Right lads its pretty clear that people haven't read the rules or at least need to freshen their memory again! I heard in the chat and noticed some things that need to be sorted eg. Flashing lights, moving in the braking zones, bad rejoins etc. Look i don't want to baby everyone but we all signed up to this to get some clean respectful decent racing, which is a hell of a lot of fun when everyone is trying to do the same. Case in point: race 1 was epic between myself @KhaosTheory29 and @Pinecone (kudos on that pass @KhaosTheory29 lol)
And as for the party chat.... I'm all for a bit of craic but if we could please try and keep it to the lobbies before and after the races/quali.

This is not me picking on anyone in particular this message is for everyone

@Arran (and anyone else who might be stuck using wireless): You should consider seeing if powerline adapters would suit your setup. If you're a few rooms over from the modem or if you can't get a lan cable to the xbox, a set of powerline adapters should do the trick. Basically, they use the electrical wiring in the house as if it was as a lan cable so you could have one end plugged in to the wall by your xbox and the other end by the modem and voila, a wired connection! You'd get a decent pair for 30 quid or there abouts. Saved me a load of hassle when I lived in my old house.

I’m going to ask my uncle if he could drill some holes into the loft and across into my room so that I can feed an Ethernet through. Hopefully he’ll be able to, but I’ll keep this in mind if not

If u are going to run a cable up the walls and along the ceiling and doorframe etc u will need a large cable! Measure before u buy, I'd suggest 50m cable min..

20m will probably do, there’s only one wall in the way. Hopefully this works!

Trust me bud I've a cable that goes from my hall to the kitchen, about 4m in a direct line to my rig through one wall and I bought a 30 m cable and just about stretches and no more!!!
Use some string to measure it out then measure the string, I don't want u to waste Ur money having to buy twice!

That’s a pretty good strategy with the string! Will do that

U will be surprised how much u actually need! Make sure wherever the string goes, that will be your cable so right up to the Xbox port lol and try and give yourself a few metre extra for future, better to have 10m more than u need!! Lol good luck

At this point, I’m strongly considering resigning from the League. My connection with Sky has been utter crap for the last 3 weeks, particularly last week through Storm Ciara. There’s no point in me being registered in the league if I can’t race anyone, let alone make it into the races due to my Wi-Fi issues. I will turn up next week, but with little reason. If allowed to race, I will be taking it very easy.

I wish you all the best in your races and I hope to return properly in the future.

Edit:
Just upgraded Wi-Fi, guaranteed minimum is 30Mbps Download and 10Mbps Upload. Look set to race next week, as long as the upgrade kicks in in time
