    Hi RD racers,

    I am just getting back into racing after a long time not turning a wheel.

    I used to drive GTR 2, Race 07 and rFactor mostly against ai, my nephew or a few friends. I did a few non-league races over on No Grip, including a 2hr GTR2 endurance.

    My involvement with RD was mostly in providing league posters, site banners and car liveries back in the day. So much so that I spent too much time in Photoshop and not enough time on the track. :)

    My way back into racing is Game Stock Car Extreme which I have just purchased and I am enjoying a lot. I prefer minis, tourers, v8s and GTs to open wheelers but will race anything. I also have rFactor 2 and Project Cars but not done much with them.

    I am not particularly fast (always looking to improve) but I was always a clean and fair racer.

    My plans are to spend some time practicing then looking to purchase Automobilista and a premium membership on RD so I can try one-off events, for starters.

    Look out for me on the forums and on the track.

    Cheers

    Doug

    *edit* my current pc setup is triple monitor and G27 wheel which is a lot better than what I had when I first joined RD in 2009. :)

    Thanks. I have not been a particularly active one for a few years, though!

    Sweet livery, a hint of Scottish saltire.:whistling:
    Mr. C often joins us in the R3E club and posts setup advice.

    Yes - I pm'd Mr C to say "hi" the other day.

    I've done a few flag themed liveries over the years, more than a few of them Saltires. :)
