Nice! I've always said consistency is the most powerful attribute for these kinds of races (makes me feel better since I'm consistently slow lol) but it really can pay off.

Your mind was probably racing coming into those last few corners thinking how you might make a move, then they rolled out a red carpet to victory lane for you

Oh it was exhilarating. I knew 2nd and 1st would try to take out each other during the last set of turns, the Brazilian driver was quite aggressive so it was a waiting game, but trying to stay up close.


Never thought I would win it in such manner. I almost got taken out twice but thankfully the game would ghost the driver loosing control.

Welp, Class C drivers are no joke lol. Cant even fathom making it to B. Or even S. I could barely hold on to 1st after posting podium but ended up 3rd since I decided not to risk an accident and let 2nd and 3rd pass me and battle it out.

1st place praised my respectfulness but told me to “Next time fight more”.

SR is S at the moment.

Yeah, B rank is pretty tough. Oddly enough, you'll get a mixed bag of rammers and people who can actually drive. I was briefly in A rank, and I couldn't hang at all.

What sucks is the judging system can get all wonky and someone can ram you into someone else, and your sportsmanship rating tanks. Took me a while to get back to S since I kept getting grouped with rammers.

Same here, B, briefly A. I really stopped trying so hard and would not qualify and just work from the back. Dealing with the bad sportsmanship over a win in B wasn’t worth it. Fighting from the back to finish in 5th or 6th was more fun. The MFG cup had some great races and I did really well, I just couldn’t finish the whole series due to being busy.

Yeah, sometimes I would just hop in with no qualifying or practice, and just see how many spots I can gain from starting in the back.

I can never do the MFG cups since I can never make it to any of the races.

Theres this guy at work that always tried to one-up everyone. Even myself because he drove an STi and would always talk about winning races and what not. Cool story bro.

We both shared a passion for GT series. But I don’t like playing against him because he always tries to pull something shady with the cars he selects, that I constantly have to set rules to make the field even. Then, I win every time.

His favorite line is a paraphrase of “Dude I almost had you”. If he is a second behind my fastest lap, in his mind, he wins? I try to be respectful and nice and stay humble. Giving him tips and what not.

The latest one is that he saw my qualifying time for the Deep Forest Daily Race. Sends me a message and goes “Im beating your time today, Im a second behind”. To mess with him, I log on, post an even faster time, and let him marinate on that. Still haven’t received the message saying he beat it.
