    *REMINDER*
    If the number next to your name in the sign up list is odd (1,3,5 etc.), please take the Lotus for Race 1 and Mercedes for Race 2. If the number next to your name is even (2,4,6 etc.), please take the Mercedes R1 and Lotus R2.

    This is a historic track and does not have a solid white (or yellow) line all the way around, to show track limits. Where you see a dashed black and white line or kerb, treat it as the track limit for that area. Keep at least 2 wheels inside that line or kerb.

    Please be aware when aproaching the bridge. Leave room for other drivers where necessary.

    Where there is no solid white line, or dashed white line or kerb, you may treat the grass as the track limit in that area. Do not cut across the grass when entering or exiting this part of the track.

    Thanks Knut, but let's hope I got this right. I did put some time into trying to find the best combos I possibly could for this weeks events. I felt that in recent weeks, the bar has been raised in our club with some really top notch combos from the team. So, I really wanted to keep the momentum going and do my bit to keep the club moving forward if I could.
    The addition of @Rupe Wilson as a staff member, means that the HistorX team has been strengthened and improved. I'm feeling very positive and hopeful for the future of our club. Fingers crossed, let's see what we (as a club) can do. :)

    Still having issues with my PC,
    I will do my best to get it fixed today, spent most of last night with a cpu at 45% + on idle, me thinks there is a conflict somewhere.
    or a booting issue.
    Single screen 1278 fps in fractor :roflmao: using both cards in sli max performance mode
    3 screens, less the 70fps and stuttering badly with everything on minimum...
    other gmaes the same
    temps all ok motherboard 27c, CPU 23c GFX cards dont go over 60c
    and getting a 99% cpu warning when firing up any game after 2 mins
    every time i fire it up the wheel pedals and shifter all messed up in the wrong order.


    just in case any one has any ideas.
    Win 10 x 64
    i5 2500k processor stock setting nothing overclocked.
    P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3 motherboard. (heard these can have issues in booting up)
    16 gig ram 1600mhz
    2 x titan 6gb cards in sli and also have tried single card.
    h80 water cooled cpu
    140mm extra fan in side case
    3x benQ 120 htx monitors

    And my problems Started again last night. But i think i found the issue. almost certain of it..
    my G9 logitech mouse.... 10 years of faithful service... the wires seem to be shorting out near its body.
    as i was trying to type in the chat box last night, my wheel went crazy again.. but i saw my mouse blinking at me.. (should not do that..) every time i moved it it blinked.. and problems started...

    unplugged it and after a restart with a spare mouse, it all settled down...
    Went to bed feeling happy..
    That would explain my AC fiasco, as i was using it in game to move the hud type in chat box etc..jst before going on track...The usb socket must of been having a eppy..lucky it did not blow up..

    but come to think of it my PC did blow up a few weeks ago....:roflmao::roflmao::roflmao:
    killing half of my old pc... motherboard, and hard drives,

    SO now the mouse is dead..
