Now I've tried this car on this track, man it won't be easy! You step on the gas and you're in the forest LOL.
The Caterham is actually much easier to drive on this track!:) Only the brakes of those can trick you in some corners if you don't really know the track.

I think it's a good combo.
Unfortunately, I don't have enough knowledge of the track to drive it like Nordschleife but I'm going to put laps in to get a bit faster than I am.

BTW, this is just a time trial, right? No way to race there:giggle:

I think your right Dennis. I have just checked this track and it's a death trap. How they ever raced on it I don't know. I even just watched the computer take a car round and it lost it 3 times.

This is going to be an adventure for sure.

Unfortunately only six entries so far. I thought everyone liked this track and that I was the only one that has been missing out? I was thinking that with a full or almost full grid, that we'd see a lot of jams on the road. It looks like we'll have a good run and maybe a nice time rolling up the berms and thru the trees on our way around.

I just installed the circuit and the Escort and did some rounds... At least I tried :)
This circuit is great fun especially down the straights \o/ Maby I'll apply later since I am not sure if I can make it yet.

Well I took the time out to learn the car & circuit and I must say *Great car & great circuit* but they don't mix for a full on race event in my view..
On a normal event you put a lot of trust in the guys or girls around you. but you can't carry that over for an event like this as it's just to easy to lose it and take others with you or you happen to be the victim ect. Plus the fact it's to easy to get stuck out of bounds with no way to return..

Shame as I think both car & circuit are great in there own right..
Ohwell have a great time all :)
