    The new M235i is back for some Silverstone action!

    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.

    The only difference with the other week races for me, is the title.
    All club races are friendly. ;)

    Can someone tell me what they believe the difference between a "friendly" tagged event and normal club race is, and how it affects their racing? In recent weeks the friendly events have become exactly like any other club race, to the point where the tag may be dropped altogether.
