Get ready for the second DTM mini-competition!

Yesterday evening was the inaugural event for The Privateer’s Pitbox. A total of 12 people registered to participate, which was more than enough to create a fun evening with some semi-serious racing going on.

ACC in 2020: a year in numbers!

Over the year 2020 (with the exception of January and February), I’ve written posts about the player statistics of Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC).

At the time of writing, it’s January 2nd (happy New Year, I guess!). This means another month has passed, and it is time to see how the playercounts for Assetto Corsa Competizione developed in December. After last month’s round-up wherein I summarized five months, I’m back to my regular schedule again. Keep in mind: this will only be a retrospective...

Enhanced Diecast: Hot Wheels 1:64 Ford GT40

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to ‘upgrade’ a Bentley Continental GT3 with some leftover paints I had lying around. When I ordered the Bentley, a different car also caught my eye: a diecast GT40 MK1 in Gulf livery.
