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




Please reply in this thread and come join us this Wednesday 3/6 for some laughs and close, clean racing.

These are social events and our objective is for everyone to have fun and to foster close racing. Don't worry if you are not a top level driver, we are here to help. @Gelly916 and I have a lot of experience in both sim and real life racing and we are happy to help get people up to speed. Our goal is to put fun first and competition second, there are plenty of places to compete but this venue will serve members who are looking for a community that is focused on fun clean racing.

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 !!!!

I also don't know which car I'm going to use. But doesn't matter for now! I'm happy that these events are back!

You can assign any car for me if you want.

Thank you guys.

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.
