    Note 1: You must drive a different Car in each race. And only use default liveries
    Note 2: We are using the SIMBIN lobby for this event. See here how to switch lobby
    Note 3: We run a super pole qually. This is 1 attempt only at a single flying lap ( 1x outlap from the pits and then your qually lap) if you mess up you dont get to start from the pits for a second chance. You get 10 min's to make your qually lap, so pick an appropriate gap in the traffic to go out and set a fast lap..

    It sounded like something went wrong with the mod-install last time and that some of the files are still wrong/misplaced. I think it would be best to reinstall GTL. You can also check out the GTL Install and setup Guide.

    You write a great setup guide, but think I'd get a little lost on the copying folders stuff :confused:
    I could delete and start over ?

    Ooooops my cut and paste... yes you must drive a different car in each race..:)

    Note 1: You must drive a different Car in each race. And only use default liveries.
    It is well known that the cortina and alpha are maybe the quickest in the class (RWD) with the jag being a bit slower than the rest..
    So pick a 2 cars and a shall we say one of them might not be the fastest but its time to test yourself car and see if you can keep up with the other guys.. Its more about the racing then winning.. Although winning is nice..:rolleyes:
    mix it up a bit and have some fun.. its about the racing with many different types of cars.. Some are quick on the straight's others quick through the corners.. If your in a yank tank youv'e got to hold your tight lines in the corners or the lighter nimble cars will get through..but then you might get it back on the straights...
    We usually have great fun in these events... i remember watching a Abarth and a jag battle it out lap after lap
    It is of course totally down to you how you want to race and the cars you choose:)

    Add me as well please, for race 1 at least, hope both.

    No clue if the track allows it yet, but will try the Falcon.

    Here's the layout for those of you debating what cars to test/use:
    empoli.jpg

    It's about 5km long - roughly the same length as Imola - so maybe that will help with your decisions...
