I don't know the car, nor the track, but the format sounds interesting, so put me down for a slot! These Tuesday club races are perfect for my current schedule. Now if one of you guys would organize one for Friday nights too. :)

Since the server is non-booking, I'll make sure to put it up early so that anyone wanting to practice will have lots of time. I'll also be on there helping out if I'm needed.

Cool. I tried the combo out a bit last night... and it's a challenging car to control. I'm currently unable to get under a minute laptime, but I'm sure its possible. Do you have a good starting setup for this car/track already? No matter how many times I do setup alterations, I always seem to make a mess of it... and the default sure doesn't feel like it is optimal.

@Russell Sobie I drove the car myself with the stock setup, but i think the shortest gears for the car are good. other than that and my FFB i didn't change anything.

There's something wrong with the FFB settings in this car around the centre. It "knocks" when changing direction, almost like it's trying to click into centre before going past centre. This might not be an issue for a wheel like the G27 that has a dead zone in the middle, but it's down right horrible on the clubsport v2. I don't know if I'll have the time to setup my second rig with the G27 before race start.

I was driving it yesterday with a clubsport v1 and had no trouble. Maybe it was the update. haven't tried it today.

If we don't get six in the next 1.5 hours, I'm going to need to back out to make other plans for this evening.

I'll sign up, not sure what the pick-up means though, just that there's no booking hour ahead of time?
