    Please just remember - this is not the complete list of what we will be using. This is just the content we haven't used before.

    Also, after the RDHGP season finishes, I'll be running a Road Racing series using a single vehicle (the Ferrari 250GTO) on some long, road tracks

    Updated with details of the 250GTO Road Racing series
     
  3. Bathurst, sweet. I retired there on lap 1 in my first RDHGP season with the Cortina, due to a mosquito :D

    Ferrari track choices overall look brilliant, looking forward to that. I just hope the car and I will get along.

    I've tested the Ferrari out on a few tracks - I couldn't induce any real nasties from it.

    It's pretty well balanced, got loads of gearings, a good strong engine but with a nice fat power band, not too peaky, the rear doesn't try to overtake the front when you step on the brakes or break loose when you stamp on the power.

    All - as we are now pushing our published schedule out between 2-3 weeks in advance, is that enough warning for you with regard specifically to tracks?

    Mods - yes, they're generally bigger and more complicated, so we'll always publish them quarterly, but I'm not sure it's warranted for tracks any more.

    If Bob & I decide to run any Club Series (like the upcoming Road Racing series in the 250GTO) we can use threads like this to give you time to prepare with both mod & tracks being mentioned, but for Club races is the track download notifications still wanted/warranted/desired?

    Tracks are released on a much higher frequency than mods, so I'd rather be able to react more quickly to use a new track than wait until the new quarter to put it in the list.

    Let me know.
     
  6. I can live with a day's notice with both mods and tracks, so I have no problems with this :good:

    A couple of days notice for tracks and a week for cars is plenty for me.

    Just to give people a heads up; the Ferrari GTO mod is rather hefty, so leave at least 2 days before the event to download it, as you can't get both parts in a 24 hour period. Really looking forward to the road racing series by the way, seems like a cracking idea with quality circuits.

    As I say, I'll stick with notifying the mods quarterly (they can often be quite big, and tie up peoples download limits), but we'll revert back to the track notifications on the events, especially now that we are running > 2weeks advance notice

    Looks like we'll be avoiding any special events in the Historic Club for the immediate future and sticking to the 2xsprint format that we know works.
