    Spot on and thank you, Paul.



    Two pics from our Thursday test (me, Paul, Dusty & Mallet).
    Special Stage Route 5_18.jpg
    Special Stage Route 5_20.jpg



    The media has caught on and here's the cover of our morning paper two days ago;
    20151016_105118.jpg



    And here's the USA Today four days from now.
    The day after we race.

    There are 52,565 people following this day on Facebook.
    It was half that number only two weeks ago.



    :D

    There was some serious lag going on in that second picture. Probably a few years worth. Somewhere from the 1980's at a guess.

    Thank you Paul, three other concerns please....I tried the track and could not find the county hall clock to drive through or the professor and I'm concerned there might not be any lightening on Wednesday will this cause any problems?

    Hi fellow time travelers,

    I have had the pleasure of having a conversation with
    Mike Smith, the owner of http://www.october212015.com and the
    founder of the Facebook page October 21, 2015 - Back to the Future Day.

    He has managed to get 55,000+ people liking his page and the number is
    increasing by almost a thousand each day.

    He left us a message for our race on Wednesday;



    Mike has been planning for this day for a long time and I asked him about when
    he first got the idea for the website;


    These are his thoughts on the trio of Back to the Future films;


    I truly hope Mike gets to reach 100,000 Likes before Wednesday night. It's certainly not
    impossible if you go by the current rate of people finding his page
    and word of mouth. :tup:



    I couldn't resist making a replica tune of the original DeLorean from the trilogy.
    It's a bit lighter than the GT6 untuned version we will be racing.


    Here are some fun gtp links;

    Holy moly, just had my first spin in the Delorean. What beautiful handling. It sounds pretty good too. Really looking backwards to this yesterday.

    Cheers, Zo.

    Arrive at any time and if it's already started just reset your flux capacitor for an hour earlier and try again. ;)

    Actually, unless told otherwise by Jocke, I'm setting mine for 9:00bst(uk) and hoping that's correct.


    (Just to confuse things for future races, the clocks in the UK go back to GMT next weekend)

    Yes, 21 hundred hours in the U.K. is correct.

    Me too, Zo.


    I've been looking at the FB page and the likes are almost up
    to 62 thousand now. :bowdown:

    Toyota USA will apparently be releasing a recently filmed discussion
    between Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd, the teaser was put on
    YouTube six days ago and the full length video is set to be released
    tomorrow on the 21st.

    How are you ABS guys finding the joys of none-ABS driving? I love it, I feel it brings a whole different dimension to the game (oops, sorry, simulation :))

    Cheers, Zo. BTW, just had a 40 minute run, and I can't imagine anyone having to pit; tyres at 8.8.8.7. and loads of fuel left.

    Cheers, cheers, Zo.

    The whole different dimension is good fun. How many laps did you do in the 40 minutes? I did a run at it the other day & I think I managed 22 laps. The first few laps were a bit ropey though.

    Edit: 22 laps must be a mistake, the lap times were between 1:56 & 1:59 so it was probably just 20 or 21.

    I think I completed 20 inside the 40 minutes, and went on to finish the 21st in about 41 mins 21 secs, or there about. However, the car was beaten to hell! For the first five laps or so I repeatedly slid into the barrier to the right between the two left handers about 40 seconds into the lap. Dammit! That's something I'm going to have to avoid in the race, I want to finish with an immaculate Delorean, I gather they're worth a bit on the second hand market.

    Glad you and Coke are finding zero ABS fun, I honestly think it does add to the immersion.

    I wish @FergusMik was still around.
    Pretty sure he wouldn't have wanted to miss this race.

    I like it, Zo. Can't say I have tried it on that many cars in GT6 but the
    DeLorean (with it's relatively weak power of 130 bhp) seems like
    a good starting point.

    I imagine 500+ bhp would be a completely different story.


    I'm trying to put images and videos into spoiler tabs so that it might
    become easier for those not browsing through a PC.

    If we didn't have a race tomorrow I know where I would have been.
    Cinemas throughout the country are showing all three movies back-to-back,
    and only on the 21st. A total of 6 hours and 32 minutes for £12 or $18.

    I'm cheating though by watching part 2 right now.


    There is a DeLorean one hour from where I live according to the department of vehicles.
    It hasn't gone through a vehicle inspection since 2001 so it's probably just sitting in
    someone's shed or something. I'm thinking of contacting the owner. Maybe she wants
    to sell it. :)
    Though I probably won't have enough space for it and not enough cash.

    My favorite scene is the intro to the first film, when Marty is turning
    on all those speakers.
    And also the tandem police cars and the stairs/roof scene in part II.


    By the way I will create a poll after the race where we can vote on the
    best looking DeLorean. :tup:

    I really must get around to watching these films. I haven't seen any of them!
    Do I get disqualified? :)

    ABS - I dabble with and without it. Once I've set up the brake balance I find it quite good. On a FFB wheel you can feel it going light when they start to lock up and it allows you release the peddle. It can allow you to take more speed into the corners. It also can allow you to go skidng past in a cloud of tyre smoke!
    Jocke's right, the power restricted DL is a good car to learn with.

    Don't worry, I've found you a smaller and cheaper alternative...

    We're here.
    [​IMG]

    I will turn visible damage and voice chat off today in order to
    prevent any lobby headaches, and also keep the lobby room quality on 3/5 stars.


    Mike has 72,000 Likes on his FB now with some hours still to go. It'll happen.

    No. :)

    That left rear tyre is in a dreadful state. :lol:

    That model is obviously a cut price version of the real De Lorean, so it probably has a leaky capacitor which would tend to flux up the rear tyres.

    It'll still get you there, plus or minus 10 years.

    The benefit of course is that you can return to when the tyres were new.


    I'll put a bid in for you. The starting price is 88 krona.

    My favorite scene starts at 3:19. It's so wonderfully over the top.


    I think it's more a case of 'entering-the-event-right-before-joining-the-lobby' than anything else.


    87,960 likes and counting.
    They've started a countdown too showing hours left until 4:29 PM (Pacific Time).
    It's apparently 7 hours to go.

    I heard today that there's a DeLorean in a museum nearby. I need to visit there. :)

    There appears to be quite a large number of them stuck behind this young lady.

    I'm not sure exactly what services she's offering, but it appears to be something to do with the door mechanism.

    I'd like to announce now that I've not been on GT6 much for a while now, and I've done no practise for this haha. It should be great fun though!

    Already coming up with my excuses ;)

    Thank you for hosting tonight Jocke it was a brilliant nights racing, must do it again last week.

    Has to be one of the closest intense races I've had in ages with some really close racing throughout, I know there was a few bumps through the race and apologies for that but I think with racing that close it's unavoidable.
    Dusty, that was really close at the end almost neck and neck across the line absolutely brilliant. must add it's a shame Zolon couldn't make it hope your ok Zo
    Cheers gents

    Thanks for hosting a BTTF event on this special day. :tup:
    When I enter a lobby, no boost is the first criterion I look for, boost is not for me.
    I don't think it's bad that you tried it out, it's just not something I enjoy '
