This week we visit a classic: the Red Bull Ring, formerly known as the A1-Ring, and before that, the old Österreichring. An undulating circuit through the Austrian hills, the Ring provides a great opportunity for some close, clean racing. Come and join us!

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

Count me in please Chris

Not sure of car, if I'm having trouble with lift-off oversteer and keeping the rear tyres in the 650S, would either the R8 or Huracan be any better? Maybe it's just how I drive LOL

To me the R8 feels more balanced, but i might be biased because Its by far the GT3 I've driven the most.

Increase diff coast to control off throttle oversteer. Also don't run 650s with a bunch of rake. Keep it flat(ish)

Thanks for the advice @JohannesK and @RobertR1! Much appreciated!

I'll have a bit of a practice on Saturday so I can let @Chris Down know my car choice in plenty of time

I might be a bit rusty, I haven't driven AC since Road Atlanta but I reckon I've racked up 500+km in ACC since then
