    This little track is way too much fun in a MINI! Lap times in the 1:11.000 range get you many trips around the circuit!

    Can someone explain to me how the variable weather works? Sorry for the noob question but I couldn't find it in the forums. Too many search results. From what I understand is that a weather file is loaded into the server. But how does it control the weather? Will it start raining in the middle of the race? How can I forcast? Last week at Mid America it was raining on radar but not on track. It's raining in Germany today but what are the chances of rain in the race? Does one thing have anything to do with the other? If not why the link? I'm not trying to be a pain in the ass, but should I be practicing in the rain or what? TIA

    basically if the forecast says 50% chance of showers, then in any given session you have a 50% chance of showers.

    when viewing the forecast, you always use the 8PM -11PM time frame for the hourly prediction.

    So in this particular event, you have a range of 85% chance of showers in the first half of the session and lowering to 45% int he last session.

    Allight guys to boost the numbers tonight I am making this a donation drive again. Each entry I will donate 1$ to rd. To support your beloved simracing site all you have to do is race.

    Also as with events passed, if you choose not to enter you are killing a baby seal..... So stop being so cruel and save the baby seals

    If you don't club a baby seal for me, I'll withdraw my entrance. I'm all about the dolphins. eeek eeek.
    I'm also impurviouse (I can't spell) to puppies and kittens, they're only good for stew.
    BTW: I pledge $3 for every person who finishes both races. Especialy if I have to sell my first born son. :)


    I'm trying to get teamspeak working, I'm connected but havn't been able to hear or chat. Not sure how it worx but i'm sick of bothering ppl with my chat.
