    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 :)

    Wait? What is this?
    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Automobilista, 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 plenty of time 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 so everybody can return to their wives, girlfriends, mom in time.

    Who can join?
    All premium members can sign up for this event. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for the challenge!

    Something's come up :(
    We understand that things can come up that prevent you from racing. Please give as much notice as possible so that others can take your place. You must sign out no later than 1 hour before practice starts.

    The best thing I can say is to probably make sure you are braking in a straight line and try to reduce brake pressure a little to avoid locking up so much but someone will have better tips than me im sure. Just be sure to jump on teamspeak for the event and someone will be happy to help you on there.

    Yep! But I took the liberty to remove one of the two instances of Paul we had, I hope you don't mind…

    Your week is going well John? Not too tiring with the night shifts?...:whistling:

    Are there any eligibility requirements for this "rookie" race? I used to do a lot of club racing over in Race 07 and a little bit here, but I haven't been able to get around to racing very much recently.

    None at all. The rookie events are open to all. If you need any help just ask on teamspeak.
