I haven't won any races yet (I nearly came second at a rallycross event until I crashed), but I'm still learning and before long, Team Shadica will rule the rally scene! You have been warned.
Oh BTW, I recently got an update for my computer, so I've lost everything, including TrackMania United Forever. But no matter. I should be able to re-install it and transfer my save files across over the weekend, and then, it's back to plotting world domination!
On a side note, I actually met Colin McRae himself at Goodwood a few weeks before he died. I got his autograph and everything. He was a legend. I dedicate all our wins in this game to him. God rest his soul.
