    THIS WEEK
    This week the TNGTC makes its second and final trip to the USA this season, with a visit to the Glen this week. The circuit is in the state of New York and has been on the TNGTC Calendar for all three seasons now. Big moments in previous seasons included the dramatic back-marker collision for Holmes, which potentially put his title in jeopardy.

    THE CIRCUIT
    Watkins Glen International is one of the few NASCAR circuits that are not ovals, and is a medium length circuit, measuring in at around 3.4 miles, with a GT3 Lap Time of around 1:42.000. The circuit is bumpy and the high kerbs can be tricky to use, so drivers will be tested to the limit.

  12. Well it's come to a point where I've had enough. I'm gonna see the season out, and then unless the current either class of cars or current set of GT3 cars are changed, I'm out!

    I've had a great time in this league, achieved the one goal I had when I set this thing up nearly three seasons ago, and I've had some terrific battles throughout the seasons. Most notably with @Gareth Williams, @Ben Milden, @LIAMATTHURSO, @Adam Morris, @Ben McCluskey and of course, the best battle I ever had, with @Adel Elsayed!

    If this is my last season, I wanna say thank you for much fun, and some great opponents.

    Thanks for letting me race with you all, even though I wasn't nearly as fast as the rest of the field. I am happy that I scored some points in both races though :D

    Also, my apologies for the spin at turn 1 during the sprint race. I hope I didn't cause too much damage to others...

  17. Feature
    Q: 1st
    R: 1st

    what can I say, knocked this one out the park. Close battle at other circuits but here I was in another atmosphere, But I'll certainly take it. Feels good to be back on the top step and in fine fashion.

    Sprint
    Q: 9th(dnq)
    R: 3rd

    Always fun these sprint races but always prone to some kind of contact. Hard being a driver faster coming from behind with some good defenders. If you don't try, you can't succeed, but you have to be fair.
    Nonetheless, had fun, good battles with eventuall passes with @Benjamin McC then @Lance Loomis after his off, then @Andrew Holmes (epic overtake), then got to @Rob McEwan who was defending extremely well, tried to buzz around him to intimidate him but he wasn't having it, he squeezed me off, which let @Dean Ragan by then a battle with him, a slight squeeze again trying to terrorize him then an aggressive move down the inside of turn 8, we made contact as he didn't expect it then he touched the grass and lost the car, sooo sorry it ended that way as it was gonna be solid wheel to wheel after that, apologies to him for invading the gap. Then back to Rob who unspooled in the last lap in epic fashion... Gud day overall.

  18. Good move dude, I had no grip so had to defend the inside. Nonetheless I could do nothing to prevent that
     
  19. Cheers bud. It felt awesome! And thanks for giving fair room. :)
