    Default 2013 Calabogie Gentleman's GT Race Series

    There is a point system already in place and will carry over from last season. Only a 1 point difference between places so things can change dramatically even in the last race

    As for tires the Sony define the class specifically. Your lap times are what define you, so you can use tire choice to zone in where you want to be

    Yeah but I still think balls-out Michelin cup tires, (v710 and R6 too to a certain extent) aren't really grassroots or gentlemanly.

    Totally agree. I think I'll sell my car to get a Fiesta and run GTlast

    But back to SRS mode, I'll try it out with NT05 and if I'm always 2-3 seconds behind my target(s) I'll step up...maybe

    Yep - this is the best "club" type track event anywhere!

    If an old guy in a shiny ole Chrysler 300C can wrestle his 4500 lb beast around in the GT series and not hit anyone . . .

    - Then you young fellers in your sports cars should do just fine . . .

    Ya gotta come out and try this - at least once in your life!

    If you are a 'noobie' to competitive driving, this series may be a good place to get some experience.

    Some of us with lots of competitive track experience are very willing to coach newcomers - on basic car prep for the track; learning the circuit; learning how to survive in close proximity with other drivers . . .

    In general, how to have a great time, especially if you are short on experience and don't want to spend a small fortune to get some serious driving under your belt.

    I'll be watching your lines for sure...we both have heavy four door cars with gobs of torque. I'll have real tires this season (which hopefully will not be too ungentlemanly) so hopefully I can tackle the corners a little more aggressively. I have been following Greg's lead so far but that Vette of his is stupid faster than mine...I'll just have to follow his advice and not his car ;-)

    LOL! Keeping up with Greg is no easy task! I hope to be at New Jersey Motorsport Park for some fast lapping in the middle of April. A buddy of mine down there also runs a G8 and we take very similar lines.

    Be quite happy to play lead and follow with you at Bogie

    NR has some YouTube vids worth checking out for sure.

    Very entertaining until he calls me a backmarker.

    Then it sucks.

    Thanks! Glad to be here. You were on fire in the rain - in our final race! Unbelievable driving.

    Now that wasn't very nice of me . . . If you come out again next season, I promise never to refer to you that way.
