    THE HONEY JAR - ASSETTO CORSA GT LEGENDS

    SIGN UP HERE FOR THE SERIES
    https://www.simracingonline.co.uk/racing/seriesinfo/21





    Welcome to a new series by Sim Racing Online: The Honey Jar - Assetto Corsa GT Legends.

    Most of us will still remember the old GT Legends, a revolutionary Sim Racing game by Simbin. And now these classic cars have come to Assetto Corsa.
    And it does not disappoint! It is a masterpiece all on it's own. You will be enjoying every minute spend in a variety of classic cars from the 60's and 70's. No driving aids, just pure driving!
    And we want YOU to come on board and make it a historic event!
    Although every car has completely different handling, balance and character, the power to weight ratio’s is pretty equal, resulting in close laptimes and –racing.
    There is a complete overhaul of sounds and physics, rescaling and polishing of models. All cars are on TireModel 10.

    This series is a competition with money prizes.
    Sim Racing Online is putting € 150,- in The Honey Jar as a starting amount.
    Every body who signs up will be asked to contribute € 5,-. This also goes into The Honey Jar as prize money.
    There will be a maximum grid of 24 drivers. 24 x 5 = 120 + 150 = € 270,- prize money!
    PLEASE TRANSFER € 5,- TO NIGEL MIDDLETON (SRO owner) BEFORE SIGNING UP.
    Paypal address: nigelj55@googlemail.com
    (Send money as a friend or family, so we don't have to pay any fees)



    There will be 8 rounds. The first 10 places win as follows (with 24 drivers):

    1. € 72
    2. € 54
    3. € 41
    4. € 32
    5. € 23
    6. € 16
    7. € 11
    8. € 9
    9. € 7
    10 € 5

    Might be tempted. How do the cars compare? Are they all on the same level?

    The only app everyone should have is Helicorsa. It makes you aware of cars that are nearby and helps avoiding crashes

    This one I'd love to go for it but, again, races a 20:00 I can´t. Simply because I can´t leave my Mum dining alone.

    John vd Geest Administrator Staff Member SRO Team Member

    I understand Luis. Maybe this is an idea ... make a arrangement with her to dine together sooner or after the race. The race is just 1 hour :)
