Two hours' sleep. One of our drivers has gone AWOL. Up to 10th. Time for me to drive again!

Just finished my last stint of the race (a triple! On one set of tyres!) 106 laps in total at 4 mins a lap so about 7 hours of driving - yikes.

Up to 7th in class, P22 overall. :attitude:

Welp, that didn't work out as planned. Server disconnects meant I had to jump back in the car for another hour. Now I'm destroyed. Leaving the other two to finish off.

Down in P11 now though. :(

Well done! There's a really nice le mans 24 series on Amazon that I binge watched.

Jack Bauer drives a racing car?

He rides a bike pretty well.

Week 16 - Toyota/Save Mart 175 @ Sonoma Raceway (55 laps, 110 miles)
Image

Q: 9
R: 19

After missing three weeks due to other commitments I came back to the NASCAR iRacing Series at one of the only two road courses on the calendar. Let's be kind to these cars, they handle like utter barges at the best of times, but put them on a very slippery, dusty desert track and it's quite the challenge. However I did ok in qualifying and put the car in 9th. Got stuck behind two teammates in 6th so decided to pit a couple of laps early for the one and only pit stop and managed to undercut them as I managed to stay out in 4th after they pitted.

Unfortunately a lap later I managed to destroy my engine when accidentally putting it into 1st gear when I meant to change up to 3rd! This meant I had to wait 30 mins for a new powerplant and by this point there were only two laps left. A big shame as I was doing well, but considering last year I was about 5 seconds a lap slower here, I'm definitely making an improvement. Back to Daytona next week and I definitely have unfinished business there after the Daytona 500!

Week 21 - Overton's 200 @ Pocono Raceway (80 laps, 200 miles)
Image
Q: 10
R: 5

Missed another four weeks due to other commitments which means trying to win my division has gone out the window now (you are allowed six drop weeks in the 36 week season). Did surprisingly well considering I'm not usually very good at the tricky triangle. Got tangled up in the first incident on lap 1 but didn't suffer any damage luckily. Had some interesting moments when making some passing manoeuvres but was really pleased to squeak into the top 5 at the end.

Week 23 - Pure Michigan 200 @ Michigan International Speedway (100 laps, 200 miles)
Image
Q: 9
R: 8

Missed Watkins Glen but came back for Michigan. My team has basically fallen apart in the last month or so. An hour before the race I was invited to join another team and using an unfamiliar setup managed to bring it home in 8th after incurring some damage scraping the outside wall which dropped me from P5 to P25. I'll take that.
