    I'm really struggling with things at the mo, I'm rammed with work and my house renovation has begun, which means I'm not living here right now, only working here during the day, the place is a filthy building site:( on top of that I'm away for three days this weekend and I've got a client asking me if I can work in their office in Newmarket for 3 days next week:unsure:, I'm in danger of loosing the plot at some point

    At the moment I can't see how I'm going to be ready and prepared for next weeks event, I've not done a single lap yet, it may be just one thing too much for me

    I'll let you know on Tues

  4. Always miss someone when they can not attend a race. It's cool to see them again when they can. :thumbsup:

    Customized car skins are not mandatory but are always welcome :)
    Liveries can be changed any time during the season.
    See the Skin thread for further information on how to create skins.
    Standings and Points
    The current standings of the Drivers Championship can be found here once the season has started.
    A detailed point system will be calculated once the number of drivers for the coming season can be estimated
    Presto GP does not make any use of a penalty system, each driver is expected to behave responsibly at all time.
    Incidents are analized after each race involving all drivers in order to get a learning effect for everyone.
    Should a driver not stick to the Codex, he will either receive a warning, or, in serious or repeated cases,
    be banned from the league.
    Each session of a Grand Prix is run with customized weather created by our weather guru Daniel Hansson.
    Daniel will post 2 weather forecasts for every Grand Prix.
    The first forecast will be posted 1 week and the second 1 day before the race.
    Drivers can use this information to decide wether they want to gamble and only practise for a dry race
    or play it safe and practise for both dry and wet conditions.
    There are no regulations on who often a compound has to be used.
    Dry Tires
    There are three available compounds for dry conditions,
    Soft, Medium and Hard Tires.
    Notice that with the current league format Hard Tires have a disadvantage over the other two compounds, so it's recommended to always use Soft and Medium Tires in normal dry conditions.

    Intermediate Tires
    Inters are recommended between a track wetness of 75% (mid Light-Rain Conditions) and 85% (starting Heavy-Rain Conditions).
    Heavy Wet Tires
    Heavy Wets are recommended from a track wetness of 85% on.
    Presto GP relies on and has always consisted of consistent drivers.
    Before you sign up make sure that you are available for most of the racing dates.
    Should you be unable to make it for one of the races please give notice in the forum as soon as possible.
    Sign-ups are possible at any time between as well as during seasons.
    See the Sign up Thread for further information

  11. I am not likely going to be able to drive tomorrow :( I developed a stye on the inside of my right eye over the weekend. It is quite uncomfortable, but the biggest issue is that the vision in my right eye is impaired and it tears up constantly. I'll give it a try in the morning, but right now it doesn't look good. Sorry..... On the bright side, my new load cell arrived and I have brakes again :D

  13. Damn, really feel bad to see so many absences and having to do it myself.. Haven't been able to practice and looks like i don't get a chance to do so. I did do some laps a week ago but am i safe? Not really. Pace? Not too far but this time i might have to skip it. Should've practiced when i had time.

    unfortunate to see so many guys having to miss, the grid will be bare tonight.

    hope you all manage to make the next race :)
  15. If my counting is correct, Jim (most likely), Nicolas, Jonas, Bob Lu. and Kennett are not attending, and that should leave us with 15 drivers. That is a low number, but hopefully we can make it a great race anyway :)

  16. Yes, i'm confirming by absence. In top of not really practicing, i have a nice little blister (1x2cm) on my right hand, in the root of the thumb, just where the main grip and pressure on the wheel is formed.. Tried a lap on Nords earlier and that confirmed that i'm not even fit to drive. Tha's really sad, i started to like Bahrain as a track.
