    Hi all,

    For some time I've been trying to join some online league or spare races but I always find the same issue, sessions start at a time I'm still busy trying to get the kids to bed, which is something bit out of my control when you a have a 2 years old (translation: you never know when you're going to be actually free).

    Races that start at 19:30 or 20:30 UK time are a bit too early for me, I tend to sit down in front of the sim at 21:00. Am I the only one with the same problem?

    I thought that some people may be in the same situation, if that's the case please join me! I managed to prep a dedicated server on an old laptop that had laying around, and was planning to arrange weekly/fortnightly late racing sessions. Timings could be something like:

    All UK times (BST/GMT, depending when you read this)
    21:00: 30 minutes practice
    21:30: 10 minutes quali
    21:40: 30 minutes race
    22:10 END

    Could be weekend or weekday, I don't mind. I was planning to use S397's GT3 or GTE and more or less follow the IMSA and WEC calendar (Road Atlanta, Fuji, Sebring, those kind of tracks).

    Is anybody up for that?

    Hi Bryan, thanks for letting me know. I'm going try those F3 cars, I never race open wheelers (new or old) but if I like them I'll pop in for a race!

    @AlexNordic if you're on Facebook look for Exiled Virtual Motorsports. We're UK based and a few of us are in the same boat as you having young kids.

    Awesome, that's seems exactly what I was looking for! Just in time when I managed to get my dedi working (mere 3 days to set up on an old ubuntu laptop )
