  1. Hello chaps :)

    (Apologies for this thread appearing rather later than usual :angel:)

    This time out, we're going to give our beloved WTCC cars a bit of a break and focus our attention instead on the Formula BMW at the tight and twisty Varano circuit in Italy.

    These cars, as we have proven at events in the past, provide fantastic racing, and there is no better track to run them on in that regard.

    Note that in the past some people have had issues with Force Feedback in the FBMWs which has made them pull out of previous events; I urge those worried to sign-up anyway, as I have a fix :)

    Please note: We have updated the Racing Club Rules and Code of Conduct and we request all participants to read these Rules and observe them during the race. In particular, we request all drivers to follow the Rule 2, which requires drivers to wait if they hit another car, and allow the affected driver to regain position. We will be monitoring this closely for this event in an attempt to reduce the previously high number of hits occurring, especially during the opening laps.

    The Rules and Code can be found here:
