An interesting last race. I am not sure Alina wanted to pass me that way but I have to say that I am thankful that it happened. I wish all the best luck to the people who promoted. I hope you will drop in time to time for a chat. Good luck Luis, James, Csaba and Alina.

Also welcome to the new guys in AM 92. It has been a fairly good group here although a bit quiet.

Drop in. Say HI. Lets get this to be an active and friendly thread. Who do you think will be the people trying to promote this season. I will get some points for sure but I have no intention of promoting this season or even the next one. Who wants it this season. I suspect there will be more people fighting for promotion this season over the last one.

Well I am gonna get as much from the season as I can before my driver gets away. Bad sign-up date strategy, some mistakes with stat choice... Not likely to promote and not that I need it anyway. Good luck to everyone!

Hey as long as you can have a bit of fun. I am just trying to see who is going to promote this season and whether there is only 2-3 of them or 5-6 of them. You never know until well after race 3 with so many people changing drivers, going for early points etc.

I'm going to experiment with some testing this season, see what kind of new CCP fun I can come up with. Gaining Moti slowly so maybe I will gain some speed here and there.

Testing is unfortunately pretty expensive this season. Do you have the same driver as last season? It looks like you still have him and you might need to change him to have any longer term success based on what we talked about last season.

Is there any life out there? Who thinks they want to promote this season? I will not be promoting this season. Possibly next season or the one after that. It depends on how much money I can build up for heading back up to Elite again.

Glad to see some new faces here.  I like to drop by during the races to see people's comments but I usually do not see anyone around.  I should post myself to confirm that but I already talk to myself too much  :) 

And yes those were pretty big trains.  I always hate tracks like this because a bad qualifying or bad first lap and your race is largely over.  If I had it my way they would rate the OverTaking (OT) one level lower for all tracks and make passing a bit easier.

Looks like a lot of early blocking again. I was worried that by qualifying in 11th, I might get locked behind some blockers. The front two got open off the start and pulled a big lead that will last them the race. Hard to pick who will be in the points and DM will play a factor in the late race. I always hate when I am running in a good position and then have a DM with a couple laps to go and fall back 5-6 places. That has happened to me twice so far this season but this race looks like I am in good hands.

So what is everyone trying to do this season. I think our promoters will be pretty much locked in. I do not want to promote this season and perhaps not even next season. I still need to replace all my lost sponsors and that may take another season or two. I also need more than 6M in my bank account. I might have to change drivers because my current one is not well balanced although he is fast. Not a good driver for a long period but I can always change in PRO.

Anyone trying to promote who is not in the top 4 right now? Anyone in the top 4 who does not want to promote?

Is there any life out there? I think the top 4 are pretty much decided but Kirst looks to be a late outside horse. The next race or two will tell us if he is going for promotion. It looks like he loses his driver in another 4 races. Might have 17 behind that but I don't believe so.

Good luck on the last few races for people still trying to retain.

There are a number of ways to play the game Chris, all of which work. I would be happy to give some pointers if you wanted me to. Just send me a message and I can look over your package and suggest where you can make changes.

I have just changed out my driver for a much weaker one that I intend to take all the way to Elite. I have taken a driver from rookie to elite and now that the game is a bit different I wanted to see if I could do it again. To that end I will be much slower for a while. Generally the best way to play the game is to take a shorter term driver you only carry for a racing level or two. As an example, whatever driver you come in from rookie is capped at a preseason level of 85. People coming out of rookie often have drivers they should drop right away and pickup a much stronger driver from the 110OA cap and under. Here in Amateur (AM) things like talent are not too important, although my self I prefer a driver with 125 Talent of higher as you found out Chris on running a very low talent driver. But you do not need a driver with 200 talent and often because talent is such a heavy drain on OA you are better off to target other attributes like stamina and experience. Those are hard to come by but just do your best when picking a driver.

People that really do not think they are going to retain should grab a driver to take down with them. You can pick a driver with 85-90 OA but a big chunk of that Motivation. Just lose the last two races strongly and you will lose the Mot. which will drop your OA under the 85 OA cap, or should I say to the OA cap of 85. This lets you bid on drivers that not many people are looking at and the people in rookie cannot go after. That way you can pick a nice driver with middle talent, some good Conc and a bit of EXP and Stam and you will have a fast driver for next season. Just be sure to really lose the last races hard to lose the MOT. You will need to get under 30th place to lose a lot of MOT.
