    The first Repechage race from the recent Americas regional final is now live on the GT YouTube channel. This was my favourite race to call so hopefully you guys enjoy watching it!

    The only race I ran.

    Unfortunately they had to change cameras to show Igor crossing the line, which is more than fair, but you can imagine what Facu did to me. Me and Lima were side by side going into spoon on last lap (you can see that right before they cut to show Igor crossing the line, Facu a fair bit behind), he then just divebombs us wanting to go 3 wide there, which is impossible. I was on the outside, so I got pushed off the track, Facu got no penalty for pushing Lima into me, very frustrating.

    Had a problem in the start too. Facu and Kuntze went wide on turn 1, Kuntze then came back into the track without looking if someone was coming, he then hits me off track, i lose about 10 seconds on this terrible manouver. At least I had decent pace to recover (at that moment I had pretty much no experience on wheels). Shouldve qualified.

    Here I was thinking Z28 may have fluked his way to being a Nations World Finalist, only to learn that he was actually the fastest qualifier in the repecharge and made it through 100% legit.

    I really hope they sort this stuff out in Monaco because this is just a poor man's destruction derby :crazy:

    @Jimmy B Still not as good as watching GamerMuscle beat you around Donington in a Mazda MX-5 Cup Car :D

    I was wondering why Lester didn't make it through. Guess that's that mystery solved :scared: squeezed off track and penalized for it. Unless it was an incident a lap earlier.

    With that it would be nice if PD 'shared' these live races the same way replays are shared in the game. That way we could watch races in great detail, albeit without Jimmy on te mic.

    4WD cars on Big Willow are always fun. You can dip your toe into the dirt without completely ruining your lap which tactically widens the course creating a lot of fun passing opportunities that aren't there in other cars.

    Had no idea Broadbent was a member around here, and apparently has been longer than a lot of us.
    I'm no fan of how GT Sport feels but it's great they continue to push the FIA certified cup, for that alone I'll support them as the races are quite fun to watch.

    Just got around to watching the Block and Repechage races, and maaan, that first repechage! One of the best of those live events so far for me, such great entertainment! :)

    EDIT: @Jimmy B kudos for the commentary, and on you guys actually keeping up with this insanity! :D

    A strange and I feel bad decision to eliminate 18 drivers after a single race across the 3 regions.

    Even 2 races if they had qualified for the repechage seems too little for the 42 drivers who lost out that way.

    2/3 of the field got to run no more than 2 races.

    Given the effort to qualify of the drivers and the expense PD has went to deliver these finals which have been brilliantly presented. I can't understand why they wouldn't make sure these guys got a slightly greater chance to shine on the big stage.
