Thought I would post this here, just got it from my YouTube channel, can we give them anything ??? Whoever doesn’t know them, it a huge site that has all the latest videos and sneak previews of new racing games.

TeamVVV posted a bulletin 9 hours ago


No new info on Project Cars yet, hope to have some soon. Yes not having a comments box on the Channel page is a bit of a fail.
