Information

Welcome to the Aquila CR1 Series! This will be a stint of races over the next four weeks, the idea being to add a little friendly competition to our club racing. These events remain open to drivers of all levels, so please don't be afraid to sign up! Details of the rounds are as follows:

20/06/20 - Rounds 1 & 2: Zandvoort - Grand Prix
27/06/20 - Rounds 3 & 4: Autodrom Most - Grand Prix
04/07/20 - Rounds 5 & 6: Slovakia Ring - Grand Prix
11/07/20 - Rounds 7 & 8: Road America - Grand Prix

Before you sign up, please be aware of the following:

1) The Aquila CR1 is a free car, no purchase necessary. You only need the tracks above to participate.

2) Participation in all events in the series is not mandatory. You can sign up or not, as you please.

3) If you sign up for an event then you are expected to finish both races. It's just good sportsmanship and shows respect to your fellow drivers.

4) Points will be awarded for each race and tracked over the series, but there are no prizes. It's just for fun.

5) Every driver should try to use a unique livery. Please state your chosen car number when you sign up. If all liveries are already taken (ie, we have 24 drivers signed up), duplicates are fine.

6) Full damage will be enabled, which includes the flat-spotting of tyres.

7) Despite the extra competition, our regular club rules are still in effect. The Golden Rule absolutely still applies to these events.

Voice Chat Update

RaceDepartment has decided to switch it's voice chat services from TeamSpeak to Discord. While the TS servers will still be available for a while, there's no sense in delaying the inevitable so the R3E club will use Discord from this event onwards.

To join the RD Discord server you can either click the link in the OP, click the big DISCORD button at the top of the forums, or click here. Once you're in you will see the R3E club voice chat in the list on the left. Just click it to start chatting.

I'm going to be honest, I'm not a big fan of the Discord text chat aspects. I would therefore ask that those taking part in R3E events still post their questions and general chit-chat in the forum event threads as usual, so that we don't end up with a split community. I for one won't be monitoring the Discord text chat, so will only be found here outside of live events.

If you don't already have it, you can download Discord here.

AGAIN WITH THE #223!

RE TEAMCHAT/DISCORD CHAT: We really need somehow to ask questions/comments during the race prelims. I prefer text over voice, just too much chit chat, echo's, cough's, throat clearing for me, and my mic doesn't work good.

Try using push to talk, there is option in teamspeak/discord. No problems with background noise and echo and much faster when needing to say something. :thumbsup:

R3E does not have a proper in-game text chat function so voice is the only way for now.

Sometimes there is a lot of chat in practice sure, but that's not an issue in my opinion. Practice should be about talking, swapping tips, getting to know your fellow club members. Once qualy starts the chat disappears because people know others are trying to concentrate, and during the race chat is usually limited to the odd apology or a little friendly banter, but not constant.

Sometimes someone will have their mic too sensitive and it picks up coughs and other noises, but they're usually told by myself or others and get it sorted before the race starts. Worst case I can remove "noisy" people from the voice chat if they're not heeding the advice.

Of course I know not everyone likes to voice chat, especially if English is not their first language. That's fine, but it just means that all questions and comments will need to be made here in the forums rather than during the event. Perhaps one day R3E will have a proper text chat option.

Yeh I like the voice chat. It means I can ask Steve for setup tips, listen to Andrea tell Steve yet another anecdote involving Italy, and hear Steve come up with alternative rules for Calvyn, to level the playing field :p

You can mate, if you right click a person on voice chat, it gives you the option to send message :thumbsup:

Count me in with the #69 again!
What's the pronunciation of your surname mate? I must have used at least three variations during the stream... "Koopers"... "Keipers"... "Kuppers"... :p

Noticed it already when rewatching the stream. To be honest, I'm not too sure about the English pronunciation, I think going with Koopers is the best, as the English translation is also Coopers. Sometimes the Dutch language has strange sounds.
