    im all for one more season with race07 and f3000, i didnt think for a minute id enjoy it as much as i did so lets go with it again now that we're all used to it again it should make for some cracking races :thumbsup:

    regards the calander, what about starting on the 14th of august with hungaroring? that would be the 10 tracks if you take into account the 3 that arent out for race07 which we'd need to replace.

    Hungaroring - 14th August
    Spa - 28th August
    Monza - 11th September
    Singapore - 25th September
    A1 Ring - 9th October
    Suzuka - 16th October
    Imola - 30th October
    Abu Dhabi - 14th November
    Watkins Glen - 28th November
    Interlagos - 4th December

    that would be my choice of calander with tracks everyone knew well and have been used before in presto.

  4. Korea is fine to race, it's been tested, i can double check if needed. Its not 100% accurate but it's close enough. I really do like that track.

    About India and USA, they might still appear as the races get closer.. But most of the good modders have left Race already so wouldn't count on those.. If someone finds them for another title, i can ask permission for conversion.

    Season 11... I have to get new gear.. Really wouldn't like to miss another season.

  6. History shows that most or all Europeans are finished with summer holiday end of august/start of september. Is this correct? Would season start e.g. 28th of August be too early for some?

    I follow your thought on Hungaroring David, getting one more track that fits the f1 calendar etc. But I am thinking 14th of August is too early to start considering "late" summer holidays many places in Europe.

  9. My dream has always been 100% attendance from all racers, so if we can find a calendar that suits all it would be perfect :)

    To elabourate on David's calendar:

    Spa - 28th August/4th of September
    Monza - 11th September
    Singapore - 25th September
    Hungaroring - 9th October
    Suzuka - 16th October
    Imola - 30th October
    Abu Dhabi - 14th November
    Watkins Glen - 28th November
    Interlagos - 4th December
    A1 Ring - 11th/18th December

    The first and last round have optional dates, the point being that personally i would be flexible to maximise attendance.

    I'm still with my old Logitech Momo. I know several have the g27, but it is quite expensive (but that you probably already know)

  11. I like this calendar, even thought they are almost all new tracks for me, but i experienced this in season 10 and i discover many great tracks.

    Thing is i will probably miss 1st and 2nd round, a lot depends on the wearther here. Hope to see you all sometimes on public servers in the off season!!!

  12. Take the Korea out and replace it with vote, one can't expect that everything works out smoothly when creating a new track. I'll rather let it go to a vote anyway when (and if) i manage to finish it in time. PS: There's always Cicada ;)

    I'm fine with the calendar at all. The exact dates for starting and finishing the season don't matter for me.

    But unfortunately I'm on a late holiday this year from 7th to 14th September, so I'll miss the event on the 11th. But I think it's a fair thing, because many other drivers most likely have 1 DNF per season due to technical and private stuff (I nearly never had in the past). So it's ok for me. ;)

    PS: I'm looking forward to the Watkins Glen event - should be great fun as always.

  16. Well if we start at 4th of September we can delay one week all next rounds and Reik is in at all.

    Talking without knowing if someone have other constraints with the calendar.

  17. Many of the rounds are timed to take place 3 days after the f1 race on the same track. I know many (including me) put value in that small detail. But I would rather do 2 races in 7 days with 100% attendance than 2 races in 14 days with 95% attendance.

    This brings us to another topic that does not belong in this thread, but in that :)

  18. It's really a small but important detail. Having the opportunity to watch our heroes perform and then maybe picking some tips for our race. It raises motivation a lot and you don't need to think about only one track at a time. Having say Istanbul on F1 weekend and Singapore at wednesday on PrestoGP... Doesn't have the same feeling..
