    I believe someone has set a time in the Esprit, however I can't remember who, or if that time was set before the comp. or not.

    I've had a go in the Subaru Legacy, which was terrible. So I tried the RX7 Spirit, faster, but slides quite a bit. So I had a go in the 911 and I think I've set my best time with it, but I'm still lapping over 1:40, so I'll keep having a go until I get into the 1:38's at least Smile

    I haven't tried the Esprit no. Looking on the leaderboard, Cloudburster has a good time in the Esprit (1:37.0).

    Another good car I tried on this track was the Ferrari 355 Challenge.

    Welcome to the club by the way!

    cloudburster has used the Lotus Esprit...

    @ben now it is getting serious and personal between you and me Laughing How did you find nearly a whole second? When I am back home later I'll chase your ghost (if there is one).

    I hit a 1:39.040 in the Esprit-I think this car has at least another second in it. Do you use a wheel Jim?

    Finally broke the 1:40 barrier! Managed a 1:38.7 in the Chevrolet Camaro anniversary edition. It's definitely got more in it, just need to get the first turn and the following hairpin right and I'll have a way better lap time.

    Happy now that I'm in 4,033 place. I'm catching you too guys Smile

    - Anthony.

    No, I use a controller.

    I'd love a proper set-up with fanatec wheel, chair and pedals, but its too expensive.....and the mrs wouldn't appreciate it taking up the living room lol.

    Well, hit a 1:47.543. There's more in the Lancia, but I just don't know if my fingers can take much more. I didn't even notice Ben2012's time of 1:47.544 What a Face Shocked cheers II have a feeling he'll be hitting the track again Very Happy

    There's also a new number 1 : the guy hit a 1:31 in a Lancia 037!!Not quite sure how Question

    My current time is what shall stand.

    Today is the deadline and having had another go both yesterday and today I can't improve my time by anything, so I'm officially done here, but I'm satisfied with my time, I set a goal and I beat it which is enough for me Smile

    I managed a 1:37:465 in my loved Lancia 037 and I am done now with Sunset.
    This evening I start to send the Elise to everyone, unfortunately there is no club livery until now, so I'll gift them unpainted.

    Thanks Axel. I enjoyed the comp (and will also enjoy the prizes!)

    The Elise looks great. I will take it for a spin later.

    For my prize, could I take a Devon GTX please? Many thanks!
