  • Andy B: Hi Wiz, I have tried to make a donation using my UK bank account but PayPal will not accept the card as I live in NZ and have a UK card? This is not your problem but is there a way I can just pay directly with a Visa card?

  • Wizzo: GPW will be down from approximately 13:30 tomorrow until the migration to the new server is complete. Once the site is "live" on the new server it could take another 24-48 hours to become accessible to all users.

  • Wizzo: I've made some changes to GPW. Try it now

  • Jericoke: For newcomers to GPWizard, make sure you check out the live chat during the race!  It's the best way to turn a dull race into a great time, and the cherry on top of a great race!  (I won't be able to attend Aussie though)

Count me in Cossie, those who can't shift does not know to drive at all. The best feeling I have while driving a car is always the shift from 2nd to 3rd, for me it feels divine  :D

I used to love 3rd to 2nd and then a heavy right foot.  ::)

I miss driving stick, but have to admit that the 6 speed automatic transmission in my Ford Escape is pretty sweet.

Always makes me think back to grade 9.  One classmate asked if he could drive another classmate's car.  He said he was a great driver, and pointed out he could "drive stick or standard".

Aside from a pickup truck in the mid 90's, I've only ever owned cars with stick.  But I have to admit I have recently bought a VW with Auto.  We have only one car, and my wife prefers the Auto, and I have to admit that after driving it for about a year now, I do also enjoy it. 

But if we find ourselves in a position to own a second car...let's say a pleasure or sports car, then it will certainly be a stick.  :good: :good:

Well I'm firmly in the gearstick brigade, I've just replaced my old manual gearbox Mazda Premacy with another second-hand car, a Mazda 5 with a manual gearbox. :yahoo: 

I'd have nothing other than a manual 'stick' gearbox.  :good:
