The Stoat Without Fear ™
- Jul 2, 2008
All - as you've seen, Ben is doing a Porsche series, which will be running alternate Wednesdays.
The Wednesdays in between Ben's events, I'll be running Legends Cars sprint evenings.
Short, simple races for - let's face it - short simple cars.

This is intended for some of the people who we've seen asking for slower, simpler cars, or for people who simply want to try rFactor out without wrestling with some über-powered brute. These cars are still pretty fast, they're simple, they're well matched, a lot of the set up is locked off so they aren't bewildering and, once you get your head around how they handle (which will take about 2 or 3 laps at most), good fun to race.
They can bite you if you start taking liberties, so they aren't completely fool proof and "my first racing car", but - and this is important - they give you ample warning if things start to go pear shaped, give you enough time to try and sort it out, and they respond well to corrective measures.
They won't slam you into a wall, and leave you sitting there thinking "What the hell happened there?". If you do end up in a twisted lump of scrap metal and concrete rubble, you will always know why.
Each evening will have 2 races, 1 race each on 2 different tracks.
Practice will be about 20-25 mins (depending on the track length). The tracks will generally not be the GP length layouts, but the Intermediate / Club / National sort of layouts, which have been ignored because the high powered cars don't work so well on them
Quali will be quite short - about 10 mins max, so we get a nice mixed grid
Races will again be 20-25 mins depending on the track length.
Personal skins aren't just allowed, they are positively encouraged. They are dead simple, 1 or 2 simple skin files and 1 *.veh file required. A good skin can be produced in a few minutes, and all instructions are included in the template download, and looking at one of the many included skins will provide you with ideas and how to pull it together.

Please use this thread to upload skins, including the number of your car, little screenshots would be cool too.
I'm using #55, I'll upload my skin later today.
