    In the RaceDepartment Racing Club week 36 and following weeks, we will race the Renault Clio Cup Series! This week we attend Mills Metro Park.

    The Renault Clio 197 with an F4R RS 2.0 litre engine, 4 cylinders and 16 valve, has a sequentially controlled transmission with 6 gears and controlled differential. The dimensions are 3772mm in lengths, 1675mm in width with a wheelbase of 2475mm, has a weight of only 930kg, equipped with Michelin tyres and is front wheel driven.

    This weeks track of choice is Mills Metro Park, a track we all know from the early stage when rFactor2 got released. The short Outer Loop A lay-out is good fun for some close racing, participate this week and give your best to battle to reach the nr 1 ranking in the RD raceclub rankings in the Renault Clio Cup Series at the end of the (following) week(s).

    Both servers will be online all week for practicing. The servers are setup with an extended first practice session. Please only use this practice session when racing online for fun, do not vote it round unless being asked to do so.

    ah ok thanks for reply guys
  10. nice combo :thumbsup:
  11. Little confused here. :O_o:
    When I go online there are always some people there.
    Short before the race I loose connection and then I can't see the server anymore, after some time the server is there again but nobody online anymore.

    Is this happening only to me or to all the others too?

  13. If I remember correctly somewhere between 19 and 19:30 I lost connection yesterday and the day before. Not sure about the time tho.
    Then I can't see the server for some time, for about 5-10 mins but I can see the Monaco server. After I check again, the server is there but nobody online anymore. So no racing.

    Maybe it's just my new net connection, dunno, maybe just bad luck.
