This week something a little different.

Some races with everyone in the same car (not literally, we will have a car each :think: ) I shall set a car each week that is available from the Dealerships and one that isnt loads and loads of cash so noone will have an excuse not to join in :D
Then to follow this up a few Shuffle races, and I think we have to have another NASCAR race. :1thumbup:

The car that everyone will be using is a Acura NSX '91 you can do anything you like to it (but NOT race modifying)but the PP limit will be set at 450pp and Tyres will be a MAX of Sports Soft.




IF YOU INTEND TO TURN UP FOR THIS CAN YOU PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME BELOW :1thumbup:

Put me down as a provisional. Not quite sure what we are doing this weekend. The other half wants to go to the cinema, we've been trying to get there for the last couple of weekends but with one thing or another haven't quite made it!

The tracks that will be used are the following ....

Deep Forest REV 6 laps
Nurburgring GP/F 4 laps
Tsukuba 10 laps
Rome REV 6 laps
Nordschleife 1 lap

Each race should last approx 10 minutes.

Then a 30 lap NASCAR race at Daytona (approx 20ish minutes )

and with whatever time is left some Shuffles at random tracks.

I shall aim to get my lobby setup at 9 and want to get the racing started by 9:30.

I want to try and get away from spending too much time tinkering between races as sometimes its a 5 minute race followed by 20 minutes of messing with settings for another 5 minute race. So, you will get 10 minutes between each race to do whatever, eat/drink/piss etc. :D

Less messing and more racing sounds good to me.

Also if you haven't installed it yet be aware that you will possibly have a few updates to do.

I've installed the game on release day, but not any updates after that. So I'll be downloading those when I get home.

I could use a car mate if you can spare one. I have got 2 or 3 crappy ones if my memory serves me right ;)
Thanks in advance. See you in a bit.

Just sent you a nice green one as I saw you only have 10 cars and about 40k credits.

Ive upgraded it and it should be pretty much ready to race as it is.

Good fun yet again tonight, had a grid of 8 which was good to see.

Was a shame a couple of people had issues and kept dropping out.

I will get something else set up for next week as soon as, probably along the same lines as tonight

Some good races tonight. Glad I picked up a copy. Shame my router decided to die during the Nascar race.

Thanks again for the cars chaps, I'll return the favor asap.

Thanks all, excellent night bar the couple of drop outs that occurred to Olli and Spruijt - speaking of which, that's one fast Dutchman!

Big thanks to Mick for keeping us organised. :0)
