I will be on a work trip this week and cannot make the race. Have fun Gents!

BTW, are there drop weeks? I need them :)

Benjamin would have to drop victories :lol:.
Drop Weeks (2?) is a really good idea to consider in future Series

I think it's more fitting to ride goats around than race on. Difficult to pass on and I can see this race being incident packed.

Are you eager to see and test the LMP1 on iRacing? Will you be competing in those cars?
Maybe....I tend to gravitate towards certain types of cars that fit my abilities. I have never raced the HPD but that doesn't mean I haven't driven it in some test sessions.

Are you going to watch the Superbowl or have you watched it? Pats or Eagles?


Nope...could careless about the fooseball. Fooseball is the debil.  :D

This is my first time at the track and I am not impressed overall.  The track seems a hair too tight for the GTE cars.  I believe lapped traffic will have a big effect on the race out come.  There are a few corners that flow well, followed by some stop and go, which IMO makes it difficult to find a rhythm.    

2 - Are you eager to see and test the LMP1 on iRacing? Will you be competing in those cars?

I am looking forward to the LMP1 cars.  I believe I need some more time on iRacing and my rig before I jump into competition with one.

3 - Are you going to watch the Superbowl or have you watched it? Pats or Eagles?

No plans to watch the Superbowl.

Seeing the criteria applied in the maneuver between Duval and me from this race I will not be careful anymore. At the minimum space that the car in front leaves me, I am going to put my car in, regardless of the consequences. At least that is the message they are giving. A ridiculous criterion. They had my replay and they see that the spotter warns me of the presence of the car when it's too late. They recognize that Duval does not apply Brake but only releases the accelerator, however the responsibility is of the two because I close my line. Really?? It's the curve of the spoon, I have to close. Duval did not even have the wheels put inside. My teammateCristian sanctioned opir a maneuver in which there was even contact and here not only there was contact but also takes me off track there is no penalty. RIDICULOUS! But no problem, from this race my behavior will be according to the message they give.

Never trust your spotter... By saying that you didn't hear your spotter means that you have not looked at your mirror. In real road racing, does they have a spotter? No. Spotter is only a tool provided by iracing and your mirror is your best tool, not the spotter.

Saying that you won't give room from now means to me that you can be a danger on track for other drivers. Stewards will be aware of that.

Please move on, it's just a game after all... After mutiple review, I think the stewards made the right call.

[font=Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif]I do not trust the spotter but it is a tool. It seems that the PRL regulation is merely decorative. The arguments are inconsistent to the images. I'm not going to be a danger to others, I'm just going to put the car in the minimum space given to me as is allowed by what I see. Have you seen the maneuver for which they sanction Cristian? And for this maneuver there is no sanction ?? I will not appeal, i will keep in mind the opinion of the stewars[/font]

You have issues with the race direction and stewards, and you thought the appropriate place to air those grievances is in this thread? You then go on to proclaim that you are going to put your car where you want and be damned with the consequences. In what world is this good sporting conduct?

You can't compare Christian situation to yours because it was a race start, and you must keep your line before start finish line.

If you want more explication, you must contact the stewards. Stop blowing up your frustration here please. Those kind of stuff must be done privatelyp not publicly...
