And yes, I intend to do just that.
Let's hope you have a similar qualifying performance so the rest of us can pretend like we have a chance to win for a couple laps.
If anyone wants a good time, come on out to La Sarthe tomorrow. Tuesday night was by far the best race of this series.
I'm not sure I can make this Saturday's race, its my Son's Christening on Sunday and I know the Wife will have me blowing balloons up or something all night long
So I think it's best i make my apologies now.
Do you have to break a champagne bottle over his head?
No just beer
Good, then he won't grow up to be a pansy.
Let's hope not, although he is a bit of a Mummy's boy right now...!
I shall be getting my daughter into karting soon too
Hey guys I won't be able to make tomorrow, had family thing come up
Just a reminder, the race is today at 3pm EST. We will be doing open 10 minute qualifying session in "practice mode" and will no longer be using the automated qualifying. Let me know if there are any questions about qualifying.
"Like" this post if you'll be attending.
What's the dress code? Black tie or smart-casual?
Flip flops and Hawaiian shirts.
But please no socks with sandals:
But that ^ is the 'Murican way!
Good luck with the race today guys. Wish I could make an appearance, la Sarthe is a fun track.
Just don't get caught up in the fireworks display at night. You might miss your braking point.
Please... Stop.. No more men in shorts...
And specially no socks in sandals
However, I will dress appropriate for the event on this historical track:
Long pants (not jeans), shirt (but no tie) with the 2 top buttons open, and then a 12 year old single malt whisky
The room is open for practice. Qualifying will start at 3pm EST, 10 minutes long so you basically get one flying lap.
Well, that serves me right for post that videos fashion statement above. Game froze on me in the first chicane.
I shall console myself with ale.
Thank you all for good, clean and fun racing...
RD... We missed you
Sag... It was fun, getting the chance to hold you off, for as long as possible
See you all (hopefully) next week...!
Good racing all. Congrats to Saga on clinching both championships.
Curious to find out what happened to sag at the start. I'm certain that was the only reason I was able to pull off a win/
I'm guessing he just thought it would be more fun to race with the pack than walk off with it.
That sounds a lot more noble than me trying to change my map settings during the pre-race countdown..
Apologies to GTsail for coming across the track after my spin. I thought I could make it to the far side of the track before you came by, but I was wrong. I'm fortunate I came off worse there.
I had planned on keeping this thing going for a while, just swap a new car into the OP, reset the points and call it a new season. But with the ongoing connection problems (I was in 3 races this past weekend and each one had terminal problems for somebody) and general poor attendance (some people registered but never showed up to one race) I'll be closing things down after this weekend. I appreciate those who made an effort to show up regularly and hope to see you all on track this week and into the future.
Well done Brandon and thanks, only wish i could have made more events.
Im sure ill be seeing you around
Now, the bigger task in-hand is getting PD to pull their finger out!
Your efforts are greatly appreciated. It is a shame that people signed up and were never heard from again. But please don't give up.
I had a room open for a while last night and is it just me, or are your headlights always on at Nurburgring? Even when the clock said 2pm track time, there were definitely reflections from headlights in the barriers.
Unfortunately, I'm one of those who didn't show after signing up and I do feel bad about it. Obviously, this was a good bit of effort on your part and I didn't do my part and show up. There were many things that happened over the course of the season. What started as enthusiasm was interfered with by outside forces (family, illness, career) and that pulled me out of my rhythm to sign on every day and practice, then it led to my not signing on at all and eventually forgetting, until hours after the planned race, that there was a race at all. Obviously, I'm responsible for signing up and I do apologize for not holding up my end of the bargain. I'm relatively upset that I didn't get to take part in, what looked like, a very fun series of races. I hope that you'll not get too disheartened and do something similar in the future and, perhaps, I might be able to join and race with you guys.
No hard feelings but you did a great job in illustrating why I don't like doing points series. Stuff happens that interferes with racing, it happens to all of us, so having a firm registration list where you're expecting a select number of people to show up regularly doesn't always work well. We all have the best intentions but by the time the season starts usually at least a couple people discover they can't attend. But they don't always let me know so I can't remove them to recruit more drivers and we end up with permanent empty spots on the grid.
I don't harbor any ill will about it, I knew going into this that it was likely to go down this way. Combined with the tire/pit bugs, connection issues and the general lack of enthusiasm for GT6 right now I just don't think this format is the way to go at the moment. I still have a strong desire to race and the issues with the game haven't gotten me too down on it (yet) but I'm certainly going to change my approach. IMO the best thing to do for now is something casual with no points, no commitments and no registration list that has multiple races per night so people can come and go as their schedules permit. I hope to have something up and running in a few weeks. And at this point I've all but given up on these mythical "community features" we were promised but that doesn't mean we can't find ways to have fun with cars on tracks.
No worries, it didn't cause me to lose the back of the leading pack's draft.
I lost the pack's draft thru my own driving maneuvers. I lit up my tires coming out of Arnage and speered across the track and smacked the right-side armco.
This gave me some right-front suspension damage which caused me to be slow for about 15 seconds (until my on-board pit-crew was able to fix it).
After this, I was in cruise mode for the rest of the race, waving to the race-fans, and just generally having a smooth and un-eventful race the rest of the way.
The last race of the series is still on for tonight I presume?
It's been a good run, thanks for all the hard work Brandon, and to your hard-working data entry/pic hosting elfs.
See you all on GT7, maybe.
UPD: Congrats, Saga!
