Results of 1900 UTC race:

My split:

The other split:

Basically a copy / paste from the iRacing forum, but anyway:

Grats to Jesse for the win in his split, very impressed! If you compare both results though, both me and Klaus were slightly quicker in our split. Of course Max and Jesse could have been fighting and slowing each other down, but nonetheless its cool.

Regarding the race, Klaus got a great start and pulled a small gap immediately while I followed. I kept well within his draft for a few laps until I outbraked myself in the hairpin (my least favourite corner on the whole track), and from then on I watched the gap grow slightly each lap as I failed to conserve the tyres like he managed. Close behind me in 3rd Matthias was featuring a lot in my mirrors till my pitstop, with me having to defend slightly a few times. I pitted earlier than Matthias, and looked after my tyres better in the 2nd stint, so us top 3 were all running very similar pace towards the end. Well done to Klaus though, superb pace and consistency and deserved the win.

Good luck to Hugo, Marcio, Aritan and any other LFSer's for the one in a few hours!
Wow, looks like Crozier had a nightmare!
Gratz Dave, good result.
I had good race, though looking at 1:30 am race, it sucked to have split, points-wise. I might do a re-run on sunday morning.
what license do i need for the v8 ? i curently dosen't have a steering wheel so i don't have iracing so i can't look my self
V8 is C license.

Yeah I think he was involved in a collision with 2 other cars in the few last or 2. Unlucky for him.

Thanks, yeah forgot you were in the same race, looks like you had a respectable result. I might do another one tomorrow, not sure if I'll be busy then, at least there are always 4 races to choose from!
Before all this pro talk completely takes over the thread (), here a few glimpses at the upcoming Mid-Ohio:
Attached images
I saw a post saying that it was now completely drivable. Shouldn't be too awful long now I would think.
The Mustang is going to be epic at Mid Ohio.
No reason they shouldn't model that bump, is there?

sure there is...
unless the bump is not there anymore!
After my destruction derby races a few weeks ago where the whole practice session was spent flipping the car through the air using a track defect, I will make it my mission to find this bump if it still exists.

In NR03 I used to take the Indy cars, bump up the grip to F1 feel, and drive across the ditch on the long straight of the old Le Mans circuit and watch the car flip.

Our most impressive tire model to date, giving racers more control and better feel for the road is coming soon along with improved aero models.

Quote :Many New Features on the Way in 2010

* Fixed Setup Racing

* Updated Transmission Model
* Updated Physical and Graphical Damage model
* Many more tracks and cars in the works including a street stock car and several tracks from around the globe

Sounds interesting...
Might have a third go when I get a 50% discount voucher AFTER the tyre update...
@Tristan, there's basically nothing they can add or improve so much to get me into paying what they're currently asking (w/o discounts), unless it's free beer Plus, for the classes I race in the tyre model is already more than satisfactory to me.

Quote from Danke :It sounds like iracers can expect some good releases this year.

Touch wood!
Hey guys, just done the promo thing :P

Was wondering what cars I should end up getting. 3 months of iRacing im sure I will get bored of the standard cars

Im tempted by the jetta, is it worth it?
The Jetta is shit (imho of course) very dull car and not looking that popular this season as far as i could tell. Get the Skippy, it's a no brainer.

I re-subbed up a couple of days ago after nearly a year out and I'm just loving racing the Skippy again. One of the best sim cars of all time.
I've made the mistake that I bought the Jetta, it's fun on some tracks, but yeah, get the Skippy instead.
Well I just bought the skippy, was interested in that car since inside sim racing rant about it being great.

But I guess I need to buy a few tracks now :P
Aye, well there's three days left of the VIR round so that might be worth a purchase. The next track you'll need to buy for the Skippy series is Brands.
I have the feeling this combo will be brilliant
Quote from adamlfs : im sure I will get bored of the standard cars

Don't be so sure. Once you get your SR up to 3.0 you have the Spec Racer which runs at mostly rookie tracks, Solstice isn't that bad and the same with the Legends, they are fun. And tbh unless you have money to burn, you should look at the schedule and work out which tracks are used the most as you go up the classes, then buy 6 pieces of content which equals 20% off I got the Skippy, Mazda and V8, with Sebring, Brands and Infineon to give me as much track coverage for most of the season.
Ah ok boothy, I will try to work out what I need. I mean im already at D class "CLASS D 3.54", and have driven the spec ford before.

I think I will stick with that and sometime later this week I will buy some tracks :P

And tbh, I hate the solstice.. bloody crap car lol, But ofc I had to use it to gain the class I have now
