    Voted for A1 Ring and sign me up if this combo will gather the largest number of votes

    Im not sure about new opportunity to vote on the tracks. Is only a few days to prepare and check the setup of car and whats tires act - seems to me that this not enough

    Good point. Some people may want to train in weekends. But voting for track in my opinion is great idea, but maybe it would be possible to start pool a lot earlier (even before wednesday race). So by friday/saturday everything would be decided.

    I'll try to put up events on Wednesdays, and put up a poll that will close on Saturday morning.

    Anyway, please note that DST starts tonight, so the start time has been moved. For the majority of people, this won't make any difference, because we all pretty much change at the same time, but just in case.

    Thank you for your effort!
    I just wanted to make point that with 2/3 days to prepare you are dependent on having some free time. If something jumps at the start of the week you won't have time to learn track.
    Downside is that it gives you Senad more work to do when preparing next event.

    Sign me up for this! I hope for Aviano GP but will attend no matter which track it is. Can't vote from my phone but I'll vote once I'm home from work.

    No track map in NetKar Pro? Need to learn the track the hard way :p
    If I'm lucky I'll manage to stay on track on Wednesday :p

    Heya Daniel, hope you can make it.

    Planned running the Abarth for next week though, but we might switch to FTarget if you can make it :D

    Hmmph I was training on Silverstone and now A1 has as many votes, you can count on me crashing out first lap unless some more people vote for Aviano (as that's the only track I've actually spent some time on :p)

    Silverstone has more votes, counting just the people who have signed up.

    It is every racer's duty to lap Silverstone for hours and hours. I love just about every version of it: from the classic GPL version which is as fast and furious as Monza, to the 80s version with all the changes, to the modern version. A classic. A1 however, is a shadow of the Osterriechring.

    Maybe so, but we will use a modern car so i didn't see any sensible reason to not vote for this track. Vintage fits more for super fast Osterriechring any way

    I have changed the KS2's dash lights to show the info in different colours. It allows a quick glance to see the laptime, gear, speed etc, more clearly than the all red readout.
    You can alter the colours in the testdash file to get a range of colours; these are the ones I got after a bit of experimenting.

    As I can't upload a .rar file here, I'll post the relevant bits in here if you want to copy paste into your testDash.NKD file
    Back up your original testDash file before installing.
    It is found here: your drive/nkpro13/cars/formulaKS2/nkdk/testDash.NKD

    That's pretty cool. Might split that into a new topic later.

    I want to get some green in there too. It is the 256 colour range that determines it, as above you can see the 3 info bits I changed, RPM, Speed and Lastlap.
