Back on the East Coast after our Californian adventure last week, as we take our favourite FWD machine back to VIR for the third and final time this year. Temps are likely to be cold but the short North course is deceptively tricky. Passing will be difficult so roll the dice on strategy.

Back at home in Jetta.  All the vehicles we use have their quirks but the FWD is the strongest for me.

 

Yes Mr. @Rapido it was December 4 in the sim but we were met with temps in the mid 80-s F which was a bit unrealistic.  Maybe the random weather generator could be roped in a bit?  The grass was green and the leaves were still on the trees but I think changing that will require some help from iRacing ;)

 

Managed a P5 qualifying effort.  I got jumped on the start again.  I need to figure out why - seems like others are getting the go signal first or maybe I blink too much lol.  After that and a wobbly first couple laps including a little off track excursion in NASCAR turn I worked my way back to P9.  I then got settled and through decent consistency, some others misfortune, and a good pit stop I worked my way up to P4.  Michael Derby was like 5-6 seconds ahead and I could gain a little but then would give it back.  Eventually I lost my edge, maybe a little grip, and he increased the gap.  Still had a solid hold on P4 and finished there.   

 

As always thanks to everyone at Hugh Jass for facilitating these events.

@mostmintSpot on with your lack of reaction at the start.  I think it was my first time starting behind you, so I can't comment on other races, but in this one, you were very delayed.  I didn't want to go 3-4 wide on the start, so I kinda hung back, but that might have caused a big mess behind us as several cars got together.

I saw the mess behind and appreciate everyone who was patient with that I don’t think you were the only one.  The leader waited a long time after the pace car went off to start but of the top 6 clearly I was the only one late to the throttle.  Do you use the UI or the web interface?

I use the website, not the UI.
