    OK - the new sign up code is there - just click the "Sign-in" button to...well...sign in to the event.

    I'm going to leave you all to guess what the "Sign-out" button does...

    As it's only a 15 car maximum, if the sign ups start filling quickly, I'll be asking you to sign out until you know for certain so that someone who is a definite doesn't find themselves missing out.

    William - as I mentioned earlier, if you are still only a maybe for Friday, please sign out.

    The thread is for 15 slots, and you may be keeping a definite from signing in.

    Sorry for the confusion, but when I said "I'll do it", it was implying that I was sure that I was gonna race...

    Ah - got you - stay signed in :good:



    In that case, I hope that people who have signed in actually do show up for this, otherwise I will not be happy, and it will affect their chances to drive in subsequent events of mine.

    Practice a bit... There's some tricky corners when you have to heel and toe with a H-Shifter but it should be alright ! :)

    Car feels nice, and if some wants a setup I can share it :p

    P.S. The last 2 corners are bumpy as hell !!!!

    Arghhhh !

    There's that rubbish downhill corner where my FPS goes from 60 to like 15 instantly... Well... I crashed there on the 1st lap -_-

    Hope I'll be more lucky in Race 2...

    EDIT: Seriously ? Stupid engine wouldn't start so I was standing still on the start, got ram (Can't say anything there) and then the car was undriveable and smashed the wall...

    Can I seriously be even more unlucky ?

    Sorry for the bump in race 2 Stu, I really didn't see you until I was on top of you.

    Let's never mention these cars ever ever ever again.

    Well, when I tried these out last night, I almost signed out, totally unconvinced.
    Glad I stuck with them though.
    Lotsa fun, even with steering at 2 o'clock in race 1, cheers Thomson. :)

    Loverly night.

    Heard about these the other week from Stu and decided to jump in tonight for a go.

    Quali went V. Well 2nd

    Race 1 I had good start but pulled 1st for the turn into the uphill right hander and spun. Came from the back of the field to finish second. Jeez.

    Race 2 another good start and was up to about 6th and managed to avoid the crashes. Next lap and took 1st. Had Ross behind me the whole of the race to the chequered flag keeping me honest. Really good, fun night.

    Cheers lads

    I was the one who bumped you at the start. I tried to get out around you but I didn't quite make it. Sorry. At the time it didn't seem to be very violent but did it ruin you car? If so, my apologies for messng up your race. We all know how that feels.

    As for the races, I love the cockpit view and the driving experience it gives. I was able to achieve better than my normal times on this track as compared to the other drivers. I took a pitstop in race 1 which turned into a nightmare. When trying to exit the car semed to bottom out and wouldn't move forward even with the pedal to the floor. Tim noticed that I was in there for 5 laps. Wow, got to figure that one out.

    All in all great fun, can't wait to drive the Bobsy again. Thanks to Stu for the events, wd to podium people, and cheers to to drivers.
