Melbourne or "Wreckbourne", as I called it, was my favourite track. Watching the race video, among other white Focuses, it was easy to tell which was mine. If the race director wasn't so busy counting our Gold Coins, that car would have been black flagged. Funny, back then it felt like going at breakneck speed, hauling that twitchy front wheel drive round the bends and literally kicking rear-ends.

I was wary of getting sucked in, so I picked and chose which events to play, and a few I didn't bother finishing. Of those, Lions of Liepzig is the one that stands out. Imagine going from my "fast" Focus to that! My skill level could only take me to 70% completion and the effort had me reeling. I remember musing over the last few minutes whether to gold-skip the rest.

I tend to stay in a series I enjoy for a while and go back to old races. Back when I opened Acolade, I was blown away by the 918 RSR, guess it prepared me for the LMS Ultra, but not for BMW though. In my opinion, that car is the true heir of the 3.0 CSL, rather than the overpriced M5 we've just competed for. Anyway, raced those cars for a couple of months even going back to the MP4-12C and the F40, Nissan GTR, R8, as far back as the Renault Clio. Thing is, I looked at the F 375 and all I saw was a piece of junk, steeped in history, yes, but still shyte. And you had to do a special event to win it, and progress. The only reason I did the Redline was because I'd just won the 12C Spider - upgraded to PR 62 plus; fell for the gold-trap drag race.

Unlocked Scuderia a couple of months ago still haven't bought the F14T, instead I've been racing the Koenigseggs, the Paganis and just generally driving the cars I didn't get the chance to enjoy properly from Legend. Had over 4000 GC until a few days ago. Strange, this is the car that brought me to this game.

I race for fun.

Started around September 2015. I must have spent eons just doing the time trial at Suzuka East circuit. Invalid Lap! That's all I had time for, that and a few races. (Level 172, 114 cars later, the game stats probably still name the Ford Focus as my favourite car)

Melbourne or "Wreckbourne", as I called it, was my favourite track. Watching the race video, among other white Focuses, it was easy to tell which was mine. If the race director wasn't so busy counting our Gold Coins, that car would have been black flagged. Funny, back then it felt like going at breakneck speed, hauling that twitchy front wheel drive round the bends and literally kicking rear-ends.

I was wary of getting sucked in, so I picked and chose which events to play, and a few I didn't bother finishing. Of those, Lions of Liepzig is the one that stands out. Imagine going from my "fast" Focus to that! My skill level could only take me to 70% completion and the effort had me reeling. I remember musing over the last few minutes whether to gold-skip the rest.
