Yes I know it's Silverstone

Round 1 of the Cortina Cup take us to Cheshire, England and Oulton Park (Island Layout)

The track is known for changing gradients which creates blind crests and some very tight corners creating many passing opportunities....if you're brave enough.

It's been a staple of British motorsport since the 1950, and even hosted non-work championship F1 races for many years between 1954 and 1982.

This should create some interesting racing throughout the field, and many impressions of Fast and Furious Tokyo drift will be seen.

Race Night Schedule (NZT):
[20:00] - Official Practise
[20:55] - Drivers Briefing + Grids Drawn
[21:00] - Racing Commences

4x 15 Minute heats, drawn by kart/speedway heat format (everyone gets a front/mid/back grid)

Driving Aids:
Traction Control - 0
Anti Lock Brakes - 0

Have fun guys, I missed the endurance and was hoping to start tonight but I did something to my back on the weekend.. I did a few laps today and it was enough to tell me to give it a rest. Better to give it a rest then not be able to sit in my sim for longer :(

Last night was epic fun!

I've not enjoyed sim racing that much since the shift to rF2 which meant no HistorX mod, but last night changed that.
Perfect mod, perfect track _b

Looking forward to next week.

Thanks everyone, some super fun racing with a bunch of different names.

The definite highlight was the brake markers being taken out at the hairpin and subsequently 10 cars all missing their braking at once.

To the new names, I hope you enjoyed it and you'll be back.

Viking, you need some pies added man! :D

Was a heap of fun on Tuesday.
Didn't expect to see 4 wide given how thin that track was.
Just couldn't quite put all the corners together on the same lap for a 41 :D

Unfortunately I'm out of town for round 2.
Have fun, and I'll see ya for round 3.
