    Despite having 8x by the end of the first lap, I got incredibly lucky in this week's Porsche Cup race. At least watch the first lap for some zaniness.

    I havenít had a good week in the trucks. Itís Charlotte this week and everyone seems to have either not dropped their habits from ĎDega, or gotten free-track-itis and left their brains at the door.

    Last race I did was last night, which is early morning (2-4am) USA time and you only get two splits for NASCAR series rather than 15-20. It was lap 2 and I was being hung out to dry on the outside line, but I was happy to let people filter by as I was saving tyres for a run later in the race. Suddenly I get tapped in the bum by the #1 car of the split (who has 4.7k and didnít qualify so heís both farming IR in the morning and doing a last-to-first challenge) and spun out. Instant engine death and a 10 minute repair, so basically out of the race.

    I said ďthanks whoever that wasĒ and the guy replied, ďyeah I wasnít expecting you to come to a stop in the middle of the corner there where the rest of us are hitting the throttle but yeah Iíve had a shit week and lost over 300 IR since yesterday and Iím trying to get back up over 5000 again but everyone drives like shit and theres a lot of idiots on today but yeah I didnít expect you to slow right down in front of the whole field so I guess thatís my fault sorry I guess yeah now Iíve lost another bunch of iRatingĒ etcetera.

    I replied ďwell you know it was lap 2 and I was just taking it easy and was happy to let everyone by and didnít expect to be turned around right away so yeahÖĒ

    Fucking elitist arse holes man. Too worried about his own iRating to really take ownership of his mistake and lack of racecraft. Thankfully it cost him too.

    I feel your pain. I did four attempts at Indycar at Charlotte so far this week and had poor luck. The last race, I drifted up and touched a car on my high side. 0x contact, but it was enough to put them in the wall. Totally my fault. Later, someone hit me from behind and caused a huge wreck, totally destroying several cars, including mine. I feel like I was driving normally. I do not get how someone can just drive straight into the car ahead under acceleration. It is really easy to not do that, but it happens so often.

    Ever since I stopped racing GTE and GT3 sprints, my road iRating has slowly increased. I just passed 2100 last night. It is the first time that happened since they got rid of Pro Mazda. My Cam-gets-wrecked rate has gone from 75-80% to below 50%. GT racing had a very negative effect on my iRating, and my enjoyment of the sim. I quit racing GTE and GT3 sprints altogether. I still race GT3 enduros with my bro, as drivers are a little calmer in the enduros. I still regularly race GT4.

    I feel like I've made a good effort to reduce the times I wreck myself, even though it could be better. I did 51 races so far this season. I wrecked myself in 7 of them. My goal is for it to be zero. I got wrecked, or was caught up in a wreck, in 24 of them. The rest were reasonable races, but I caused another car to spin in two of them.

    My oval iR sucks because I can't race without getting caught in a wreck, it seems. My oval SR is hovering just above 3, despite trying to improve it. My dirt road iR has been slowly creeping up also. It is now above 2300. The highest it has been is about 2400 when I was racing rookie pro trucks a lot. This season, I've only been racing B class iRX. I have not done any dirt oval yet this season.

    Despite common perceptions, Iíve had pretty tidy races in ARCA. If your licence is stuck in D then give it a try. Short track ovals are generally cleaner than 1.5 mi and above tracks. This season in class C Iíve had a great time at Bristol and Vegas, an ok time at Talladega, but a shit time at Charlotte. I hold better hopes for Kansas and Texas but weíll see. Iím not worried about my oval iR at all, as youíll get idiot drivers no matter what, and racing is more about tactical moves setting up for the last 1/4 of the race instead of pinning the throttle for 20-30 laps, so sometimes I donít even qualify.

    That would require me to buy oval content, which I am not prepared to do at this time. Despite that, I already have my A-class oval license.

    I did IndyCar at Zandvoort earlier. I did not stream it, because I thought it would be a snoozer. I was right. I started on the back row of 12 cars. I was last after turn one. I was alone for the rest of the race, but still finished 5th, because six cars ahead of me wrecked.

    Did my first Dirt UMP Modified race at Limaland. What a horrific car. I am simply racing it for the MPR.

    Trying to get my A-class Dirt Oval license. After racing UMP Modified a few times, I doubt I will ever use my A license after I get it.
