Title: S5000
Post by: Bacchulum on September 20, 2019, 06:41:34 PM
Anyone else keen to see this get started this weekend?
I'm stoked Rubinho came over, and he seems to be getting to grips with it:

“In the first session the car was definitely taking me around, and in the second session I was taking more control. And the smile comes to my face. It’s a great feeling to be able to conquer the world.”

A big props to GRM for preparing these cars.
Only one retirement, and 8 cars only had their first run on Wednesday. ;)

They sound approximately 1000x better live. Even the TV nowhere near does the sound justice. Even the TCR cars sound heaps better live than on TV.

I reckon the F1 paddock will come out from under its rock when these things line up in Melbourne next year. ;) 8)

Yep, they have a beautifully deep tone.
