The only way I stay connected and up to date with pcars is "This week in Project cars" .. If possible, pls give us the weekly information weekly. I actually do not have the time to read the half day whats going on at the forums. I don't think I am the only one. Thank you :)

You're not the only one. My available game time varies from week to week and having Rob's post to refer is really nice :-)

Guys it would be great to have a new "this week in Project CARS".

Hey Rob, what happened to the weekly (ish) news threads? Is this one really the last one? I know it must be quite a job to put them together, but it was very much appreciated for those of us struggling to keep up with the rapid pace of development in the excellent pCARS!!! I must confess I have not spent as much time as I would like on here over the last month, and I fear I have missed out on quite a lot...

Any chance you could revive this for us? Would be eternally grateful!

These updates should be emailed out to all members each month, they are great for seeing the changes and additions in one package.

I agree, that would be awesome. Kind of a monthly "progress report".
