Pre-Race Interview:

1- After racing on the skating rink in Germany, we head to everyones favorite country Canada, for Canadian Tire Motorsports Park!  With the race later in the day, grip levels look to be high for this race.  Do you prefer a slippery track, and finding the limits at each corner, or a high grip situation where you can chuck it in and have confidence the car will stick?

2- This track is a rollercoaster ride, with very little breaking and a fast lap.  With passing likely going to take several corners and some side by side racing to happen, where are you looking to set up your overtakes?

3- Lets all pretend for a moment we are real race-car drivers here.  There are 2 distinct types of drivers in motor-racing.  Those who pee in their race-suit, and those who don't.  Which side are you on, and how long would the race have to go before you inevitably join the wet side?

This is going to be interesting. The default iRacing set is pretty good. Very stable and easy to drive. I put down a 1:12:2xx in one of the official races with it. I’ll have to run a custom set to see how much I can improve. 

There is literally only 2 braking zones, that’s it. Turn 3 and turn five. Passing is going to be...interesting.

1 - Everyone prefers high grip when its available... its just how well you can deal when there is none. Its a fine line, but I think my pace doesn't really change all that much. I am slow regardless of track grip.

2 - I will set up the majority of my overtakes on the first two laps by using Turn 5 carnage.

3 - Pee all the way. How else do you triple stint at Daytona?

I'm a corner speed kind of guy (which is why I am having so much fun at this track). Thanks to Mr. Duval's help, I've been learning to deal with lower grip scenarios to adjust to a point and shoot style.

2- This track is a rollercoaster ride, with very little breaking and a fast lap. With passing likely going to take several corners and some side by side racing to happen, where are you looking to set up your overtakes?

If things go my way, I won't have to worry about passing anyone. Start at the front and check out :) Since that won't happen it will have to be a block pass into one of the sweepers. Passing at the hair pin is a big no no unless you like the wall. I've met Mr. Wall, he's a butthole.

3- Lets all pretend for a moment we are real race-car drivers here. There are 2 distinct types of drivers in motor-racing. Those who pee in their race-suit, and those who don't. Which side are you on, and how long would the race have to go before you inevitably join the wet side?

One must learn the skill of letting just a little out at a time so you are not sitting in a pee soaked puddle seat.

Unless you are Jefferson - the glitter acts as a urine diffuser that increases his gluteal crease downforce by a factor of 3.

I like it slippery wet, soaked... Wait are we talking about racing or.......

I don't care what Erik says, I'm passing on the hairpin.

Everyone knows you use Tyler's car on the grid prior to the race.

I knew there was something off about him.  Things are starting to make sense.

Slippery is OK in a car with a handbrake, otherwise give me that kung fu grip.

2- This track is a rollercoaster ride, with very little breaking and a fast lap.  With passing likely going to take several corners and some side by side racing to happen, where are you looking to set up your overtakes?

Apply pressure, wait for them to cook it wide into the hairpin or spin it coming out, carry on. If that doesn't work they are probably fast and consistent enough that I can't catch them anyway.

The way I sweat I really doubt having to pee would ever be a problem for me in a hot race car, but I'd just go. The real question is, what do you do when your tummy starts rumbling? :shock:

1. I like slippery grip

2. My overtakes will be everywhere and no where at the same time... white shadow

3. You always wait until your last lap in the car during an endurance event. That way it's still warm for the next guy. No one likes a cold hot tub!

Catheters are just for fun not function... jeez dont you know anything guys.

I definitely prefer a grippy track, as it means less risk of mistakes.

I love Mosport, I look forward to this race as I always do well here in Canada. Passing is incredibly difficult here, theres only one real chance and that is the long backstretch after the infamous tricky double-apex. You could make a move after the long downhill hairpin (Turn 2) but it's not the best spot.

Well if we were real racers and these incidents were real, I'm sure I'd be in the hospital after my incident @ Road Atlanta so it doesn't matter if I pissed my suit or not   :lol:

1) prefer grip, slip is nice on some corners but not for the whole track

2) I pass when I see the opportunity, more often than not that opportunity passes me by

3) who says I haven't?

This is possibly the worst track on iRacing for actual racing. It is a fun track to drive, a horrible track to race at. There are no passing zones. Can you pass, yes if you are much faster than someone, but you can not set someone up and make a pass, because there aren't any hard braking zones. Can someone please blow up this track before the race tonight and then we can go race Imola!

My apologies to Mark and Dany for taking you out with the spins. I’m still in disbelief that my race went down like that....
