Sorry if I've overlooked this elsewhere chaps, but can someone give me an idea of what car/circuit we'll be having tonight?

Cheers, Zo.

It tends to be announced very late @Zolon32 so just keep an eye on here, but also on the PS network; if you are not still in the PSN group for these Wednesday races, let me know and I'll add you in.

Today's round will be at the Red Bull Ring (not the short version).

In 1972 De Tomaso took the win in the GT class in 1972 at the Osterreichring - the drivers were: Alex Janda and Hans Schulze-Schwering.

I know John didn't know much about the De Tomaso Pantera - it competed in the GT class of the World Sports Car Championship between 1972 and 1979. The cars were imported by Ford into the USA between 1971 and 1975 where they were sold through Ford's Lincoln-Mercury dealers - approximately 5,500 were sold in the US - 7,260 cars were produced in total.

The car used a Ford 351 cubic inch (5.8 litre) engine mated to a 5 speed ZF transaxle - it earned a reputation for poor reliability - I believe Elvis Presley got so angry with his Pantera that he shot it!

Newsflash - Pantera upgraded to N400

Following feedback on performance and to make the car more lively and realistic we will run the rest of the series at N400 - purchase stage 1 for power and weight then select N400.

Poor Elvis, shooting, his car.

Poor car!

I always fancied owning a Pantera GTS as a kid.

While looking for the above picture I saw this Pantera Restomod. Quite subtle and I really quite like it.
