I really love to hate this track. It was my first GPRO DNF (1991 F1 in the McClaren...1 each fried transmission) and the harder I try the slower I go. If I do a nice leisurely lap I get a "fast" lap time.

"Fast" meaning fast for me...pathetically slow compated to other Sierra times put in by the local ET/Jawa love baby aliens!!!!

Had some time open in my gaming calendar...but I SO do not want to drive a Holden....Sad 

Are the Holdens easy to drive?

I may wait to commit to see if something else opens up...

I've driven the Holden and Mustang a lot and I can say this:

Compared to the Sierra and Skyline it is immensly easier to drive.

The M3 is slightly easier to drive because of it having less engine.

If you are consistent you can beat the Sierras and Skylines Smile

For battling, it is brilliant.

For hitting a wall of two, they take like a proper panzer tank :D

If you are scared entering a corner, you are pushing to hard,
if you are bored entering a corner, you aren't pushing enough,
if you hit it perfectly, it will be better than love

Hey Jon-thanks for that...
Sorry if it wasn't what you were looking for but the consensus is:

They are easy to drive if you give yourself an evening or two (maybe 1-3 hours) to get used to it Smile

Vincent had booked the car a few posts before you but the entry list had not been updated. So I've given Mark #26 instead, but other VKs are available, let me know if he wants another number Wink

It looks as if no one is bailing...and I should probably practice sometime...

I'll take the #39 Holden VL banana-mobile....

Is it too late to stick a pile of tires at the right hand kink which leads onto the back straight? I just think a lot can be gained by cutting that corner slightly. Would have said sooner but today is the 1st time I tried the track with these cars.

That is the preferred line. Everyone will be barely missing the wall. Watch replay of last time these cars raced here.

All the video's i have watched, There has been a big kerb there and the drivers stay away from it (89, 90 and 91 F1 support races). Cant find the replay from last time HSO raced here, Said replay wasn't available. :smil20: 

Dont see how cars will be close to the wall there as there is a big kerb on the outside too, Or i guess im not pushing hard enough.

Was just a suggestion anyway.

EDIT : Found replay, Know what you mean now Mike, People are just launching it in there, And yeah are very close to the wall. Totally bouncing over the outside kerb! So ignore me now! :D See you all tomorrow!!
