I am not a good qualifier. Let’s get that out there. I normally lap faster in races with full fuel and cold tires than I do when trimmed out and pushing hard. So the idea of an inverted grid, or … Continue reading

A new season of Simautosport’s BTCC Cup is upon us! As usual, I expect to have fun, but to get my ass whipped by faster drivers. Mid-field is great, anything above that is superb. Great turnout for the first race, … Continue reading

This race is probably best forgotten. I’d had a frustrating day, that got even more frustrating with this race, then doubly so after it ended. It’s a shame as although qualifying wasn’t terribly productive, yet again, I thought I could … Continue reading

This race was good fun. This track is a lot of fun, it has a great flow to it. This was my first time racing here, after running a handful of laps previously, I knew it fairly well, but was … Continue reading

I know quite a few people who might be interested in hearing my thoughts on the Elite Dangerous Alpha version 2.0, so I figured I would put them down in a blog post. Firstly, it isn’t Elite Dangerous – yet. … Continue reading

I was pretty excited about this race. I know the track, I know the car, what could go wrong? Not much, really. My race went OK. The pre-race and the participant numbers were marred by race joining issues. The league … Continue reading

Ever had one of those tracks that just kicks you in the balls? That’s how this race felt, except with more actual ball kicking. I probably should have just sat this one out. Again, another track I hadn’t run, with … Continue reading

I was pretty excited for this race. I even practiced a little bit before the event – on the wrong track. I confused Putnam and Poznan. But hey, at least I won’t go into Poznan blind. ;) So, contrary to … Continue reading

Considering this was my first league race in three and a half years, I think I did okay! With the track not being one the company made, I hadn’t actually run it before. I did know the whole of the … Continue reading
