    They have their own strengths, which is nice to see :)
    Before that happened I had a Porsche 919 battle me for the win the whole race (his qualifying was less than 1/10th of a second away from mine)

    Oh this was way beyond prime time, I was pretty much seal clubbing. 1:17s are common here, and the upper half of the Top 10 is 1:16. Or maybe those times are different from American times as well?

    Ha, the man qualifies at 1:17 and doesn't think himself an alien. :lol:

    I've had a good weekend. 2 fast laps at Tokyo both with a 2nd place finish and clean race bonus. I got 2 seconds and a third at Blue Moon mainly on fuel strategy. The highlight was winning at Blue Moon in an NSX and getting fast lap. All my work paid off as my SR went from low B on friday to S late last night.

    Now things get back to normal chasing all those aliens.

    Haha, I like to think of myself as a cut above the rest, but definitely not an alien. Just here in GTP you can already see a whole different breed of racers :lol:

    I’d call myself an astronaut. I want to be with the aliens... but I have to narrow down the scope, so I can be right bellow them. I don’t play cars or tracks that I don’t like. It would be too frustrating. I’m already at the limit of time I can dedicate to this...

    I feel you man. I can only play competitively on select tracks and classes. Anything else and I'm just as good as a B rank driver
    Astronaut sounds likea good term :D Mind if I call myself one? I did this 5 minutes ago if you want some proof :p

    Sure!

    Nice! Last Gr. Race at Nurb GP I got 7th in leaderboard by the end of the day. It was awesome! I posted the lap and a race here somewhere. Maybe 2 pages back.

    Gettng a Top 10 time during the first 5 hours is one thing, but getting into the Top 10 by the end of the day is exhilarating!
    I think I saw that post as well, pretty darn fast I must say!

    Ugh, I was one race away from it and a Brazilian with poop connection quality bumped me, it wasn't intentional but ugh! What a bummer.

    I didn't even bother with that anymore, since I figured my DR would take a big hit if I accomplished that. Kudos to your dedication :cheers:

    I've won 9 races in GTS, but I think my best ever race happened last night with the Bugatti Gr4 nations race, and I didn't even win

    Started 18th out of 18 and I finished 5th. 13 positions gained!

    I passed 4 cars in the second turn on the first lap :lol: it was crazy haha

    Also a nice surprise was the diversity in the field.
    edit: Pic is hard to see but only 1 duplicate car in the top 12. AMG, m6, mazda, 911, lancer, vantage, 458, Z4, mustang, R8, AMG, lexus.

    Did a little smug face after the Parabolica knowing I'd nailed all the chicanes and was on for a 55. Didn't fully expect to be this high up however. PS_Messages_20180226_170332.jpg

    I finally made it to DR:A a couple of days a go. Been on the brink for about two months, so pleased to finally get across the line.

    I had my toughest victory yet, a hard fought battle for first place, a real nail biter

    Clean race bonus as well, I think I cracked the new penalty system!

    For some reason my DR remained unchanged after the race :p

    I'm so confused. Were you the only one in that race?

    As already stated in another thread, I've opened up 2 other accounts to play in other regions.
    Managed a 2:00.3xx qualifying on the Canadian id @Alsace. Granted, I'm E/A but was pitted against mainly B's, a few A's and the token S guy.
    Pole, fastest lap and win.
    Smug mode enabled! :D

    That 86 was a pain.
