*IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ*

Historic racing is famous for the gentleman racer era and that is the kind of atmosphere I want to foster in the club. Please take time to read these web pages and try to get an understanding of what racing in this club is/should be all about.

Thanks

The Guide to Road Racing, Part 8: Passing Etiquette - Winding Road

Golden Rule
  1. Be 100% sure it's not your fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
  2. Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.
  • Track limits
    1. No more than 2 wheels over the white/yellow line without a complete lift of the gas please if it is safe to do so.
      You will be penalized if you break our rules
  • Note: Please use your full real name in teamspeak. Not doing so may result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium member.

Please sign me in.

I try to get on practise tonight about the usually time.

Just as a note if some of you running also into that problem to figure out which utc time is your local time and don't want to think every week again about it. You can set easily a second time to your taskbar like I did here.

Aww. Last time this car was used I was doing an iRacing race.
This time... the same - also, I've removed one of my wisdom teeth (I wasn't wise enough), and are not really getting much food in, so I have no energy/concentration. I shouldn't drive at all!
Seems like I have to use the M1 for a Sunday event to be able to race the car! :p

Better luck next time for me! :D Also, RDRC is in it's last month, I'll get a lot of time free'd up after that, so I really expect to be back to more regular historic driving again! I miss sliding around! :)
