    I'll see if I can jump in, I think there is a clash with the NASCAR race today but I'll try both at the same time.

    Nuts. Seriously considering changing it for later dates. To something more friendly for everyone. I need more brain power to figure it out.

    But at least this way I get some practice before facing off against Fudsy. :D

    Sounds like a lot of fun and a great idea! Unfortunately the time won't work for me. I'm usually only available in the evenings central time.

    Yes.

    Lobby ID will be posted at 11:30 Pacific (approx 45 min from now). Racing will start at 12. Races repeat over and over. It's open house/drop in style.

    Plan to keep it open for one hour. :)

    I'll join in a minute, just have to finish cutting up a video in ShareFactory (I know you can save them, but I also know I would never find it again).

    Probably because It's set to friends only. Sorry. Any chance you can send me a friend request?

    Lobby is now closed.

    That was so much fun. Thanks for coming.

    Thanks for posting.

    The Kart race that starts around 6:40 is a perfect example of how I pictured these races. The Swift races were super fun too. Nice match suit & car. :tup:

    Loads of fun. Good group. Quick learners.

    You'll never get a time that works for all with GTP membership spread across so many timezones. Don't fret it, just pick a time that's not too inconvenient for you and is accessible for as many as possible.

    If it works out that I can come that's a bonus

    Yeah, those of us down here will always be at severe odds time wise with the EMEA folks. I got so excited by the idea when I discovered the post, but definitely not a good time. Might have to see about a way to host things Sunday evening my time one week if I think of a good event.

    The FIA races loading up Saturday nights have pushed lots of the fun lobby stuff I would like to try to our monday morning.:grumpy:

    Videos look great though, something to definitely try again.:tup:

    Looking at the video, it might pay to experiment with the rolling start spacing, maybe squeeze the pack up a bit tighter. Keirin is traditionally a tightly packed accident looking for a turn to happen on...

    We switched to grid starts after a few races. That worked much better.

    The Karts worked well, potential for lots of accidents. N100 class is fun too, can bump a lot more.

    The Super Formulas could use a larger track. I think BB Raceway (either direction) would be a better venue for cars above N100.

    I really liked this format and it was very easy to host. I reused the 1 race setting I had saved. We did roughly around 8 races in 40 minutes. So 5 minutes per race. Not only are the races fast paced, the time between is too. :tup:

    Looking forward to an opportunity to join in, should time zones permit.
