    Great to see GTL on the Tuesdays! :)
    I have other events next week and have committed myself to only 2 events a week. So please put me on reserve.

    I just had my first quick test for this event, I couldn't resist pulling the Mini out of the garage. :in-love:

    Stuart, these are three top little tracks for the Mini, all with a few "challenges" to make it fun. That tiny little chicane at Limerock will be a hoot, the first couple of times I went through it I was on two wheels. :sinister:

    Hope we get a good roll up, this should be fun, and certainly different to the GT40's from last week. The Mini is much easier to drive and everyone should be close. :good:

    I hope that's not a euphemism. :dont-know:

    Limerock's always cool, and that chicane keeps it just that little bit different from the second half of the Mountain course which we've all driven in Evo a good few times now, so you need to keep switched on :good:

    Hockenheim short is a criminally underused short course - I had a race there in testing where, even despite being bumped off circuit by the AI twice (costing me about 12 sec total), I spent 10 laps hunting down a Shelby GT350, and just finished 4 sec behind it.

    The really pleasant surprise for me was the St Jovite North track - I didn't know there was a short version of that. I stumbled across it on No-Grip when looking at tracks with the right sort of laptime. Tested it and thought "this is really good". Had an offline race there to test it out with traffic - Back Of The Net!

    I was going to recommend it to Evanso for the Evo Mini events, but couldn't find a version of it.

    The Evo minis always get a good turnout, and these are even better IMO, so these, the real Mini Coopers - and indeed the Abarths - will be staple components of the ongoing GTL Calendar. We're not talking every week, but definitely regular. We're in consolidation and build up mode at the moment, so I'm hoping this is going to be the first of many, and will be one to build upon.

    We'll have one make / multi track sprint nights, 2 make / 1 track head to heads etc. with these wonderful little cars.

    I certainly couldn't imagine the Cortinas or the Alfas being much faster round these 3 tracks, for instance.

    The servers have been tested and they are indeed all working both ship-shape & Bristol fashion.
