What kind of team are you looking for : Race / Endurance Racing etc.. Age: 30 Country: UK Preferred Car/Track: FBM, BF1, SS's Average Laptime on Your Preferred Car/Track: I work for consistency, I can get close to WR with some practice. How Active Are You? I am pretty active, available to race over the weekends and if required in the evenings during weekdays. What Kind of Control do you use? DFP Time Zone: BST / GMT+1
Extra: I have been racing in CTRA for past two years, got Platinum in Tin Tops and A->International in SS's. Since it is close now, I am moving on. Along with that I race rFactor with FSR in F1. I put a lot work in for setup and testing and getting the car right for race by working with team. For me it is very important to have a car for race i-e not one lap wonder and I am looking for a seat to race regularly. I like Single Seaters, and GT cars, and would like to race regularly (30+ lap races) for teams who do events spanning over a season like F1 or GP2 or Porsche Cup etc. I am totally not interested in short race events and turn up and drive.

Age: 14 Country: Ireland Preferred Car/Track: XFG / FE1 - FXO / FE2 Average Laptime on Your Preferred Car/Track: About 7-8 tenths off WR on FE1 in the XFG, on a good day and about a second off on an average day.

Extra: Was previously in W00T Motorsport and Experion Racing. Iv been playing LFS for a year now and I love FWD cars. i can drive RWD too but prefer FWD. Every day in the summer I will be working in my family business, but I get home usually around 5 and I will be on then for the evening. Some days I dont bother going to work so I do be on alot of the day. I race IRL too , moving up from karting this year after 6 years in rallycross.
True, but you had to be a decent driver to earn points on CTRA and keep earning them as they pretty strict rules for wreckers and dangerous drivers. The league I currently race in rFactor have similar principles and that is what attracted me to them. They do full race marshaling and they analyze replays after each race and apply panelties where ever rules are broken. So you can not get away . One can only progress in such system if you have discipline in racing.
I'm really appealed by this kind of posts, which a)are off-topic and b)denigrate a person of a group of person without foundement.
Considering your high amount of post, I can suppose that your aim wasn't to troll, just to bring to post something else to the conversation, but this was highly hasardous. Maybe you're experience of CTRA is too tiny to have a god judgement of the things?
Seriously, I've raced more than 1.300 races on CTRA, and I never ever saw full speed ramming. Yes, I've got wrecked a few times, but a)it was quite rare if the wreck was volonteer, and b)I always reported this kind of noobs, and all of them got banned, some of them for good.
Yep, CTRA had an awersome report system, and combinated to the liscence system, it always provided decent racing, much better than the standards we can have on the main pulic servers of today - and I don't blame anyone, because it's a very hard job, but for example I don't think that the live-adminning we have on the LR-Race Center is good.
CTRA could be critisized on many points, but if there's a point where it couldn't, it was on the standards, and if you don't want to trust me, I've plenty of replays on my HD, just ask me to upload them somewhere and you'll see.
So... Just my 2 cents... Have a think about that now
Consider your self lucky. I have to say, SS racing was pretty clean because people actually knew how to race in there. However, the XRG/XFG server had a lot of idiots, well ok, maybe new players who didnt have an idea of what they are doing. Especially at tracks like Fern Bay Gold, where everyone just drives into T1 like they are all alone not even bothering to look around. Yes, the first 10 drivers always got past cleanly, down the field tho, it was always a different story. What was even more annoying about them is that they would start accusing other people and start massive arguments, call everyone dickheads and during teh next race full speed ram into the field.
This has happened to me quite a few times. What was annoying is that there was no admin, and people could not vote kick. We were basically forced off the server because this idiot always rammed into people.......
OK, you might say its a one time event, but I very doubt it was. Just because you havent experienced it doesnt mean it hasnt happened.
Hence why I always stuck to Single Seater FBM server.
CTRA was great, no doubt. But dont come here saying it was always clean. Because it clearly wasnt......
Edit - And seriously, dont bother attaching MPR's.... They proove nothing.....
It happened sometimes. But you only had to raise a reports to the few idiots that were messing up tosee them banned 999.
Hey, don't only judge CTRA by its entry servers only. It was only the visible side of the iceberg. The standard of the other servers were just excellent, and the only other place where I saw better racing on a public server was on CR's LX server on the Thursdays night(well, these are semi-organised events so that's not exactly the same thing) but unfortunately I can't give you some proofs. Clean racing is something you can feel, and you cant get stats of it...(well, maybe just the amount of yellow flags caused by a racer)
Its just few races..... Like I said. Clean racing did happen, and I can too attach few of the races where everyone got around T1 or the first lap untouched. I will say it again. If you havent experienced it, it doesnt mean it hasnt happened. Its a one race (And yes, I know you have more replays of good races...) out of... how many?
Edit: I am not arguing. I am just saying, that there were a lot of fast drivers with low points, simply because they were taken off the road over and over again.
Lets leave it here. If you want to reply, PM. Lets keep it clean here.
