    Time for a new car. We'll be using the BMW 235i for Tuesday night races. Don't let the car fool you. It's a wolf in sheep's clothing and provides great door to door racing, but isn't too hard to drive.

    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.

    I'm new to Assetto Corsa (came from other sims) and Race Department. Are premium users the only ones allowed to race?

    Yes sir, but the cost is soooooooooo cheap. I've been here for almost 8 yrs., but didn't do the premium until March of 2017 and now I regret I didn't do it 7 yrs ago.

    I was going to suggest that Bobby hand out all pink cars for April Fool's Day ... but I don't think there is a way to do that. Same-same with changing all the drivers names in the flags over their cars to read Papa John's, Pizza Hut or Domino's.

    Thanks for letting a newby in. I just recently built my first "home built" pc.
    I5 8400/16 GB of 2666 ram/Evga Gtx 1060 6Gb SC. I'm getting crazy frame rates with it.

    Plus one there. I waited a couple years before getting the premium membership and wish I hadn't waited so long. The racing is good here, it's a real club atmosphere. I guess RD is paying for the tires and gas. I know I ain't.;)

    Quick question to anyone who knows. I'm using Crew Chief, Helicorsa and my own senses for situational awareness on track. Will the Crew Chief app interfere with Teamspeak if some one calls out a pass? Also being first time I am racing in this group, any pointers for the newby? Im trying to make this easy on everybody!!!!
