Okay, I've got the track installed but it's not the Nissan GTR's.

Ok, John. Thx, and I'll start practicing!

Much fun at Road America!

It turns out that the Radicals in a street track lead to a bit O' bumping around. Really fun to work the fishtail action, if you run a lower wing settings. ( I'm talking going from 7 to 6 ) I don't know if we had one heat that had everyone finish. Even still, I think a good time was had by all.

Next event. The Nissan GTR at the same track. Bigger cars, same sharp corners.

I wasn't able to work out a stable car with the Nissans and this track. Braking was just difficult. Sean's pointers helped, but we were already deep into the sprints to allow me to get confident with it. T1 seemed "difficult" to remember , it seemed.

Well, the next track is one I decided on to be LESS brake intensive and have room to pass and straights long enough to stretch out on. It's not new or fancy, but I think it will have good racing.

Mid Ohio Sports Car track.

The server is loaded up with the Radicals again.

Hi guys,

I meant to post about this earlier but didn't get a chance.

I started racing with this group on Sunday nights at 9:30 PM ET / 6:30 PM PT. They're a good group and are looking for more drivers and think this group would be very compatible :) .

They are starting a 10 race BTCC championship. More info here: https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php? ... usa.65086/
In racing, you can only lose time. You cannot "make-up" time.

We had three guys, last night. Then two showed up at 7pm, after we ran some REALLY short sprints. The question , now , is do we finish off with the Nissans or decide everyone is putting their time in the F1 winter qualifying at SRH ?

I have no problem loading up the Nissans, if the turn out is worth it. I also don't mind putting up Preseason F1 tracks. Which would you prefer ?

John, honestly, I'm going to be concentrating more on the new SRHF1 2020 mod now.

But it might be fun to continue with the Nissan fun races at the SRH Winter series tracks, starting with Magny Cours.
