Shit, shit shit.  I haven't checked the forums for a bit so was absolutely shocked to hear this devastating news.  Last I heard Bruce was taking time out to deal with it all but was still in good spirits.

I'm still shocked with a tear in my eye and have to say that I echo everyone else's comments about him being a genuinely welcoming, warm, humorous, and all-round decent person.  I'll always remember talking to Bruce when I first started, him having a laugh at some of the twisted rubbish I came up with I'm sure just to make me feel welcome to XGN.  He was always a gentlemen on track and was generous in how he behaved toward others (even when getting cut-off or ran into).  Also a great person to chat with when the servers went down.  I'm just regretful that I wasn't around for the last few seasons with him.

What a tremendous loss to the sim racing community, but I'm sure nothing compared to what his family and "real life" friends must be going through given the type of bloke he was.  I still can't believe it, but I guess the best one's are taken to a better place.  I'm sure the bugger is setup with a giant motion rig and 10 foot OLED screen playing AC on a super computer as we speak!

RIP Bruce.  Forever immortalised here at XGN by equally great people.

We all know how you really broke your wrist  :o

Am I late to the party with these jokes?  Surely...

Hope all is getting better Bruce.  It's been a while, but it was always nice to hear from you both in the forums and on the track.  Here's to a better road ahead and many more fun times on track.

So what's it like?  Any particular stand out cars.  Damn the 2004 F1 car takes me back... sounds so nice in the vid.
What's the Lotus '49 Ferrari equivalent like?  Is it similar to the Lotus '49?


Where is Marty these days?  I miss his musk.

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we all want to race the Reliant Robin in the next season.  So let's do it!

Bah, wish I had my rig for this.  Love the Exos.

Bummer are you away from home or did you get rid of your setup? Is it still the pedals issue maybe.

Pedals.  Plus life and stuff.  I'll be back one day, but at the moment new house furniture and other living expenses are taking a priority. :)

What's the new "wind" feature like?

Not that I need any more.

There hasn't been much news on AC for a while.  Have they said much other than a console update?

I saw this as well.  A good concept. It goes to show that gaming and sim racing, esports, etc. Are being taken more seriously these days by the wider public and obviously becoming more popular.  It's obviously just a marketing ploy, but if a team as big as Mclaren are actively trying to engage the sim racing community it goes to show how big sim racing has become.

I'd love to take part but I don't think I have the hardware, or more importantly the time (not to mention the skill!) .  The greater the competition the more time you have to put into perfecting a setup which takes a lo5 longer than perfecting a track IMO.

You guys should have a shot though - it would be good to see a few xgn'ers throwing their hat in the ring. :)

I don't know why they don't have a fire truck with the jaws of life and other vehicle extraction tools at these types of events.

Poor fella.  Did they say why the car he ran into was almost parked on the track?

I subscribed to Getflix for a month, paid for it and never used it.  But it was a good month.  Does that help?

What about a 2.5 hour race around Magione?  Robins???

RBR lost any hope of challenging for the championship when the FIA told them to remove their fancy suspension system.
