    Boy do I sure have lots of catching up to do. Anyway, I've had some other people say the same thing but they said if they kept trying a few times it paid off so don't give up hope if it happens right away tomorrow. I will also have the stars at 3 which I believe is standard. That has helped some with some people.

    well hearing that you have your car tuned in much better than the last time is a bit scary as you pretty much tore me a new one in the last race.

    ^Ah young lad. When you arrived at the track did you get your parking lot instructions in German or English?
    Yes Apricot Valley has German citizens living there. However to keep the 'International' in the airport title the folks needed to know english.

    Now if you want, I'll translate the race for you.

    The intent (to the best of my knowledge) is to start our normal racenight at 8 like every week and get some warm up and casual runs in. The track will most likely be A. Hill but that could be a track time decision. This is usually the time when people are still filtering in. Then ROUGHLY 8:30 depending on who's there or how many are there, we can start the real A. Hill "EVENT" (add really cool theatrical music here so it sounds more dramatic).
    By the way Stock, Light blue is easily the fastest color. The only problem is that color has a tough time staying on the track!!!!!

    No,you need to bring your own Shelby, one WILL NOT be provided. Follow the guidelines in post #2 as far as restrictions. Get an oil change, change paint , wheels etc. to taste. Send Tarkus1 a FR on PSN and stop by the room at 8PM E.S.T. for some warm ups before the race and enjoy yourself. If you have the cash, bring all three sets of racing tires. RH,RM,RS to give you the most options with tire wear.

    Ok, fellas.
    That was a good time out (being booted off and being hit while on 2 wheels in Tokyo - who was that? I wonder how it looked from behind - notwithstanding).
    I'll get some good cars (I wasn't ready for the other races) and especially a Nascar, so I won't kill the fun for Daytona. And a headset. Typing is a pain in the ass.

    So, yes, I'm from Brazil (although I have visited Pittsburgh and actually enjoyed it), the US flag was a oversight due to being drunk and with 2 buddies when I played GT6 for the first time when I got it for myself for Xmas.
    I've gotten plenty of flak for it in some local rooms, one of the reasons why I started searching for a better group to race with.

    Since this was my first time racing online with people what weren't out to bump me off the road (they thought I was the only foreigner, and since I had no headset...), I say it was a great amount of fun and I'll be back next Thursday for sure.

    I'll send people FR in order to be able to see them online and whatnot and catch you all next Thursday at the latest.

    Take it easy,
    Flip

    Would anyone be interested in running Sunday nights as well as our normal Thursdays? I love this series so not to take away, just to add to what we already enjoy. I'll be running it if I see interest.

    Hey guys, great night of racing. JJG12345 came in and ripped it up at Apricot Hill. We had some new people come in and enjoy (I hope) our little band of hooligans. 2 weeks from now will be Spa Francorchamps for the next installment of The Spinning Arrows Club. Next Thursday will be back to casual races. Check this thread to see the updated PP's that we will be running.See you all soon.
    Here's a little picture of Stockerace's command central.

    I'm going to be away this weekend, so I'll do it next week at some point.
    I haven't done the NASCAR races in career mode yet, so it will be interesting to see what they can do.
