    Hi Everyone,
    My name is Ant (aka 2scoops). I'm just 50 and stumbled in to sim racing about a year ago and have been hooked ever since. Medically discharged from the RAF in 2007 after a brain tumour, can only really use my right leg so left foot breaking is out lol

    Project Cars and R3E is the software I'll be using, haven't had experience with SCE or Assetto Corsa. May see what iRacing is about but I just want to find the best option with good numbers and great, and above all fun racing.

    Welcome to RD mate. :)
    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 .

    Welcome to the forums here at RD and of course the delights of online racing. Please check out the links that Andrew has provided and jump into the club races, you'll find a friendly bunch who want to have fun and enjoy the racing. In the R3E club we have a mix of talents ranging from me at the back right up to some extremely fast gents at the front, so you're bound to come across someone at your own pace. Look forward to seeing you on the track.:)

    Hi Brian, that would be great, i'm waiting the arrival of the new PC so will be getting everything installed and up and running so will more than likely be after Christmas and New Year. This is the first PC i've had for about 20 years, so would the request be through Steam?

    Hi Brian, No not on Steam yet, waiting for the PC to arrive. Everything else is ready to go, typical it's the last thing to arrive. I've just moved over from Xbox One. When the PC gets here I will be opening a Steam account.

    hahahaha... good sir, I feel you are confused in the land of relative references.

    "good" is not the same as "better than the other rubbish on offer" :)

    That's like saying David Coulthard is good, when comparing him to Susie Wolff :roflmao:

    I don't know, if I was the 27th ranked driver in England I'd say I was a good driver.

    Fair point mate, I'll concede the point on this occasion.

    You win round 1 ! ;)
