  1. ***** Entries and votes so far for the WHC 150 Concours d'Elegance *******

    Huge thank-you to Neilski for doing the list with links below - if you haven't voted please can you review the entries and vote - the winner will be announced at the chequered flag on Sunday.

    Here are the results so far, don't forget, the winner either gets to pick a combi or gets to choose the player to set the combi for WHC154!

    Totall Wrytoff - Moodyryder, Lewisxbone, Pretend racer, Mustang 500, Neilski
    Rod100 - Ivann_11, Sissydriver
    Mike Reynolds – Laughing Gravy
    Sissydriver - Rod100
    Andy-R – Hugo Catarino
    Moodyryder – Total Wrytoff
    Pretend racer
    Hugo Catarino

    Despite being massively impressed by @LeiF's race lap and hugely amused by @Pretend racer's tyre shredding,

    @moodyryder gets my vote.

    His entry actually prompted a change of behaviour! For the second time since I bought it, I loaded PCars2 and did 30 laps of Cadwell Park in the Aston Martin DBR1-300. It's much better than I remembered, it is miles, miles, miles better than the other one, thanks very much for getting us reacquainted!

    Finally a chance to have a quick go - stock with medium tyres on the wrong pressures.
    Transmission feels too tall, are we shortening the ratios?

    Hmmm. Still quite twitchy!
    Perhaps the brake balance and diff need some fiddling with.

    Happy to have broken the 1.48. Can’t seem to do more than 1 lap before shedding tyres though. And that hairpin takes an age to get round!!

    Oh yeah I should've mentioned I changed the gears a bit. I'll check what the new ratios are.

    Have I mentioned my great dislike for this car? Very frustrating challenge for me. Idk know what it is about this car...it reminds me of a stunningly gorgeous woman that I am going to make a move on, I time it right and then we start talking...all goes to **** so fast in just the second sentence..nothing in common..game over, not even worth faking it to get it on with her.

    I lied, I faked it for 2 more minutes but switched to mediums just for the hell of it.

    I can't upload a normal screenshot for some unknown reason.

    Fast car. Fast, like a gazelle. Or a Springbok maybe?


    Excuse me while I go carve another chip on my shoulder.

    Nasty sprain across the top of the foot, throbs mercilessly!
    Overdone it on the mats.:D 2-3 days and I should be OK to drive.
  17. How are we doing for volunteers to help with WHCs? :D

    ...does anyone want to do all or some of WHCs 155-159?
    Please send me a PM. I will help do it with you if needed.

    I'm not leaving WHC or abandoning the post of poster, just to be clear.:)

    In 2nd place...
    @F1415182235 with a lap time of 1.45.022 is a tenth faster than the RSR best. Brilliant lap, thanks for the inspiration for the combi!

    The Lambo proved so strongly to be a “love it / hate it” type of machine, it provoked all sorts of comments this week. Due to time and space I will pick two of very great contrast:

    @Tvvang - “chuffed oot ma gutties!” A brilliant expression! …No, no idea either… but it seems very positive and enthusiasm is what drives WHC!. As we are a global forum, here is an explanation –
    In the 16th century a chuff was a miserable or boorish person but the word has a multitude of ancient meanings. To chuff was to break wind. It's gradually come to be used as a safe alternative to swearing, such as in Yorkshire, where someone who is angry may say "I’m chuffed off. Across most of the UK now, it is used as an expression of delight.
    Oot ma –
    out of my
    - Guttie has been used (in Scotland) since the nineteenth century to refer to anything made wholly or partly of rubber. The word is derived from the Malay "getah percha", the gum of the percha tree. Gutties came to be used for rubber-soled shoes in the twentieth century.” So, plimsolls (now called “Trainers”)
    So full translation could be “farted out of my trainers” or “so pleased, I jumped out of my shoes.” Huge thanks to Tvvang for the added colour provided!

    Also colourful, we had lurid, fantasy thinking from @DriverModFTW and his clearly well practised ability to make a bad choice and / or deal with a flat “No.” With the creeping realisation that he must have experienced some real shockers on his life travels, it very quickly became more awkward than a whole series of The Office. Ended up being a great lap though and from experience, the more you ask, the more rejection you get! We've got his back!

    Thanks to everyone for playing!

    We also have the Concours d'Elegance to round up. Here, rather embarrassingly, are the entries and final votes!

    Totall Wrytoff - Moodyryder, Lewisxbone, Pretend racer, Mustang 500, Neilski
    Rod100 - Ivann_11, Sissydriver
    Mike Reynolds – Laughing Gravy
    Sissydriver - Rod100
    Andy-R – Hugo Catarino
    Moodyryder – Total Wrytoff
    Pretend racer
    Hugo Catarino

    So that means I win, I win, I win!
    WHC150 was unprecedented for Totall Wrytoff. Having never been close to a podium, he won the Concours and had a second and third place around the Nordschleife. I smell a very generous Neilski! Thanks again to everyone for your support. I’ve got a tear or two welling up guys!
    I shall choose a person to nominate (or even prepare….) the combi for 154!
    Thanks again to everyone who took the time to submit an entry, great contribution.

    ***********************WHC NOTICE************************
    :)I am very, very pleased to announce that a noble member of the forum has stepped forward to help out. A huge thanks to @ F1415182235 and a huge thanks from all of you too I hope! Top driver, top man, I’m very grateful.:)

    Onto WHC152 - @Chaos_Chris has already mentioned his familiarity with this excellent beast – two good reasons for the relatively recent repeat
    1. Special request, as explained in the intro
    2. It is also one of my favourite cars - Practice Makes Perfect
    3. I can choose what I like when I like!:p
