PostSubject: So, Where's everyone from?   Wed 08 Sep 2010, 1:14 pm

I decided this section needs waking up so let's go.

The sim community is a diverse worldwide community and it's one of the things outside the sims themselves I've always loved about it, meeting people from all over the world.

Me? I'm Den, Dad of three wee daughters and live in Toronto, Canada, a city of 5 000 000, cold as all get out in winter (-30C and lower plus wind chill that goes right through you but almost never any snow!!) and hotter than the bowels of Hell in summer at 40C and higher with nasty humidity. I was born on the East Coast of Canada and hot weather is NOT something I enjoy.

Next.

I'm from Bristol, south west England.

Famous in history for pirates, slavery and cigarette manufacturers. So not a great legacy !

Despite all that it is a beautiful maritime city. I'm also 20 minutes drive from Castle Combe circuit which is a bonus!

I am 41 and my first child is on the way in January. I think I may have less free time to play & mod then Wink

I'm from the sunny Rio, Brasil, living in Ipanema near the beach! Biking every single day looking at those very nice girls. I'm just about 10,000 km's from the Nuerburgring Circuit.
In 62 very happy years of my life, and married with my third wife, I have only a 21 years old daughter, living in London for now. Cool

Hey, I like Ipanema, but I just knew it as a drink till now Laughing
I´m coming from a Village in the north of Bremen, Germany.
Perhaps someone knows Beck´s beer? It´s ´made there. (Just said that because gege46 mentioned beer Smile )
I´m 17 years old, become 18 in November.
No kids Laughing , but a small sister Rolling Eyes
I´m having GTL since many years, but I just heard about modding nearly one year ago.
I have build some (very low quality) skins and converted a few cars from GTR now (thanks to EvoFQ for the Tutorial btw) and hope that in some years I can make some mods on my own. But I think I´ll have to learn a bit more, and atm I have enough to learn for school... Rolling Eyes

Hello, I'm John and I am an addict. I live in South Australia, 7km from the beach but it is often too cold, and we have no surf.

I am originally from South Africa, and as a child used to go to Kyalami for the Grands Prix with my dad. In 1976 as a 10 year old I remember sitting in the stands by the pit entrance (for the marshal's families) and having a long chat with JYS who wandered over before the race. Made an impression in this childs mind that for always stays - a hero to me.

Hi, I'm Gordon 61yrs old from South Shields near Newcastle in the N.E. of England. I live just about 2 miles from the coast (North Sea).

Frank Williams (Williams F1) was born here and so was the first lifeboat. We also had the first electric powered lighthouse.

My nearest race track is Croft which is just over an hour away. Apart from driving Sims the only other racing I have doen was with 4wd R/C cars on a slippy wood floor, what a hoot!

Hmm... that place is called at Pitkämön notko, there you can get your moped go very, very fast. Well, we have motorstadion at here, Botniaring. It's quite nice track. And we have those Zetor tractor meetings and races at every summer.
