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 Discord. Not doing so may result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium

A short reminder for all who are new to Group C racing. The 4 cars differ into two "sub-classes". You have the Mazda and Porsche ST (Short-Tail) representing the "downforce class" and the Porsche LT(Long-Tail) and Sauber C9 representing the "straight line speed" class. The differences in straight-line and cornering speed between those pairs are huge. Keep in mind, that those cars usually have different braking points and different racing lines.

Entry list so far:

Yes should be no problem. After signing up it shows you a "change car" button. No need to sign-off/on again
Actually I think you do need to cancel the registration after you have chosen a car. And then register again with a new car. The Change car option is for selecting an other livery.
Anyway, that's the way I did it.

My favourite was the Ferrari and GT40, out classed at Le Mans ( no chicane)
The GT40 romped away on the long straight, managed to qualify behind the GT40’s
Made sure I had gearing left for the long straight, they then towed me up the long straight, I then overtook on the back straight and rest of the circuit,
I think also having the start / finish line there helped.
I even got Chris to throw the towel in. :roflmao:

Ahhh I will never have those funny moments again.:(

You Rotters have now got me covered now.

Actually, I was about to say that in the Mini @rOAD Atlanta I did change, but indeed it was the livery (also because there was no other choice for the cars in that race :roflmao: )

Oh then the Button text is misleading and should be "Change livery"

Anyone new to these cars you generally want to turn second gear a few clicks longer and 3rd a click longer to act as a tc. It will be very slippy out of bus stop if you don't!

You can short shift out of first if you even need to use it :)

Oh dear, what a great combo to race! I so much hope I can make it, so I signed up with the beloved 962 ST.

Unfortunately my wife has a pending appointment this Tuesday, so if it gets confirmed I'm unable to race and have to pull out. :cry::(

Little OT: I always get a sad feeling when it comes to Spa or the 962 having to think of Stefan Bellof. What a great loss. :(

Tried Group C today, what a culture shock that was. Last time out I must have spent a lot of time perfecting driving it.
Had a go in the ST, it is like a very fast GT3 car.:)

LT is like 700hp on standard 1960's mini tyres. :roflmao: :roflmao:

I think I am going to put some effort into this car. bugger.
