    When I try clicking on the link for Thruxton, I get " Invalid File ID". Anyone else having that?

    Sorry for double-post.

    When I go to Page 3 in the track list and click on Thruxton there, I get the same:S Is it currently not available?

    Still doesn't. Any other place where I can get it?

    EDIT: Very strange. It didn't work in FF, but when I tried with IE, I could download Thruxton:confused:

    At least I have it now.

    I can't believe there is only 5 sign ups. Mine's in provisionally, if it doesn't improve I'll be signing out and doing another event.

    I have the same problem with the downloads. I have to use Internet Exploder to download some files. Everything else works.

    Q - 2nd Place

    Race - Got a good start, built up a 5s lead over first 2 laps. At the end of the straight braking into the chicane, USB drivers reset so I had brakes, steering and pedals, but the shifter is connected to a different wheel - no response from that, so I had no gearshifts, so I couldn't slow down in time and I slammed into a wall. First time ever my PC has let me down in a race :(

    Not doing Race 2 as I see no fun whatsoever in driving around a track on my own for 20 mins.

    Not saying you were - but that's the nature of Thruxton, cars tend to string out. Plus, it was pretty low attendance.

    Yeah, you got a point there. I was about 1.5 seconds behind you when I got lag and dropped a bit more.

    2nd race to start soon.

    Won race 2 from 8th and last place, but it was Wayne's, actually.

    At the start, I went up to 4th, and took 3rd and 2nd soon after.

    Wayne and me started chasing each other until about 2 laps to go when he spun after the start/finish chicane and crashed:(

    It was a good race though, hopefully with more cars next time:)

    4th first race and 3rd in the second.

    Really enjoyed both races as a Porsche "virgin" and loved the cars, nice and slippery :)

    Fab battles in race 1 & 2 with Valerio & thanks Wayne for the set up.
