    Guys - sorry to be such a noob - but I made a cock-up on the track's legality (technically I wasn't to know but anyway).

    The venue has changed to Houston 98.

    Hi,
    This will be my first race on RD, or any driving sim for that matter. I've done plenty on SHIFT but I'm aware there's a big difference. I am hoping the racing is different to the crash and bang you get with games like SHIFT online. I do my very best to avoid crashing at all times.
    Cheers,
    Brian

    Sorry ... I should mention, I'm not a console racer ... I have my own 'setup' ... seat taken out of my car! cockpit made of wood, G27, monster computer ... just been dying to find somewhere to race with people that don't just plough in to each other the whole time.

    Hi Ryan,
    Got a question, how can I get the settings back to the ones that are legal in the race?
    I've dicked around with them and now I'm not sure if I'm practicing with the right ones. I have to admit I need practice or I'll be spending too much time apologising ... I keep over running the braking zone.
    Cheers
