    @snowgt Any times and such from the practice sessions? I unfortunately was away this weekend (and last) so I never got to see any of the practices.

    Sure. We had 1:23's at Rome Reverse and 1:38's at Motegi East. We didn't test at Silverstone GP, but times should be around 2:30/31.

    Knowing you, I'm sure you'll be fine pace-wise. ;)

    Hi Eric. Are you familiar with the OLR's and clean racing? I'm asking this, because some experience in traffic and good awareness of other driver's behaviour are expected.

    If you think that applies, I'd be happy to send you an invite.

    I believe it applies, and I appreciate your diligence in trying to ensure a clean race. I will be on the lookout for the invite. Thanks very much

    I've finish my testing and Nissan Fairlady 2000 came the winner - I'll be using it.

    I might have chance to join 2nd race on Saturday and that means I'll be starting back on the starting grid.

    By the way, I'm going to be driving the car that the guy in my profile picture drove to victory at the 4 Hours of Sebring in 1966. (at least for the first couple of races)

    Room is up. Qualifying should start at 19:00 UTC / 20:00 BST / 21:00 CET / 15:00 US EDT / 12:00 US PDT.

    As a reminder, qualifying will consist only of one timed lap, after which everyone should stay on track until told to clear to lobby.

    Races will start with a rolling start in staggered formation after 1 formation lap at 100km/h (62mph), slow down to 80km/h (50mph) before last corner before start. No overtaking before start/finish line is allowed.

    Please do respect track limits! Repeat offenders will be penalised.

    Despite falling behind, started race 1 in the 2:36's and ended race 2 with 2:32's, I'm happy.

    That feeling when you go side by side though the Maggotts, Becketts and Chapel section without touching or knocking someone off the track. :O

    Great racing but as I said, I am away next two Saturday's so I won't be able to race if one is held there.

    @LongbowX might I recommend not dropping out and try the Alfa or another car next race? Same for you @FlyingFox

    That was an embarrassing evening I don't mind saying.

    Either my driving is unbelievably poor or something is radically wrong with the Celica. From first to last in 3 laps :ouch:

    Are you using automatic transmission? You will achieve faster times if you use manual because you can control the engine breaking of the car.

    There is no championship, so there are no dropped rounds. Ranking takes the last 5 events into account.

    For me this series is great for improving racecraft. As the cars are slower you have more time to think about the next corner so you can have giant pack races which are completely clean. Contrast to WSC, where you can go an entire race and only make 1 overtake, or ToCA where its just a giant scrap for positions and points. While I may not be attending every week it's ideal for me to brush up on close combat attacking/defending skills whenever I am feeling rusty.

    Thank you for your suggestion and care. Due to other concerns however, I won't be taking part for the near future. I will consider it in the future though.

    Everyone conducted themselves with very high skill, so that's not one of them.
