    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.

    NOTE TO CLUB MEMBERS:
    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.

    @Justin Talent - Nice avatar. Grew up with Metallica as my favorite band. Have been revisiting the black album this week, still great.

  13. My humble sugestion, after a bit of testing: A nice morning of race in the old times Italy. ;)

    Time of the day: 10:00AM
    Track grip: Old ("We are in 60s right? :cool:)
    Track temperature: 18ºC

    I tried this and Im in love. :inlove:

    There are 2 types of tires. Vintage and Street. Feels better and faster with the streets. At least with me.
    Is not huge difference in the behaviour of the car, but lap times with the Vintages are like 3s slower.
    If we really want to simulate, Vintages would be the pick, but how Admins control that? :roflmao:

    I like it. We can't control track temp yet, but the rest sounds good to me. Lets go with that.
     
  15. If only you could restrict the tyres as well.....
     
    • Haha Haha x 1
  16. Im finding the car's setup makes a huge difference with this car. This is helpful for getting the feel of what each adjustment does in a setup.
