    Absolutely loving this track and car combo. It's hard work but the fun and the gratification when you nail it outweighs any work. Missing or not joining up for this event would be sacrilege.
    I mean to say I could do this every week once a week like Tuesdays for instance.:roflmao:
    But seriously this is serious fun.:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Here are 3 setup I've been doing a little work on.
    If anybody cares to give them a go treat them as a base setup. Should give you a good head start. You know if you haven't got the time due to work, family, children, real life commitments or just can't be bothered to practise and make your own.:roflmao:. But want to join in in the fun because that's what it's really about.:thumbsup::)

    @FeltHat It might actually be fairly viable on Silverstone...

    I will be at the back if anyone is looking, or cares. It is fun to drive, if not scary.

    Haven't driven the Group 5 cars before... so count me in. Just got a shifter for Dirt Rally. Not sure whether I'll use it for this, though. Need a little more practice and I'm guessing these things are a handful.

    They're great fun with H-shifter, but obviously downshifting can be a challenge. I generally drive them with H-shifter, but I am aware that by doing so, I'm willingly making myself slower, because my downshifts are crap, and in the heat of the battle/race, even upshifts can be problematic if you don't time them right. And they've recently re-worked manual transmissions in the game, so they are even trickier now (but more realistic I guess).

    Using H-shifter with an autoclutch might be an option as well. If I do that, I only use clutch for upshifts and still blip for downshifts (even though you don't have to do that with autoclutch), but again, ever since the transmission update, even autoclutch is more challenging than it used to be.
