Sorry for the last notice. I've just discovered, following a Windows Update, that my wheel isn't being properly recognised again. I've spent the last 50 minutes trying to find a solution, but for all my efforts I seem to have the same problem, but in duplicate!... so I won't be able to take part:(

Top combo @Denis Betty , so sorry more didn't turn up for this one fer ya, a full-ish grid of these cars would be awesome:) Congrats and thanks to all for great racing, and the lap times were so close!

Just a thought Denis... isn't there an Alfa (Escort?!) that could match up with this little gem? <thinks> will have a play to see</thinks>

Whoever put the results up on https://simresults.net/ how did you get the 2 races? Would love to know for Weds events (my json file only has the last race), tips appreciated:thumbsup:

Edit: Got me thinking, I've owned 8 Mini's in my life.... Mrs says I can have another if she can have a 2CV again. Looks like it's no more Mini's :laugh:

Edit: Unless she lets me put a BMW bike engine and sequential 'box in the 2CV :sneaky:

Ah that was me. I need to exit the game after race 1, make a copy of the json file, and then restart. Then the same again after race 2 before the session rolls over of course. I forget now who it was who showed me this trick.
NB: the absolutely bloody crucial step I keep forgetting is to reload my car setup after restarting between races! :roflmao:

So how do you put them in the one result/entry file Neil? I'm guessing I'd have 2 entries into simresults.net if I did it?!

Had three mini’s in my life, apart from my present one ( not really a mini is it. )
first one was an original mini minus, started when it wanted to, ran when it wanted to, changed gear when it wanted to. Had an advanced disc brake on the front left and a drum brake on the front right. Swapped it for a badly hand painted fiat 500, which left me no choice but to badly hand paint it battle ship grey.:O_o:
Had a mini 1275 GT which used 1 pint of oil every 100 miles, replaced the engine, that did 50 miles per pint of oil, never worked that one out, So bought a Hillman avenger GT, one of the best cars and longest owned, kept that for two years.
My final mini was a mini minus fibre glass one, bought from a kit car show in Epsom , built it to race, bought a 1295cc Race engine with split Weber carbs, limited slip diff, straight cut dog box for £900, those were the days.
Formula three front brakes with drive shafts etc especially for a mini for £300
Set of 8” race wheels with soft slicks from a famous person of F1 Benetton fame for £100. Wife drag raced it a Santa Pod Raceway, managed a 14.7 sec run.
It was finally owned by Andy Royal who spent £30,000 on it, it was obviously beautifully done, but pretty much the same to look at
The irony was that it after many years ended up in my garage for the wife to completely re wire it to F1 standards.

That aside, thanks @Denis Betty for the organising efforts for this event, it deserved a full field, why, as usual beyond my little brain to understand.
Congratulation to podiums and John for race 2 win, and all that turned out.

i remember, not so long a go, chatting to a mini specialist about using a Mini Cooper S 1275 1965 as every day transport, he eventually turned me from this mad brain wave I had at the time. The cost was £6000, which was a lot less than the cost of a modern vehicle at the time. Just looked at it’s cost now:confused:
I was not as mad as I thought.:(
