    We're trying to stick closely with local times this Winter, so the event times shouldn't change much for most people unless they are in a country which doesn't use Summer Time. In other words, the 20:00 GMT start time is how it will be all Winter.

    Sign me up!!!

    @Yapci Las horas son las mismas, yo vivo en la península. En el horario de verano para mi los eventos empezaban a las 19:00GMT, así que le sumaba +2 horas y empezaba a las 21:00 (que en las islas es a las 20:00). Pero en el horario de invierno a las horas GMT no hay que sumarles +2 horas, hay que sumarles +1 hora. Por eso ahora los eventos son a las 20:00, yo le sumo +1 hora y es a las 21:00, exactamente igual que antes, y en las islas a las 20:00. No se si me he explicado bien hahaha.

    Translation: I'm explaining to Yapci how GMT, summertime and wintertime work.

    Which car is best for a complete noob?
    With Copa Fusca I can not make more then 3 laps on the track :( , that is why I do not raced it, but Hotcar Fusca and Copa Uno was fun to drive.

    That's a difficult one to answer.

    The Fusca/Beetle should be the quickest. In our last race they had a straight line speed advantage and Brands GP has some decent straights.

    With you struggling with the copa version it'd make sense you'd not enjoy this version BUT you seem to get on with the Hot car variant. The FL Class version we'll run tonight is nearer to the Hot car version (I think it's a bit more powerful, a bit heavier, as a rudimentary rear wing and more modern tyres).

    I like the Gols for ease of use, personally, but they're Front wheel drive, and that's not to every drivers taste.

    Remember, the series essentially runs as two classes; FL and B. FL means 'free power' when translated so these cars will be much faster. The Bs are slower and therefore presumably much more managable but at our last race I found them to be quite pedestrian due to the lack of power.

    I'd give them all a test drive in practice and go with whatever us the miost fun for you. You can switch at anytime during practice and they'll be a small window for you to change between Race 1 and 2 if you have a nightmare with your original pick :)

    Is the Beetle the only choice for RWD then?
