OK. Have a favourite track? Maybe we should start with 10 laps on something short. Economy driving the Prius is SLOW.

In the event of a tie, lowest time wins.

Car mods: let's just make sure we're using the same exact car. If you mod stuff, just let me know what you did so I can do exactly the same thing.

Speaking of Nurburgring...

A top gear video.

Here's a potential glitch: how are we going to time multiple laps? I've only seen the timer do individual laps, with the best lap saved in the top right.

If we can't work around that, then we can just pick a long course like the N-ring.

Merry Christmas to me!

I just beat that final driving mission. Before which the closest I got was 2.x seconds behind the lead car a couple of times.

I won in dramatic style: I lost control under braking at high speed in the final S turns, spun out and hit the wall hard going backwards just behind the lead car in the 90 degree turn before the pit entrance. Fortunately, the game doesn't penalize hits on the BACK end of the car, just the front! So I had enough time to compose myself and chase the leader through the last 2 corners, beating him to the finish by half a second.

OK, so not a "clean" win, but it works for me.

No more painful 120 second waits...
