    I have heard of cars being stuck in the pits during endurance races....really frustrating. Too bad it was a major glitch fest.

    When I saw you just pitch left into the wall I was like wtf! It wasn't a spot where you would see someone get out of shape. Sucks you had issues.

    The race will be re-doed? Why? If it was supposed to be re done again why did we finish the race? I suggest that the race was supposed to be halted from the get go. We crossed the finish all of us clean with the chequered flag. I dont like the ruling of it being re done and not get proper points for this race. In all race series ive joined if it was only because of 1 player then it goes on til the finish. Not unless multiple players or most of the players in the session had the same problems. You just cant say re do without giving proper points on what happened earlier.

    Te? Three of the six drivers had glitch issues which were discovered at about 8 minutes remaining in the race. This is why I made the announcement to all that the race would be completed as a practice session and re-run the following week. Don't worry though, I will be sending you all your prize money winnings from this week!

    We aren't in the habit of rerunning races. In fact, this is the first time in 3 PCars series, and 15ish GT6 series.

    It was a significant glitch(s) that impacted half the racers, including the leader at the time. The discussion over the mics came to a consensus that rerunning the race would be best. The series is run just for fun. Not fun when a glitch ends your race.

    I think you decision to rerun the race is the correct one.

    Sorry, my statement was that we've never had an issue that impacted that many racers before. Hopefully nothing like it happens again.

    But we finished the race already. That means theres no points awarded for that race?

    I don't understand why it let everyone pit cleanly aside from me and Bowink. But once Argo left pit it pulled us out with him. If we have another situation where the room host has to sit out maybe a spot on track should be chosen for them to park the car.
    This is just a pitch for the future if the situation arises again.
    It's a gut wrenching feeling to both driver and host when a race going so well seems to meet its fate this way.
    It was bad luck. But this is my pitch for a future solution.

    I apologize guys. I got stuck at work with a difficult situation involving legal entanglements. Couldn't get out.

    We haven't really heard from all quarters so it sounds like we need to keep to the regular schedule for the remaining two events of this series. We can certainly have a lively discussion about what the next series should look like, cars, timing, event length, etc.

    For this week, room open at 9:45pm ET as usual. Everyone should be pretty well practiced at this track so we should have a good close event.

    Are you Argo or Brad planning on hosting a new gt3 series in the future? I don't mind the current time and day we race but if Monday evenings or Friday evenings worked for everyone that would be good to. Maybe start at 830 or 9 ET and follow the similar format. Maybe run real life weather for the track that day as well.

    I'm planning on hosting the finale of this series next Wednesday. However, after that I am going to take a break until my life settles into a manageable schedule.

    I enjoy racing, I just don't have the time to host right now.
