    Don't worry, it's an error, we're working on it.

    EDIT: Fixed.

    I have a question regarding the Bonus Event; I've signed up for it and submitted a time and a replay, but it's highly unlikely that I'll make either of the races due to my work schedule (bar work, late nights woop!), does that mean I get the bonus credits or do I have to both in order to be eligible?

    It's either the time trial or the online race, so you're good to go.

    Money...money...more money. And ...if we can sell our cars between phases even more money.....I am trying to figure out how good...or less than awful the TRD Celica will be this coming weekend....at least it is a good handling FF...which some might say is a oxymoron (with emphasis on moron :dunce:)

    I think the Celica will be good. It would be silly to buy another car now.
    There are good handling FWD cars in the game and real life.

    I was replying to Ned, he already has a Celica.
    For others it will be a tough choice.
    Maybe Paul will give us more info on keeping/selling cars and PP levels for the next cup.

    Well I've got choices to make. It's 35C and 85 percent humidity here at Buenos Aires, and we are still in spring :banghead: so I'm not going to turn on the PS3 now, but there's a storm forecast for tonight (Sweet not-even-summer-yet rain) and the wife is away for a couple of days, so, if the storm doesn't mess with my internet, I'll be opening a practice room later today if anybody is interested. FR so send me one if I haven't got you yet :gtpflag:
    Patrick already has one!

    During my last test at Rome, I got this:
    fluke.jpg

    As you can see from the other lap times, it was somewhat of a fluke. Does it count if we get the .001 in practice? :dopey:

    I felt the same way. Detuned RX-7. Got a lot of laps at 26.4, 26.6. None faster than that :ouch:

    Ill try and get the PP and track info up today after some more testing so its available to see for the International B part A Championship, inc FF Cup, 80-90's Cup and FR Cup.
    You will be able to sell one car only after the Novice Championship, the details of how this will work will be posted when the time has come to sell after the the full details off the next championship are released.

    :tup: It's a lot harder then you think to hit the exact time of .001 slower, I hope someone can do it in a race or quali to mix it up a bit for the Championship.

    I was running mid 1'26s most of the time. I did break the lap limit couple of times but only when I nailed both turn 1 (hard to do in FWD car) and the kink before T2.

    Javier - try Honda s2000
    Crispy - nice one but sadly it won't count :) I managed to do it in the race room about 5 minutes before qualification.

    Saw them. Love the S2000, one of my favorite non-racing cars in the game, but couldn't see how I could use it afterwards. It's also more expensive. Needs an oil change to get to 425 too, so no more power available for future races. Am I missing something here Mike?

    I never said it was cheap or practical :)
    It's a good fit for this event though.

    Just checked. 428pp at the dealership. Will give it a try, it's my original choice, but I was trying to be strategical here :D
    Edit: Turns out I might have been just too tired last night, because I went below target with the RX-7 after a few laps :confused:
    London, is a different story though

    If needs be you could join the 2nd and 3rd race if we run 2 rooms, but you would only be able to join when there is a break between races, if we have 1 room and there is free room you might be able to join. We will wait till the night to make a decision on late arrivals though.

    Here is the tracks and PP range for the next Championship, the rest of the details will be available not long after the results of the Novice Championship.

    National B Championship Part A

    FF Cup 405 pp: Comfort Soft Tyres these races will be held in one night
    • Cape ring Inside
    • Special Stage Route 5 Clubman
    • Matterhorn Short Track

    80's - 90's Cup 415pp: Comfort Soft Tyres these races will be held in one night
    • Silverstone National
    • Eiger Short track Reverse
    • Motegi Twin Ring West

    FR Cup 445pp: Comfort Soft or Sports Hard Tyres there will be 2 races on one night
    • Deep Forest Raceway
    • Autumn Ring
    • Apricot Hill
    • Cape Ring South

    National B Championship Part B details will be released at a later date, but don't worry about a car for that ;).

    I swear I looked at that site weeks ago and again before I replied that the US GP started at 19:00 GMT, but now it says it starts at 20:00 GMT. :confused: Oh well, sorry guys, do what you gotta do.

    Hmmmm. My current choice would work for all but one of the upcoming races (the '99 Nissan Silvia).

    Of course the one that doesn't work is the one after the next one (FF), so I would have to buy another car for that. Either way I think my Miata's days are numbered.

    Heh, I know exactly how hard it is...which is why I only got it on a fluke during practice. The anxiety of approaching the line with a lap time still under target is a lot to handle during the race. You're either made or you're fitted with 10s cement shoes.:lol:
