    I think a couple in my league are trying that, not sure how it's going really. I'm 3 stopping on softs, which seems to be working ok, little worried whether 4 stopping on extra softs would have been quicker though, theres some people on pretty quick laps.

    My car had a fault, I was looking OK for a 2 stopper, but it's out of the window now. I'll be lucky to get in the top 20 :(

    I think I'm short fuelled and it's going to cost me a win. Gutted.

    EDIT: Got it bang on, pole and win so very, very happy!

    Nicked third on the last lap, so pretty satisfied with that race, although I think I had a collision when trying to overtake 2nd earlier on in the race which forced me into another pitstop. How was the race for everyone else?

    Second place for me too, which also puts me top of the league! Admittedly it's a little hollow, seeing as the previous leader hasn't raced for 5 races, but it means promotion is almost definite now. Qualifying for Finland has gone ok, although I've very little tyre wear data for high temperatures, so my 3 stopper on softs is a bit of a gamble, but the short pit time should help if I'm forced into an extra stop. Currently on pole, of 7 qualifiers.

    Not far from the end of the season now, how is it looking for everyone?

    I'm set to top my league, which is much better than I expected halfway through the season, but it's due in so small part to the league leader quitting halfway through. Hopefully I'll finish on the podium in this race.

    Anyone else set to promote?

    I have remained in Ams this years, also I have managed to save a little money too in the last few races.

    So next season, we'll see how I start and then I decide if I'm going to push onwards or do another season of saving cash.

    Finished 4th, I think that will mean that I stay in Amateur again next season. See what the next race gives me, then I'll decide if to try for promotion or save money.

    Got relegated last season :(. Thougth I might scrape survival but last race of the season did not go my way.

    Missed the first race of this season because could not find a driver. Still can't find a driver I want, rookie driver market is crazy, so just signed this cheap guy on the short term.

    Concentration: 235
    Talent: 47
    Aggressiveness: 0
    Experience: 36
    Technical insight: 50

    Hi might be worth keeping and training if you got him cheap enough.

    It would take a season but it would be worth it.

    Mifune, I think talent could be an issue, and he'd need Stamina training, but he could potentially be good in a seasons time. What are the wages like?

    Actually, on the topic of stamina training, you may as well do yoga to max out concentration first, as that will cost you stamina, and then worry about increasing Stamina. It'll save you a couple of stamina points in the long run.

    His wages are $438.938.

    I have him on a 4 race contract, if I still can't find another striker by the end of his contract then I will probably sign him on for the rest of the season.

    Ideally looking for a driver with:

    Concentration: >200
    Talent: >90
    Experience: >80
    Tech: >100
    Stamina: >10
    Weight: <85

    Found a driver like that yesterday but somebody just bid for him:(.

    I think the Tech might be higher than needed, but everything else is about right. Just found out that higher experience reduces wear on parts and tyres, so the higher the better really.

    19th in the race for me, if the rain had stopped 2 laps later I'd have had enough fuel to save a stop, which was annoying. I think relegation is definitely on the cards this season.

    11th for me, I didn't stop for the rain, but it was raining too long for me.

    Am's is hard work to retain, I'm hoping that I'm safe already this season so I can build up my funds a little bit for a big push next season.

    6th for me which was not that bad seeing as I did not stop for the rain which I had hoped would not last as long as it did.

    3rd for me, but pitted on the last lap from 1st so a bit annoying but still a good finish.
