    Time for some feed back for Series 8 fellas! For this series, we are goin to run 3 classes that we have run this past year to celebrate an awesome year of racing. If you have been here for a couple series, please leave feedback on which classes were your favorites.

    I would like to get the Old Jag back out for the Historic A Class.

    Any B class in which I can run a 458 is good for me! I also really liked the Low Powered Race Cars. That was fun.

    For C class I liked the Ultra Lite. Lotus (Lotii?) and Suzukis!

    This is NOT the schedule. Just my favs. Please leave a post with your input.
    And GT0–We are keeping the Formula GT idea for the next series. That’s gonna be fun!

    Ok Fellas, Here is what I’m thinking. Still a work in progress…….

    C Class–Ultra Lite Fight!! From Series 1
    Hp 197
    Kg 620
    Race Hard Tires
    Open to all Race Cars, Race Mods, and Concepts. No holds barred!

    B Class Spec. We have run many different Specs, thought we should shake it up a little and go with B class.
    ’07 Ferrari 430 Scuderia
    Hp 488 (stock)
    Kg 1350 (stock)
    MUST leave the power and weight alone. No, you cannot add power and limit it down.No, you may not lighten it and add ballast. The power and weight need to remain stock.
    All other tuning allowed, must change the color from its stock red.(So the pics look good!)
    Race Mediums
    Using the same car for the whole series. I don’t want everybody to have to tune a car every week.
    Up around that hp, we need tuning or it will get ugly!

    A Class Historic Race Cars from Series 3
    PP 600
    Race Softs
    ’70 and earlier Race Cars and Race Mods **No 2J. You knew it was coming!**
    Heavy Damage. Nobody wrecks these 20 million dollar beauties!

    So, C class from Series 1, B class to represent spec classes from 4 and 7, and A class from Series 3.
    Little bit of old, little bit different. And we will try to shake up the track selection a little bit this time. We haven’t even started working on that yet, lol.

    Thank you Morbid. Leaves 1 spot, and if pnasty gets his PS3 issue fixed, or zute pops up, we are out of room.

    I hope everyone becomes regulars. That would put us only a couple regulars away from splitting the lounges again.

    Just so you all know when to cry, I’ll be gone 4/29 and 5/20. There will be at least one other sunday in there I will be missing as well.

    And by “when to cry” of course I mean when I will be in attendance. 🙂

    Ok

    Sorry about bailing early in final race. I was crabbing with damage trying to stay out of the way.
    See you next week.

    We had a bit of a rough spot in B class, but overall for a full lounge, I think it went well.

    I was along for the ride in B class in turn one, Racecar and Madison sling-shotted past, plus there was a car in the right and left and behind going in the the braking zone.

    Carnage!

    This is how I saw it in my minds eye, the actual footage may be somewhat different.

    I got to witness some shunts in A class to.

    Lots of spins and cars entering back on the track from the grass and gravel. It’s hard in he heat of the moment, but please inform the group (if you have audio) that you are spun, stuck or re-entering the racing surface.

    And look for cars approacing give them room.

    Lastly I swear my 2nd set of tires were not as good as the first set, maybe GT5 is getting too realistic? Or a full lounge of 13 cars just has less grip than say 4 cars like we had on Sat.

    I need to up my game, I had a shot to catch Mudd for 3rd and now GTO is closing in. I could have tried to fend GTO off in the last few laps of A, but really didnt have much grip left and just would have ended up with a damaged car and the rest of the field whizzing by.
