I'm not going to be able to race today.
Good racing today folks, even with the limited field.
I had great fun, very close and hard fought tonight.
Looks like it will all come down to the last round then
Round 7 Results
We had a low attendance but good battles - the most important after all
I beat @amarynceos by .014 in my last qualifying lap and won the first place in the grid I had some very good laps during the races too, and managed to earn the point for fastest lap in both races.
However, my standing start is still terrible and I always lose my position after a few hundred meters
My first race was bad... I lost control in the very first lap and almost caused an accident with @Ray P 89 who almost had to stop to avoid me... Sorry about that @Ray P 89! We had some good fights then, while @hobbsy and @amarynceos were battling for the first place. @hobbsy eventually got it, while I finished last after another terrible mistake. @Ray P 89 had some laps about 1 second under the capped time though, leading to huge penalties!
We were only three drivers for the second race but it was close! Unfortunately, I it up when I bumped @amarynceos because I misjudged his braking distance, then I slightly bumped @hobbsy while overtaking... Not very clean, I deserved a 5 seconds penalty added to my time penalties for getting under the capped time on a few laps.
As we talked about all this with the people concerned, I already updated the overall standings. @amarynceos seems in good position to win the title, but @hobbsy will surely do everything possible to prevent it!
See you at Suzuka!
The realisation of the actual facts before me have now sunk in... (Along with a little mathematics!)
As I see it, the maximum points available from a race weekend is 33 (15 each race, and 1 pt for fastest time in each of the 3 sessions)
@amarynceos is 15pts ahead of me in the Championship, with his max champ points being fixed at 168 assuming I can take all possible points from the last round, this will then allow me to replace my weakest round of 19 pts, with the maximum of 33pts...
The maths bit... 33 - 19 =14,
Therefore it just leaves me to say,
Congratulations to our PTCC season 1 Champion... @amarynceos
Round 8 announcement
Even if we already know who is the winner of this first season, we'll have a last trip to Japan this Friday, for glory
Track: Suzuka East (25 laps)
Capped time: 0'53.500
See you for this last round before another exciting series!
Hey guys, did anyone have some testing at Suzuka? Does the capped time seem good?
I did some testing yesterday, managed to do a 53.550
I'm sure the time will be fine, however I've yet to turn a lap... I've saved a spot for tonight though.
However It's looking like I'll not be able to make the last race(s) The wife has been away all week, and returns tomorrow night around 9pm... Here's hoping she is either too tired to care, or Delayed by 4 hours!
There can be a battle for the 4th place between @Ray P 89 and @Cu3e, but the standings will not change for @amarynceos, you @hobbsy, and me. You won't miss much, but things might be fun at Suzuka for this last round!
I'm ready for tomorrow, 245hp only. Very fast in the corners but it will be hard to keep the position in the straight!
It is Midsummer Day in Finland and Nordic countries. Wife wants to go see bonfire. So I will unfortunately miss tonight's race.
Have fun and thanks for organizing this series @Tijee
If @amarynceos, @aruizb and @Ray P 89 can make it we'll be just four, otherwise I'll postpone to next Friday.
Round 8 Reminder
The final countdown
Here we are, the checkered flag of this first season of PTCC is in sight! Tonight will be the 8th and last round, in Japan!
The room will open around 21:45 GMT for the warm-up. The 5 minutes qualifying session will start at 22:15, followed by two races of 25 laps each. You will have a few minutes between the two races in case you need to adjust your setup. Don't be late, I will start on time (if ever you are late, you can still join the second race)!
Track: Suzuka East, dry
Capped time: 0'53.500
All available aero parts required
Number plate required
All aids allowed
Do not cut corners and avoid contact
See you guys on track!
My brake pedal issues, which I thought I had fixed, are back in full force. Looks like I have to unmount and disassemble my pedals to clean them more thoroughly, what a pain! I don't think I have the time needed to do that before the flag drops, so good luck!
Thanks hobbsy, was a close run thing!
OK @amarynceos, good luck with your pedal then...
@Ray P 89, @aruizb We're going to be only three, I think it would be better to postpone the race. Sorry about that!
I'm ok with postponing the race.
Hi there! I'll be able to start the race weekend sooner this Friday: 21:00GMT instead of 22:00GMT. Would it suit you guys? Let me know... Cheers!
I can't be there at 21:00, that's the hour I get out of work.
OK, I'll stick with 22:00GMT then.
@aruizb @Koempel @Ray P 89 @gkgamer @Cu3e @amarynceos @hobbsy @BooyakaDragon @lxmmy @FrankySmalls
Do you guys want to race tonight? Last round of this season of PTCC, then we might have a few weeks break (or unofficial/test races), then I'll start the GT4 Parity Cup.
Let me know about tonight
I can be there.
It depends on what time?
Same as usual, 22:00GMT
I can't turn up its too late
Hi guys, its been a busy week for me (work and home) so not really had opportunity to do any practice runs, I don't know if any of you guys get Hay fever, but I've been suffering quite badly these last two weeks, so this is not helping my enthusiasm.
If I can make it I will, but as of now please don't count on me being there. Sorry for the lack of commitment guys, It will return, I promise.
No problem @hobbsy, it's just a game. Get well soon!
If we race today, I can be there
Room is up.
What a final duel! It may have ended up just being me and @Tijee for most of the last race, but we had a cracking battle, swapping the lead back and forth, and finishing just over a half a second apart. I had a monster on the straightaway, he had a killer car through the esses, and it made for some fantastic racing. Best battle of the season, for me, and a good finish for the PTCC.
Now I can put my Peugeot to pasture, with over 1,700 miles on the clock for this series. o_O; It's been fun, but I'm so ready for some RWD action now.
