍
