    With limited space we are asking everyone to work together to allow others to take part. Here are a few things you can do to help us:
    • If you were in the last academy, please do not sign up for this one unless spots are available the day of the academy.
    • Make sure you have the DLC for this event.
    • If you sign up, please show up. If you can't make it, we expect you to sign out to make room for others. Failure to do so will make you ineligible for the next Academy.
    • Read the Club Rules and make sure you have your real name showing up in game and on teamspeak.
    • Password for the Academy server will be given out on teamspeak. Please be sure to be on time so we can go forward in a timely manner.
    • Have fun:)
    Our Format will be as follows:

    Introduction
    • Question and answer session regarding Teamspeak and Assetto Corsa Game Settings. Please no wheel settings questions as that would eat up a lot of time and there are plenty of tutorials on the internet for this.
    • Driving lines brief synopsis.
    • Do a few laps following Jeremy. Please no passing. That will happen later:)
    • Class goes out to drive in 5-10 second intervals. Q&A afterwards.
    • Setup basics. Go over the order in which we start dialing it in ie Tires first and why
    • Start building a setup
    • Class goes back out to try the new settings to see how it feels. Q&A afterwards.
    • Repeat setup and tweaking.
    • Class goes out for 10 minute race.
    • Final Q & A. Class dismissed.
    End of Session

    Since you were in both academy's last time, I need to leave you off the list for now. On the day of the academy, if we have room, you can sign up then. Thank you for understanding:thumbsup:
