    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.

    Was at the race track today, among all the Porsches, Vettes, BMWs, was one of these. I think the front brake disks are bigger then the wheels on my miata.

    Good Racing last night, I actually found my way to the podium. 1 more lap and Dragon would have been able to overtake me. Class C was a disaster I had a fast car but a bit edgy and I spun on my own accord a few times.

    I got some good starts just to have the orange and white team Creamsicle (racecar and Clip) looming in my mirrors, I just let them by in A class (for Position) or I would have crashed trying to hold them at bay.

    Overall, pretty good night of racing. Managed to stay off the beach, which helped alot. I made a couple of passes that may have been a little aggressive. I didn’t contact anybody, but they were in some really tight spaces and I should have been more patient.

    I think the night went fairly clean. On these short courses, we end up with alot of racers on different laps. I just want to remind everyone that if you are getting lapped, please yield to the racers in front of you on the lap count. You do not need to do any thing drastic, just move over and slow down a little bit and give some room.

    Now, on to Rte. 5!!

    That was probably the night of my LZracing career. I don’t think I have ever won 3 in a row but I will take it. I think over all it was pretty good last night considering how tight the course was. There was almost nowhere to pass until you hit the straight and then it was a draft assisted pass which was scary as you got near the first corner. I am happy to say I don’t care if I ever see that version of that track again.

    I really liked that track even if I didn’t do so well. Last corner *is* the track imho. Practicing on the next track was fun too. The first corner is murder.

    As far as lapped traffic goes, I prefer the iRacing style… which is that it is up to the passing car to make a safe pass. On the other side, lapped traffic should never purposely block or try to race the passing car (you have already lost that fight). Lapped traffic should hold their line and not create a dangerous situation for traffic coming from behind.

    Expecting a lapped car to pull off line or slow down is wrong imho. It is kind of like saying that if you are not winning your race is not important.

    For everyone, that all means being patient in sections of the track where it is not safe to pass. Just because you are lapping traffic should not mean you blow someone else’s race/battle.

    Just speaking in general, and in my opinion of course.

    Ok

    You are absolutely correct GT0, I didn’t mean for it to sound that way.

    Every single member is important to us, no matter where you finish.

    Most members will give a faster car room to pass, even when it is for position. I have seen it many times.
    It was to remind members not to “race” a car that is lapping you. I did not have any bad experiences, it was just a reminder as we get into these tracks where we have lapped traffic. On these 2 short courses we started with, I think everything has gone really well considering members on different laps with different pit strategies and heavy damage. There is a lot going on!

    And the first turn on Clubman Stage Rt.5 Reverse is going to be a killer every lap.

    After running some practice last night, this track is going to be a pain. Who picked all these anyway?
