    I'm gonna have to miss the 1st race as I'm still sorting out my wheel and it is a complete mess at the moment.

    Sorry mate, but I won't be able to participate. Today I have GTPKS and GTPES's Suzuka 1000kms and I must concentrate on them.

    It's okay. I had to go out and sort some things out also I amended my wheel but I hope everyone had a successful race.

    What a night of racing. The Temple of Speed definitely didn't disappoint. A lyt of close racing, a photo finish for second. This track really punishes mistakes, acceleration proved to be the difference, but it still didn't stop is from having some absolutely thrilling finishes. Nice job everyone!

    "Really punishes mistakes" Me and @Jordiehamz can definetly agree on that one.

    Great racing everyone despite having the slower car out of the benz and I the Lexus seemed to be a lot stable throughout the corners there for being a lot easier to drive consistently until I spun out of course.. Overall I had some amazing battles with Jordie that had me on edge.

    If @lxmmy was there I know he would of won both races with Jordie in second since he would have his slipstream.

    Edit: @NW48 I checked the championship standings for after round 5 shouldn't lxmmy have 156 points and shouldn't I be on 122 points unless my calculations are completely wrong?

    Brilliant is one of many words that can describe this morning for me. Things ran pretty well despite never setting a sub-1:52 before I entered the lobby. Somehow, I was able to snatch pole by 2 tenths with a lap that I was very proud of. Going into the race, I bogged down on the start and lost massive amounts of time to @ItzRacing and Mikey_2412(I dunno if he has a GTP anymore). From then on, I was basically playing catchup. I'd pass one of them only to lose it in the next corner. Definitely one of the best battles I've had in my online racing career. I made some pretty sloppy mistakes as I was still finding the limits of my braking capabilities and even picked up engine damage at one point. Finally, with 2 laps to go, I passed Itz for the lead and barely won.

    Race 2 was a very different story. Starting down in 6th, I was able to make a really good start and jump my way up into second. I waited until lap 5 and finally got passed Itz. I never looked back.

    If someone told me a few months ago that one of my best races of my career would be a 17 lap sprint around Monza, I would have never believed them. Yet here we are. Epic series. Epic Racing. To the next Round!

    I definitely had the advantage in the merc this round but I totally squandered it :lol:. I got some great laps down in quali but just couldn't be as consistent as @Thomas2012 which showed some great pace and had great battles and traded blows on the first 10 laps! Can't wait for next round

    Will there be a race report? I'd love to hear a bit more from the battles in Group A! Also any ideas for the next round?

    I don't have the time to do race reports, but next season, which will be held over November-December, I will be able to, mainly due to the holdiays being on.

    Next round is not this upcoming Saturday, but the Saturday next. It will be a Course Maker track, I am currently finalising the track selection that will be put up for voting.

    My results must be wrong then. My calculations shouldn't be wrong as they are all done through computer calculations. If you could provide me with the Group B results throughout the season, I'll redo them and see what's up

    If this race is in this Saturday, then I won't participate in there because I'll be busy with another stuff.

    Okay.

    Look, I can't say that "I will go to the race" because something may come up on the Saturday. Moreover, I may possibly join the GTPES 24H Spa.

    Oh good I can try my attempts at improving the Lexus, I feel like a McLaren Honda on the straights haha. I know I've been asking a lot but any idea yet on the track? Sorry if it's annoying I'm just interested :p

    No idea. Been a bit busy of late. And also distracted by The Last of Us. Yeah, I finally got around to finding a copy of that to play and it's the best game I've played since Fallout 3.

    I have a copy of the Last of Us on my PS3 and I can't even complete the first mission since my PS3 bugs out and creates a game breaking glitch :/

    If someone is able to provide me with the results for both Monza races, that would be great as I currently cannot access them in GT6 for some reason.

    I saved both races so I can provide the results but I won't be able to get the results until an hour or so is that okay? Unless someone else can post them earlier :tup:
