    Track: Meadowdale 5.275 Km ( Download )
    Unpack the file and place the GameData folder of rfactor where the .exe sits

    Pit box allocation: (Download)
    As you may of see through the week the pit boxes were shared with this download this will sort out the problem back up you original as you will you need it to get on regular server.
    To install unpack and drop into you main rfactor/HistorX folder were the exe sits.
    Pitstop and penalty:
    During the course of the race you might receive a penalty, for those who are not familiar with rFactor you can either receive a drive through or stop and go penalty, in the case of a drive through penalty simply drive through the pit lane under the pit speed limit and resume racing once out of the pit lane. In the case of a stop and go penalty when you will enter the pit lane the pit menu will appear do not do anything simply stop in your pit box and when told drive out under the pit speed limit and resume racing once out of the pit lane.

    to make a pit stop as smooth as possible it is recommended to map the keys you want to use to navigate through the pitstop menu or look at the default keys that are set, it is also recommended to modify your PLR file the following way:

    [ Game Options ]
    Relative Fuel Strategy="1" // Show how much fuel to ADD, rather than how much TOTAL fuel to fill the tank up to
    Smart Pitcrew="0" // Pitcrew does things even if you mistakenly forgot to ask (one example is changing a damaged tire) Change from 1 to 0
    Automatic Pit Menu="4" // brings up pit menu automatically: 0=disabled, 1=upon pit ENTRY, change cockpit menu but do not bring up HUD, 2=pit ENTRY->cockpit & HUD, 3=pit REQUEST->cockpit menu only, 4=pit REQUEST->cockpit & HUD

  11. I'm free this Sunday, never driven the track....

    Hmm.... Sign me up please, looks like it could be fun :)

    Probably a Mercedes or GT350 unless I just drive for the sliding, if that's the case, here I come Zagato :D

    Had so much fun in the last race, would love to sign up, but it clashes with the F1 race so I'll have to pass :(
    We'll see what next week brings. GL HF all!

  13. Sorry guys, due to food being late (been out working almost the whole day but need to get some dinner in me before I do anything else) I might miss one or both of the races tonight :cry:
    I hope I make both or at least one of the races but if I'm not there, make sure to enjoy yourself, I really like the flow of the track myself :)

    Was a lot fun the first race! I was driven the Zagato. When I go to the pit in Lap 5 or 6 I was far behind the field. After the tyre change would done I was speeding just an bit and got an drive through I did the lap after also a small return throw the pit. I finished with 2nd from 4th.

    On the second race I drove an GT350 but only up to the 2nd lap then I failed badly and crashed the suspension and engine aswell. Then I watched the Race from @Srinath Sundareswaran and some others was a lot fun.

    Great fun last night. There were some problems with the pit stops though (me included).
    In R1, I completely missed the pit entry on my first attempt. I did another lap and still careered into the pit lane out of control. By the time I'd gathered it up I couldn't find my pit box - I'd missed it.:( Fortunately however, I'd somehow avoided a speeding drive through penalty. Unfortunately, it was L10 and I'd missed my pit stop window. I decided to keep going, change my tyres on L11 and retire just before the end of the race in the interest of fair play. However on my THIRD ATTEMPT at a pit stop, after changing my tyres, I got a speeding drive through penalty...... so I retired. :roflmao:

    R2 was much better for me. I came down off the banking early for my pit stop with @Allan Ramsbottom right behind me. Unbelievably, I still drove past my pit box and had to reverse back around Allan, handing him the place we'd been fighting for. This time Allan got a drive through. :poop:
    I ended up cruising around on my own for the last few laps, but elected not to wait coz I'm a massive woossie and couldn't turn down the chance of an easy win. :sneaky:
