    Time for another GTL fun night, we'll continue the theme of casual fun and trying out the diifferent cars available in GTL.
    This time, we use only the GTC 65 cars, but two races using a different car for each race.
    We have divided the class into two groups:

    American Power: AC Cobra, Chev Corvette, Shelby Daytona, Shelby GT350, TVR Griffith

    Euro Finesse: Austin Healy, Ferrari 275, Jaguar E Type, Lotus Elan, Lotus Elite, Mercedes 300SL, Renault Alpine

    You must pick one from the American Group for Race 1, and one from the Euro Class for Race 2.

    Notes:

    Important: Please pay special attention to Racedepartment's Golden Rule: If you hit another driver and disadvantage him, we expect you stop and let the other driver regain his position on you. If this costs you many places (eg first few laps) then consider this a penalty for your driving infringement. Doing this shows respect to your fellow drivers and will encourage drivers to be more careful. Please use some care when letting the other driver regain position, do not immediately stop your car on the driving line where it can cause further accidents. Not following this rule will result in your membership of the racing club being terminated at once!

    Sorry chaps but I'm going to miss this one. As I'm working nights all over Christmas week. That weekend (Thurs - Sun) is the only time I'll get to see family before New Year's. :( Hope you all have fun, will see you all in the New Year - so Merry Christmas to all you all if I don't get to chat again:beer:

    It's got the big ass ford V8 under the bonnet, so technically "American Power" is still valid. :good: And Blackpool power doesn't sound quite so....charismatic. It sounds like the company that runs the Illuminations.

    My Euro car was a toss up between 2, so if you want the Alpine, I'll switch back :good:
     
  7. well, if the groupings remain as is, then i want them both! :greed:

    but there's nowt against you having similar/same choices too.... :preggers:

    It was literally a toss of the coin this morning between them for me, so I'd already decided to switch about if there were any other takers for either. :good:

    Yeah I know, but we needed to get some more cars into the American group to balance the numbers a bit. So I went for "partly" American, besides it fitted more competitively and power wise with the Yankee stuff.


    EDIT: BTW I'll go with Shelby GT350, Austin Healey.
     
  10. :D

    cool cool cool!

    Stuart, I estimate that Practice will start at 6.30AM Sydney time. Does that mean you can't make it???

    I'm having to officially downgrade my attendance status to "doubtful" :bad: - I'm going live with a fairly major project that evening (moved back from Wednesday), and I can't guarantee what time I'm getting home - 2nd race should be OK, first race is under threat though. :(

    I think Tim's right there, the week before Christmas is never going to be overflowing with people, I'm just gutted I might be missing out because of poxy work.

    Yep, I wouldn't read too much into a lower turn out in the week before Christmas.
    Just look at the sign up's for the Abarth Event in the new year. The future of GTL still looks shiny.
