This event is Cancelled / Postponed due to insufficient numbers.

We'll try again in the New Year.





Time for another GTL fun night, we'll continue the theme of casual fun and trying out the diifferent cars available in GTL.
This time, we use only the GTC 65 cars, but two races using a different car for each race.
We have divided the class into two groups:

American Power: AC Cobra, Chev Corvette, Shelby Daytona, Shelby GT350, TVR Griffith

Euro Finesse: Austin Healy, Ferrari 275, Jaguar E Type, Lotus Elan, Lotus Elite, Mercedes 300SL, Renault Alpine

Notes:

Important: Please pay special attention to Racedepartment's Golden Rule: If you hit another driver and disadvantage him, we expect you stop and let the other driver regain his position on you. If this costs you many places (eg first few laps) then consider this a penalty for your driving infringement. Doing this shows respect to your fellow drivers and will encourage drivers to be more careful. Please use some care when letting the other driver regain position, do not immediately stop your car on the driving line where it can cause further accidents. Not following this rule will result in your membership of the racing club being terminated at once!

It's got the big ass ford V8 under the bonnet, so technically "American Power" is still valid. :good: And Blackpool power doesn't sound quite so....charismatic. It sounds like the company that runs the Illuminations.

My Euro car was a toss up between 2, so if you want the Alpine, I'll switch back :good:

Andrew Evans

It was literally a toss of the coin this morning between them for me, so I'd already decided to switch about if there were any other takers for either. :good:

Yeah I know, but we needed to get some more cars into the American group to balance the numbers a bit. So I went for "partly" American, besides it fitted more competitively and power wise with the Yankee stuff.


EDIT: BTW I'll go with Shelby GT350, Austin Healey.

I'm having to officially downgrade my attendance status to "doubtful" :bad: - I'm going live with a fairly major project that evening (moved back from Wednesday), and I can't guarantee what time I'm getting home - 2nd race should be OK, first race is under threat though. :(

Yep, I wouldn't read too much into a lower turn out in the week before Christmas.
Just look at the sign up's for the Abarth Event in the new year. The future of GTL still looks shiny.
