Welcome everyone, to the Official PlayStation Community Racing Championship.

 

Season 2 was a long and hard fought championship. Right up until the final race. Now it's time for season 3. Where we change things up again. It's a short sprint over 5 weeks this time. With a smaller, and slower, but more fun car. With no need to worry about your tyre or fuel this time (all that will come in season 4 with the GT3 championship).

 

As with every OPC Racing event. It's open to drivers of all skill levels. Simply copy & paste the list below, and add your name to sign-up for the championship. If your not already on my PSN Friends List, then pop me a Friend Request once you've signed up.Once you've confirmed your entry. Customise the car in the colours of the team, and post pics in the thread.

 

Let's have a fun season.

A bit late in the day to give feedback I guess... But would it be worth having a look at two shorter sprint races a night for this shorter series, just to keep things closer between everybody by the end of the races? 🤔

 

Just putting it out there 😶

Sorry for late notice but I will be unavailable for 3 of the 5 series races, so am withdrawing my entry from Team Black. Real life calls the shots unfortunately.

In contrast, my next hospital appointment is on Friday.

This means I won't be going anywhere for a few days, and I'll be next to my console and wheel on race night for week 1.  

 

So if there happens to be an open spot, I'll see everyone on track.

It's race day. Opening race of this small (in more ways than one) championship.

 

I'm hoping we have a good sized grid this evening. Been hearing quite a few moans about the car and the reverse tracks. And we've lost a few drivers for tonight's race. Ah well. It just means more points for those that would usually be hovering around the lower positions. So capitalize when you can right.

 

A few tips for this evening's race?

 

Well firstly, and most importantly. Make sure you have the car. I know 3 people that don't have it yet. So........ 

As Tassie mentioned before. Slow in, fast out. There's a few key corners that means you carry all the speed, you've gained on a good exit, around half the track. So if you mess up that one corner, it could be costly.

Wide track, small car. Good brakes. Plenty of lines to take 

Have fun.

 

So the room opens at 8. The earlier you get in, the more practice and qualifying time you have. With race starting at 8:30.

 

I'll see you this evening.

Oh! I forgot to ask.

 

I wasn't planning on streaming the race. As I have been giving streaming a bit of a break the last few weeks. But if others not racing, want to watch from my perspective. Let me know, and I'll stream.

I'm awake.  

Heading in early for some warm-up laps.

 

I guess it should be safe if I go with a white paint scheme.

Yeah it was a good race. I ended up back down in 5th after a lil incident on lap 3. Put me around 4 seconds back. But managed to get it back to just under 2 seconds. The gap to you was hovering between 1.6 and 2.1 while I was battle with your teammate for 12 laps of the race. Couldn't get near my best lap times as we exchanged positions. Had a few unfair penalties to get rid of too.

 

The gap was down to under a second at the start of the last lap, which gave me hope. But I got caught on the wrong side of the road for turn 2-3. Which cost me and Evil a chunk of time. And then I left the door wide open on the inside of the long flat out right-hander.

 

A good 1-2 for team green.

I'll try again then :D

How'd you and up that far back at the start @smokey019? Not seen the start of the replay yet.

 

First part of my race was going pretty well. 

Had a moment where I made a mistake which allowed Tass, Ren and V6 to all catch up heading into the long downhill S bends... 

 

I didn't particularly want to be sandwiched here, but I had nowhere to go and still ahead :D

Ren on the left, Tass in the right, and V6 right on my bumper, so it turned more into.. "We'll I can't lift as I'm boxed in, so looks like we're doing this then" 😁

 

1st left, boom! Perfect! I managed to leave space both sides. All good, 4 cars through!

First right..... Nope.

 

Tass lifted slightly right on the apex I think, but I still had his nose just on my inside on turn in, so left room not wanting to slice right across him incase I catch some of it.

 

I made sure that I still stayed tighter to Tass on the right side though to insure leaving lots of room for Ren, and to get the spacing right for the next right/left, but somehow he managed to bump off me and then off the track .....and I got a penalty for it!

 

Looking at the replay he turned in across the track way more on the right hand section. Maybe didn't realise Tass was still hanging around on my inside or something, but I still gave a whole load of room on my left too. Being boxed in, I had the intention leaving enough space to be able to get all 4 of us through the whole lot :D

 

That took Ren out of the pack and I think V6 which spread us out a bit again and I got a bit of a run. Maybe Ren got a pen for the impact and corner cut too, not sure.

I found the pen that I got a bit out of order as I left room on both sides AND behind 😁. Sort those pens out PD 😜

 

Later while chasing Hayc, I made another small mistake exiting a corner allowing Tassie to close in again, and then myself and Tassie were taken out by two different glitches on the same incident! 😁🤦🏻‍♂️

 

I knew instantly that something wasn't right when it happened even without seeing the replay.

I held really tight on the kerb, and even lifted to let Tass go round the outside of me so I could draft later, but I had a solid thud that upset the car and squashed a wheel onto the grass putting me into a large tankslap. 

 

On Tass' screen, I bounce over a cone and land inside him, and he then tucks in behind me. On my screen he's on my left and his car squeezes and pushes me onto the grass (this was obviously Tass on his end just coming across to tuck in behind me) .  

It didn't feel right at the time so I was mumbling at PD for a while, and then replays confirmed it. Really odd.

 

 

Tass' view

 

After that a lonely race trying to catch Nac and V6.

I Got the 9 seconds down pretty quickly, but the last 2 seconds were difficult as they were drafting each other for a while. 

I got a bit of grass while giving an extra push as well and dropped back down to 4 seconds again. 

 

Finally managed to catch them going into the last corners of the last lap while they still had their ongoing little battle. 

 

I put a clean move on V6 going into the last corner, then got a bump up the back which pushed me wide, and then for whatever reason seemed to try to push me wide again from the inside... I gathered the car and still had enough drive to stay ahead I think, only to have what looked like another effort at it on the exit? but thankfully he just ghosted through me and hit the wall.  

No idea what was going on there 

Dunno if it was rage of losing out last corner, Simply losing grip and going off, or if it was a glitch on his end too?

It would actually be good to hear his side of what happened,... But he seems to have just dropped out 😶

 

 

 

There's been some strange ghosting/non ghosting going on since the last patch 

Thankfully, whatever it was that one seemed to work in my favour 😁

 

Personal thoughts, I think the track was a bit technical for the car. The track had a lot of tricky corners, and spaced out the gap between drivers over a long lap. Kinda feel like Mag.2 will be more of the same.

Would it be worth swapping that one out for bluemoon, or bluemoon infield? There might be more slipping involved and bring the guys lower down back into the action then?
