    I don't think I can relate very much the feel of driving a real car to any sim I've tried but when I went to Oulton Park this year for the first time I immediately felt at home on the circuit and lapped everyone else (all Caterhams, mostly experienced track drivers) in the first session :) As they learned the track they got quicker but even at the end of the day I was still quickest, along with a race R300 which was there to practice (mine is a road car, I was touring Scotland in it a couple of weeks later)

    Some video I took at Cadwell

    (Skip to 3'30", apologies for the sound). The car in front has 260 BHP to my 215 but is otherwise identical.

    Whoa. Holden driver calls (smaller) Ford a mini version of his car. Name-calling and insults do NOT ensue.

    When I lived in Spain, this was my weekend car. It needed some tweaks to drive properly, but now it does provide huge amounts of fun.
    I still own it, but I only enjoy it the few times I am in Spain.

    Currently, this is my weekend toy:

    For the most part, no we don't know what a Holden is... except through sim-racing!

    2nd Runner up for the Grand Tour's worst rear end there Loki. I like the parts of the new Civic, but it is so much longer than the last version that I haven't adjusted to it's looks yet. Type R is the way to go
