Let's fill up the grid! You can ask other drivers to race with you by using the tag function of the forum. Just type an @ directly followed by the user name and this person will receive a notification. Example @@RaceDepartment

Our racing clubs are foremost meant to gain online experience so please help other drivers out when they have questions about the event, the car, the track, the setup or a combination. This is not a league race, it's not about who wins, it's for some fun, so please join us on TeamSpeak and build a little community spirit! The more fun we make it, the more inclined people will be to join in and make the grids bigger.

Priority access
In case of a large amount of sign-ups premium members are given priority access to enter this event.

NOTE TO CLUB MEMBERS:
I would just like to remind everyone these club events are just for fun. No matter if you are posting record lap times, or if you are vastly off the pace, how fast or slow you are does not matter. As long as you are able to follow the rules, and be courteous towards other drivers, you have something to contribute as well as something to learn from others. Please don't be discouraged by how well you know the car or track. If you are someone who is normally competing for podiums, but you don't know the track, look at it as a test of your instincts and an opportunity for the slower members to place higher. I realise everyone wants to be competitive, but this results in lower sign ups as people tend to shy away from events they are not as fast in. So please, sign up for events you are slow in as well. This is all about the fun and the learning experience, leagues will come later for all the :alien:'s.

I've had a bit of a family emergency come up and I don't think I will be able to participate. :( I will get the server up ahead of time for you though

I'm on the if list now. Wife and I got home from the store, and in the time opening the garage door and walking into the house, or power went out. I have no clue if it will get restored in time for the race. There are loads of people around the area that still haven't gotten power back on from the storms we had on Friday.

Thanks Keith! The car feels more like the first setup that I downloaded. I understand what you mean about the car coming around and stuff. It was happening when I was practicing before hopping on the server, but it didn't quite feel right. But if it helps get me through corners I cant complain too much :) It helped shave off nearly a second off of my best time and probably can do more if I can master some corners better.

Glad it helped a bit Fred. Setups can definitely be tricky (especially on this car) but other than being able to get the power down as quickly as possible in the most important corners (my number one objective); making the car balanced when it loses traction (all four wheels sliding about the same time) is important for me so that when I overcook it, it is controllable and stable. Enjoyed the two man race and look forward to more of the same!
