New colours for 2009

The new season is upon as and I’ve updated the paintschemes of my cars for 2009. Just the road series cars have been changed, from the purple & yellow of 2008 to a black & amber for 2009.

I’ve also bought the Impala SS, the top tier stock car in the iRacing stable. I’ve had a handful of practice sessions and one fun race in it and I am extremely impressed!

This season I am going to be concentrating on the Star Mazda series first and foremost, but also trying to make a strong showing in the Chevy Silverado series on the oval side.

The Mazda will be difficult – the car has a variety of advanced setup parameters and it’ll take more time than ever before to get a really well matched setup. Same thing with the trucks really, in order to do it justice I need to be able to develop my own setups to make it fulfilling.

One big change for 2009 is that I think I am going to go back to the ‘one race and done’ approach to each racing week. I think I enjoyed doing that for the Solstice season more than I enjoyed the ‘multiple races per week’ approach of the Skippy season.

My goals for this upcoming season are :

  1. Finish Mazda series with more than 800 points
  2. Get a win in the Mazda
  3. Compete in at least eight racing weeks with the Silverado truck
  4. Lead at least a single lap in the oval discipline (it STILL eludes me!)
  5. Achieve a B 4.99 rating in both road and oval disciplines
  6. Have an ‘incident per race’ stat of less than 2.0
  7. Finish the season with an iRating above 3000

A lot of goals there – the hardest one will be the ‘inc per race’ stat. The Mazda races are longer so more chance to mess up!
