    Important, please read:
    With limited space we are asking everyone to work together to allow others to take part. Here are a few things you can do to help us:
    • If you were in the last academy, please do not sign up for this one unless spots are available the day of the academy.
    • Make sure you have the DLC for this event.
    • If you sign up, please show up. If you can't make it, we expect you to sign out no later than 1 hour before the academy starts to make room for others. Failure to do so will make you ineligible for the next Academy.
    • Read the Club Rules and make sure you have your real name showing up in game and on teamspeak.
    • Password for the Academy server will be given out on teamspeak. Please be sure to be on time so we can go forward in a timely manner.
    • If you are using VR, please have your settings and buttons mapped prior to the Academy. This will save everyone time so we can get down to business......Racing.
    • Make sure to have these apps on your screen if possible:
    1. Tyre App
    2. Helicorsa 0.7b Download
    3. Real Time
    4. Track Map
    5. Corner Names
    6. Use F11 and have your Virtual Mirror on. If using VR please disregard.
    • Have fun:)
    Our Format will be as follows:

    Introduction
    • Question and answer session regarding Teamspeak and Asseto Corsa Game Settings. Please no wheel settings questions as that would eat up a lot of time and there are plenty of tutorials on the internet for this.
    • Do a few laps following Jeremy. Please no passing. That will happen later:)
    • Driving lines brief synopsis and ride along.
    • Class goes out to drive in 5-10 second intervals using default setup. Q&A afterwards.
    • Setup basics. Go over the order in which we start dialing it in ie Tires first and why
    • Start building a setup
    • Class goes back out to try the new settings to see how it feels. Q&A afterwards.
    • Repeat setup and tweaking.
    • Class goes out for 10 minute race.
    • Final Q & A. Class dismissed.
    End of Session

    Hey @Bobby Pennington, @Brewer and @Celtic Pharaoh this looks like a good time! Hope you don't mind if I join you guys to get back into driving after a 4 month layoff. This looks like the perfect opportunity and I could use some great tips!! Have hardly touched the wheel and pedals but looking forward to it.
