The FWD vs RWD battle resumes again at RaceDepartment.
Another GTL event, this time lets make it a challenge match. Which was superior in the classic cars? The quick and lively Lotus Cortina, or the nimble handling Mini Cooper S?
A little while ago, Andy planned a race at Warwick Farm, a classic Aussie raceway that has since been closed. It is new to GTL but is a very scenic and well made track. Many of you got a chance to try it before the event was changed, and requested we schedule an event there.
So here it is. The track is tight and suits the smaller cars so we will run TC-65's, but let's make a challenge match out of it.

The two most popular cars racing at Warwick Farm back then were Lotus Cortina's and Mini's.

I am getting a little confused here @ RD, I spotted what I thought was only one race on Sunday nights (Aus time), Race07 and have signed up for it, but now I find this GTL race, (earlier too may get both in), am I confused or is this 'so far, so good"?

Yep we probably have confused you, but look closely at the times. :D

This GTL Event is scheduled to suit our normal European timezones, actually 5.30AM Monday (Oz time) for Practice. Most of our events are directed to Euro timezones, but we have started the Oceania Group to cater to our Oz timezone.

We tricked you by having this particular GTL event on an Aussie track, maybe??:)

All of our races here are scheduled using GMT to avoid any problems with timezone and Daylight Saving Time issues.

So in the Aussie world, the Oceania Event is Sunday night, and this GTL event is Monday morning. Clear as mud??

Do you still wish to sign up for this one, are you insane like me and prepared to race in the wee hours of the morning?

Thanks Warren, finally getting familiar with the site, thanks to you.
As much as I would like to join this event, will have to wait for retirement!
So scratch me, I will try not to create too much more 'noise'.

Good news Andy, because you should enjoy this track, it's rather nice.

C'mon guys, where are you all. I need some more support for my Mini team to give these Cortina's some hurry-up. ;)
