as it is a "fun" run, I will be taking the RUF, man those other do not have "fun" in their description  ::)
I find that funny Bruce, for me the RUF is the most difficult to drive. :-\

yes thanks ,  will have a spin tonight.
appreciate it a lot as i have been flat out last few days and done nothing towards Thursday night 
Should I put anything on the server :)
At this stage I am happy with the car selection on my server, and I was going to suggest a season with these cars, of 8
races at different tracks, where every driver has to drive each car at least once.
Track selection could be:
Zolder 66
Monza 66
Hockenheim 60's
Silverstone 67
Zandvort
Monaco
Bruno(there is a good version available from http://www.triple7racing.net/downloads/ac-tracks-downloads/) but you have to join.
Longford 67

If anyone would like to suggest a track they are more than welcome to do so.
If anyone thinks the whole idea for the season is a load of bollocks they are welcome to say so.
Could we use my server for the fun run on Thursday night as a stress test, keeping in mind I will be bit useless as the admin of it.

Rooshooter is the server just your home PC? You might struggle to host a fair number of drivers unless you have a very good upload speed and low latency.

Ping is 11 ms Upload is 20 Mbs the connection is NBN FTTP. The server is running on my spare PC i54440 not my gaming PC, is this good enough Wally?

May be due to its "balance" I drive the RUF more cautiously. Like you season plan,if it is run,  I'll be happy with that,

Thanks Bruce , I think it maybe more FUN if people can run the whole season in one car if they want to, I have found switching cars
it takes some time to adapt.  I would choose GT40.

We can try it, but I think the upload speed may struggle a bit. It depends on numbers. We'll see.

Be aware of the chicane at the end of the lap before the start/finish straight. If you go off the track to the left you fall into a hole and have to force quit the game. Did it a few times learning the track and twice again today when pushing it.

Here's my fancy track re-entry in the red RUF on the last lap of race 1.

Says the video is private wally. That was the only way I was getting past you though. Seemed all the cars were quite well matched with strong points in different areas.
