    Rob, what do you think of racing these on every other Tuesday night after the CMS fun series is over? We're going to have 20+ drivers without a Tuesday race.

    This one has a good starting time but unfortunately I'm too busy in August. Maybe some other time :)

    Still planning to do some oval racing sometime Guy?

    I have asked around about oval racing and there is just no interest. That NSC06 mod is not very popular and this is a very euro-centric gaming community. I'd love to, but a race with 2 or 3 guys on an oval would just suck LOL

    I guess we have to wait a bit before there is prober car for oval racing. Maybe until ISI will release indy cars.

    Yeah, that will jump start oval racing in rF2 for sure! Too bad ISI are making Indy though, there is already a great Indy in-game right now and when they remake it, that'll be months of work from ISI on a duplicate track. They are a small team and that much work essentially lost will only delay other content :-/

    the Indycar stuff is what I am looking forward to the most, that and the Mak Corp stuff that's been announced.

    True, but with only 15 drivers there are plenty of cars available and no one will have to choose a slow or crappy car. You can find 15 completely competitive cars in this mod.

    I have tried the build it and they will come thing with rF2 before and no one came LOL! To run a successful pubby, you really need a regular group to seed the server at the right time and attract others. A regular group on a passworded server is even better because then you don't have to deal with wreckers/pubbies coming in and ruining the racing.

    Tuesday Aug 13 I will be on that server at the regular CMS time and I'll try to get a 30 min race going using Zolder79 (it's only 2 days after this race and we will already have it worked up- the timing just works out like that) using the CMS rules like in the fun series. No aids except autoclutch and 50% damage. At least until CMS takes that spot back and puts a series on at that time again. They can (and did!) do a much better job than I can.

    Who cares of competitive cars anyway? I'm driving the car that attracts me the most. And that's the Fittipaldi/Copersucar #14 ;)
