    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!

    Not a premium member yet but interested to race with our group of friendly drivers? Click here for more information and to find out how you can participate.

    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.

    I think this isn't strictly to rookies as I think I hardly qualify as one? :rolleyes:

    If possible, I'd like to join for what would be my first ever AMS race!

    You're right, it is not open to rookies only: I have added you to the list.
    In fact, we appreciate to have more experienced people as well, willing to share their knowledge; any input you'd be able to provide to help out others will be nice. This is why Teamspeak is mandatory for rookies event: we want everybody to be able to interact. In your case, if it is your first AMS race, it will probably be a relaxed start with the game! :)

    I'm in as well btw.

    Great! I hope I get a few tips regarding AMS too as I'm yet to launch the game for the first time despite buying it in Steam's Christmas sales :laugh:

    AMS is pretty close to rFactor 1 & 2 when it comes to online, you probably won't be lost. But we'll be there for any help of course. Not sure when @quicksilver384 or @Nobkins will set the server up, but they will post in this thread once it is available; that would be a good idea to connect then to see if everything is working on your side. :)
