    First test race at Donington tonight looks like we will have a decent grid of mixed cars with a few spaces left. If anyone wants to join or try out online racing for the first time then link in the post above.

    Good fun last night on http://sig-racing.boards.net/ with some real BTCC action. Couple of guys dropped in last minute who are more than welcome to show up again for the race series.

    Well done Kane on the win

    If you can't commit to the full season then that's not an issue.

    To give an idea of abilities the fastest race laps ranged from around 1:09 to around 1:12 on a rubbered track around Donington Park National.
