    Cars are still teleporting all over the shop for me so until that’s alleviated I’m out.

    Had some good racing towards the end of each race as tyre wear penalised others and allowed me to battle them a bit, it made the race more interesting for me.

    Race 1 was ruined after I got punted into the AstroTurf at T1 and spun around, could’ve been a lag punt cause there wasn’t a redress, then after pushing hard to get back I spun again.
    Race 2 I had the bonus of starting on pole after my woeful race 1. After breaking out to a 6 second lead well overdriving the car out of annoyances from race 1 still, spun at T1 again and that was it.
    Just realised I’m in 1A, probably should start practising and driving like it if I return for the rest of the races.
    Side note: Even the practise lobby was lagging a lot, most like my rubbish internet, hopefully it changes. :unsure:

    Thrilled to have grabbed 3rd in qualifying, and I knew I had a good shot at a podium finish for race 1.

    I cannot for the life of me get this car off the line quickly so I immediately lost a place to Risky, then I was punted wide at T1 which dropped me to 7th I think. Some close midfield racing and consistent laps and I was back up into 4th with Risky about 4 seconds ahead.
    Put the head down and went hard to catch him, and when I did he made the overtake easy for me.
    From there I just tried to keep the car on the road and manage the gap to the rest of the field knowing there was no chance of ever catching Keeden and Mint up front.
    Very happy with 3rd.

    Race 2 was forgettable. I jump started following letsparty who did the same in front of me. After viewing the replay I had only jumped it by the smallest of margins. I pushed hard which ruined the tyres and by L12 the car was almost undriveable. My eyes were looking at 4th but mistakes cost me too much time. I was settling for 6th, until the final sector of the final lap when the car just would not turn and would not find grip. The track felt like it was wet. Coming out of the final corner I had no grip and Risky dragged me to the line and ended up snatching 6th place.

    Highlight: Race 1
    Lowlight: Race 2
    Lol :laugh:

    See you next week

    Had fun again. Did literally 0 prace. Joined the room at 8.15. Did a out lap and half a fying lap before sight check was called. From then on i just went oh well you have 10min to learn. Sorry razor for the bump into turn 1 on race 1. Went from 8th to 5th then by the end of the lap back to 8th lol, just understeered from one corner to the next on the first lap. Then started finding a little rythem and started picking up speed until i turned it around only the way i can. Just asked for a centermeter more space on the track limit and it said no fu@€$ off, and i end up of the edge of the map somewhere lol. I drive like Lobe all out to the end or the biggest crash you have ever seen lol. Race 2 felt like i was still learning the track and car relationship. Felt like i could off pushed a little harder but my goal was just to try and keep it clean. Wd beau, mint, razor

    When I caught you earlier, I thought I had you ricciardo'ed when I feigned left and went right, but you then moved again to squeeze me and I just missed the grass, but still broke a fraction too late !!

    For sure. That was a deciding moment for 3rd. I could see you had a run and with all that speed you were going t9 try something. I was hoping you threw it up the inside. You left it pretty late trying to bait me wide. I just got away with it.

    When i found out we'd be using the Nissan as our car for the season i straight away knew what i wanted to do for the retro livery. Nissan returned to sportscar racing in 1995 with the Skyline GT-R LMS which proved initially successful however would so be outpaced by other manufacturers who were using loopholes in the GT regulations to build proper race cars that had no resemblance to a road car.

    So in 1997 the Nissan R390 GT1 was born, It would be very fast at Le Mans in 1997 but that wouldn't come without issue, Before the race had even begun all 3 of the works R390 GT1 cars failed scrutineering which required modifications for the cars to be legal for the race. These modifications led to all 3 cars having overheating issues with the gearbox which retired 2 cars from the race and the 3rd finishing 12th several laps behind the eventual winning Joest Racing Porsche (Fun Fact also the first of 9 Le Mans wins for "Mr Le Mans" Tom Kristensen)

    For 1998 several changes were made to the Nissan including a new rear diffuser and rear wing, which improved the overall aerodynamics of the car, Despite struggling in qualifying all 4 works cars would have resounding overall success with all cars finishing the race in 3rd 5th 6th and 10th only losing out to the works Porsches. Our livery is based on car #32 driven by Aguri Suzuki, Kazuyoshi Hoshino and Masahiko Kageyama which would finish the race 3rd. Nissan's best overall results at Le Mans. It's a real pleasure getting to race this car for the retro round but because Le Mans in the next round after retro round we'll be racing the livery their as well. Getting to bring this livery back to Le Mans 20 years after Nissan's biggest success at Le Mans is a real honour. Really looking forward to the next 2 rounds.

    Just wanted to clarify one thing as well i didn't make this livery, With only 4 SAR members racing GTS and not all of them being certain of making the round i didn't see the point of putting hours of work in when one has already been done especially with how busy work is at the moment, hope you guys understand. @CAB77 @VARDZ @Heyagarn

    Forgot to add after 1998 regulations for the GT1 category were changed which was done to prevent manufacturers from exposing loopholes like i mentioned earlier. After this the R390 GT1 was now illegal and therefore was abandoned by Nissan. Nissan would make a new car for the new regs but weren't successful and would end up leaving Le Mans racing until 2015 when they returned with the GT-R LM Nismo which was a complete disaster. Hopefully we'll see Nissan return to Le Mans in the near future.
