    This could be a very tactical race :ugeek: , because the car is electric and in a 40 lap race you will have to stop to recharge, which can take ages (ie Pit in - go put kettle on - rejoin race :lol: ) Haveing boost on negates the tactical side of things.

    As it stands boost will be off but it will depend on how many turn up this week. Expecting ChrissP to join as he will be back from Belgium or where ever he went, Plaxinator said she will join if she can empty the sand out of her knickers in time :shock: :lol:

    If there is only a few shall probably end up doing shuffle races like we did last weekend.

    I might have to give this one a miss. I'm burried in a pile of schoolwork that needs to be finished by Monday. :(

    Thanks all, I think GT5 may be coming to an end. With only a regular few it hardly seems worthwhile,

    I do like playing GT5, unfortunetly my timezone is 3 hours ahead of everyone else's so i find it hard to stay awake after 9 pm.
    Maybe I should join the Russian Racers club?

    There were 7 of us last night, I thought that was a reasonable number. When Spruijt can make it that'll be 8.

    Also, endurance isn't everyone's cup of tea, especially not Plaxy when she's p***ed! :lol:

    I don't think the game's dead yet. :)

    Yeah last night was quite a good turn out, but I did say "regular few"

    I know real life stuff comes first and people cant make it all the time and sometimes, like youself and Halo recently, you just lose your mojo.

    Was nice to see Plaxy on GT5 again even if it was only to keep an eye on me :lol:

    I think im going to go back to how we had a little while ago, shorter races and possibly finish up with a NASCAR race as they were always fun.


    (also I posted that last night and I was in pain as I have got an abcess and was a bit :cry: :D )

    Moi? Drunk? Never!

    Endurance races I do find somewhat boring. Particularly as I am completely tosh at GT5 for some reason. Halo did mention something about brakes last night. Maybe I might try using them.

    I think that's a good idea, it works well. Some weeks could be specified cars and others could be shuffle races. :)
