    I think it's best to change to a tentative sign up. Will atleast try to make one of the tracks

    If people are intending to drive in this event, could you please post up in here - I need to have at least a sketchy idea of interest to know whether to run it or scrub it.

    Thanks
     
  8. I'm in if more people joins this event! (I hope)
     
  9. I'm interested as usual

    If the event is cancelled, I'd like to know by 12.00GMT Tuesday, so I don't drag myself out of bed for nothing. :)

    That seems fair enough, I'll make a decision by then :good:

    I did a quick practice/tryout last night and it promises to be a blast, so I really hope we get a few more show ups.
     
  12. Sign me up please Stuart.

    I hate to post this, but I may be in doubt. I'm still having lots of PC freezing problems with my gaming PC, so I just spent hours setting up my laptop with GTL and in my first test on-line tonight with Glenn, I couldn't hold a connection for one lousy lap. This is all starting to p**s me off no end.
    I'm planning on returning my PC to the shop to get the hardware tested while it's still under warranty.
    Geez. my old clunker of a PC never gave me any trouble, but the new super duper high speed one is nothing but unreliable trouble. Progress hey. :pissed-off:

    OK! I've reset up my gaming PC and will delay taking it to the shop till after this race (if the event goes ahead).
    I'll take the risk of possible freeze during the race. Fingers and toes are crossed.
    So, I'll be there.

    I will be there;
    Do I need something to know about GTL? This will be my first online GTL race.
    (besides installing the addon tracks :) )

    Yay wizard :good:

    No, apart from getting the tracks installed, this is a standard sprint evening Ramon - default skins, short prac, short quali, 10 laps.

    A Design Classic :D

    Great news Ramon. The only things to be aware of compared to rF or GTRE is that you only get 30 secs to get to the start grid when the server ticks over to race.
    Just in case you need a pitstop (for repairs only in a sprint night), here is a post covering it:

    I don't know if you need to unlock all the cars for on-line, but just in case an easy fix:

    Oh, one last thing, these Escorts can be demons to drive, but don't worry if you have a spin or two, you'll have lots of mates doing the same thing. :laugh2:
