    Good to have you! Hope you will make more appearances! I wouldn't worry too much about pace - you managed to hold on to P2 for quite a while there in race 2, good job! :tup:

    Fastest Lap: snowgt: 2:26.687
    
    *disconnected about 30s from finishing line
    
    Remarks:

    I decided to classify Carbonox in the position he disconnected at, because it was so close to the end, and his position was not threatened at the time.

    Also, Andil got fastest lap by 0.008 from me in first race.

    Good driving standards all around - thanks to all!

    ps: Cup Ranking updated in post #2...

    Based on the silence, I suppose there's no race this Saturday.

    The race is on, and I sure hope there will be a good turn-out.

    I've also decided that the Cup Ranking will take the best 5 of the last 10 events into account (should we ever get there), so that the ranking doesn't suffer as much, if someone has to skip every other event.

    I had some great scraps, and avoided last place in R2 despite a hopeless-looking situation halfway through, but I have to say the Mini felt terribly disadvantaged at the long sweeping turns. :(

    But on the contrary, I seemed to get some of the greatest exits off that infamous left kink. :D

    First race was meh, thought someone was breaking into my apartment and crashed trying to see what was going on without getting up. Then I got caught up in another wreck. Got fastest lap as consolation though.

    Second race was meh, led for a bit then the car got away from me in the 2nd and 3rd turns. With no diff it's damn hard to save it once you get sideways. Got fastest lap as consolation though.

    A good couple of races tonight, the championship should be pretty close between me and Sig.

    *Position swap with Siggers
    
    Remarks:
    - Result for Race 1 revised due to incident between Roflwaffle and Siggers. It cannot be ultimately determined, if a lag spike contributed to it (although it certainly looked like it), but Siggers certainly wasn't at fault and got pushed into the barrier when he stepped on the brakes by Roflwaffle's car which was already very close before. As also Roflwaffle himself suggested, the positions are reversed therefore.

    2nd race especially was brilliant! Very tight racing with no touches - hats off to all drivers involved!

    It's a pity the turnout seems to be dwindling already. Six is the absolute minimum I will run races at as less doesn't make much sense to me. It would be nice to know, if or how people would like to continue this as the racing has largely been of outstanding quality (and I don't use such words lightly), so on one hand it would be sad having to stop the series, but on the other hand we need a decent number of people attending, otherwise we might as well do something better with our time.

    I'm open to suggestions.

    By the way, my plan after the upcoming Motegi East would include the following races…

    Circuito de la Sierra
    Laguna Seca
    Nürburgring Type V
    Tsukuba
    Bathurst

    I'm not sure that you'll be able to keep the series going after Motegi with that many events with these sorts of attendance numbers, but it really depends on how many people show up for Motegi.

    I don't think I will be here for the next two rounds. To be honest, while it was good refreshing fun I think I can no longer improve my driving skills from this series if the numbers are going to be low.

    Hi people,

    after a lot of contemplation over the last few days I've decided to discontinue this series. Don't think for a second that I'm taking this decision lightly, but the low turnout really made it only a matter of time before this would have happened.

    So, before this becomes a chore more than anything, I would like to thank all participating drivers for their impeccable conduct - it was more than I would have dared to hope for. Maybe the series just came a bit too late in GT6's lifespan to attract the necessary number of participants.

    Thanks to all of you again and see you on track!

    Given GT6 is on life support now, this series was great.

    The final race at Brands gave the HTCC a high point to go out on. :tup:

    Saturday is kind of busy day for me. I have other races and I just have to decided which ones I'm able to run in given time scheduler. They were fun races which ones I could join you.
