Hi Rob

Thanks again for those threads, really valuable.

I just have a suggestion after farting around in other forums (Especially German/Non-English ones). First I thougt about translating this post in german, but that makes no sense because you used clear and "simple" english words that should be translatable with Google. My suggestion would be to announce "This Week in Project CARS" by yellow banner.

I just observe that some guys don't get every important info because they struggle with the language and this forum becomes bigger and bigger. So for non-frequent users that would help to stay informed.

thanks for the summaries Rob. :)

Not sure if this is the right place for it.
But I experience in this week build that the game chrash when alt-tab out of the the game on the moment you try to go back to the game.
Didn't had this before anyone else have same thing?
