Thanks for the racing. Race 1 was good although I was really struggling with the difference between the Medium and Hard tyres and even though I had good pace I just couldn’t use it.
Apologies for bailing or race 2, tiredness was setting in and I was blowing brake markers all over the place so I called it a day before I ruined someone else’s race.

Sorry for my absence. I had every intention to race but lately I cant seem to stay up past 6pm...
Thanks for the communication albeit a bit late. Usually I'd offer the spot to the Reserves, but since the Reserve roster in its current form seems content to remain Reserves, I will be leaving you in place on your current team. Sorry we missed you last night, and hope we get you on the grid again for next event at Laguna Seca. :cheers:

I don’t know what I need to do... I’ve never had this problem :indiff:. I need personal wake up calls from the grid, @Phlano099 @Yugofan please call my cell an hour before the next event 👍

I honestly feel terrible about this happening with me again. I just created a permanent set of alarms that will go off every Friday at 8:30PM.

9:30PM eastern feels like I’m trying to stay up till midnight :lol:. I used to always eat dinner super late, after racing and that switch must be part of the problem.

Post Race Report
Event #9
at Fuji F
March 19th, 2021
Sorry for the delayed post race report, but better late than never for such a great racing event. Simply put, there were battles all across the grid in both races with many of them featuring 3 or more in play. From my seat, I had some epic battles with @Yugofan, @Roman_GT23, @Noob01_lmdead, and especially @Phlano099. Too many details to sum up in words, but the replays will showcase all of them. @TEX36 and @Rob Brown had a great battle and run to the finish line in Race 2, but ultimately @Noob01_lmdead/Rauljimenez76 lapped and finished consistently enough to secure the overall win on the night by tiebreaker.
Also, a note to point out, is have a look at the fast laps across the field and how close they were...Great racing gentlemen. :cheers:

If anyone else cares to share and elaborate on their battles, feel free to share them with us.
No incidents have been filed. A few were noticed during my brief review of the replays, though most if not all appeared to have been worked out on track. Great Sportsmanship Gentlemen. :cheers:

Congratulations to our Event #9 Winner
@Noob01_lmdead/Rauljimenez76
:cheers:
and our top 3 overall:
1ST: @Noob01_lmdead/Rauljimenez76
2ND: @Roman_GT23
3RD: @llNovall

Ballast adjustments have been posted. A 2% weight ballast was added for our winner, and a 1% weight ballast add for our 2nd and 3rd place finishers.

Enjoy :cheers:
Event #9, Race 1 at Fuji F on 3/19/21


Event #9, Race 2 at Fuji F on 3/19/21

Finally had a little time in between the busy to have a straight watch at the first replay. While 1st-4th were securely decided before the final 3 laps, the races between 5th thru 10th were epic....certainly worth the watch. @Phlano099 , those final 2-3 laps were about as climatic and as intense as it gets for a good long race, especially the side by side sequences we had, and with the added pressure from @nmcp1 and @Kermit_2142 (who were also being pressured by a battling @TEX36 and @Yugofan only added to the overall pressure. If you don't have the time to watch the whole replay, at least have a look at the final 5-7 minutes of Race 1. Awesome racing.:cheers: BTW, Race 2 Broadcast has been added to the above post and archived on the first page of the thread.
