Long Time Gone

Postby Alexd70 » 28 Apr 2020, 00:12

Hey, I used to race on Forza with the club on Xbox 360 about 5/6 years ago and can remember having some really good times back in the day, I’m just wondering what game you guys are racing on now on the PC,

I’d imagine I’m a little bit far gone to get into any races with you guys after being completely MIA for so long and it’s really lovely to see my account still exists, hope you don’t mind a little bit of an input from me here or there on the forum,

On a side note,

If anyone remembers the ‘87 Passat B2 I had back in 2013/2014, I wrote that off on the Nurburgring In the rain hitting both sides of the barrier on the track, RIP Wallet.

Now I have an ‘86 Jetta and a crappy ‘05 Cmax as a Daily Driver.

Thanks, Alex

Wow this is a blast from the past!

We're racing rFactor 2 currently, an informal club race tomorrow to prepare for the next season. If you want to make a return (I think that would be a record gap between starts - SECS was my first season) you'd be more than welcome!

I’ll see what I can do, I’ll have to play with a controller until I can get myself set up,

SECS? that was with the Seat Cupras wasn’t it? I was with Connel, I couldn’t finish that season because of work giving me a ton of overtime and I have never really had contracted hours since then just the normal shifts and any shift the boss fancied me doing but I’m on furlough now, so that should help. :lol:

I just wanted to test the water make sure I wasn’t the guy they forget to delete off the website :D

For next season, the cars are a paid mod (details in the main thread) but the tracks are all default content/free mods.

For GEARS, you will need the Reiza pack for two of the tracks.

PS If you use Discord, we have a server. It's usually more active than the forums these days.

Blimey, are you the Alex who wandered into our lobby by accident and started racing anyway and then stuck around? Amazing, that was so long ago! Welcome back!

I did delete a load of inactive user names at one point, but only the ones who weren't all that nice!
