Hi Nick.  I know exactly what you mean - the last time I raced properly was rFactor and since then it's only been AC with its realistic grip modeling that has drawn me back.

You should come along Thursday night for the "fun" races.  Season 2 shouldn't be too far away either.

Cheers.

Howdy!!
Just wandering about the web and stumbled in here. Seeing all these chaps I used to race with in LFS and on ARSE forums, thought I'd sign up. Normally race rfactor, just exploring Assetto Corsa, hopefully see you online (after I get all my bits together  ;D)
Cheers!!  :P

Hi Stan and welcome. We have a fun race on Tuesday (see the forum thread) which might be a fun introduction.

Hi! I'm Dave, 31 years old, married with a 2.5 year old, in Melbourne.

My time with racing sims started with LFS in about 2003. Played the demo for a very long time with only a mouse but never got fully into it. Finally got around to buying an S2 licence and wheel and loves every second of it. Played in EU leagues at 4am in the mornings and then found the AAL and MNR. Always seemed to get sick of no content and come back to play it after a while.

I tried to like rfactor but couldn't and finally got around to getting a free iracing membership this year, too bad about having to pay for all the damn content. :(

This brought me to AC, affordable and a great game overall!

Cya trackside :)

I think we should all change our name to Bruce to avoid confusion. Davo's going to race under the name Insomniac.

Few more of my name.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys :) I will be going as insomniac so there's no confusion with all the Daves lol

Was some great racing last night and I'll have to get a mic for teamspeak next time.

Hi guys

I'm an Xtreme gamer from way back racing in GTR2 and LFS once upon a time. Now that AC is here I'm looking to get racing again with you blokes aswell as the guys over at ARSE.

How do I get the passwords for the servers? I'm keen to join the FUN sever tonight :)

Hiyas

my name is brett, im from Newcastle and pour beer for a living  8)

another way back sim racer, started with F1GP ... missed the GPL era but was it LFS that really did it, raced in AAL as smasha d' back then. dabbled in rfactor1 after that for a bit ... toyed with iracing & rfactor2 as the racing bug was sinking its teeth in, but its AC that has me hook line and sinker.

Now with mplayer going and the leagues happenin' its a good time to be a sim-racer :)
