    The Autódromo Internacional Nelson Piquet (Nelson Piquet International Autodrome), also known as Jacarepaguá after the neighbourhood in which it was located, was a motorsport circuit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Opened in 1977, it hosted the Formula One Brazilian Grand Prix on ten occasions, and was also used for CART, motorcycle racing and stock car racing. In 2012, it was demolished to make way for facilities to be used in the 2016 Summer Olympics

    Two days of racing in open servers makes you appreciate RD's level of competition even more. Although one might think that a serious sim attracts more serious drivers, it was even worse than in my Gran Turismo days. Dirty driving, insults, massive lag, getting kicked for being faster, you name it, you got it.
    I've been missing our races, gentlemen.

    Yes i did have a go in another server just to see what it was like,
    if this is what drivers call sim racing i wont be doing it again to soon
    i saw the times posted and went into slow mode and started from the rear,
    I lasted 3 laps before id had enough of the bad driving, i didnt see much chat but as far as driving standards it was so bad.. the guy next to me on the gridd just punted every driver out the way.
    i sat on his rear and went through the gaps he made, on the second lap on the straight he decided to slow then as i got along side he just drove into the side of me... i did carry on but then was punted by other dirvers.. end of the 3rd lap i left

    Thanks Marco.
    I actually had some fun on the WBGS server.
    There's a guy doing live broadcasts of the races.
    Really thorough moderating of the drivers on the public server (maybe a bit too serious.. no problems for good for clean drivers though, no matter how fast or slow)
    Quite funny having a running commentary as you are racing, great fun.

    Anyways Im in!!

    Hey folks.
    Is there a problem with the track? Every time I try and join the server, I keep getting a "Track Geometry Error" and a couple of other mis-matches and end up being kicked.

    I can get onto other servers out there in the wild ok, it just seems to be the RD on as far as I can see. I've even reinstalled the game twice to see if mine had become corrupted, but still, I get the error.

    Any help would be great!

    i just tried it and i get the same error as Christopher. i also tried it with Formula Truck instead of Formula Truck 2013 and it worked so the server is set with the Formula Truck Dedi instead of Formula Truck 2013 dedi server.
