    Just a heads up, this race is taking place 1 hour later than usual due to the Australian Grand Prix.

    Yep I'm in. No chicane for me too :)
    Hopefully everyone gets the hang of the game and we start moving through some more car combos. Hopefully we can use the stock tracks too. Not too many mod tracks. Ive had my fill of Europe. Let's do south America!

    Sure, why not. :)
    One suggestion; can we dispense with the darkness?
    It looks cool and all, but it murders my framerates. Had to drop out of the second race because my FPS went into single digits.

    Yep, no worries at all mate, I suspect it was the reason behind many people's FPS problems.

    All just part of the learning experience I suppose :)

    Sign me up chris, with the time change here the race will start at a respectable 5am :). I'm likely to be up to watch the F1 race anyways!

    The EU raced at Taruma with the Metalmoro last week and some parts of the track weren't being lighted up with the headlights: http://www.racedepartment.com/threa...-with-metalmoro-at-night.118793/#post-2200810 Just wanted to pass that along if you didn't see.

    One other suggestion: Maybe a sticky on the club page with some helpful info for new drivers about the game rules?

    Stuff like:
    • Pit limiter rules
    • Don't pass the red light at the end of pit lane.
    • Red/Green flag is a stop/go penalty
    • If you get a drive through penalty and you mistakenly go to your pit stall, it will not erase the drive through penalty.
    • safety car and full yellow = no passing. Follow the car you were behind (but is hard to do now that labels aren't working) :/.
    • headlights on in dark or you may get penalty or DQ'd
    probably some more I'm not thinking of.

    I'm in, I have seen the grass around the track and it needs a good mowing.
