I'll say yes but if full give my place away - not 100% sure i'll make it.

Agree with Mr White about full damage. All for realism but finding it only takes the slightest knock to seriously affect performance.

Certainly can Burton, I'll get a thread up for an event this Saturday. I may not be able to host the room myself, but anyone can.

On a slightly broader point, I think we have 3 or 4 U.S based guys, if we could get another 4 we could also have US specific races nights or a league.

I know KellyMk was possibly interested in some oval racing.

Sorry about the lag folks. I jumped out to see if I could fix it and I didn't want to ruin anyone's race. I wasn't seeing any lag on my screen so I couldn't tell.

You lagged onto my roof at one point. At some points, ypu would lag from 1 second behind me to nearly 5 seconds up the road

PlayStation was being a pain and went to a black screen before showing an error message. Second time its happened since I've got the game. Was having a good little battle with Fish though

Sorry to anyone I hit in the race :laugh: My connection is awful and just kept seeing cars running wide into the gravel, was hard to tell which ones had and hadn't gone off. Connection on my end got real bad so got disconnected after qualifying:/
Sort of expected anyway because I got a down speed of 3 MB/s and up speed of 0.4 MB/s

Nethertheless it was fun racing!

What sort of connection do you get on a speed test? When i saw you on track you didn't seem to be erratically moving about on my screen.


Was good racing overall, they are fun cars, both of them. The Gulfs are maybe that perfect balance of speed and grip for fun racing.

Had a little play with the replays... whilst there are plenty of lovely camera angles the replays lack character, I couldn't see a way to overlay a HUD, switch to other cars views or display people's names?

The helmet cam is pretty special though.

Absolutely fantastic racing. Had a lot of fun in both races but the gulfs are more fun in my opinion. Couldn't be happier with my drive from 5th to 1st though.

First race

Never raced at zolder and done about 5 laps in a rookie so expected the
Worse and it delivered
Well off the pace, dunno were you guys get your speed from, evem on a sstraight
People were flying up towards me.
I couldnt change my fuel etc in garage beforehand so maybes this had a part to play?

Second race

Was looking forward to this one, love the gulfs, probably fave car on the game, not to keen
On imola but least i knee the track.
Qualified 6th i think maybes 5th but again over 3 seconds off of pole position so still some
Work to be done.

Incident at turn 1 and people seemed to brake a bit too early which surprised me and i tapped
Someone and went off.
Managed to move up a few places and was doing ok but that damn chicane gets me every time
Lol.

Was doing ok in race but made one or two little mistakes that cost me, decided to quit out as from
The start of the race i had no hud whatsoever.
Didnt want to risk and accident as i had no track map or anything, also my girlfriend was upstairs
Wanting sex so it was a no brainer.

Cheers guys and happy racing :)

Well those races did go better than expected, loads of fun battling with fish, but I think with using the pad and until I purchase a replacement wheel I'll be using stability control those chicanes where killing me, the upcoming league is going to be quite special  :113:  Awesome racing from the whole field.

only managed to get in to race number 2 as I couldn't get online for the first race, my apologies to the person I tapped in race 2
at the first corner I braked a little to late, I did have a good start jumped from 7th I think to 3rd but then crashed at the first corner
but had a good race first time on that track as well so I have loads of room for improvement.

ps: whens the next event with you guys?
