    We're off to Germany this week, kicking off with the Aquila CR1!

    Wait! What is this?

    This is an event in RaceDepartment's "friendly series", specifically designed for those new to racing online. All you need is a copy of RaceRoom Racing Experience and the content being used. Keyboards, gamepads, steering wheels, all are welcome! Our focus here is to get you out on track so that you can experience the fun and excitement of our hobby.

    Please be sure to be on time for the practice session, and to have TeamSpeak installed so that you can interact with us. Ask all the questions you like as there will be staff and experienced racers on hand to answer them for you. Always remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question! You'll have a full hour of practice and qualification so there's no need for any preparation beforehand. Just turn up and you're good to go!

    Who can join?
    All premium members can sign up for this event. While the focus is on those new to sim racing, we of course need experienced racers as well to help answer questions, give tips and advice, and generally help the rookies get involved.

    @Gopher04, how about these things buddy? Only 15 minute races, so somewhat easier than 40 minutes in a GT3!

    An important note regarding attendance for everyone signing up for R3E events:

    1) The R3E club is routinely getting full grids and ending up with reserve lists. To that end, we will be cracking down on club rule number 2:
    People that keep failing to show up without giving the one hour's notice will be getting warnings, and further occurrences will potentially end up in race ban penalties. Also, I will be monitoring people that DNF and persistent offenders will be warned and then penalised.

    2) Club attendance and race finishes will be considered if you sign up for the RDGTC! In other words, if you gain a reputation for not showing up to events or quitting before the end of a race, your application will be rejected. You have been warned.

    Cheers guys. :thumbsup:

    Mr Kenny as I'm still leading the leaderboard I would like you to accept, my car setup. As I'm getting on in years practicing for few hours for a race, to get a setup. Really takes its toll on my not so fit body any more. It might be not to your style but it is quite fast and somewhat stable. And I'm sure it could be easily tweet to your liking.
    Just give me a nod or wink and I will pm it to you.
    That's if I can figure out how.

    Cheers Calv that would be nice. You can just click the upload button on the thread if that's easier for you.
