@ craperskys


seriously though, let's stick to skylines only (and if somebody wants to post cityscape pics, he or she should create the appropriate thread for that).

This time I agree with you! Skyline shots are those taken of the skyline itself and no photos with parts of buidlings!

It's not a race, more of a demonstration of Formula 1 cars (with Coulthard and Alonso), Bugatti Veyrons, etc. No competition involved, just for entertainment. Even the Prime Minister drove a Ferrari on the track with the mayor onboard...
