@EVR Matt212 as you use a TMX wheel for other things do you think you could help @Zwomp with getting a set up for his wheel?

I can try to bud its completely at the other end of the spectrum, main things I'd say with thrustmaster wheels is bring the weight down a bit and have a look around with the ffb, do not change deadzones :)

I would like to know about pit stops, is there a mandatory pit stop that has to be done or is it drivers choice to pit or not?

Will this be stream and commentated? Does Forza even have that capability? I'm not sure.

Think we should find a way to work around pitstops, like running on cosmetic damage, because of the current pitstop glitch in Forza since the February update. It doesn't ghost cars in the pits, causing cars to hit each other and getting stuck

I am not sure if it will be streamed and commented, if the participation stays up for the whole season it will be looked into further, I know there are a few that will be streaming their POV.

will look into the pit deal, part of the reason for running simulation damage is to prevent the race from becoming a crash fest similar the forza public online races

@SavageSnailx69x Ok thanks for the response because when i ran a 50 min test race i got to the end without refueling or a tire change.

@SavageSnailx69x Usually sim damage isn't a problem, and a good thing. At the moment however I'm not sure it is.

Pitstops are some kind of Russian roulette atm because of the glitch. If you get hit you can get stuck and that'll be race over.

As I see it there are two options:
  • Preventing pitstops have to be made (at least mandatory ones)
  • Or trusting people to be aware of the problem, and realize they can't pit when a car entered the pits <5 seconds before them.

@SavageSnailx69x Jack Hopwood has just informed me he's been rushed to the hospital and is not going to be able to make it today, he doesn't have internet and asked me to inform you

Yes it does. Actually remember that race very well:D Must've been like two and a half years ago by now. Think I just started league racing a couple of months before that. Certainly remember you being a lot faster than me. But you had to make an extra pitstop due to damage which allowed me to get ahead, just. I was lucky Bathurst is such a difficult track to overtake. Although you got very close that last lap when I had to go defensive for the chicane and the last corner.;)

Used to use cockpit cam back then, but changed to chase cam later in Forza 6. Love cockpit cam, but for competitive racing I need the spacial awareness you get with chase cam.
Woaw, you really do remember that race - it was a rocky one for sure! I think the roles have reversed now my friend, I've been off of Forza for far too long and this is my first league race on Forza 7! Best of luck to you tonight Martin!

I'm streaming on my Twitch here: Shall upload to YouTube afterwards (if anyone's interested!)

Has anyone got lap times for Brands Hatch yet? I tried a few laps but can't tell what's good pace here.

Who's likely to race tomorrow? I'm not keen on sparing time for this if it's a quiet turnout like last week, especially given the effort @SavageSnailx69x and others have gone through to make this series. :confused:

I'll be there. A better turnout would be pretty cool too, hopefully more show up this week.

that's part of the problem right there, people show up for the first race don't have a good turn out, then leave, which makes the turn out for the next race worse, then makes it hard to get new people interested in joining when they see people do things like that, instead of planning on not showing up this week because of the turn out last week, show your support and show for the rest of the races.

when people show up for a race then quit after one or two makes it harder on us as coordinators for trying to get further leagues approved
