Hey guys,

Names Max, but Mr Power to you  ;) (i got it off the back of a hair dryer). I'm 22 and currently 4th year through my mechanical engineering degree (its nearly over!!!!).

I love cars and racing, mainly watch formula 1 and a little rally. Ive done a few track days in my mx5 and only span 5 times in the first 6 laps lol

Recently got a steering wheel and Assetto corsa so its safe to say i'm still slow haha. I want to get into it more and improve and race a few people as free practice or 300 ping racing gets annoying after a while. I've seen race department has a beginner drivers course for newbies who sign up, is there anything like that here?

My steam page is here (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198091101942/edit) for anyone who wants to add me on steam. Also have teamspeak and various over voice stuff. Hope to catch you guys around :)

Hi Max, and welcome to XGN. It doesn't matter how fast you are - with a big enough field, there's always someone to race against. All you have to be is fair, clean and respectful (i.e. not crash into people, or at least too often - we all do it, that's racing), so everyone can have fun.

I'll send you a PM with a few additional details.

My name is Stas (user Nzuku) I live in Melbourne born in Russia came here when I was 3. I'm 27 and play around with drift cars and 4wds (black holes don't ever do it)

Recently got my self a race SIM setup after wanting one for quite a long time.

Looking forward to racing with you guys soon once Optus fixes my internet connection...

Hi Stas. Welcome1 I am sure Wally will send you more info when your connection is ready. In the meantime, have a look at the sections dedicated to the Tuesday league and the Thursday fun races to see what we do and---in case you have to choose like I do---which one would suit you best. Also, as soon as your connection is good enough, join us in the many open servers Marty, Phil, Wally and other organize. Just search for "XGN" in the launcher.

Cheers!
