    Lobbies will open @ 9:30pm EST

    Qualifying will consist of two 10 minute heat races. (Please see below for how this will work)
    Heat races will start at 9:45pm EST

    Feature race will be 20 minutes consisting of the top 16 drivers from qualifying races.

    Mazda Roadster Touring Car
    Maximum HP
    Stock weight
    Racing Soft Tires
    Tire wear x6
    Fuel consumption off
    Light damage
    Tuning prohibited
    All driving aids prohibited except ABS

    (2) heat lobbies

    All confirmed drivers will be assigned a random number (1-however many drivers)1 hour prior to lobby opening.

    Your number will determine your lobby placement as well as your starting position for the first heat race.

    Odd numbers go to Lobby A
    Even numbers go to Lobby B

    There will be 2 heat races
    Heat one grid determined by lobby number
    Heat two reverse grid

    Average heat finish determines starting grid position.
    Lobby A lines up on one side of the grid
    Lobby B lines up on the other side

    Top 3 finishers from each lobby receive 1 bonus point each.

    * there is 1 drop week in the 6 week race season, the drop week will subtract your lowest scoring night to hopefully close the points gap for the winner

    Love me some MX-5 Spec racing. I found out that you can map the gas and brake to other buttons on the G29 wheel. So I made the shifter paddles gas and brake, Triangle for shift up and Square for shift down. Anyone heard of Alex Zanardi? Consider me his slightly less quick third cousin twice removed. Yes, there will be a big blue handicap sticker on the rear of my car. Watch out.

    Seriously, look out. I won't be able to keep as good a pace as before but this is still better than nothing.

    Unfortunately. Doc said it looked like someone he knew that broke the same bone during a marathon. I think he was trying to say I wasn't staying off it as much as I should. Next appointment is Dec 2nd, because two weeks would have been Thanksgiving Thursday and they're closed of course. Gotta wait even longer...

    How does everyone feel about a holiday livery challenge?

    Let's say 5 bonus points for the best holiday themed livery.

    This could be any holiday season theme Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, New Year's, etc.

    Well the “one race” sponsor that I had for the wildcard race was impressed with my 5th place finish. When they heard about this series they offered to come aboard. So here is my entry, the JGM ABC Supply/Bryant Mazda. 10A91F73-1921-4D55-AE42-DC082FB3E8D3.jpeg

    I will race this Wednesday, for 1 last time. Next week I go to 2nd shift and will miss the rest of the season! Thank you for letting be part of something pretty damn cool, and I will see you all on Saturday...seeing how that is pretty much the only day I have to race. Thanks again for all the good times!
