    hahaha...if you're having fun in rookies mx5, you're gonna have a lot more fun once you get to a C license or better. Most fun i've had there has been in skip barber, GT3 (love/hate) and grand touring cup. The multi-player and VR experience is really some of the best out there.

    dunno, the chap who started the thread is new, so it wouldn't apply.

    @gasoline12 : I would second the skip barber / gt3 recommendation. The basic rule: the more participants a series has (and skip / gt3 are among the top series participation-wise), the likelier you are to get a full grid of players your level. There are other threads here, where we have given new guys a lot of advice, might be interesting:
