    Hey guys. Sadly looks like I'm going to have to miss tonight... :(
    Wife has been called into work so I have to be available to look after the young one.

    Was meant to have the whole day to myself, so to say I'm annoyed is an understatement. :p

    Hey all,

    This is a setup I worked on tonight. I am still learning rFactor 2 but I think this seems to work well.

    It is strictly for qualifying / hotlapping (I didn't have time to work on a race setup). TC is off as I prefer to run without it so you may want to enable it, although, I think with the diff settings and rear suspension setup, it feels pretty planted if you're smooth with the throttle. Diff may need 5% more on power for slightly better traction but it still feels quite good at 30%.

    I have 6 hours to get some sleep before this so I really hope I can make it!

    Regretfully I have to withdraw. Jumped on the rig after many dormant weeks only to discover Ive got no accelerator pedal, thought it was wiring at 1st but everything seems to be wired correctly yet I have zero signal from the pot. I'll keep messing with it, hopefully I can resolve it before kickoff, if not, y'all have a good one for Nick. R.I.P mate.

    Only had 1 race, but it was quite superb battling an discipline. Thank you to the guys from P4-8, it was very close but respectful, it was all that racing is about.

    Congrats to Tony for winning that race!

    That was a nice event, great to see so many show up! A bit too hardcore for me, but Nick would have loved it! Sure he would have asked for one full race with full damage… and no safety cars, no restarts! :D

    Can't wait to check out the replay from both races. There were some absolutely sensational battles!

    Feel for those affected by issues at the start, just one of those things I suppose :/

    Very strange thing happened to me when I flipped in the air both side monitors turned black couldn't see anything, I thought I lost a wheel but that wasn't the case, I couldn't continue with just one screen since I have very low FOV couldn't see my wheels and my car was busted.:(

    Shame I really wanted to do some racing with you guys. Maybe next time.;)

    Thank you for organizing this awesome event.
    Cheers

    min on softs also. I think my worst tyre (front left) was down to 69 i think by the end of race 2. Somewhere in the 60's anyway.

    I did a few tests with the different tyres and I found tyre wear to not be very different on mediums and hards, just slightly slower laptimes so it was not worth using them.

    It also may be something in your setup that was chewing through the tyres, or driving style. I was lifting slightly at both copse and Abbey to try and save tyre through the race.
