How about we add the XGN prefix to our nicks, just for these open server/recruitment nights?

Good idea
I was wondering if I should put the discord in the server name, but worried we will get filled up with idiots all the time which would annoy Tuesdays also

You're probably right, anyone serious enough will look up the website

Open servers are a good recruiting tool that can get in some new drivers, but the randoms sure make it frustrating. In the last race, I come down the main straight and there's some guy just going really slowly towards turn 1 in the middle of the track, drifting sideways just enough to put me way off my line. I found the wobbly old car frustrating enough without mobile roadblocks doing random things! But whatever... if we get some new members it's all worthwhile.

It was good! No idea where Bacchulum and Phil got the extra speed from. Mid 57's were really impressive laptimes.

Just an idea I had after last nights very enjoyable racing.
Make Thursday nights FUN racing a no points series.
Just run say 6-10, 10 lap races, random grid, with just a few minutes between races to experiment with setups.

Maybe change cars every 4 weeks.

I was thinking of a different car every few weeks,  But had not planned that far in advance, this week will be the lotus 25 and will then pick a car to stick with for a few weeks

The short races was good but would still like points. Us lesser drivers would never have a chance of winning a sheep-station prized Tuesday season but with Flattops Thursdays we all have a chance of competing for a championship  ;D

I oppose Mael. :-X ;D

Tuesday I drive to get the best position I can, both in the races and championship.
Thursday I drive to get the best racing I can, don't give a damn about positions or points. ;)

...and didn't Flattop Thursday's start out with no points? ???
