    I need to stop trying to race online. I can't compete, especially when everyone who comes to these events are all really fast.

    You must also use your real name in-game, at least while on the server, so that the race organisers are able to easily identify each person. Previously people used a different name in-game to that which they use in the forums, which made it rather difficult for organisers to figure out who was who when trying to communicate with a specific driver. For this reason we mandated the use of real names when taking part in online events. And participants are required to use this name as their forum name, or alternatively they must have it added to their profile (as you have done) so that they can be identifed. The rules have not been change, at least not recently; this has been the case for a few years now. Please see the opening post in this thread (you will notice that it is from 2015) and the rules for more information.

    I counte
    So why haven't I been booted before? this is not my 1st race by any means. Are you calling me a liar? my name is on the forum. im guessing your talking about in game??? either way ive NEVER been booted for this reason. So im not sure if im booted based off people having a bad day or what. But if their is an issue with me I don't mind excepting a Refund if their is going to be inconsistency with the rules or if people like your self can pick and choose when I can race and when I cant.

    It was great to get a full grid, more is always merrier, received no complaints from any of the drivers in this event, which is always a good thing.

    Glad that most of you had fun. There was a lot of DNF, but I guess that was down to the track.

    Congrads to the podiums as always, terrific pace :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup: and congrads to all the drivers that finished :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Hope to see you all next week at Monza :thumbsup:

    This game is amazing. I used default settings with Aston martin in practice but it felt quite slippery. I changed the rear downforce to max and it was much easier.

    My PC is no longer to play rF2 and I decided to abandon the race for safety.
    Thanks for the race.

    Well actually, I should never have signed you up ..my bad. You need to be a premium member before you can race.

    I hope you become a premium member and join us again soon :thumbsup:
