    Cookie was too good this week. Managed to pull a few seconds back at the end but was always a bridge too far. Poor qually and tactics from me didn't help but cookie was flawless.
    This week we go to an old favourite from way back in rF1 days. TobanRP Medium Reverse layout. We will be in our trusty F3's again this week.
    We are about due for a change of car so maybe next week.

    Poor turnout last week unfortunately. Combo usually pulls a few. Trying something different this week. Server is up with the Datsun 510's atm. They will stay but we are adding a few more cars. Will be slight difference in performance between them but hoping the quicker guys might jump in the slower cars and vice versa. See how it goes. Great track and easier to defend position around here. Post further once we've chosen the other cars.
    We are at svictor's mind blowing Dundrod masterpiece.

    Boy those Cortinas are tough to drive around Dundrod.
    This week we are sticking with the same cars (Datsuns and Cortinas) around Lester GP.

    I'm really enjoying the challenge of driving the Lotus Cortina. For the tiny little thing it is, it's one of the trickiest to drive fast. Definitely sticking with it again this week.
    BTW the Lester circuit is the one in the workshop.

    Taken a few weeks but finally have my shifter up and running. After initial test laps I am going to be slow for a while. Muscle memory keeps me attempting to paddle shift a bit but I'm sure I'll get better.

    WD Mick (stinger1) on your win this week. Little Cortina was a tough drive. 1st race with the shifter but went pretty well.
    Change this week guys. Request from a member for: GT Revival
    I had to get this using a web browser as I'm darned if I can find it searching Steam. Here it is

    We are at Longford this week so hope to see a few.

    All done and running.

    Changelog v1.05
    Fix error in LifetimeEngineRPM
    Hopefully not bulletproof now. Strange thing, offline I can barely get a lap in without blowing an engine. Invulnerability on and damage zero. Online impossible to blow.

    I was my own worst enemy this week, spinning twice at the same turn. Snatched an undeserved 4th after Mick spun at the last.
    Same cars this week guys but we are back at an old favourite of mine. Bridgehampton with green leaves...:)

    A track we haven't raced (as I was on Win7 at the time) is Solitude. As I now have Win10 I can run the original version. Does anyone else here still run Win7? If not I'll put that up next week and probably drive something different.

    Ok then, Solitude it is. Back in our trusty old F3's this week after a bit of an absence.

    For those a little braver, I have the 2nd server up with the GT Revival and Dundrod. USER BEWARE car and track may get wet.
    I'm thinking of running these on a Monday my time (Sunday for most) at an earlier time than our usual.
    Server will be open for weekly practice but it will be locked for races. That is if anyone is interested. I'll PM the race day pass for those who want to race.
    Let me know of any interest.
    **EDIT**
    Making a change. Back up soon.
    Track changed to Dundrod. Conditions the same.

    So I'm thinking 8pm GMT with sessions being 30/30/5/8 laps.
    Any rain is either drizzle or light rain, nothing heavy. There are some periods of no rain throughout the sessions.
    Any thoughts?

    **This is for server 2**

    I'm getting old. Can't figure out how to download GT Revival from that link.

    Copy and paste the link into a web browser and then you need to log into Steam through that link.
