    Not a sign up (yet) but I seem to remember this track only supporting up to 8 drivers, I hope its been updated and I'm wrong, but I thought I should mention it.

    I made the 24 car patch a while ago, it was dismissed at the time (mrrr).. I'll look it up.

    EDIT: couldn't find it but i'll make a new one. The GDB that comes with the track is anyway flawed, big time.. There's NO possibility to race on this track without a patch, the attrition is 3 times normal so you'll tires are pretty much at 300% wear rate, the race is fixed length (3 laps or 120minutes), so is qualy... I'll test the patch and send it to you guys. I'll repack the track and release a patch for those that have downloaded the track.

    Okay, here's the updated track: http://cream.galleria.fi/RD/Tracks/DAFTopGear_0.99b_fix_by_CreamK.zip

    There were so many error that i decided to re-release this package. The original was in permanent beta (0.99a), my update basically makes it 1.0 but since original authors can not be connected, i didn't want to claim that this is out of beta.. And there still may be some bugs but didn't find any that would stop this race ;)

    EDIT: oh yeah, you get to see Race07 beatiful sunset in Practice1.. It's rarely used since it has horrible bugs with elevation changes and shadows but in this case it was viable, ie, track is completely flat and no shadow casters.....
