    The fantastic Copa Montana as chosen by the pole above will be featuring on the truly spectacular Spa Francorchamps circuit. The fast straights and flowing corners make this a great combination.

    I appreciate that Spa is far from a "medium" length track as selected in the pole but after testing I felt this was a superb combination and so consider yourselves overruled!

    A mid race full course yellow will be triggered at the 10 minute point. It will take approximately 5 mins for the yellow to turn green meaning each race will consist of two 10 minute duels! Even if you have an early off track moment the racing will get bunched up for a dash to the line!

    Practice: 19:00 GMT (30 minutes)
    Qualifying: 19:30 GMT (10 minutes)
    Warm-up: 19:40 GMT (1 minute)
    Race 1: Approx. 19:40 GMT (25 minutes - optional full course yellow at 10min - drivers to decide before race)
    Practice/Break: Approx. 20:15 GMT (3 minutes)
    Race 2: Approx. 20:20 GMT (25 minutes - optional full course yellow at 10min - drivers to decide before race)

    Note race 2 is a random grid order. Feel free to attend one or both races. If attending only race 2 then make sure you are on teamspeak so you can be told when the 2nd practice starts. You only have an approx 3 min window to join the server before it is advanced to race.

    @Steve Le Gallez @Vortlas @Markus Vahakuopus @Gasper Zupan @mancSLO @Joseph Wright @Anders Nilsson @Ingemar Petersson @Tim O'Glock @TeSL9 @Gasper Grebenc

    You guys all attended yesterdays event (big thank you - hope you enjoyed it!) so please vote in the poll to affect the choice of truck and car for next week. You don;t have to sign up but as you raced you know what might be a good choice for the next event.

    Can't promise to match your choices but I will try!

    Poll is only open for one day then I will select the track and truck combo.

    Enjoy!

    Sign me up, please. I enjoyed the two races yesterday, it was really fun. The mid race full course yellow in race 2 was a success in my opinion.

    Never drove the Copa Montana, so I'll wait for the announcement of the track and will do a couple of laps to see if I can keep it on the track. If I can, I'll sign up :)

    Similar to the stock v8 but a bit more drifty. Has the push to pass which is always handy @Gerdoner. A great car. Thinking of spa (download from RD library) but that is long track bot medium.

    Give it a go and let me know what you think.

    You like the combo then @Gerdoner Glad to have you in the race.

    @Joseph Wright @Steve Le Gallez @Markus Vahakuopus @Ingemar Petersson @TeSL9 @Gasper Grebenc @Christian Moreau @Nox @Gerdoner

    You guys have all signed up but I am changing the full course yellow. I have done some testing and even with extending the race to 25 mins (last week was 20 mins) if the full course yellow is triggered at the 10min point you only end up with about 8 mins left to race by the time the pace car goes in. It is a shame the pace cars only go round at 60Mph all the time.

    I said I was going to choose a medium to short course if we were to use full course yellow and I should have stuck with that principal.

    So..... As I am not able to attend (got to work) I am going to leave it up to all those who attend to decide on the night.

    @Steve Le Gallez will be in charge and has the full course yellow command at the ready. He'll (hopefully remember to) ask all those on the server via teamspeak and game chat if they want a full yellow at the 10 min point.

    Steve will have the final decision but he will of course try to go with the majority.

    Sorry for the extra work load Steve but think of the power you now have!!!!

    If anyone has any objections let me know and sorry for changing the format at this late stage.

    Enjoy!
