Cool beans. I’ll be there.
I would prefer some cooked beans.
@MBarry failed to confirm his attendance for Event #2 and forfeits the grid to you if still available and ready to race.
@MrDonovan, if Herimopp89 passes and can no longer race, you are up next.
Will get some practice laps in today just in case
Practice lobby up:
Good racing mate!
Once the Brazilian kindly got out of our way by binning it
Yeah that guy was racing very defensive for someone who didn't know the track.
Great racing with you. Hoping you get into the race tomorrow.
Barring any natural disasters (storms) I plan on being there is there a specific livery I need to use
There is, I'll send the link again in a pm. See you tonight.
Pre Race Report
RACE DAY IS HERE!!! Make those final tweeks and get those last minute practice laps in...tonight is expecting some very close racing.
Lap times being reported this week have everyone looking to be quite close...racing tactics, consistency, and no mistakes will be the difference.
Laguna Seca is expected to present a heavier challenge this week given the tighter confines and limited places to execute passes, and cross class traffic will become a factor throughout the night. All drivers are reminded to be patient when engaged with cross class cars, and to choose their passing zones wisely.
Drivers are asked to please review or refresh themselves with the following tabs in the first post:
Tab 1.7 Start Procedure (especially GS drivers)
Tab 4.2 Caution Process
**GS Drivers** Please be familiar with the start procedure for Multi-Class race start. Any questions, please ask.

Great night of racing last night. Cinderella story for me in the first race. Went from back of the pack at Blue Moon to race 1 win at Laguna. The Vantage really likes Laguna. In second race, I was worried that I'd carve my way to the front and get ballast as reward. My pride and competitiveness got the better of me though as I didn't care: I wanted podium. I had that all easily in my sights at mid race. So as I am not rushing things, a race erupts and I go from being poised in great position to getting overtaken down by several drivers. What's this? Sheee ite, I have to start pushing or I'm gonna have a pathetic finish. Had to 'settle' for fifth. I want to petition the race director regarding Nova's Vette. That led sled couldn't make a turn without grinding off half its front tread in the first race. I dogged him in the first race for some laps then put him down by 10 seconds. So I never expected after passing him early in the second race that he would flip the PTO switch and mow the whole pack down like a bush hog through winter wheat. Not to take away anything from all the other drivers. I'm sure that when I see the replays, there'll be several others that had incredible drives. Also, great job to the TCR guys for driving hard and maintaining lines. Small complaint: Roman's ass kept getting bigger!
The simple explanation is I'm fair in open air, but my pace is in the chase. I couldn't hit a 28 to save my life while out front, but after settling in and trying to chase you down, the pace starting coming in....but it was too late. You were already too far out, and I had GTR4MROD hunting me at that point.
Race 2 was all about chasing, and once onto that pack, I had to push. Times were very consistent in the low-mid 1:28's and little by little I started applying pressure and found the small openings.
It was some intense and very good racing, and I have to extend your compliments to the TCR field....very good racing in your class and situational awareness with cross class traffic.
Great racing to all drivers. Post race report, photos and replay broadcasts will be out in the next few days, but I will have the scoresheet out to everyone today.
Last night was a work out for sure! Excellent racing from everyone and man, those TCR cars seemed faster at Laguna then other tracks! Really had to work to pass everyone last night, not just GS cars.
I can’t wait for the next race
Event #2 at Laguna Seca Scores
Here are the scoring sheets:
Spoiler: Event #2 Scoring
Live scroing sheets:
Congratulations to our Event #2 Class Winners
GS Class Winner: @GTR4MROD
TCR Class Winner: @Herimopp89
A few quick notes:
@GTR4MROD and @llNovall were tied at 29 points, however the tiebreaker goes to the driver with the lowest combined total time over both races. The difference after 2 races totaling 80+ minutes of racing was 1.593 seconds in GTR4MROD's favor. Congratulations and some great battling.
@Herimopp89 secured a commanding victory in TCR Class with 30 points for the event with @Moby45 finishing with 26 points for 2nd place in class. Congratulations and glad to have you for your first event of the series.
Also noteworthy was how close the spread in fast lap times were in TCR for Race 2, and overall among both classes.
This should hold you fellas over until the formal post race report is posted. Great Racing
Fantastic racing last night. This was my first multi class race and was really curious to see how it would play out with traffic but it was better than I could have imagined and that’s all due to outstanding drivers. Credit to @llNovall for setting this series up and these stats are crazy! Awesome. Looking forward to the next race.
Thanks nova I had a blast
Congrats to the winners! If only I had held off GTR a couple laps more!! But I don’t think I had a consistent braking point into turn one ever. He deserved it.
And, as always, love the spreadsheets Nova.
Confirmed for next race
