Noob here and I'd like to jump in. Started way back with GP Legends and have been dabbling more recently with ACC and Raceroom. I'll stay out of the way and try to learn from you guys (if I can keep you in sight).

Welcome to the club Scott, I think you will find a wide range of skill level here to be sure to have some good racing. If you haven't already click on a few of the links in OP to get acclimated to TeamSpeak, Crew Chief, Tips and Setups and a video on club rules.
If you have any questions post them here as we all work together in making this club succeed. Again welcome and have fun.

I can't seem to get a grip on those Porches so I will probably be in the #77 BMW M1 Procar
Well, that's a bit of a relief. Maybe it's not just me. I was really struggling with the Porsche and jumped into the M1 and it was so much easier to drive. Part of me wants to stick with the Porsche for the challenge (like I'm not challenged enough as it is).

Regrettably, Lady Porsche and I are not on speaking terms at the moment after our falling out at Salzburgring, so I shall be attending this festive gathering on foreign soil with my mistress instead...with a deep fascination for all things french, 84 is her preferred number of choice...however, you may refer to her as simply "the other German" ;)

I started off testing the Procar and when I got a reasonable time I decided to jump into the Porsche. I looked at the leaderboard and saw that both yours and Davids time was six seconds slower than my time in the Procar. I went back to the Procar and practiced some more.

I may test the Porsche just for gits and shiggles but I think this race is gonna be heavy on Procars.

Yeah the M1 is really no comparison to the Porsche in driveability and lap time as difficult as both are to drive the Porsche makes you feel like your working that much harder. To keep the field somewhat balanced I will switch to the Porsche.

The Porsche is a hand full. The best I've ran so far is a 1:40 in practice. At no point did I feel comfortable with the car. I'm sticking with it, but this is going to be one rough race.

Has anybody come across a setup that makes the Porsche a little less of a chore to drive?
