    The GT4 are back to teach you the basics of driving like a champ!
    Join us for a night of fun and banter!

    Wait? What is this?

    For this event you need absolutely nothing special. A copy of Assetto Corsa, keyboard, console controller, or steering wheel it's all fine. Today we are going to focus on getting you on the online track (for the first time) and giving you a great experience and making you a better driver.

    Make sure to be on time for the extended practice session and have teamspeak installed and be with us for the full length of the event. This is the longest session of almost an hour to get familiar with the car and the track. That's right, you don't need to practice offline first. You can come by fully unprepared

    After practice we move to qualification to decide the racing order and do a short fun race of only 30 minutes so everybody can return to their wives, girlfriends, mom in time.

    Who can join?
    All premium members using their full Real Name in the forum, race servers and teamspeak can sign up for this event and we have unlimited slots available so make sure to bring a friend. Sign up below and make sure to tag fellow community members who you think are up for a challenge!

    Due to the fact of the Maserati being a bit quicker with ABS and TC available, we decided to give you a passenger of 75kg from now on.
    Give the Porsche some love :inlove:

    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.

    Right, forgot about that.

    Why use the GP chicane & not the GT one?

    GT was used the last time :p
    I think at least...
    But also because the GT is more fun on hotlaps but experience tells the story of the GT chicane being dangerous with less experienced drivers. You only brake a little bit and if you touch or go side by side one or both will probably crash.
    With the gp one you really have to brake, everything is slower and there's more room for errors :)

    But mainly because gt was used the last time :D

    Personally I think the GP chicane is more likely to be blocked by a spinning car without anyone around & end up with a big pileup because there's nothing you can do about it, but your decision :p

    Yes please, car to be decided - any idea how much 75kg will add to lap time? :)

    I pushed both cars for an hour and was about 0.7s quicker with the maserati!
    75kg dropped me down about 0.5-1.0s as it took some time getting used to it.

    It is not, I find the track a chore so it'd have to be an exeptional experience - I'll run some test laps before making a decision.
