    This will be our first of many Automobilista events for newcomers on Thursday night. Of course our seasoned AMS members are also more than welcome to join as long as you help out the newcomers as you always do :thumbsup:

    Time to install Teamspeak and join the fun online while you enjoy the banter. Ask as many questions about simracing as you like and don't be afraid as there are no stupid questions. The worst thing that can happen is that you'll become a better driver :) #TrainerThursday

    Wait? What is this?

    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Automobilista with the Britpack, keyboard, console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you safely out on the online track (for the first time) and giving you a great experience and making you a better driver with the help of seasoned veterans (kind of).

    Make sure to be on time for the practice session and have teamspeak installed and be with us for the full length of the event. During the practice and qualification you have a full hour to get familiar with the car and the track. That's right, you don't need to practice offline first. You can come by fully unprepared :)

    After practice we skip to qualification to decide the racing order and do a short fun race of only 30 minutes so everybody can return to their wives, girlfriends, mom in time.

    Who can join?

    Downloading AMS and setting up my Wheel and TS (it's still the MOMO lol ). If that is done and everything works....I am in. First race after so many years....that will be fun....or not. ;) ;)
    I think I don't have the Britpack..so..have to buy that.

    If you are going to play AMS often, I recommend to buy the whole season pass for all dlc:s :)

    You have a black Momo wheel?
    I had that for many years, then i did a comeback to sim racing and bought DFGT, and it blew my mind! .. a different world compared to old momo and only 270 degrees :geek:
    ..now i have TX and t3pa and its also a huge step up to the dfgt.

    These are possibly my favorite cars, not only they fun to drive, they are great for learning. (At any level). Nice choice! I hope this will encourage some people to get out and race that were otherwise nervous, or just newer.

    Sign me up. Also as a possible suggestion, would it be good to have a second or multiple teamspeak channels to allow some of the drivers to speak more freely without adding too much chatter to the main channel? I would be happy to watch others and do lead and follow laps and then discuss them (if anyone wanted to), but I am a touch shy at times and would feel more comfortable doing that with just a couple people on a separate teamspeak channel/sub channel. Just a thought.

    That's the goal. We have so many people sitting at the sideline being afraid while there is absolutely no reason to be.

    It's okay to be new, it's okay to make mistakes, it's okay to make even more mistakes. That's the only way one will learn how to become a better driver. Nobody has ever become a better driver by not participating in races ;)
