Pre-Race Interview

1. After the first race what are your thoughts on the formula gulf 1000?
Not to crash! Otherwise I like the car. Does not do so well unless you spend the time to tweak it for each track. It was surprising how much each track affected the set up to get it to handle easy.
2. How do you think your race went last week? What can you do to improve?
I felt satisfied, but I need to watch out for strips and curbs that can throw this car off balance pretty good. Probably not such a good idea to try to pass in corners along another driver, and risk touching their wheel and go flying.
3. What are your favorite cars in Project Cars?
McLaren, Audi, BMW

I will not be able to make the race due to work.   See you at Oulton Park

1. After the first race what are your thoughts on the formula gulf 1000?

    a) They are fun to drive, but are very unforgiving.  I can't wait till the season is over.

2. How do you think your race went last week? What can you do to improve?

    a) Qualifying went great.  The race is another story.  Not to mess with a good setup that can net you high 1:07 to very low
         1:08' for an entire tire run and be stable over curbs.

3. What are your favorite cars in Project Cars?

      a) GT3,  Any nostalgic racer minus open wheel.

1.they are fun once you get the hang of it.car really hates any trail braking or turning under deceleration at all.
2went ok lost sight of Havana after a few laps couldn't catch up close enough to get a draft and was losing a second a lap after fuel ran off..happy with second.
3 like the old cars any excuse to use the shifter.lol

I had a lot of fun racing with Shneeb and HockeyDAD in this race. If it wasn't for the long left-hander right after the corkscrew, I may have put up a better fight. I went wide at that corner several times in this race. Every time I did so, the grass at this circuit slowed me down massively. It was as if a parachute was deployed each time I ran off track.

Good race to all.started off in fourth making up one spot with hawks battery debacle. Was in a few seconds of the leaders most of the race but again made a few mistakes and Havana was a good 6seconds ahead.after my pit which took forever I was lapping lapped traffic and totally rammed hockey dad .my bad .finished with a damaged car but it was manageable. Congrats again to Havana master class

Well it turns out, I was off with my fuel in last night's race. The crew did their job & I panicked enough, I couldn't do 2+2 towards the end of the race. Anyhow, I saw a lot of action that race, had a blast and even watched the whole thing again today on twitch.
PS: I sent Undead the link, but he appears to be off the xbox most of the time. My channel isn't hard to find however; some_evil_dude.
