Howdy!

Post by Johniboy on Tue 21 Jun 2011 - 19:42

Gamertag - J0HNIB0Y (the o's are zero's)
Age - 37
Country - Born and raised in Bonnie Scotland, but happily living in "The Big Smoke" for the last 10+ years.
Experience - been playing racing games since Auto Racing in '82. That does not mean I'm quick! Big ToCA fan (Race Driver 2 is my all-time favourite game). Played a lot of FM3 and Race Pro on 360. Shift 2 my new fav (especially GT1 & GT3). More of a racer than a tuner (to say the least).
Interested in - Big motor racing fan. Watch every FIA GT1, Euro GT3, British GT, DTM, BTCC, F1, WRC, Le Mans Series, Indy, Aussie V8's, etc, race that I can. Drove a few laps around Silverstone recently in a Ferrari 360. Loved it so much I'm going back for my stag do!

Would love to, but tomorrow night a busy one for me. When's the next one?
Having said that, if I can make it, I will. Love a bit of RP!

Hello fella. Many thanks. Looking forward to some good, clean racing. Not a lot of it about these days (in the ole public lobbies).

To be honest, I signed up for the Shift 2 GT1 WC, but I'll give any racing a go!

Hi Richy. I went back to the "old country" the other week. Had some good times, as always. The way things a going though, I'm gonna need a passport to visit home soon Wink

I would love to join you for next weeks Silverstone round. Saw the entry list and need to see what's left. Probably one of the All-Inkl Lamborghini's if they are available.

Sorry fella, I'm nowhere near my 360 at the moment. I should have prepared better for the is. Been waiting a long time for a good race and now I'm not even ready!

That's it done. Just PM'ed Richy and Chris.

Here's a question. As a benchmark, what's a half decent time for a lap around Silverstone GP. Just so I can get an idea what I'm aiming for.

Shift 2 in a GT1 car, naturally.

Many thanks. Anything much under 2 minutes and I'll be putting quite a few laps in this weekend!

I'm working on it right now. Sure I can get down to below 1:58. Silverstone Arena is a new one on me, so I need to get some laps in. Hate myself for saying it, but I never liked Silverstone that much. I find it a bit featureless. I really need to use the braking point marker boards at the moment, but once I get used to it I should be OK.

Do you guys tend to run with or without assists?
