    As much as I dislike the Corvette to race in it is quite photogenic. And while I still prefer PC2 I've got to admit GTS's camera mode has the edge. So in a combination of those 2 facts here's a few snaps from yesterday's race.

    I expect you've seen this @Sick Cylinder but it's just appeared on my YouTube feed so I thought I'd pop it in here.

    Spa is a very good shout. Probably be on the limiter down the kemmel but other than that it'd be awesome

    Thanks Paul great shots, still trying photo mode in GT Sport.

    Watched a excellent documentary, that was on Sky Ferrari Race To Immortality. Mike Hawthorn, Peter Collins and other team members. Motor racing in the 1950s, thrill, speed and danger.
    Here's clip.

    Just to make sure, is the race going to happen? And will tuning be allowed?

    I'm out. I cannot race in a championship where harsk is allowed week after week to race so dirty with no punishment. He takes the fun out of it with his bad driving and win at all costs attitude. That's not what I'm looking for in online racing. If he is in front he blocks you, changing direction and weaving. If he is behind he simply rams you out the way. Does it every week, been doing it for years. @Harsk100 is the dirtiest driver I've come across. I don't want to be in a lobby with people like that. Good luck with the series, maybe see you again if harsk is not there

    Yes with bb on this he's never changed and probably never will yes he wins but at such a cost upsets most that races at least once a season. Then comes out with the old I sorry no good on this track every time. I drive at the back lol and even when I get with a sniff of top three try to be clean. Sick room one of the best So don't mess it up for the rest Harsk tack a break and have a look at you driving man only a game.

    I´d rather like to race against BB than harsk. So I´d support a (temporarily) ban of harsk.

    Clean racing means doing everything to avoid any contact with an opponent.

    I'm very sorry for all of my dirty driving everyone.
    Unfortunately in the past weeks, my willing to win has spoken louder. :ouch: I tried to be the most cleanest as possible and I'm very sorry for Buybon if my driving behavior is unacceptable.

    If I have to serve a ban, then I will do, if necessary! Or if necessary, I might take a break and not attend the next races for a while. I'm very sorry everyone. :(

    This ^

    @Harsk100 - I know what incident upset @buybon since I was watching it live (after joining late).

    Some contact is inevitable at times in sim racing and I think everyone understands that fact. We all have different skill levels and should be able to adapt to each others abilities to try and avoid contact where possible. It's when you expect contact from certain people it becomes a problem. BB is not amongst those I'd expect trouble from.

    I class it as a good race when I've had good close battles and not disrupted anyone else. The scoring of points is far from my mind. It should be an enjoyable experience not an exasperating one.

    It's got to be said that what I mentioned above has been gone over many times before and we're back to the same situation. You are a good fast racer when you put your mind to it - and I've seen that. But because you're so competitive it can sometimes ruin any good intentions - and I've seen that too, many times!

    Here endeth today's lesson.

    Thanks Andreas, you're always clean and fair, that's exactly what I'm looking for in online racing

    Sardena - Road Track - B II (reverse)? Seems to suit the Corvette and not too long.

    Just a quick note to let you all know that "Need for Speed Payback" is a free download at the moment. It might be rubbish, but if you have the space it might be worth downloading - Note it is quite large at 24GB. I haven't had time to try it yet and will quickly delete it if it is as bad as the last NFS that I tried.

    For those who missed Goodwood Speedweek live stream, 3 programmes on ITV4, download them. Great to see the circuit in its autumn colours, some cars hot brakes and flames.
