    Shouldnt need many mirrors, the server is high bandwidth, sitting in the UK’s largest data center, its only limit is itsown network card… it should take pretty much anything you can throw at it.

    For the download size of the demo (100+ MB) I would expect more than one level to try. I’ll likely buy this game anyways, since I’ve been waiting for it for so long ;) It would be nice to be able to get a better feeling for the game though. I haven’t quite mastered not detatching from the wall in Pro mode.

    My best time so far on the demo, 3 laps at pro level – 4:13:26.

    I’m having some graphical corruption using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-8774. I’ll install the latest driver tonight and see if that makes any difference.

    It’s a nice game and I can play it on my aging computer :)

    I installed the latest NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9631 legacy drivers and the graphical corruption has gone now.

    I managed to get my 3 lap pro level time down to 3:48:88 :p
