    I won't promise I won't exit every corner backwards but why not? I'm in.

    Yup. Thought you might have had something to do with this. I VERY much appreciate the track choice also.

    This track is bumpier than any stage at thousand lakes rally. I'm pretty sure those brake bumps are a bit over done. Yet to find good period on board footage.
    Giant challege to keep that turbo rocket on track and find the smoothest line around that paved field. I had to bring out formula abarth to learn the track :).

    Sign me in provisionally. I'm not sure I'll have time to learn the track or get used to the car. I have last driven the 98T when it was just released, and back then it was pretty hard to keep it on track. Especially in 100% boost mode, which gives you maybe 2 or 3 laps before your engine blows :).

    People who raced these back in the day must have had balls of steel.

    We should be finishing this race right before the F1 cars start in Texas. Should be a good warmup!

    I'll give it a try. Never driven the track and I'll just try to stay out of the way if I suck.

    Personal goal achieved, lost it four times but kept it off the armco. I think I deserve a beer.

    It was kinda fun. I almost felt like I was cheating because I had ABS and TC on, but I thought it was better to do that than do donuts in the infield grass all race long :).
