Cool ! 

Got to watch the movie, trailers looked great. You recommend it ? 

 

Absolutely, it's a great film about an often untold story - as it focuses more on unsung hero test driver Ken Miles working with Carroll Shelby and Ford than anything else. The racing in it is decent. Some details feel odd or out of place, but as a whole it really works.

 

If you loved Rush, you'll probably like this too.

Forum racing again tonight! Be there at 8:30 PM UK time for online action.

 

I'm still not in the best of places but really want to try to race again - if only one or two races. (Finally able to see a therapist tomorrow so that should help to gain some perspective.)

 

And having seen Le Mans '66 (a.k.a. Ford v Ferrari) last weekend I'd love to kick things off with some N300 and N400 to allow Shelby Mustangs and Ford GT40's :)

I'm hoping to be on but don't have the credits for either car

You can pick similar (classic) cars in the class so we'll accommodate all players :)

Running at about 4meg on the current internet connection, I'm also full of cold so I'll sit this one out tonight.

 

However, for the time trial crew, it's BATHURST if you fancy it. Going to try for 2:12

Don't suppose anyone has the replay from race 1 tonight?

 

I was so agonisingly close to my first win! Got my first pole position though and that Datsun has had 3 podiums from 3 races now.

 

Thanks again for hosting @McSpeed hope tomorrow goes well for you.

Thanks for the races last night everyone ! 

 

Had a massive brain fart at the start of the first race. Played a bit of WipEout in the afternoon and for some reason my brain figured the best way to start was not pre-rev, just hit throttle the moment the lights go out. Unlike WipEout, GT doesn't give you a boost of the line and when you do it in a forty y/o Ford with extremely long gearing it doesn't exactly make for a great start :lol: Fortunately my car appeared quite a bit quicker on the straights compared to the Mustangs so was able to catch up and have some nice battles.

That Fugu Z is a fantastic little machine, great fun to drive as well. Wouldn't mind a repeat of this class/ group next week tbh.

Get well soon Marsh ! 

 

Had another go at Interlagos in the gr1 TT after forum races ended but couldn't get more then 3 tenths of my time. Maybe also set a more respectable time for Bathurst white i'm at it... 2.22 :blush:

Broadband engineer on site and were back at 40meg. I fancy a bit of retro action at goodwood perhaps mustangs vs mini's?

 

I'll be having another swipe at that interlagos lap, try and stay in the to 1000!

Had another few goes at Interlagos but all of my gains were in the tenths/hundreds so think i reached my limit on this one. Your Bathurst time is starting to give me nightmares though.. good thing the races are so much fun, they help alleviate the frustration build up from the TT.

Your Bathurst time is a stormer! Can barely get into the 14s let alone a low 13. That said you should definitely concentrate on this TT and not interlagos....

What are people going to ask for next? we want Spa! there you go, er.....ok we want Laguna Seca! coming right up.

 

I'd quite like Silverstone, but it's hardly a deal breaker.

I’d probably go for Montreal of what I can think of.

Yep, that's a very good shout.

 

A fan of Paul Ricard for Blancpain reasons. What we've got is ridiculous really.

Knockhill.

 

But as that is unlikely to be on many other people's wishlist, next hope would be Deep Forest, Trial Mountain or Grand Valley. I suppose Monaco, but for time trialling purposes only lol.

I’d like more road cars. Obvious stuff like the XJ220, 959 and Testarossa. Classics like the Delorean. And for personal reasons (my first car, inherited from my mum when she died) I’d love to see the return of the mk4 Astra. I’ll concede that the last one is unlikely.

I did it, I finally won another race! Starting 9th at Bathurst in the Gr4 Mustang that no one else was using I managed to win without actively overtaking anyone because positions 3-8th either crashed or got penalties and and the second place driver punted off the first place driver at the last chicane so by the end of lap one I was leading. That's now 4 race wins from 300 starts, I'm never going to get the wins trophy but it was nice to win a race again no matter how flukey it was.
