    Downloaded it last night via STEAM, never got around to playing it though. I'll give it a run or 3 and see what its all about.

    Im DL it just for the sounds. I used to have a very nice big block powered 69 Camaro that kicked ass, this game looks like it will bring back good memories. Thx

    just got done toying around. Its very technical driving, piss poor graphics, and I found it almost a must to use the folloe cam mode to even get around the course.

    Reminded me of TOCA graphics, with the BMW simulator over the top of it.

    It was still fun to listen to... Just I couldnt keep the car going in a straight line long enough to enjoy it...
    (probably didnt help that I am worthless when it comes to games)

    But for free, I cant "whine" too much...(lol, I made a funny)

    Free you say? I'm not really a fan of Touring Cars, i prefer dirt and mud under the tires, but since its free I'll give it a shot.

    Edit: IF it wouldn't unlock on the 22nd. Damn you, Europe!

    Back in the day (before there was internet and PCs we had cars; big, loud, oil burning, 60 cent a gallon gas, smokin fast cars)
    And there is no equivalent to the sound a big block with headers and a solid lifter cam makes as it shakes all the windows in the neighborhood....

    Damn those were the good ol days...
    (my neighbors hated my fricken guts)

    Where does it say its free? Granted it doesn't have a price beside it in the Steam listing, but if it was going to be free you'd think they'd be shouting about it...

    Ah, right, that makes more sense. I think this is going to be one of the first Simbin titles I pass on TBH. I've got everything up to GTR Evo, but they really need to change to the ew Lizard engine before they get any more of my money.

    Why bother? One good racing game is enough.

    Not necessarily, depends on what tracks it includes.
