    With AC's multiplayer release (hopefully) just a few weeks away, I thought it'd be good to get some more friends on my steam friends list who are just as passionate about Assetto Corsa, and Sim Racing in general, as I am. This would be highly useful for me for when Multiplayer is released, because it will make joining peoples lobbies much quicker and easier :) Or if you just want to have a bit of chin wag about pre/post race action, or about real Motorsport. It's all good stuff.

    My SteamID is: Tophercheese
    Also, don't forget to join the RaceDepartment group on steam if you haven't already!

    Feel free to send me a a friend request :)
    Hope to see you all on track very soon!

    Does anyone know if AC will have the steam groups showing in the leaderboards and stuff? Or is it just friends list? I'm a bit reluctant to post my steam name publicly for security reasons! One less thing for hackers to hax0rz! I did already add a couple of people from that AC forum thread who were showing as also in RaceDept...

    Ah screw it, I'll take a leaf out of Sebastian's book. If anyone from here wants another name on their list, feel free to add me... Steam.

    I'm 30+ age group from UK, and picked up AC this weekend after having thought about it for quite a while now. Glad I did, it's great... masses of potential for multiplayer :) So I'm new to it, and not very good/fast at racing, but I do try. I'm more of a general gaming fan and play all sorts of games. (Particularly like DayZ.)

    How many of you guys are using the RSR app? Easy to add friends there too to see how fast/slow one is ;)

    I actually installed RSR lastnight.. I like it. For slow people like me, it looks like it'll be a good way of pushing to get better :)

    The friends bit doesn't seem to do much on mine though. I hit refresh like the guide says and no one appears. Hmm. Have to look in to that.

    It did not show anything at first when I added a friend (said friends 0)but when I selected "friends" in the drop down menu on a specific track/car combo it displayed the times.
    I'll add you tonight on rsr and see if it displays anything.

    I think it might just be me being dense :/ I thought you could hit a button and it would import your AC steam friends automatically... I think you have to add them individually.

    Edit: Yep, I added you Jan, can see you on there fine now :)

    I'm surprised RaceDept doesn't have their own Driver Community on there!

    I added some of you guys.

    I'm 5 years old - as you can see on the avatar. I like to shoot and playing AC with my daddy.

    Just joking I'm the hairy guy on the right ... :)

    Feel free to add me as a friend.

    Wow! World record times with an x360 controller!! They should start fitting gamepads in real life racing cars as obviously these steering wheel things are totally outdated :rolleyes:
