Race night tonight, guys! We'll be cruising around the beautful streets of Madrid. The question on everyone's mind is.....can Juan-de-Juarez be stopped?!?!? We'll find out tonight. I'll have the room up by no later than 8:30pm EST (probably earlier). Racing starts at 9:30pm EST. See you all there!
well ive won the last 2 times ive done a league race on this track, (Exotics and Gt500) and took 2nd in the other that i didnt win. (lmp) also havnt been beat in rome, a track built a lot like this one. im only turning mid to high 1:30.000's but i think that these guys dipping to 1:29 cant keep that up over the course of a race.
Hey guys. I will be making the race tonight. Plans changed and I'll be here so I'll see y'all tonight. I'm coming into this race with some frustration from getting my @ss handed to me last night with the TPRA guys, so WATCH OUT!
Ken, I ran 2 laps under 30.000. One was a 29.8 and one was a 29.9. Anywhere in the 1:30's seems really fast but I'm sure you could go faster in the right car.
Hey guys. I'll be putting the room up in a just a minute. If I don't respond to you when you come in the room, it's because I have to run and check the mail.
great racing tonight. Juan, myself and ECI went at it for the lead for a while with Tguns right there. once i got away from everyone on pit stops i was able to race the TRACK and not other drivers and started pulling back to TG and ECI. great run, i LOVE this track.
i kinda hope i get to race with you guys next week but it all depends on weather. its our last summer shoot out seires night at the track.
if anyone has a FF rally car they would be willing to send me for this race that would really help a lot. i dont have many RMs either. i dont even know what cars CAN be RMed.

Ken, the car with "RM" in its car name are race modifiable. Search for "RM" from the following list:

Well, last night was a tough one for me. I raced with Kensington and Juan for several laps at the start of the race. Tguns made his way into the mix a few laps later. I had my car running real good, and had managed to pull away from those guys and give myself about a 6 second lead by lap 14. I was unsure if Juan was going to try to go the distance again, so I opted to stay out of the pits that lap. I saw all 3 of them go into the pits. Then I started to overthink the situation, and decided to try and go the distance. By about lap 20, I realized that I made a big mistake. Tguns was running me down fast. He was clicking off 2-3 seconds per lap. At that point, it was to late to hit the pits, and I just had to hope for the best. Tguns got to my bumper by lap 25. I knew his tires were in much better condition than mine, so I just let him through. Guess I fell about 3 laps short. Nice job on the win to Tguns.
I went and watched the replay, and it looks like Juan had a couple of rough corners that really ended his race early. That definitely shook up the standings a bit.
Looking forward to next weeks race. Remember, you can use ANY FF car you want. Race, RM, Concept, Prototype, whatever. There is a 500pp limit, and you may use ANY tire that you like. It's a long race, but the reward will be worth it. This race will be DOUBLE POINTS.
