    Yeah she's a curvy one. I don't think I've tried any reverse layouts in GTL before and found it quite interesting.

    :D Well i nearly missed it:redface: ... but got there 5 mins before qually... i knew the track id done enough laps .. otherwise i would of been in trouble...
    Well i did it i managed both races with the direct shifter, i missed a few gears but i was ok ..id done it with the mini but that doesn't count...
    well done all who tackled this track.. i really liked it and it was a good combo with the 906
    i messed up the qually right near the end so started from the rear of the pack no probs with a small field:( (this combo deserved more, )
    Race 1 was a bit messy at the start with a couple of spins so i slowed it down a bit and set some nice laps with the occasional missed gear:redface:
    different lines and different speeds into corners can be deceptive to start with. I am a early breaker and try to and get the speed on the straights .. Knut brakes a bit later and we touch.. we see Jacob driving off into the distance and set off after him..
    we touch again i though id left enough room for Knut to go through but there a little rub and im spinning again ...i followed Knut this time and slowly started to see him pull a gap then i missed my gears locked the rear and spun .. trying to hard for the night ..i had done better lap times but it just wasn't felling good so it was a case of make it to the finish.
    Race 2 was good fun also but my dreaded gear change cost me so many times as i had the pace to do better .. we had some good battles and the laps quickly rolled by..
    Which brought up the topic of a longer race in the future 90 mins with pit stop :thumbsup:
    Has any body done any night racing ... any interest ... ive only done it against AI ..:whistling:
    All in all a short but fun night well done jacob and Knut ... it hard work with Knut catching every lap .... unlucky for Jacob he nearly got a double ..:(
    good fun was had long may it continue :D

    When I was testing and setting up my old mod I used to drive around Nordschleife at night without headlights. Was so much fun. I don't think that would work for an online race though!

    Come to think of it, one of my first races at RD was a night race in the Abarth. I think one of the problems is that it becomes a bit difficult to have close racing, and if you loose the headlights you're in trouble. Could be fun to try one again though.
