I will soooo be making a note in my diary for this one.

These cars have saved AC for me, brilliant addition to the sim and great racing.

Just need to check I can make it and then I'm well down for this one...

Epic :D

Mmm that may prove a challenge to be honest, but I've given up on the F1 watching so I've got a bit of credit left in the tank :D

Fantastic!!! I'm on EST, so that puts the races mid-afternoon for me, not something I can commit to, but I wish I could - sounds incredible!!!

Oh wow...I wish I could join in on the fun, but I'm way too occupied on Sundays. I cover my local events here and we've got a few that will clash with the times. So sad :(

This is a great thing! Sadly, however, because of the "must attend all" requirement, I can't do it. I'll be out of town on at least one of the dates.

Couldn't agree more. Never really been an AC fan myself, but these MX5s are just so much fun. :D
Too bad it's on Sundays, I'll be too busy with the R3E Club.

Our leagues are premium only, so it's basically a 10€ entry fee but you get all the other premium benefits. Setup is open and usually there will be some helpful people that share their setups. I usually end up sharing :p
