    Race A was a hoot. I've learned to embrace the chaos of T1. Just let it happen, stay on track, find your passes in Lap 2 and on. The penalties are absolutely brutal. I'm trying to give space and if someone turns into you its an SR down. One SR down without a penalty is enough to drop your SR, add to that a penalty and ouch. Only managed two out 7 clean. Afraid to even bring up Kudos. LOL. Did pick up a few W's usually from p2. Seems like pole is the worst place to start. That outside into T1 is a death warrant.

    I had a great door to door battle with a Brazilian this morning UDI_Wilian. Both gave space, but still raced hard. Lots of fun. It is difficult to have a good race and salvage SR, though. Trying to hang on someones bumper you'll have a touch or two. Not talking murder or push to pass, just little taps. Those SR downs are brutal in Race A.

    Ohhhh that was you! Ha I said to my missus there was a particularly polite racer tonight. I think I nabbed you the race before too in a cleaner move than the second race. OK "unclean" is a bit unfair but I was not up to your C-pillar and ddn't make the apex. For T1 a NGP it was clean but I would normally get further up before passing. I was afraid of the yellow Porsche, I'd had 4 races with that guy and he pushes past a bit aggressively and was behind me so I was edgy.

    Don't worry about the tap, mostly cos I got away with it! I've had random brain fade there where I use the wrong braking marker, Bathurst into the chase is the same, you realise you're 50 metres too late and oooooohhhhh no.

    The SR system seems to have been tweaked a bit. I’m in a bit of a downward spiral. Had a coupe of bad FIA races and thought I could try get it back up in daily races. Got pushed off the track in race B and picked up a 1 second penalty and dropped another 7 SR. I’m down to 61 SR now. Having a tough time at the moment.

    You can only gain (a little) SR in race A and B with absolutely no front/back contact. Any penalty or SR Down is -10 SR while race B is worth 6 SR at most with clean race bonus. Race C should have more SR. It depends on the total number of sectors in a race, about 0.30 to 0.45 SR per sector. (Seems to be on the low end nowadays while SR deductions are very high)

    Yeah I guessed the longer races are much better for SR as there’s more sectors. I’ve avoided race A and B for a while now but thought I’d give them a go. Back to only doing FIA races and the occasional race C now I think! People are too aggressive in dailies, at least at my level.

    Any good tips to restore SR? Should I just go to Race B with no qualification time and do a few races without any contact in the back of the pack?

    Somehow missed a bunch of messages discussing exactly that right before my comment.

    So a couple of edits:

    Basically the longer race means better SR, sounds reasonable. Sometimes I'm thinking about doing only FIA races, what's your take?

    It might sound stupid, but I get really obsessed with dailies. I can spend a lot of time improving my qualification time and then giving myself too many excuses to go "one more time". With FIA races there are only a couple of days a week and I won't be able to do more than two races a day even if I wanted to.

    The only problem with that is you loose DR last week I did this to get back to SR 99 and ended up loosing all my DR.

    Somehow didn't think of that, thanks for the tip :tup:

    Looks like longer races is the best way to go.

    I've had some good racing at Race A. 6 races with 2 podiums and win in the Megane. I expected bumping/shoving and T1 chaos going into it but none so far, only a few unintentional mistakes. I don't know if it's considered a 'dirty' pleasure or unpopular opinion but I enjoy driving FF cars the most since switching to a wheel.

    Although a shame the race is over so quick with a 9 min wait for the next. If it were 8 laps, I'd probably race it more.

    Not sure how much all is, but if you're not careful with SR, you get a DR reset. I lost 13,000 DR just 2 weeks ago because I had two bad races and a really bad penalty that wasn't my fault. Had I taken a second to up my SR by staying uber clean and losing say 1,200 DR in the process, I would've saved 11,800. I'm at SR 76 and I need to hit Race C to get my SR back up. I still race, I just don't go for iffy overtakes and don't ride the person in fronts bumper like I normally do.

    It is better losing DR racing, instead of losing at once with an SR/DR reset :D

    Amen to this.
    Why does PD even NEED the DR reset in the first place? Just do the matchmaking based on DR, pair A drivers with A drivers, B's with B's and so on, then sort them by SR, so you have lobbies of all A/S, A/A, A/B, etc. all the way to E, then do the same for DR B, DR C, and so on.

    I sometimes think PD does things in an incoherent way on purpose...

    Edit: Maybe the FIA influenced them. Any of you remember the old 2017 / 2018 Formula 1 grid penalty system? It was so confusing!

    Well that's capped off a terrible week for me. I gave race C a go and got punted to hell. The result was a DR reset and so in the space of one week I've gone from 32k DR/99 SR to 3k DR/2 SR.

    So close and tempting to jump in Race B, but I'm feeling the risk of any type of contact.

    Three of my four Daily Race As this morning. Messed up the replay save of the 4th, but it was a pretty good race as well.

    Seems like some A/S people have no chill when overtaking. Video will be up later. I'm so mad right now, going back to the Vantage for the race. Power advantage is significant.
