    Thanks for getting in touch. Our next step will be to put you in a short race to evaluate how you drive. Are you available on Thursday at 10am BST?

    I don't understand. What do you mean by safe language?

    I'm sure we can work around it. Would you be able to race?

    Thanks both of you. I am unavailable on Saturday as I am marshalling for a league all day. Is Friday at 10am BST ok?

    We will be testing in the #51 AF Corse Ferrari 488 GTE Evo (which is a mod car- the link is below) at Silverstone GT layout. We will be doing two sessions- one in the day and one at night, since the race itself is 24 hours.

    You will also need the DLCs for the cars:

    I haven't set up the server yet. I will post the details here this evening, but you won't be able to access it until tomorrow at around 10am BST.

    Here is a link to our Discord server:
    https://discord.gg/M2bTNZf
    Please join it so that we can communicate more easily.
    Just to clarify, you will be taking part in the race itself either on your own (using AI control) or in a team. We are not a team. If you would like to race in a team, you will need to either find teammates externally or internally (ie, within our community, or outside it).

    I will do some testing on that track with an car and let you know how I go but I am also hosting a race this Saturday at 7:30pm Brisbane time which I believe is close to the exact time you have specified :( . I am keen to have a go but this weekend is out for me to test online, Can you give me some idea what lap times I am supposed to achieve at this track with this car ? cheers.

    That's fine. The point of the test is not for you to achieve a certain lap time, but to achieve consistency, and for us to see how you execute overtaking/defending moves. I am happy for you to do whatever testing you want, but I will still need to run the test at some point. Can you send me a few times when you are available and I'll pick one of those? Also, that is not necessarily the car that you will be running for the race itself. You are free to pick any GTE car. If we get enough signups (so please encourage anyone you know races on RF2 to sign up) we will be allowing drivers to pick GT3 and LMPs as well.

    Basically, we just want to see that you can drive consistently and safely, within the rules.
