    Come on you new drivers and the not very good ones (like me). This is your opportunity to have a fun race with like minded people. No pressure. You can use aids if you want.
    Ideal for those of you who just want to see what it's like with being intimidated by really fast experienced guys. :thumbsup::)

  11. To turn off TC and ABS you press ctrl+T and ctrl+A. But you have to remember to do it every time you enter a new online session. Is there a way to turn it of 'for good'?
     
  12. Don't know exactly - try turning them off in the driving options before entering the server, see if that has any effect.
     
  13. Yes, you can set them in the driving options before entering the server but if the server is set up for factory TC & ABS then you have them turned on after you have joined the server :(.
     
  14. @Georg Siebert what would you generally suggest: factory settings for TC & ABS (like pro in the options) or to manually turn them off. I'm asking as there are different opinions on the forums.
     
  15. I am very new and this seems like a great race for me to get started in, but unfortunately I'll be working all of that day. I'll keep an eye out for future races of this nature, though!

    Thanks for hosting a race for us folks that might be a bit intimidated by the much faster crowd and cars!

    Single player race sessions don't support pit stops? So in short, you just pull into your box, and use our mouse to select things to be done, right? Can actions be planned in advance and not when you pull in?
    Is having a mic mandatory, I have team talk installed and set-up but don't have a headset with microphone?

    Regarding TS, it's advisable to have a mic, but it's not mandatory. As long as you get the info of what's happening on the track, your're ok.
    And as far as i know (haven't played the latest version yet), you cannot plan your pitstops in advance, you just drive into pits, find your spot and perform what's needed by clicking appropriate icons.

  19. I'm sorry I wont be able to make it, please sign me out.

    @Tommi Saari if you want to see how pit stops work, you can can join any multiplayer server which is currently in a race and drive a lap into the pits.

  20. booking? whats the benefit over freejoin? with the freejoin event yesterday i could just jump in towards the end of practice, 30 min quali, then race. this seems way too much of a time commitment having to be at the pc before end of booking. especially just for a single race, yesterday had the reverse grid too, so get a lot more racing for the same amount of time put in as this system would
