Only one place behind Neil Cragg!

Thought I'd take the opportunity to remind you all how cool vrc is and with the oople club is now pushing close to 100 members and with regular races you really have no excuse not to come and play :)

Does it help real racing?
I've found it more a bit of fun tbh, tho not done much real racing to compare how I'm doing over winter due mainly to the fact our club only having had 4 meets since October!

If nothing else it helps keeps your thumbs moving :) and I do think it helps with race pressure as daft as that sounds.. I'll try explain, you might have 1 final a week in real life if your lucky, on vrc I can run 5 finals in a night then 5 more tomorrow etc
Multiplayer races with collisions turned on are my favourite way of playing.

Will have to see once the outdoor season starts if I'm any better or not, last time I did regionals I was f3 2 yrs ago so not slow but never super quick either and certainly not a second behind Cragg after 5 mins lol
I do believe I won the bury winter champs this year but not much of a marker to go off tbh lol
If I am or not doesn't really matter though, it's great fun on its own!

I'd say that You need about 100 worth of graphics card and a multi core processor as a minimum, the better your pc though the more graphics options you can have turned on and the better your experience will be!
Best advice download the free to play program, turn off shadows, smoke, dust etc turn down the graphics options to minimum and check your frame rate, then increase things slowly to find a setting your happy with.

Ive got my subscription back on and enjoying 8th, however padova and fear farm are dodgy tracks with the perspectives of the camera so unfortunately I avoid them.

am I too late to join the series? Id like to do it but dont think im able to now.

there also seems to be a lack of competitions open, i find my self doing time trials more than anything as 'official' races are only for one track per one class a week.
