    Practice: On race day the servers will be open all day to practice
    Qualification: 19:30 GMT (20 minutes)
    Warm-up: 19:50 GMT (10 minutes)
    Race: 20:00 GMT (50 minutes)

    Special note start of the race: The drivers go to the grid as if for a standing start and wait for the red lights to go off and the green ones to go on. When the latter happens the leader starts the formation lap and drives it at a constant speed of 100-120 kph (60-75 mph) the other drivers follow in a single file!. Excessive swaying (zig-zag) and brake tests are not allowed during the formation lap. At the last corner of the track the formation lap ends and the leader speeds up to race pace . Drivers may not overtake before they cross the finish line. After that the race is on.
    To make sure everyone has a fair chance of the start every driver must make sure that is he close behind the car in front of him during the formation lap, though still leaving enough room to anticipate on unexpected manoeuvres.

  2. Thread open
    Practice server is up.

    Adjusted the Formation lap details abit so there is no confusing when the leader need to accelerate to begin the race.
  3. I've had a last minute DJ gig come up in Poland this weekend...I should be back in London for Sunday lunchtime...the question is whether I will be in a fit state to race when I get back :)
    I still hope to make the race but if not I should be able to give a few hours notice.
    I hope that is OK?
  4. I see there are both reserve driver spots free, and one driver expected to be absent from this event. Does this mean I could put my name down to take part?
  5. Is required another new skinpack?
  6. Is the same skinpack update you needed for Interlagos.

    It's the same as for Interlagos.
  8. 1.13.287 for me.
  9. Looking forward to this race guys, managed to get the last spot on the grid. I did the club event on Sunday night and really liked this track, short, fast and easy to make a mistake and crash the car. Also watch out for the evil first chicane....

    So far my best I think is a 1.11.6
  10. Comfortable car is everything here imo. More then on other tracks.
    40 times without trouble past the first chicane is more important then harder set up and 1 or 2 tenth in your Q lap. :)
    Did some setup changes for this track and feel now comfortable for the first chicane. Probably lose somewhere else some time because of that setup, but so be it. Down to mid 11 atm. Not sure if there is alot more to get, because its a short track,

    Tip of the Week :) I still have a 100% spin rate there so beware when you are driving behind me at the start (that means all of you as i am going for pole :cool: )

    Because there are some changes for this race, here is an updated spotter guide. Especially for Toby and Jari!
    First I wanted to remove the boxes with the inactive drivers but it was so annoying to move the other boxes into the right position, so there is another solution.


    Edit: Now in normal size, just click on the image.
    Edit 2: George Talbot and Anders Nilsson will form the team "N.O.T Racing". I forgot to add that.

  13. i was practicing today , and i thought it was only me, im glad im not the only one spinning LOTS there, that first chicane is a bugger! :D
  14. Must the say the chicane isnt really the bad one. But more the braking for it. :p
  15. The braking of this chicane will be the challenge of the race...
    And I don't want to think about breaking here after a boost!!! :eek:
  16. I am doing some practice tonight, if people want to join. :)
  17. if anyone wishes to join tommorow (Saturday) for some practice with me and Ken Hunter feel free to join, the server will be called RD League Practice (Hosted by me) The Session will start from 17:00 GMT and will run for atleast 1-2 hours.

    The league server is already up so everybody can join that one
  19. Never even heard of this track before this league so i was excited to get out on it and do some laps. I really like this track because it has hard braking sections and fast moving rythm type sections. It's definitely one of those tracks that i would remember even if i hadn't raced it in a year.

    As far as the race goes, I'm doing 1:13.8-1:14.4 race pace, but thats completing 20 consistent laps without a spin. Dont think i can go much faster though because just when i think i can squeak a little more out of the throttle on exit or brake a little later for the chicane, this track reaches up, grabs my balls, twists them, smashes them with a hammer, and then rips them out of my body. So you guys that can do 1:11's and 1:12's during the race get my props :) All in all a fun but very difficult track and i look forward to tommorow
  20. I am hopping to be back in time for this one. Just been informed that I am dropping my sister to Heathrow at 5pm (rush-hour) so fingers crossed all the caravans will move out of my way so I can make it back in time for the race.

    It should be fine if there is no traffic. Really looking froward to this one, would have to miss it:oops:.
