Sorry guys, don’t get upset. While I’d love running without ABS, Nova says “ain’t gonna happen”. But it still fun to recommend it. If I say it often enough, you’ll all eventually want it (subconsciously).
You’re getting very sleepy . . . when I count to 3, you’ll be overcome with the desire to sim race without assissies.
1 . . .
2 . . .
3 . . .
BOOM! Congratulations, you’re cured.

You know Rob speaks logic here. I agree with him.

If you guys wanna send some money for a loadcell pedal, I'm game.

That was fun 🙇
Thanks @llNovall and all drivers.
For me it‘s the perfect series. It‘s perfectly organized and the classes are well balanced, so a guy like me can compete with the really fast guys. That‘s what makes this series so special. :cheers:

Absolutely top notch photography :cheers:. Your capture and lighting style accents these cars perfectly. Very much appreciate the efforts. I will be adding these to the media section on the first page of the series thread.
And, I'm very glad to see the series has built up its own identity and following as something a bit different, but very challenging and fun at the same time for all skill levels. That was always the hope, and I'm happy to see that it has delivered.
Thanks again, and looking forward to our next race night.:cheers:

I would be quite happy if we never run that track ever again in this series. Lol

I can't begin to tell you how pissed off I was at myself for not being anywhere near race pace.

Hopefully next event at Spa I will come out with a good result. It is the track that got me shoved into Plat class after all. Haha.

I am not going to lie and say it was a fun night for me. I hated every bit of it. BUT! Take that with a grain of salt because it was NOT because of the series or anybody else. Pretty sure it was all me and constantly fighting understeer.

Look forward to SPA! Thanks for a good series Nova

Great shots Guido.

It's amazing that after 40 minutes this was the group fighting for 5th:

I've watched the replays a couple times because there was so much that happened. I feel like Nova was on defense for 80 minutes straight!

Again, great racing guys. I'm really looking forward to the rest of this season.

Great shots @RadStewart :cheers:. All photos will be added to the media page for Event #2.
And, 80 minutes of defense...that's no exaggeration 😨 I don't think there was any point where I was actively attacking all night. It was defending, or just trying to get back a position lost. It was a blast...and alot of amazing close quarter battles. Btw, nice patience and execution in Race 2:cheers:

Thanks! Genuinely went into these races with 0 confidence. I was struggling to find the pace in practice, but once the lights went out it came together.

Event #2
at Sainte Croix-B
August 28th, 2020

Event #2 at Sainte Croix-B...Wow. What an event it turned out to be. Quite simply, there were just too many battles to point out in text. Race 1 saw an intense and nearly full race battle for the midfield spots. Me personally, I felt as if I was on defense the entire race with @Xradkins, @MikeGrove, or @Roman_GT23 constantly on my heels. Race 2 were my attempts at keeping @nmcp1 at bay, and after he won that battle, I spent the remainder of this race fending off constant attack, finally yielding 2 more spots. These are just small glimpses into this race event from my perspective. Have a look at the shared replays or the replay broadcasts below to see the great racing and battles. Amazing on all fronts...attack, defense, etiquette,....all of the above. Great job to all drivers.

Congratulations to our Winner @nmcp1 and our top 3 overall:
1ST: @nmcp1
2ND: @Bologna_Duc
3RD: @MrDonovan

Ballast adjustments will be forthcoming, with a 2% weight ballast add for our winner, and a 1% weight ballast add for our 2nd and 3rd place finishers.

2nd order of business:

@GCimprezaFTW
Each have 1 event raced and are being offered the primary spot.

Thanks heaps once again Nova for the race report & data - I love a good spreadsheet 😁
Thanks everyone for a couple of intense and fantastic races!
Race 1 against @Yugofan was all about focus - dude was so close to me, every time I thought I’d made a gap he’d suddenly be back on my bumper again. Awesome, clean racing.
Race 2 was just intense. With Nova doing his best Rudolph impression and leading out a train of reindeer, I just couldn’t get a move to stick & paid the price for my impatience. Stoked I managed to get the fastest lap, but wish I’d done it from 5th rather than 11th...
I’m really happy I managed 3rd overall in my first Porsche comp, while also kicking myself for immediately copping ballast for round 3 😛

Going to put practice again in for the next Michelin & Porsche rounds, but unfortunately step 1 is sorting out a pedal issue - noticed before the race (and saw my brake lights flickering in the replay) that sometimes my brake’s coming on when I’m on straights. A clean out hasn’t fixed it, so need to pull the pedals apart again and see what I can do... Have also installed the GTEYE brake spring, which is going to take some getting used to.

Anyhoo, thanks everyone for the amazing induction into Porsche racing, I had a blast.
See you trackside :cheers:

Wright Motorsports is excited to announce a new principle sponsorship for our #45 car.

After a reasonably successful Event #2, technology giant Apple reached out to Wright Motorsports for a very special sponsorship deal. We're happy to introduce a modern re-creation of the infamous Dick Barbour Racing Porsche 935 K3, sponsored by Apple Computer.

When asked how he felt about the sponsorship change, driver heated_seats didn't mince words:

"Don’t upset the Apple Car."

See you at Spa, folks.
