What wheel do you have
Sent you my settings on psn messages
I'll be doing some practice at Donington tonight if anyone wants to join in.
Schedule for tonight's racing:
7:10pm - practice lobby open
8:00pm - 10 minute warm-up session
8:10pm - 2 x 17 lap races with identical handicaps
Don't forget to check your start/wait time. Tyre wear will be set to slow and there will be no mandatory pit stop. Practice lobby will have tuning disabled this week because there's no need to adjust pit strategy.
@v8power383 are you interested in joining us this week? If so you'll need to get your FL to @POPPINFRESH1234 asap, as long as it isn't too late for him to calculate your handicap.
Try finishing one of these handicapped races in this off season first, then you can comment
To be blunt, yeah. The guys who are taking off at the green are doing 32's, your FL was a 26, so that's 6 seconds a lap mate. You gonna complain about your handicap every bloody round? It's all just meant to be a bit of fun mate, nobody else is whinging about it. It isn't just about winning, it's about all of the racing that happens before the chequered flag.
sorry guys wont be able to race tonight. Sick in the hospital bed.Hope you all have a good race!
Hope everything is ok. Get better soon. See you on track. Ant
Get better soon mate
get well soon ford

Can @Nathan Storrier @Nigel Burley get me ur FL on Catalunya before Sunday. Cheers
Hopefully I'll have my PS4 set before Sunday and wouldn't mind having a run in the V8 if there is room.
Had a ball last night the last few laps of race 1 where intense to have so many cars fighting for the same piece of tarmac intense. Race 2 had @dj2ca and myself within .6 or closer for every lap until a small mistake from dj on the second last lap at the end of the back straight letting me past unlucky buddy.
Great fun thanks heaps everyone congrats to @sandorlink-c @annewa and @arnoldwa on great pace to keep everyone at bay.
See you on track
Yeah good fun last night...race was was a case of some good battles coming through the field and a few guys falling off in front ... Had a few laps behind the fat arse of @Winchester Racing again !! Man you need to get to jenny craig ! Wasnt sure what happened with @Anthonyb and @POPPINFRESH1234 on the last lap....i got a great run out of 4 up the hill and ant got a slow run, poppin was up my tail pipe and there was a small amount of contact but not sure on who or how .....
Race 2 i was up to 7th with a great battle brewing as gaz and i ranged up on the front runers, but gaz's net decided to develop tourette's again and gave my car a detour into the T4 boonies...... happens....was good fun nonetheless....had a good battle with poppin for a few laps.....had turns 3,4, and 5 side by side with no contact.....its not that hard if you give people room.
Had a heap of fun last night. I didn't think I was gonna catch @arnold watson in the first race but got there eventually. Some really good defensive driving on your part mate, you made it really difficult to pass you, I spent quite a few laps trying to get by, by which time And had caught up to me. I think I finally got past with just one lap to go!
Second race was intense, I had @Anthonyb right on my pipe (0.5) for 16 whole laps! Great pressure Ant, that was really fun. Once again it was Arnold that I had to get by but with two laps to go I gave it too much throttle coming out of the hairpin and ended up facing the wrong way. All in all that was a brilliant race though.
Thanks everyone, looking forward to the enduro at Catalunya next week. Hopefully I don't keep spinning this time around!
Here's my shocker of a night in summary.
Race 1 - Went way too deep on the first lap at the last turn ended up losing 3 or so spots then it was all down hill from there. Got a few taps, had a few spins, went too deep into some corners, had no pace. Got literally squeezed coming into a corner and was pushed off track, lost another couple of spots (wasn't redressed but I expected that from this particular driver) ended up in last.
Race 2 - Started ok, although went too deep again and lost 5 spots ?!? Got a couple more taps, ended up retiring after abouut the 8th lap excessive 'push' tactics from a few, and a major lack of interest after falling to the rear once again.
Sorry but that was an absolute shocker from me.
