    At last - I thought my RD days were over since I can't lift the T300/Omega wheelstand over to the sofa now. :(

    But all is not lost :thumbsup: my extensive recent training on Forza Horizon 3 has honed my controller skills to the extent that I can wipe 100% of the opposition off any given track and travel cross country at 245 mph in a Dodge Dart with a V12/4WD upgrade :ninja::ninja:

    So be afraid fellow back-markers, the Joyster might be returning to a racetrack near you :devilish::devilish::sleep:

    Best thing I've read all day! :laugh: Had a bit of a boring day so it's always nice to come onto the forums and see what shenanigans people are up to. :D

    Great club we have here guys. Great races, great people, lots of fun. What's not to like? :)

    According to our favorite game producer, J-F Chardon, there's a new patch very likely to release next week, with the M6 confirmed ready for release, so we'll have some goodies ready for you guys for the weekend after next. :thumbsup:

    Don't worry mate! It seems that its not that easy to spell or pronounce my name! So my mostly english speaking former colleagues and even my brother in law (btw. he's from Lincolnshire and had 25 years to learn :D) couldn't pronouce it well :roflmao:
    So just stick to the shortform "Uli"
    cause everyone does ;):laugh:

    Pit stops!!!! Now there is a great source of mayhem. Most people are not aware of the incorrect settings required or how easy it is to be disqualified. This is a great technique if you have been lapped to many times that it is getting embarrassing. This would require a separate course

    A rare insight into the quality of training on offer comes in the form of this bootleg video taken at a recent session of the RDBMTS:
