I did a full reboot, and yes the new room is up. Hope to start in about 10min.
Another fantastic night of racing, so thanks to everyone involved, particularly the organisers, this series never fails to entertain.
Firstly, I'd like to apologise to everyone for the first race, once I had @PASM and @jtv90069 in my sights I lost track of everything other than keeping them there, I'd not even come close to that kind of lap time in practice, I don't know what happened. I have a number of theories on it, but all I can really do is assure you all that it wasn't intentional.
Secondly, an apology to @GTP_Patrick1 for being stuck behind my smoke dispensing tail for most of race 2, I hope it wasn't too distracting.
Race 3 was entertaining for the first 8 laps, a four way battle between @roamer2629, @Gravitron, @Nail-27 and myself, but going through a corner 3 cars wide is never going to end well, even on a track as broad as Indy.
As soon as @Gravitron posts the replay for Laguna Seca I'll dust off the old photomode and put together a little highlight gallery of all the action from the National A races (I need to occupy myself until it starts again, after all).
Again, thanks to everyone involved in the organisation, delivery and participation of this series, and I'll work on improving my consistency. For now, I need to wash this sentimentality off of myself before it stains.
Some weird connection problems, but the racing was worth it!
Streets of Willow
Great battles with the usual suspects.
Mike and I had an epic battle at the Indy oval. I was was smiling and stressed for most of the race as the closeness we were racing at was fun and stressful. Mike overtook me on last lap, but I got a good run on the last corner, drafted a bit and was .02 short at the end.
The Laguna race for me was lots of fun too, with the 3 way battle I had with Lucas and Mike. I came out on the short end, but it sure was fun.
I just watched the Indy race. It put a smile on my face. I was actually smiling the whole race as I was mostly following you so there was no pressure on me.
Who said oval racing can't be fun?
Oh, wait ...
Was a great race day yesterday. Although once again, i couldnt avoid some mistakes in my driving. At LS i spun firstly in last corner in lap 2, then in penultimate lap after Corkscrew.
My best race was at WS, yet was the most disappointing race aswell. Took the pole from Lucas in 3rd Q lap, started really well, keeping Ruz on my back (making some space in turns, for not been overtaken at straights). Till lap 3 all was great, then came my unexpected perfect lap of 1'21.840 and i did panicked a bit, took off the throttle for a bit, almost went off the track and starting to work on my way back to P1. In lap 6 i spun and lost another 5 places. Anyway, no other lap i had over the cap time, last two were really close
Indy race, as of practices was obvious who will keep the pace (Pekka, Ruz..) i was looking forward to fight at least for P3, was a great battle with Bart and Kjeld and their Shelby's. Although i had the only no-lifter in the field, it was a bit dull on straights, so it was all the race same - in straights loosing contact, in turns coming back, but wasnt really able to keep pace in draft so im happy with 5th place in this race.
Thank you all for a really nice evening guys. Going to register my buzzing hornet - Z28 and looking forward to another races in career wonder what races will come in next champs
edit: 1'22.840 changed into 1'21.840 as 22 wasnt under cap ups
Just remembered to register my Nova
Seems like I missed another good night of racing .

One man wrote a song about a road to hell his home town is where you would find a name you would identify with a famous motor sport. That person worked (works) with a motor sport driver for numerous years. They are both always heard together on the radio with some famous quotes.
What was the drivers last fastest lap ?
National A overall Winner
Well done @mr_lab_rat for been a tight a and only spending 195500, but luckily you won 830000 to give you the win by 1545cr over @Iceman220 who was even tighter .
Congrats to the drivers who managed to make all the races and now you might be thinking why you spent so much on some of them cars (Z4 for 69k ). But as long as you had fun with them im sure the purchase was wise.

Here is Mikes anthem and hes asked if you can guess the connection to GT.
Again a big thankyou to all who participated in all the races with out you it would not be worth doing and has produced some great moments in the National A Championship from close finishes, grids full of different cars and one of my fave's a classic ferrari racing against a new ferrari and the Dino's racing against a Alfa Mito with a fiat 500 in the mix as well. Im sure you don't see grids like that in regular racing series .
Just a quick Fact that 57 different cars were used in the National A championship, great selection of cars from a Daihatsu SIRION X4 (J) '00 which cost 13900cr to a Lamborghini Diablo GT '00 which cost 300 000cr.
Thanks a lot again and the details of the next part will slowly be released while you all enjoy a change on a Sunday with the Triple Mix Championship.
Well done Mike and Ruz!
C7 riddle: Chris Rea - Rob Smedley - Massa Bahrain 2015 best lap 1:39.094
Rob Smedley is awesome.
Don't know if I read the question right.Was it driver's (personal) fastest lap or overall race fastest lap?
His fastest lap in the last race.
connection is that this song was written for GT2 and is in the soundtrack / main theme of the opening video
edit: well, not sure if written for the game, but is in the opening theme for sure
PS: love that song
I picked it because a lot of guys we compete with were not even born when that song/game came out
That song made me instantly time travel back to my old rented flat downtown, trinitron 21 inch tv and all.
Case in point:
Good riddle Paul, very close to home.
Congratulations you now own a C7 to be deliver'd to your garage soon a long with some extra Credit.

New Capped time rules
There is a separate Qualifying cap and race cap time again to allow you to concentrate on racing instead of clock watching.
Qualifying Cap: 1min 30 seconds
Race Cap: 1min 29.500 seconds
You should set your car up to not exceed the Qualifying cap time the 0.5 seconds cap time for the race is to allow you to concentrate on racing.
Exceeding the qualifying cap still results in a 90 second penalty.
Exceeding the race cap (especially whilst alone) results in a penalty, note there is no set penalty for exceeding the race cap as there is to many factors involved in why a driver went to quick.
Race cap penalties will range from 1 second to numerous positions lost depending on how quick and how much time a driver gained.
Any questions feel free to ask.
