    Tack and Mod to Be announced on the 1st of may but at this time it looks like Spa 1960 unless the poll at the top of this thread changes event time to be confirmed when we know better where our drivers are from but I would think it will be late afternoon or early evening GMT

    I'm very interested but I can't commit at this time as I don't know if I'll be working that Sunday yet. Can you book me in as a possibility please?

    Thanks

    I'd like to give it a try. But it depends...

    I think the lack of response could be due to the lack of specific details. For me it depends on the time of day, what mod is run, and what track.

    I don't think I can muster a race before 8am or after 8pm my time (central USA). I am only interested in the 60's mod. And I have big reservations about the Spa track only because it is absolutely unforgiving. There is zero chance of me going around it more than 4 or 5 times without a fatal crash.

    Plus, I have yet tried to drive in the rain. Learning to be quick and consistant in dry conditions is enough of a learning curve for me at the moment. I have no idea what adding rain will do to my FPS. These are unknowns to me that make me hesitant to jump in wholeheartedly.

    I have uncertainty in simply running this sim online. I have searched several times for a 60's pick up race and have never found one with more than 1 person on track. I guess my system will do well but it's never been tested.

    But yeah, put me down as a yes... if...

    Ok as far as details go I am looking at how much intrest I have and what part of the world these players are from I am unemployed and I can race at any time so for get times and tracks for now I am after numbers of players that would like to race on the 6th of may
    I wish to hold the race at a time that suits the majority of the people that sign up

    If everyone would like a time then 20:00 GMT on the 6th May @ Spa for 1hr in the 1960

    Hi Dany,

    That time looks very positive for me (20:00 GMT) as even if I have to work that day unless something goes badly wrong I should be able to make it.

    If we are doing 60's Spa I would like to suggest we use F3's if we hope to do a 1 hour race, they are the most forgiving and accessible of the 60's series so I think we would get better numbers if that were the case.
    I've been doing some online races with servers running the F3's at Spa and even with 5 lap races the attrition rate can be quite high. I think with a longer race it is more mindset than anything else, you have to convince people to be safe before being fast.

    Having said all that I'm really looking forward to be able to run a longer race, the variable weather setup as well as tyre and fuel set to 200% sound great. I'm really hoping we can make this happen. I was racing on the 'FUNSERVER' (I think) and they had a variable weather, going from sun to cloud obscured racetrack was an amazing feeling.

    Anyway, I hope we can get some good numbers for the 6th.

    Anyone else reading this, get to Spa online and have some fun running laps and then think how much fun an hour long race could be!

    That time works for me. What server should I look for? Can I get on it now to check out how it works for me?

    Is it F3's? Haven't tried those, will need some practice. I gravitate to the F1's but if F3 is safer that may be the way to go if the race is at Spa.

    Hope a few more sign up.

    I just tried a few F3 laps. I'd like to suggest F2 instead. Less dangerous than F1 but a little more challenging and fun than F3.

    @Andy Great News see you on the 6th or in the server throwing down some practice laps
    @DJCruicky will do
    @Ricknau Look FOr A.R.I in server browser if you list servers buy name ours it number 1 at the very top slot , as damage will be on and depending on numbers I would like to think that there would be enough drivers for all 3 Groups F1 F2 & F3 to have an independent race
    at the same time but if numbers are low then I think you may have a good point F2 no point in 2/3rds running F2 and 2 guys running F1

    I will put the server and Live Timing up as Practice live timing can be seen @ www.sr4l.com and server is A.R.I
    it will be live 30 mins after this post

    Logged onto the server today. Just missed a chance to go around with other drivers. Didn't matter though that I missed the session because FFB would not work. Tried my "reset FFB" button but it did not help. Went off line, FFB worked. Went back online, no FFB.

    If I can't resolve this I won't be able to race on Sunday.

    Anybody got any ideas why my FFB doesn't work online? It's a Fanatec CSR.
