Hi Lloyd here , getting back into sim racing after quite a long hiatus after playing GPL back in the day. Saw the lights on thought i'd pop in say hello and hopefully start racing with you all.  Been playing iracing for the past month or so however it lacking in the comradarie that you can get while playing in a league. So been on the hunt for assetto corsa racers and here i am :) .

Hope to see you on track soon .

Welcome, we spoke on the practice server last night, come along if you like, Thursdays is all about fun, nothing serious,  the faster guys often self handicap, the worst part is the crazy person running it and how he makes it up as he goes along, so the rules could change at anytime without notice,  all in the spirit of fun of course  :P

Thanks for the welcome .

Bit daunted by the GPL cars , they are so hard to drive after driving the Mazda cups .

I was allocated the Mc Claren  on sign up so will stick with it , seems easier to handle than some of the others.

If anyone has a good base set up for the Mc Claren that they could kindly give me that would be appreciated.
Here's a base setup done on Deutschlandring.
It handles a bit different to the Eagle I'm used to, but the numbers are good, polish to taste. ;)

Hi Jarmel, some of have found that the McLaren is not the best of the bunch. If you have time you might find one of the other cars better.

Thank you for the set ups,  i'll give  Bacc's a go tonight , Been using his watkins glenn base set up with adjusted gears, tyres and suspension , I'm down to 3;18 , i reckon a theoretical of about 3;16. The Hair pins are a weak spot and 2 small sections of the track i just can't find the speed of the top runners.

Yeah Mclaren lacks the speed of the Fezza but i'll stick with it and i like the idea of seeing all sorts of cars on the grid , might have to change for Monza that track is all about pure speed.

Hi Mike, sure, come along on a Thursday night about 7:30 Eastern for a fun run. Then you're also welcome to drive one if the GPL 67 cars on Tuesdays too.
