Subject: Quick Note about Dummydrivers
I noticed it seemed unusually quick around Forza considering it doesn't have a configuration for the track ... and then saw that its default.xml file had a ton of old-style car setup. It'd probably be best if this was removed before the race ;)

    It looks to me in the dummydrivers code that the default.xml only gets loaded and used in any way if there isn't a track specific .xml file. The track specific ones all have the correct set of settings for this year.

    I quite like that dummydrivers is fast on forza... gives us a target to aspire to! :)

    Also I notice this driver is really good at overtaking while losing minimal time. Better than mouse at any rate.

      Thanks Tim. You saying such nice things about my bot makes my day. And good observation about my use of xml files ;)

        I concur with Tim, with its extra setup the robot is superb on Forza & quite difficult to beat in a race simulation due to its overtaking prowess.

        Afraid I have had very little time to prepare for this race, and I won't be around much during the week - am hoping USR is error-free as I may not be available to fix any mistakes.
