    Can I just ask: What car am I supposed to use now? The team column says Chevy, but if I'm reading the colour correctly it says XJ13 or Cobra.

    That's a shame that my title awarding was delayed, as I was preparing myself to celebrate the back-to-back titles. Good win Andreas... :cheers:

    Good racing, at the start, then I found it hard to stay on track. Everything I did was pointing the other way:ouch:

    Well done to Mr Sutsagrd on his win! Your early pit strategy paid off. I had a great battle with yourself and Andreas. I think me and Andreas while trying to catch you actually held each other up. :)

    It's a narrow track to pass on successfully. There is the straight but Sick seems to have the limits sorted out so there wasn't much advantage between the cars.

    It was good to join in again. Shame I'm not a bit more regular since I seem to get on well with the Jag.

    Thanks Paul. It was as much a surprise to me as to everyone else!!:eek:

    I was having a great time battling with Simba and you too. I knew you were faster but as you say, if you keep the racing line it's really hard to pass.
    I was easily passed by Harsk in the first lap but he made an uncharacteristic error which allowed us all a gap. Otherwise battling with Harsk and you two would have been too much.

    So I peeled off for an early pit. However I never thought it would work. I could see Simba at the end of the pit lane about to exit just as I got there but my momentum allowed me to get ahead.

    SSR5 is usually a bad circuit for me but weirdly the reverse layout and the sliding jag seemed to gel!

    That's my win for another year then. :DThanks all.
    :cheers:

    Round 10 Special Stage Route 5 Reverse

    Big congratulations to the winner Sutsagrd and to fellow podium men Simba (2nd) and IfAndOr (3rd). The top three were a long way ahead at the end of the race. Harsk was uncharacteristically struggling with the car and track combination and despite numerous mistakes and half spins I almost caught him for 4th place. The last lap was particularly exciting as Harsk and I were battling for position while Sutsagrd was just a whisker behind and almost lapped us.

    Congratulations to Harsk on winning the championship with two rounds remaining. Simba is currently on 187 points. If he wins the final two rounds he will jump to 237 with 13 points to be deducted (from his lowest scoring round) i.e. a possible final total of 224 against Harsk's Round 10 total of 233.

    Congratulations to all the drivers - hopefully the final two rounds will be exciting!

    Good racing again, if qualified 1st, which was a great effort:tup:

    Car was better here than in Spain, made some mistakes, track is better in reverse.

    Harsk was having some issues, got passed him, then he over took:)

    Yes, unfortunately, I had struggled with this track, since I'm not very good with the tight corners. Tried to catch Andreas, but he kept running away from me, which has made me impossible to catch. But anyways, I'm happy, because Sutsgard has won and he's my teamate for Shelby. If a Chevrolet driver would win the race, I would be very angry...

    Anyways, looking forward to see you guys in next round! :cheers:

    Great photos as always @John Wells - they look especially good this week with the night effects!

    A reminder to everyone that it is the penultimate round this week so hopefully we will get a big turnout - it's a great track so should be a great race.

    I found this Gem on the Ford Heritage section of YouTube - it's a publicity film made to mark the historic success of the "Ford" Cobra in 1963.

    Brief highlights of the Graham Hill Trophy for early 1960's GT cars at the Goodwood 75th Members Meeting held in March 2017 - hopefully this will get you in the mood for tonights race from Trial Mountain reverse:

    Round 11 from Trial Mountain Reverse

    Great close racing last night - congratulations to Sutsagrd on another win - can he continue this streak and claim the final round? I enjoyed a great battle for second with Harsk, but after the pit stop I was unable to match my previous lap times and he escaped my clutches.

    Round 11.jpg

    The next round will be historic - our final race on PS3 and GT6!

    Obviously the above video helped!!
    Didn't expect to do so well at TMR!?:eek:
    I was sure Simba or Harsk would catch me up. At least this was one of the first races I didn't make any silly mistakes.

    Thanks all who came out. It's a shame the grid has reduced.

    I like TM rev so I did try to make it but it wasn't to be. Well done again to Suts, he seems to have caught the winning bug.

    I hope to make it for the Final round at Grand Valley. It'd be a great shame to miss that.



    >> It'll be at 20:30 BST Sick.

    Sick and all

    I can't believe I didn't realise I would be away from home today. So, I'm going to miss the final ever race in Sick's race room for GT6.

    I'm really sorry I can't be there and I was on a winning streak as well.

    All the best in your new rooms on the PS4 and project cars.

    I don't expect to buy a PS4 until GTS comes out or even GT7 and the PS5 comes out.

    Might see you all again then or in another gt6 raceroom while they still exist.

    Been a pleasure racing with you Sick.
    :cheers:

    It was great to be there for the Final Fling. It's a pity there weren't a few more drivers but hey ho.

    I'm glad I managed to make it since I kept Harsk occupied for a few laps. ;)
    Good driving and defending Harsk you really have improved your race craft. Sick and his race crew have helped you I think.

    Since I had a win can my Sick Cylinder GT6 silver driver status be reevaluated? Oh no wait a minute, after all these years, it's too late. :p

    Cheers go to Sick. Shame it's got to end but all good things etcetera.


    See you all around here and there.

    Congratulations to Harsk on an emphatic championship victory. Also congratulations to the Shelby Team for the win with Harsk, SimbaLora and Sutsagrd taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd places. Sick Cylinder was the top Chevrolet driver in 4th, mainly due to the low attendance of the faster Chevy drivers.

    A great series, with well matched cars - our final GT6 series as "Sick's Race Room" has now moved to Project Cars and PS4.
