This was as close as I got, 5th birthday present, complete with Can-Am cars. ;D

Ha yes, awesome. I'd forgotten I had something very similar.

Sign up and rent a car at the car dealer, and read about the season here.

This round is 3 x 10 laps.

I've cancelled people's earlier signups, so please sign up again.

Round Format
Three 20 minute sprints - qualifying, then races 2 and 3 in finish position of the previous race.
Tyre wear will be 0.5x.

Round Schedule
Check it out here: https://xgnsimracing.com.au/season/schedule

Season sign up
Head over to the car dealer to sign up for the season. You must sign up in the Car Dealer, not here!

You log in with your GUID (aka your Steam ID). You can find your GUID in your Assetto Corsa/cfg/race.ini file - it's a 17 digit number. The default password is the usual XGN password - you should change your password after you log in, with the menu option at the right hand side under your name.
Skins are just random at this point.

Buy a car
When you sign up for the season, you'll have enough money to buy any of the 3 slowest cars. You can choose any car you can afford. By default, you get the slowest car.

What happens after a round?
The higher you finish, the less you earn. This will balance the field, with slower drivers being able to afford faster cars. Any significant damage you incur through the round will cause a repair bill to be deducted from your earnings.
You'll be reset back to the slowest car, and you can now choose another car to buy for the next round.

You would flick a marble up the side with a spring, like a pinball machine, and the first player to get all their cars to the bottom won.

I didn't really enjoy these cars. Too hard, too much throttle control needed. Give me a car where I can just mash the throttle :)

Last night's race was fun though. I actually had some racing with people, which I didn't get to enjoy a lot of this season. The finishing laps with Killa were great fun, a real battle with some passing and counter-passing. It's nice and difficult being right behind someone into a corner, barely able to see where you're going. Unfortunately the final lap battle came unstuck near the end when we touched while side by side in a corner, but it was still a nice finish to the season.

I'm going to run a short, 4 week test season in a range of Porsche street cars to test the car dealer here, starting from next Tuesday.

I'll put up more of an explanation soon.

Wally are you wanting us to run some laps on defaults? Perhaps a mild setup, such as tyre pressures, fuel, and aero? or see how the cars optimize with setups to each track?

I ran the Porsche Cayman GT4 around Monza a few times. It's a track that is known for low aero... my time was with 0 front and rear wing & tweaked tyre pressures. Plenty more in it though.
Just do the best lap time you can on whatever setup you want. Just make sure it's at 26 degrees air temp, so it counts as a "pro" laptime on the RSR rank.

Congratulations to season 25 champion, Matthew111.

Results are up in the 1st post.
Congratulation Matthew on your 7th championship!

Hey Wally, I’ve had no internet for the last few days, so I guess I’m out.

Have fun tonight guys.
Bad luck Rob  :-X

No problems at all. The two sales guys were friendly and helpful, but of course it comes down to individuals at the end of the day.
