Yes, not as much as I would like but still by far one of the top sims around. What is your OS?

Didn't take much to run GPL though, remember having it on a Win98 PC with 512mb RAM Razz There's an installer at SimRacingMirrorZone: http://srmz.net/index.php?showforum=132

If that doesn't work, not sure what else to do. I've got it running on Win7 using the installer, it will ask for a CD to complete installation too.

I've never been as happy before! Since I was young I've always wanted to own the legendary Lancia Fulvia because my uncle once owned it and I thought it was one of the most beautiful cars I had ever seen at that point. A friend recently contacted me about his own friend who was selling his Fulvia HF, and at only £10,000. So I've contacted him and asked him to hold onto the car until I return back to Britain next Tuesday. As long as there is no rust, I may have fulfilled a childhood dream Smile

That's cheap for a car that rare, especially in Britain. I don't think I've ever seen one on the road over here. Perhaps I shouldn't mention that the Fulvia racing a few weeks ago lasted two laps before expiring.

Two laps! I would have expected the clutch to have burnt out on the start line Razz Apparently it's the Zagato model, rather than the HF. They sell normally at around 10-12000 anyway.

Got my drivers test tomorrow to get my N (it's a Canadian thing), so I will be able to drive on my own.

I hope I don't die. (My car is a Subaru SVX, probably using a Prius for the test.)

Anyone know where I can get a stream for FOX Sports 2 (formally known as FuelTV). The reason I'm asking is because the NASCAR modified race at Bristol is being televised on that channel tomorrow at around 6 P.M. E.T.

My dad and I drove the race car (a 1985 Porsche 944) to a car show across town. I must say, riding in a race car at night while cruising right by downtown Cleveland is a surreal experiance.

The whole story is brilliant, but the sad truth of these kinds of procedures is honesly depressing. While the whole "no ball soccer" thing isn't real, the state of mind behind such rules unfortunately is.
