This is for that special someone (you know who you are) that thought it was ok to put people into the wall.. Remember this is not NASCAR.

1. How was your pre-season race? Are you ready to start the season!?
I did not get the result I wanted since I felt like I had a tiny bit of pace at the track, but it was a good experience and I learned some more things about my car and how to try and dodge Bubba's car in the future (turtle shell!!). I am looking forward to the season starting. I just want to keep myself in the Top 10 all season long, and see if I can't sniff out a Top 5 maybe once this season.

2. Which car did you select for this championship and why have you selected it?
Sticking with the RUF since I am a huge Porsche guy. I really do love the car, just still adjusting myself and trying to improve my craft on circuit racing.

3. What are your thoughts on Road America?
First time ever turning laps here. I dig it, pretty fun course. I am having corner exit issues at the moment trying to push a little too hard, but still have plenty of time to throw down some practice laps and get dialed in for Tuesday.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]1. How was your pre-season race? Are you ready to start the season!?[/font]
I really enjoyed the preseason race. I had a blast racing against mats. Unfortunately I got taken out of contention for a podium, but already matched my best finish last season. I think I'm more than ready to get going this season, and can't wait for Tuesday!

I went with the BMW Z4 GT3. It felt the most comfortable to me I'm testing, and the preseason race cemented my choice for sure. It has a good balance of handling and speed, plus the engine noise is magical.

Road America is probably my best track on the schedule. I've done so many laps here in a number of different cars. The amount of straights and corners make it great for passing. Plus the races normally come close on strategy, and eats up tires. My teammate and I have been working on strategy, and we will see if we can pull it off on Tuesday!

It was fantastic. I'm ready to start the season.

2. Which car did you select for this championship and why have you selected it?
Ruf. Because I love the sound and the handling!

3. What are your thoughts on Road America?
It's a great track, the main straight is unique and a powerful engine makes the difference.

1. How was your pre-season race? Are you ready to start the season!?
My preseason race went better than I thought. I made a few mistakes like forgetting to turn on "change tires" so I had to make 2 pits and later having a dispute with my own teammate in the end which made my race even bumpier than the track. I'm excited for the new season to start and I hope all arguments and problems have been solved in the preseason race.
2. Which car did you select for this championship and why have you selected it?
I selected the McLaren MP4-12C GT3 for this championship. It is a fast; stable car and has handling similar to a Ferrari in which I like a lot. Who can turn down those beautiful curves too?
3. What are your thoughts on Road America?
It's a fast flowing track that goes to slow tricky corners. One of my favorite tracks in the world and it's easy to see why. I can't wait to race on this track with you guys. It's gonna be a good one for sure.

1. Missed the preseason race
2. I selected the Cadillac CTS. Why? Because I love American Cars and I like the handling the car offers. Could have I drove something else, Yes and wouldn't had a problem with it. I also wanted to be unique as far as I remember I might be the only one in an American model in the league.

3. I enjoy the track. long straights and tricky corners

Q: 9th
Was an ok lap for since I was still not pushing to the edge. Would have prefered to get a few spots higher to avoid turn 1 fun.

R: 6th
Best PRL points finish in ProjCars, so I am pretty happy, especially since I had to overcome some adversity to get there. Got tagged from behind on L3, but luckily that was in turn 1 so I just went into the gravel without too much damage. Worked my way back up to 7th, then on L8 I got tagged again, but this time in T2 and I ate some wall. Pitted the next lap a little earlier than I wanted too, but luckily my tire wear was not as bad as some was reporting. Completed the race on that 1 stop, made a couple overtakes and took advantage of the tire situation. I only had 1 driver error off, and it was not a full spin, so I am finally happy with one of my race performances lol

And better results will come! Congratulations for your 6th place and the points for Cromo Ramrod Racing Team :)
