    US Assetto Corsa events are back! I am happy to announce that Race Department is now able to offer US time zone friendly Assetto Corsa events once again. I have partnered up with a long time sim racing friend @Gelly916 to host these events. As of now we will be racing on Wednesday nights starting at 2100 (9PM) EST. This is the first race event, we completed a testing session on 2.27 and everything worked as planned.

    This race is in honor of the previous US event host @Bobby Pennington who did a great job hosting events and is an extremely valuable member of this community.

    ADVANCED - INTERMEDIATE - BEGINNER - EVERYBODY IS VERY WELCOME

    GRRRR! Won't be able to make it due to a series race in another league, but VERY glad RD is doing this. Being self-employed here in the eastern US, there are times when I CAN race in the afternoon, but it's much easier for me in the evenings. Looking forward to more races and a huge thanks to @scottiedawg66 and @Gelly916 !!!!

    Douglas Garcia right on! I put you in the porsche to ensure some diversity on the grid, should make for better replay / pics. If you want something else, just let me know.

    @churchlady @newbert @Nick Gregory let me know what car you want, I need to get the server configured :thumbsup:

    Glad to see this up and running! Is this going to be a regular thing? I'd like to participate, but I can't make it this week, and usually I'd only be able to drop in for the second race. Is that possible?

    Just wondering what kind of lap times you guys are getting in your practice sessions around Vallelunga?

    Thanks.
