Yay, XRT action! Consider me interested!

E: Ah i only now noticed the time of the test. It's likely that I won't be available as well (this specific saturday, other saturdays are good) :/
#3 - rik97
Can't be there as day and times are not the best for me. But a good sort of event, I hope it will succeed Thumbs up
Welcome to the series and we hope to see you all there this Saturday for this Non-Championship promo race!
Niko and I will be your race marshals and hopefully we'll have the Safety Car driver ready as well.

Remember, when you flip or sustain damage that makes your car nearly or completely immovable, do not quick-spectate. Wait for the marshal's decision!

IMPORTANT!
Safety car will be called through onscreen RCM - Race Control Message.
When shown, drivers are to slow to 100 kph, or 60 mph. No passing!

Pitwork is not required, however, pit strategy is encouraged!

General racing etiquette is to be observed, do not cause crashes. As with any league, complaints and protests are to be published here once the event is over.
It's nice to see something new being organized. Personally - the time and day not really working for me,I'll always will favour some action outside the virtual world at the weekends,but could join occasionally.
Im interested, but cannot attend the test round due to already planned activities...
Rats, can't make it. iRacing Le Mans 24 hour this weekend. Frown
Same as mbutcher, lemans all the way. Good luck btw

Consider pushing the test date 1 week? I believe I should be available next Saturday.
Nice layout, nice car select. Like!

I've ended up spotting for a team in the 24 this time. Won the Nurb24 in our split in the Miata last month though Big grin
Just to mention: the server is listed as cruise server in the multiplayer list - may be diffcult to find for anybody who uses the "Race" filter. (sorry for bringing this thread back on topic)
Also there is lack of signs on this track. When you exit the pits, for the first time especially, you don't really know which way is correct so I would suggest to put some arrows to show where is pit exit.

I would love to have also distanse signs for more corners cuz currently only few corners have got it.

For example the start points could be rotated towards the direction of pit exit so one need not to guess between left or right.

About other signs, during first laps I was also missing that kind of information texas mentioned. But after doing some 20 laps and coming familiar with the track, I don't need signs anymore.
I'll see what i can do, the layout has 2100 objects so it won't be easy Big grin Or is it possible to display a pop-up message via airio when joining on track? Fixed the cruise filter now, too. Big grin
Aforementioned suggestions may be taken into consideration and circuit tweaks made before Qualifying tomorrow.

Thanks!
I see you don't have plans to move the test 1 week later? I'd love to participate if it were happening next week just like a few others I believe Smile.
I'm interested as well, but I agree with others as I can't attend this weekend Frown
@Pete @sobis @Mandul

Do not worry! The season proper will feature exciting, new tracks and races and will take place next month (June) onwards!
