On September 6, 1987 was the first race on the circuit Autodromo Internacional de Cascavel in Paraná. The proof display joined 35 riders and was named I Copa Brasil de Caminhões," and serve as a test to ascertain the safety of the novel type of race.

    They do get notified but only at the first session people join. Notifications get automatically pruned if you leave the site.

    I have GSC also and that games also runs in max settings fine on my computer, so Reiza games run well on my laptop:thumbsup: But I primairly organize and race rfactor2, and for that it's just to slow:)
    With everything off and on low settings I can race with 20-30 framerates and if it's crowded my computer won't cope:( An endurance race is out of the question because of it with this computer, so buying a new computer is my first priority:)

    Current spec:
    Model: Laptop
    CPU: Pentium Duale-Core CPU T4300@2.10GHz
    Memory:4,00GB
    OS: 7 Home premium 32 bit
    Video: ATI Mobility Radeon HD4530

    At least you can have proper races in GSC with your 1:05's ;) , i was practicing 2 days this week and the result is i'm still 1.2 seconds off pace in the V8's and there is no way in hell i will be ever able to keep up in an open wheeler with you aliens.

    So for now it's trucks, i guess :D
