    We raced tonight with the gang at ESR.
    First time driving that car or that class ( Touring classic ) and it was quite fun.

    Managed to finish second but i must say it was mostly because of other peoples mistake lol.

    Great video, looked fun, oh, and the best races are always with the slower cars in my eyes, makes for great close racing.

    I agree! Races were great and again I think that Bathurst is the best looking track layout among the others... at the moment... I'm eager to see Macau and the Green Hell!
    I was hoping to see more on the track honestly... but I understand touring and bathurst aren't as popular as, for example, the Dtm92 and European pack. Also I had in mind to do highlights of this race as well but the majority of us had the same car with the same livery so it'd look weird... I wish we could have a livery pack as well in the future... there I said that!

    Yeah I know but I was looking/hoping to fish some "old cars lovers" and do something different instead of the classical HP beasts race.
    And after all we need some practice also with other cars, cause everyone knows that practice makes you perfect.... oh wait... did I say perfect?

    I know, after all these years of practice I'm so much better now...and I thought practicing over and over again wouldn't make me better.

    I was slow as heck in that Volvo. I should pick up the E30. It's cheap now, right?

    they are 99 vrp.
    Considering the car usually cost 249 with the same livery for everyone and that i bought the car at 65vrp i have no problem spending 99vrp on a livery.

    I have bought number #19 team bigazzi

    According to the facebook tease a while back, we should get an update on both G5 and Touring Classics on the next patch! :thumbsup:

    Too bad I missed this one!
    Bathurst is a daunting track that I both like and hate at the same time!.. . :thumbsdown::thumbsup:
    Hate might be the wrong word, but it scares the hell out of me!! :confused::D

    This looks decent, don't know whether I'm up to speed yet, but I'd be up for joining you guys. It's about time I got stuck in.

    Edit: I think your races are about 2p.m for me so I may be able to make some weekend ones. I'll keep my eye out, and get some friend requests going in the meantime, if that's okay.

    Hey Emilio, the M1 Procar is ripe for it's own little series. There are a ton of liveries and I bet with a little investment by participants you would end up with some real nice footage for a video.:)

    The only issue is, of course, the non-updated physics. But, with good participation (9 or 10 cars) it would be lots of fun, IMO.

    I'm calling dibs on the #90 Warsteiner M1 Procar.:)

    What do you say, guys?! Let's race 'em!
