I'll be racing Apex at that time but if you all are still going when the race is over I may join. Depends on how much energy I have left.

Definitely interested.
I plan on practicing tonight, but I’m not sure if I can make it by then.

Interest seems light. I'm going to run the Nation's Cup 8:40 slot and then will see who is online. If we have a few of us, I'll open up a practice lobby, or feel free to open and I'll join.

Internet started bugging out again so I've decided to call it a night. I need to figure out what's causing that to happen. As for the car itself, I think I made a lot of gains with the setup tonight but still work to be done. Balance feels good but I feel an overall lack of grip especially turning into the high-speed sweeping corners. Might just be a product of racing on a controller. :yuck:

Thank for the room and sorry for always being in the way. :boggled:

Great having you tonight, and glad you were able to get some track time in with some of us. Very competitive series....attacking while being attacked and alot of traffic. For the first time with us, you certainly held your own, and posted a 2:22.3 before lagging out. Great lap. Keep me posted if you are able to make the race event this upcoming Friday the 5th. If so, I'll forward the team livery to you. Hope you can make it.

Reserve Drivers Needed
for Event #3
Alright gents,
Other than @LSGtheSkyChef , all other primaries have confirmed their status for next Friday. 3 absences have been reported and we need Reserves.
@Rob Brown and @Bambi are confirmed tentative for Friday as Reserve entries leaving us with a need for at least 1 to 2 more, and even more if neither of them can make it. With a Reserve roster big enough to nearly fill its own gird, I'm hoping we can get enough Reserve drivers available to get to the full 16 car grid. We're at Kyoto DP Y+M. Big advantage in pace to the Gold Class drivers on RM, but certainly a track that required some seat time to be competitive. If available, please confirm. Grid priority will be based in the order of those who concretely confirm available for Friday's event. Tentative Reserves will be jumped until they confirm as available. Hope to see some familiar drivers back on the grid for Event #3

It's a ghost town up in here....where is everybody. Lets get this thread back up and active. Starting to worry that the Porsche series is starting to trail off...this is 2nd time around for this Event #3, and we're still struggling to get near a full grid. I get some are busy, and appreciate the communication from our Primary drivers, but our huge Reserve roster is failing us. I have a Reserve list big enough to create its own lobby, yet still struggling to fill this series' grid. Come on Gents, don't let Kyoto scare you away. We had some great racing here for Season 1, and our practice lobby this past Saturday night is sure to be a sign of the great racing to come.
Saturday's Practice Session

2 Reserves have confirmed tentative and I am still waiting for them to sure up their entry if able. Still need at least 1 more, and hope to have a backup or 2 ready if needed.

If you want off the Reserve roster and have no plans to race this series moving forward, please let me know so I can remove you and decide whether to open recruitment back up for some more new drivers. Hoping to see some familiar faces back into the mix.

Happy as I am with last minute reserve status due to time zones. However it’s unlikely I’ll be racing tonight due to a very busy saturday.

@llNovall, I would not count on my participation tomorrow evening unfortunately. I'll be out with a good friend of mine tomorrow afternoon celebrating his birthday & both of us finding work in the IndyCar paddock for 2022. No idea how long I'll be out of the house. Additionally, I have a full-time league commitment I need to practice for as well. Nobody does two hours around Mount Panorama on zero practice! :crazy:

Honestly that’s the only way I drive Mt Panorama…because every moment I spend on it is like stabbing my own eyes with a screwdriver.

I may be available tomorrow after all. Expecting a ton of rain tomorrow in my area which would compromise my work and allow me to race. I’ll know more as tomorrow progresses.
Hey Ice, with no reserves confirmed solid, your entry is reinstated. Hope you can make it.

Sorry couldn’t end up making the practice last week. Is anyone gonna have a practice lobby up tonight?
Would if I could. For to get ready for bed. 3am wake up comes up quick. Hopefully one of the guys will open one up, or feel free to open one. I'm sure a few would likely file in. Good luck, and see you tomorrow night.

Pre-Race Drivers Briefing
Event #3
at Kyoto Driving Park Y+M
November 5th, 2021

Finally, we're back in the Porsche's at the challenging Kyoto Driving Park-Y+M Circuit. Season 1 had some great battles, and as much and more are expected for tonight.
Many places to gain or lose time, and Gold Class drivers will be treated to a decent advantage with some many high speed corners. Defense will be a major factor for any Platinum Class Driver looking to finish in the top 5 tonight.
As usual, patience, minimal mistakes, and great lap consistency yields the best results.
Good luck to all drivers attending tonight.
A reminder to all drivers to be patient, especially in the opening laps and busy race traffic. Hold your lines and observe your opponent's corner rights when in close battles. Lets continue to uphold the standards that Snail is known for.
No specific areas of question.
2 wheels inside the white line on runoff areas, or on the red/white curbing at all times.
Screenshot_20211105-142827_Samsung Internet.jpg
Fuel should not become a factor for this event, but be mindful to adjust if necessary.


As a reminder to all drivers, please verify your weight, and apply any issued and required success ballast based on the chart HERE.

Also, drivers are reminded that this series implements a success ballast and class graduating structure. Be sure to secure as many points as you can, even if its towards the back side of the grid....They add up over the 2 races in the event night.
See Tab 2.3 in the first post if you haven't already for Success Ballast details.

Race Room opens for entry and warmup at 9pm est. Please verify you are on the correct tires and in the correct livery. All entries must be in before qualifying which is set to start at 9:15pm est.
(Primary Party Chat will be opened just before the room creation)


Please reply below or message me up to 9pm est if any Reserves would like to race. Livery will be sent to you.
