1. Bannochbrae was a lot more fun than I initially thought it would be. The track offered unique challenges and I expected a certain "survival" aspect to the race, but what I didn't expect was how much I would enjoy it. I've never done a race on Project CARS like that before and I hope we get the chance to do more like it in the future. 
2. My goals for this season are somewhat complicated. Since this is my first full-season in the PRL Project CARS league I should be focused on consistent finishes and doing the best I can to get acclimated. However, with my ESL experience in GT3 cars and the fact that I went on a 3 race win streak in the league last season after joining mid-way, my expectations have been elevated somewhat. Right now my focus is to grab a win at Zuhai, where I have a lot of laps, and then try to carry that momentum into Laguna Seca.
3. I decided to select the McLaren for this season because it is the GT3 car that I am most familiar with, but it was no easy decision. Last season I had a lot of success with the BMW Z4 and it is a very comfortable car for me. However I do like the feel of the mid-engined McLaren as it allows me to be aggressive on the brakes and is the favorite choice for many of the technical tracks that I prefer. Only time will tell if it was the right decision, but I do feel very comfortable so far.

I was surprised to see that much McLaren. Maybe they have updated it since PCars got released. I remembered that on PC, the BMW Z4 or the RUF was way faster than the McLaren. Glad if they have updated it because it's an awesome car! Good look and nice engine sound :)

They must have because it is the go-to car for the ESL tournaments most every weekend. People are either in the Aston Martin for the long straights or they hop in the McLaren for the twisty tracks. Some use the Z4 or the Ruf, but that's just for comfort because they aren't as quick.

Maybe it's different from PC to PS4 also... The RUF is the most used car I think on PC, well, from what I remembered :p
