    I will stream this event. My voice is kinda weird as I have a summer bug of some sort so my commentary may be limited, but we will give it a go. As usual I will start at the end of qualifying.

    I'll definitely be there next week. Between driving across a state, spending all weekend at some races, then driving 7 hours back, staying up all night to study for a midterm, then going directly to work, I've had about 4 hours of sleep in the last 50. This probably wouldn't be my best race

    I'll be driving (crashing?) an Audi. :sneaky: Running between 1:39 and 1:42 lap times.
    Internet has been up and down all day so there's a chance I'll be disconnected during the race.
    GT3 cars are much easier to drive on this track!

    So that was a bummer. I don't know what happened but somehow I got booted from the server or disconnected during the warm up and wasn't able to rejoin. I will try again next week.

    Fun race, these old race cars are beasts:p. Got a bad start and nearly stalled it (Max Verstappen style), so I lost a few spots right there but there was a spin so I inherited 3rd. Tried to reel in David D. who was quick in his stang but he was mr. steady (as usual). Then Dirk in his Audi Quattro starts reeling me in but he dropped back (or pitted?). Then Bock and me had a long battle ( actually he was faster but my car was wider:laugh:). But Bock finally got me:cry:. Then Crew Chief told me I needed to add fuel at the stop so lost time trying to change my pitstop preset to add 2 gallons. Had one off into the grass that really cost me a bunch of time getting turned around while I was in the lead before the pitstop, so after the stop I was down in 8th:confused:.

    Grats to David D. who was surprizingly quick, I figured this was Bocks race, because he was fastest in P1 - P2 and Q1 and :thumbsdown:.
