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, the forum and the server. Not doing so will result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you by your name as a premium member.​

I'm in! Think I can handle the Mazda after the 'vette :). This a good track with VR?
Wow that was quick Scott! :)

No idea about the vr question, though all feedback for the mod is excellent - I guess someone might have said if it was naff.

lol, thought you'd like it Han:thumbsup: ...wish I could get to like the Mazda as much as you guys:p
Well John, I like the Mazda because it is so forgiven that it's kinda relaxing to drive it. And that is very welcome after the VIR sunday and the Escort monday combo's where a mistake is easily made with huge consequences.

I just tried some laps on the practice server and boy ...what magnificent combo! It's a different layout then the one with the Lada's recently. A complete new mid sector which is very demanding even with MX5. So in my opinion it will be a real challenge and joy for every driver: aliens, mortals and newbies as well.

I'm really grateful that you selected it this for wednesday. Thanks, John!

Glad you like it the combo Han, though thanks to @Denis Betty for introducing us to this track - I was looking for something a bit different and thought this has something for all skills/abilities as soon as I tried the full track.... 'cept I couldn't beat the AI:roflmao:

The MX5 has always been popular @ RD, for me I'm just not a fan of cars that need momentum, though if we stuck with what organisers like it'd be quite boring I guess :laugh: I'd like to bring the BMW 235i for the same reason the MX5 is so popular (brings grids closer together)... in the near future I hope:)
