I thought I was going to miss this one. Didn’t realize there was an off week! I’m out of town the 20th, so this is a nice surprise.

My sessions have been a little on the caliente side of things, apologies for that. I try to base them off of abient temperatures i experience throughout the week, but, as well all know, the race sessions can be quite variable.

Leave the heat alone Ted. If you get the car working in the heat, it'll work just as well or better when it's cool. The reverse is not always the case.

I just wish iRacing would fix the dynamic track. Rubbered in tracks are not usually slower than green ones. They can be for sure in the right conditions, but as a rule, the track should gain time as it rubbers in, not lose it.

Thank you again for hosting!

Well, if someone have the replay i'll take it, anyway... first of all sorry to jeromef1 , since i didn't look at the replay i am not sure... from onboard i felt really surprise like you braked really earlier than usual but anyway, that's my bumper... my fault... just want to look at the replay, and protest if necessary... feel bad for you.
And that's not all... i think i hit Luiz Palm JR, , i don't know if he's here, i want to apologized for that also... felt there was a collission box but i do not have the replay and again... my fault...

I am really not proud of my race, i know it won't give you another chance to do your race, but i am sincerely sorry.

And if that wasn't enough... My sound crashed and it became robotic , noisy don't know what the fuck was that... if someone have a clue i will appreciate...

So shitty evening yeah!

Hard fought battle. I knew Don was going to smoke us. Congrats to the podium!

Tough being on the receiving end of that 3 way duel, but big props to Rafael and Thomas. That was about as clean as you can get it.

Absolutely killed the left side tires. I didn't really think that would be a big issue after practice but obviously I was wrong. Caught some good breaks in traffic and some bad ones. The bad ones were at the end. Sucks losing the podium with a lap and a half to go but those tires were garbage.

Eh, I'll take P4 and the bonus point for 1X and move on along to Road Atlanta. Really just glad to get a top 5 out of this as the times in qualifying were extremely tight behind Don, who had us all covered today.

EDIT 1: @ James ^^^ - It happens to us all man. I've had a lot of bad races and I took them way too seriously. I know it sucks when you get into it with someone else and nothing is going to make that up, but try to take it in stride and come back strong at Road Atlanta.

EDIT 2: I swear to God, I'm deleting Discord. I knew if I got that damn thing I'd never see the podium again!

lafcam93 all good, s**t happened. Just sad because I did a fantastic qualification, wasn't expecting to start P8, but I think I had that pace today. Maybe a brake a little bit early than usual but not that much. Every time I was around someone at this corner, I was always braking earlier... that's the part of the track where I was struggling the most. Also, I was taking it easy because they were almost 3-wide at some point in front of me so I didn't want to be in trouble.

Anyway, maybe my qualifying pace was P8, but it's sure that you guys are faster then me and I usually qualify P12-14.

Orange zone will take care of our incident anyway :)

Move on to Road Atlanta which might be my worst race of the season lol

Congrats on the win Don

Lovely battle at the end with Mr. Ross. Could tell you were struggling with the tires and ill join you with that mine went down to 60% at the end I was pushing so hard. Really thought it would have come earlier in the race but I kept getting dropped back when losing time being passed by the LMP2's but they did all that they could and I thank the LMP2's for some of the cleanest and safest overtakes.

Mr. Russo really hoped we could have made it interesting with a nice little fight after we passed Michael but unfortunately, I didn't have much left in the tank to get you, So congrats on the P2.

Was an amazing race from my POV and looking forward to moving onto Road Atlanta to start it all again.

Finally finally was able to start a race on pole, which was probably the big part of the gap I was able to pull.

Having a blast with this series so want to give a big thanks to all the series organizers, as well as the lmp2 drivers, traffic management has been a breeze nearly every round!

Congrats to the other podium finishers in both classes.
