    If you are on the server either alone or with others, you can use the rFactor VOTE system to change the session. :)

    No he doesn't mean that race John. This is a thread for the rFactor Historic Group C series. He was asking about the last race in the series. :)

    So here we are at the final round of the series with three drivers still close enough for the Championship to be anybody's. This is the way to close out a series for sure and it's not just the top three who are in for a fight. Those of us in 4th-10th are also close enough on points for the final positions to be far from decided, especially with a few new, fast SRO members joining for this race.

    Good luck to everyone and thanks for supporting what has been a very competitive series. :)

    Should we use an anticheat?

    No additional software needed.

    I found this a very intense final race due to the high-speed nature of the track. In practice I saw some guys running higher top speeds and some lower, but still getting a good lap-time either way, so I made a couple of changes to my setup to try and slot somewhere in the middle of both. It worked fine in Qualifying with a 6th place, but then in the race as the tyres wore out a bit, the balance fell away and I ended up making a few errors, two of which needed repairs and an earlier stop than I had planned.
    All together I ended up losing out on challenging for 4th place in the Series, but overall I can't complain.

    Grats to Paul on taking the Championship for BVR after a strong final challenge from Csaba and Scott and also to those new SRO members who joined us today and acquitted themselves very well I thought. Grats also to Bad Voices Racing on sealing the Teams Championship. :) It's also gratifying to see that we have a good nucleus of members who, for whatever reason, are still interested in running in an rFactor series.

    Dam, I missed the race again, just not used to the earlier time slot. I was ready to rumble, but ....
    I was watching the Long Beach IMSA race and got side tracked.

    With having to miss my vacation to a warmer dryer surf climate, and a continued extended winter weather depression funk here in Oregon,
    I have been getting very easily annoyed with life. Adding to that, with last race and the dtm race going very badly,
    Even though I found I had good race pace the night before (low to mid 7's), I was having a hard time trying to focus and to rid the negative thoughts before this race.
    In Qual was my first run low fuel run and my first sub 7, so I was feeling ok.. But the start was a disaster, getting pinballed back to 13th
    with damage on 3 corners of the car, and dealing with laggy cars, I was not a happy camper.
    Even after a recovery to 3rd, I was in a very bad mood not to be able to at least be close to racing Paul or Csaba in the final.

    But today, (cue the flowers and singing birds) I looked at the weather forecast for next week, and it looks like I'll be in my element, windsurfing some nice waves,
    and am now in a much better mood.:cool:
    So congrats to them, thanks all for the good competition, and thanks for the series Ken, it really helps distract me through my winter depression. I need to remember to just have fun, racing who I can race on the day. And come to think of it, Jorge and I did have a good battle, too bad I wasnt enjoying it yesterday..
