    Head gasket blew in my miata around 3am last night...in other words, no spirited driving for me until I pay off debts and get it fixed. -________-

    That is what it looked like to me Dragon in the video from the link Coach posted. That a gust of wind caused the car to lift up backwards from the front after it entered the Flugpatz turn. My condolences for the fans hit by the car. Good that their were survivors including Jann himself.

    I don't think @dgaf95integra was inquiring about your Miata. I'm guessing he was trying to clarify why you would view an aero fail as "three steps back" for GT Academy.

    What happened was a tragedy for sure, but it had nothing to do with going "From Virtual to Reality". If what happened was caused by Jann driving over-aggressively or like he was "in a video game", then yeah I could see GT Academy's reputation taking a hit, but that's clearly not what happened.

    Auto memorabilia store closed down today, but there were some great deals. Managed to pick up a 54/55 Mercedes W196 1:18, a Mika Hakkinen Mclaren Mercedes MP4-12 1:18, and a nice Audi R10 LMP1 print. There was a real nice Richard Burns Subaru WRC car as well, but a bit too pricey for me. I have a feeling I'll be visiting this guys online store all too often......

    Gosh, my first banner picture! I'm warm inside and it's not the beer, sake, gnocchi and midnight dip in the pool!
    Thank you for the honor, @Falango. I'm just sorry I can't join this weekend, but this was a very nice way to participate.
    Good racing, everyone.

    Check the driver's list and follow the instructions for an inactive driver. You will have to run a time trial.

    The driver's list has been updated and is ready to go for this week's racing.

    Three drivers that have shown to be especially dominant in their divisions have been moved. Congratulations to @Nicktune @aLmk and @ConnorWolf Good luck in your new homes. You earned it.

    The new format for the endurance series is amazing. The NSX GT500 car was awesome and after 2 hours and 2 cautions the whole field finished within 2 seconds of each other. we only had 4 guys at the finish but i promise it was a blast. Next saturday night come out, i promise you wont regret it!

    Ahh, watching F1 at RTL channel, Ferrari pitout but with Vettel, did they improve the motor sound?, Alsonso is far away but as we all know him he is able to improve from start on even with a slower car, enjoy Fernando :cheers:
