    I know this might seem a bit different from the norm, but i've been asked to move tuesday club races to monday on a trial basis, for now at least.
    This is to see if it will bring more drivers as tuesday is a busy day for other club racing and also, theres quite a bit of league meetings going on mid week, which people are concentrating on.

    Also, seeing as things are getting mixed up a bit, i though id change the format a little by having a "feature" race and a "sprint" race, with a small break inbetween stretch out and take a comfort break.
    Let me know what your thoughts are, and if theres anything you are wanting to see in future meets!
     
  3. monday is a good idea! count me in!
     
  4. come on guys ... fill up that grid!!!! this is GSC at it's best!!!

    I've been thinking, I don't know if it's possible to do a 2 race meeting with differing lengths. I'm going to check, but if it's not, a single 40 min race will be in the offering
     
  7. well 45 minutes is a very long time and a challenge to keep the beast on the track,
    personally I prefer the 2x30min formula.
    but the major problem is: how to fill up the grid!!! I don't think it is related to the race-lenght.
    we are only 2 for tonight with the best Sim in the best Mod on a suited track! and that worries me ... a lot!
    well I think we have to cancel this race ... as sad as it is ...........!!!

    Nice one Bram, itll be good to have you join us
     
  10. one BIG favor ... could we go for low ABS settings?! makes really sense for this car's!
    and do we stick with the 1x45min and 1x25min?

    Guys practice started 15 minutes ago and i am all alone in the server :)
     
  16. i'm just downloading the track again...
     
  17. Congrats to Chris and Anthony for their Race Win's!!!

    and I learned something: never change your setup in Qualy! But after I have seen Bram flying all over the place with impressive lap-times, I had to add more wings and from there on I made my setup unbalanced and less drivable then with less wings ; )
    anyway it was great! and thanks to all driver's showing up and supporting the Race-Club!

    here the short results of:
    - Race 1
    - Race 2

  18. Cheers Reto....although I'm not sure it was a win as I didn't have enough fuel to reach the finish line!

    The Formula Classic is (IMO) one of the greatest sim cars out there...it's just brilliant!

    A no finish in race 2? No fuel for 2/3 of the drivers? :D

    Thanks to all those who could turn up, it managed to be quite a night. Pulled out a win when I was so far off the pace.

    Second race was abysmal through. 4 laps in (I think), on the final corner, I hit the rumble strips and it line of sucked me off track into the wall, killing my car.
    All in all though, I had a very good night, and I'm really looking forward to tonight's rFactor race.

    Don't know how competitive ill be, but I've been practicing on 110% and been over a second quicker, so im a little hopeful
