THOUGHTS AND COMMENTS
Another great race! There were battles start to finish. Some lasted the entire race. Even the Sports - Proto class proved to be exciting, with a new resurgence of drivers, new cars, and the biggest grid the class has seen since Daytona. Setup went great as well. Race was on time and had no major issues from a technical standpoint. The fact that it only ran 5 minutes past the targeted end time of 8 PM is pretty great considering all the problems we’ve had in the past. Very clean driving as well, for the most part. Only having two cautions on this track is pretty remarkable. Especially considering we were racing this close. Only small critique were some people issues which have already been discussed appropriately.
Also some of y’all made post race summaries, which I’m posting below.
And now for the first time, we go to
desu desu land Japan! Suzuka is next on the calendar. It’s been a long time since we have raced there. A very long time. Since Forza 4, actually. I personally love this track, so I’m really excited to see how these cars will run on it. We’ll have the possibility of a rain race too, so look for that in the voting so we can vote for real world conditions with the hope of rain only to race in the day for like the fifth time in a row. The voting thread for the date will be up very soon. Time options will still be very limited, what with RRIPA and NASCAR series currently ongoing on r/redditracing. BoP may or may not be changed very much. Not sure what all will change. Expecting something similar to Maple Valley because handling track but I don’t really know yet. Either way, BoP will be done a week before the next round at the latest. In addition, I’m going to be partially removing some cars from the BoP list for this round going forward. Any cars that have been rarely or never raced will not be BoP’d and put on a build-by-request status. They are still eligible, but you’ll need to tell me ahead of time if you want to drive it. This is just so I’m not killing myself over BoP anymore, especially with school starting up again soon. The voting for the first community choice race is also in the next sign up, so keep an eye out for that.
Well past the halfway point now, and only 5 races to go. I have a feeling from here on out, the battles will only get better and better. See you at the next race!
