We highly recommend that you join us on TeamSpeak, and that you use an app called Crew Chief. It gives you an audio spotter that tells you when cars are alongside, greatly increasing your awareness and reducing unnecessary incidents. You can download it here.

Love this track, starting to love the GT 3’s (although they don’t love me back) but second shift job says no...
Last Saturday had connectivity issues and missed the euro club Zolder romp... sigh
Maybe someday I’ll get to join you all.

The Saturday event is a great compliment to our Tuesday club with a nice influx of racers from all over the globe so give it another go this Saturday as it will be on the same track.

It's called "sandbagging" :laugh:... Wish they would bring back the US servers so I wouldn't get kicked off all the time because my ping is too high.

Is it possible to get a recording of one of the leader board fast laps? I've plateaued at 1:50.5. :redface:

Go to the leaderboard and click on the "challenge " button at the end of their line. That will download their ghost into your session. Go to gameplay options and enable ghostcars.

Two questions.
1) What do you guys have your sound settings at? In the past races I've found it very hard to hear TeamSpeak chat when I'm driving. In the pits it's no problem. I don't want to turn engine noise down too much as that is part of the immersion. Is there a setting in TeamSpeak that softens game noise when someone is talking?

2) Racing etiquette. Since I'm quite a bit slower I've been trying to avoid holding up passing drivers. If the driver is coming up on me into a series of corners I end up out-breaking myself and running wide (or off) just so as not to slow you up. Should I just hold my line through the corner sequence, knowing I'm holding you up, and then let you by on the straights?

To the second question the key is take your line. For the first I generally set the TS and CC to about half of game volume in the windows volume mixer.
