    A few of us jumped on and had a practise on Saturday night, never raced at Mid Ohio before, it's a very cool layout.

    Cheers t0p5ecret. Glad you're enjoying the series. The racing is very tight and battles everywhere with so many on the grid.
    Hopefully we will have the server issues sorted fairly quickly. The increase in numbers has shown us that we need to upgrade the server.
    We've decided to replace the server, so it may take a little while to get the new server up and running???
    While that's happening we will have a backup contingency just in case the old sever plays up this week.
    AMS Renault will be a challenge if we get the same sized field again. The times across the grid are tight...

    *** Server Not quite that old! Lol....

    Not sure if it has any impact or not but when I looked at the race info screen the other night it had bandwidth set to 9000 kbps.
    It's been so long since I've looked at the server side I can't remember if this relates to mod download speed or actual race bandwidth.
    Originally the bandwidth estimate was 768 Kbits/sec per user for server populations between 20 and 30 drivers.
    So for the 27 you had on the other night would be 20736 kbps.

    Round 4 @ AMS Renault Circuit this Tuesday, 28th July. Qualifying starts at 8:30pm (GMT +10).
    Must be on TeamSpeak to race.

    *** Server update***
    our new server has been ordered.
    Hopefully it won't take too long to arrive & be set up.
    If all goes well, we'll have it available for Round 5.
    In the meantime, we have upped the bandwidth on our current server &
    will have a backup server available if required.
    See you all this Tuesday for some more close racing action. :)

    Looking forward to this one, very twisty circuit with limited straights that can be taken advantage of. I can see some of the sand traps catching people out here tonight.

    You forget how good the game can look when you use VR exclusively. Nice Job..

    Our new server still isn't quite ready to go live.
    Our good friends at Outlaws Racing Australia
    have kindly placed up a GT3 server with NOLA
    to use for tomorrow evening.
    Hope to see you all there. Cheers. :cool:
