    Rolling Start Rules:

    • First lap will be a controlled, single file pace lap.
    • The lead car controls the pace, and must stay between 80-150km/h (50-93 mph).
    • The lead car cannot accelerate to full race pace until his car is positioned between the final corner and the start/finish line. Once they're within in this designated zone, the lead car is free to accelerate to race pace at the point of his choosing.
    • There will be no overtaking during the pace lap, and no overtaking is allowed until your car has crossed the start/finish line.
    • If there are any queries regarding further clarification of this rule, please contact the event organizer.

    Let's fill up the grid!
    You can ask other drivers to race with you by using the tag function of the forum. Just type an @ directly followed by the user name and this person will receive a notification. Example @@RaceDepartment

    Our racing clubs are foremost meant to gain online experience so please help other drivers out when they have questions about the event, the car, the track, the setup or a combination. This is not a league race, it's not about who wins, it's for some fun, so please join us on TeamSpeak and build a little community spirit! The more fun we make it, the more inclined people will be to join in and make the grids bigger.

    Priority access
    In case of a large amount of sign-ups premium members are given priority access to enter this event.

    I would just like to remind everyone these club events are just for fun. No matter if you are posting record lap times, or if you are vastly off the pace, how fast or slow you are does not matter. As long as you are able to follow the rules, and be courteous towards other drivers, you have something to contribute as well as something to learn from others. Please don't be discouraged by how well you know the car or track. If you are someone who is normally competing for podiums, but you don't know the track, look at it as a test of your instincts and an opportunity for the slower members to place higher. I realise everyone wants to be competitive, but this results in lower sign ups as people tend to shy away from events they are not as fast in. So please, sign up for events you are slow in as well. This is all about the fun and the learning experience, leagues will come later for all the :alien:'s.

    Just saw that the race starts at 8pm PST. Won't be home till right around then. :(
  6. Can anyone recommend some setup adjustments for the BMW M3 GT2 on this track? I don't need specifics necessarily, just a good place to start perhaps to learn a thing or two - I assume top speed is important for Spa.
  7. SIgn me up for this please

    I suck at setups but what you are asking is the beauty of spa. It is a high speed track but you do want to find a balance of downforce.
