    I think it’s just really popular with a small group of people. :)

    I always did too until I decided to finally learn it once and for all in a Race C one week with the Lancer. Now that I know the track well I love it(with N300 and lower :lol: ).

    I love the track but I don't like it as a time trial.. 5 min into a lap a full second ahead of your pace and a mistake costs a bunch of time not only in the lap but the time it takes to get back to that point to try and not make the mistake again.

    Second post updated with results.

    Interesting note. 3 of the last 6 weeks have been the 86 GT Limited. Someone at PDI must really like this car.

    As much as I tried, I just did not make up any ground on this event. What is the event this week? Race C is the one make. Is that the one we are using?

    Yes, the one make, so Race C this week.
    Just checked the website to see Race C is Nordschleife (@Rob Brown) but it doesn't say which car. Take the time to run at least two laps and over time, you will begin to improve.

    Yes, just make sure you have SNAILRACING__ORG (2 underscores) on your friends list. You will be listed as a guest (G).

    Actually he will be listed as Div 1 since he is on the current SNAIL drivers list.

    Lol. Not with me brother. I attempted it a few times. My time was so embarrassingly horrible I quit before crossing the line to make it “official”. Hopefully there is a nice one tomorrow.
    Thanks for keeping track of this @JamCar0ne. I do like participating when the combos are decent.

    Results update for the last two weeks as I forgot to post last week's.

    Welcome @Bass Addict to the SNAIL time trials. Note: it usually takes a week for GTS to figure out how to include your time on our friends list.

    :idea:I motion that the top 10, if in SNAIL and not already in division 1, be promoted to that division. :eek:
    All those opposed? :odd:
    Not hearing any objections, motion carries.:lol:
    Congratulations! See you speed demons in March!

    There is a big difference between putting together one great lap with unlimited tries (time trial) and putting together consecutive good laps with no do-overs (racing). I can say that sometimes you can get to the podium in D3 just by staying on the track for the whole race.

    Even in D1 it's the case that occasionally you could finish 4th every race and win or come in a close 2nd. At least back when I was competing.

    Oh! I didn't expect to win one of these! I sort of forgot about it, I've been very distracted with other stuff past couple years...

    Fun story, the Eunos got me FINALLY to 50% sport mode win rate! 180 races finished, 90 wins.

    Does anyone want to help out with keeping track of times and updates?
