Before you take to the track in the league race, make sure you are fully aware of the rules and regulations of the leagues. As a driver in our leagues, you are required to do your very best to ensure clean and fair racing at all times.

No-shows: If you are unable to attend the race, please inform the League Coordinator and leave a post in this thread BEFORE the race takes place. Note the rules of participation here.

Save your replay: As a means of helping the stewards with any enquiries, all drivers are required to save their race replays and keep it stored for at least one week after the race has taken place. If you are involved in an incident or see something during the race that you feel needs to be investigated, you are free to make a stewards enquiry - however if enquiries are submitted without replay or race footage available, it is likely we can't do anything.

If you wouldn't mind sharing that mc-setup.................. ;)
[DOUBLEPOST=1449834121][/DOUBLEPOST] TBH, I've gone from optimistically looking for a top 6 finish at the start of the season to trying to limit how many times you lap me @Hugh263

Low 1:34's at the moment. I expect you and me would be racing each other next week. If I get a practice session going tomorrow afternoon I'll put it up here.

This track is a blast to drive. Did a 1:32 with high fuel. The McLaren seems to suit the track and hopefully I can make up for that dreadful Zolder race.
[DOUBLEPOST=1449836293][/DOUBLEPOST]@David Harrop if you want to do some practice this week send me a message and we can try get some good setups

I think that I may be at some sort of dis-advantage on this one lol
Might try a low downforce setup and see what happens ;)

Bit like an oil tanker, you have to start turning in a few hours before the corner.

HANG ON WAIT NO! You could just drive straight down the drag strip

So, this track is going to be a nightmare for tyres. Anyone able to stop them turning into lava?

Nope...
New patch out on Tuesday though I think. It's supposed to have in it a patch to change the way the tyres heat up...
