Had to work late today. I’m going to try to get home in time but I’m not sure if I will. If you can fill the spot it’s all yours. Maybe I can at least make the second race if no one else gets the spot.

Looks like I will make it due to massive rainout. Should be interesting since I can't get on until 8:30pm for minimal practice...just a grid filler tonight ;)

What's your status Sand? If Qualifying starts, just jump in and get a few laps. If later than that, join us for Race 2. Starting Qualifying in 5 minutes

Just wanted to say, great racing to every single driver on the grid. For such a technical and challenging track, the racing was extremely competitive, challenging, and overall very clean.

Glad to have @LSGtheSkyChef on the grid for his 1st event with the series, and thanks to @Fudman420 for standing in for the NGT Motorsport team effort....and Lastly, Congratulations to @MikeGrove on an epic drive with some exceptional pace for this event. A very well deserved overall win for this event. Great drDriving.

The Post Race Report, scoring, and all the included extras will be posted later in the week. Have a great weekend fellas and see you all at our next event.

Such a tough series. First race I make a mistake in back to back corners and 4 or 5 guys passed me. From 5th to 10 in the blink of an eye. Don't love losing so many spots but having such close racing is just great. Thank you @llNovall for all the hard work organizing these great events!
Great racing Fudman420. I was feeling that same defeat in Race 2....Racing for everything I could at my personal limits and still sliding down positions in the field..and that was without any major mistakes. Just simply was getting beat. But, that's racing and I feel this series has achieved what it was designed for....a challenge to every skill level of driver. The following and commitment from everyone for these series and the great efforts to maintain clean respectful racing in this group make it worth the effort. Thanks for the appreciation, and to all the drivers of this and the Michelin series that have made them what they are.

Again, great racing and looking forward to our next event on the 19th in the Michelin series. :cheers:

Post Race Report
Event #3
at Kyoto DP Y+M
November 5th, 2021
Sorry fellas for falling behind on these post race reports and scoring...but anyway, here it is.
Kyoto, in it's largest form, delivered on the racing we were expecting. Long and enduring battles, across the entire field, across both races, and between drivers of all different skillsets. I think I raced as hard as I ever have, just to get a 10th place result. Simply put, I was just outpaced and out raced....but, the racing for my 10th place finish was still as satisfying as if it were for a podium. Epic battles and pressure at all times. Too many instances to point out...watch the replays. 😉 Great racing.

Have a look at the replays or broadcasts when they become available to see just how intense these races were, and feel free to share your perspective if you'd like.


Congratulations to our Event #3 Winner
@MikeGrove

When will the broadcast be ready from last race :)
I have race 1 ready:


This is a fun watch especially the last 6-7 laps to the finish line. The races for 1st, 3rd, and 5th were photo finishes at the line.
Shout out to @Harry Rowley for some great car placement and defense against an attacking, patient, and clean @MikeGrove. Great battles for this event. :cheers:

Hoping to get to Race 2 this week and both races from Event #5 of the Michelin series.

@Clean Racer of the Wright Motorsports team confirmed to race our last event, but failed to appear or report absent. Therefore, his primary roster status has been forfeited, and he has been placed on the Reserve roster.
*If no one is interested or accepts the open primary grid spot by Thursday, Dec 2nd, the open spot will default back to CleanRacer.
