Before logging off last night I could see my time and fad's time on ps3, however, no TT times are showing on my PC. Yeah, stayed all the way until the end. Unusually unusual.

Usually everyone makes a good number of mistakes and often I'm trying to find who made the least mistakes. I also include where the driver finished in my thinking as well. In the incident you mentioned, it was just an unavoidable accident. There wasn't much you could have done about it. Look how clean you were with me on the last lap of the first race! Great stuff Al.

I still remember that breaking point. :embarrassed::embarrassed::embarrassed::gtpflag:

That's a decent time Al. I'm still not happy with my tune yet.

FYI: We'll be running both races Reverse Grid this weekend at Paul's track. It's a really difficult track to pass on so I expect to see a lot of patient drivers on Saturday night biding their time, waiting for the right opportunity. Forcing a pass here is not the way to go, it's not that kinda track. Quali as usual, give it your all. Good luck all for the last madness meet in GT6!:cheers:

Quali with reverse grid race...hmm...not good.

I trust the people I'm racing with to do qualifying as usual. It's a good bunch of guys and only for fun.

Or am I missing something Jammy?

Edit: we ran both races last week with a Slowest First setting and everyone gave it their all. The idea is to keep the pack together so that we've got someone to race against rather than driving around on your lonesome for 40 minutes.

What's a point of quali with reverse grid...why would I run for my money to get last spot in the grid...don't use quali at all it's waste of time now... anyway your series your rules.
It's just to me this seems little odd.

I suppose Jammy does have a point about qualifying.

It's a shame that there isn't a random grid order that could be used for the first race. It would mix it up without having to qualify.
Does practice/race mode if everyone stays in the pits have the desired effect?

Of course Quali with with a Slowest First setting doesn't make sense; everyone knows that. Is there a difference between "Practice/Race/Slowest First" vs. "Practice/Quali/Race/Slowest First? I wanted everyone to set a time rather than just turn up at the eleventh hour and be in Pole/at the front. I just want some of the slower drivers and those who haven't had a chance to practice to feel part of it. Given the above, what's the best suggestion?

I don't know how that would work Paul.

Had some good races on Raebrook last night:tup: And your new track, Eifel Downs (?) is another If classic and would have been great to race the Muscle on. Would be perfect for blue's series:cheers:

Okay, I can see that I'm overthinking this, trying too hard to make it fun for everyone. I was trying to avoid a procession, racing alone, which can be very boring. Race night will be as per normal.

Ok I can see your point of view and I don't wanna spoil your wish with my whining. I can live with that reverse grid.
I think in "Practice/Race/Slowest First or fastest first" mode everyone who don't make any laptimes in practice will be put in grid in some random order.

Joe. :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:Just want to say again that it's a brilliant championship and I've really enjoyed racing with everyone.
Keep the format as it is because it works. We all have fun and the close racing happens without it being contrived. But i also think it's good for the fast guys to show what they can do and something for us slower ones to try to emulate. I enjoy my mid pack and tail ender racing.:D

Looking forward to our finale. As usual haven't turned a wheel in the last car or track!?!
:cheers:

You have a good point mate - I just wanted others to enjoy being at the top for a change (and wasn't sure of the best way to achieve that).

Thanks for all for your comments and to Suts above. We'll stick to the format we have been using throughout the championship:tup:

Oh thanks Al, glad you like it.

Rain? No I've not tried it out with added weather. I have enough trouble in the dry so I usually try to avoid the wet. :)

Have a look around in my track folder there may be some others you might like also. I seem to get favourable reports.


Had some good races on Raebrook last night
Have you found any overtaking places yet? ;)
Glad you liked the new track. Nice and wide for side by side racing.

Tooma will be hosting the last race of the Muscle Car Madness series tonight. Maybe the more central location will reduce the amount of lag that's been around this week.

Looking forward to the final race in the series:tup:

As we approach the last race of this championship I
just wanted to share this video before the final chapter
is written. It is a look inside for those who missed the
Motoyama Speedway races, a sort of Reefer Madness showcase.
This is how we raced and bantered and these are the kind of race
meets that you thread lurkers missed out on. ; )
It might take a little while before the HD viewing is finished processing.
It's currently on 360p and working towards 720p.

Great video jocke, cool to hear all the chat. Thanks to all for waiting for me to arrive, really kind. The whole time watching it I'm shouting "read the thread, read the thread, I'm not going to make it!" Shows the good spirit among us and the great vibe Joe has created. Very touching.

Well that's the end of another great championship, and I hand my trophy over to a very worthy winner Joe. Well done mate, and thanks again for all your hard work putting this together.

Really cool to hear and see all our chat, Jocke. :cool:

Thank you Joe for another fantastic championship. :bowdown:Amazing cars and great user tracks by you, BB, tooma, Jocke and of course Paul. :bowdown:

As said already it's your personality and effort you put into this that gets us all here and makes us want to race with you and all our old and new friends.

Paul, great track last night. 👍 I really got into its flow but couldn't get below 1:50ish. However PSN has been rubbish so those 2 big lag spikes I experienced dropped me from 1st to 8th and my own mistakes dropped me further. :crazy: But it was the little battles and overtakes and side by side racing with minimal contact that makes this championship and racing with everyone so much fun. :lol:

Hope to "see" everyone soon in other races and clubs.

Thanks again Joe and Old Muscle racers.
:cheers:

Colin, I appreciate your words mate, thanks. Same to you Suts. Good lads!

Well, I guess it's time to put the big brutes to bed now. Judging by the replays the last race was full of action, maybe the most action packed event of all along with Silverstone?

Got to apologise to Tom_Ascar and Jammy. I came off and, looking at the map, thought I had enough time to rejoin safely but instead came back on the track in front of Tom. Sorry mate. Same to Jammy for the tap onto the grass at the start of Race 2. (Replays are a great thing.) Had some great battles this morning and throughout the championship. In the main we had great turnouts, hard but considerate driving, good banter and a wonderful time watching Jocke's videos. I loved chillin' out with fad, Tom_Ascar, Al, richy and others during the weekday practices and my usual post-race chats with Tooma. To me it's more about the people than it is about the TROPHY 'cos without the right people the trophy means nothing. Jammy is the real winner anyway and I'm sure will continue to grow as a driver. Thanks again to all for giving up your precious time to race in the Madness Series and to Jocke for making all your videos and to the track creators for affording us these unique experiences. If this was a success, it's only because of you guys! As Al would say "Good driving friends." :cheers:
