    [​IMG] Welcome to week 35! This week we will be taking on the new Italian circuit, Mores in the Nissan GTR!
    Designed and produced specifically to compete in the FIA GT1 World Championship, the GT-R NISMO GT1 is based on the road-going version of the legendary Nissan GT-R and was the only car to have ever been constructed implicitly to the GT1 technical regulations. The GT-R NISMO GT1 is powered by a NISMO race-prepped VK56DE, a naturally aspirated V8 engine that displaces 5,552 cc. It measures 80.3 inches in width, 186.2 inches in length, and has a wheelbase of 109.4 inches.
    Autodromo di Mores is a permanent motor racing and motorbike race track on the Italian island of Sardinia. Building first started on the circuit on 15 July 2000 and was completed on 15 March 2003. The circuit hosts the Prove Libere Motociclistiche, Sardegna VaCanze, BMW Academy, Gully Racing and Sardegna Motori.

    Ian and me drove a race. The track is really fun after some laps. Very low speed, but you learn a lot about the car. Hope some more people will join. It will be a blast with a bigger grid.

    Did a few laps last night and I need to say great litlle track and with the GTR you really need to control that right foot. Haven't found a setup yet that let's me throw the car around the tight corners, but looking at the laptime earlier done by our :alien: drivers, it wasn't half bad. :D

    Hopefully can race tonight for a podium. ;)

    Experienced a funny bug in rFactor2 today. Stefan was some laps behind due to damage. I let him unlap himself and was a couple of seconds behind him. Then rFactor decided I am 1 Lap behind. Stefans HUD still said I am leading. In the end he won. Really stange :D

    Yes, it very strange indeed.
    The race started trouble some as my sli-pro display connection started to go on and off which causes the game to have huge lag during the "detected new usb hardware" period. It be came undriveable and even bumped into Freddy. Sorry m8! I had to unplug the device (which is the major button and display engine to my G27 wheel). Now a couple of functions were gone, like the pit menu/request/limiter, lights, horn :D, and brake balance settings.
    As I had slammed into the barrier due to lag I had to get some repairs... 180 seconds..... I forgot the limiter wasn't there anymore.... stop and go..... when driving into the pit scratched my car... 260 seconds repair. :mad:
    Freddy was 5 laps in front and waited for me to unlap. When we were in the same lap again we battled shortly as he passed me in the first corner and now he was leading and driving away. Finish 2nd... I thought...?????
    Yes, sure put some gremlins around as when I escaped after race finish... I had moved up to 1st???? Strange!
