before showing the pics, I'd like to remember you we changed the way to decide the winner since this month. Just testing if it will work out, but I am sure it will, and it's a better solution, even if some of the laziest ones will stop voting because it will take some more time.

Here is what to do:

You have to select your fav FOUR pics and assign points. The point system is as follows:

fav pic: 5 pts
second pic: 3 pts
third: 2 pts
fourth: 1 pt

Please, your fav pic on top, 4th one at the bottom of the short list.

Also, if you want, please, explain your choices

And may the best win

5 pts. c0wb0y007, BMW E46 M3 GTR
- again, stunning composition, perfectly sharp, and a nice racer too.

3 pts. RC45, Lotus Exige Mk II
- very nice color, and a beauty of a car from all angles! nice setting on the curbing. the land is a bit flat for my tastes, but it sure looks fun!

2 pts. salegosse, Ferrari 360 Modena
- I've found it hard to make the ass of the F360 look good, and you've done it... although, i really dont like the painted ground effects.

1 pts. Darkel, Ford GT40
- even so far away, its nice. the curb draws the attention to the lead car. too bad there is so much empy space

Ouch, this month is worst than last one: more pics, and even better quality.

After an early check I still had 10 pics to which I wanted to give points, cutting down to 4 wasn't an easy task:

5 pt - Maou - I adore this picture, as simple as that. More light would have ruined it!
3 pt - salegosse - beautifully executed, simple and clean!
2 pt - Davide - MC12 racer on the street is something rare, this evening pic has a great feeling in it
1 pt - dani_d_mas - A Lusso waiting to hit the track, pure sex

Congrats everybody! Basically every pic has the potential to get some points!
