Hmmm.....Tough Track with lots of blind corners.

I'm not sure whether I have the correct car version installed or not. When will the practice server be up so that I can check?

Thanks.
Bert

@newbert I am working to get the server up, had a little issue with the RD server but it should be up soon. We always run the most current version of the mod so I would just update if you are un sure!

@Bobby Pennington explain to a dumb Mick - what's a Huckleberry :)
Well Mick, coming from a Hick, for me it's always meant Huckleberry Finn from the Mark Twain writings, but it did have other meaning to me as well. When we were kids we'd say that's my Huckleberry or in sports when someone was getting a little to big for their britches and called somebody out or needed taken down a notch or two, one of us would step up and say I'm your Huckleberry. In other words, pick on me. Didn't know you were going to get a history lesson or a Thesaurus on the word from a Southern boy did you:roflmao:

So Mick, educate a Hick on the slight on the Irish people by calling them a Mick. We may need to go out and spread a little Huckleberry love:sneaky::D

@Keith_G where are your old bones at? You're probably on a mountain bike, camping, hang gliding, bungee jumping or some other crazy thing that only someone that's senile would do:roflmao: but if your around it'd be nice to get on track with you again. Hope you've had a great summer man. Sorry I haven't been around as much, but the docs have been trying to kill me off:cautious::cautious:

@Bobby Pennington "Mick" isn't much of a slight...mainly comes from so many Irish people being called Michael (nothing to do with Jordan!) kind of like "Paddy" for Patrick (Pádraig). There's far worse of course, "stupid Mick" is a common slur to hear that will definitely rustle a few feathers! Don't hear that hear but I heard it a lot in England.

Scott, I have a weird thing in Content Manager where if I have the "ideal weather" checkbox selected, I have to unselect and reselect it every time I relaunch the game or the weather conditions will change to "random" even though they are greyed out because "ideal weather" is selected. And to make it even better, even though it says random, it is actually raining every single time, although the time of day seems to be random. So basically, if I have ideal weather selected and fail to cycle the checkbox every time I launch the game, it will be raining on a random time of day. Maybe you're having a similar issue?

Anyway, like I said, I'm out of town all next week, so I'll miss this one, but if anyone streams it I'll try to watch at least. Hope you guys have fun!

Hey Scott - I didn't mean to give the impression that I'm in (yet), although I probably will be. I'll let you know for sure before racetime.

But first - does anyone have any tips to learning this freakin' circuit? Cripes, there are so many blind approaches with late or double apexes! I keep missing the last left-hander unless I almost come to a stop!

And even the AI can't get thru Turn 1 cleanly! :D

For the hard left after the hill there are 2 boxes on the left. I use those as markers and brake just after those 2 boxes. the AI line is not optimized for this track...

.....and ( I forgot to add), FWIW to my eyes, there aren't a lot of visual cues on this circuit - especially towards the end of the lap.
