    To me the second hit looked like the Alfa Romeo hit @TRL LIGHTNING into Lopez, then passed them both on the inside.

    I'm also amazed at how those guys can drive sub-par cars at such incredible pace. I wonder if for the aliens the meta shifts somewhat.

    For me personally when i was driving i didn't feel getting hit by the Alfa when i hit the Toyota on the second time. But i slowed to let the Toyota throw again.

    Ideally every manufacturer has an equal chance of winning the World Tour but it just isn't the case.

    Look at Alfa Romeo. Arguably the most stacked team as each of their drivers are also in the Top 5 of their respective Nations Cup competitions. And yet they still weren't close to getting a podium overall at the World Tour.

    Always a bad idea to monitor YouTube chat, regardless of content :D

    I couldn't really tell from the stream - it looked like your car didn't slow between the two taps, as if you'd got some extra speed from behind, but I actually couldn't spot your speed going up (which is usually the tell-tale sign of getting tagged!), so I just wasn't sure.

    Perhaps the stewards saw our article about you getting a penalty at RBR despite letting people past and decided not to penalise you for the tap because you let the Toyota keep the place :lol:

    Since when is referring to a country where someone comes from disrespectful?

    So, GT3 cars are called Silver Arrows are they?

    He surely doesn’t play the game and practice as much so he’s likely slower than Lokowski.

    And I think you’re referring to Valverda? He’s not Chilean, I think he’s from Costa Rica

    On the train heading into the city. Should be at the venue by 11:30 the latest. Anyone there yet? I've got a white Senna hat and Le Mans shirt. If you see me call me out!

    Does racing start at the same time as yesterday?

    Yep. You'll see our article in about 90 minutes, with the stream starting an hour after that.

    I'll merge the article's thread into this one. Seems appropriate to have the live stream threads in the same place!

    Yeah, you're right. Of course it is pretty much impossible to have perfect balance (besides having identical cars), since one is going to favor better handling vs another straight speed etc, but I do wish some balancing was done on the lesser played ones. It seems the BoP updates always focus on the top choices, and cars like the Z4 get zero attention.

    Also, Toyota has always been a top choice and is also an official partner. Coincidence? :rolleyes:

    Mmh seems interesting to have the Fittipaldi with sports hard in Nations.
    Car automatically is equipped with racing hard and i enjoy driving it (aside a bit of understeer)

    Glad they are avoiding the unbalanced N class, the Gr.B should be slightly more balanced

    As usual they've got 2 train lines using 1 on a Sunday and the (F) Train is crawling into the city.

    Was hoping to get there by 1pm but it's looking more like 1:15ish.

    I'm wearing a blue N.Y. Rangers tee shirt.

    Looking forward to it :gtpflag:.

    BoP should be based on overall usage stats, for events where all cars in that class are eligible. (As opposed to have some available, like some of the Gr.4 races that were limited to the FF cars. That said I think more events with “sub-rules” would be great, too, like a Gr.1 race that’s more specifically limited to the Group C cars.)

    Boooooooo. As a Vancouver fan, I'm obligated to boo by law.

    Checks username. Never mind, carry on. Although you might be talking about Denis and I'm talking about Felix. :lol:

    Great write up! :tup:

    Latkovski on provisional pole:

    There'll be a superpole on the broadcast (top six) and that'll determine their Race A/B starting positions.

    Well, so much for that new Real World Track I was looking forward to.
