Good Afternoon Tora - New Driver Rico Banderez

Post by Rico Banderez on Sat 24 Mar 2012 - 3:24

Gamertag - Rico Banderez
Age - 27
Country - Australia
Experience - Previous member of RWS. Entered VW Scirocco Series, 2.4 Hrs of Nurburgring and have clocked up a good number of hours tuning and racing. I was a mid-pace runner on the RWS.
Interests - Formula 1 and Music are my main interests! Huge fan of McLaren and have been for years and I'm a bass player and currently looking for a tech/prog metal band to join once my gear arrives from the UK
Expectations - At this moment in time I’m mostly looking forward to getting involved with the enduro racing.
How did you hear about TORA? - Came very highly recommended from a friend

More - Hi all,
I love tuning on Forza! It's an artform and I love that everyone has a different approach to suit driving style. Myself I like to tune the vehicle as well as I can to reduce the need and reliance on Anti-Roll bars.
The interest behind this is taken from McLaren and their MP4-12C and the fact that it has no roll bars.

I love the idea that camber, toe, springs and damping can give you that extra grip to get round corners that bit faster and then getting gear ratio's nailed can give you optimum traction out of a bend to nail an apponent.

I personally believe it's a never ending battle between car and driver and that ad advancement in one area can often lead to the advancement in another.

My goal here is to simply have fun and enter some long distance races as I love the build up to a race as much as the partisipation. endless laps of a curcuit in development mode on Forza before racing some ghosts is just great!

anyway - that's enough from me at this moment!

I look forward to meeting you in the track!

P.s. - my xbox is currently still in the UK so it may be a couple of weeks before i get it back and am able to get online. I also know that Australia Internet (until the NBN is finished) is rubbish at times so I may suffer more than most unless I can get myself straight onto the fibre.

I would love to have entered the Sebring but certianly Le Mans (having been for the last 3 years)

Endurance Racing is what I'm most looking forward to in General

thank you for the welcome :-)

Awesome. Well the ISCC (our version of Le Mans Series) championship consists of 1hour 15 minutes races and only half way through, though might be too early on a Sunday Night, Monday morning for you.

If your able to do the Sebring race, get 1 or more people together, then there is 1 space left still for a team, and join the back of the grid. LMPC would able ideal but not essential, I can get you a car too.

Sounds Epic but yes the times wouldn't be great for me - plus I've not got my xbox in Australia with me yet... its still sat in a crate in the UK.
I'm just waiting for it to be shipped out here.

I do have another person that I would like to race with so i'm sure i can get a team together pretty quickly!

When you mean LMPC do you mean like the Oreca rahter than the Peugeots and Audi's?

I have actually worked already on a tune for an Oreca so I'd be more than happy stepping into it!

Are there many races on English Friday & Saturday nights? they are the most likely races i'll be able to enter
