A thread 13 days in advance of the race, I don't know if I can handle this. :p

Lots of time to practise for this one. It's a track I've not actually raced much in this game for one reason or another.

Yeah I'm happy for the break as I need the extra practice. Suzuka is probably my favourite track to drive but I'm not very quick at it!

7 or 8 social races should do it. :D

I feel the same way about it. Like it; not quick.

Good thing there's already one social race thread posted... :)

Just saying I’ve a quali ban for this one. I’ve talked to the coordinator and I can do an outlap to make sure my set up is saved so no need to take me to the stewards if u see me out on track

No worries mate I'm glad you're allowed to do this cos it'd be a pain in the rear if the game screwed you over by not applying your setup just cos you've a qualiban and were unable to check before the race. Good luck to everyone tonight I'll start the lobby at the usual time of 7:45pm UK time so I look forward to seeing you all there

I'm sorry to do this but I'm gonna have to withdraw from the season due to my Xbox developing a mechanical fault meaning it would be unwise for me to be on the track with you guys as the console freezing could cause issues for those around me. I'd like to thank AOR for having me and I hope to be back next season once I've sourced a replacement console. @Justin || Taz I hope this withdrawal doesn't put me on a blacklist of some sort as I love racing here and this is completely out of my control

I've been having internet issues, not speed related or ping, but my internet literally just turns off randomly every few hours. If I somehow dc in quali I'll be switching to my hotspot which has 45ping, 12 download and 5mb upload.

Oh that was a struggle tonight
Still hanging from last night.
Messed up my qualy so started on my messed up mediums from qualy

Ran them till lap 14 and stuck the softs on.

Then lost my wing and pitted for ss with 8 to go

Managed a 1.30.8 then and seemed ok

Suffered with engine noise from lap 9.
Headset kept cutting out

Just tried to stay out way tbh as u are all scrapping for points

Nice to pick up a point

See u next wk drivers

I feel like everyone's bad luck must have changed to good luck for me or something.

I messed up qualifying as I accidentally left it in rich instead of max for half of my best lap,really lucky to nick 4th to be honest.

The first stint I had horrid oversteer, despite the same conditions and setup as the practice race where I had no troubles at all. I just couldn't keep up with Tom and Rapid so I pit early as the undercut is quite big.

Tom ended up coming out just ahead of me, but Rapid disappeared. Sucks to find out he had the pit stop glitch, stupid game.

I was just about able to follow Tom until late in the race and tried a desperate move round the outside into turn 1 to no avail, then I realised I had miscalculated my fuel and had to use lean for most of the last 4 laps.

At that point (about 2 seconds behind) I found out Tom had a 3 second penalty and somehow managed to drive probably my 3 best ever laps under pressure to finish 2.9 behind and win. Lucky.

GG to @Tom123FTW
No idea how @Ferrari3 finished 3rd after starting last, must have been an epic race mate, congrats!

Hard luck to @PXM Rapid and @Sims , it's just not right that these issues should be destroying your races, after all these weeks invested.

Will upload video highlights tomorrow.

Anyone know how to get ur stream if u stream on twitch
If you have the VOD saved, you can either download it or export straight to YouTube, I think. Or embed it to some sites (e.g. here) as the Twitch video itself.

Gutted I couldn't be there cos of my Xbox having issues. As I was looking forward to the race. Gutted for my friend @pxmgetting his title hopes destroyed by an unstable game. There is a chance I won't have to pull out depending on how quick a replacement console gets to me as I'll order it as soon as I get paid on Wednesday. Hoping it's quick as me and @Sims have a constructors title to fight for
