    Race day!

    For those who have not practiced this tricky little course, you might want to get in there early tonight if you've never been on this track with track limits in place. I have a feeling a few are going to complain about it (it won't be turned off, so..) It's wholly driveable and the limits are well within reason if one learns where they are and what is expected by the "track officials" (the sim)

    Also...watch the braking zones! It is VERY easy to lock up and run over the car ahead on these tight corners (*cough, GILLES, cough :P)
    If you're following another car, be sure they aren't going to be braking in the same identical place each and every lap. It's tricky. It's better to brake super early, be a little slow on entry, and execute the exit nicely rather than plowing into the corner and having no exit speed. It might "feel" faster doing the latter, but I promise, it won't ever be.

    This track is tight, narrow, short, and a pain in the rear (which equates to a good time, hopefully)
    They'll probably be some door banging. Let's all play nice and make sure door banging doesn't become car shunting, please and thank you

    How much longer till we can classify them as "classics"?

    Brazilian Stock Cars. Yes, they are part of the base game. Actually, they are "THE" content (as in, that particular series was initially the primary focus of Reiza back in the GSCE days)

    Thanks for letting us know. We were wondering what happened. You never miss races. See you next time.
