Congrats to the dynamic duo.

Had a lot of fun in the 1st stint in a 4-way scrap w/ Dale, Pat, & KJ. 3rd stint was a little stressful as for whatever reason I started thinking I may have had a shot at 2nd if Tom pitted again...then I started closing on Brandon when Tom didn't pit. I made a few mistakes in the last stint pushing too hard...fortunately nothing critical.

First stint was fun, second stint was tragic with mistakes and aero damage, third stint was boring with no one in sight and I had a few spins and wall taps just because my mind started wandering.

My takeaway from this event is that my times were almost identical to last year (quali, fastest lap and total race time) so I seem to have leveled out in terms of sim racing improvement. My F1 career plans are on hold.

Congrats to Tom and Brandon for being in a completely different class then the rest of us, well done guys. Also congrats to Chris on a well deserved podium spot.

Disappointing turn out of only 10 racers and further compounded by the DNF's to cut the field in half and only 5 finishing the race. Unless things improve for these special enduro's (The 2 hour one's) I think we need to evaluate even having them. Or race the same tracks and cars but shorten them to do double sprints and we still get the fun of the track and cars without the "Driving around by yourself" for hours part, well at least for some of us. ;)

As for my my evening it was another sucky enduro night for me. This time not so much my performance as it was the internet gods. I only practiced one night and my times were slow and figured same as last year of everyone pulling away and me driving by myself till I get lapped. But thanks to Chris for throwing me a set I got into the 1:08's for the first time and a 1:07.9 for Qualy to put me 4th on the grid. I felt I might be competitive this year, and I was for awhile.

I got into 3rd place off the start and managed to gap 4th on back but was loosing ground to Tom and Brandon each lap, I was fine with that. But as we got to about lap 9-10 I was starting to slide around, noticed my tires were half gone, WTF! Well Chris's set was soft's and I forgot to switch to hard tires for the race. So I needed to scramble an figure out changing my first one to a short stint and the second one would be the full fuel load. In the process of doing the pit menu fiddling and the rapidly wearing tires causing a few wall scrapes, Pat and Dale caught back up to me. I pitted on lap 17, came out and I guess with the damage I had done before the car didn't want to turn good at all. So I managed to really plow into a wall a lap or so later firmly putting me in last place. At this point it was back to the not fun of just driving around by myself again. I was put out of my misery when once again I disco'd from the race server in an enduro, this is getting really old! :evil:

So those of you that ran soft's for a stint , well done because I couldn't. Well maybe if I had planned on it and conserved it might have worked but I pushed hard and it cost me.

Somehow after winning this race in 2015 and 2016 and nothing changing from 2016, I was totally unprepared with the wrong strategy and fuel loads.

In 2015 and 2016, I presumably based my fuel load on how many laps I could get out of a set of softs but somehow I could only manage 17 laps on the right front which was a lap short of what I needed for the two-stop on softs strategy to work. My best guess at what happened is that I was using second gear for up to three corners where I may have used first gear in past years and doing so put more of a load on the RF tire.

Fuel didn't work out, either, I ran out on the chute before the last corner, short-shifted and coasted as much as I dared ahead of that once I realized that I was in trouble. Had Brandon swerved rather than bumping me when I had no drive off the final corner, he would have won, I'm not even certain that I would have made it across the finish line without the bump. The excessive fuel consumption probably was caused by aero damage from lots of scrapes with the walls. My concentration was tenuous for whatever reason and I had lots of distractions from the tire wear and fuel and adjusting on the fly.

In the end it was a superb dramatic close finish but almost nothing about the race otherwise was even much fun.

Last year, we had lots of drivers post lap times during the week but only 14 showed up on Sunday.

This year the had 25 drivers record at least one lap but only 10 gridded up on Sunday.

I'll have a separate post to discuss this event as well as the other AES events going forward. Similar to what KJ wrote, my inclination is to either cancel them or change the format. As much as I enjoy the Le Mans 2.4, it may be on the chopping block as dropping it would open up a weekend to allow me to eliminate a compromise and improve the Trans Am schedule and the same can be said for the 2018 AES events and the series that are impacted by making room for them in the annual schedule.

To me, the AES series was intended to bring in new drivers and provide a series for regular ESR drivers to fall back to when the time came when they could only run a part-time schedule. Neither of those are happening.

While I do prefer longer races, I realize I'm in a minority. I have other avenues now that I'm running that are longer race formats, so you won't hear too much noise from me if you choose to get rid of them. I really enjoy the special events though, and would rather see them go to a 2 or 3 race "sprint" format than go away altogether. It's the only opportunity I take to run some of those mods all year. Just my $.02.

Thanks, Chris.

My first thought is to dream up some sort of "Triple Crown" for the V8 Supercars based on the real world series and run three sprint races, one at each track. With qualifying and ~25 minute races, that would put us at about 50 minutes for each one or 150 minutes overall which is about how long the 2.4 hour races run.

Le Mans is the truest endurance race that we run as far as running through the night and probably the best attended so we'll probably just leave that alone other than trying to figure out which classes to run for 2017.

Daytona seems fine and kicks off the SCCS series with the only endurance race for the summer series.

No one's really complained about VLN Nordschleife and that's properly an endurance race, no sprint racing there.

We've been switching up DRM with different tracks but maybe instead it's time to drop it and try something new, so many big races that we haven't simulated. The way that it's been going, I can't see fewer drivers showing up for whatever we dream up instead.
