    Harsk and Rich, as I pointed out above the first leaderboard, I have used the scoring system Sick wrote about later- quoted here for reference.

    You'll need to fill me in on this, didn't think we did penalties or reviews.

    Terribly sorry about the mix-up yesterday chaps. I came on at eight, erroneously thinking that was when it all kicked off and I'd have an hour to wrangle the motor around Brands on glass tyres. Then I spent fifteen minutes putting a retro livery on the Cobra Daytona, which was the wrong car when I finally joined the room. I was in a bit of a tiz, and just banged the weight down and down, waiting for it to turn red...

    Oops. It's a hell of a pity, because I haven't raced such a fun combo of car and tyres in a long time.

    See you next time, when I hope I'm more organised.

    And sorry for pinching the quickest lap with an illegal motor @jammy21 ;)

    Cheers, Zo.

    I tried one years ago, might have been TT on PS2, but didn't enjoy it. Riding is so much about the body and there's no Playseat for that!

    Thanks - that's great - very helpful!

    I did consider that, but I decided to just count the top result - it fits an informal series

    Years back on GT6 we did reviews, but eventually it got out of hand with poor @IfAndOr who was the unofficial Chief Steward spending inordinate amounts of time poring over replays. One guy started writing essays about all the driving errors - I think he is the only person we have banned in the last 10 years.

    We can do reviews if necessary, but with a fun series of short races with only the best result from each round counting I hope they won't be needed.

    The apologies are all mine - I just had a new fridge delivered - which kindly arrived half way through my dinner - why when they had all day! The old fridge leaked water all over the floor when the delivery guys moved it and I slipped spraying my remaining curry all over the kitchen cabinets - and unusually for me - the air turned blue! I didn't think Mrs Cylinder was going to let me race, but luckily I just got the silent treatment!

    I set up a new room for the Cobra and tried to set it to non-fixed ownership (so people can keep racing after the meeting, but my game never allows that option to be changed!). Like Zolon I was in a Tiswas and left the weight for the Mini - it has now been changed for the correct figure!

    PS - glad Zolon liked the car and tyre combination! I watch a lot of historic racing at Brands and the cars move around a lot in real life as they have to use crossplies with a replica tread pattern and hard compound.

    PPS - I took a photo of two of my Cobra's together which unintentionally sported different tyres and noticed that the Comfort had a vintage tread pattern, but the Sport featured a modern one!

    Ah ok.

    Well, there was a guy who made burnouts at finish line and ruined people's races in Can-Am Toyota 7 Series and as result, he would not be welcome to race here again.


    Penalty?

    I loved that game, on PS2, the new games, on PS4 are very immersive, feel lots speed in cockpit view.
    Play in chase cam most, yes but one of those would take, a full room in a house.:lol:

    How do I paint exhaust on Cobra?

    Don't know, sorry. Mine is just the way it came. Had a quick look at the manual (where I found the stripe method) but nothing there either.

    You mean like this @John Wells?

    It's not that difficult to do but hard to explain, if that makes sense. But it's all to do with decals, not paint. You need to "wrap" one around it using the projection options.

    The exhaust, bumpers, windscreen frame etc can be decaled using the "other" section.

    Fellas, I've been invited to join in a garden darts/BBQ/drinking session tomorrow evening, and since the wife fancies herself with the old arrows I do feel the need to bring her down a peg or two. Accordingly, I have severe doubts as to whether I will be able to join you in the historic racing.

    Sorry... Zo.

    I thought I'd better not mention your addiction to "scapes". Oops, I just did. :)

    Blame @half_sourly he's the one responsible - the one who taught me how to use the livery maker!

    Not sure who forced me to make the motorsport liveries of the world for the Jaguar D Type, but it has been a good way to learn how to use the livery creator while also learning the colours - who would have thought that Egypt was pale lavender and Hungary was a green rear, white front and red bonnet!

    @Harsk100: You are quite right, apologies for the mistake. I have fixed it now (also went over all the results again to check for other errors).

    @richroo: Would you mind doing the necessary on page 1 please?

    @buybon355: They're onto us, I'll have to give you your fiver back. :cool:
