    It is disappointing how many dudes are like, I MUST WIN PRACTICE!

    I finally finished Sebring with 0x. How did I do it? I started on the back row of about 15 cars. I made my way through the field and finished fourth.

    I've been avoiding the Advanced Mazda Cup series, considering how crashy it was the last few times I tried it. I decided to try it again, as it is at Road America this week. I like RA. I was not disappointed; just as crashy. However, it worked to my advantage. I started from the pits, a whole 20-30 seconds down from the rest of the 27 car field. I steadily made my way to 13th, despite a dude I just passed bombing me. I saw it coming and stayed wide. Had 0x by the end of the race. I am pleased with that result.

    I've also been avoiding the Rookie MX-5 Cup. Just wanted to work on my SR, so I started at the back, 12th. I finished 5th.

    This irating thing is confusing.
    Had another race in the production car series, again in the Solstice.
    Finished 3rd in class with 3 incidents and lost irating.
    The two ahead of me had 7 and 5 incidents each, but gained irating.
    Thought it was all about being clean.

    I think it really depends on who you are racing against and what their iRating is. Also, incidents are not used for iRating.

    In other news, I had a great finish in a truck race earlier. Used my joker on the last lap to pass four trucks to take 2nd. I started last out of 9 trucks.



    For those of you that do not know, the joker lap is kind of like a short cut (or long cut) you have to take a specified number of times during a race. I've only ever seen one per race though.

    Haha!

    What’s with the guy doing the full-on corner cut through the parking lot on the last turn?

    I do not know. Looks like he is simply trying to cheat.

    Like Cam said, iRating is supposed to be a numerical score for how fast you are, and is completely separate from incidents. Kinda like a chess rating, how much it goes up when you do well depends on the iRating of the people you beat, and vice versa when it goes down. SR is entirely based on the number of incident points you've racked up in the last some-number of corners and has nothing to do with how fast you are/where you place in races. SR affects which series you're allowed to race in via your license, iRating affects which split you end up in if there are enough participants in the race, in an attempt to keep you in a group where you're all competitive with each other.
