    Track Limits
    Article 6.1 of the 2016 RaceDepartment League Regulations states that all drivers must maintain at least two wheels within the white lines of the track at all times when under normal control of their car. A lift-off to give back time gained ensures a penalty won't be applied.

    Teamspeak will be Mandatory for the league, as the race director may use whisper messages to communicate everything needed. Make sure to properly set up TS for whispers, using the same settings as the screenshot below. Speakers must be activated at all times during qualifying and race.

    Provisional Driver List for Round 5 (Green means team is confirmed) :

    @Matheus Machado, @Craig Patteson, @Sunny Sky Speed, @Stelios, @Frank, @Jimlaad43, @Sean Butters, @Jose Vasconcelos, @Jonas Hillert or @Quentis Gillispie , @ARG1980, @speedyx56, @Herbie, @s73, @Shawn Jacobs

    Dear Managers, you don't need to confirm your drivers, this is mere optional, but it might help us for the spotter guide and getting data out beforehand. :)

    Matheus' note
    : Please ask your drivers to do at least a lap on the server before race day. We need the Steam GUIDs to asssign the skins.

    #24 for @Octavia and #56 for @speedyx56

    How are we supposed to enter the pitlane : cut through the line after turn 7 or get in before turn 7 ?

    Prac. server seems to need another update to join it.
    edit: The McL got a front toe fix in v1.10.2, which (the small setup 'bug') was introduced in v1.10 (I reported about it in the AC forum). So, currently you can join with any other car unless the now fixed McL.

    Stay inside the line, as long as you don't cut it it is fine.

    Interesting because the rules don't state that you have to keep inside the line when going into the pits, only when exiting the pits:

    "Upon exiting the pitlane drivers may not cross the chalk line that extends the pitwall"

    Should this be updated then? I agree with the rule but without it you can easily gain at least a second.

    I had this one. But in 2012 I switched to MOMO and in 2013 to a G27. They had to send me already 2 new ones cause I kept breaking them :D

    I used to drive with a joystick but on GPL. Which I dare say is a damn sight difficult on GPL, to this day people don't know how I was able to be somewhat competitive as a young lad on a joystick with my throttle and brake on the y axis and to be honest.. neither do I lol.

    I guess you just make use of what you've got just to go racing. That's what it's all about!
