A message to all Drivers

If you run off track, you have to check and see that its clear before you re-enter the track. Do not just keep the gas pinned and pull back on track.
When entering the track from the pits stay off the racing line until you are up to speed and do not race on your out lap. Let other drivers by in qualifying.
On re-entering the track stay off the racing line until you are up to race speed and do not block any fast approaching car. Remember, you've made the mistake by going off so let them by cleanly.


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.

BTW, just noticed - I assume practice will in fact start at 20:00 UTC, not at 19:00 UTC, right? Daylight savings time ends tonight.

OK - So now I'm confused (more than I usually am ;)). Here in the US, we don't change our clocks until NEXT weekend. So, can anyone tell me what time this week's race is in the eastern time zone of the US?

Oh - BTW - Denis, please sign me up!

And one last thing - Is there any way to have the driver's names displayed above the cars while racing? Or perhaps that's controlled on the server end? I ask only because I see the AI names when racing offline and thought that this would be useful online.

Thanks!

The default button is the tab key to show names,

Be aware that the driver names are insanely small (IMO).

If you're on the Eastern Daylight Savings time, then that's UTC-4, so practice should start at 4 PM for you I believe.
