    Update: I have to take my car into the garage for a tire repair. Appointment set for 2:00 to day my time. Hope to be back for race 1, if not, race 2 should be no problem. Only problem is I will lose all the early practice time I had planned before official practice.

    Nice track; tons of similar corners to distinguish which took me quite a while, but on the other hand its quite hard to really crash here as there's plenty of runoff everywhere.:)
    Despite the really strict damage settings - EDIT: low engine health - I finshed both races, which is miles better already than my last two attempts:D
    They probably were the most uneventful races I've had in a long time though, as I was all alone most of the time :(; In R1 due to just being slow, period. In R2 due to serving a SnG at the end of lap 1..

    I also learned that the safety car can actuallty move:confused:, that this game supports full-course yellows and closed pitlanes and stuff, and it'll give you a Stop and Go penalty if you wander off track too far:unsure:. While very unintentional, it was actually rather funny to see.

    Bottom line, it was quite a fun night. Hopefully next time I'll get to see a little more action..
    THX Denis; THX all for racing.:thumbsup:

    Flag rules changed to Black only (I think that's right?).
    Warm up change to 3 minutes.
    Damage was set to 50% and the time option to x5. I think they're both correct, so no idea why Roland and maybe Jack were getting low engine health on the starting grid?

    I might be an exception but really enjoyed driving around this track. The Capri felt great and I was cruising home for a second place finish when my engine caught fire ...to my surprise...still 82 % health left. BMW CLS in race 2 felt pretty good but a little more under-steer than I would like. I think I was the cause for my engine damage in race 2 ...loaded incorrect setup after the quick restart. I think I will enjoy returning for Sunday's race and may be here Thursday because of a possible sailboat race cancellation due to a storm off our coast.

    Thanks Denis for the event..cheers to all drivers.

    Time X5 means that if we start 2.00 pm and race 60 minutes, then in game the time have moved too 7.00 pm, that means it will probably be close to dark. the downside of using this is, those with old less powerful pc---will get performance drop-- because of weather changing-- now comes the other influence if the Host server game have MEC. FAILURES set to time scaled ( look in settings and RULES ) then the engines have been running for 5 hours, and that could be the little engine killer, when I set something like this up I have time scale at NONE or NORMAL and MEC. FAILURES at NORMAL. if hosting a 12 hour race ( real hours ) I would set Failures at Time scaled and TIME at NORMAL.
