Notices:
● Rules & regulations:
Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.

● No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.

● Lobby settings: If you are unsure about the rest of the lobby settings that will be used, look here.

● Save your replay: As a means of helping the stewards with any enquiries, all drivers are required to save their race replays and keep it stored for at least one week after the race has taken place. If you are involved in an incident or see something during the race that you feel needs to be investigated, you are free to make a stewards enquiry - however if enquiries are submitted without replay or race footage available, it is likely we can't do anything.

Cold cold tyres, early morning races and the tyres are a bit like me cannot wake up!

It is tricky what tyre pressures have you guys tried?

It's nice of the two wheel companies that they are making bad wheels so more people are having bad races giving me and my trusty controller more of a chance. I managed a low 2:08 in TT but am capable of much better.

Bit of a stab in the dark tonight which means will see this race a test.
Not much practice and not spent time tinkering with set ups , only just starting to learn about them so I'm able to change the car settings and knowing what it will do to the car.
So much to learn and do with the car settings it's gonna take time,
Most this season will be a learning curb for me.

The alien for now has gone.

more of a time issue this week, the 1st race has crept up so quick and what little testing I had done I wasted on trying different wheel settings.

even got to estimate the fuel for the race later.

Drivers and teams are placed in the championship.
I'm going to try this mode one time and if it isn't working I will restart the lobby.

The benefit of this mode is that you don't have to pick your car and livery and for me that all the invites are automatically send.
