    *ATTENTION*
    There are 3 cars to choose from for this week. Please pick one car to drive for both of the races in this event. You will need to choose a different car for each subsequent event this week.

    Qualifying will take place over a 10 minute session. You will be allowed to start 4 laps. This will allow an out lap, and 2 timed laps. On your in lap, please find a safe place to pull off the track and press Esc on your keyboard. We advise drivers to use the first timed lap as a "Banker Lap". Drive within your limits and try to ensure that you complete the lap, so that you have a reasonable time "in the bank". Then, on your second and final timed lap, go for it. Try to set the best time you can, push as hard as you dare.

    Please use your rFactor linear track map (key #4 by default) to find a clear space on track to start your out lap. Avoid joining just in front, or just behind another car. Remember, as soon as you click the crash helmet icon to leave the garage, you will be deemed to have started a lap. If you have problems on your out lap, it will be possible to press Esc and try again, but remember, you will have used up one lap and will therefore only get one timed lap (no "Banker Lap").

    Lastly, this is a narrow, twisty circuit. Please use common sense when attempting to pass other cars. If you try to force a pass under braking, it will very likely end badly. Try to beat your opponent on exit speed, so that you pull alongside well before the next braking zone. Be considerate to other drivers at all times.

    If you are unsure of anything, or have any questions, please ask myself or Rupe Wilson via PM.
    Good luck and have fun.

    I cant remember the last time i raced Cadwell, but i do recall it was great fun if a little tight in places, and racing room given to each other making it a super event...
    It just over the river from me and ive watched motorbike racing there in the past..oh the memories of the mountain (hill)
    lets see if i can get a bit of air in the BMW. (maybe just bounce the back wheels..) :roflmao::roflmao:

    I remember a race in Mustangs round there in GTL. That was....cozy. :unsure: Not sure if you were there for that one, mate.

    More recently in GTL was Minis during a UK Track series, and in rF we used the Caterhams (want to say SuperSport 140s...basically the Academy but with the sticky track tyres)

    This looks good Denis,:)

    I take it we only get one attempt at this. If you damage your car you cant escape to the pits and come back out again.
