Yeah I had a fun time. Only really got the hang of the track in qually as I found some places where I was losing time, and I could still point out a few places where I was slower compared to others at the end of the racing. Steala got a good jump on me in race 2 and had the lead, but the downhill chicane braking zone caught him out and I got a decent rhythm going after that.

I just love these little cars man, you have no idea how much I want a road going version of the UFR for myself! I used to own a FWD track car back in the UK, and learned the basics of FWD on the edge driving, such as letting the diff pull you round the corners so, keep the power on mid corner/corner exit. Oversteer to be treated with a liberal smash of the accelerator etc. All these go against the natural instinct that driving instills, especially if youre used to the RWD/4WD cars in the game, which is most of the cars!

Roll on round 4!

yea its easier to just try avoid curbs all together, so hairly. i think there will be afew casualties / resets here, adds somthing a bit differnet to the race.

Just went and gave it a go, great track but yeah, real hard to get a clean lap. Managed to get into the 1.12s but that was hoiking over a few curbs with eyes closed and hoping for the best! Have also managed to sprain something in my hand failing to score a try in touch today so could only manage about 15 laps total :(
