    Welcome back. If you're racing tonight it is Brands Indy... 4 Q spots. Peugeot also have a manufacturer team spot open.

    I might as well race. I'm not sure if I'll be there in time for pre-Q though.

    Lobby up, Q1 in 50 min so that's your timer.

    This week may be a disaster for me, literally zero practice. Doing update now, I'll be in when it's done.

    If your going to have a race meeting where the three races are at the same time, FFS DON'T have the practice at a different time whereby we set our cars up then find out they run like **** at the new time.

    Not Impressed.

    And don't quote OP Furi.

    Happy with two wins, but it was disappointing to get caught up in the accidents of others in race 3 after such a good first lap and a great car but nonetheless a good points weekend. @raceorama123432 was definitely the widest VW out there.

    At least I got a 3rd out of tonight's racing, it probably took me until halfway through the 1st race to get into a rhythm. Even then I made a couple of dumb mistakes, but hey, at least I still avoid pre-Q next time.

    The story of today's races:

    Get caught up in a off-track moment or drive into a massive cluster:censored:.
    Clawed back like a mother:censored: for a well earned mid-pack finish.

    2 podiums and a top-10 would make for a great weekend, but just can't get over the way I was robbed of a win in R3...

    I just wasn't able to set anything up at Clearways which is where I made the majority of my passes on the FWD cars today. You placed your car well there. Mole being at the head of the pack mean't the slipstream didn't help me out since we both got it so I'd lose a few car lengths which mean't I couldn't try to set up a run to the inside of Druids since I was just a little too far behind.

    That was my plan, I knew you were strong there from R2 so just tried to make your job as hard as possible. Shame about the contact info Paddock, I hate how the tiniest bit of contact can push a car wide in Gran Turismo, I thought we were about to do paddock 2 wide! Shame about the ending I guess. Was hoping to take advantage of Moles tyres at the end.

    Paddock was on me tbh. I ran too tight to the apex and bounced wide off your car.

    Dissapointed with Q. Another two tenths was row one or two and optimal had me at that easy.

    Race 1, me and @GTPorsche pulled away 4th and 5th then I dropped it exit clearways. Ouch.

    Race 2, survived.

    Race 3, totally :censored: by @Ninners after one my teamates tagged him.

    Missed pts in a big way. Bitterly dissapointed.

    I was hoping to end up 4th in points to get rid of my ballast and failed spectacularly at said goal.

    One of those touches where lag amplifies it tenfold unfortunately. I had that in race 2 as well with you. I'll post my POV soon.

    Yeah I know it was mate.

    @Foxed conditions do not equal a half second difference.

    Fun few races and happy with my race 2 + 3 results.. Peugeot is pretty "ok" over a single lap, and don't think Brands Indy suits it, but over a race distance it becomes pretty appalling in the last few laps with tyre wear in comparison to the other cars. Made it tough towards the end of races. Good racing with @raceorama123432 in Race 2+3 though, he got the better of me in Race 2 but I held on in Race 3.
