I enjoyed the race while I was running, for the most part. Thanks again for organizing and hosting this event. I had little practice time available. Forced to retire due to burned up clutch. I hope to be more prepared for the next race.
This is my observation and personal opinion on the issue with the popularity of LFS. It takes hours of testing for most people to get a set correct and may never hit the mark. It gets too involved and intense for the semi casual driver. I feel like more would be interested, if it took less time to be competitive. Just my opinion and I will be happy to run whatever is decided. This is not meant as a criticism, I am looking forward to know the combo’s so I can do a little meaningful running!
A one class league makes the cars equal, why complicate things trying to equalize the cars. I would be a standalone participant and prefer a car such as FZR, FZ5, Open Wheel. I look forward to seeing the details. I live in America, 18:00 CET is 09:00 my time. I am probably the only runner to be this far away. I hope that I can make the races, I am a very big fan of endurance racing and believe it is much more competitive and fun on the open configuration courses, Westhill, Rockingham, Aston, Ferm Bay, all good layouts!
I have wanted to join this league and would now like to. However, the day of the week and time of day never works. I would like to see you move to Sundays, I would expect you would pick up a number of runners ;-)
Sorry, I may be inept, I don't see a remove or delete. I went to edit but cannot see how to remove myself except to erase team and number. Appears that you will need to remove me, I will ask Tiptoe to add me to the team signup.
Hello all! I don't have a lot of free time, but I am looking for some new racing friends on LFS. I plan to drive in the Open Endurance Cup, unless work interferes. I like the goal of this team and will go fill out an application. I can drive on Sundays, sometimes Mondays, sometimes work gets in the way. I enjoy driving, especially with respectful drivers in competitive racing situations. I enjoy driving most of the LFS cars in many combos. Hope to see you on track, whether I am accepted or not!

I am glad that someone understands this time zone thing, personally, I have figured out the start time for me, but around daylight savings, I watch the countdown clock. It is a little different for me being in the US, we race at Noon my time.
Sorry I have been absent, schedule change and practice time that is evening for everyone else is rare except Saturdays. This Saturday I will be out of town, but will be on the server early Sunday for some much needed practice :eclipseeh
Hope a few have decided to join us for the SO2 doubleheader this Sunday 21.July. This combo is a challenge for me, so I need a few guys to keep me company. To check the start time, please visit our website and check out the countdown clock! http://www.gentlemen-drivers-club.net/

I am a fairly new member of GDC and I wanted to let everyone who views this thread, how much I have enjoyed my time here! Everyone is very accepting and more than willing to coach, share sets and spend time on the server discussing the best line. I have improved my laptimes more than I ever thought possible, through sound advice and great competition.
If you are tired of poor competition and crazies on track, this may be the place for you as well. Join us for some practice and a few races, many Saturday's we like to get together for practice races and the administrators never disappoint with the variety of combo's.
Funny that i saw this post, I was recently thinking about a PS2 game that has a ghost driving mode. There you run laps and your best lap is ghost car. Its a great way to learn a track, if the ghost is in front, you can duplicate your break points and the apex. If it is behind you, well your better. It really is an amazing tool for setup and lap time improvement. Mabe there could be a way to load one of the ten best laps.
Sorry, I should have posted the specifics. I was able to race in multiplayer with 15-20 cars and no problem. Now, I cannot race in single player with 3 AI cars. I replaced the RAM, now at 4GB, Toshiba laptop, AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-70, 2 GHz, 32-bit. I guess I should first try to delete and get a fresh download. What do you think?
I have had problems lately, after using LFS for a year, the video is choppy. Sometimes it is very subtle, but affects playability, other times it freezes, especially with cars in front, comes and goes. Would a fresh load help? Could it be just my computer, had no problems for first year. Put new memory cards in it and that helped, but still cannot drive multiplayer without it freezing up.
