But don't think Fm4 will just finish as alot of people won't be able to just buy a new Xbox (me included ;-) 

 

So most events will carry on with FM4.

I will buy next gen day 1 IF fm5 is a launch title. If not, meh. 

But Church, you're right. I'll be running fm4 for however long because of you guys. Awwwwwww! :)

Have to say I'm already getting really excited about it. Like a little kid on the 24th of December. So many months to go. :(

Nice words JDan!  I do hope you stick around too.    

I haven't been around here very long but have thoroughly enjoyed all the time on the track with everyone.  I've learned a lot and continue to get better at this hobby / obsession.  I don't plan on going anywhere, just disappointed that I can't find a way in my schedule to participate more in several of the series 2O4F members run.  I'm only at 30% on the event list and will continue to chip away at those, but its the hours I spend practicing for a specific race / event I find to be the most rewarding spent in FM4.   I learn and improve my skills much more doing these than the typical event list races. 

 I was  really excited to jump into the BritProCar Event as it fit my schedule and allowed me to participate in a way I hadn't been able to before.  Plenty of  time to practice when I could find it leading up to the actual race event.  The excitement of all who ran that race was infectious.   I ran the Mx5 series and enjoyed that just as much.   Seems Sunday's are about the only days the timing works for me, so I miss out on several other series on Saturday's :(     Just throwing it out there, I wouldn't mind seeing an occasional one off endurance races like BritPro.     

Anything in life that I really enjoy, I enjoy better with a little moderation.  Sometimes a simple break is all that is needed for it to feel new all over again.   Forza is a game,  a source of enjoyment and provides a safe diversion from the daily grind.   A modest expense for the number of hours of enjoyment it is has provided.  It's only a mater of time before the need or  desire to take a break and turn to something new presents itself.   No shame or guilt to be felt about it.  It really is just the natural course of events.   I do hope to see those for whom that time may be near back when FM5 arrives if not sooner.   While I hope that time doesn't arrive for me, I have been playing FM4 since the first week it came out.   

The FM series is the only game I have interest in, so if FM5 is part of the launch for a next gen Xbox, I will spring for it all if not day 1, soon after. 

In the mean time I am hoping I can break 4:15 before Sunday!

Word of advice: practice pit ENTRY! It's nasty with 2 chicanes, one with sticky sand and the second with walls.

On the Ring stay OFF the throtle when EXITING the pit, the "ice"tarmac will spit you in the wall.

These always room snappy :-) 

704ish I believe. Be sure you don't go full width on the tyres as stated in the op  and you keep the rim diameter as stock.

the first race of the series was a blast. Fitzy and i kept ourselves busy looking out of our rearview mirrors.

a little bit of strategy and some fine driving took place.

thanks guys.
