    My son so graciously left me his PSP to use this week, so I'll be a bit more active than I have been over the past two challenges (though this is still a very busy week for me).

    I ran the cars for about 40 minutes last night and got a 1'58.7xx (stock) and a 1'39.6xx (race).

    Even though I failed last week by spending too much time on the stock car and not enough on the race version... I have decided that my only hope of moving up a place is in the stock car challenge - so that's where I'll (again) focus most of my efforts.

    I should also mention that both of these cars are fun to drive - especially the S800 race car!

    Yeah I really love these cars on Suzuka West... they're so effortless around the track.

    Good to know that !!! Good luck Detroitbb !

    This final challenge is very exciting : in the Stock Car Championship you're only 0.573 behind and in the Race Car Championship you're only 0.795 behind !!! Everything is possible, one great lap and you can be ahead !

    I'll try my best too ;)...

    I won my iRacing race at Laguna Seca, woooo. Ran the fastest in practice, got pole in qualifying, then spun on the corkscrew on lap two and fought my way back to 1st place on the third lap and held onto it from there, pulling out a 43 second lead at the end of the 18 lap race. My teammate took 3rd place, so that's two 1-3s for us in a row. Good times.

    Just found out the guy hosting our iRacing league has a site up for it. I wish he still had the South Boston race summary up, as I was told it was very entertaining.

    Some of the highlights from the Laguna Seca event are there now.

    That's me in the black/yellow Solstice running away on the first lap. :D

    It's not so much me... I attribute it more to my son's PSP. Specifically, his silky smooth analog stick - it's so nice to play with.

    :tdown:

    Have you guys noticed the 'smilies'? They are all the same today! Ha ha ha...

    hey glubags, what about the next season of the time challenge , is there going to be a next one, because if it is i like to help you picking some cars and tracks in whatever version you wanna do it, (i.e. an prototipe time challenge or a rally time challenge or a supercar time challenge) in whatever idea that are you going im going as well, if there is any.

    PS: at the begining of this time challenge i got a lot of work but now i am free for the next one, and congratulations fo your victory on the i racing, see this prof my theory of "champions can be made by gran turismo"

    Nice job Detroitbb !!!

    I don't have new times because it looks like I can't be faster AND clean ! I spent more than two hours with this combo and nothing good came up... So frustrating !!!

    So I ran a little bit in DriftTime challenge...
    BTW, I think having two tires on the grass and two on the rumble/ripple strips isn't clean is strict but I love it ! It is more challenging and... just better !
    (however, it does make a difference -not huge though- when it is considered clean, I saw that in DriftTime's challenge...)

    Good luck guys !

    I ran laps for well over an hour last night, and while I got close to my ghost a few times, I never could improve enough to beat my personal best. I think this is a good sign that 'my wall' is pretty close.

    I am keeping on hitting mine ! :lol: ! Still the same : faster but not clean... The ones I posted above might be my submission ones cause I'm tired of it... I decided to make another list (Did I become a list addict too ???)

    I couldn't do it... If I ran a perfect lap (and that would require a huge investment of time, patience and a ton of luck), I could shave 2 tenths off the stock car's time and maybe another 2 tenths off the race car's time. These times will have to do!
