Hi from Prague

Discussion in 'Introduce Yourself' started by popojan, Dec 20, 2015.

  1. Dear friends,

    let me say hello from the Czech Republic.

    I came here for several reasons:
    - to get fresh news and opinions from the sim racing world
    - to find friends of similar skill to play Assetto Corsa with (I am about to buy that game)
    - maybe to get some ideas for a turn based racing game I am devoloping

    I have some sim racing experience, mostly with GPL, LFS, RBR and Logitech G25 wheel.
    I have never raced online, though.

    Cheers,
    Jan

    Welcome to RD Jan. :thumbsup:

    First of all, here at RaceDepartment, there are all kinds of club and league events being organised. If you're new, the club events might actually be the best place to start, as others tend to offer advice there and the whole atmosphere is more informal.

    Don't ever feel that speed and skill are required to join our events. We welcome all and find those that make the step early into online racing develop quickly. As long as your driving attitude is right and you can be safe around others that's all thats needed, the rest will come in time :) If there's anything you need to know be sure to post in the forums and most guys around will be happy to provide you with help and answers more informally on Teamspeak during events.

    We're looking to get rolling with some more development events too in the near future where some of the basics about the games, techniques etc are covered. You can keep an eye on the Premium Members forum (Paddock Club) for more info on that.

    Have a look into this thread :

    And for AC this one.

    Welcome to RD Jan!

    First of all as Andrew said, don't be afraid about your pace and online experience, the club events are just for that, earning experience with like minded players! Also, TS always provide amazing fun. And I'm sure you will always find someone of your pace in our events!
    If you need any help setting AC up, send me a PM and I will be glad to help;).
    We currently host AC events in the EU timezone on mondays, wednesdays, saturdays and sundays.

    Hope to see you on track soon:thumbsup:!

    Nice present! Did she do that so you stay out of the way and she can shop in the sales ;)
