    No, none of what happened at Indy was intentional.. I got completely frazzled..
    Did all of my testing and prep on Thursday and was all set to go, and then proceeded to focus on other things the rest of the week.. Then Sunday I inadvertently raised my power value a bit before the qualy... And then before the start I couldn't figure out why I did that.. So the lesson taken from all that is how important a good practice session is prior to those career races.. Heck, the lobby was open a good hour early.. I was really kicking myself for that and embarrased too.
    I prefer to stay fairly clear of the lap limits and just push hard and not worry about it..

    We usually have practice rooms up during the week before the races, and the more you lap the tracks, the lower the hp values go. This rooms are a lot of fun too so don't hesitate to join in. But we have all gone below cap during the series so don't be too hard on yourself.

    Practice sessions are often as much fun as the actual race. We typically talk about car choices, dial in the power limiter, and have short sprint races to see how traffic and draft affects lap times.

    I didn't have time to practice much for this one and it looks like my car was a rocket in the straight line but not very good in the corners (well, what did you expect from a Mustang :)).

    If I had more time I would have probably picked some "fake American" car like Acura or Scion :)

    Didn't remember to save the replay from R1, but here's a gallery of shots from Laguna Seca.

    I would have tried to make the Shelby GT350 work :lol: Still, the Ford GT is an epic car to have in the garage and I love driving it. At Laguna Seca I was too quick in quali, but in the race I decided to use the H-pattern and clutch. I only had to use 2 gears (2nd and 3rd) around the whole track!

    Indy was good fun too. All I could do is mount the pressure on Javier, but he is a cool customer. I would follow the bumper in the hairpins but lacked a little punch to overtake. Then in the last few laps I had to defend to Mike, only crossing the line 0.002 before him :eek:

    Here are some pictures of the last championship, the National A, I believe it was. Due to how long it takes for me to photograph a race (anywhere between 30 minutes to around 2 hours) I'll be uploading it in two parts. This covers everything from the Night Masters to the 4WD Cup.

    These here are a selection, the full album can be found here.

    A note on my mindset whilst taking these, and probably how I'll continue to in the future. While @Gravitron and all the other regular photomode 'photographers' do a great job of capturing the broad scope of the races, I thought I'd approach it with a tighter focus and attempt to capture the intense little battles that happen throughout the races, and be slightly more liberal with the 'artsy' features like blurs and dodgy compositions.

    Anyway, enjoy these pictures, I'll get round to Part II as and when I can.

    Wooh, my first podium! Who knows, maybe next time I'll take one because of my abilities, rather than just by showing up more :D

    Congratulations Javier @roamer2629 for the win, I think the longest I've held Bart @PASM off for was maybe a lap or so before I buckled or gave up and let him pass, the dude's relentless.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback on the pictures, everyone likes to hear their work is appreciated.

    Awesome! :) Don't be shy to register for this race, there will probably be multiple rooms and drivers will be closely matched.
