Looking Forward

As we come to Week 9 of the 12 week season, I've started thinking about which series I'd like to concentrate on next season. In the list of cars which I've purchased and not really got any return on investment from yet there are two which I'm currently giving test drives; the Ruf C-Spec and the C6R Corvette.

I've come to realize that the 'Vette really needs a lot of patience and while I think I'd enjoy coming to grips with this mean machine, I'm initial leaning more towards the C-Spec. It is a handful, but catchable.

Looking at the schedule for next season, there is an interesting mix of tracks; some that I know and love and a bunch which will be new to me.

  1. Daytona - Short (haven't run that layout)
  2. Laguna Seca
  3. Bathurst
  4. Indianapolis - Road (haven't run in iRacing)
  5. Monza - Junior (new to me)
  6. Phillip Island
  7. Road America - Full
  8. Sebring - International
  9. Suzuka - East
  10. VIR - North (new to me)
  11. Twin Ring Motegi - GP
  12. Sonoma - layout tbd (new to me)

I'm going to start practicing over the final few weeks and get a feel for the car. I doubt I'll actually jump into a real race, but the tracks for the final weeks of the season are ones that I know very well. So it'll be a good chance to learn the car, rather than having to learn both car and track:

  1. Interlagos - Grand Prix
  2. Twin Ring Motegi - East (night)
  3. Suzuka - Grand Prix
  4. Donington - National
  5. Spa Francorchamps - Classic Pits (night)
