    As some of you might know I haven't been able to race for the last couple of months but from September on wards I should have access to my racing rig again.

    On Friday night I would like to revive the legendary MINI Friday Club Events again followed by a new season of the RD MINI Challenge somewhere in the winter.

    Let me know if I can count on you on Fridays for some good old chat and banter on Teamspeak and lots of social fun on the racing track.

    (yeah looking at you @quicksilver384 :D)

    A controller should be fine for a little spin in the formation lap, no worries. Having you on TS for the banter would be huge! :)

    Just don't tell Ross and you should be fine...:whistling:

    So that makes 4 on the grid already! Just need around 30 more people and we would be back to a normal Mini Friday grid! Can't wait, come September! :thumbsup:

    I'm a recent AMS convert and still haven't raced online with it, so this sounds like the ideal class to cut my teeth with! I like the idea of regular Friday cup class racing, so you can count me in when the time comes!

    It is a great event for cutting your teeth. Even for experienced drivers, the limited power/speed and virtually spec machinery lead to close racing and a great environment for developing your race-craft.

    It's been the introduction to online racing here for many tens maybe even hundreds of drivers in the past decade. I'd absolutely encourage you to give it a go and anyone else who is new to or maybe anxious about getting involved in multiplayer racing.

    I probably won't be able to attend all events, but am definitely interested in riding these little beasts again! ;)

    I'm interested, I've not raced online since 2012 due to my working days but they should be changing mid July and this would be a great way to get back into it.

    I'm interested. I didn't make it into last year's races but I did mirror some of the series in my offline races and practice. Also saw some of the coverage.

    One request is for plenty of notice of the tracks as I need a lot of laps to get even close to the slowest times. :)

    Is summer over yet??? Bring on Minitember :D:D:D

    Even picked up a fanatec BMW rim specifically for this as driving a mini with an F1 rim does not feel right. :roflmao:

    Can't wait myself Shawn. Missed racing so much! Plastering of the RD Simroom is done. Now I only need a seat and update my PC after seven months of catching dust lol. Oh and of course a million other things to finish the house :)

    At first glance I thought that was the top of your sim cockpit in the photo... then realised it's a step ladder :D
