Hi Matt,

Yes I am Smile The championship is fantastic, very close and good racing! It's £1,700 for entry fee's, thats per year, then you have the cost of the car, tyres (£80.00 a corner) cut slick, etc.

Bit of a disaster weekend for me as it was the first time of driving the car since quite a few suspension and power changes, qualifying I had clutch slip, overheating, and a stupid amount of understeer. Then in the race I had same again but got worse and worse with eventually the engine going on me (not sure what damage is yet) so I rolled over the finish line with no engine, haha.

Heres the 3rd racers view on that battle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vckVp-WtqAc

Then mine (however the video contrast was not set correctly so not much to see): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DOdTyaARBKw

Should be able to race this friday, providing it's early? I will be off the game though around 10-10.30.

I'd love to get the metro cup cars on the game and the physics
