    Often described as a "rookies" car and indeed it is an excellent car to learn your trade in, but I can assure you, because it is such a great car, many experienced sim racers, will often enter events that use this car. The experienced will be fighting for a Podium, the less experienced will be having fun mid-pack and the rookies will be having fun at the rear, my point being? It makes no difference, so do not be shy, ask as many questions as you wish (see my third post) Just come along and have some fun!! you will for sure, learn how to be a better driver.

    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 love this car! I've always contended that the Mazda MX-5 is an MGB built correctly!

    I think I can dodder around Imola for a couple laps anyoldways. Put me down for one in a nice British Racing Green ... with teeth.

    BTW ... have all the Mazda Cup fans seen these hot new skins (HERE) yet?

    One little advice: the quickest way around with this car is to trailbrake into the corners, be very gentle with the brakes though!
    Let the rear come around and then half-throttle and bit of counter steering from the apex onto the straights.
    You need to scrub the fronts at corner entry and drift at the exit.
    That way you can go around most corners on a tighter and shorter line. Just dare to try it :)
    That's why the default setup is so slippery and lacks camber.


    Had to learn it the long way, thought I'd share it here :)
