    The track is build with various parts from other tracks ,So guess the parts...

    I start with two easy parts:

    Monaco: Harbour an Tunnel

    Bathurst: first uphill corner

    There must all so some easter eggs to find..

    Just done a few laps of the track - it's really a weird mix - but very likeable. See you all on Friday.

    It is an unusual track, with hints of Bathurst and Monaco (as Hans said) plus the first corner reminds me of Brands, and theres also a sniff of Ridge Racer (though that could just be a little nostalgia creeping in). I like it.#

    Just checking it is the Roadsport Academy Cats too.

    What laptimes are you boys putting in around here, then?

    Alex, in the events I run, we don't talk about laptimes ahead of the night. It's just a personal preference of mine.

    My reasons for this are,
    i) that virtually everyone's best times are set on an empty track with no compromise on lines, which you won't get on a busy track
    ii) that posting lap times can (not necessarily will, but I've seen it happen) lead to people striving for a tenth here and there, and getting into bad habits (cuts, dangerous lines etc.) that could cause other drivers problems during a race.
    iii) that the spread of relative speeds in the group always throw up people for you to have a race with, no matter of the laptime.
    iv) that who's to say whether someone's telling the truth anyway, or whether a really quick time - that the person might never have ever got close to again - could discourage some of the slower drivers from even competing.

    It's just that I like the prime motivation of my events to be fun, so we keep it light on that side of things.
