    Interesting Tuesday race. I clipped Mark when he went afoul of the laws of physics during L1, then we both went off in T1 on L2 and I was forced to watch is autobatics on L3 at the same spot, oh the agony and it forced him to leave the race. Meanwhile Ari pits and Justin laps me all lonesome like.....but wait, there's more on Thursday and Saturday!
     
  14. heya folks newly licsenced driver wondering what car would be a good choice is it any car from the wttc 07 section because ive been driving a seat from that list is that okay to use or will i suffer for using that particular car (i.e is it the worst choice out of the list?)

    They are pretty well matched and it's going to boil down to personal taste. I have found I tend to blow the Chevy engine when I use that lol

    The SEAT is a very popular car. Most of us will use one model for a while then go on to another after getting used to or tired of it. It's good to get to know the quirks and strengths of each, there certainly is a time to pick the Honda above all others :sneaky:. Currently my pick is the '06 Alfa GTA, just because I like the yellow paint job :cool:
     
  17. 19:00 GMT start the race. I live in Sweden and it is GMT + 2:00:

    Then begins the race then 21:00?

    Have another question too

    How many players are allowed and how long before you must log in, in order to get a place?
