    is there something seriously wrong with the Aston? I mean I'm new to rF2, but it feels undriverable compared to the Z4 and others.

    Unfortunately there are known bugs with the Aston, so everyone tends to avoid it. We are hoping that the issues will be resolved soon.

    Aw man, I didn't realise... :( I'm sorry. I've selected Bathurst for the second time in quick succession because it's a popular track, and now that we've started to build our user-base again I thought it would be a good time to run this event with the hope that we would have a large grid. I guess a large proportion of drivers will now be missing. :redface: Oh well, I'll just have to try again in a month or two - as they say, third time lucky! :p

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Yes it is undriveable. I tried everything. Hope they get it sorted and I think they will. It sounds epic and nice cockpit. Something to look fwds to.

    Sorry I will be in Nords 24 Night quali otherwise here with bells on.
    If its like a 2 hour race on a weekend Ill be here in 3 cars!!!! Only kidding.
    Cheers and thanks for your work Daiman.

    BTW the Nords 24 mod reverted back to the pre ISI CPM update for the Nissan GTR. BUT it will be going back to the later car. The cars need different set ups. So take care if you are moving from one to another. Or just drive the BES GT3 Nissan (its the later car).

    Well... it's a popular track amongst the RD rF2 club! ;) This is what happened the first time we ran a GT3 Club race at Bathurst; it was absolutely epic! :D

    We even had a broadcast:

    Not you as well. Had the idea already before the brazilian one (might drive a Megane to annoy some GT3 drivers :whistling:). But I think we need to wait until February, but then @David O'Reilly can bring back the Aussie GT-R ;)

    HAHA! I too have been considering it for ages - since around the first club Bathurst GT3 Club event :geek: - but then the track was pulled. :( Now that ISI have release the 3rd-party addon I am once again in the planning stages. We'll see how it goes, but having three different rF2 communities running the same style of event within such a short period of time probably isn't a great idea, so I will look in to changing my plans.

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    So Guys in my view there is a simple solution.
    One community run the Bathurst 12 hours and the other Community can run the Bathurst 1000 (appr 6 hours).
    In the build up weeks we can have a couple of 2 hour events.
    I mean its winter in the Northern Hemisphere anyway.

    The only thing I need to figure out is BES 911* or Nissan GTR.

    *The Apex 911 is a bit fast but not nearly as nice.
