  1. yeah I pm'ed before making that post...never got a response.
  2. Team Motorcrap is looking for a fourth driver for Road America in a couple weeks with our '88 Mustang. PM me for details.
  3. Haha, thats just it...thats only the incidents that I saw...plenty more that I wasn't near.
  4. I did hear alot of your name mentioned during the race! Oh I was totally blocking. I even said that in the first post. I would never normally do that, but it was the last lap and I was fighting to hold on to my position. I didnt notice you until he went on my left. At that point it was up to him to let up or push....I honestly expected him to duck back behind me. But thanks for the pick!
  5. Even more action then last video...took longer to record and chop up than I planned. But here ya go, highlights from my view of the race. Still a fun time, but still a mess. I'm not particularity fast in the Miata, but keeping it *mostly* clean and avoiding trouble netted me 10th in class. Was running on fumes the last lap...dont know if I could've run another full lap. Enjoy! Side Note - Orange car that I ran into was LAPS behind, in 36th in place, and I was running down 8th...ended up finishing 10th. And Last time down the stretch, was totally blocking, but we both laughed about it at the end, had to defend to stay in 10th.
  6. Will have a highlight vid up in the morning.... plenty of action on track, even acouple including me...one when someone decided to turn infront of me at the last secondthe...causing me to run into the back of them and lose a position (luckly not worse). Still managed 10th in the miata. Had fun, but the decisions some people were making on track where just ridiculous. Like BACKING onto track with traffic coming...seriously
  7. Ugh, let ya down. Wasnt able to get on last night. But will try again next week!
  8. It was fun last night...but obvious there are very different levels of iRacing / sim skill out there. I'm relatively new to iRacing, and usually off the pace a few seconds in most races....that being said...it was very obvious there were people who are very skilled at iRacing and people who very inexperienced with it. I joined the practice/qual late, and was only able to get a couple clean laps in, while re-learning the miata a bit and trying to find the fast way to get it around the track. So I ended up starting towards the back of the pack, and saw a fair share of carnage (see my highlights thread). Id say it was a fair mix of inexperience and people not really caring how they did or what happened. I know I wasnt taking it to seriously, but still focused on keeping things clean. But it was fun. I managed a few decent laps, mostly due to having someone to chase. Was happy with were I finished (from 40th to 19th overall). Hard to take it to seriously tho...with such gaps in skill and very little penalty for wrecks on track.
  9. That's part of my setup. I use something called TrackIR, it tracks your head movement and moves the camera with your head. I got it because I used to play alot of flight sims. But it works great with iRacing too.
  10. I did live up to the stories of those wild East Region races haha.
  11. threw together a quick video of....ummm....highlights from my view of last nights race. A bit of a poop show, but was still fun. Enjoy!

    lol...Champcar. Not a fan...but to each their own. Personally would've went with something that hasnt already been used, but I get most names are pretty cliche to begin with (Which I thought was different about Chump). But I get trying to change the perception of the series, with a couple other competing series out there that have more of a "serious image". Personally always really liked the name and the notions that go with it....its racing but for average guys/gals that want to have fun, be competitive, and earn some bragging rights...not to be taken too seriously. I think its funny to that the real Champcar was "Champcar World Series" and it was "Chumpcar World Series"....which I always assumed was done on propose. But apparently I'm in the minority.
  13. How is saying it got sketchy blowing things out of proportion? From what I remember (I was there, racing that weekend...not going on rumors) there was the one big wreck and atleast one or two more that tagged the wall, and a few close calls and dangerous pass's. Im fine running the kink, but with how people acted this weekend, it wouldnt be pretty.
