    For now it will be R07's default changeable weather. If there continues to be no rain at all during any races then I'll look into manipulating it on occasion. The main reason I haven't so far is because I want randomness, not planned weather. I don't want rain to be guaranteed.

    Can we stop worrying about lap times please? The problem when people start posting their times is that slower drivers are often put off, thinking that they cannot compete or will get in people's way. That obviously isn't true as we have people from all abilities racing here, but that's the impression it gives when the times posted are 2-3 seconds faster than they can manage.

    The Clubs are for casual, fun racing. Just hit the track and enjoy it. If you're desperate to discuss lap times then save it for TS or text chat on the server so that it doesn't put people off signing up. Thank you.

    And to be fair with changeable weather and the fact it's an 80 minute race makes it somewhat of a moot point.

    I'm worried about times because I play this game from two weeks and I have no freaking idea what it slow or fast. That's why I'm asking. If somebody want to give me a hint please PM me so others won't see their times. Thank you.

    The point I am making is that it doesn't matter. Knowing other people's lap times isn't suddenly going to make you any faster. You'll find out what people's lap times are during the event itself, and at least then you can watch them during practice and qualy and see how they are doing it. That's how you learn and improve.

    I totally agree with Ross here, I'm by far not the fastest on the events, but I have been at it for a couple of months now and if you keep a goal of just finishing you're lap times will slowly go down. By the end of Mini races I have shaved 10 seconds or so off my best times just because you get familiar with the car and the tracks.

    Instead of writing novells you could easy tell me one single lap time. I know that knowing other people's lap times won't make me faster but at least it will tell me where I lose and where do I have to improve. Watching people during practice sessions is not the best way to learn their driving. If I know that I'm 3 seconds slower than the mid pack I'll have to work hard but not to reach one lap speed. I need to work hard to find consistent lap times no matter if they are 3 seconds slower but I need to know because doing laps without knowing what are you competeting with is kind of boring.
