Are you after 60s circuits? Zolder67 is good but in Belgium.

Otherwise or as well - Sachsenring is German and is a good mod and we have raced there before.

Does that mean I can drive a red BMW in one race then a blue BMW in the next one etc? ;) :D

Got a fixed version of Zolder 67 as well.

There's three and a half BMWs to choose from. ;)

After I install that mod ,when AC is loading it gets to "Loading car metadata 100%", then sits there with a spinning circle forever.
Any ideas.
Only thing I can think of is I can't get AC to run unless I have "force 32 bit" ticked. Is this mod only programmed for 64bit?
Just remembered that after I installed the Formula 1 1975 mod  I had the same problem.

Sounds like you'll need to fix that 32bit switch as that should never be needed.
You also must use 'Content Manager', not that the mod is incompatible with the standard launcher it's just that 'Content Manager' is so bloody good it deserves the imperative. ;) Especially as the standard launcher is a steaming pile of proverbial. >:(

Double check you folder structure with the download.

You may need to delete the 'Assetto Corsa' folder from within your 'My Documents' folder, but that involves losing all your settings. >:(

That was not my intention, could you start from pits maybe ?
If we go straight from a "Practice Session" to a Race , how are starting grids slots allocated?

I suspect the 32 bit problem is my Windows installation as I also cannot get RF2 to run in 64 bit, but I can get lots of other programs to run in 64 bit so not sure how to fix it, and I don't want to do a new Windows install if I can avoid it.
Did delete the 'Assetto Corsa' folder from within your 'My Documents' folder, but that didnt fix it, but as mentioned in another post it gave my fps a big lift.

Could Steam be the problem?

I guess that is a common thing with AC & RF2, but how do I check that?

You can backup all your local steam files for each game so you don't lose all the downloaded tracks and cars. If you go the win reinstall route.

For the third race how about rolling reverse Championship order. First race would see us seeded by the rankings that Wally keeps, and from then on we will have results from each week so the starting order can be published even before the event.
That could work if people make a note of the two drivers below them in the standings, in case one is away. I could add a link to the results, next to the track selection for that week.
