This, I'm finding it very hard to criticize somebody like Alice saying she is not good enough for Formula One, not good enough for lower categories or in other terms 'is not ready', without being accused of being 'sexist' or whatever.
The misogynist bandwagon is getting ridiculous, in a world where people want equality can you not say Powell is not good enough for Formula One in the same way I would say Gonzalez or even Chilton are not good enough for Formula One?

We're only going to see a return of coded messages to drivers like we saw during the team order era. Although I disagree with Intrepid, I think it is a bit pathetic to hear Formula One drivers asking where they can improve during the race or an engineer like Rob Smedley asking Massa to brake a bit later or something.
Engineers in F1 are some of the best minds in the world exploiting a rule book on a technical basis, the FIA need to understand that and stop trying to create frivolous rules and focus on the real issues of the sport like Abu Double.
It brings me great pleasure to welcome Oliver Feistkorn to Team Vires today. Oliver has been a friend of a number of team members for a long time dating back to when I first started Live for Speed. Oliver will join Adam Wisniewski to participate in a range of series in LFS. Please give Oliver a warm welcome!
Team Vires welcomes another pole!
Although he's been with us for months now, it's time we make this official! Welcome Sebby Wojtkowiak who joins our full squad and will be assisting us with iRacing mainly once his school works dies down again! Welcome mate!
In other news I thought I would give you all a small update on what we're up to and what our plans for the future are. We're all a similar age so we've all been finishing school, starting university or starting jobs which take you all over the world (looking at Morgan!) On a sim racing note, we're waiting with excitement for driver changes in iRacing, a proper netcode and active community in AC and further updates in LFS, although I'm really happy to see developers interact with the community recently.
Hopefully we will see you all on the track very soon, in this sim or the next!
I admire the fact you are such a perfectionist and that you would rather have a complete product be released than something with, as you say, 'terrible flaws'. It's great to hear that the feel of the new tyre model is fantastic, and I wish you all the best of luck in trying to balance everything else.
In terms of the original post, it very much sounds like Eric has spent his time wisely and made further fictional tracks. I could obviously be fantasising here but I'm sure I'm not. It's great to see more interactivity from the development team and the community!
While I don't think this is why things are being delayed, it is certainly a creative and possible idea. Sure LFS is near dead now, it's been going that way for some time and it's really not 100% down to there being no updates. I've grown up on this sim, grown up with people my own age and unfortunately for LFS the entire generation has moved on. We're all at university, or living our lives, or settling down, it just isn't realistic to drive all day every day anymore. And those who do take it seriously have moved to where all the other drivers are - iRacing. And why shouldn't they? Regular updates, cash prizes, a decently run system, a professional outfit.
I'm sure some people will flame me or whatever, but we're a bit old for that now are we not? Let's say I enjoyed LFS while it lasted, had some of the best times of my life with the people here, all good things come to an end and I'll still pop in from now and then. I, as I am sure many other people, will be back in a flash should S3 come out and there be some regular updates.

It's a song by DJ Hazard, I'm guessing it's a remix of a song called "Never Feel The Same" however with DJ Hazard he keeps his songs exclusive for live sets and never releases them unless they go mainstream. Best is to find it on another mix and hope someone has isolated it into an individual song, It's a ****ing banger though!
Quick shout-out to Tom Ingram who is confirmed at Speedworks. This guy has put in so much effort since he was a kid, he was slightly older than me so I used to watch him race before I went out for my race and he was always at the front. Now he has his chance to mix it with the best in arguably the most competitive BTCC season for a decade.
