Def check the 2018 Dutch GP from this list. Also, the '96 Spanish GP and '09 Catalan GP have 2 of the most batshit finishes you'll see to any kind of race.

There are plenty of other fun 500cc era races that I'll try to throw up on the winter heat channel this weekend.

I wish the '00 250cc British GP was around in full, because that's an all time bugfuck crazy race.

The Race also has a website now that is a recommendation for me if you want F1, MotoGP, or Indy news. It's a slick website.

I'll also try to remember to put on this rFactor 2 race tonight, it's midnight Australian time Sunday night / 1 pm UK time.

also the Super GT testing is still underway at Okayama and the new GR Supra is looking mean in proper liveries:

This is a virtual race, they could choose any track in the world, and they've gone with...the Nurburgring GP circuit.

All of which are better than Nurburgring GP, rF2 has Zandvoort for gently caress sake. Really I was more shocked that they'd use the crusty old Formula ISI car which hasn't been updated since around 2014 and sucked then as well.

Call me cynical, but it's a DLC track and they were hoping people will want rF2 and then buy the track, too

The FISI (yes, a holdover from ISI) isnt as broke as gently caress as half their other content, half of which is DLC too

That's true, it sucks but at least it isn't as broken as the old F2 car in the game.

In the future people will run studies on how the hell rFactor 2 continued to exist past 2016.

The UK government did actually take foot and mouth seriously though, which they're not doing here. Though they have said there won't be medical support available to events, which was probably the sign to the TT that they had to pull the plug.

Holy smokes, the ACO delayed Le Mans from June until September 19th and 20th. Wow.

First time that Le Mans has been moved since 1968, when civil unrest meant it couldnít be held in June.
