    Note 1: Skins that come with the Mods Only
    Note 2: Race 1 you will use the first car next to your name and for Race 2 the other car
    Note 3: We are using the SIMBIN lobby for this event. See here how to switch lobby
    Note 4 : We run a superpole qually, you get one chance only at a outlap and qually lap. Take it easy on your outlap and get you car in a good position to run you qually lap, leave enough room to allow for the unexpected from the car infront
    you don't get another go if you have to take avoiding action..
    Note 5: Racing Room must be given to all driversand this works both ways. Divebombing into and across a corner denies people the chance to make the corner correctly just as much as someone obliviously (or deliberately) cutting the nose off of another driver who has achieved the overlap fairly.
    The kerbs are not deemed as track, therefore 2 wheels must be within the white lines, on the tarmac, At All Times..

    Watch out for the spiders:whistling:
     
  12. I plugged the wheel, set up speakers and stuff and was about to join you Antonio but got a call for beers (so tempting...:p). And as alcohol and driving don't go together you will be alone avoiding spiders today...:p:D

    Might be able to make it for race 2.

    If i can race i'll just grab whichever car corresponds with the sign up list.
     
  19. My two cents for the event:
    At first I would like to congratulate you for the selection of track and cars. I only raced the default tracks and cars in GT Legends so every event is something new for me (which I really like :)). The track is very fun to drive and clean lines are more necessary than ever to keep a good momentum.

    As for the cars I found out that they need a very different approach when setting up (and driving) due to their different behavior. The Fulvia was severely understeering at all times but feel a lot more comfortable and score times about 1.5 secs faster than the Corolla. On the other hand the Toyota is more fun to drive and goes through the corners only by transferring weight and sliding all 4 tires. The elevation changes make it even more trickier. Fun but more difficult to make a 13 lap race with no mistakes, so no relaxation when driving it whatsoever...:p

    Slowly getting better!

    At first I wasn't sure whether to sign up for this race because i've only raced the corolla once before and really took a dislike to it, but after a bit of thought i decided to give it another go. Would you believe it, i got it pretty much tamed. :thumbsup: I'm pretty confident i can give you all a run for your money. So please sign me up and and i'll work on the Fulvia setup in the meantime.
