I am ashamed to admit it, but I actually had fun with the Minis @ Road America, so I taking the chance and hoping it will be the same for this track, so sign me up!

I'm gonna have to pull of it this event.

I might even need to pull out from Carterham event as well, right now it's a maybe.
I know more tomorrow. But for now, the Mini event is a no go.

Hey Nitro,

in order to race in club events, you'll need to apply for a license - don't worry, it's an easy process outlined here

Looking forward to seeing you on the track! :)

Excellent, I just completed my app. Thanks.

Question though. How do I change my current username to my real name? Or is it some sort of different process?

Depends on what username you are talking about ;) Your forum user will be renamed when your license application is approved, so you don't have to worry about that - just keep in mind that you'll have to logon with your full name or your email address afterwards.

As for the in-game username, the easiest way is to create a new profile with your full name - however, if you want to keep your stats, configuration and so on, you can create a new profile, then copy your existing profile's files (somewhere over at %USERPROFILE%\Documents\SimBin\RACE 07\ - not exactly sure, not at home right now ;)) over to the new profile's directory. Finally, you'd have to rename the .PLR file present in the profile folder, IIRC.

Yup, just needed to know about the forum name. I've got Race07 handled. Thanks again!

'twas a small grid, but still good fun :)

Tinkering with the setup a bit, I still hadn't a very good car going - pretty okay, though, as I managed to qualify 4th/7.
Starting fairly well, I utterly misjudged the cold tyres/brakes and ran wide into T4. Now last, the hunt was on - passed David a bit later and arrived at a nice four-way-battle with Dennis, Valerio and Nuno, who had dropped back - passed Dennis, who, unfortunately, went off immediately afterwards as I might've braked a bit early - sorry about that!
After passing Valerio, I was gaining the tiniest bit on Nuno at about 1-2 tenths per lap. With all drivers done with pitting, I was surprised to find myself in front of Nuno - guess he had an off or a problem in the pitlane.
Now in P3 with 15 seconds to Nelson in front and another 15 to Nuno in 4th place, I could relax a bit - even more so when Nelson turned out to be unreachable and Nuno lost more time - brought the podium home safely :)

Thanks for racing everyone, see you next week!

I Logged ten laps this morning then about the same in pre race practice. I was fast, or I felt so but Reik Major was majorly faster. Qualified third, and got up to second quickly had a fairly lonely race, but this track is among my favorites so I enjoyed my self :thumbsup:. Finished second, so I feel back to my normal self. Yesterday was merely a warm up for all my time away on vacation.

I feel like I may have exceeded track limits multiple times, I will check my replay and report back :unsure:
