    Hello,
    Just signed up, long time GranTursimo player since hell back when my PS1 was new! Prior to that I had an Outrun Sega upright machine (198:cool: and played stuff like Pole Position and even more ancient stuff in arcades prior to that!

    Did you have to lift it before it would play or something? :cheeky:

    You owned one?! You must have really wanted that game :p I still remember a Ferrari simulator thing I used to play in an arcade. That was great, first 900 degree wheel/h-shifter/clutch I'd ever used. And it had 3 big screens and speakers behind your head. I'd buy that if I had lots of monies, and could remember what it was called. :phil:

    That's exactly it. I was going to say it was F355 in the game :p Probably the reason why I think that's my favourite sounding Ferrari ever. Man that game was incredible. F355 on Monza. Good times.
