    Saturday we will organize our first hillclimb event. A full evening of racing with two sessions of escalating fun! First session we will drive with the new old cars from the Retro Pack to get used to the track. Session two will be BRUTAL as we will roll out the F3000 and race the hill with massive power!!
    For this event we kindly ask all drivers that want to participate to login to teamspeak. As the races will be individual with staggered starts it would be great if we can all hook up on TS3. Click here for a detailed instruction how to get your teamspeak running.

    Ok take it away dudes and rock those sideburns!!

    Can we have a session on Sunday as well? I am sure a lot of us already made arrangements for this weekend races. I have a race starting at 18:00GMT and it's really a tough choice between the two, but I signed up for the other race a long time ago.

    In addition, I believe the hill climb lends itself to offline racing as well. We could race on our own time and post our times here and upload them to the simbin servers for verification (I think it's called "hot lap" or something like that - I am downloading the software and I can't check)

    In any event, that system would prevent cheating to an extent and would allow us to compete on our schedule.

    Just an idea and I'll do my best to attend.

    Oh I am sure we will see the return of the good old hotlap week back anytime soon with timing etc :) Then you can do hotlapping on a hillclimb server anytime you like :)

    I just did a run on my brand new installation and it's really a lot of fun. But I see the format is a bit different than I thought. I like it though.

    I actually did my second "race" with the H shifter, Right foot braking and no clutch. Is too bad that one cannot prevent folks from using paddles (and the auto clutch is a joke, you can still shift clutch less anyway). But if some folks want to race on boy scout honor with h Shifter and no clutch (meaning no LFB either) I think it would be a lot of fun. Just like in the old days :)

    By the way, my time was lousy, but with a bit of practice it will feel a lot more authentic.

    Thank you for a good event, just too few people. We ran the "Retro Max" cars the first round and the "Retro cool" cars the second round (instead of F3000). Yves and I were close the whole time, often only a few tenths separated us.
    Great cars and a great track.

    If someone wants to beat our times, they were about low 3:09's with the "max cars" and low 3:23's with the "cool cars", IIRC.
    Hope to more racers next time =)
