    But you did @Justin Swan :)
    I need a lot to learn and get used to G27, because that wheel can kick back and slip away from my hands :D My wheel is alive! :confused:
    After more than 10 years of racing with my old one, it's whole new world now :alien:

    I know what you mean Arunas, I just switched to a G25.
     
  7. i was told that using a wheel would make me faster, pah not yet but jeez has it made racing 1,000,000% more fun :)
    thanks Dennis for organizing these races and thanks to each and every driver that sits on the grid on race night :thumbsup:

    one day, in this game or the next i will be racing hard.

    It took me a while to get faster using a wheel from using a 360 controller but much more rewarding when you get use to it. Can't give a time scale, it's just naturally progressing the more I use it. I've had my G27 about 8 months now and had a DFGT for about 8 months before that. Previous to that I used an xbox360 controller and only really played RacePro.

  15. I would like to join, but why isn't it a WTCC race format???
    45 min. is too long
    I saw as well the Mini race is 80 min!!!
    :(

    I don't think it's too long. It opens up possible outcomes that might not necessarily happen in a Sprint race.
    Having said that, I guess it runs late for you guys an hour ahead

    Rolled in a distant second to Reggie today. I did consider staying out after he pitted because of the 14s gap I had but it didn't take a genius to work out that wasn't going to pay off as the gap times came tumbling down. So...I decided to pit to at least protect my 2nd place.

    Congrats Reggie and everyone who finished, which was all starters which is a pleasant change :D
