Hello people!

After recently meeting @lemming77 through some friends and discussing how once upon a time I was into a little old thing called LFS, she asked me if I'd like to race some time. I dusted off my G25 and decided to give proper sim racing a go again. I picked up Automobilista and remembered just how much I enjoy hooning around a track. She pointed me here and suggested that I join the community, so here I am.

Some may have known me as Crazeddodgem, I was a moderator for a long time on the TestDriveUnlimited forum TDU-Central (Later http://forum.turboduck.net/). I know it's not a sim but as a community TDU seemed to pick up people from all walks of life.

Anyway, I hope to see you out on the asphalt soon enough! Ciao!

Good to have you here @Who! :D

You'll get a PM in a bit with all the info you need to access the FTP server where we store the mods we use, and get to the Teamspeak + game servers. From there, you'll be all ready to start hooning around a track in our club races instead! :D

Hi all,

I actually originally joined way back in 2015 with a view to getting into the mix, but somehow time passed me by and I never got around to it! I have now purchased Automobilista, sorted FTP and TeamSpeak to make a concerted effort to actually race this time :lol:

I am a true amateur and will do my best, but to increase my chances I have even sold an old iPad so I can purchase a (second hand) wheel. From what I've seen the Logitech G29 is a good option (also an avid PS4 gamer), would you experienced racers agree?

Any advise/tips would be much appreciated and I look forward to seeing you all out there soon!

Hello Luke! glad to see you here finally. I think you're the first member who has joined after being picked up at a wedding!

Anyway, well done for finally turning up 2 years late. If you're wanting to get in on the Celica action, you'll have to be quick and get some club racing under your belt to make sure all is well.

Look forward to racing with you!

Can't go wrong with the Logitech G series (25/27/29).

Ah, sounds dodgy but it's 100% true!

Thanks for the advise and will definitely do club racing 1st. Is there anything I need to download from FTP first?

It varies from night to night! Sometimes we will use stock content, other times we will experiment a bit more. For example: tonight's rFactor 2 event uses content downloadable on Steam's workshop. But whatever we use on Tuesday could well be obtained through the FTP or is already on the base game.

My name is Tim and I build racecars. Used to simrace back in the day with /ovg/ but havent touched the wheel in years, want to get back into it. This seems like a cool place ;)

EDIT: Oh boy there's a club race tonight? AMS is my jam so I'd love to join. Hit me up with that Teamspeak if that's cool with you :lol:

Hey Tim!

Ich schreibe mal gerade was auf Deutsch, damit der Rest 'ne Verschwörung wittert ;)

You already found the club races, but we gotta stick to the protocol, don't we? Take a look at our intro topic if you got a few free minutes, and once you got a few more minutes, check out the club racing forum over here (again). I'll PM you the server details in a moment, though it's not looking too busy today.

Hey guys, Ethan here, I've been a friend of @Mike Bell for quite a few years (we were even Team-mates in one Race07 championship), Mike recently started racing with me in AMS and told me this place is, apparently an (in his own words), "a sanctuary for grumpy Scottish simracers @Lin1876."

Looking forward to some good close racing here.

Hello all.

I'm not new, but at the same time I've been pre-occupied since I was last here. Hello again.

Are the same folk around?

I'd like to start getting back into some online racing rather than just SP nonsense so could only think of one place to go to find it :)

Hello guys,

I'm new here.
I've started simracing in 2011.
I'm using now a Logitech G25 with a Thrustmaster TH8A shifter on a custom rig with a Recaro seat.
My PC is old and crappy and my internet is almost usless, since we moved from the middle of the city to the "outskirts".
I gave up competing in official simracing events, since my internet is slow (year 2015). Till that time, I competed in many events and leagues.
Some of you maybe know me from TPS and RD, HSO or SRU.

;)

I mostly prefer oldschool touring cars from the 60s to the 90s. I use H shifter with manual clutch...no driving aids.

So um yeah... I’m not exactly new but I saw a lot of notifications from this section so for those that don’t know me, hi I’m luke and I’m terrible at sim racing.

Now for the odd bit, I am looking to revive the team Two Tone Racing but under a slightly different name (I am aware anbout the pleb club thing... cheers student finance) but I’m not really looking at getting back into competitive sim racing, I may be in for the odd club race here and there but for the most part my aim is to be a resident team manager and that’s it
