You can watch V8 Supercars here http://www.v8supercars.com.au/v8live/schedule

They make you pay to watch them live, but you can watch replays for free.

My apologies for the missed bit.

John


This is awesome!! Its alway good to see tanks racing. Now they just need to bring back the wagon in BTCC and with honda having the civic wagon it can be a BTWC (British touring wagon champions)

Nascar has started excitement for those who enjoy it and boring for those who don't,like me =D. I don't find nascar fun to watch on tv like baseball. I prefer seeing other races like formula 1 and where there isn't left turns. Thanks to all those vets out there for protecting out country(and other countries for those of u who r in another country). One day I will become a Marine like my dad only an Officer =D.

Mmm, Daytona is not my favourite event by far, but any excuse to look at monster cars is a good excuse.

Great article and great videos. I especially like the video of the V8 Supercars which I like a lot more then Stock cars since they are properly working cars with working headlights and windshield wipers and they drive in all types of weather conditions. Plus like someone already mentioned before me Stock car racing is pretty boring since almost all races take place on racing ovals.

Thanks for another great RVM John!

I watched a show on tv last night called Richard Hammonds crash course. Its were Richard tries to lern different jobs in a limited time. And last night he tried to be a pitcrew member at a indie 500 race and it didnt go so well. The amount of work that these mechanics do is incredible and this makes me want to watch the indie 500 even more. Its not just racing the car, its all the work that goes in to the car to keep it running.

Great RVM again John, now on to the Rivals for this month!

I'm having a major change in my employment this month, so I've been way behind in the rival racing department...

In the VIP, you don't appear to have done much, but I've got you beat in all of them except the Drag and Drift races (haven't looked at them to see if you've gotten anything yet)
In the Monthly, I've done the hot hatch one (auto cross at Road Atlanta), the Hot Lap one at Top Gear course, and one other I can't remember right now. You should have rival challenge notices in your mail. ;)

Thanks for the reminder Gemini. I will hop in there and set some times. It has been a busy and challenging month for me outside the office.

Happy Weds folks, I hope you FM5 ers are enjoying the new Road America pack. I sure am.

As always, thanks for putting this together John. Funny how the Daytona pole always seems to get people's attention. Last year it was Danica-mania and this year the #3 gets it in surprising (at least for me) fashion. Looking forward to the race the Duels tomorrow night and the race this weekend.

Aussie V8 highlights are always welcome and I will endeavor to "youtube" race highlights as the year progresses.

Cheers all!

Road America is awesome......again!!!!!!!!!

First thing I did was jump in the 787B and wind it up for a race in free play. That car and track were made for each other.

Yeah V8 Supercars with Volvo in it. I'm exited to see what their pace is. They ran that car for a few yeas in the Swedis Touring Car Championship (TTA or STCC).
And amazing artwork from Lazarus Jackson there.

Ahhhhh that photo contest is awesome! I absolutely love it I have GOT to get my hands on FM5 it looks absolutely beautiful. Very talented photographers there, glad I got to see that :)

It's funny about Holdens, I didn't know they existed before I started playing FM and now my go to R3 is a Holden, I love driving them in the game. This is what Iove about Forza and John's articles, I'm always learning something!

Great thing from TORA. But better they could had Assists to ANY as then the step in for people to drive with this event is bigger. On assists it's a no go for me (no ABS), also I can never manage a second driver anymore and donators.

Good to see the #3 back on the track, kind of mixed feelings on it though. Maybe it should have been retired for one of the best drivers ever, but I'm not a huge follower of NASCAR, so I'm not even sure if they retire car numbers. Great RVM though!!

Hey John, another great article, I had an old VW dune buggy years ago, it had the van rear axle so it was awesome for clearance off road, but the fun came too an end when my brakes went out on it, and when we tried too remove the rear wheels I found out they were seized on for life...lol, so that was the end of my toy. I always enjoy the Aussie V8's...being a chevy guy I'm impressed with all the fastest times being set by the Holdens, but I have no specific favorite in that series. Nascar on the other hand is my obsession lol, I even watched the first live race on TV with the big fight at the end. I was a hard core Earnhart fan long before he won any of his championships, it was awesome watching him duel with Tim Richmond...he drove the 25 folgers coffee for Hendricks...for those who don't know He died of Aids from too much fooling around and partying. Now I'm a Dale Jr fan. I have no issues with Dillon driving the 3 car...I just hope he keep's his ego in check and doesn't start acting like Kyle Bush !! I'm anxious for the duel races tonight....Go Dale Jr !!!!!!
