    Then you can ban all motorsport because it was, it is and it will always be dangerous!

    Alister Reid hit the flint wall yesterday and left a bit of a mess, not to mention losing a tyre/wheel lol.
    Anyone can have a moment like this when you are driving on the edge like these people do.
    It takes much bigger b***s than I have just to get in the car...

    That was *Richard Hammond voiceover* Touring Car legend Anthony Reid.

    Sorry, mind in a tizz after all the excitement yesterday. Alister McRae was there if I recall correctly and my mind was jumbling them up :boggled:

    Anyway, the point still applies, whoever it was this kind of driving at the limit carries risks.
    After the crash they restarted and someone skidded out at the same point almost straight away so they had to stop the runs for the rest of the day. Totally understandable and the correct decision.

    Fantastic day. Now back to the pics while I watch the 2 hour special on Sky2 from 3pm BST...:D

    I've been watching most of it via the live streaming. It's been a great weekend for the show. :tup:

    There have of course been a few crashes.. which is somewhat expected with fast cars and the narrow hillclimb course. If they didn't want to risk the cars, they'd be parked in the paddock areas and there'd be no fun of watching the cars make their runs up the hill, or get the moments with the legendary drivers driving/riding their classic race machines.

    Some GT cars I filmed at the FOS:
    - Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision GT
    - VW GTI Roadster Vision GT (something went wrong with the sharpness, sorry about that)
    - TVR Cerbera Speed 12 (crazy car included since GT3) :-)

    Everyone has their own opinions, right? Some people might like it or hate it. Some people might find it sexy or :censored: ugly. At the end of the day, Vision GT cars are concept cars for GT6 (I'm not 100% sure on this). So we don't have to worry about those manufacturers putting the VGT cars into the production (except Mercedes-Benz VGT).

    They said that particular corner is quite tricky to manage and a lot of cars have crashed on that spot over the years. I guess that poor Chris Hoy had an understeer due to carrying too much speed into the corner. But yeah, the crash gave a little chink in the Nissan's armor.

    What was the point of updating it if they didn't even add any new goodwood events?

    The same thing I said in the news section. Complete waste of PD's time.

    But how much time do you think that really was?

    Could be days, weeks or months (1 in a half or 2) to model that single stature. Really, IMO, time is better spent improving the game than redecorating a track.

    I'm inclined to agree, but judging by the scale and quality of the work done to the track, I doubt it was time they could have spent modelling a new car, upgrading a standard car, or basically doing anything significant.

    Because of the small amount of work that appears to have been carried out, basically

    Because that's the job of the car modellers, not the track developing team.

    For anyone that's interested here's what 1360 horses sounds like.

    PD - if possible, please please please can we have the ONE : 1, LaFerrari, Porsche 918 and P1 in the game at some point in the future. They were all superb to watch and listen to.

    I'd also love to see some of the classics added, especially the 2 silver arrow Mercedes which were driven up the hill together by Sir Stirling Moss and Lord March

    But I'd take anything that was being driven on Saturday, all the cars were great to watch.



    If anyone is interested, I have uploaded all my photos (including lots of footage of the new sculpture) now to :

    I obviously know that... Than Kaz mind as well make the track modellers redo other tracks. Oh wait, they've already started doing that.
