The newly formed RaceDepartment Rookie Races continue to go from strength to strength as we look to expand the events on offer... With two successive weeks of double full house servers in our EU Abarth 500 races, we are so pleased and honoured that so many new and old faces have decided to join us out on the track, some of whom are attending an online race with RaceDepartment for the very first time. When we first decided to host these rookie friendly events using the mighty Abarth 500 in Assetto Corsa we never thought it possible to see such a positive reception so soon into the programme, none more obvious than in today's (22.3.17) 44 drivers taking to the track at the Nurburgring in Germany for some brilliant on track action for both the "new" and more experienced of our driving strength here at RD. With such outstanding success already achieved, and a rapidly growing US racing club also seeing some great racing and close grids, we just wanted to take the opportunity to say "thank you" to everyone who is taking part, and to encourage those of you who have yet to dip your toe in the club races to hurray along and get yourself signed up for some fun! Such has been the success of the Abarth 500 we've already filled up one full server for next Wednesday's race and server two is well on it's way, less than one hour after it went live! So if you are thinking about getting involved in Assetto Corsa online here at RaceDepartment, then don't wait too long or you might find yourself without a space on the grid!!! We have the following "Rookie Races" scheduled in both the EU and US time zones for the coming week. Remember sign up early, the more people already confirmed on the grid encourages others to join in the action, so sign up early and help your fellow racers make the decision and get themselves involved! We run event's in our free time to give something back to the community and nothing rewards us more than seeing a full grid of sim racers having a seriously good time out on track. Trust me, once bitten you will never look back! EU - Rookies: Formula Abarth (Live Stream) @ Vallelunga - Friday March 24, 2017 US - Rookies: Formula Abarth @ Monza Junior - Sunday March 26th 2017 US - Rookies: Abarth 500 AC @ Nurburgring - Monday, March 27 2017 EU - Rookies: Abarth 500 @ Brands Hatch (Live Stream) - Wednesday March 29, 2017 As well as our hugely successful "Rookie Races" we also host a wide variety of superb content in Assetto Corsa. If you like classic cars, GT3 machines, Porches or WEC style multiclass racing, we have you covered and more! Hit us up at the Assetto Corsa Club and League racing forum and get yourself involved in the action. Remember, the earlier you put your name down on the start sheet, the more likely it is that others will follow suit and join you out on track. With a website of our size, and the quality of Assetto Corsa and our racing clubs, I see no reason why we can't have a full server for every event we host. Join in the action, it is easily the best way to get the most out of your simulation! Do you like racing online in Assetto Corsa here at RD? Have you taken part in pervious "Rookie Races" events?
