As with all OPC events. The championship is open to all drivers of any skill level. Simple copy & paste the driver list below. And add your name to sign-up for the championship. Pop me a Friend Request on PSN if your not already on my Friends List. And you are good to go.

As a Donny Rovers fan, bottle jobs are ingrained within me. As I proved tonight.

😁 

I was lining you up to sleep stream heading into that last lap. I could easily have followed you off and just that would have changed the result though.

 

Good race 😁👍

@NAC72 why did you park at last turn which caused a yellow flag and stopping all of us to overtake?

Race report and replay time! 

 

I did a lil 5 lap race in Arcade mode just to get a rough idea on things for the race later. So that, and some laps after last weeks racing, was my testing for the week.

 

Qualifying

 

Made a few mistakes on my opening timed lap. Around the first corner, degner and spoon. Damn you spoon! Thought I had done a really slow lap with a 2:09. 6 seconds off my time earlier in the arcade race. Then I realised I must have had BoP turned off in the arcade race. Made a mistake again at degner and spoon on second timed lap. But with less fuel I knocked off a lil bit of time. Third attempt at a timed lap was much smoother. Although only a few tenths quicker. But good for pole.

 

Feature Race

 

Got a good enough start to lead into the first corner. Was a safe opening lap. After touching the grass through the S's on second lap. I managed to pull a gap of a few seconds over the next laps. And just controlled the gap from there. Pitting after lap 5 and bringing the car home for the win.

 

 

Sprint Race

 

A bit more eventful starting last. And no help from Bob this week. Kept things clean through first corner and S's. A recovering car caught up pretty quickly as we were all bunched up and cut through the inside over the grass on the inside. Pushing one car into a spin. Another car went wide. And another somehow ended up hitting the pit entrance wall. So a few places made up. Going 3 wide into first corner and ran it round the outside to make a pass on 2 cars. Love that corner! But I went wide on last corner at end of lap. So lost quite a few positions. Caught up fairly quickly. And with the help of some good overtakes, and mistakes (and penalties) from other drivers. I managed to get up to 3rd on last lap.

 

 

Now on to a few other things...............

 

A number of drivers in this championship and previous. Are being a lil too aggressive with their overtaking. And lacking patience. I'm not one for handing out penalties, as the game, and the drivers should be able to deal with that in a fair and respectful manor. So please just keep that in mind. Also, can we also be careful when slowing down for penalties. I know cars ghost when losing penalties. But it can still unsettle a car behind if it's done at unexpected areas of the track. Sometimes resulting accidents.

 

Thanks for the races last night. Hopefully see you all next week.

Round 4 feature race edit is up! 

Enjoy 😁

 

(I think Baba said he would try commentary.... Might hold him to that next time as it's the one thing that's really missing 😜) 

 

 

Had a bit of extra time off this week, so I've tried to figure a shorter layout for the Sprint races too. See what you think.

 

(too much going on all at once to follow overtakes etc, so just my perspective. Could follow a different driver or winner each week)

In the interests of clean racing see you at Interlagos.

 

Spoiler
If I join you at St. Croix there won't be much clean driving from me.
