    I will soooo be making a note in my diary for this one.

    These cars have saved AC for me, brilliant addition to the sim and great racing.

    Just need to check I can make it and then I'm well down for this one...

    Epic :D

    Mmm that may prove a challenge to be honest, but I've given up on the F1 watching so I've got a bit of credit left in the tank :D

  9. Oh wow...I wish I could join in on the fun, but I'm way too occupied on Sundays. I cover my local events here and we've got a few that will clash with the times. So sad :(

    This is a great thing! Sadly, however, because of the "must attend all" requirement, I can't do it. I'll be out of town on at least one of the dates.

    Couldn't agree more. Never really been an AC fan myself, but these MX5s are just so much fun. :D
    Too bad it's on Sundays, I'll be too busy with the R3E Club.

    I'm not a premium member . In order to join race series would I have to be a a premium member ? Also is this series fixed car setup or open ? If its a open setup do members share setups ?

    Our leagues are premium only, so it's basically a 10€ entry fee but you get all the other premium benefits. Setup is open and usually there will be some helpful people that share their setups. I usually end up sharing :p
