    You have to confirm the golden rules if you sign up for this event. The sign up format is:

    • Drivername: your name

    If the racing staff don't see this in your sign up request, you won't see your name in the sign up list!
    We have a fresh, new way of reporting and punishing incidents in the Racing Club, using an infractions system - read more here

    You are actively encouraged to use this system - we like to keep driving standards high - so if you feel you were wronged in any way during an event simply send the event organizer a private message detailing the incident including a youtube video. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.

    Man, I wanted to do one of the M3 events, but I've never been able to learn this track. I'll have to give it some practice to see if I can finally get it.
  6. Doing laps is the only way. After some good practice is just like any other track just abit longer. ;)
    Just search for familiar points to see where you are on track and maybe also have the map turned on. :)

    And the lap of Sander will also help. ;)

  7. Never done well here, always struggle to finish but sign me up maybe this time things could be different.

    Danny, go to the wiki link that Ries offered and print out the map of the course. Keep it with you and check it out whenever you can. You don't have to be driving to learn the track.

    Oh, and it's not the kind of track you learn in ten laps like most others. You knew that but I'd say most that "know" it have hundreds of laps there. I try to drive it 4-5 times a week!

    I won't miss this one:letsgoracing::bang::banana:
  10. I driven 100's and 100's of laps with simracing so like to think I know my way around but when I first went to the ring with my car few years ago I had to relearn it all. Sure you know all corners but you don't really know the width of the track, all specific bumps, where your brake points are and how your car handles there. Most important difference with the real thing...all different types of tarmac !!! That really is one of the most overlooked things by tourist drivers.
    And everytime I go there I keep the highest respect for the track as even with dozens of laps driven I am still learning !

    So just get started and if you finish or not and w/e place you end up you will get more experienced ! Just don't overdrive the car and yourself at start, build up graduelly.
