    Not sure what you mean?
    I see you have looked at the skin pack download. Did you put the pit box allocation download in? It's an RFM file, so you will need to back up the original RFM before unpacking the downloaded one into you main game folder. :thumbsup:

    You are in... and yes, you are very welcome to drive my skin for me. :D
    Great to have you chaps aboard. :thumbsup:
    Glad you can make it buddy, see you on track. ;)

    Remember, to make a mixed grid, Sign ups with an odd number beside their name (1,3,5, etc.) please take the Gordini for race 1 and the Simca for race 2.
    Sign ups with even numbers (2,4,6, etc.) Please take the Simca for race 1.
    Cheers.

    I can see your real name in the race thread already. I think it's automatic. You just need to make sure you use your real name in game and on TeamSpeak. :thumbsup:

    Well what a super night of racing
    10 guys in the server... thank you all for turning up,
    I remember this combo form a while back and its a little gem, Well done Denis for bringing it back,:notworthy::notworthy:
    i do love these little cars they provide such great racing.
    Started off in the screamer, nearly blowing the engine a couple of times with a miss shifts. (trying to hard)
    but once i settled in it was fine, (i kept wanting to drop to 2nd gear in the hairpin. Big no no for me with my late breaking) but i kept plugging away. the default setup can be tricky in places the back end wants to dance at every corner. my tires where bright red by the end of the race and offered no real grip.. lmao
    race 2 was a swap to the more stable car.. a little bit of stiffening and i was good to go.
    keeping calm as Joe and T-rac3 pulled away to start with i got in my grove and slowly pulled back onto the rear bumper. Did not even realise how fast the pace was, ( fastest lap by 1thou over knut.. :roflmao::roflmao:)
    i got into 2nd plce and hung on Joes bumper, often loosing a bit by getting a bit carried way and then making the gap back up, But never really getting a good enough run to challenge for a corner so tucking back behind to try again later, the laps ticked by and i had a good go in the last few laps but Joe covered his line well, the only way by would of been a forceful pass and i don't do that with the racing this good why spoil it.
    in the last corner of the last lap i went for a bold run at the corner to get the run on the home straight it was working and i was catching but just touched the inside kurb to much and stated to spin. 1 had many seconds over 3rd place so plenty of time to turn the car around and trickle over the line.
    Well done Joe good race mate..

    well done the new guys i hope you had a blast.
    @picard
    @kavic10

    the engines in some cars can explode on you when racing, its happened to all of us and still does every now and again. Usually on miss shifts or going down gears.. it does come with practice and i hope you will return to race with us again.. :)

    some of us use a race hud GID
    If you install the mod on Windows 8 or later and want to use the GID Hud Overlay then it may throw up an error stating that dx3d9_40.dll is missing. If this is the case then you'll need 2 extra files called dx3d9_40.dll. Although both files are named identically they are different file sizes and reside in different locations. You can find the files HERE.

    just shout if we can help in any other things you may need, we are here to help :)

    roll on the Caterhams.
