    Hey my skin of the first VW scirocco season in foreground!! Cool :D

    Could you put some pictures of cut rules on this track plz! Like that all drivers are aware about cut rules here!
  3. Aaron Channer Licensed Driver

    As it happens, there will be an amendment to the general track boundary rules prior to this round.

    Stick to: at least 2 wheels within the white lines.

    I'll do the official amendment tonight or tomorrow.

    Well, had my first laps yesterday. This is a fun car, I like how the rear end starts to slide a bit when entering a corner, and then just grips to the track when you accelerate a bit more. But too much accelerator and it will just go forward. Tricky. :) Never really like FWD cars, but this one is fun.

    Just wondering how fast people can go on this track, my best is 1:54:high, which I'm sure is quite bad. I will just drive around hopelessly for 25 minutes.:D
  7. Neil Rocks Licensed Driver

    My best was a 1:54.1, so you can expect the pole position time to be a 1:33.000 ;)
  8. Nicolas Béver Licensed Driver

    5 days left before the first race!!!
    I can't wait to do this championship!!
    I hope all of you are excited like me and you are ready for the fight!!! :mad: :p :D

    I just hope myself and Michael get to race, not to say I want absences, but the pair of us have done some serious practice over the past two weeks for this event and were really looking forward to the League.

    Watkins especially is a special place for me, one of the greatest race tracks there is and a place where no matter what the car I'm in, it always enjoyable.
  10. Aaron Channer Licensed Driver

    You know what it's like mate, there's usually always a few no-shows. And after 2 no-shows without report, it's removal from the league.
  11. Geoffrey Fournier Licensed Driver

    Nicolas what is your best times?
  12. Nicolas Béver Licensed Driver

    Haha Geo... it's a nice joke :D
    Nice try ^^
  13. Sebastien Foucart Licensed Driver

    Best time its 1.54.9 for Nico :p
  14. Nick Ansell Licensed Driver

    Would expect best qualifying times will be mid to high 1:51.
    Lap times will be in the 1:53's .

    Shame I'll most likely not get the chance to race. (Last on the reserves list :().
  15. Aelcio Junior Licensed Driver

    I competed on this track some months ago, in a brazilian virtual league and my result was not good.
    I hope a hard race again, mainly because i saw some guys doing 1.52.low...
    I am doing between 1.52.6 and 1.52.9...
    I need Luck!! kakak

    Race server is open, named 'simracingpro.com VWC R'.
    I'll leave the practice server (simracingpro.com VWC P) open, for reserves who are waiting. I'll let you know a few minutes prior to quali, if any spaces are available.

    Hi Aaron,
    So reserves should connect to the practice server and wait for a message on whether we are allowed to race or not?
  20. Aaron Channer Licensed Driver

    Yes Nick, I'll send out a message on the server.
