I don't know that the Alpine is so fast to drive, normaly I'm the only one who drives the Alpine.
And thanks for your Renault Alpine setup. Worked well after making a little fine tuning for Gamepad driving style...:)
Next weekend we will race at Le Mans according to the 24h race there.
Heh heh indeed. Anytime I see you you's in the Alpine not givin' a monkey's about anyone else. Amazing was the speed difference on Dijon tho but none the less I commend that enthusiasm for a car regardless of power.
When I can successfully get back onto online stability I will give the Alpine a run again (last time I used it was on NG Donnington race) and give ya a fair race.

I think it's boring when every one is driving only the fastest car available. So I choose the Alpine :).
Hope that you get your online problems sorted out soon...
see you... Matra-Rancho

Hehe, I didn't realise the Alpine would have another taker on that occasion which is why I decided to go for it. I thought there would be many more Elans.
The Alp' is great fun around The Ring! And the speed seemed reasonable, I wasn't too far off the fast guys' lap times. :)
Plus the Alpine does great on the twisty tracks.. it has decent acceleration and great handling. I think on a track like Dijon it might get left in the dust just because of the long straight...but on Ahvenisto it can kick butt.
I frequently use it for longer races cause I am not struggling to control the thing after 10 laps.
Yeah and you feel faster round coners in one too cause of the revs/high gears.
I'll use it again sometime. It's jus not a car I'm hardcore on because other than Sega Rally 2 I've never had dealings with the car.
Cars like the Capri and Cobra are my favourites.
Capri more recent few years, Cobra since I had a matchbox one from my dad as a kid, to be then sat down for a "History Lesson"...LOl dad's eh?:D
