    First time at Spa over the weekend. What an incredible circuit. Here's an onboard of pretty much the only vaguely clear lap I got! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wYVl5jy-tsg&list=UU76myElfTt7Qt01ZW3Y-d3A And here's a heroic LaFerrari owner who also did his best to keep up in the wet on...

    My Race Car for 2010

    It's still the AMT, which means a single clutch automated manual. It's no worse than an actual manual, but it's certainly no DSG or full blown sequential. Thing is, it's got so much torque anyway, it doesn't make a huge difference, and since everything in GT4 get's 'Balance of Performance'...

    My Race Car for 2010

    I'm just amazed it panned out how it did.....and also gutted this type of thing doesn't happen to everyone! I've made so many good friends during my 5 years of racing, many of whom are also fantastic drivers. Genuinely, racing on the old Final Gear Live For Speed server that had a load of...

    My Race Car for 2010

    Hey everyone. It's been a while since I posted on here, but a brief note to say that I kind of made it! During the season I posted about here 3 years ago (Tracksports) I raced against a guy in my team who had been sponsored by a local company. He did considerably better than I did that season...

    No 56k: Ringmeet 2012 - Nothing to see here, move along

    It's been like that almost every race this year! Definitely gets the adrenaline flowing, but generally, because we race each other all the time, we kind of know what everyone's likely to do. So some people, you'll be happy to go round the outside of (the ones you rarely make a mistake), and...

    No 56k: Ringmeet 2012 - Nothing to see here, move along

    Taken me ages to get round to uploading the second race, but if you're interested, here it is.....for anyone who can't be bothered to watch 30mins of racing, last 5 or so are particularly entertaining. Also.....car shouldn't normally be that drifty....wrong choice of setup on my part!

    New job and racing have somewhat killed anything outside normal social life, so I haven't really had much of a chance to read through the forums over the last year or so! Hopefully might be able to pop in a bit more often now though :P

    That's Boxberg! Some kind of magazine shoot? The handling track there is fairly hilarious for full sized cars....

    Video of our race on Saturday now uploaded for anyone interested: ETA: It's in the process of editing down to get rid of the two warm up laps. Whilst YouTube is sorting itself out, FF to 7min28

    As I said....haven't looked on here for a good while so didn't realise anyone was going to be there. You missed a great race though. We had winner number 6 out of 10 races this season on the Sat! As for Leam....I work for a large engineering company that's nearby....

    That was the Supersports race you watched. As you have said, my car is black. Well....it looks exactly like this now in fact! Looks like you lt had a great trip.... How did you lot manage camping with the rain on Sat evening though?!

    Hey guys...Just seen this thread. Didn't realise there were a load of FG people there last weekend, but then I haven't checked in here for a while. Anyway....I'm number 11 in the Caterham Tracksports championship (not sure if you stayed to watch us), but thanks for coming along to watch at least...

    [18x06] March 4th, 2012

    An R500 has 500bhp PER TONNE. 500bhp in a Seven would be both mental and scary! The Duratec in a 500 is a fairly manic 263bhp. Still plenty, but puts it very much in a. Similar bracket to the X-Bow.

    My Race Car for 2010

    The Atom is a great car. Not quite as well developed as the Caterham, but it's definitely of the same sort of idea. You do tend to notice the fact the engine is right by the rear axel more (they really like to oversteer) whereas the Caterham tends more to mild mid corner understeer which can be...
