As it has turned out, this was my final week at iRacing - at least for the forseeable future.
I couldn't resist having a last crack at the Skip Barber series there. The much heralded "new surface model" and Motegi.
While NSM was somewhat of a disappointment in practise - it really doesn't make much difference when race distances are generally very short and track condition doesn't seem to follow a race weekend principle - Motegi was a joy. I very much enjoyed the track.
The mid pack racing was still a knife fight in a telephone box from the lights, though.
I put in faster laps later, but this hotlap is a snapshot of the time I was starting to feel good around the track.
