    Let the Mighty Mazda show its stuff on the Nurburbring GP


    Wait? What is this?

    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Assetto Corsa, keyboard, console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you on the online track (for the first time) and giving you a great experience and making you a better driver.

    Make sure to be on time for the extended practice session and have teamspeak installed and be with us for the full length of the event. This is the longest session of almost an hour to get familiar with the car and the track. That's right, you don't need to practice offline first. You can come by fully unprepared :)

    After practice we skip to qualification to decide the racing order and do a short fun race of only 30 minutes so everybody can return to their wives, girlfriends, mom in time.

    Who can join?
    All premium members using their REAL NAME in the forum, servers and teamspeak

    can sign up for this event and a maximum of two servers available for this event.

    I advise all drivers to have this App
    Version 0.6 Apr 3, 2016

    Click ME for direct link

    [​IMG]
    Installation
    Download the the zip file attached to this post. Extract/unzip the content to your assettocorsa directory, e.g. in Steam\SteamApps\common\assettocorsa
    The content will extract itself to app\python\helicorsa (for the app) and content\gui\icons (for the icons).
    You can overwrite older version without problem.

    Now start assetto corsa and enable the 'helicorsa' app in the settings/general:
    [​IMG]
    Then start a session. Once you sit in the cockpit, move the mouse to the right in order to show the app sidebar. Scroll down until you find this symbol
    [​IMG]
    and click it. You will notice a window will show up, drag it wherever you want to start out. You will notice it will vanish after 5 seconds (you can still drag it). If you have problems to find it, just hide and re-show the app via the sidebar.
    It will remain completly unvisible until you are moving, and there's a nearby car (also moving) - short: it will only be there if needed.

    Hint: If it doesn't vanish after you moved the window around, re-open it again. It won't do this next time you start the game.

    of your still unsure please see our instruction video or give me a shout.
