Hello, how’s everyone doing? Hope you all are happy and safe. Welcome to my 21st blog! I have good news and bad news for you. The bad news is, I decided to take a break from ACC. I feel bored of racing on ACC, been racing at the same tracks over and over and I’m at the point where I need to take a break from it. But, don’t worry. I will still finish my active championship on ACC!
And the good news? I will focus more on iRacing! Yeah, I’ve been practicing on iRacing lately, I improved but still need to learn more. I feel like a total newbie here. I need to focus more to get better, that’s why I leave ACC.
Anyway, I just uploaded my LFM race on my YouTube. Please check it out! It was a great race, I can’t believe I gained 7 positions at Barcelona! You all know that I hate this track, right? So yeah, it was a great achievement for me to finish at P5 in this race. So this week I only had 2 races, I didn’t really stream that much this week, I got a lot of work to do during the weekdays, and I tried to finish my rig upgrade on the weekend.
GT Meister GT3 Championship Round 3 – Nurburgring
Raced at my favorite track, and drove my favorite car. What could go wrong? Welcome to the 3rd round of GT Meister Championship! We’re racing at Nurburgring this round. I took an extra hour for some practice simply because I enjoy this track so much. My pace during the Free Practice was great, consistency also great. I was so ready for the race! But, my qualifying was kinda bad. I was 1 second slower than my normal pace, I don’t know why, it was just me throwing my quali. That put me in P21, basically I was at the back of the grid, but anything can happen in the race, right? I kept my heads up and tried to gain position as much as I could. First lap was crazy, everybody tried to survive the T1 carnage, I remember exactly that I went 3 wide from T1 all the way to T2, and it was totally packed. I had to be super aware of my surroundings and tried not to hit anyone.
I survived the lap 1 carnage, I even climbed up position. Pace was great, and yeah. I did great throughout the race. No spin, no crash, whatsoever. I finished at P14. I gained 7 positions at this 1 hour race. It was a great race!
I realized that I suck at Qualifying, but I always survived the lap 1 carnage and I gained positions. That’s what matters most.
Next round is Misano, not my strong track so I have to spend more time practicing. Wish me luck for the upcoming race, I hope I will survive.

Thursday iRacing stream
I was so excited to get into the race in the new season! I got promoted to B class, which means I can finally race in VRS sprint series, endurance, and many more! There are a lot of interesting series in B class, and this is the first time I’ll run the full season on iRacing, can’t wait to see my progress on iRacing. It’s gonna be hard, trust me. But I believe I will be a better driver at the end of season 3.
This week I’m doing the GT3 fixed series, we’re racing at Hockenheim. It’s a great track! This is one of my favorite tracks for sure. The hairpin is one of my favorites. Can you believe that? Haha But it’s a night race. Oh no! First time racing at night time on iRacing, one word to describe the night race here : DARK. Yes, it was super dark during the race, I had to be extra careful cuz this track literally had no lights around. It’s hard to see the apex, you have to be super familiar with it. I was nervous to get to the race sessions. I had no idea what’s gonna happen at the night race. This was the first time I raced at night on iRacing. My friend Adam helped me on my first race. Big thanks! So the first race was…… bad. Literally. I punted someone by accident, I didn’t mean to do that. It was me mis-judged his moves at the hairpin. I also spun and went off track. But the good thing is. I was at P4! I secured my position and kept pushing.
When the race was only 2 minutes left, I got disconnected from the server! It never happened before on my side. This was the first time I got disconnected in the middle of the race.
I can’t finish the race. I finished at P10, it sucks. I could’ve finished at P4 but yeah.. that’s unfortunate. I lost some SR and iRating because I had some contact and went off track.
I didn’t give up! I registered for the next session, I wished that I’ll do better at the next race. While waiting for the next session, Adam helped me to analyze my mistakes and where to improve. I can see where I did wrong, I felt so bad. But it’s okay, I take that as a lesson. That’s a part of learning curves. The 2nd race was fine, I survived the T1 carnage and I can see myself getting better in this session. I tried to follow my friend’s tips and advice, I tried to improve my racecraft, keep my consistency and minimize any contact and went off track. I finished at P5. It was a great race!
And I got a nice surprise during my stream, gamer muscle visited my stream and raided my stream as well. It was a great moment! I look up to his streams and contents to learn how to get better in sim racing. Also my good friends were there to support me, I can’t thank you enough! Seriously, it means a lot to me, and I’m so grateful to have all of you in my life. I wouldn’t be here without your support.

So guys, that’s it for now. I’m super grateful to have you all in my life. Seriously. If I look back to last year.. I can’t even finish a 15 minutes race, I’m not confident of my racing skill, I was so shy to talk to the camera and start streaming.What I have now and what I achieved so far… idk what to say. Can’t believe I am in this position right now, where I stream everyday, I’m not shy on the camera, I enjoy talking with you all. Wow.
We’re not there yet. I still want to go faster and more aggressive, and I want to win another championship. So yeah, I still need to train more and push harder. I will make you all proud. Any wins, any progress is all for you. Thank you.
