Summer events
Hi,

We have just completed our winter season and while we take some rest before the next season starts in September we have arranged 5 events over the summer which are open to everyone.

The Gentlemen Drivers Club, or GDC, is a group who take racing serious but do not think winning is the only thing that matters. We have a regular group of drivers who enjoy close racing but would never risk ruining someone else race by risking overtakes that are not 100% on. As a result we have built a club where we all trust our fellow drivers and don't need to drive with one eye constantly in the rear view mirror.

We use the summer events to try to find a few more like minded drivers. We are of mixed pace, all we are looking for is gentlemen drivers who share our values towards racing and see LFS as a simulator and not a game.

If you would like to join us for any of the summer races or would be interested in joining us in September please visit our site and register.

Thank you Badger!
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.

Hope to see you on track!

Practice Report F08/Ky2
Had a good practice session today in the F08 on Ky2, [MRc]Fabl, Gav and Badger set the pace with me a second or better back. That is until Twiggy and then Stuart showed up.

A good session given the frustration with the F08, but started to feel somewhat in control by the end.

Stuart led the session with a blistering pace and by the way it was nice to see him on the server; then I remembered why I did not really miss him that much!

Here are the session times!

Stuart 1:27.77
Twiggy 1:29.24
[MRc]Fabl 1:30.51
Gav 1:31.87
Badger 1:31.98
MTnRunnr 1:32.69
#4 - Be2K

i hope that i dont missunderstood the time difference between your CET and our GMT+1, i think i'll never become totaly clear about it

Is this Correct ?

20:00:00 Tuesday July 21, 2013 in CET converts to
20:00:00 Tuesday July 21, 2013 in GMT+2 (Germany)
Just a bump for anyone interested in taking part so you get chance to sign up to the site to get the password to race. Anyone is welcome, your pace doesn't matter, the main thing we race for is good clean fun. Great place for anyone looking to start racing in regularly organised races/leagues.


Be2k, race is as you say this Sunday 20:00 (cet / gmt+2) or 19:00 in uk (gmt+1). We added the countdown timer to the website to save any confusion, if you look at the bottom right of http://www.gentlemen-drivers-club.net/ it gives a countdown to the start of qualifying.

Hope to see a few new faces on the track this Sunday
Sunday's Race's
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

Looking forward to some great racing! :woohoo:

Well round one over and both great races, good to see some new faces and more importantly good to see nice clean racing.

Conrgrats to GenR Seb for back to back wins, also to Be2k for taking pole in qualifying. A great standard of driving in general looking forward to the next round.
