I as well haven't been on the website for a few days, just logged on the server and saw it had been renamed. I knew what that meant straight away.
RIP Bruce (Flattop). I first raced with Bruce here all the way back in 2007. I can only echo what others have said.
Like many I never met Him in real life but know He was a true Gentleman. I will miss Him here as will
everyone else. My Thoughts and Prayers are with His Family.

My apologies for being so mostly absent on these forums lately. It's of course 100% my fault for not having things ready by race time, notably
Discord tonight. I did install it prior to race 2 but everything was dead silent unfortunately. Will get that sorted properly for next week.
It made me realise How much I don't like racing without hearing everyone else from time to time.
Race 1 was very good with a 5th place finish
Race 2 with all the mess of trying to get Discord working I forgot to load my setup and would have run out of fuel,
so pitted but as I hadn't set a pitstop config that was that.
I probably would have gotten a decent result.
Please accept my apologies Bruce for not posting in here sooner. Lately I have gotten used to just clicking on the Thursday fun night link only.
I'm very sorry to hear of Your ongoing health problems. I think I first raced with You here about 10 years ago for the 5th season of GT Legends, in the
B series if I remember correctly.
As many have said, You are indeed a true Gentleman and certainly a Legend here at XGN, as well as a few other places we raced at.
Thanks for the immense effort You have put in here over the years, managing racing seasons, and for being a great person to race alongside.
I sincerely hope You manage to pull through and get over this health hurdle.
You certainly sum up the saying "it's not winning that counts, but how You play the game" and I do remember You getting some wins as well.
Last of the late brakers

The lap times certainly tumbled from race 1 to race 2.
I purchased the Porsche 1 pack just before start time, and no issues at all with server or mod.
Race 2 my best for quite a while, with 2nd. Both myself and Daveo had some major offs but 4th was so far behind it didn't
cost us too much. Well done Rooshooter on the win, I got nearly close enough once or twice but in the end
the mistakes here and there evened it out.
Had a couple of attempts at downloading this track tonight which both failed. Before which they were predicting a 2.5 hour download. Couldn't find another source. Trying again now. See how it goes
Only if You have the "Red" pack it appears. I don't so see You's next week. Have a good race tonight.

Looks like I missed a good nights racing, thanks to the Flu unfortunately.
I just use an extremely cheap $1 headphone/mic set from msy, but only for speaking on, the audio comes from my Logitech speakers.
I had a Very good nights racing, and don't know whether the update had anything to do with it or not, but I found the Porsche very
nice to drive on this track. It was more than a match for the F40 at Brno. Picked up a 3rd in race 1 so very happy with that.
Race 2 was a bit of a mixed bag, I had made up a few places till I tagged a spinning Mael F40, that put me back a bit in the field, but
some carnage amongst some of the cars in front in the 2nd last lap got me up to 4th.
Overall a good nights racing.

1ST of all Apologies to all the other Porsches I ran into before the final turn lap 1, missed the brake marker.
I knew that pitting would screw me over and it didn't disappoint with the pit menu flashing up on the screen for about 1/3 of a second before
vanishing , and I tried a few times. Obviously I should have used the pit config app but forgot that it existed beforehand.
Aside from that I was enjoying the race quite a bit. I expect the porsche to be a lot more competitive on the tighter tracks, it seems to
have better brakes than the Ferrari and GT40.

It looks like the Ferrari was also a bit difficult to keep on track as well as the porsche.
Fortunately none of my off track excursions involved anyone else.
If I can figure out how to stabilise the car as well as reducing understeer it will be real good.
Probably dreaming a bit too much though.
