  1. Good turn out last night, and some great racing. I Was having a good battle with @marsh at Interlagos, until i picked up a few consecutive penalties for exceeding track limits, and mistakenly tried to scrub them during the race. Ended up costing me a lot more time than the actual penalties I had accumulated. Would have been better to just take the time penalty at the end of the race. 3rd place at Bathurst, was like a win for me around that track May have finished a bit closer to the top 2 if I hadn't over fueled by an extra lap. Super Formula race was as good as ever, crazy the speed you can carry through some of the corners, especially the series of corners from 6 to 10 at Autodromo Lago Maggiore. Was keeping up with the top 3 for first half, but a few messy laps put me out of touch, so I decided to try and pinch the fastest lap from @mexos which I just about managed on the penultimate lap.
  2. Looks like people were managing to cut the final chicane and not get a penalty!
  3. All the lap times had been deleted last night!
  4. I should be about tonight. Hopefully, the new track provides as much entertainment as Goodwood did last time out
  5. Use https://www.kudosprime.com/gts/stats.php?profile=search for finding out your previous weeks best times(plus some other useful stats). I was hoping that the official GT app would provide something similar, but it's pretty useless! Didn't get much time on the game last week, and I struggled to string a decent lap together around Suzuka. The online races I had weren't much fun either, and my SR rating has taken a beating, due to getting dive bombed off the track at the first corner. Hopefully I will be able put up a bit more of a challenge at Interlagos.
  6. Think I have a new favourite track. Minis were great fun, liftoff oversteering around the corners, and they seemed to have as much grip on the grass as they did on the asphalt F40 was a shock to the system after the minis, where you dare not touch the green stuff, and had to scrub a lot more speed before attempting to take the corner. I was lucky on the last lap to reap the benefits of everyone else going off track, as I did all my off road excursions in the previous laps. Over confidence got the better of me in the last race, as having built a few seconds lead, I set out to beat @marsh fastest lap, and ended up binning it instead on the penultimate lap! I Will leave fastest lap chasing to the time trails from now on
  7. The track limit penalties are a bit strict at La Sarthe, took me about 3 attempts to put a clean lap in! Should be able to knock a few seconds off my time, now I know what corners I need to keep well away from the edge on. Annoying that you need the Toyota Super Formula to take place in the Autopolis race, especially when apart from the badge, they are identical. Porsche 356 is quite fun around Brands, hadn't driven the car before, and it was a pleasant surprise. Need to keep your momentum through the corners, as it bogs down if you scrub too much speed. Once you get the hang of it, you can pull off some impressive four wheel slides.
  8. New Daily(weekly!) races are out. Porshce 356 around Brands indy Circuit, Gr3 at Circuit de la sarthe and Super Formulas around Autopolis. Looking forward to driving the Super Formulas again. Anyone racing tonight?
  9. Sounds good to me. Maybe have a play with the Super Formula around Barcelona too?
  10. Ooh close then, think my best was a 1:47.3 in the end.
  11. I wondered why you suddenly slowed down after taking the lead at Suzuka. Thought you was trying to replicate the reliability of the livery your car was wearing The Super Formula cars have a crazy amount of grip, but can bite if you get too greedy on the throttle, or a bit overzealous with the overtake button! Think they would make for a good championship. Forgot to save save the replays last night, so if anyone did and would like to share them, it would be appreciated.
  12. I should be about, looking forward to testing out the Super Formula!
  13. Sorry I didn't join in last night, I was absolutely shattered after a chaotic weekend and ended up having an early night. Hopefully I will be able to make it next week.
  14. I can vouch for the playseat challenge being a good investment, especially for keeping the other half happy Surprisingly stable, for what is in affect a glorified deck chair, and as Mexos said, it is a comfortable seating position that can be fully adjusted to suit.
  15. Guessed we would get one of the Japanese tracks when they announced the Super Formula update! Looking forward to testing it out with the new batch of cars. I had a quick blast around Bathurst last night, and managed to get within a second of@marsh time, can't see my bettering it anytime soon though. Made the mistake of entering the daily race, after I gave up on bettering my time, and it ended in disaster. I just cant string consistent laps together around Bathurst, didn't help that i was getting penalties galore due to other people knocking me into the barriers, I wont be rushing to enter the race again in a hurry. @mexostime trial sounds like a good idea whilst we are waiting to race. Any suggestions for car and track?
  16. Great to get back racing again. I thought the 350z was a very well balanced car, and a fun drive, although it probably would have been better suited to the indy track at Brands. Gr3 mini endurance race was fun as usual, although I ruined any chance of a victory after throwing the car off the track on the first lap, whilst tailgating @McSpeed (did the same in the Brands Hatch race too!) Was a decision ever made on what series of cars we would be running for the next championship?
  17. I hope it goes as well as it looks. It would be nice to see Mclaren back as a front running team again, and give Lando Norris a chance to show what he is capable off. I can see him producing the odd Podium or two this season, if the car is at least on par with the Red Bull.
  18. Monday is fine with me. Will tonight be the first Monday trial?
  19. I have had the same problem, the standard of driving in SR class S is not what you would expect it to be! The daily race at Fuji last night had some crazy stuff going on, people cutting corners and ramming people off the track like if it was a demolition derby. I gave up in the end and stuck to the TVR race at the Red bull ring, as that seemed to be a bit more civilized. Hopefully we can get everyone back to the Tuesday night forum races soon, as I am missing the clean, close racing.
  20. Tempted to buy Assetto Corsa for £12.99, especially now I have a wheel. Nearly bought it it on PC in the Steam sale, but having it on the PS4 would probably mean I play it more.
