    Welcome to the Americas R3E racing club where all skill levels are welcomed and encouraged to participate for a relaxed and friendly racing atmosphere.

    We support good hard racing and just ask you to respect track limits, basic racing etiquette and most importantly, each other.


    And now back to what is near and dear to all racers of a certain age, Group 5. If you aren't familiar take a drive in one of these beasts to test your nerve around Sonoma with it's elevation changes and high speed will get your heart pumping.

    All premium members can sign up for this event. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for a challenge!

    If you need any help don't hesitate to ask on TeamSpeak... there's no such thing as a stupid question, and if no one has the answer, I will get one before the next event.

    Looking for tips on setting up for a Pit Stop, Glossary of FFB Terms, TS Notifier or other How To's for R3E check out the great resources here.

    Track: Sonoma Long

    Tuesday 13/08/19
    Practice:
    21:00 ET (30 minutes)
    Qualifying: 21:30 ET (15 minutes)

    Warmup : 21:45 ET (5 minutes)
    Race : 21:50 ET (40 minutes) - Mandatory pit stop (minimum of two tires)

    Selecting a car/livery is optional and is just a way of showing your preference. Everyone is free to choose what they like as duplicates are allowed.

    I am going to ask everyone to please keep the chat to a minimum during the race, especially with the great turn out we have had as it may be distracting to some drivers as well as talking over each will get alot of 'what did you say?'
    If we can keep the chat to warning a driver in regards to lapped traffic, giving someone your intent on entering pits if they are approaching, or overall track awareness would greatly be appreciated.


    the FReD (Finishers Rewards Drawing)
    J-F of Sector 3 wants us to have a successful kick off to the club and has generously provided redeem codes for 200 VRP each that can be used on content of your choice, or just save it for use later as there is no expiration.

    Each week three randomly selected drivers that complete the race, NO DNF's or Disconnects, will be awarded the VRP. Does not matter where you finish as long as you DO finish to qualify for drawing.

    Each of the next twelve weeks (ending Sept 24, 2019) we will award the VRP to the three randomly selected drivers. There is no limitation as the amount of VRP you can win, so show up and finish each week.:D

    At the end of twelve weeks the top four drivers with the most number of complete races will also be awarded 200 VRP each. (in the event of ties a random drawing will be done).

    *I am not a lawyer, or pretend to be one, and am not responsible for loopholes perceived or otherwise in this rewards drawing:).

    This I think will be the biggest challenge to date the horsepower being delivered in a variety of methods with cars 30-40 years old and the elevation changes will be as exciting to watch as it will be exhilarating to drive.
