    • Sign-ups can be refused by the race director.
    • No cutting in any sessions.
    • If you hit another driver, wait and give back his position
    • No chatting during Qualify or Race. Even sorry isn't needed. Do it after the qualify or race session is completed and all drivers are off the track.
    • No abusive language during any sessions.
    • Listen to the race director at all times.
    • If you feel harmed by an accident caused by another driver you can use the incident report option. Send the Incident report to the race director through PM only.
    • If you sign up for this race we expect you to be there before the qualify starts. If you are not present on the server, the racing staff will confirm the reserves.
    • 5 minutes before the qualify starts the grid is closed!
    • Read and understand the RD rules! Click here

    You have to confirm the golden rules if you sign up for this event. The sign up format is:
    • Drivername: your name
    • I understand the Golden rules: YES
    If the racing staff does not 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 organiser 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.

  2. Escort V8's on this track are an absolute BLAST!!!!!!!!!

    Don't wimp out if you never drove them yet. The track is easy to learn and the cars are so much fun to drive here!!!!!!

    nothing like 165 MPH in a short wheelbased car with a 351 Windsor Ford under the hood!

    Eric, sorry I had leave so ubruptly without word during qualy, had a bit of an emergency here.

    My daughter was in a minor car accident, crazy thing is, she was taking a drivers license test at the time.

    Some fool ran up her behind, no one was hurt but shook her up heaps.

    My apologies again mate.
  16. Andrew no worries at all. Glad to hear your daughter is fine after the incident! IMagine that though. Getting rear ended during your drivers test! As if your not nervous enough already.....WOW!

    We'll catch you again in the future man no worries
  17. Race Report.

    Q: well I ran about as fast as I could go and fell short of the pole by .7 to Yves. Well done Yves great lap!

    R1: I get a good start and stay clean. I get past Rhys and set sail to battle with Yves. We exchange time lap after lap but slowly Yves starts to pull away. Every once on awhile he would give a little time back but no possiblilty to cath him. ONe big mistake around lap 6. Entering the Stadium section I missed my brake point and had to steer straight to avoid killing Yves! That was the end of the run for P1 for me.

    R2 I get a good start and entering T1 I have Rafael on my inside. he jumps the curb and shoots a bit left. I tap him inthe rear and think I spin him. I ease off the throttle to see where he is and he goes flying by me! nice save Rafael! I thught you were off badly in the grass! So I am last and working on geting back to Rafael and Peter. I pass Rafael and get in a battle with PEter. I am quicker than Peter but can;t find a good spot to pass him. Finally I gat along side him on the main straight and have inside position. I am a bit off the racing line and brake early to make the corner and hoepfully leave a little space for Peter if he decides to battle through the corner. Peter ends up off the track in the grass on exit. Sorry Peter I think your going to brake early and try a repass on the straight but risk is taken.

    I continue to run hard distancing Peter and Rafael is lurking bahind. I eventually finish in P2 again after Rhys exits the race and Yves has been of track from contact twice. Rafael passes me when I make a mistake unassisted and goes P1 for the win! Well Donr Rafael!

    HAd fun and really enjoyed these cars for a change. This track suited them nicely!

    thanks for racing guys and hope to see you soon!

    Don;t forget we have GT PRO at the same track TONIGHT! Sign up it will be fun!
