Also if I get the opportunity then I will be driving Donington in a friends 250 twin cylinder shifter kart (with long circuit body) Happy days
And let me guess... you have been in an F1 car.
I've done all the sims and all the tracks ... Silverstone is one of my favorites.
No matter what you say.

i dont need to go around silverstone in a f1 car to know its boring, but i have been around it in an escort cosworth. Lol you stick to racing on simulators because if ever you drive it for real you will be disappointed. Donington FTW

No thread is officially crapped out until The Bandit makes an appearance.

So, going back to the original topic, the real reason there are a lack of mod drivers, is most racers are at home spanking off to dodgy pictures on their ceilings.
Please close this thread before I see the Hoff or Richard Simmons.......
