    Livery Regulations
    The GTSport Type 1 door Board.
    The car must have one main sponsor.
    No foul language, pornographic material, and/or political themes.

    The Track ;
    Tarmac & Kerbs are the track, two wheels must always be on the track (tarmac & kerbs) at all times This is based on using the games interpretation of track limits.
    Anyone found continually exceeding the track limits will receive a penalty.

    In Qualifying ;
    Just like in real life racing, do not obstruct other drivers who are on a fast qualifying lap.
    Please move off the racing line or off track.
    Do not park on track while qualifying is still in progress.


    In the Race ;
    Avoid contact with other cars where possible.
    If you make contact with another car & either make them lose control / leave the track / spin, you must wait as soon as possible in a safe place off the racing line, until they regain their place in front of you.
    If another car is ahead & on the racing line when braking into a corner, you must back out of any manoeuvre to avoid contact or spinning the other car around.
    Continual contact / rubbing the car in front is not acceptable
    Weaving to avoid slipstreaming / towing the car behind is not acceptable – you can move once.
    If you leave the track, care must be taken to safely re-join without hindering other drivers.
    Be prepared to leave racing room for cars that are along side or 'overlapping' you
    The race is not won in the first corner – be patient on the first few corners.
    If you lose control & crash, delaying or taking out other drivers you must wait until they regain control & join the track in front of you.
    Three words to think about - Patient, Courteous, Awareness.


    Incidents during a race ;
    If you feel you were involved in a race incident & wish to complain / report another driver, please save the replay & PM the Race Organiser or Race Admin with details of the Race / Lap / drivers involved etc.

    The Race Admin team will quickly act upon this and issue penalties if necessary.

    Yep, definitely up for some of that. Although, I'll be missing the final round. ( Unless the house we're staying in has a Playstation! )

    After the shakedown the other night with at least eleven on track all in the same cars this is going to create some fantastic racing
    and as we always keep it clean overtaking it will come down to absolute skill or somebody making a slight mistake.....CANT WAIT !!!

    Might be up for this. Getting back into GTS after pretty much a 2 year break.

    Will try and join you tomorrow to see what kind of pace I have as yet to race online. Still only doing the missions :scared:

    He actually sent me one and I found you through his FL so that’s all good.

    gonna assume most people will be running a wheel, I have one but it’s been in the garage for 2years so it’s stuck behind a load of rubbish. Will try and get it ready for later but will probably be running a pad.

    Just got my wheel out the garage, doesn’t look great!

    Will test when I get home from work, hopefully it works tho but I’ll also be running a old firmware as I don’t have a laptop/pc.

    Judging from the comedy gold that ensued last week with Zebaldus's headphones, I wouldn't hold out much hope of us being any help with any technical issues :)

    Cheers guys.

    probably doesn’t seem like it but definitely getting better.

    Can’t believe how much I struggled at the beginning, honestly I’m better than that, not quite the top guys level but I was a little embarrassed.

    probably not the best idea to jump straight into a lobby but it’s just a case of getting back into the swing of things, I’ll get more practice in so hopefully I’ll start getting back to my previous level.

    @priesty_lfc thanks for joining and I agree with what Jason has already said.

    We have had many a driver who has joined us and not been able to stay with the faster lads, that includes me, but they have stuck at it and
    have gained so much speed so it will come in time, just stick with us as much as you can we will always try and help. See you on Sunday.

    Yeah it’s fine, like I said I felt like I was improving each race and even managed a 41 flat which is reasonably fast considering. Just a case of nailing the consistency and I’ll be there.

    To think I looked at another series first off with a much more powerful car - That would have been a disaster!

    Mazda is actually pretty nice to drive when you hook it up.

    I’ll look out for your lobby tonight as hopefully I can get on.
