    This track is great. It's the old Portland, no chicane, nothing fancy at all, just a great driving track! The Sprint version is the 'No Chicane' version I reckon. Really fun!

    Haven't had any crashes as yet. Not sure if anyone has had the freezes. None while I've been on.

    Server is ready for race day. Hoping for a good grid to test the server out properly. Absolutely love this Portland track.

    Early start tomorrow so can't make this evening, was in Practice last night for about an hour and had no issues with the server.

    Bit miffed I can't join tonight; just hit a 1000th outside 1:18, was hoping to be just a little competitive.
    Enjoying the racing :)

    Ha, no chance - half my size but she most definitely wears the trousers :D
    Was pumped for this, was going to be my first ever 'proper' race; booking next weekend off.

    On a separate note, race-time comms are on the TS?

    Always fun racing!

    I did nearly lose 3rd through getting confused on timing and nearly stopping a lap early... bit iffy in a couple of places on that last lap Cookie, sorry about that, but great racing :D

    RESTART ( Thank you by the way Lads)
    Qualifying. After busting me arse to nabb 3rd @ the death
    Race : I get kicked at the start .. Lost Connection :(

    Please can restarts be back at the warm up as I needed to check wheel / controls & load setup.
    By the time I left the pits I was 3/4s a lap down !!! and with a wheel that took a lap & half to catch up with me ... What was with the pace-car & rolling start would have been nice to know

    Sorry for the formation lap. After re-installing and loading new .jsons that was a setting I forgot to change. When you say "kicked" was that lost connection or game crash?

    I got a CTD at the end of Q when the game switched to warm up.
    Thanks for putting on, great racing with Kiko

    Clean is always fun. Bryan and myself spend a lot of time close racing during the week. Certainly helps on race day.

    So this week we are sticking with the F3 and heading to Angelsey Coastal Circuit (Workshop). This is one tricky track with almost no brake markers and a number of blind turns etc. Have fun.

    Did a fair few laps yesterday. The last bit is mickey mouse and the 2nd last turn has a hole (not a mesh hole, just a shoveled hole!) outside it if you overdo what feels like a 40kph turn. Should make for interesting racing :p but it's a good challenge.

    Would also like to welcome all the new people we have had join us over the last few months. Grid numbers are becoming quite healthy each week with 12 or 13 again last race.

    Ok guys, if the server is still behaving after this weeks race, I will work out a timeslot that works so we can have an extra race. Will be earlier (either Friday night/Saturday night) in the evening for UK and some EU. Trying to avoid Sunday as it means Monday here but we will see. Open for discussion.
    At this point it will be same mod combo just different times. I have another idea in the works for another server but if that doesn't work out we can look at running a separate server and mod combo.

    Tough combo that one.Congrats to the podium.
    This week we go to Mike Cantwell's latest release, Gnoo Blas. An old aussie track from the 50's. Have fun all.
    On another note I haven't heard from Bryan for 6 days so unsure if he is ok or back in hospital. Have emailed and will fill everyone in as soon as I find out anything.
