    Given I'm generally 10 secs slower than the top laps , what sort of time should i be aiming at around BRNO?

    Cheers

    @Damian Millett , we're not going to ruin your fun by talking about laptimes! Just keep practicing and speed, consistency will come to you.

    I echo what Dennis says, don't worry about lap times and how well you'll do. These club races are all about having clean, fun races without the pressure to perform well. You'll soon gauge where you are and might just surprise yourself ;) Finishing the race is the greatest achievement :)

    Endurance races first is about finishing it and then about speed ;)

    Tony, we don't discuss lap times for the Club Races. They're intended to be fun events where everyone is welcome. Sometimes drivers see a laptime and figure they'll be out of contention and so never even bother to sign up or attend. When that happens no one signs up and only a few are left to possibly race. See ya there Tony!

    Damian, don't worry! I'm a regular backmaker with "lousy" qualification lap times but I still have a lot of fun, even trying not to be overlapped by top racers. :roflmao:

    I really want to do this race, if I get a license in time!

    I'm currently learning the track, does anyone have a good setup I can borrow?

    Also I understand this is a long race so do I'm guessing pit stops will be needed? How do I set these up?

    @hill . I hope you get your license and Welcome to the Club!
    I don't know that a good setup is going to be that important for the Minis, driving smoothly here is the key.

    I've attached my setup from last year, I'm sure that I'll be putting what I've learned about cars in it when I get to the track to drive it again. It's a start?

    @hill , In the Race 07 forum there is a great post on this, also a few words to a fellow driver from Tuesday's race.

    On your having applied for a license, have you PM'ed Tom Enders as he asked in you application thread?

    Hey guys, don't forget to make sure your mini skinpack is current, we are using version 2.3 now.

    Get it here MINI FRIDAY SKINPACK

    Also, remember if you have any of the skins included in this pack, already in the customs skins folder, please remove them before adding this skinpack folder. If you have 2 copies of the same file installed, other drivers won't be seeing your skin correctly in some cases.

    But we shall see :)

    I'll be having a catered event at the 40 minute point. Everyone is invited to the pit for some wine and cheeses or beer and pretzels, bring your own if you're looking for anything stronger. While everyone is enjoying themselves, I'll be stealing ignition keys from all the cars!
