I have fallen out of love with iracing again. A couple of races where i seemed to be a magnet for other people's accidents saw my SR rating plummet. Got myself back up to a D 3.54, is that enough to get promotion to a C?

Yes, if you wait until the end of the season, you'll get promoted with that SR, providing you've met the MPR.

New members can get the first three months for the price of one month I think. If it's still going it'll be on the iRacing main page.

Ok, well I've joined and have observed that the ford spec racer is so twitchy - My best laptime is 1:00.1 around Lime Rock Park but I'm spinning every other lap just about. Don't dare try a race until I've mastered running for at least 10 clean laps

Won my first race :D That certainly was fun, my first race I was taken out twice and was very frustrated, but the next race was tremendous...it's so brilliant being able to race against people of similar ability. Can't wait to rank up and try some of the better cars. Still lots of room for improvement for me though, my car control leaves a lot to be desired. One might call me a bit 'raw' :p

My best lap in the Jetta at New Hampshire RC, 1.16.197, only 3 tenths behind 2 times Jetta cup champ Wyatt Gooden and third in qualifying of the whole series at the moment, so I'm very happy with it :)

You have auto-blip turned on, n00b n00b n00b!

You are a noob. Yes in all cars I do use auto-blip, but you should have known that the Jetta has an automatic DSG transmission, if you did abit of searching you would have seen this:

Driving a car with a twin-clutch/DSG transmission
Twin-clutch equipped cars do not have a clutch pedal; the clutch is engaged and disengaged automatically.

I wish I'd saved the replay from our race on Friday Byron when I managed a 1:15.953 trying to catch you back up. It's still the WR race lap t the moment!
