Eak! I won a prize! I honestly thought this event was just for fun. Didn't know there was a prize until you surprised me with that pm :P

 

I just have one question. Is that game compatible with a whell? :P

 

Thanks bambaroo :Thumbs:

Sorry for the new post. For some reason I can't edit my previous one. When I click options, it jumps to the top of the page.

This event Is just for fun, but I did mention in the original post that from time to time you may be rewarded :) As for a whell, unfortunately not. But you don't need a wheel for this game surely?

Here is my 1st attempt then :) With a bit of tweaking to the car set-up and some better driving. I might get a second off it :)

Couldn't resist the temptation of some tweaking. So had a lil fiddle with the differential and ride height of the car. Knocked a bit more off my time :)

Had a better go at this today. And on my 44th lap I finally hooked up the 3 secots. But still, there is another 0.270 in there for me. But im on my limit. So I think this will be my final effort (maybe) :P

Renegade! if you get the fastest lap again I might be inclined to make next weeks challenge a lap on Nürburgring with the Fiat 500!

Just kidding XD

Oh yes please! I love the Nürburgring / Nordschleife. I've done many a lap around that track. And with slower cars than the Fiat 500 :P Hoping to get the Endurance race there done soon. :)

Spotted this late on Sunday so only got a few laps in. Thought I'd post my best so far.

Will have another go later sure there's more time in there if I can hook up a good lap.
