My missus wouldn't let me go there in the Imprezas and since she saw that German lady in the Transit on Top Gear she won't let me go in the Forester.
So have fun!

Sabina was on an Aprilia RS250
I was on my FZR600R
She went passed me into the corner and carried so much more corner speed that I never saw her again

Remember its not power at the ring

Ira,

Have you been to the ring before? (cant remember if you said you had)

If you have then fair enough, but the games wont prepare you for the ring, only the ring can prepare you for the ring! :p

Never been but it can't hurt to help sight the place up a bit?

But

As Jeremy Clarkson discovered the games are not like the real thing. There's no risk of wiping yourself out - forever. So it does effect your driving style - I've wrecked more virtual Imprezas than I care to think about on driving games but in 100,000 miles of real Impreza driving never hit a thing - except a pheasant. Mind you I did not try to go everywhere at high speed.
Still I am jealous - can't find that smiley!

Plus on the virtual ring you dont have to keep looking in your rear view mirrors for people catching and overtaking you.

On the real ring no matter how fast you are you will always get somebody whos faster and ring etiquate says you have to move over to the right and let them past.

Plus if you wrap your car its a long walk home :p

And that's what matters!
Mine gets nervous since watching the guy in front of me spin into the grass in his Formula Ford a few years back - it looked more spectacular from where I was sat I promise.
