Although I am very sure that this event takes place on Bologna Historic, this doesn't show up anywhere on the thread.

I would've signed up for this if it wasn't for the unfitting track... just saying...
These cars (all formula cars) are immense fun when raced on proper fitting tracks.

Obviously, I know F1 raced here. F1 races in monaco too, can't say it's really fitting.
When I say fitting, I don't mean fitting for world class drivers who have done tons of laps of practice, I mean fitting for dudes who don't have much time to practice and are just on to have some fast fun. I can already see the havoc the high kerbs and slow tight chicanes will wreak on the already unstable under acceleration formula v12s. IMO, a track fits If, lets say, the track is wide enough, the walls aren't too close (more room for mistakes), and there are safe overtaking opportunities. Can't say that too much about this track. So generally, a track that is more forgiving is better in the formula class for club races. Maybe brands hatch will be more fitting (If I recall the track correctly, which I can't honestly say).

@Tal oh yes, that, absolutely I agree with, but people wanted to race these here (and then you see the sign ups are low, so I can't win). In general, yes, not only are these cars not very 'jump in and have fun' friendly, this track is also with the high kerbs as you say. Agreed!

@Nox Sign me up please :thumbsup:
I agree that the track is not very "driver friendly" regarding overtaking opportunities. But most times I think people are just not taking enough care in club races and drive the cars too hard on the edge. Yes the V12s are difficult too drive and yes the track is not easy but it´s a [Mod Edit: No swearing] load of fun ;)

cheers
