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 member.

Hopefully this event and the close racing is as good as spa. It's a pretty grippy surface here... that was in a gt3 Z4 though.
I did some practice laps to see if this track is any good with Group C and I had a blast. Especially the first half feels damn fast and has a great flow to it. I hope there's no car too OP but that's just how it is at Group C.
 
I Will stick with my trusty Porsche Long Tail, 30 minutes will make the tyre choice here interesting.
As Andreas said, much more fun than I ever thought it was going to be. Almost abandoned the LT.
But keeping it in the spirit of the thing, sticking with the LT seems only right.
I hope to give Andreas a run for his money if I can. :unsure:

I took the C9 for practice as well. It felt amazing on this track, might be competitive too. What do you have the turbo set at during race Andreas? I wonder if the engine will last 30min at 100% :rolleyes:
 
Probably really bad karma to bring it up, but an interesting if macabre note: In 1973 in turn 7, a German fellow named Helmuth Koinigg showed what would have happened to Romain Grosjean without modern safety measures. Maybe the worst incident in F1 history, a year after Francois Cevert's death in turn 3 drove Jackie Stewart into retirement.
