    Wish I was Hans, working nights Mon - Fri next week and then off for a bit of a holiday. May make it back it time for the Cortina night race on the 30th but I'm not 100%.

    Simon:)

    Nothing concrete, just going back up north visiting family and old friends. Definitely be a stop at Mallory Park on Sunday 26th though for a bit of historic saloon car action from the 50's, 60's, 70's. :woot:
    I'll take me camera:D

    Simon:)

    I've never really tried to drive one of these monsters, so this could be a real challenge.
    I'll keep Hans company.

    Since we have such a small field for this, in an attempt to maybe encourage a few more, I have reduced the length of this event to 20 laps (half the original).
    These brutes will be hard enough to drive, so maybe the shorter race will be more fun.

    C'mon guys, hop in and try these out, they are insane to drive and the sound is awesome.
     
  15. good idea Warren :)
     
  16. i will be there . it looks like a good race tonight so lets get some more ppl in. it sure is more fun then the stcc add on i just tried.

    That was great fun, there were only 4 of us but I enjoyed it.
    These GT40's are seriously difficult cars to drive.

    Hans, Amir, Ben, and I decided to run two 10 lap races to provide more interest (also in case we wreck the cars early lol).
    Amir showed immediately that he was very good in these monsters, some very quick laps and good car control. Ben was obviously quick but needed some practice to get used to this beast of a car.

    In Race 1, after running with Amir and Ben for a while, I waited for Hans to keep him company. I had some huge laughs following Hans, as he kept hitting the gas too quick with some spectacular spins. Sorry for laughing so much but it was so funny to watch. :hug:

    Race 2, Ben left but we decided to test Amir some more, and see how far he could win by. Unfortunately, Amir and Hans managed to crash each other off the line (someone hit the gas too hard again??). So I decided to give Amir something to chase to keep him tested. Sure enough he rounded me up and pulled off a neat pass after about 8 laps, but he then got too enthusiastic trying for a spectacular time, and lost it.

    It was still a heap of fun, thanks guys. You don't get to drive a car like this in real life, but it sure was a blast. Gotta love that sound. :D
     
  18. that was indeed great fun. the 2nd race was a real fight with warren and i was sliding all over the place.realy enjoyed this one warren :peace:. it is realy sad that only 4 of us raced tonight but i hope it is mainly because the stcc pack came out. btw as we discussed earlier let's have a new league with the 70's car. it will be good that i promise

    First race I used the setup from Amir ,good not handle that car was all over the place but not on the track,an with Warren behind me I look to much in my mirror
    and make it worse then it already was,but driving behind Warren is always useful

    Race 2 was allot better(except my start,hit Amir sorry fore that) to eager to get a fast start,this time my trainings setup that was better for me did change the brake bias to 60-40 (thanks Warren) and hit only one gravel trap and one time a wall,did my PB 1.57.7xx (in training last evening 1.58.8xx)

    So I had a use full evening and I am glad that I make somebody laugh:yo:

    I am with Amir about the cars of the 70 series ,we have done a lot of races with the 60's now, a new challenge is welcome....

    Something else, I get a almost new Computer this weekend(1 year old) to replace my old rick(from 2002!) so I have some work to do setting all my
    things over,I have all my games on a second hard disk ,I hope that I can switch that to the new Comp. would make the sings a bit easy fore me..
