Love that image of racing China at night in real cars :) Sounds loads of fun.

Actually, guys, why are we playing computer games?? Let's just pool our money, buy a porsche and go find fabio's track.

Was single and run my own little company, now divorced with daughter .. switch to hybrid yaris  :P
i had also 320i cabrio at 22 yrs (used) while at college i did real estate .. sold in one time 2 flats + 2 renovations + mortgage, earned the equivalent of 1 yr salary , but was a long deal and showed for first time a 3D view of house on laptop 1992 !
Then switch to PC part import in 1996 after visiting computex in Taiwan, a long story but i bought carrera and other cars.
Later i did a lot of mistakes in RL
Forgot to say i learned to drive bike (50cc) at 7 yrs at 9 start racing in Motocross

Yeah, RL is a bugger... :)
I've never had the money for a porsche. But I'm a hippy, never got my driver's license, so I'd have to employ someone to drive it for me :lol:

I love racing games though. Go figure.

That must have been one tiny bike for a 7 year old!

Do other people/ countries get annoying spam calls. I get heaps of them on both mob/ cell phone and the land line here is Australia.
Most appear to come from India

Consistently .used to get em from India telling me my computer had a virus if i didn't talk with em my computer was gonna shut off ! Bro it got so bad I had to turn my home phone,s ringer off & now all my calls go to voicemail ! Except safe nest thats a company in las Vegas Nevada that come,s & picks up donation,s for needy families ! Like salvation army . My cell has the call block on . If it's an unknown number it blocks them from calling !  

Election time is the worst of all for 6 months up until election your phone,s will ring Multiple time,s in the evening, always when your cooking or about to sit down to eat dinner !  But they did pass a law in Nevada about spam/ Nuisance/ robo calls if you tell em not to call u ever again they are supposed to remove your number from their system ! " Supposed to "  but sometimes i like screwing with em 👍

Awesome pics Fabio. Am I allowed to say you look a lot older than 23 in the second one? :lol:
There have been a couple of other real life racers on this forum, it's somehow reassuring to know you like a8.
