Updated for AC 1.12.thank you.
Race 1, start 1, almost managed to get through the tangles and just caught a richocheting car as the restart was called, had a good place
Start 2, picked up a PB, so that was good, but out classed and stumbled a couple of times on the closing laps. next week!
PS: Love the GT40!
