A message to all Drivers

If you run off track, you have to check and 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 and do not race on your out lap. Let other drivers by in qualifying.
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. Remember, you've made the mistake by going off so let them by cleanly.


Golden Rule
  1. Be 100% sure it's not your fault and just carry on like nothing happened and take the risk of being banned for 30 days.
  2. Play on the safe side and wait for the affected drivers, knowing 100% sure you will not get a ban.
Track limits
  1. No more than 2 wheels over the white/yellow line without a complete lift of the gas please if it is safe to do so.
    You will be penalized if you break our rules
Note: Please use your full real name in teamspeak. Not doing so may result in you being kicked from the server if an admin cannot identify you as a premium member.

High speed junkies should get their fix covered with this combination :O_o:.
You better make the start procedure clear in writing otherwise it can be a mess on this track.
Standing start on this track is performed from pit lane ( no lights ) listening to the horn is essential..

It's a shame we can't make the drivers run across the track and jump into their cars, like the RL race.
Maybe we could run across our room and jump into our rig? ;) :roflmao:

So are you gonna sign up buddy?

Sign me up please, Denis

Idea... given the type of car and circuit, don't you think could be better just one 50 min. race?

Welcome guys. :)

@andrea_274 I hear you buddy and I did think about it, but tbh I prefer 2 x 25. It's club racing and this way, if you have a problem in R1, you get a second chance to race. :)

If it become apparent the the majority want 1 x 50, then I will change it. So if you have a preference guys, you may tag me in this thread, just to let me know. I would prefer NOT to have a major discussion about it taking over the thread though. If it is close, I will look into posting a poll in the OP. :)

Takes some concentration, a little error results in meeting the scenery at speed.
All the best combos kinda get your attention I reckon. I actually think the 917K is easier to drive than I was expecting. 200 mph Porsche from the 70s? I expected it to chew me up and spit me out, but seems driveable to me?

Yes always thought this about this RF2 917K Mod : to much grip--way to much.
The rfactor version you almost need a special license to drive :O_o:
