sim racing for over three years and spend almost all my free time doing it. I've also done a decent amount of autocross racing
and have used the OMP Superturismo, OMP Corisca and Sparco 375, which are similar to the BMW rim. Sim racing has definitely
helped with autocross and autocross has helped with sim racing so I think the experience in both will be beneficial when testing these products. - MORE INFO IN APPLICATION POST. (LINK BELOW)

Voting for the CSW tester has now closed. Many congratulations to F19_CoNa who just pipped Panther in the dying minutes. Couldn't have been much closer!

Thanks for all the guys/gals who took the time to apply and everyone who voted. I'm certain F19 will do a great job.

Stay tuned for his exclusive review in the coming weeks!

It looks like poll isn't closed, so how do we know what votes are valid?

Sorry for the confusion peeps. Having one of those crazy days and didn't spot this till now.

Voting finished at midnight lastnight/this morning which was when the result was taken. I even waited a good few mins extra as it was so close. I reopened the thread briefly a few hours ago to let people add their comments but it seems when i did that the poll also reopened (which i didn't spot until now banghead ). Any votes cast since the closing time (midnight) will not count.

The final result was Panther 26, F19_CoNa 27

Damn the luck for Panther for I had already sent him a congrat pm. F19 congrats to you then and only ask if it's as good as a T500 for so far I love this wheel.

And a big oh poop I'm sorry to Darren as well for by now I'm sure he has had a few bad feelings of a knife in the heart smile

It's kinda like winning at Indy only to have the milk yanked out of you hand for your car did not pass tech. But rules are the rules and why we have them otherwise we would be back in the old Moonshiner days running what we brung.


Sorry Guys
Mr Wags

Congrats Conny looking forward to your eventual review.

This was a tough choice to vote, lots of well qualified candidates, too bad there was just one spot, hopefully more next time.

The embargo on the CSW has just been lifted! bananadance

The SimHQ review will be live later today with mine and Conny's thoughts on the new kit. We are now officially free to discuss anything about the CSW or CSPV2's so if you have any questions feel free to ask (although most things will be covered in the review).
