V8 Supercars was fired up first, with Canon, Fred & Tone participating in a few quick races whilst awaiting further arrivals. Darklord even had a bash to the delight of the "crowd" on Canon’s wheel. A few experiments were tried to reduce lag. (Mick reported that Fred visited him days after the event, and after a lengthy trial of Freds system, the fault was narrowed down to Logitech’s "Wingman Profiler" conflicting with the game. Strangely, it doesn’t seem to conflict with Colin McRae, which is also designed by Codemasters.
Next up, precision rally skills were called for in a close fought contest in Colin McRae. Consistency was the key to success, with someone other than me taking out the challenge.
Battlefield 2 rounded out the evening. After Canon’s early depature, Fred and Tone didn’t shy away from the task at hand, and took on the powerfully honed teamwork of Darklord and Woodie.
The evening ended at 1:00 am with some very weary eyes.
NEXT MISSION: Canon is Director of Operations.
