    Great to read the non-Europeans will be attracted to RaceDepartment also.
    I hope the event(s) will also be a success.

    Edward i was thinking of making it in the afternoon US/Canada time zone so for europe it would be in the evening and saddly for the oceania members it would be in the middle of the night, its very hard to set an event that could include all time zone :-(

    Mid-day on Sunday is bad for me due to Church commitments. RD already does mostly mid-day races as that is evening for Europeans. That is my principal problem in participating. The only day I am generally available at mid-day is Saturday, and when I can, I participate in those events now.

    I think that it is great to do some races in the North American timezone, but generally evenings work better than during the day.

    Thanks!

    Chris

    hi Chris and thanks for giving your opinion, its the first event that will be organise for the US/Canada time zone, its a trial run to see of members of that time zone are interested in race 07 thats why i have to set the event in a time and day that would maximise the grid. my ultimate goal is to set maybe 1 or 2 events a week in our time zone but for that i need to have enought members to maximise the grid. the race this coming sunday will be set for 1 pm or 2 pm east cost time. hope you'll be able to join :thumb:

    Hello Yves,
    I would really like to do the North American races also - but as Chris said midday on the weekends is when most of the European races happen for us, so why not try to do a weekly evening race. North american race night tueday, wedenday, or thursday - and if it must be a weekend then sunday night or saturday night. If it were setup to automatically happen each week on a set night people could start to schedule around it. this is just my opinion - race nights work best for me.
    Thanks
