    I say just race. If it rains it rains, and I'm sure there will be at least 1 or 2 people on your pace level :)

    Just slow down fella, seriously. No one can maintain their dry track speed when it's streaming with water, you just have to drive appropriately for the level of grip available. The head banging icon is a good message; he wouldn't be so angry if he didn't keep banging his head, and you would probably find that your car could be controlled okay if you slowed down a bit.

    If nothing else, you'll have me to keep you company, because I drive very slowly anyway.

    Cheers, Zo.

    In heavy rain I normally shift the car into 6th gear to keep the revs low and take my time going round. That's normally easier/quicker than occasionally trying to go fast and spinning out.

    Precisely this. Thankfully the Zytek is low powered, naturally aspirated and has a lot of downforce, so driving in the rain shouldn't be too difficult. I'm yet to give it a whirl in the rain, but I am sure that it won't be too bad.

    As for not having anybody around you if it does rain, we came from Really Rubbish Racing for a reason. ;)

    There's only a low chance of it raining anyway since the race starts dry, so you shouldn't worry about it too much.

    Don Patch can't take part (hasn't unlocked the car) so that leaves room for @Brutaka to join.

    Just so everything is clear:

    It will be a Fixed-Host lobby. If people are having connection issues then I will re-open it as a non-Fixed lobby.

    If you are not in the lobby at 19.55 then your place may be taken by a reserve driver.

    There'll be no text chat while the race is in progress.

    The race will be a standing start.

    Standard driving etiquette rules apply; don't cut corners and if you knock somebody off the track slow down and let them re-pass.

    Just wondering how much of a kicking I'm letting myself in for tonight, since I imagine that most people who take part in something like this are pretty serious. I'm lucky if I get into the 1:49s, how are you chaps doing?

    Cheers, Zo.

    51s on RH for me; I don't expect to win since @FutureF1 and @rcb929 are present but if I have a clean race and some battles I'm happy with wherever I finish :)

    @PJTierney, I assume we have to use both compound tires unless it rains?

    Yup, can't do the entire race on RM.

    The chance of rain is quite low; I expect it to be cloudy at most.

    Phew! I suddenly broke into a cold sweat when it dawned on me I haven't a clue how quick any of you guys are, and I might spend an hour getting lapped.

    Cheers, Zo.

    I won't be lapping you haha. I know a few are doing 1:50's but nothing much more substantial and I know it's probably not their consistent race pace as my times tend to be consistent.

    I'll drink to that (but not before the race, or else I'd just be a damn nuisance) :)

    Cheers, Zo.

    Well, that went crap. I get disconnected after not even 1 minute in the room (after which I then turn off and on my router) , then I got stuck on the screen when I tried to enter for qualifying and then I get disconnected mid session.

    *sigh* That was a waste, really looked forward to an organized race and then all that happens.

    Couldn't do it. Everyone was lagging around me.
