    Come on guys and gals, get yourselves signed up! :thumbsup: This is your chance to show a certain brand how it's done... no favourites, no dominance, no silly penalties! Just a field full of equally brutal screaming V10s vying for a win determined by the best driver on the day! What's not to like? :cool:

    If you are on the fence to do a 90 minute race, all I have to say is... Try it I think you will like it. So much good racing and with pit strategy and the inevitable on/off/on track excursions you never know where you will wind up. Good fun to be had.

    Would love to come and play but I have two major problems right now...

    1.) Both my Fanatec rims are screwed... BMW rim has a broken pin and, judging by the F1 rim, the wiring inside wasn't performed too well when originally put together at the factory, meaning its shorting out and needs rewiring and new sheaths applied.

    2.) It's on a Sunday night, but for me it's Monday morning and I have work...

    I hope to catch the stream at some point though as it sounds like a lot of fun!

    Haha, listen to you lightweights that actually need sleep! :p We'll be all done by 21:20 UTC which isn't that late. If needed, just cancel Glastonbury and pull a sicky from work, you won't regret it! :D

    Lol
    Ross, I should have added that 9.20 UTC for me will be 05.20 in the morning....
    I'd need to get up at 3am to join you guys, which I'm not adverse to do of course...
    Booking a day off work could still be done, but point 1 of my 'excuse' still stands unfortunately... :(:cry:

    What with the ongoing shoulder problem and now the addition of a crock back, I've only managed a handful of laps in any one session for the last 6 weeks. :( So nearly threw my hat in last night, as Macau is always so entertaining but managed to dose myself into dreamland and miss the start. :rolleyes: Gonna try to up my endurance but 90 mins by Sunday may be a tad optimistic. Not driven the FX17 for a while either, with it being so unforgiving and intense I'm not sure I would be anything other than a moving chicane for the rest of the field.
    Hope very much to get back to some racing asap.
    Have fun gents, will be watching at least.

    I had a similar issue and was able to get it corrected. Maybe this would help.

    I wish RD had their races a bit later. Somewhere around 11pm GMT. Maybe some day when there's enough interest in such time slot...

    When they say "Let's go racing" = :D
    When they say "It's Paul Ricard in all it's flatness" = :mad:

    Well, there are three R3E events every week which aren't at Paul Ricard...

    I've actually had some of my best races at PR on ACC, would love to get in on this as sounds like a lot of fun.
    Unfortunately I dont think I'm skilled enough to have my wheel repaired in time for it.
    (E.g. I'm not sure my soldering iron even has a thin enough tip for such intricate work...)

    Just did some shake down laps on server. All looks good on the server. Been spending some good time with this car and man is it fun to drive. Would love to have a full season in it. Hope all have patience with each other at the start Sunday this could be a great race. Good luck all. See all on track
