    Welcome to World Sprint Tour Week 4. The aim, as always, is to produce action packed, 25 minute races, where everybody is involved in a dust up with a close rival, irrespective of overall pace.

    After Nikeface's Barner-Wood Raceway (which turned out to be a pretty strong venue I thought), we stay in Fantasy Land, except nominally Brazil for the purposes of the Tour, and BonyRing Raceway. As is our ongoing WST methodology, it's a contrast to Barner-Wood - it swaps the former's relatively high tariff and unusually configured braking zones (downhill / off-camber / high entry speed / blind / sharp / some combination thereof) for a more "classic" track type. We're all more used to this sort of track, so we're erring towards the faster (!) end of the Sprint class and varying the vehicle types to try and keep it fresh. We're starting off with the first WST outing for the front engined, front drive Mini 970 (all of which will have a fresh lick of paint), following that up with the rear/rear Simca 1150 Corsa and finishing off with the front engine/rear drive Lotus Elite.

    Please do your best to join us on TeamSpeak and help us to build on the great community spirit we have at our club!

    All - there was a small (harmless) typo in one of the filenames - you probably wouldn't notice it in normal usage, but it can cause the game to take a bit longer to load than normal, so I've fixed it.

    Please download the new version, install to your rfactor root directory and allow to overwrite.

    The link above in Denis's thread will work, it will download the latest version of the pack (v1.04)

    Also, I have increased server upload & download speeds to maximum. I'm hoping that this may reduce requency of discos.

    Oops, sorry @Denis Betty I signed in without checking which car would be used.
    The Mini is the only HistorX car that I don't like to use.
    Please sign me out and sorry again.
    See you all on thursday.

    That was good fun. I think I was using the wrong gearing as Luca was much faster at certain points. He spun out while we were side by side and I understeered off in sympathy, so that was the main battle over halfway through the race. It was good fun chucking the mini through the final chicane though!

    Cheers to stu for the nifty skin!

    Until next time...

    I think you did not get a disco tonight @Luca Bernacchini?
    Not much lag/warping either.
    Looks quite hopefull that Ross has helped us to solve the problem?
    Could you say thank you to him from me please. :thumbsup:
