    Let @NW48 do what he wishes. If you don't like it then ignore it.

    Whatever you say. But if your idea of keeping in contact is mindlessly double posting spam, then that's what it means to you. I have kept in contact with this thread despite my busy life and personal issues that are casting a cloud over this series. I did say that Base Specs would be out by the end of the week, and the week hasn't ended yet, so I'm still sticking true to my promise.

    And you aren't one to criticize someone for not keeping contact as your WEC series went without any real movement for a few weeks, and so did your Rally championship.

    It's our series. I don't have an issue with what Gremlin said, and I am working towards improving it. The thing I did have an issue with was the spiteful like from a certain individual. :)

    True, I would like it if you would refrain from posting in here about your views and do it in the appropriate PM as it is off-topic and unnecessary. We don't want this thread to become filled up with petty arguments and have important information clouded within it.

    ---

    Now, let's keep on topic, and continue posting things related to the series. Some calendar predictions would also be a good thing. *Hint, hint, nudge, nudge*

    I wouldn't mind Cote D'azur or Monaco but it probably wouldn't go down too well aha so a better choice would be Suzuka or Midfield.

    I'd rather have the GP circuit. I doubt touring cars would do as well as on the GP circuit on the Nordschliefe.

    You need to try going around the Green Hell more. It is a great track for touring cars and recently the WTCC raced there. ;)

    Only one round of the Enduro Cup will count for Championship points. The other two Enduro Cup rounds are Non-Championship events. :):tup:

    My biggest concern isn't time, but rather a lack of a partner. Or can we go all the way buy our lonesome?

    I can and will help people find a partner, but if you can't find one, I will allow people to race the whole thing themselves. You can double up with a driver in this series. However, if a majority don't have a co-driver, we will shorten the race to 500km's.

    But, unlike last season. The race will be split into two sessions (2x 500km's). One session for each co-driver. Total times will be added together to find the overall position. :):tup:

    It's alright mate. It was short notice, I wasn't expecting many people anyway. It was strong session though. We got through a fair bit. :):tup:

    ATCC Announcement

    The first of two pre-season tests has been scheduled for this Saturday at 20:00 GMT+10 and will be held at Silverstone on the GP Layout. Attendance is not compulsory, but it is suggested you come and give us a hand finalizing the specs. Specs for the Mustang and Subaru will be finalized in the coming days.

    Until then, look for a major announcement on Friday afternoon that will change the series landscape.

    I'll hopefully be there to get some practice down although I'm debating wether I shall do the Silverstone round... It is such a pain being able to do only 1 lap before the track completely vanishes. I'll have to see how this practice goes.

    Edit: Thanks to Aaroh my Lexus is handling a lot better than before and overall faster.

    It's alright mate. I couldn't imagine how annoying it would be, I'd probably get irritated after just 2 laps, but you managed quite a fair bit of laps during the improtu test session. :):tup:

    Awesome stuff! Thanks @Aaroh for that! :):tup:
