    Hey folks! Today is gunna be something a bit different, I said I had an idea for a car track combo so here it is, today is all about The Riviera!

    If you're gunna go to Monte Carlo, you're gunna wanna do it in style and what cars got more style out of the S297 garage than The Panoz AIV Roadster! With its sweeping fenders and its leather interior its a perfect sight to see on the port! Also its another little Rfactor gem you don't see used alot so Its a nice break from the norm, and with its short wheelbase, decent turning circle and soft road suspension its very well suited to the bumpy twisty roads of the 1966 Monte Carlo curcuit (it also looks a bit like it could have come from the 60's even though its a 90's car)

    So for today its one car and track, this is also an excuse to see if the user autosave function for the real road will work properly as its not played ball when using multiple tracks!

    So, the suns out, the servers up, as usual just search in the multiplayer for POTATO

    See you there!

    It could be interesting in case anyone enters the server with trolling intentions or no fair racing-crashing.

    The server saves a log with all the events (who come in or out, crashes, offtracks, penalties, times, etc)

    Awesome, will be there.

    The car and track def. takes a few rou ds to get to grips on, but man.. It's a real "man's car" and the feeling is real car-like!

    For anybody not aware, it's in 30 mins.
    on the server you find by searching "potato" in multiplayer server list.

    uhoh, I don't see the server yet 8)
    will refresh more

    did it get a new name?

    I suspect it might have been the suggested CEST time zone that's playing a trick, so might be in 55 mins instead.
    8pm CEST

    On a completely unrelated note, here in Spain we use continental time because 50 years ago Franco, the dictator, wanted to have the same time as Hitler in Germany.
