Hi Everyone!

Post #1 by macto » Thu Feb 25, 2016 9:33 pm

I'm 44 years old from Rotherham (ey up) and I've been gaming pretty much from the beginning when it was just 'Pong'. Over the years I've pretty much owned all the main gaming consoles and up until fairly recently hadn't used a PC for gaming since when Windows 95 was brand new.

The last console I owned was an Xbox One mainly because I love my driving sims and Forza was the only real console option. Anyway, long story short - I won some money and thought the best thing to spend it on was a new Gaming PC as Project Cars was around the corner - and I've not looked back.

Only problem was my friends list was completely empty on my new Steam account (still not got many on there) and thought it was about time I searched for a new community, I'll make myself at home if you don't mind and have a read through some previous topics to get a feel for the place and work out who the ones are to avoid :D

Will do, I'm kinda hoping I didn't come across as a 'good' racer - just consistently average but fair and clean, a bit too fair to be honest. I wait for too much of an opening to overtake :)

I've added a link to my profile in my sig cos I couldn't find a link to yours.

Edit* - Nevermind, I've found you

Yeah I'm not too fast over a single lap but I usually end up at the front when others spin off :)

What kind of lobbies do you race in? Full damage, no assists, qualifying, how many laps etc.

Forgot to say that on steam, 10 - 15 mins qualy, 5-6 lap races or endurance we set at about 16 laps with a bit of time progression and weather changes :)
