Sooo yeah...I’m getting the feeling that Mount Panorama isn’t a very enjoyed track. Welp…
Special thanks to Chewbakkah, Mr Plankton, and Higu for streaming the race!


I hope everyone had fun this series. I know it’s kind of frustrating to participate in a series where there’s team-based points involved and there’s the running risk that your partner may not show up much, or at all. But the reason I tried including teams in this was to not only add a different element to the normal races we had been doing before, but also to foster teamwork between members of the Jalopnik/Oppo community (quite possibly those you many not have really socialized with before), and for everyone learn from each other and improve themselves overall. And I hope that everyone grew as part of this series.

Between dontbethatguy and myself, we developed the setup for our car. He managed to find the combinations of parts to provide the best power and stay within the PI limits, while I drove and tuned and tweaked the setup to fit each track. (BTW, if you want to see the build used for Bathurst, it’s here). We also spent time learning off of each other’s driving lines and habits. I hope everyone else got to work the same way.

Thank you again to everyone who joined in this series. I hope to see you and more new racers in series to come. I’ll be backing off running series for the next few months while Chewbakkah/citizennick and Viggen run their POS Racing spec series and V8 Supercars series respectively, but I’ll be back with another set of series up for vote after then.
