Hello and welcome everybody :)

I was thinking to run a prologue race on Tuesday, on some random track (we could vote for it).

It would not have any effect on the ranking, nor would it be mandatory - but it would be a great way to get to know each other on track, and test that everything works for us.

Are you guys interested?

Great! Will post a thread tomorrow evening (sorry, no chance before that).
No need to practice for the prologue, it’s just a friendly get together :)

actually managed to put something together already now :)

Different matter: We'd still need a backup host, in the unlikely scenario that I can't host a race.
Ideally someone with a good, stable connection, plenty of upstream and good pings across europe.

Is anyone interested and has the needed line?

@ahojekk ahojekk


I updated this list with all of your steam names. please have a look, in case I got something wrong. Will invite you later tonight in steam into a closed group, that we use as a base to invite you to the games. makes it easier :) The group is not meant for discussions, let's keep them here :)

Also, a warm welcome to @ahojekk , our final driver in the AM tier. Glad to have you onboard!

Well i can be your backup host if no one els can do it mate :)
Thanks for the offer! That would indeed be awesome. Do you have plenty of bandwidth? :)


Update! I attempted to add all of you on steam, but I am afraid, I might have not found each and every one of you, or added someone with a similar name.

Hence, if you didnt get an invite from me as of now, please add me on steam:

Also, please request to join this group (AM drivers only!):

And a welcome to our latest and final final addition to the AM tier, @Ivancero ! Great to have you on board :)
Have a look a round here, we have a voluntary prologue race tomorrow. check out car- and team selection threads as well.

Wish you, and all other drivers, an awesome time!


@Crymcn retired from the league for personal reasons.

Hi all!

Thanks for last night - Imola was a ton of fun.

I believe, ahead of our second round at Spa, we could talk about blue flag behavior?
Last night, blue flags were very well followed and people got out of the way, early and fast.

Big thanks to the lapped drivers, you went above :)

But: You did too much. Don't sacrifice your race for being lapped.

When you get a blue flag, you need to enable the faster driver to pass you at a safe opportunity.
Safe opportunities are on corner exit, ideally on the straights or early in the braking zones.
Mid-corner lapping is often dangerous and makes both drivers lose more time than needed.
When you are being lapped, see that you let the faster guy past by e.g. lifting a bit or for example braking early into the next turn.
Both parties should look for a way to manage the traffic with minimal time loss for both.
Make sure your behavior is predictable. You don't have to get out of the way, you are free to stick to your line. (just lift a bit to allow the pass).
If you chose to get out of the way, do it early, so the approaching driver is fully aware of your intentions.
Equally, if there is no safe opportunity to pass (thinking Eau Rouge in Spa), you have to follow the slower car until it is safe to pass.

How did you feel about on track behavior last night?

What's stuff we should keep doing and what stuff should we revisit for Spa?

I think everyone was polite and respectful and we all should to be proud of it. I agree with Stephan regarding blue flags, I was even gifted an overtake when I was unlapping another car, but it is definitely better to be in that situation than in the other extreme.

Other than that, my only *minor* complaint would be some people being too eager to come back to the track after going out. Not only it is important to be mindful of other cars coming behind, but it is also key to be careful not to spin again in the middle of the track as we reenter the tarmac and accelerate. It is very easy to lose control in those conditions and other people may not be able to avoid hitting your car or lose control of their own cars as a result

Yeah, I nearly hit someone at turn two. Lucky escape.

And about Spa, and Eau Rouge, it's really bumpy on the outside of the track so be careful, it'll make you go wide in the outcome. And especially on the first lap

About the stewards. Who are they, it can't be just the drivers of the tier, as they have a conflict of interest as they might want to give penalties so they gain advantage point vicepoinvice. So who are in the steward panel

Very valid question!

The stewards are part of the coordinators, moderators and other staff. Not all of us are stewards though.

Also, if you would for example report an incident involving me to the stewards, I would obviously not be part of that review.

Check also the rules on inquiries, they need to be made in good time after the race.

Hope this answered your question!

Yeah, that cleared it out. I'm not saying that you would use authority for your own good, but just came to my mind.

We welcome two late sign ups to the most awesome AM tier!

@Witte29 and @Browny29 ! Are you two ready to race tonight?

Have a look around, pick your car before the race. Check if you are able to team up with other drivers who do not have a team mate yet.
Get discord up and running and add me on steam.
And have a ton of fun!
