    You have to confirm the golden rules if you sign up for this event. The sign up format is:

    If the racing staff don't see this in your sign up request, you won't see your name in the sign up list!



    We have a fresh, new way of reporting and punishing racing incidents in the Racing Club, using an infractions system - read more here



    You are actively encouraged to use this system - we like to keep driving standards high - so if you feel you were wronged in any way during an event simply send the event organiser a private message detailing the incident including a youtube video. Do not post reports/accusations in the thread itself - negativity and anger gets us nowhere.

    No money, no team racing.

    I love racing, but I don't like the minis. Have tried some few races online (and offline) but the adrenaline never kicks in.
    WTCC, STCC is the "slowest" cars I mostly enjoy to drive. Have fun all thou!

    All I can say is that I'm glad I stayed out of the way so the fastest guys in RD could have a good race.
     
  15. Dennis your too kind. I did the same thing actually.

    Well I was glad to see we finally got this event off the ground! been posting it for the 3rd time now and at least my quick friends finally made an appearance....

    It was evident in practice that we all had yet to geta true GRIP on this track. Literally! Quali showed we all had picked up the pace but over driving would impart a HARSh penalty on the offender.

    R1: I get a good jump on Jesper and enter T1 in P3 behind Keith and Dariusz. We run tight and cautious for the opening lap. LAp 2 I screw the pooch and give Jesper P3. I proceed to make mistakes and remain in P4 til the end.

    R2 I am P2 here and again get a good start. I am able to get a bit iof a lead on Dennis to T1 and go P1 for the first 3 laps. Keith pulls some miracle pass in the BLACK ICE corner and goes P2. I'll have to check the replay as it must have been something pretty sexy.

    I drive off the track on LAp 4 and Keith squeezes by me to go P1. Dariusz is now a suppository of sorts now and I try to hold him at bay. He's just too good today and I make a minor mistake to drop to P3. Now it is Jesper in the mirror. We have a nice run to T1 with me inside and him outside. I try to leave enough room for him at T1 but he drifts wide and loses some ground.

    Eventually the black ice corner gets me and I drop to P4.

    I finish P4.

    I was able to run the pace of the leaders but could not be consistent enough each lap. at one point, the 4 of us had our quickest laps within .15!

    So I liked this track and I hated this track! go figure a track you love to hate..............CADWELL?

    Thansk for racing guys had fun as always. So in the end it was Synaptic 3 vs DHR Simcraft..........things to come.:bomb::parrot:
