Are tyres limited to whole race, meanst both qualis and both races, or we have 6 sets for each session! Maybe it would be cool to limit those to practice too, so we simulate real world, if that is the case, though.

I found some decent speed in race 1 after I learnt to drive these things. Ran out of time before I could get around Steve, though.
Got through the mess in race 2 almost undamaged and then spun off the track and rejoined the race dead last. Thought I'd keep going to see how it ends and had a nice scrap against three Toyotas in the closing stages. Good bit of fun
These were fun races. Had a great start in race 1 and was up close to the top 10, but a couple of small spins and just over driving dropped me back. Race 2 Q was worse than the first race, but overall the back of the grid was the same, minus Alberto. I managed to get through the melee of the first lap and came out in 7th and tried to maintain it for the rest of the race, but I was caught at some point by a Chevy that was in a whole other world of speed than the rest of us. I tried to settle back in but I had a few mistakes and Adam and Jukka and Company managed to catch up to me. Adam snuck by me in Turn 1 and I stayed with him for the next couple laps and figured out where I was faster than him. Finally had a run down the Backstraight and moved over to pass him going into the hairpin and managed to out brake myself and everybody got by me. I was stuck in 11th bummed that I wasn't gonna get a Top 10, when I came through the kink on the last lap and saw smoke on the right side of the track and then watched a car bounce back onto the racing line. I took a small chance and passed Martin on the inside at the hairpin, locked up again but managed to keep it together and passed him for the position.
Strange. BTCC was a major struggle for me, but these cars in AMS work just fine. Once I got used to lift-off oversteer, it became quite easy to drive. The problem was, that we had a Cockpit Party in the afternoon. Four guys, two girls and one child taking turns in my cockpit, doing runs in AC and Dirt Rally. It was an awesome afternoon, but to be honest, I was tired and not really sober when I joined the track in Argentina. But it was fun. That fight with Richard was just brilliant. Nice and clean, racing doesn't get much better than that. I was really washed out for the second race, so I lost a position to Austin, who was very fast towards the end. But having two p3 finishes moved me to p2 in overall ISO driver's standings, which feels damn good. Grats to Richard!
I sort of got stuck in that spot between groups of cars battling, for the most part. The few times I was able to go wheel to wheel, I really didn't have much for them. Felt like I wasn't able to find a run anywhere so most were just pulling away in the straights on me...probably over rotating, scuffing the tires.
Anyways, got a good view of some nice action ahead of me for both races, so that was fun. These FWD cars sort of frustrate me, in a challenging sort of way...but I enjoy them.
Love racing with this group! When I can keep up, it's always tough yet clean racing. Very few moments where I worry about the typical things which leaves a lot more time to concern myself with what is happening on track.
Couple of hairy moments squeezing through some incidents...that was fun
...looking forward to more racing here at ISO in the near future!
