    We have a new way of reporting and punishing incidents in the Racing Club, using an infractions system - read more here




    You are actively encouraged to use this system - we like to keep driving standards high - so if you feel you were wronged in any way during an event simply send the event organiser a private message detailing the incident including a youtube video. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.
     
  2. Yes we are putting you in a fire breathing 'Stang at the site of the Rolex 24 hours at Daytona!

    If this doesn't get you off the couch and in the cockpit then you might want to check yourself for a pulse!

    AMERICAN WEEK continues with a truly American event!

  19. Well I HAD a screenshot of my first ever event win, but my computer decided to eat it. If anyone has one would you mind posting it? I want to save it :(

    Beautiful races. Thank you gents for setting it up!

    First race I had a phenomenal start and went from 7th to 1st before getting through the first turn. Stayed there for a few laps then fell to 2nd and battled with Eric Nelson the entire race. Jeez he's hard to keep behind you. Luckily for me his to-the-limit chasing of me put him off track twice, securing me(barely) in 2nd.

    Race two I started 7th again, was the first to launch, but I gave it too much oomph and slid down the hill a little bit. After straightening out I managed to follow Glenn up into 2nd and past him a little after. Held 1st for most of the race, battling with Glenn. Had to slide the back end out a few times to keep him behind me. We managed to keep close to one another and I think realized at the same time we needed to ditch the train behind us. So we put our duel aside and drafted each other along the back straight to give us a nice cushion between 3rd to continue our fight. I somehow managed to keep the fast bastard behind me for most of the race, but the last lap along that infamous back straight, he closed the .7second gap and just out of the embankment passed me on the outside to win .2 ahead. Although I hate you for it:tongue:, it was a well-earned win, Glenn and I raise my glass to you.

    Beautiful car/track combo. Those 'Stangs sure can slide.
