    Time to install Teamspeak and take part in a great club race while you enjoy the banter. Ask as many questions about simracing as you like and don't be afraid as there are no stupid questions. The worst thing that can happen is that you'll become a better driver :)

    Wait? What is this?
    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Automobilista, keyboard, console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you safely out on the online track, giving you a great experience and making you a better driver with the help of seasoned veterans (kind of).

    Who can join?
    All premium members can sign up for this event. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for the challenge!

    That will be great to have you on track, Jim! :thumbsup: Count me in please. I have not driven this car in a while, and they are really fun, especially online! It should be good on this track.

    Definitely agree @alexSchmurtz . Plus the push to pass adds an extra tactical dimension. With it being 2x25 minute races we should've able to use them almost every lap!

    Quick suggestion to those that wish to practice. I'll get the server up soon but when not use the time trial mode to practice and also contribute towards your AMS virtual rank.

    I thought about the push to pass, but not that we could use it so often, great! But were is the strategy then? :D

    The strategy is which lap do you use it on. It has a delay of 100seconds (I think) so using it means you need to overtake and pull out a lead or you will probably loose the place you gained on the next lap!

    I've done a few short races with push to pass cars and it still involved a little strategy :)

    I have added you Patrick, thanks for joining! You will certainly learn: it is a bigger car than the trainer and the Mini, but it was the second division of the brazilian stock cars, so it is a bit underpowered and easier to handle than the stock cars V8. It just doesn't like the curbs if I remember well...:rolleyes:

    Don't worry there will be plenty of help to hand @slingshot64. I'm more than happy to give you setups and guide you round the track. The Push to Pass feature on these cars (or is that trucks) also really adds to the excitement and increased overtaking opportunities.

    I'll be online for this one so just come on TeamSpeak and the rest will be just good fun!
