    Hello GTS friends

    Last Sunday was not what we expected. At half race PSN decided to disconnected us. :confused: :tdown:

    I will reprogram the race April 14 the 20 minutes what we had where very promising. It took few lap close racing for @fadmad and @richroo to know who will lead the pack. Then @e_Tom step by step manage to get close to @richroo and unfortunately we did stop there ...........

    Hope we could race that car all the way to the finish line next time :cheers:

    Unfortunately I will stop Sunday Cup because round after round people seems to beein losing interest and left the building. I knew that opening a gathering on Sunday would be difficult, we all have things to do on Sunday family, TV, party, sport etc ……………

    I’m working on a different kind of event in order to propose a fun Lobby on Sunday.

    Hope it could bring people in :cheers:

    Hang in there. After 8 years of weekly races I still only have about 10 to 12 regulars that show up each week and about 13 to 20 that show up once in a while.

    You will find so many that say they are wanting to race, saying they will commit, race once maybe twice, or even one league, and then never see them again. For many this is just another video game in their collection thats new and hot and then they move on to other games. Thats fine too but just keep opening public lobbies to meet as many people as you can.

    Sunday Cup Round 1 Massive Hood


    This Sunday we did enjoy a fun gathering on track in Friendly Races community.
    One network trouble came by at second race start to remind us that we where still playing on the PSN. :lol:
    Any way that was a nice event with great racing and good peoples. :cheers:

    First race E-Type Coupe 1961 on Sardegna Road Track C

    As we could have expected lots of cars lost grip and slide on grass.
    We were all in the grid impatient to jump on the green so at first corner happened what was supposed to, an incident involving Tom_Ascar who did his best to avoid BuyBon unfortunately ZeFiX_DarkDreck could not avoid Tom_Ascar who got lucky that the car wasn't broke, in that crash gu1tar3rich didn’t had that luck and was forced to pit on first lap.
    ZeFiX_Xidivoo who was the fasted and most regular driver manage a comfortable gap and won the race with no difficulty.
    BuyBon took the 3th place from the start and manage to keep it till the finish line. After the pit Tom_Ascar pushed he’s car to finally arrived in BuyBon mirrors, but he forgot to put enough fuel had to pit again and was almost overtook by FLAVIO3003217.

    First corner is that massive hood or not

    gu1tar3rich had no luck and was forced to pit on first lap

    Second race TOYOTA 2000GT 1967 on Tokyo Expressway south loop

    For the second race after the Qualify we had troubles with a restart that turn in a lobby disconnected. Some drivers chose not to rejoin the new room and we did start with less peoples.
    Simba2009Lora had a good start and make the gap with gu1tar3rich on first lap.
    Those 2 guys had the most amazing fight during all the race at pit, on track and until the last lap where on that one gu1tar3rich was on fire like ever and finally that payed. Poor Simba2009Lora run out off fuel 200 meters from finish line and gu1tar3rich pass him almost on the line.
    In the group behind Tom_Ascar had another race incident and got his rear transmission broken bad day for him. We can say that on both races BuyBon was pretty regular 3th and 4th well done.

    Really enjoyed my first 2 races with you guys. I messed up a few times in the first race. Note to self, I need to practise the car and track we are racing!

    Second race was much better as I had practised half a dozen laps or so with the combo and, although not as quick as some of you guys, I managed to get some consistency and got myself a 3rd place. Looking forward to the next races.

    Where are we racing next?
