PSA: Project CARS is Free to Xbox Live Gold Members

Project CARS, the flawed but fun racing simulator is one of this months free titles on Xbox Live for Gold members. Like Forza Horizon before it it’s nice to see Microsoft providing some free games for us gear heads in the audience, especially those of us that like to challenge ourselves with a bit of a more hardcore sim than the Forza games.

With a lovely blue and gold livery celebrating their 25 years in the sport it’s one hell of a good looking race car. Features to look out for on these new cars are the new style front and rear wings, the lovely shark-fin, and of course those massive wheels and tires. Expect a full breakdown from me over in Formula Fun town once we see more cars break their cover.

Project #MokotoNB Update: Daily Driving and Delivery.

miata mokoto project

When I first bought Mokoto last year I didn’t actually know what kind of Miata I was buying for $2300. Was it going to explode? Was it going to be the cheapest NB in the world? Or had I just found another one of the many anonymous Miata’s that trundle along the roads of this great country. But after crossing over 250,000 miles, I figured the old girl was up for a challenge.
