Come one, come all. This is a tribute event for our good mate Nick Milton. We have chosen a combo I am sure he would approve of !! Classic F1 car at a proper F1 track. Always the tougher the better for Nick.


Join us to remember our mad mate from Blighty. By way of reminder, here's a couple of Nick's classic comments:

"Seb giving that big girl Hamilton a touch up with his car, that made me laugh"

"Ask anyone here, i am the slowest, no exceptions, I've no idea how to make up 5 seconds, after two years, its got me beat, in the last few months , i have got a little quicker, but never going to win anything, i dont do every race, but i ll be battling tonight at back of grid, and ill enjoy it. Just jump in and join us at the rear, leave the others to fight at the front, they're not important, we are :)"

"Agree to disagree. But if they make a damage multiplier use it, why turn it off, anyway, I'm done it's not an issue and I'm certainly not here to argue, shame we don't live closer, i would then, always better face to face."

For sure he would have loved the combo, but he would also have asked for full race length and full damage on!! :D A true fighter. For sure we'll miss him.

Count me in please.

Yeah we know and considered it but the feedback we have received was it’s too tough under those conditions to have a decent amount finish and enjoy themselves.

For sure! I forgot to mention you and Tony made a wise choice! It will already be difficult enough like that for me. ;)
Just can't help remembering how Nick would go for the slightest hole to pass you, even if he was slower overall... Same for full length/full damage: at no point he was wondering if he would be able to hold it! :D

Sign me up. RIP Nick. Only chatted to him a couple of times, and shared a few setups with him. Sad to lose a fellow Sim racer.

I agree with nick.. full damage ;)

I like damage too Simon. It helps if you aren’t quite there but you are clean but we have a large variance in experience and particularly on this occasion we want it to be a pleasure, not pain ( even though our pommy mate would have wanted it!!)
We reserve 100% for leagues when everyone puts in the laps to grab a good hold of the car we race.

May have used the wrong emoticon. Tongue was firmly in cheek in that comment.:D totally agree on low damage for club races
