    Q: So Jesper, thanks for accepting our interview offer. Let's start with speaking about your life. Where do you live? What do you do for a living? How is family, mood?

    Jesper Taulborg: I live in small town 13 miles away from copenhagen, if I said the name you proberly wouldn't know where it is. I go to school, actully my school just started today. (12AUG).

    JP: Its annoying that I cant get past Keith
    Nah it feels good for now....

    Q: How was your skills when you started to simracing? How did you improve your driving?

    JP: Cant remember, but proberly not as good as they are now. I proberly improve my driving by practice and drive against some that is better than me.

    Q: Are you driving just for fun or you are an ambitious racer which always want to win?

    JP: When I race against Keith I always wanna win, so i can try be number 1 on the ranking system.
    Nah just kidding, most of the time I drive for fun. I dont always have to win, but its nice to win sometimes - I can be happy with a top 5 too. For me, its most important to have fun.

    Me and Keith was driving very close in both races at Padborg park.

    Q: Good and bad sides of RaceDeparment?

    JP: RD only have one bad otherwise it is a big great racing/community site. Bad side is that some people, sometimes is getting too pissed when they race, and starts calling people bad things, which is not really necessary.

    Q: What do you think about Ranking feature? Also latest updates to forum?

    JP: Its always great to have something where you can see your stats. Havent really been following the forum updates. The only things I have noticed is the new GT1 player and the new icons, and I like them.
