        Couldn't let you beat me after the previous race. Surprised that you didn't have the pace to catch up to me after I had damage from L1 T2 but you must have been in loads of battles of your own. On to Road America for the last round of the season.

        If I didn't Quali 23rd (offtrack both laps) and have 2 1/2 spins you would have had a good battle with me.

        How was the show? Was iRacing represented well to the public?

        show was quite good lots of lovely cars to look at etc. iRacing stand always busy with lots of people having a go. Paul, Will and the iRacing staff on hand did a great job. Be good if in later years they actually had a bit of sim area - definitely a market for it.

        even got a 9th in fairly decent GT3 race :) - amazing what turning up to some academy sessions will do (if only I'd been able to do that more in the F1 ;) ). Can finally stop running the KIA for irating !

        Yes, the Academy's concept works, if it's correctly used. :)

        to be honest not sure but it popped up in the iracing facebook page about them making some changes then pointing to the website (I wasnt sure what it was before to note what the changes might be)

      On its way to a dead end series - not sure what they were thinking. Unless, well now a link with Audi so lmp1 in future....#falsehype

        announcement number 2 is next week. I bet they have a few Audi cars lined up that will climax with the LMP1.

        I dont know what they will do with this car but it will just thin an already stretched membership out. Unless they bring in more cars with it, it will be forgotten about in 6 months. Without sounding to ungrateful this was a bit of a let down, have the classic cars they did in the past been really successful? I dont think so.

      Should be getting the early practice laps in in the F1 but the HPD and Le Mans is just too much fun right now :)

        have you a setup to share? :D i'm nearly 3.5 secs off from you lol

        just using the iracing Le Mans setup (minus fuel though) - its a pretty good baseline to be honest. Might need some tweaks to get the front to turn more on the slower off-throttle corners so might want to lower the diff preload a bit I think

        Thank you for the tip David. I'm using the iR LM setup as well, but i have some problems in slow corners indeed, way too much understeer. i will try to work on the diff, thank you again sir.

      Grrrr - stupid mistake that cost me getting 11th maybe top 10 and missed out on braking the 1,000 points target I set myself for the F1 :(
