We tried! But... time to move on...
« on: May 13, 2014, 11:30:43 AM »
Well guys, Steve, Simon, Glenn, Brett, Glen, BJ (in no particular order :)), the time has come to say "Goodnight to Historics/Thursdays"

It is a matter of:
time (I just seem to have problems doing the admin stuff...)
money (extravagance of using it once/week, not the $s out of any one's pocket, jsut the lack of use)
the small numbers
and me loosing some "omph" :(

but i must say I did ENJOY the racing, it was FUN racing but I need to just give it away.
Thanks to all that supported the fun nights, it was a HOOT :)

And reading other posts, purely coincidental around the Asetto Corsa Fun run coming up, I will be there, but that isn't the driving reason (sorry for the pun :))

Bit of shame.   We only had small grids but still had some good races.
Thanks for your efforts once again Bruce....

Thanks Freezer, may be I didn't do that good a job as it was not "motoring along" as it should have after a few months efforts by us all.

I'm sad to hear this Bruce, but i understand.

The small grids whilst being fun, weren't up to what we had in the good old days of big grids and fun races.

Thanks for all your work Flatty.
Cheers

Steve

I wouldn't say that Bruce, I think people are starting to move on to AC, PCars, RF2 as they now all become more polished.

I realise it is not the same but perhaps the Historic Lotus and the BMW E30 could make up an interim "Historics" series?

Probably not....

I don't like the physics, but i'll keep an eye on how the racing goes, and if it is getting good reviews from you guys i may drop in and have a drive... Wont be for a while though.

Fair enough, 17 entries for tonight, at least it's a decent sized field. Physics are a slot car ish until you start pushing it then it becomes a hand full.

Hopefully see you on track sooner rather than later. PS, Bruce mentioned AVM are running these historics for there next season on a Wednesday night.

My hardware would probably be OK but I'm locked into XP because of my gameport wheel
