I will try to create the room some time after 7:30, hopefully no later than 7:45.

 

Check the event thread at that time.

There was a good turnout, so I am glad a few of you dug out your GT discs.

 

Please consider racing with us again new Monday.

The racing will be good and clean.

Monday: August 27

 

Time: 8 PM - 9 PM (or later, depending on interest) Be on time!

 

Track: Grand Valley Raceway, reverse (hopefully less trouble on the first corner...)

 

Car: NASCAR

 

Race conditions:

 

PP range: maxed at 630

Tires: Racing Softs (RMs didn't cut it)

Laps: 7 (this extends the time enough to make a pit stop necessary)

Tire wear: Low

 

This combo is to highlight using care with the accelerator and to control tire wear. Tires get best results on the 2nd and 3rd laps. By the fifth lap, you should be getting into trouble. Don't push your luck any further. So the question is, do you pit on the 3rd or 4th lap?

 

You should be able to get around 1'50 laps, at best, but remember - there are sand traps, and be careful when exiting hairpins.

 

Racing will start on time, so be early.

I'll try to open around 7:30.

 

New races every 20 minutes.

Labour Day Monday Race

 

Come and race with some MVPs and HCVs every Monday evening!

 

Now that everyone is back for school, we will be using the karts on Kart Space I, so make sure you have either/both of the 100 or 125 karts and the track DLC. 

 

Check out the details in the link above and, please, be early.
