1.What are your Thoughts on last weeks wet race?

Great lots of fun, These cars are on rails even in the wet!!

2. Half way through the season how would you rate your performance? What can you do to improve?

Overall pretty good..I think i need to work on long run setup of the car i seem to run out of tires long before i need to pit. This makes me very unstable towards the middle of the race.

3. my list in order.....

1..Clio Cup
2..Austrailian V8 SuperCar
3..Formula Gulf 1000
4..Stock car (either one)
5..McLaren F-1 Long Tail

1.What are your after thoughts on last weeks wet race?

Rain was fun, not as slippery as I thought it would be, though. Maybe a thunderstorm race next time?

2.Half way through the season how would you rate your performance? What can you do to improve?

Only started two of the races, but I still need to work on my consistency. Too many off tracks. Also, pay more attention to my pit setup...

3.What cars would you like to race next season?

I'd love to try open wheel, preferably something slower like FC or F1000. V8 SuperCars sounds like a fun option. The Trans-Am Mustang is a pretty underrated car in my opinion and would also love to race that. 

Also, my first thoughts on Brno. Seems like this track is pretty hard on tires. Front left completely gone after 8.5 laps on softs. Considering trying out the hards. Anyone else?

The mediums work great.... Don't wear as fast as the softs and just a little less grip

Unfortunately there's only rains, softs and hards for the Bentley. Missing the inters and mediums. Also, there called "GT-1" tires, where as the BMW is "LMP 900." Could be a totally different tire model. Interesting.

1. What are your after thoughts on last weeks wet race?
Inspite of dropping out of qualifying, I a made a strong start, but failed to keep a rythim. Could have been better due to other dilemas.

2. Half way through the season, how would you rate your performance? What can you do to improve?
Piss poor. Since I'm on a bit of a learning curve, I need to remain patient with competitors.

3. What cars would you like to race next season?
No idea, but I did get this game mainly for tunning and good physics. So far the best that's come to console.

That's funny, I been using mediums all this time due to overheating. Oddly enough, the beemer is right under that limit for this track. I've been struggling with the detriment of speed with downforce.
That Audi leaves me in the dust in those high speed corners with what seems to be superior power. I may have a chance to shine in this one lol

Tire wear caused me to pit early and ended up not adding enough gas.  Had to pit again on last laps because I wasn't sure if the blinking gas light would last 2 laps. this stop cost me 2 spots but at least I didn't DNF. Last time I tried to push it I DNF'd due to out of gas.

1.What are your after thoughts on last weeks wet race?

A) Had a great race. Best finish I ever had in a league race.

2.Half way through the season how would you rate your performance? What can you do to improve?

A) I feel that I am improving. Even with flipping after only 3 laps at Spa I felt that I had a a good car for a possible 4th place
finish
B) Braking into the turn, getting on the gas sooner out of a turn and setting the car up. I feel that I have improved on setting
the car up though.

3.What cars would you like to race next season?

A) Group 5 cars (Capri Zackspeed, BMW320 turbo)
B) SCCA (Ford mustang cobra)
C) Clio cup would be interesting (on smaller tracks)
D) Australian super cars V8
