None that I know of. I assume Glyn is trying to be "politically correct"  :D

David,

Yes, I was trying to correct....however I was under the impression that `politics`  were not a discussable arena in ADC forum  :lol2:   so just count me as being " correct"   :P

Come to think of it....WHY  aren`t there any females??  some women are darn good drivers and I cannae believe that they don`t like sim racing  :(
maybe we should begin a `females` recruiting programme...that`s if we guys aren`t afeared of `being done`  by a girl!!! :rolleyes:  <_<

Have a nice day all

There are really only three "known" women in GPL circles. Alison Hine is a legend in these circles, and is truly the Queen of Sim Racing. SandyK is from New Zealand and races a bit, and there is and "Ekron" out there, but I've never come across her. Is a shame, as a racer is a racer, irregardless of sex. On the real-racing side, ever heard of Katherine Legge (Toyota Atlantics)? The woman car drive, period. And yes, although I don't car for roundy-round racing, I watched Danica Patrick when she was in the 'Atlantics, and she certainly can drive. But I think Katherine has a "Legge" up on her.

Oh, that was bad.... :)

David....I can`t believe you actually said that  <_<  :D

But there are several `lassies` racing in various types of machinery  and some of them are damned good.....I heard something to the effect that `Legge` is trying out for a F1 test driver position  :mellow:   now THAT would be something if she got her `Super Licence eh ? :trink4:  :D

I can think of a few...Self-centred, egotism, boorishness, sexism.
Sandy K hmmm...now into rFactor only recieved a sexist tirade at the hands of a small-minded git hiding behind the ubiquitous 'nickname'...Indeed if I was keen on sim-racing and was female I'd be more inclined to hide behind a nickname too.
Come to think of it there's probably quite a few female racers but with the good sense not to allow their chosen past-time ruined by such arse-wipes.
cheers, Mark.

Ahh...the good ol' 'Kerry Packer' mindset hehe.
P.S. oh yeah...the site. Very well done chaps, and not too ostentatious like that 'Mybroga' effort hehe.
O.K. John. So...when ARE we gonna cut and run??

The updated site looks excellent!  Good work :D
...and there's no damage to the car.....except to the car itself.
