Back in the days I always found myself celebrating on the inside when GSRC commentators tried to say "Grand-Prix-Strecke" in proper german pronounciation. Any attempts planned for this one Chris and/or Stevie? :whistle:
Speaking of which... I noticed some nice efforts on drivers' names pronunciation like "Drexler" or "Skeppers" during Spa broadcast. Will the next challenge for @Stevie and @King-kodiak be to have a go on french drivers pronunciation? :devilish:

Hi,

this isn't possible because "Grand Prix" is french, not german.

I'm sure its just an honest mistake, but you appear to have selected the wrong layout of the Nurburgring. I hope this can be fixed by Monday :)

My name should be pronounced 'the legend'. I understand the confusion as it seems like an unlikely name, so I won't be too aghast if you continue to say my name how you already have been.

It seems the "English touch" more often than not involves completely butchering the name :p most British people are surprisingly good at that if I'm honest.

@Stevie @King-kodiak do you want to pronounce @krop's name ;)

If they let me into the next race I'll happily hear their interpretation of my last name :D

I know the Sch combination is super weird, so i would never blame you on mispronouncing it. I found that google translates my surname pretty well so here is google translate:

Make sure to listen to it in dutch, since the english version is completely wrong. :)

Anyway feel free to pronounce it however you like :D

This didn't go as badly as I thought.
Had massive frame rate issues, so started from the back. Not getting a clean qualy lap in helped that.
Frame rate was weirdly OK.
Did my best to lap consistently and stay out of trouble. managed that quite well, with no spins, despite a twitchy understeery tire munching beamer-boat.
Achievement: slowest fastest lap of the race! yay! Still P28. I can live with that.

Can someone upload the replay? I really need it, especially the last lap. My game crashed once I tried to save it.
