    I used a few cars here while on the hunt for more credits. Fun little track. I think I finally have a great tune for the Triumph Spitfire right around 500PP, it took awhile to get it to the point where it drives properly.

    I used the perennial cheater car, the 350hp 1,200hp Shelby Series One.

    Chase car was the Cizetta V16 making it a bit easier (this car isnt fast).

    This track in reverse is amazingly good. You still get the big jump going up hill and you need to control your power oversteer on the 1st 2nd gear corners. Also you're exploring how far you can get your car into the dirt edge to get a faster line.

    A very fitting end to GT6 and the popular intermediate class.

    Enjoyable race.

    Too easy, used a neutered, C7 Stingray. Got pushed and turned around in the tunnel but still re covered for an easy win over the Pagani. Got the credits and another Vette for my collection and I'm done.

    Something really strange happened this evening... I was coming around the final corner on lap 2, and right in front of me on the finish line, a stack of barricades and two cones on top came rising out of the asphalt- I've never seen anything like it.

    There's documentation of that barrier and cones rising from underground. Always funny. It has something to do with cutting through the dirt on the prior lap, I think.

    Yes, there were a couple of discussions about it; here's one:



    And from another source:



    Why is it that I can't get out of my head the picture of Kaz laughing maniacally in the shadows.

    Well, I tried my first race today since the issue with my right hand. I love this track in reverse. The elevation changes and the way the corners are setup to me is one of the best Gran Turismo tracks. I used my Shelby Series 1 with @shaunm80 tune. Only change the final and brake balance. What a fun track to come back to after my unintended hiatus. I found a different way to hold my controller So that my thumb is not wrapped around the bottom right horn of the DS3. I have been testing it a little at a time. This Series 1 has just over 600 miles on it which for me is a lot of miles. The lead car was a Zonda. I took the lead in the uphill left hand turn on the outside on lap 3. Never saw him again. I finished almost 10 seconds ahead. Sorry I don't have a picture due to the fact I wasn't sure how my hand would hold up so my phone was not ready to take a picture. I did try but the leaderboard closed before I could get a picture. I'm going easy does it with these races. I started the beginner race with my Copen Active top, but stopped after 2 laps. I am very happy that I can race again and I also got to play drums today as well. So My Father YHWH gave me a double blessing today. I'll run it again and post a picture. Hallelu Yah!

    Well I sure thought that there would more posts than what I see here. Oh well. Good news my hand is almost back to full Function without pain. I am going to take things easier like limit myself to a couple of races per night. i never like these so called Super Laps even though i have gold a bunch with help from people like @Motor City Hami and his excellent tuning guide, @shawnm80, @SW__10, @nowcontrol, @Jeje6410, @skeagracing, @ praiano63 and many others I have forgotten. With the end of GT6 insight I hope @photonrider can keep the AI HUB exciting.

    Well the reason for the post. I won the Intermediate race with a '68 Mazda Cosmo (L10B) with 453 PPIt was hard to get around the M% that was the leader until the final corner to the finish. Also used this car to win the beginner races again.
