Welcome to Season 2 of the OPC Racing Championship on GT Sport.

With a new car for us to race around 10 weeks of races. And a focus more geared towards driving ability, and management of tyres and fuel. It should be a fun series.

Fairly dramaless race for me, if you ignore spinning on the straight because I was too busy looking at who was in the pits. Only one accidental stop, even then it was only one lap early. Sixth best I can hope for.

I did wonder how you managed to go off on the straight! I saw it on the replay too and it looked like you fell alseep at the wheel.

well guys it's not my favourite track I usually end up trying to dig myself out of the sand.

qually 

It went as well as can be expected but must admit it was the first time ever that I dipped into the 1:16's so fifth I think it was.

 

The Race 

 

It started with v6 getting up along side me and hanging out around the first corner, and me hanging around corner two then gaining into corner three.

Then it was pretty boring up to the last lap where I had a slight off where ava was parked but managed to regain control and then just kept going, I then saw alot of dust around the last corner, I crossed the line in fourth then suddenly shot up to second thanks to a penalty by Ren and also a penalty that phoenix couldn't get rid of thanks phoenix your present is greatfully recieved.

What a drama that was. Thanks to @Renegadeextreme for extending the qualifications. To be honest I don't practice all that much in the week. So qualifying laps set me up. Good duels with @el-ve   and  @LordRoss again, I do enjoy our "battles" . Good work by our reserve @nizzo323. Not sure why a car was parked up but I went off track rubber necking and then again later by being over courteous to the race leaders. All in all a good race dispite everything.

Just done my first proper bit of practice for this weeks race. Think I'm a bit of the pace for this one. Race's 1&2 is where I hoping for a win. This week I will be happy with top 6.

 

I've got my heavy fuel lap down to a 2:27.8. And my low fuel lap down to a 2:25.9. With a race time of 27:26. But I'm not telling you if that's 1, 2, or 3 stops. Think in our lil mock practice race last week. Others were doing 26's on heavy fuel.

 

I still can't get all the car off the line quick. Think there's about a 10% chance of me being quick off the line. So like the first 2 races, I'm probably going to lose a position or two off the line.

Think I was in the low 2:30's last week race conditions.

 

Been watching videos on racing tips this week as I haven't been able to practice

 

Hopefully the daughter will stay asleep tonight and let me get a good session in

I've been told that nizzo is stepping in to take Divine's place for tomorrow's race. Will be interesting to see if at the end of the championship. Team Yellow's reserve driver has the most points in the team

Hi all.  

 

Some of you may have noticed l haven't been online much this week.

Unfortunately, l recently found out that l have a serious health issue, so most of my time has been spent in hospital.

I was discharged last night, giving me a brief time away from hospital, and had high hopes of racing tonight.

But sadly l have been called back in and will be staying overnight.

So l will be needing a replacement for tonight's race

 

That said, l will also need a replacement for next week's race as well.

And beyond that, l have no idea.  

 

So good luck to everyone in the upcoming races.

Keep it clean, and remember to relax.

Always remember, smooth is fast.
