    The air is hard to breathe up here in the magical world of D1 Silver! :eek: I will need a while to acclimatize before the final push upwards to where gods live...:bowdown: I have a feeling I will be living here for a while as that last stretch of mountain looks impossible!!

    Division 1 Silver has 14 members with a good number of D1 Bronze members poised to enter in the coming weeks. This should lead to a great, friendly competition here...:) I might actually get a podium on my first TT as a D1 Silver driver....(there are only three silver drivers entered!) :lol::lol:

    It can be a bit tedious. Especially when you think you're gonna have a really good handicap, but end up being positive.

    You may want to consider something a bit more permanent than a tent :lol::lol::lol:

    Brandon @ItsAllAboutWins isn't joking about getting negative handicaps...damn near impossible for me now but I'm happy to have even got this far up the divisions

    It is a really nice tent Mike! :lol::lol:

    You will most certainly be in D1 Gold and take your place with the other Gods...it is a matter of time and the right couple of TT to come along that you excel in! You are an extremely good pilot Mike...;)

    Now, of course, it would help if the D1G gang would all be at a bachelor party or something similar that week!! :lol:

    @Bass Addict you are way too kind sir but I'll hang with the silver guys. I can almost keep up with most now that @GTP_randy has made it where he belongs

    Haha my current handicap is 1.8xx but I haven't played in almost 10 months. Next TT I submit will be for placement. If I can run this weekend at Monza, I should be able to get it submitted.

    Wait for another TT that requires finesse, won't be long and I may have the inside track on that information ;)

    You two cagey veterans make me laugh...:)

    This time next week @Argon Mike will be 1.398 (+.065) or so & @dranddad Phillip will be 1.345 (+.012) or so...

    I, on the other hand, am staring at the mountain of +.290 :eek::eek::eek:

    Get Gud has taken on a new meaning! :lol:

    I'm under the impression, that if you don't do well in consecutive weeks TT and you drop a few places, that moves you back down the pecking order.
    Not fully understanding how promotions work, bit in the dark.

    All I'm trying to do is chip away at my rating to see if I can make D1G by my 66th b,day this December make Phillip a happy bunny.

    Nope, if you have a + handicap in a TT, you stay right where you are Phillip. You can only move up the ladder not down! :tup:

    You can do it Phillip!!

    Good luck with getting D1G guys it's only a matter of time ;):tup:

    When you get there it gets even harder to progress among the aliens.. my handicap for Week 48 was 0.338 now that's obviously because no other D1G guys raced it... but for fetchy to then make up a D1G time of 1'40.7 being a par lap due to my standings in the D1G division is a bit of a piss take if you ask me.. :p My target was about 1'40.7 but that's beside the point :p

    It basically suggests that I was just under .3 of a second behind some invisible hotlapper who didn't even need to submit to make my handicap even worse :D hope this makes sense to somebody as fetchbots predictive results don't really make sense to me :p

    Keep pushing guys and Good luck!! :cheers:

    @Mr P

    Thanks Ron I was talking to Larry in the week my best last sector was a .208 would have give me a 1'40.785 but alas my subconscious goes into protection mode in the last sector on a good lap every time.

    Keep pushing us on Ron its appreciated. :tup:
