    We travel with the entire family. Son, daughter, and my wife.

    Seville is pretty, tiny, and quite hot. It reminds us of Paris, but hot and dry like Tucson, and it is cleaner than Paris, much less smell of street effluent.

    "Some of Kansas City's sister city relationships are visible by just by glancing at the cityscape. For instance, as shown in the photo above, much of our Country Club Plaza is modeled after Spanish architecture found in our sister city, Seville, Spain."

    That explains some of our confusion as we were leaving the train station.

    Avenida Kansas City? In Seville, Spain???

    Makes more sense to me now. Thanks, @pubason !

    I agree, @LoCoArMeN on the far right. I think it's @Tyler Utley on the far left. Not certain of others.

    I think I see 4 "SNAILS" in that finalist pic. My guesses are Tyler Utley, Ryan Lynch, Vladimir (vovik) and Armen. Tough trying to match faces between that pic and the one on the first post. We'll know for sure tomorrow sometime.

    Guess it's my ancient reaction time - but have only managed to get 3rd in that event. Spent several hours at it - without much improvement. Hard to make the passes stick. And hard to keep a good pace without going off track.

    Those that are extra familiar with "The Ring" probably do well.

    Thanks for your suggestions anyway.

    I personally used the Pescarolo C60 Hybride - Judd '05, I had it from a Le mans league I was in. My personal tune doesn't work that well at the nurburgring but I used this, tune here, and it worked no problem. Relatively easy win if you don't spin it out... :lol:

    Hello People of SNAIL Racing,

    Here's your official SNAIL Welcome Post!
    Thanks for your interest!
    Here's what you need to know (and do) in order to join:

    We run a clean league by enforcing a strict penalty system based on the SNAIL OLR (which is a modified version of the GTP OLR). We also expect all of our drivers to know and follow The Good Racecraft Guide. Please become versed in both if you aren't already. Once that is complete, please follow the steps below to complete your entry into the league:

    1. You start a conversation and add @CoachMK21, @Dragonwhisky, @JLBowler, @nmcp1 & @zer05ive as participants. The conversation title should be "Request To Join".

    2. SNAIL Administrators will respond with specific instructions on what you need to accomplish to join the SNAIL [Spec] Racing club. Sunday races are organized exclusively through the GT6 Community features within the game.

    3. Place the following links (URLs) in the favorites (or bookmarks) in your web browser for quick reference. Please make every effort to read and understand the following links. Over the years a great deal of time and effort has gone into creating this league and we would like nothing more than to have you but we ask that you take the time and effort to do your homework. 99.9% of any question you may have about SNAIL can be found in the posts below.
    4. You drive fast and clean on Sunday :tup:

    Again, the original post has everything you need to know about what to expect on Sunday night and what you will need to have completed in order to be competitive. If you have any questions, please feel free to post your question on the thread. If you have a preference for car/wheel colour and racing number, please follow the instruction contained here.

    During the week we run a number of different events, we encourage all SNAILs to join as many as possible.
    Welcome to SNAIL :cheers:

    Tex, I also use the Pescarolo, like Deal described (with the same tune), and it's a fairly easy win if you keep your nose clean. Obviously, easier said than done at the 'Ring, but it's not impossible. Just got to watch out for a couple of places where the AI might spin and leave their asses hanging on track. I clipped a Minolta car, I think, for my win, but I kept my front end pointed in the right direction after contact and still got ahead by about 8 seconds.
