Thanks Alex!

I'm excited for the new season, especially to race Laguna in the mp4.  ;D

Laguna Seca - bleck, not sure I will ever like it. Too many straight sections
Indy - I liked Daytona this time, maybe I will like Indy now...
Okayama Full - I like this one, but I think the extra section on the full course is hard.
Sebring - Barely know it but really like it.
Brands Hatch - Love it, weird track
Watkins Glen - Classic Boot - Growing a little tired of WG, but it is still cool, especially T1
Mid-Ohio - Love it "chaos section"
Road America - Feel about same as Laguna Seca on this one.
Phillip Island - No idea
Suzuka - Awesome
Road Atlanta -  Awesome
Spa - Not loving this one, but with more practice maybe I will

Laguna Seca - I love this course in any car. It'll be interesting to race it in the mp4.
Indy - I don't mind it.
Okayama Full - Should be a blast!
Sebring - Super fun, really awkward and hard though.
Brands Hatch - it's okay, but I'm not a fan. don't like turn 1.
Watkins Glen - one of my most favorite races, has a great feel.
Mid-Ohio - another favorite
Road America - I like it, but don' t know it as well as I'd like.
Phillip Island - it's got some fast sweeping turns, so probably lots of fun in the mp4
Suzuka - I love the course! just not in the mp4  :o
Road Atlanta -  yep, Awesome
Spa - My most favorite track!

Season 2 looks great!
I will just have try my best and drive as fast as I can. - Kimi Raikkonen.

Since we are in week 13 this week, I will put up a hosted race in the open lobbies on Wed.

Going with the McLaren, Radical, and ??. (Let me know what you want to run!)

Track-- undetermined. What do you guys want to run? Should be something popular so we can attract a crowd.  8)

Damn it Randy!!! I didn't realize the Kia was coming out today. I was sure I was going to run the Radical Wed., now I may have to change my mind. Always love running new cars.

That is the 1 thing I would change about iRacing is being able to switch cars in a session. I understand why it is this way, but it would be sweet to be able to run all eligible cars in a session.

Scot, there will be an event at our normal time, it just will not count as a series race. We will be on!!!!

Only thing about that is everyone will need it to join... unless that requirement has changed. (Not true for official series but is for hosted...)

I'll buy it.

You have already cost me $1000's Alex, I don't think another $15 is going to matter. ;)

Do you guys have Momo wheel rims yet? ;)

Anyway, I have an appointment at 430, so I might be a bit late today but barring any disaster will make it. I am doing the lengthy update now so I'll have a better chance of getting in. I see the Kia in the update but is it for sale yet?
