A message to all Drivers

If you run off track, you have to check to 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. Do not race on your out lap, let other drivers by. 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.

Golden Rule
  1. If you hit somebody off the track and carry on like nothing happened, you take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
  2. Instead, you should always wait for the affected drivers, and that way you can be 100% sure you will not get a ban.
Track limits
  1. No more than 2 wheels over the white/yellow line without a lift of the gas please.
    You will be penalized if you break our rules
Note: Please use your full real name in teamspeak & server. Not doing so WILL result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium member.

Any thoughts on performance difference appreciated matey!
I'm watching a replay of some historic racing at Goodwood earlier today. Will try the cars in a bit.
May even switch cars if I prefer the Alfa. Love em both though. May even swap between R1 and R2. :roflmao: :thumbsup:

Lol, I feel the same Denis!
Definitely in! I'll let you know the car once I had a chance to try them out :thumbsup: Thanks for organising!
Good to see you Chris, thoughts appreciated on possible BoP :thumbsup:

Spec says (I guess) the RS should be quicker, though in my meagre hands the Alfa is quicker by a sec or so. Only used stock setup for the RS and the one below for the Alfa, will try again tomorrow.
EDIT: Have had time to try them both for a good few laps today (Sun), managed identical, quicker, times with each - so if there's no comments/opinions tomorrow there probably won't be any BoP. :)

Alfa, please John. I'm just a little bit slower in it as with the Ford but beautiful looks and sound (and steering wheel on the right side :D) .

(Damn, this track is hard to learn!. So many turns that look alike but still need a little different approach)
