    Well, here's what happened to me.
    A delightful chap called Kevin Lanecki........


    Second time I've seen him do this (first being the Brands Hatch race).
    Not sure if you can black-list users in R3E, but if not......
    Next time he comes around, either he gets kicked immediately or I'm leaving.
    I'm simply not racing with this guy.

    @Lars Hansen With you there mate:thumbsup:,we were having a nice little battle until he wrecked you:thumbsdown:.It's not on mate,If we can't kick him if he appears again,we can always spend 10 minutes wrecking him,Should be as effective as a kick;).

    @Lars Hansen @Phil Davies We could have a word before the race starts and make sure he knows that it is not acceptable behavior and if all else we can aye put a password on the BU server.
    However since I'm normally the slowest I could take him out and it wouldn't impact the race.:whistling:
    That's bad I not going to heaven now, see what online racing does to a person.:O_o:

    I don't know how you guys feel,But,I'd rather have some good clean fun racing with a small grid including Lars,rather than have a full grid with a wrecker in our midst and no Lars.He's our mate:thumbsup:.

    Having to fend off the stock car racers isn't helping me learn to race competitively

    To be fair in comparison to many open servers we have had very few issues. Fingers crossed thst continues.

    Well, first of all, nobody is taking anybody out. :D
    Not that I don't appreciate the gesture, but upping the ante isn't going to cure the idiots, but it might give the server a bad name.
    And as Kenny stated, we have had comparatively few incidents.

    Having said that, I'm with Phil on this one.
    I'd rather have a smaller grid than open servers (not to mention that I prefer races with me in them as well :D ).
    It's not so much the wreckers, since they seem to be unavoidable. Even iRacing has them, meaning some lunatic is paying a membership fee to be able to wreck others, which is....
    Well, it's something at any rate. :p
    But I digress; the reason I'd prefer smaller grids isn't the wreckers, it's that I'd rather race against people I know. I can't speak for anyone else, but a large part of it for me is the banter, both here and in TS.
    If all I wanted was an online race, there are plenty of servers out there.
    On the other hand, 2-3 guys does not a race make, that's just a bunch of guys doing laps.

    So here's an idea:
    Until such time a we get the RD servers up and running, we do have the forums to judge attendance by. So what if we said that if we can get 5-6 RD members into a race, we password-protect the server.
    If not, we leave it open.
    How does that work for you guys?

    Good rational post Lars:thumbsup:,Too be honest that's the first time i've seen that kind of behaviour in a rre open server,And now he's virtually famous i'd be surprised if we see that particular idiot in the BU server again.
