    @Bjorn de Haas
    C'mon buddy, you just have to do it:)
    Its old school, little downforce, cross ply tyres.
    Think of it as part car and part speed boat when you need to turn it in.
    Lift off, point, manage so that roughly the middle of the car is going where you want, then Apex.
    Matej has a real gift for this car.
    Ive even done a Bruce McLaren tribute skin.
    Once you have driven a Howston at Lemans there is no bar you can't walk in and stand at.

    I guess this will be a battle to see who will finish last. :D:p

    This is not a easy car but it is one of the most rewarding. So much fun to just complete a lap without crashing. Even if most of us can't master it the joy of taming the beast is enough and give us a big smile.
