    • Server will be up, close to or at 18:00 GMT.
    • Booking starts at 18:00 GMT.
    • Sign up window closes at 17:30 GMT sharp.
    • Sign out before 17:30 GMT, if you don't know for certain you can participate in the event or can't book in time, so your spot can go to somebody else.
    • Make a new post for a better overview, if you do need to sign out.
    • This event has no 'minimal number of participants' criteria to take place.

    • Standing Start for the race.
    • Penalties will be enabled during this event.
    • It is strongly encouraged to be present in teamspeak, as this serves a multitude of objectives: a place to be on the same page during the event and to pick up important information, if needed - to inform drivers they are about to be lapped during the race - and to simply converse with one another and to build a sense of community.
    • If you don't want to be disturbed during a qualifying lap, you may turn off your mic/headphones, albeit please remember to enable them again afterwards - especially before the race starts. You will have plenty of time to do so in the transition between the Qually and Race session.
    • To ensure a level playing field, set the ambient temperature to the default 26°C, enable fuel consumption, enable tyre wear and disable mechanical damage in the configuration windows - example.
    • Check & load up your Race-setup after Qualifying, if you have one and choose a suitable tyre type & fuel load for the race.
    • In order to limit the display of plane white car liveries during our races, please click here - rules are included.

    • This event has no 'minimal number of participants' criteria to take place.
    • If anything goes wrong with the server, please leave here a message immediately.
    • Our racing clubs are foremost meant to gain online experience, so please help other drivers out when they have questions about the event, car, track, setup or a particular combination. This is not a league race, it's not about who wins, it is meant to be fun.

  2. Tips and Tricks section
    (this is planned to be a reoccuring section below my events and is comprised of factual information and personal racing experience)
    • This track is quite narrow. It could take a while after the start until a single file of cars are formed. Be aware of your surroundings.
    • Also the curbs are rather slim - be vigilant during corner exit.
    • The last chicane is tricky - brake gently to keep the car stable and accelerate early afterwards.
    • A turn is defined by a 'Change in direction'.
    • Be patient during accelerating out of turns 1 and 7 to avoid oversteer and going off track.
    • You will loose a lot of time, if you are slow up the hill between Turns 3 and 4.
    • Turns 8 and 9 are meant to be taken flat out with GT3 cars.
    • Be sure to practice race starts with cold tyres to get a clean and fast getaway from the grid - this is also a safety issue to avoid spins and accidents right after the lights go out.
    • Click here for submitted setups for the BMW Z4 GT3. You may also share yours of the McLaren or the Lotus with a short description in the 'Assetto Corsa Setups' forum.
    • Pick at least the Medium compound to cover the race distance of 22 laps savely.
    • Be careful during overtaking and give your fellow drivers enough room to maneuver.
    • Good and (if done right) fruitful overtaking opportunites are Turns 1 and 7.
    • Make sure you are sufficiently far alongside the car you want to overtake before committing to a move. Additionally, be sure your fellow driver sees you and is aware/can sense/can predict where you are /where you will be in the next couple of seconds. This will massively reduce unnecessary contact and clumsy accidents.
    • The virtual rear mirror (press F11), the red triangles at the corners of your screen pointing at a close car and a regular look at your back (map a button) will help you with that.

  15. Sorry to do that, but I did change a bullet point in the Notes section to:

    • If you don't know if you can participate in the event or can't book in time, make sure to sign out before 17:30 GMT so your spot can go to somebody else.
    Sign-out time changed from 18:00 GMT.

    Reason: I need to know all names that are going to participate half an hour before booking starts (18:00 GMT) to have enough time to 1) configure the server and 2) send out the pm with the password.

    I don't like to change the Notes after the event is posted, however please keep in mind the new EU Racing Club staff has only been on the job since Wednesday.

  16. Please put me in I love this track!
     
  17. Sign me up please, totally new to this game but enjoyed the race with the Lotus today so lets move on.
    Tried some cars and kinda scared now for these monsters !
     
  18. Had a little practice on this track, really awesome, great job! Going to be tricky to pass on this one with no slipstream, Last chicane is definitely quite terrifying :)

    Also noticed that the US servers do a pace lap with GT3 events. Should we do one? Might help reduce turn 1 contacts, and the Macca is miles better off standing starts :p
