    What casual phone/tablet games do you play?

    I'll give a shout out to something called Top Drives which has been eating a lot of my free time over the last few months. It's kinda like Top Trumps meets Clash Royale; You collect cars of varying performances and rarities, pick five of them to form a 'hand' and then play against others in a...

    Forza Horizon 3

    I only had time to have a quick few hour drive last night but so far it seems really good. I picked the 'Ute as my starting car (when in rome...) and it was good fun to fling that around in the first few races, especially in the rain. Also, the hardest difficulty really is hard so I decided to...

    Random Thoughts... (Motorsports Edition)

    That's basically it, really. Rich gentlemen racing somewhat contemporary single-seaters. And because it's rich gentlemen racing for their own fun there is next to no media coverage, hence you never hearing about it. It used to be called EuroBOSS. Edit: There also is also another historic F1...

    Anyone have experience with micro 4/3rds format cameras?

    I'll check the Sony out in a camera shop, but based on the specs I'd say it's too bulky for my purposes. I'm really looking for something small enough so that I can't use the 'it's too big to carry around' excuse.

    Anyone have experience with micro 4/3rds format cameras?

    I'll hijack this a bit since there already was a discussion about RX100 and GX7... I'm looking to get a 'proper' compact camera that I can keep with me everywhere I go since the DSLR kit is quite cumbersome for that. Essentially my main criteria is RAW capability, small size (needs to fit into...

    Dirt Rally

    I like the way you work your way towards progress as you get through rallies. It adds to the whole team career aspect. That said, having the option to choose what to focus the research on would be nice.

    Dirt Rally

    There is a Force Feedback mod available at Race Department. That and switching to 540 degrees made driving way nicer, the steering feels more precise and the feedback more accurate now. It's still not brilliant, but better. Now I just need to find time to do more driving... It did help, but...

    Dirt Rally

    I'm loving this so far :D It took me a bit of time to get used to the Fulvia, it seems to work fairly well for me if I move the brake bias pretty far rearwards, as that helps me turn the thing into corners. That said, if you need to stop really quickly the rear bias makes things frantic very...

    Dirt Rally

    Okay, it took 30 seconds of the Stratos video for me to conclude that I definitely need this in my life. Like, right now.

    Spectator killed and several others injured at VLN race at the 'Ring

    Is it practical, though? Remember, GT3 is a global formula with hundreds of cars around the world, with a global BOP to make them competitive against each other. Making severe changes is going not going to be a simple job, and at the level of development these cars get is going to claw that back...

    Spectator killed and several others injured at VLN race at the 'Ring

    That's true, there is no practical way to fully remove all risks. However, it is not an excuse not to look hard at what happened, learn from it and see if changes can be made to reduce the risk of something similar happening again. Personally I'd rather see the GT3 cars banned from the 'ring...

    Spectator killed and several others injured at VLN race at the 'Ring

    You are more than welcome to educate those of us who have never been there as spectators, then. I don't want to sound harsh or argue against what you are saying, but it would be more helpful if you, regular visitor who knows how things work, would give the right information rather than just...

    Game: Assetto Corsa

    If the price was the same I'd get the Fanatec. In fact, that's the deal I did, and I'm still very happy with it.

    Game: Assetto Corsa

    I have that particular wheel, but with different pedals and no shifter. As I said two pages earlier it's a fantastic wheel BUT I'm not sure it would be worth twice as much as a G27.

    Horizon 2 Finale Route Hot Laps

    Yeah, having done a few more laps I'd say that it takes about three laps to remember which turns you need to take. I did two around the modified route to go with the one I did yesterday and on the last one I didn't really need to look at the map on the parts I did yesterday. It's way more...

    Horizon 2 Finale Route Hot Laps

    I think it might be useful if you could have it printed or perhaps on a tablet. That said, it would be only slightly better than having the map on the same device, so no real point in making one... I did the latter yesterday and just about made my way around, although scrolling and zooming the...

    Horizon 2 Finale Route Hot Laps

    This sounds like fun :) I only have the 360 version which does not have the newer MX-5, but I did drive around the short route in the 1st gen one in around 23 minutes or so. It's not a valid time since I took a few wrong turns, though. Are there any tricks for navigation? Other than to have...

    Horizon 2

    I dropped this after only few days back in the autumn, but picked it up again to try out with my new wheel... I have trouble getting my head around how frustrating and brilliant it is at the same time. Driving around the countryside and mountain roads is fantastic fun, but then you get the...

    Game: Assetto Corsa

    I lucked out and found a second hand Fanatec wheel + pedal set for around the same price as a new G27 last week. I'm loving it :D Having said that, and while I think the set is way better than a G25, a brand new set costs twice as much as a G27 and I'm not sure it would be worth that.

    Nissan LMP1

    I think this is brilliant, and makes a lot of sense for Nissan. A radical concept like this is bound to get them more publicity than a conventional LMP car would, and it is propably going to be an awful lot cheaper than creating a conventional LMP car and developing it to a point where it would...
