    Silhouette Series - Hungaroring.png
    Hot, humid, tight and twisting. Often described as Monaco without the walls, the Hungaroring located near Budapest in Hungary plays host to the RaceDepartment R3E Racing Club this week.

    Saturday 29th August offers club members 30 minutes probably slightly frustrating, rear wheel spinning tin top action!

    Apologies for the noob question, but what the hell is the Silhouette series?
    (And please talk to me like I'm not a petrol-head...'Cause I'm not. :D )

    @Lars Hansen - its that pesky little series of rear wheel drive, big turbo touring cars that come free in the game. Satisfying to drive but difficult to master... you'll recognise them as the bright yellow thing! See below:

    So.....
    High-powered cars, tight technical track, and a rookie driver....
    What could possibly go wrong? :D
    Yeah, I'm in (assuming I can learn to control these beasts)

    I'm going to have to give this one a miss after all.
    Turns out SCE has moved the Minis from Friday to Saturday this week.
    Sorry, guys.

    I must admit I enjoy these too.... very underrated and probably the only fictional content I actually enjoy in sim racing... surprisingly good and quite a challenge... excellent

  12. Hi @Paul Jeffrey, I'm sort of new to R3E and have been online before but not in an organised series. I'm not in anyway a newbie to racing online with a four years experience with GranTurismo 5 & 6, Grid 1, 2 and Autosport and F1 2010/2011/2012/2013/2014.

    I'd just like to ask how this works? Do you have some sort of club around which I can join to get more information? :)

    Cheers,

    Mike.

    Hi @Mike Bearpark , thanks for stopping by! :)
    I'll try and be as detailed as I can be, but feel free to ask if I haven’t covered something you want to know...

    We run 'club' races for R3E here on RaceDepartment 7 days a week, keeping to the same track all week and alternating the cars to add some variety. The races are mainly 30 minutes (except Wednesdays WTCC 14 which is x2 20 minute races, and Sunday is our multiclass endurance event). The idea with club races is to offer an environment of fun, clean, exciting races without the emphasis on laptimes and the pressure of racing in a league environment.
    You don't have to participate in a minimum number of events, the only think I ask is for you to try and sign up early to events you fancy (the more sign up the more it encourages others) and that you try and finish the race if you can...

    To race with Race Department you need Premium membership, this allows you to race on any sim offered on this site, not just R3E...
    Team Speak is not mandatory for R3E but is recommended, however its up to you :)

    We have a great bunch of guys here who race hard and clean, its been a fun few weeks and the grid numbers are increasing steadily, once the summer is over I would expect we will be seeing full 24 car grids in the near future... so best to get in early and build up experience :D

    Hope this answers your questions fella, I would recommend it here, since I started a few months ago I've not looked back, been an awesome experience...

    Hope we see you out with us soon... any questions just ask ;)

    Cheers,

    Paul

    Agree with @Paul Jeffrey and adding that here on RD races I have never seen anybody ramming or stupidly revenging that you overtook him, or just signing out few minutes before end of race cause he wouldn't make better position. Just try 1 month for test and you will see. For me it is experience worth trying — after 1month test I bought 1year sub (received nice discount also). I can recommend it clearly and with no doubts. :thumbsup:
    (please note that this is not an ad :D)
