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.

I better update the points huh. Been out most of the day. And was also watching the FIA World Tour event live stream.

 

Apologies for dashing off after the race last night. Had things to do. Was busy before the race too. Only managed to get in 3 laps during qualifying.

 

Not too much to say about the race. Except sorry to @Tassie_tiger for the confusion when we came up to the back-markers. There was blue flags. There seemed to be a lot of confusion up ahead on where lapped cars were positioning themselves. Then everyone ghosted. A yellow flag popped up for me. And I came out the corner ahead. I didn't like gaining the place like that. So was slowing down to give the place back. But you slowed to give it back to me. So apologies for the confusion. I guess I should have been in party chat to clarify my intentions.

 

It was a good race anyway. Not much overtaking opportunities though.

 

Right then. The points...................

You should check it from Skells' point of view 😁

 

Poor guy probably had no idea where to go when you both came to pretty much a standstill right in front of him 😆

 

It would be one of the first times I've seen the leaders needing blue flags instead of the lapped ones 😁

No accident. Just Slightly chuckle worthy as you could see the Confusion going on from each car, as none of you wanted to pass each other 😁

It's the last race of out lil not-so-serious championship. 12 laps of Autodrome Lago Maggiore GP. In reverse! No not in reverse gear silly. Although how you race is up to you.

 

Autodrome Lago Maggiore GP is a good track. Even the "wrong" way around. It's a fairly wide circuit. With plenty of opportunities to overtake.

 

Before you jump on this evening. There's a system software update for the PS4. 5.55. It's mandatory if you want to play online.

 

So let's have some fun tonight shall we. Before we get to the more serious business of season 4.

Well, let's see if this week is better than last week. 

 

I thought I wasn't going to make it to the end as my pedal was getting worse and worse as the race went on. 😆

Half way through I lost the ability to control and throttle between 10 and 90%, and near the end it was jumping around even down the straights. No idea how the laptime stayed in the 59's 😁

And that concludes this mini championship. And we have two drivers with 103 points. But looking back at past results......

 

PhoeniX-J-five [Team Blue] 5th / 1st / 2nd / 2nd / 4th

Ronin_GThac [Team Green] 1st / 4th / 4th / 3rd / 2nd

 

Both drivers have the same amount of wins. But PhoeniX-J-five has more second place finishes. So I guess that makes PJ5 the winner. I like to think of you both as winners though. As this season was just a bit of fun anyway. So I congratulate you both. And congratulations go to Team Green for the team championship win.

 

Thanks all for taking part this season. I know it wasn't up to standard as previous championships we've done. But as stated before, it was just a breather before we kick off the GT3 championship next. Which I hope to see you all taking part.

Well that final race was a struggle. Had a chicken burger earlier. And felt ill ever since. It got worse during the race. I was looking forward to this one as well. Been comfortably doing 2:12's in practice. Managed to get a good-ish lap in qualifying. But I was 2 seconds down in the race. Was glad to see the finish line.

 

I'll be posting the details of season 4 tomorrow morning (Friday). Hopefully we fill up the grid quickly. And I will sort out the teams next week. With the first race starting on the 31st.

Congrats @PhoeniX-J-five and @Ronin_GThayc   

An extremely close finish.

 

 

And cheers @RenegadeXtreme for another OPC event.

 

It's a shame that PD/Daihatsu have the car nerfed like that.

Ride height, camber, and gears (the only settings locked) would have made the car a bit more fun.

Let alone the weird decision to only allowing weight gain with Mileage Points.  

 

Anyway, that one's in the rearview mirror now.

It's time to look ahead towards the next championship.

Yeah some settings tweaks would have been nice. And even a fuller grid would have made it more competitive for everyone. Ah well. It's a no-stress fun lil car. It had it's 5 minutes in the spotlight.

Well, last night was a bit difficult in the end.

Qualy went ok, But the first lap no so much. Thought I had the run on Ren into turn 1. When I checked the right view just before turn in I figured I was enough ahead, but I guess being on the right of the turn, it gave Ren a shorter distance and closed up slightly as I ended up turning in on him and we rubbed doors. My bad.

 

Was planning to go slightly easier on the first lap, but got a bump off the apex through the hairpin when I was clearly quite a way in front when I turned in

 

I lost a lot of drive coming out but wasn't too bad.

 

@Tassie_tigerpace seemed to be pulling Hayc along for while... But I think Tass eventually just got bored, pulled the pin and simply checked out... never to be seen again 

 

I felt I had more pace than hayc overall so as I was catching it was a bit annoying not to able to make it a closer race. After he dropped out of Tass's slip stream I could close the gap quite a few times, but I was having huge understeer whenever I got close to being in a slipstream.

The race felt totally different from qualy and I seemed to have a lot of issues getting round corners in general.

 

Had a good chase on with Evil as we both caught up with hayc, but got a touch of slipstream and understeer again, allowing Evil to get even closer and eventually pass. Some overtakes and side by side stuff followed for the rest of the race, but I just couldn't get any grip to stay in play. Ren eventually joined the party too as we ended up slowing each other while scrapping, but I think he held back a touch as myself and Evil were getting quite feisty in front of him too. Probably wondered if all 3 of us would end up in the wall instead :D

 

Some of the more regulars were not around so much this season, but I'll happily take a decent championship position in the end anyway as even a race win itself came as a bit of a surprise. If you dont count wednesdays or sport mode... It's been a while

 

This season was an odd one, as the track and car combinations actually felt even more punishing than the usual.

They were a little too fast for there own good, but also not fast... if that makes any sense

Some of the races felt more like an endurance race, and the smallest mistake gave huge drops in time as these little things still had some grunt to them leading to quite large gaps between us on occasion.

 

@RenegadeXtremeseems to have put a lot in on the next one, so hopefully next season will bring it all back together again... and for me that will be if I can get my head around the tyre wear this time :D

 

Catch you guys in Season 4!
