    It's really sad to see how we've gone from 30 people on a grid of GT cars down to 5 in just a couple of weeks. Let's hope things improve again (I think the events next week might be enticing!) Thank you everyone who signed up for continuing to support the club.

    And sorry to be absent with such low numbers but I can't make it today as I'm just plain exhausted after a hectic day. Please vote to quali when it is time (and only then) and if you spin in lap 1, please please don't just quit and give up. It's even more important with low numbers. Get back on track - others make mistakes too and there's still a chance for some quality racing even if it isn't for first place. And there's always race 2 only 20 minutes later.

    Have a good one, and sorry again for my absence.

    It was a nice race. :thumbsup:

    Race 1 had the pole but had a bad start and Andres took the lead. After a few laps battling with him i had a big crash into the pits. Took heavy damage and a penalty for speeding in the pits(it wasn't like i could avoid it) :D
    Anyway i continued an made it to the finish in third.

    Race 2 only three people but more interesting race. Again started first and stayed there until the checkered flag. Since Andres was a few seconds behind i couldn't rest and had to maintain a fast pace while managing the tires.

    It's sad to see these GT races loosing people. It may not be the best mod but it is fun to drive and we have several cars to choose.

    All the gear, no idea...

    i revisited this blancpain mod tonight and it feels like a lot of the gsce car mods in that the feedback from the car is very limited, seems like once the car gets upto speed im loosing all sense of grip/weight...is this just the way this mod feels or do i need to alter some settings?
    has anyone tried the FIA GT3 2010 mod? not as many cars to choose from but the ffb/car feel is pretty much on par with the games stock content.

  12. Great and my best races!
    In the race 1 i took the lead in the start, I started to push hard because joao was pushing me until joao joao erred. From there got the rhythm and I checked the distance with srinath until the checkered flag.

    In the race 2 i started badly lagging behind srinath and joao pulled me over 3 seconds. i overtook srinath and started to pull very hard, cutting the distance with joao something and hoping to joao made a mistake but this did not happen. In the final stretch i was already problems with the tires and joao took more advantage. i finished second ahead of srinath.

    Incredible races and a shame that more people did not participate. Congrats Joao and Srinath
