    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.

    Ok guys, since nobody bothers reading what me and Kenny write up above, I just want to point out a few things. :p

    This event (and any others marked as such in the title) is part of RD's "Friendly" series. For those that don't know, it is just a new name for the rookie races that started a few months ago. As the OP says, they are specifically meant for those with little or no experience in online racing, to get them started in a relaxed, friendly environment with no pressure. That said, there are no restrictions on who can sign up... we need experienced racers too for the new guys to learn from!

    However, a few things need to be kept in mind. First of all, the environment. As I said above... relaxed, friendly, no pressure. That's what these races need to be like, so outright competition must take a back seat. Second, those with more experience need to be understanding and tolerant. There will be nervous, inexperienced drivers on the grid, and there will be more accidents than normal, so please be patient.

    Finally, these races are meant to educate, not scare people off. If you see someone doing something wrong, don't start ranting at them. Instead try to help them out by informing them of their mistake calmly. If you can't do that immediately, then please wait until after the event and either use a PM or contact a member of staff. Don't start arguing in TeamSpeak because there's nothing more off-putting to new community members than a bunch of guys shouting at each other.

    If we all keep these things in mind then we can help get new members up to speed (har har) quickly and easily, improve the club racing for all involved, and increase our numbers to guarantee full grids every time.

    Thanks guys. :thumbsup:

    Meh, next week I guess. I was looking forward to testing this car out in a club race, but I'm not desperate enough to race on this abomination of a track. :roflmao:

    Let it never be said that Christian can be bribed or bought.
    But he can be rented at reasonable hourly rates. :D
