    Initially, public roads in the village were used for the race course. In 1956 a permanent circuit for the race was built. The circuit's current layout has more or less been the same since 1971, although a chicane was installed at the uphill Esses in 1975 to slow cars through these corners, where there was a fatality during practice at the 1973 United States Grand Prix. The chicane was removed in 1985, but another chicane called the "Inner Loop" was installed in 1992 after a fatal accident during the previous year's NASCAR Winston Cup event. The circuit is known as the Mecca of North American road racing and is a very popular venue among drivers.

  7. Don't know why this one passed me by.

    I'll race it if I am home but am at a wedding on Saturday so i'm afraid I can't say with any certainty that i'll be there.

    @mcnasty1 I assume you are out? I'm guessing you probably want to conserve your wheel? I probably would. And I know that Silverstone race will be a big one. @Peter Hooper I think you said you were 50/50? What say we just run some F1 practice instead? I can be on later or earlier.

    Alright. I'll try to get on later, around 5-6pm? Maybe some F1 or pCARS.

    Yeah nan sounds good
     
  14. Didn't get back from wedding in time. I saw earlier that the race was cancelled so didn't rush away like I planned. Did you guys get together for any practice?

    Maybe run this one next week and @Dallas Pataska could be available for it?
     
  15. Can't make it don't finish work til 10pm and wouldn't be able to get on til 11 at earliest.
     
  16. We could do a later start if others can make it as well?

    Not sure who is up for this. I can do this race or F1 practice. August just may be the best two releases we have seen yet, but it will be hard to beat DiRT and pCARS.
     
  18. Stuck with the spider wheel at my parents place this weekend lol... might be down to join this epic combo tomorrow depending on the time though. Nowhere near as fast with this thing!
