Additional Information

1) When signing up you must post your Steam ID, so that we know who is who.

2) You must ensure that you have read and understood our Racing Club Rules before signing up. Ignorance is no excuse.

3) Do not click the Exit button at the end of qualifying. Just wait for the session to advance automatically.

4) There will be a two minute timer between qualifying and the race. You must confirm you are ready before it ends or you will be automatically DQ'd.

5) If the event uses a two race format, you will be returned to the lobby after race one. Simply head back to the track and there will be a five minute "super-pole" followed by race two.

6) We strongly advise the use of Crew Chief, an app which gives you a spotter during races. This will provide audio cues when cars are alongside, greatly increasing your awareness and reducing the frequency of unnecessary incidents.

Does this car have to be driven with a clutch and stick? I realise the real one would but I’ve just been using pedal shifters and having difficulty with the clutch.
Edit: turned on auto clutch!

Strange issue when I change anything in the BMW setup, when I go back to the setup screen it’s reset to default...
Now I’m battling a placebo effect.

edit2: tried the merc out and lap one with default setup is 1 second faster that I could manage in the BMW.... shame

Ross, I'd like to sign up.

I have given both cars a try and have a query. This may be more of a set up FFB issue but I cannot sense any grip/loss of grip from the rear before it's all too late. It makes lapping consistently entirely a rhythm thing not a feel thing. I've made a few changes to rear ARB, break balance and toe to get a better balance but still no feel.

I'm I alone in this?

Hi all, would anyone know why my vr hmd is 'for a split second' showing a mirror upside-down view? It's like a glitch? I've tried resetting,re-installing, and have looked online to no avail. It's driving me mad, and I don't think ill be able to race tonight (or any other night) until it's sorted. Any help would be most appreciated.

No but I did have a similar issue when being placed in the mini on the grid where I would be inside a bush or something. This never lasted more than half a second though so didn’t impact my race.

No worries Mark.
I’m waiting for the G2 Reverb reviews once the mass market gets their hands on them. Maybe I’ll ask the missus to chip in for a Xmas present!
