    OK. Just a last minute reminder for everyone to join the BMW Vision GT Club (ID 1024237) before the race, since the room will not be open to public.

    If you are still on the drivers list, but will not be able to make it for the race, please let me know asap.

    Otherwise, I will see you at 11:00 EST (16:00 GMT) when I open the room (qualifying starts at 11:45!). It's going be a good one!

    Sorry guys. The heavy damage my car took was too much. I had to retire and take her back to the garage.

    HATE boost as soon as you get into 1st you instantly get banana skins for tyres i cant race like that. You can pit and catch back up in the same lap. Sorry for the tap rs.

    Sorry guys, I disconnected during Quali. I've been having net issues all week but I was hoping it would last long enough to let me participate, but I guess not. Hopefully if there's another one of these at some point then I'll have a better connection and can actually race.

    No probs about that tap, the only thing which pissed me off was the boost... even though i've won it was no real fun as half the competition left the race and boost has nothing to do with real life racing.

    Sorry guys for the boost. That was completely my fault and it did ruin the race. It was my first time organizing the race and I had no idea it would have a big effect (it is on by default).

    I think we need to have a rematch, if all of you are up for it. The changes will be:

    1. No boost
    2. Slipstream set to real

    Let me know if there are any other things that should be changed. Should we have it with a different track? When will be a good date for the rematch? Next Sat?

    Thank you kelrick for a nice evening even when there was that boost. Was an initial race so mistakes could happen - nobody is perfect :) and was fun to see my lap time to be the fastest in race for couple of laps. :D

    Congrats RS to the win even there was only a half of field left till end. Next time i'm sure will be better conditions to compete in bigger bunch. ;)

    Have an Idea, maybe silly one, the idea of having two teams (black and white) like the battle of day and night, good and evil :) how about to maintain it to the future and run a series, where would be made two separate tables - the teams one and the individuals one. The idea is to drive series of one-make cars in two shades as of those two teams-dark and light. Drivers would decide for themselves for which team they would drive and compete against others also for the individual crown. I know that it will need further discusion, but as an idea i think not that bad. :)

    Yes, we could make this a full series :) therefore we need to decide a day and time where we are racing and we should have a race calendar with certain tracks we are racing. @kelrick85 you could have a look on the race calendar from FGTA WGTC season 2, i think these were some great tracks, and paired with this car it should be good fun. :)

    Oh yeah, forgot about the CORE race. The following Saturday or Sunday? Or do you guys prefer weekdays?


    Thanks for the ideas. I looked at the WGTC calendar. I think 10 rounds is a bit much for me to commit and organize. I will probably do 6, 2 from America, Asia-Pacific and Europe, respectively (don't want to spoil the tracks I have in mind though ;)). I will post a draft in the race series forum later on and invite all of you there, to see if you might want to join in!

    well, i am limited with my work schedule, which is kinda odd. :( So sometimes is best for me some weekdays, next weekends, but it has a 4-week repetition. We will see.

    Following week after N24 i am able from wednesday till sunday, if time will be somewhere around yesterdays time.

    Thx for the race and all but you can count me out for a rematch, the combination of time of the day and the very nature of endurance racing are just too much for me. Cheers

    It seems Saturday's in general has many events are involved in and so not a very good choice. Weekdays are hard in terms of work schedule for people both in Europe and North America. I think Sunday's are good options (I'm also thinking in terms of the full series that @RS__96__oO and @Mires are suggesting.

    I suggest tentatively Sunday March 8th, at same time (noon EST /17:00 GMT).

    You are always welcome if you change your mind. These aren't ridiculously long races (I would say semi-endurance), just need to keep your composure for a couple of hours (which I agree is challenging).
