    Will be a great championship for sure, but :

    1°) Looks like there are few registered drivers 'till now, why not posting adverts on simracing.org and so on ? Would be great to grab a bit more drivers here and there..

    2°) I didn't see any skin pack to download, albeit there are a lot on RD. Could we include a bit of variety ? I mean, I like red italian cars, but.. :p

    Hi,
    About the skins, I collected some and put them into a .rar file all together. May I upload it so that everybody racing this championship could grab it ?
    It would be quite a shame to have only one red car skin don't you think ?

    Installing skins to user machines does not make it work in Assetto Corsa. To do that every skin choice selected by every user has to be configured in the server files, which takes a lot of time by the Admin hosting the series. Plus every time somebody joins the series or wants to change skins, it all has to be done again and re-uploaded to the server.
    For this series I am only allowing user custom skins and not other more generic skin packs. It wouldn't be the first time a series has run with a single skin :)

    So that if I have additional skins in my user install, I could pick one of them for my own car but will see all other drivers as stock red ?

    They will see you in a blank, white car.

    Something I still didn't get Ken : Isn't it possible for you to setup the server with an additional skin pack that every user would install also of course, whatever who gets what ? I mean, can't we just, in the lobby, pick one of the remaining cars ? It wouldn't be so serious not to have a dedicated skin car for the whole championship long..

    Or doesn't it work that way at all ?

    Alternative skins are not installed to the AC server. It is all done at client level, with a server configuration file assigning the skins to specific drivers.

    Any chance of a nice broadcast for this championship ? (If ever Caitlin is free)
    It's a great addition to the racing happiness..

    If Caitlin is free and available PLUS you are willing to pay the costs of it (it doesn't come free) then why not. :)

    EDIT Actually Caitlin is registered to run in this series so she is not available as a Broadcaster.

    Haha ok, didn't know that it wasn't charity work. :D Happy to race with her also then !

    We have great broadcasters who do an excellent job. Broadcasting is a great way to enhance our racing experience and we are happy to provide that service to our members. The only problem is the cost. If we can get more members to donate and help cover our monthly expenses then we will again consider broadcasting events. Currently we do not receive enough donations to cover our normal monthly expenses so we have decided to suspend broadcasting until donation increase. However, we are always open to any member who would like to privately sponsor a series and cover the cost of broadcasting.

    Well noted !
    I'm sorry not to donate for now but unfortunately the bills are accumulating these days.. :eek:
    I will do when I'm more comfortable for sure.

    I'm sorry but I don't understand the race timing actually : It says qualif time is 17h (lasting 10mn) and race is 18h15...

    Hi guys, I'm sorry I can't make this race. I just came back from 6 hours mountain hiking and my legs hurt and I'm very tired.
    Have fun !

    Thx for race! Never used this car before, but it is superb. Overall balance is good enough for such vintage car. Trailing is very easy and clear.
    p.s. Maxime Tendil sorry for first lap. I was overexcited by new experience.

    A great start to a promising series :) We had a very competitive field of drivers, so there was plenty of competition throughout the race from what I saw, although this Mottram bloke is starting to prove he is THE MAN in our AC races. I'd only give him half-points but I think he'd still manage to win a series even if I did :rolleyes:.
    Maybe we should arrange a Masterclass hosted by any of the top 5 drivers today, to show those of running 5secs a lap slower how it's done :D.
