REPOST:
I was talking to Jerry Schulte (yes, I know he died a few years ago) the other night after the last few weeks of somewhat contentious racing. He told me it's time for a Geezer Club reset. Jerry created this club 10 years ago to fill a need of older and or more laid-back pilots. He realized that some of the official GT racers don't have the abilities of younger drivers. Or, they were not interested in the daily races where running someone off the track, because you can, is an acceptable way to have fun. We're less serious about winning, and put having fun higher than that goal. Below are some guidelines for becoming a Geezer Club member, or a wannabe Geezer Club participant.

Geezer is someone who is 60 years old or will be 60 years old this year.

Drop the win at all cost attitude and have fun. That's why we use boost strong to help a driver recover from racing incidents. Overly aggressive driving isn't allowed.

If you must talk during a race, keep it on topic, and try not to talk just to hear yourself make noise. Joking around for a laugh is highly recommended. Be respectful of others' opinions even if they are wrong, don't argue, there's nothing more disrupting than listening to two people argue when most don't want to hear it.

After a race is finished, take a moment of silence to let the owner of the room have some time to talk with the person selecting the next race so he can start the set up for the track.

1 - If someone wants to participate in a Geezer lobby, they have to first respond to this message on the geezer thread and be accepted by the committee on a trial basis. We don't care how fast or slow you are, it's how you race that counts.

2 - Geezer Lobbies are for Geezers and invited Friends only. Friends of friends will not be automatically accepted. If you join without asking, you will need to leave, and follow rule 1 for the next event.

3 - If you are not 60 years old but would like to join us, you can be accepted on temporary bases (geezling). If you race too aggressively and the win is more important than having fun, you will likely be asked not to return.

4 - It's usual that the host posts the first 4 races. When those are complete, a participant is asked to choose a car and track till the end of the session. This way most everyone has the opportunity to choose a race they like.

5: We like to do quick races (5 to 10) laps to keep the lobby running (we are old and the time is critical) so PP races or any other race that involves testing and a long time to prepare the car can only be chosen by the lobby host that is running the race. These races will be posted in advance so we have time to prepare the cars. If you have any ideas, submit them to the host in advance and he will consider using them.

6 - If you want to host a Geezer race event, it is necessary for the host to also follow the rules as outlined.

F-ing BOOST??? Do you know how much hair I yanked from my head trying to figure out why the **** everybody was walking away from my car in your races? That rule is posted literally NOWHERE (I've looked). I've got nothing coherent left to say. Smh
The funniest part of this post is that boost would help you if you were falling towards the back... haha.

And it's been stated many times before, boost has always been a part of this group.

How not to clean your PS5... Yesterday, I started to clean the dust out of my PS5. Due to my aging clumsiness, I accidently separated a wire for the fan from the connector. All it needed was to solder the wire back on. I then decided to go to the "authorized" Sony repair shop. I was shocked when the guy told me that Sony requires $299.00 to review and fix my problem. I asked to confirm:"$299 to solder the wire". His reply was: "Yes, these are Sony's rules but it includes a thorough cleaning".
I will not bother you with the rest of the conversation, too many special characters required. I went to an electronic repair shop and got it all fixed for $25.

I ran into this problem before where our Dyson beater bar belt broke. $140 for a $5 belt.

So please be careful or less clumsy that I when cleaning your PS5. And "code of conduct" Sony.
 
That’s a bummer, and then not. Been soldering for years, I built tube amplifiers and did RC car stuff, etc. Good skill to have. A Wellar and Dremel are probably two really good investments. And fun.

Get your new GR010? Free car if you signed up for something I can’t recall.

Richard, here is the page from GT Planet explaining the setting for the Fanatec DD Extreme. These are the same as the settings for the GT DD Pro. I will find the YT video from Rory Alexander on the exact settings and post that separately. Hope this helps.

 
Hello Geezers

I hope you don’t mind me posting here, a young whippersnapper of a mere 40 years of age.
I’m part of the admin team of a race series called GTE. We’ve been going for a while now and is currently in the middle of season 6.
Our founder Carl aka Dusty Fossil aka Ol’ Spice, is a man of a certain vintage and he is looking for like minded experienced, more so in life than race necessarily, gentlemen to take part in a sister series that runs on Tuesdays. It’s an endurance series with races running around the 90 mins mark.

If any of you would be interested in taking part, you are more than welcome to join our little community via the discord link below. You will be welcomed into a group of guys (of which 95% are British, i’m one of the few bloody foreigners) who take the racing serious but keeps the banter lighthearted and puts a certain amount of pride into taking the piss.

I have the Extreme and it took me awhile to get it drivable. I can send my settings when I'm on again. I can't remember where i got the settings either.
