it should be fun I liked your local track as well, but figured we might get more sign ups with a well known track that is rarely used in AC. :)

Oh yeah, I understand! I know it's a simple little track but I think there are some slightly unique corners that make it trickier to be fast there than it initially appears. We would probably have about 2 people sign up for it though :roflmao:

If we ever did want to try it in combination with a more popular car, it's good for momentum cars, although still fun even with quite a bit faster cars. Something like AC Legends would be great there, but I know we can't do that. The M235i Racing or old DTM cars would be super fun.

Of course we could always do the E30 BMW 325i coupe there, no bias here at all, please pay no attention to my avatar picture :devilish:

I just raced this exact car/trak on iRacing not even 30 minutes ago! (Great minds think alike, I guess, eh Scott?)

Just tried a lap or two on AC and it sticks to the track a lot more than in iRacing. I'll try to make the race - will let you know in a few days.

Hey @scottiedawg66 I keep meaning to ask, is it intentional that the RD server allows ABS on cars that don't have it? Like this Miata and the Maserati GT4 car both have ABS on the server but not offline.

good to hear @InsaneOzzie if you need any help with your VR set up let me know.
Scott, just so you know this ^^^^^guy is the Convict or my brother from down under. An original from Club Hooligan :) He needs all the help he can get, but it's software related in his noggin :D

I've been practicing so sign me up. Probably just one race again like last week, but I'll show up and do what I can.

Man what a fun race that was last night, maybe the most fun I've ever had racing. I think I spent almost the entire 40 minutes straight with no more than 3 feet between me and Douglas or Scott. It was great hanging out with everyone.

Scott, just to give you a heads up, Douglas convinced me to run another season of the offsite GT3 championship we ran the past couple months, starting in January. I usually only have time to run one race per week, but that series is once every two weeks, so I might drop off to participating here every other week but now that I'm more comfortable with that series I shouldn't disappear entirely like I did last time. Just didn't want you to think I was backing off here permanently if my attendance slides a little bit. Thanks for hosting these races, I really enjoy them.
