The night will start with a 3 lap qualifying session, which determines the starting order for the first race; the fastest driver lining up in pole position. This will be conducted at 9pm, any who join after this will start from the back of the grid for Race 1.

- Race 1 will have an additional lap added as a formation lap. Drivers will line up on the grid in order of finishing positions from Qualifying.

- Race 2 will have an additional lap added as a formation lap. Drivers will line up on the grid in reverse order of finishing positions from Race 1.

- Races will be 60 km in length (roughly) resulting in races that last up to 35 minutes in duration.

- There is the possibility of championship point penalties if it is deemed necessary for any engaging in on track misconduct, this will be determined by an third party if a protest is launched. Drivers who feel there has been misconduct are advised to record the incident using the Kinect feature. This can be activated by having your Kinect on and saying "Xbox Record That". It will record the previous 30 seconds of gameplay from your screen. Please note it is just a recording, not a replay so you will not be able to view it from different angles.

Wife decided to send a job back to customer which then made me disconnect from game after one lap of qualify. Then it won't even give me the option to join the game again.....not happy

Only been telling her for 6 years not to do that....grrrrrrrrrr  Mad Mad

Results should still be up by now. Half points for only one race would make sense. Keep the show rolling untill things get sorted in the back rooms. 

Try halving the race distances and running 3 heats per round.

Just went to check my recorded videos from the other night and apparently the xbox didn't record them, i only have reapr's v8's @ silverstone and a bunch of Battlefeild ones........ GRRRRRRR

Between this and the lack of competitors it wouldn't hurt if we just ran round 1 next week, however if we do this then i would like to suggest we drastically change the build to allow for better racing.

There wasn't a great deal of test runs done in the car before the build was announced and the build was stuck to as dektra had done a top job of making up the video, something i didn't really want to tell him to go do again.
Whenever we did a test session there someone was always not taking it seriously so we never did a great deal of laps in the original build.

There has been several suggestion that we change the car, but rather then saying it sucks you could be a little more constructive. Like adding what the car needs to be better or offering to help with the build.

So far the following have been pointed out:

The rear wing causes the car to understeer when the car is pushed - so it either needs to go or the car gains adjustable front and rear areo.
This would add an extra tuning point on the car, run low for higher speed on the straights and high for a quicker car in the corners.

Cars are not powerful enough and ill say it, they're dull and uninspiring - you cant even get a toe if your behind someone on one of the longest straights in the game, so passing is only happening when the guy in front makes a mistake.
More power would help, possibly a tyre width increase - open to opinions.

People didn't sign up because of stock breaks with ABS forced off - bit disappointed that people couldn't just learn the car, but race breaks could be an option. Personally i prefer the sports brakes as its a level field, i locked up brakes at times just the same as anyones else. But this is a community series, if having adjustable brakes will see more numbers then its definitely an option.


........... more reasons, tired form work.

If you want to help out wit the build ill be on XBL soon, jump in my party and we can have a look at it.

Also need a Numberboard made up if anyone is interested.

I was thinking something like the Forza 4 V8 one, its simple and the yellow numbers stand out

Bump them up to 200kw and remove the wing. Make them a similar standard as the BTCC one i ran on FM4. They seemed pretty good.
