    Le Mans, done. I finally did it, I finally won a race in my favorite track.

    Got a pole from a 3min28s time with the Porsche 919, which I'm sure I can drop quite a bit yet. By the end of the first lap, I was 5 seconds ahead, which gave me the chance of just micromanage fuel consumption so that I basically had fuel for going 100% in the last lap to get a fastest time of 3min24. Eventually, I ended the race 14 seconds ahead of the second placed guy. Pretty much everyone else had to stop :D.

    I had a great week at the RBR last week. It's such a fast lap- and so many opportunities to come in hot with some late braking. It'd be a great circuit for drifting.

    However, on to my favorite- Le Mans! Definitely want to try some different cars this week. Being a Toyota fan I've always used the TS050, which is stable and predictable. Maybe I'll try something hotter from Group C. Looking forward to it!

    I had time for 2 C races before work, today. Started from the back in both. First one was in the TS050. I started the final lap in 7th, and passed 2 guys who ran out of gas for a 5th place finish.

    2nd race was in the LM55. I got too aggressive at the start, and got knocked in the sand, winding up dead last. My fault. :banghead:


    Near the end of the 3rd lap, I made it up to 6th, then look what happened. Check out out the leaderboard on the top left of the screen. :lol:


    Finished 3rd. :tup:

    *For those who prefer automatic transmissions, and use fuel mapping for fuel saving, rather than short-shifting, the LM55 goes 5.1 laps with FM3. :)

    Killed it at the RBR, wish i had more time to race, got myself about 4,000 DR points in three nights and finished the week as an A-A driver. The track really suits me as it has big stops, a lack of long corners that kill me on the DS4, and if you're patent, guys will fall off the road, take each other out or will get a time penalty. penalties REALLY hurt at the RBR because even half a second on the back straight is a full 3 second loss of time.

    The key there is patience and to yield a bit when fighting, exits are absolutely critical so no point going in late on the inside as you will just be dead meat on the straight. Just wait, brake a touch early and exit hard, guys often screw up even in SR-S races.

    Will not race this week as I will be busy and all three races are terrible for me.
