You know you're addicted to TORA when..

Post by nickyf1 on Tue 18 Oct 2011 - 23:43

- You talk yourself through a lap of Le Mans like Alan McNish in TI24.
- You can draw from years of experience of online racing to confidently argue the race stewards decision while watching real racing on the telly.
- You find yourself paying more attention to the quality of restarts from particular drivers on the telly (I often find myself going ''ooft, nice jump!'')
- When you go karting with friends, you feel quite a bit of pressure to perform, as they know of your online endeavours..
- You consider yourself a racing driver, not a ''gamer''!
- Winning the TORA GT championship would mean just as much to you as winning the Monaco Grand Prix, the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Indy 500.
- When you post a poor lap time while online, you instantly mention the fact that you did faster laps earlier (we've all done that)

I can't think of much more...

Too true. Its one of FOUR sites I have up at all times.

I've been posting at 10-Tenths since 2005, and I have only managed a measly 4,500 posts.. Here its been since the start of 2009, and that's made me write almost 8,000 posts..

Have to agree with you both! Constantly reading stuff on the forums and butting in where I feel like it Razz

And have to say whilst ten tenths is useful for rumours im not .uch a fan of the lack of friendliness

10-Tenths can be good, but the discussion is of a very different tone to here.

For example, the video of the female blogger who said ''Mark Webber isn't living righteously'' was taken with good humour here, but on 10-Tenths, a moderator locked the thread and gave me a warning for posting it.

Its much better for hard in-depth discussion, especially the Sportscar forum!

...You turn up to the same race weekend as M&M Racing, and because one of them is wearing a Superdry t-shirt you immediately assume and ask them if they are actually sponsored by them.

I can't really remember, I have one that looks like a Superdry T-shirt. I could have been though. I'm so confused.

When you realise you've been working on this for over FIVE years!!!

And your workmates ask you more about TORA than about your real life!!

When you think if it is a good idea to talk about your lap times or your car tune. Then you confide in yourself that everyone will be focused on their cars and real life too much to notice what you've done around the track or your car, only to find out that everyone wants to know. Even if you are competitive in D lobby for that race.
