Slight change of plan. Everyone who's expressed interest is on the list. Faffing about with entry/TBC/reserve lists is a ballache. If anyone can't make it, I'll offer spaces to reserves.

Cheers, mate. As above, we've hit 16 drivers. So, I'll stick you on the reserve list for the time being. Should anyone have to drop out (someone always needs to drop out) you get first dibs on the free grid slot.

Livery progress:

Need to work on consistency and keeping the Cayman on track, but first laps are encouraging:

Apparently I have a lot of work to do on my livery . .

Sure thanks! Don't mind my current ratings (3K DR, 60 SR) I'm trying to get matched with my kid (E/B) :)
I'm usually a pramateur :crazy:

Ah, no worries mate. Maybe I'll have to have some sort of Pro-am decal for you and @HammyMansell

Strange, no notification from gtp on the tag. Haven't seen this at all
Well, I can't participate anyway :(
I hope you have fun!!

That's very odd. Going to have a Monza/Lambo practice lobby open in a few mins, if you want in, by the way.

Yes @Bivittavus88 I'll be there mate on the 15th!! I'm firmly back to A/S rating now....

By the way I had an impacted wisdom tooth pulled yesterday, face, jaw, mouth all hurts like hell, so no more Dailies for me this week, and next week's look a bit iffy also. I should be an A/Ser come race day, for if it changes anything. But Pro/Am sounds fun! ;)

Back in with the reprobates, eh? Noice!!

Aw, mate. That sucks. My housemate had one on each side pulled in October. He looked, and sounded, like he'd been jumped. It's grim.

If you're taking ibuprofen, make sure sure it's ibuprofen lysine. If you're not, vodka :cheers:

Yeah mate it's pretty crappy, but the recovery is fastish at least, the worst bit is being starving hungry, mashed banana isn't a belly filler! :( I'm on ibuprofen, paracetamol if the pain is worse, and antibiotics to avoid infection, talk about being drugged up!

And yes, always a reprobate me! Looking forward to the race! :D

Going to have to postpone tonights practice lobby. For the second time in as many months, there's a fallen tree on the road into town. Detour will take about 25/30 mins.

I'll be jumping on as soon as I get in.

@Bivittavus88 Just working on my cars design now. Just a heads up that I won't be able to use the standard GT Sport number boards as it doesn't display triple digit numbers when they start with zeros.

I've tried to create a copy of the #4 version board using the default graphics so at least I don't stand out too much.

If you'd like I can post a picture of the board i created so you can approve or suggest edits before race day.

No worries, mate. As long as it's close, it's all good.

How long do you think the race will last?

@Bivittavus88 Interested but cannot confirm entry, 80% chance I can race. Put me on the reserve list, will let you know when I 100% know if I can make it. Seems like a really fun event, Brands Hatch is one of my favorite circuits in the game!

Sadly, I have to cancel this event. There's about an 80% chance I'll be in Kent that weekend. But, I won't know 100% until Friday morning. So, rather than have to cancel with 48hrs notice, I'll do it now. Hopefully I'll figure out another weekend to host it.

Thanks for the advanced warning. I'll still be interested in future as long as I can make the new date/time.

No worries @Bivittavus88, and yeah I hope we can run it some time soon......

Not sure if mooted, or mentioned before, but couldn't the 300km race be a 9th race to end the Friday night bi-weekly races, with double points, something like that mate?

But whatever, it'll be fun when we do it! ;)
