    My qualifying day for round 1 has arrived! I will be LIVE at 2pm (in about 1 hour 20 mins).

    Managed to get my qualification done at Jacarapagua, Brazil. It's going to be a tough race in close proximity to the AI. So being 5th on the grid will help a lot! I just couldn't get the last sector right as good as the Ferrari's.

    All season I will be raising money for Rethink Mental Illness with "rewards" giving me driving forfeits. For more information check out my charity page: https://tiltify.com/@woodee/racing-for-mental-illness

    61 laps tomorrow, I hope to see the chequered flag this time!

    It was close but I have POLE for today's Formula 1979 100% Distance race at Laguna Seca!! Raising money for rethink mental illness.

    It is going to be very tough to stay in front of the chasing pack as this car does not like a full fuel tank!

    Remember I am accepting donations to charity which give me grid penalties (reward deemed before tomorrow). For donations during the race, a specific reward can make me pit within 5 laps. Give me a challenge!!

    Join me on Twitch today for 82 laps around Laguna Seca (2pm UK time)!

    Unfortunately I have suspected Thrustmaster wheel problems but I am hoping it just a technical thing and I can be back for next week's race!! I can't afford a new wheel :(

    My TS PC wheel will be heading back to Thrustmaster in the coming week and I have no replacement. I can't afford to buy a new part of my simrig for a DD wheel. I wouldn't be able to afford a DD wheel either!!

    My offline season will be on pause until I receive my wheel back which would be at least 3-4 weeks from now.

    Now I have my Thrustmaster wheel back and it seems to work... I will be restarting my season next weekend. 100% race will be exhausting after a few weeks break!! Next track is Jerez.

    Updated my calendar in the first post... my wheel is working (fingers crossed) and I have FINALLY got my streaming PC to run rF2 again (it'll probably break tomorrow now I have said that!).

    69 (NICE) laps around Jerez... going to be tough!!

    23rd on the grid for tomorrow's Spanish GP!

    69 laps on a busy track with 27 cars! An hour and a half in vr driving, can I keep going unscathed?! Tune in tomorrow

    As I was out yesterday (first time in months!) watching some bikes, I will be doing my qualifying (reduced from 45 to 30 mins) today just before the full distance race start.

    Weather looks to be cloudy and maybe a little wet in France today so who knows whether it will actually drop on the track. Should spice things up? Rain has threatened at a few races but never really delivered so far.
