That's is based on Abdul's idea from here. I will update the first post with everyone's laptimes. Round 1 closes on Sunday:) The server is set with 7hours of qualies.

Server name: RACEDEPARTMENT SNSC
Password: usual club password.

Cars: Escort V8 Challenge 2009
Track: Fuji 1970[download]
Weather: Damped track

Basic rules:
  • Whoever is the fastest at the end of the week picks a car to run for the following week
  • Whoever finishes last picks the track for the following week.
  • The 10th fastest decides the weather (dy, 10% rain, 30% rain ,etc...)
  • The same person can't pick the track/car 3 weeks in a row. In the case that occurs, the 2nd line will choose the mod
  • Tracks and mods have to be either game default or located in RD's download section

Nope... Dragos decides on the car. I really like the fact that so far "unusual" cars have been picked.

You don't have to sign up, you just have to race on the server with the car and track for that week, and your laptimes will automatically be stored.
But the winner of last week still has to choose a car so the server is not yet up.

This is the perfect chance to practice wet driving for someone like me, who is totally pathetic at it.

I like the imagination driving the new "Escort V8" there. A handfull funny car with great sounds... (just my wish)

Looks like wishes come true

Well the first thing that popped in my head was either the F3000 or the Koenigsegg Production car. I know you're thinking "The Kegg??? Are you CRAZY?!?" And the answer is yes. But I just get a huge sim racing boner everytime I drive that thing, and the long straight at Fuji makes me happy. BUT I had not considered the Escort Mod, and I must admit it is a better choice and truly works well with the track. SO Escort V8 mod it is!

See you guys on track!
