    NOTES:
    1. For shorter than one hour, no pit stop is required.

    2. Due to loss of force feedback on some wheels, starts will be rolling, but the first lap speed is 50mph maximum so drivers may reset their wheels, if necessary. We will then line up in the same order we started and the race will start (drivers may accelerate and pass) when the pole sitter crosses the start/finish line.

    3. All League and Race Department Rules apply, with the stewards able to issue penalties even though no protest was filed. Please record your races and make them available via Twitch or YouTube.

    4. There will be no breaks in between sessions, so be sure to take your break before qualifying if needed.

  5. Quick question on this... I setup an online session last night to get in some online practice and set the assists to 'Real' and it locked out the Traction Control, ABS and Stability Control options so that they stayed as 'No'. I thought you were all using these assists in these races :O_o:.
     
  6. So what is considered a decent time around this wonderful track and what are the problems to overcome?

  8. Cool. I am not too far off then. Managed to get into the 1:48's last night but was struggling with the left-front tyre overheating badly, especially around the final section.

    It's always said that Peter. Dont know why, but if you have Real assists selected in your Options and the Lobby is set to Force Real assists then whatever assists your car has in RL it will have in that lobby.

    Its saying that the assist are not forced on cause u can choose to force anyone assist on or off..so if u have ur settings on no assist and join a lobby which has traction forced to real then u can adjust traction and it will be on..instead of appearing with a lock...same settings with a lobby with assist set to real but not forced then u would see the lock on the traction.

    I'd enjoy being part of the race even though it's the end of the season.

  18. Thanks for the clarification. It's just worded poorly I think. One good thing is that when it is forced to 'No Assists' you can't force them on in your settings but you can do it the opposite way round ie if it is set to 'Real Assists' you can still run without them if you want to even if in the real world the cars would have them. Must admit that this track is the hardest so far to go with all assists off, I keep loosing the back end around that first left-hander :unsure:.
     
  19. Good to have you on board Nic. The numbers for this series have been gradually increasing so all looking good for the forthcoming new Historic and Tin Top series :thumbsup: Just keep checking here for news. Always like to see plenty of chat so just join in or start any conversation you like in the Paddock :) (http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/paddock-chat.105202/page-43)

  20. One of our other drivers (@Marksest112) usually has the #60 McLaren so just choose a different number and you're good to go :thumbsup:. I've put you in the sign-up at the top of the thread anyway.
