    Hi, is this going to be the regular slot for US mini racing now on a sunday night?

    This is a shame for me if so because during term time at uni i spend weekends at my Girlfriends, which means no racing : (

    Wednesday night was an awsome slot for me, just after i finish work, the perfect unwind!

    EDIT: PLEASE IGNORE THIS POST, I JUST READ THE US RACE SCHEDULE. Still a shame!

    Server is up!

    Cutting rules will be relaxed for the chicane at the end of the straight. you will need to make every attempt possible to keep 2 tires on the track surface. If you do slide through the chicane you are expected to slow down and give back any time you gained on the car behind you.

    be an honest fellow about the rule even if nobody is nearby please.........:D

    Being new to Simbin titles on-line I got thrown a curve tonight. Joined the server fine, practiced fine, qualy ok, but when I left the track after Q the "drive" option was greyed out for the warmup.
    I left the event, of course could not get back in but my ping was at 95...one of the best connecting servers in the lobby. So something got messed up on my end, but what exactly i don't know. I'm gonna ask Google about opening ports on router/firewall for Simbin titles.
    Hope everyone else had fun tonight.

    Fun races, usually do terrible on this track but was able to stay consistent in both races. Shame about the attendance lately, maybe some posts on the front page for events might help? Dunno.

    Scott, no need to open any ports unless you're going to run a server, not needed for play.

    I had a terrible qualifying lap, cut too many corners and it slowed me down.

    Slow in the races. Race one I started with only enough fuel for 12 laps so I had to adjust my pit menu on the fly to pick up more fuel with my tires. Race two went well except for a late downshift and slowing in the last corner on one lap that put me in the sand. That didn't matter as everyone was already 20 seconds ahead.

    Eric, I tried my best but I may have cut a few corners, check the replays, I'll accept any penalties forthcoming!

    I think you may have left when it was still in qualifying. If it was during the end of the session with little or no time left the drive option will be greyed out. Once it goes to warm up you're no longer able to join the server though.
