    indeed mate ;) I just would like to put out, the sciroccos are now in my stockyard and will never move, due to how much I hate them xD

    I can now retire the vomit-coloured Barbiemobile. Shame, it's actually really not that bad.

    I honestly think if I didn't DC at Bathurst I'd be spraying the champers. Luck.

    I think if I would have knuckled down earlier I would have been thick in top 10, but usual me, lazy 1st half

    Your connection had some Bathurst Peugeot oil in it. Poor engine. It's what happens when you think you can tune up an air-cooled Beetle engine up to 305hp.

    its just simply, (rich coming from me but) make your racecraft a lil' better. You will run away with title, I notice you pit same lap as others around you a lot, rather then trying under or over cut. Just a small tip for you :p

    Seasons 5 and 6 were just embarrasing.

    5 I had the Honda Civic that just didn't get on with me.

    6 I was just crap, considering it was still the same Ford I'd run in Seasons 2 and 4.

    Thank you so much. I'm honoured to be able to race against such a great field of talented drivers and I never expected to find myself battling against the front runners, let alone winning. I'm so happy right now.

    Skeng, Rolo, Xflow and Quade have all pushed me beyond my limits, they are all worthy of this championship title too and I'm pleased as punch to be up there with them. You guys have fought me so hard from day one, it could have been anyone's title, so well done to you too.

    I've found some new friends this season, friends that have supported me and offered me help and encouragement throughout. Your support and friendship is really appreciated and I hope that we will race many more seasons together. You know who you are...I love you.

    Rolo - you are the key to making this championship work. You've been responsible for most of the testing, hosting the lobby and organising the championship. You've done a great job, especially as GT6 is still relatively new. Thank you.

    Now the season is over, I can finally take the Volvo to a remote location and set fire to it. It has been a love/hate relationship, I didn't initially choose the car either but its done me proud and I've had fun trying to make it work.

    Here's hoping that next season is just as action packed and exciting as this one was. :)

    It's a shame most of you never met Geeky, the first host of this series. Used to make videos and commentate on them pretty entertainingly.

    Like in one race back in the day "and there's Geeky at the back because he was running Comfort Softs on his Honda"

    He was a slice of bread or two short of a sandwich at times, but brilliant guy nonetheless.

    In all seriousness, Ignoring the talent entering the sport, do you guys think I have what it takes to be champion one day, or am I chasing an invisible dream?

    Congrats @Ian_83 and commiserations to @SkengD (but congrats for the manufacturers) :tup:

    And congrats @mrbrendon999, had a good time battling with you and your a decent guy, and dare I say faster than me so the right man got the 10th spot. :cheers: I just hope I get through pre-q regularly for season 8 :scared:

    All in all I think this season was amazing. It was my first proper championship I've entered so I'm very happy to come away with a title. I've learnt a lot, made some silly mistakes along the way, made some friends and hopefully no enemies, I'm a better racer than I was and just plain had a good time. So thanks everyone :):)

    Honourary mention obviously to @rolo912011, thanks for all your time and effort put into the series and for being a brilliant host :cheers: Looking forward to the test races next week now

    And if that offer of spanking a Skyline around Tokyo on Tuesday is still on the table I'll claim it :tup:

    Head over here to sign up :tup:

    If your connection holds and you find the old magic from the Season 6 days you certainly have a chance. You could perhaps start off by having a crack at the Independents title and seeing how you fare. A little less pressure.
