    I raced 4 others 1 hour ago.
    Prob. depends a lot on time of day. Maybe Paul has an idea when chances are best?

    Years ago I helped run a public server. You wouldn't believe how often I'd see (in the logs) that 8 people had joined in an hour, but each leaving within 5-10 mins because they were alone or only had one other person in there. Numbers bring numbers, sometimes you have to hang in there for a little while...

    My memory is seemingly becoming a potato as well, lately I'm forgetting to post everything I had thought of. :rolleyes:
    So last night before I posted I set up a two track server. Silverstone I set practice to have a "heavy" realroad, Sao Paulo I set to a "green" realroad.
    Changing between the two tracks and Silverstone definitely had rubber down and Sao Paulo was devoid of the grippy stuff.
    As always, take my findings as, my findings. We know how the rF cosmos can work in weird ways.

    Ok folks how we doing! Sever will be going up a bit late today as I'm traveling out to meet the fella who is kindly donating most of the bits for building a new server pc, as the potato as you know has its problems. What a star this chap is! anyway will be too far away if anything goes wrong so will start server later on this afternoon. Will let you all know when it's up!

    Server is now up! Just search for:

    POTATO

    As name has now changed!
    Have also tried setting every session to naturally progressing, so maybe we may have that rubber build up from 0% to however much at end of day.

    Enjoy!

    I went looking a few times, but I couldn't see it online?
    Is the Potato needing water?

    I had to take it down for a bit earlier, need PC for a few things, did make a post to let everyone know but seems it did'nt actually post, sorry about that. Should be up later for racing tonight, will keep you updated. Met up with the guy who has kindly donated me some parts to make a dedicated server PC yesterday, and today ive been offered some of the other bits I need to get it going, so at some point soon, all going well, i won't have to shut the server down when i need to use the PC for other stuff! Cheers v much to these two fella's btw!
