GWJ Forizon Week Saturday 1500 GMT

Too bad no one showed. Doesn't matter, I'll keep it going for at least a few months, even if I am the only one. Jayhawker, since we are switching up sims, I concur that 2 weeks prior notice will work well. So, I will catch up to that this week and implement as we go forward. Don't be shy! Practice and join us! Would it help those interested if we went 2-3 hours earlier? I can do my long Saturday run after rather than before. Thoughts?

If it will help, I can do 2 hours earlier. I won't be there next week though. I still haven't re-purchased Forizon.

Sorry, all day today I've been working on getting my PC race rig up and running finally. Totally forgot about this until I was on the way back from a Home Depot supply run but it was way too late by then anyway. I didn't have a chance to practice anyway. Also I've had severe network problems the last couple of days that I think I just finally tracked down to a faulty switch down in the basement. Multiple WAPs, switches, and a couple hundred feet of CAT5 runs makes for a fun troubleshooting exercise when you're doing it alone and without a cable tester.

should we recycle this weeks races for the next Forza 4 week since this week didn't really happen? They looked fun to me.

That works for me Pi.

Yep

Current times:

Race 1: 0:46.602
Race 2: 1:47.599 clean/1:47.071 with very small dirty
Race 3: 1:17.262

In other news, I have 4 different D350 Mazdas now in the club garage. All are capable of lapping Laguna Seca in under 1:50 (I think I got all of them under 1:49, but I couldn't swear to it). That new fastest clean lap is in the RX-7, though my dirty lap record is still in the Miata.

Updated next 2 weeks of racing in the OP.

Oh, we switched to Horizon for this week. I'm going to go down and practice in a minute. The wife was traveling so I've been playing Mr. Mom and haven't had time to put in. It's been hard to go away from the new PC rig too.

Back from vacation today so I've missed everything going on. I don't have Forizon so I won't be joining this race, but I ought to be up for the next F4 run.

Game's up, invites sent to GWJ Forizon Club.

Just me and SaintFaucet today, but we had some good wheel to wheel racing. I'm thinking about switching this up to Friday Nights (U.S. time) to see if more people will show. I have a memorial service this next Saturday for my old First Sergeant who just succumbed to cancer and I won't be able to do any racing.

I'll decide and change the OP accordingly.

Thanks SaintFaucet!

I'm on now. I thought this wasn't starting for another 15 minutes?

I'll hang around for a bit but if this is a bust today I'll go practice iRacing.

It was a pleasure. Sorry I wasn't more of a challenge initially but I honestly haven't played in about 2 months.

Sorry to hear about your First Sergeant. You have my condolences.

Geesh, leave it to me to use European time incorrectly. Ok, so it looks like this should have actually started two hours ago, 0700 Pacific Daylight Time.

I'll figure this out, apologies to all that I confused.

Oh, damn. My math was way off too.

I really wanted to make it today, but real car matters took precidence over virtual cars

I thought it was noon CST, so I had no clue. But then the caught let me know at 9:15 that there was a parent meeting at 11:30 that just ended. Sorry for the no-show.

I still haven't purchased Forizon, so I'm still only on the FM4 que.

Anyone going to be around for the race tomorrow?

I'm planning on it but man that's early for a Saturday. I should be on but the coffee may not have taken effect. All my practice time has been on iRacing though so I'll be coming in blind anyway.

So, 7 Pac, 8 Mtn, 9 Cen, 10 Eastern.

Cool Liquid. I'll hang around for a while then, just in case you need to hit snooze a few times.

Slept in more than I expected, catching up from insomnia the last couple of nights. Making coffee and grabbing a bite then I'll be on.

Ditto. Be there in a bit.

Was there a race today? The original post only mentions January 19th Horizon races.

I haven't even turned on my Xbox since before I left for vacation, I've probably forgotten everything I learned about racing since then. Not gonna let that hold me back, though.

yeah we raced today. replays are up on my storefront.

Currently, there is a race every week alternating between Forza 4 & Forza Horizon. Next week should be Horizon. I believe details are maintained in the first post. Looking forward to see you hop in! The more the merrier!

I will update soon, sorry, tough week.

So who is planning to be on today?

I only have Forza, so I will be delaying until next week.
