Turismo Carretera

Tried this today. Not worth much... basically they made a whole new game using rFactor engine..
in reality its a one average (maybe even less imo, not very fun) mod sold as its own game..  :nope:

Grinn.. but it's a real series.. so i guess it's just like TOCA didn't appeal to germans so they called it DTM and well.. those two names didn't appeal to Aussies either.. so that series was called V8 Supercar      (yes.. i'm on about Race driver 2.. hahhaah)

anyways.. from WIKI: Turismo Carretera (English: Road racing, lit., Road Touring) is probably the most popular car racing series in Argentina, and the oldest car racing series still active in the world, featuring stock cars in the manner of American NASCAR series.


So i can understand it's a business event for sure! The whole of Argentina wants to race these i guess

On the bottom of that page it mentions something about ISI, and it's engine indeed.... i'm not sure if they bought it off them or that they are working together with ISI.  I'm pretty sure that there will be many ppl buying computers and wheels, as i think theyre will for internet isn't yet up to par like it is over here (not saying it's a good think mind you!)... i honestly dont know how far advanced Argentina actually is, but i'm thinking for the gaming industry it might be as far back as nascar racing 2 was for us, not graphicswise, but in the sence of customers "will to buy a game" (as not many over here bought that title, only the ppl who knew what the hell it was.. hahahaha, but i'm pretty sure it was a household name in the US and everybody had to have a computer then or they had to play at a friends house.. hahahahahah)   

tis all too commercial...  i wonder


yep.. wiki'd on a little bit and now taking this topic OT ofcourse...


Who'se ever heard of "South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands" ?


sandwich islands.. hehehe.. made me chuckle and at the same time wonder when our first applicant will arrive from there!

this is theyre flag... and it looks pretty familiar:




and i'm not shitting you... or i've stumbled onto a late april fools joke... but this is wiki's telling me it's "out there"
