Can someone explain what you mean by Rallycross here, I know BH has a rallycross config (I've been to see it) but I'm sure it doesn't exist for Race.

By far one of the best races i had in the racing club personally. Great racing with the L&L train (lemon and lennon) and Barriga. Great rough battle with MH. Great track that Magny Cours National. Also the oval in Brasil was fun.

Small note for some, read this please

I had great fun 2night

Winning 3 of 4 races that i participated :)

With first race of Mangy Course i won it by (not seconds but) 0.05 liters of fuel....beating Bram on the line with his empty fuel tank....llooooooooooOOOOOOOLLLL :)
race 2 was still great even though with (tepa?) saying that i took him out...
sorry buddy....but during the race i have made many succesfull passing in that corner....with you it was going to be the same or at least ride together side by side in the corner (which it is possible)....only to find you coming with your rear in front of me cutting, so of course we crashed lol......**** happens

I still was able to battle great with Micheal (thought i would ran out of fuel lol :)) & finished 3rd

Curitiba oval was great....i was not the fastest, but i knew i had a good setup or at least drive great here :)
and so i did winning both races lol.......
tnx guys....it was fun, but i wanted to watch the moto gp so badly, so that's why i left ;)

I just joined the races in Curitiba oval and Brand Hatch X-Rally :D

In Curitiba oval we're so close to each other, it was very fun as u need to draft with someone else, which u don't do it that oven in a normal wtcc races.

In Brand Hatch, it was just too much fun, too bad only 5 of us left in the server. I never hated the safety car this much!! :p

I captured some pics on the invisable, and uncrashable Oliver Peugeot :becky:

Also the last pic is our avg speed around the track. :pound:

Highly enjoyable time i had with the 407's,they are made for single make fun i think,early pace at Magny Nat. gave me a nice gap back to Ben,but he stuck at it and pegged it right down again,i didnt take tyre wear into account enough and crunched my car badly at the last chicane exit,usually a fireball death instantly hitting that wall,but i lived with a puncture and huge suspension damage,i did get my first try of the new pit stops though,so not a total loss,gave Bram a shove over the line to finish too.
Race2 from 2nd was another good start and fun being chased by David,again another driver who just will not give up,constantly keeping good pace chasing me right to the end,excellent stuff :thumb:.

More 407 nights can only be a good thing,usually the only way these poor things get a game,but depsite the power deficit,they sure drive lovely.
