    Hard top. ;)

    Points are updated. There will of course be a shakeup when drop rounds go into effect for those that haven't missed any rounds, but it is quite close up top. Bathurst next week!

    -------------------------------------

    As far as my races, pretty forgettable. Didn't have any pace, couldn't get the handle on the car in the cloudy conditions, was way too loose for me. Second race felt better off the start with a bit more understeer but had a small radar incident with @JakeKing39 where I got the worst end of it. Then I made a mistake shortly after and really put the nail in the coffin. Third race went better, picked up 5 spots for a good finish but no matter how hard I pushed the car I was still losing 2-3 tenths a lap to the leaders. *shrugs*

    You know, I already started this series, so I won't quit it, but I started to hate the Miata after the Brands Hatch race. Does anyone have any tips to be faster with it? Because I have a total different pace with others race cars. I finished last in almost every race, so what should I do to at least enjoy more racing with this car? Anyway, @Wardez @Nicktune @GT_Alex74 you are aliens. I decided to quit Race 3, and to spectate you, and wow, it was impressive how you all didn't do any mistake.

    If you hadn't, you would have jumped up a spot in the point standings. ;)

    @RappyThePro at your level, for now focus on being smooth and consistent with your inputs. Don't power out too soon with this car as it's quite understeery. When you can lap consistently, then you can start to learn how to throw it in the corners. There's also a sweet spot where you can use the throttle to help it rotate a bit. Only practice will help you figure it out though.

    Man I wish this series was at a different time slot as I‘m already occupied elsewhere at that exact time slot :(

    Thanks. Actually lapping constantly isn't my problem, last races I made 52' every lap. The fact is that when I try to push more, the car understeers and oversteers too much, even when I don't go on the throttle too soon, and I get the opposite effect, instead of going faster I go slower.

    Announcement:

    Who's up for some Kangaroo dodging? Bathurst this weekend! Long track equals low lap counts, but the long straights will be interesting with the draft in play. Should be a great time! :D As always, copy/paste and add your name to the list. :tup:

    Won't be able to race this weekend guys. Racing a little Spec Miata at New Jersey Motorsport Park. Will try to get some decent footage.

    Have fun at the mountain boys!

    Edit: @RappyThePro Be patient and enjoy what you do. A lot of us have been racing here for nearly 10years. It's not happening overnight. :tup: You can improve your craft with licences tests and circuit experience. Look at the replays of the top ten in daily race.

    Looking like a small grid this weekend. Worst part about running these things is watching the grid shrink as the season goes on.

    Unfortunately I think you have two things going against you.

    1) You're a single person and not an organization, so people automatically think of this as more casual.
    2) Being on Sunday afternoon for the US and being seen as casual gives people less incentive to show up instead of doing any other activity with their day.

    I really wish we could bring you under the IRS banner and you would still have your Sunday to play around with, but I think it will help bring in a few more consistently attending drivers.

    I honestly don't get why it matters if one person or multiple are running it. Pretty much turns out the same way as far as how everything is presented. Sunday afternoons work best for me because it doesn't involve work and it's my sit around the house and do nothing day. Saturdays, especially now that the temperatures here are cooling off, are my days to go out and do things.

    I don't think it matters either but some people do think that way.

    Acronyms often mean it’s an event run by self-important pricks, and that seems to be the case with about 70% of the series on GTP.

    Every Sunday series I’ve been apart of has gone like this, other than ones run in public lobbies

    The truth is that most people are incredibly boring and anything other than Gr.3 or Gr.4 scares them.
