These start at 3pm EST, 8(?)gmt, every Wednesday, one track and cycle up through the classes, informal set up, lotsa chatter, sharing of techniques, tunes, paints even! Don't worry if you're late, jump on in.

I know people have been slowly acquiring the new systems and a few more did so over the holidays so I wanted to remind everyone these are still going on and a good way to get acclimated, ask questions about the game, the system even. I had to ask how to join a party/game initially.

So, keep it in the back of your head and try to attend when able, it's a good time and educational! (never thought I'd say that).

Shelby Cobra parked in 1974 worth up to $1.4 million.

"One of the holy grails of the collector car world and possibly one of the world’s most valuable Porsches extant will be offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction in Pebble Beach, Calif., next month.

The 1969 917K is probably the most desirable version of one of Porsche’s mightiest competition cars. The reliable and powerful flat-12 engine, combined with lightweight aerodynamic coupe bodywork, was tailor made for endurance races like The 24 Hours of Le Mans. Picking up where the Ford GT40 left off, (and also sponsored by Gulf Oil in the iconic light blue and orange livery) the 917K helped show the door to Ferrari in endurance racing, leaving them to concentrate on Formula One, where they remain today."

Best guess is $20 million plus...THIS is THE car that took the checker flag in the Steve McQueen "LeMans" movie...

Possibly the world's most valuable Ford offered for sale

"RM Auctions of Blenheim, Ontario will be auctioning a rare open Ford GT40 prototype at its sale in Monterey, California this August. Although the auction company hasn’t disclosed a pre-sale estimate, it will almost certainly be in eight figures and set a world record for a Ford-badged vehicle sold at auction.

This particular car, chassis GT/108 was the first of only four GT40 roadsters (the vast majority were closed cars) and it’s the only one of the extant roadsters still in its as-built configuration including unique nose and tail sections. It was used as a factory demonstrator by Ford and Shelby American. Famous drivers from Carroll Shelby to Ken Miles, Jim Clark and Dickie Attwood all spent time behind the wheel of GT/108."
