As many of us are now in lockdown we are going to run some fun races on non-race nights. Nothing better than GPL to alleviate boredom.
Can't promise something every night - please watch this thread for details. There will be a mix of mods & mainly tracks that we all know & love (or loathe).
All drivers are welcome. Attend when you wish.
Free choice of chassis but to keep things interesting the faster Pro's are requested not to use the fastest cars.
To get things under way we are starting on Thursday 26th with 67 cars at Zandvoort.
Race will be hosted from IGOR on UKGPL10.
No password.
30 minutes qualifying starting at 21.00 UK time, followed by a 30 minute race.~
Unlimited Resets / no Stop & Go.
Racing Etiquette - usual high standards please.

Thanks for doing this Bill, I think that events like this will become more and more beneficial for our members as time goes on.
Members from across Europe ( especially Italy )who are already into their 3rd week of lockdown and are probably getting a little stir crazy, have already said that meeting other people, albeit virtually, is something that they look forward to.
I even ran into Hristo Itchov in a UKGTL race last night ( he is still infuriatingly fast!!), so people are looking to simracing for some enjoyable distractions in these troubled times.

PS. I will give some thought about the Joe Shaw Trophy series that is due quite soon. Unless anyone else has a cunning plan?

Leon Forst aka Josefine Thiel

We are happy about every honest GPL driver and treat anybody with respect.
But if a person kids us about a little girl that needs help and keeps me busy for hours and days, that is a darned cheek!
You played this game in GeLi before and are well known there...

If you declare here open and reliable who and what you are, we will think about it.

Not happy Axel

We usually restrict 'chat' during races so as not to cause a distraction.
In the current circumstances with restrictions on social movement please feel free to use chat to catch up / encourage / abuse fellow drivers.
I'm sure there is an option somewhere to turn off chat messages whilst on track if it causes anyone a problem.

A great idea Bill  Grin. There is no championship and no points, just racing for the hell of it.

 The Coronavirus Cup is for fun and friendship, let's make it social and special !!!

Thanks for organising Bill and the event was well attended for an ad hoc race.

WARNING!! I might try and use Phil's server to host a race tomorrow....I will do a dummy run first when Igor is quiet lol.

I can't do tomorrow & organizing a race every day is a bit intense.

Clive - you are welcome to run something tomorrow. Might be easier to start a new post.

I'll try & sort something for Saturday. Maybe a 65 mod event.

We are planning a 65 mod race for Saturday evening. Everyone welcome.


Look on IGOR for UKGPL4
IP Address for direct connection and Teamspeak is:  77.102.28.179
Password: ISOFUN

Brands Hatch 67 circuit
65 mod
30 laps
Qualifying start  9:00 UK time ( the server might be available earlier for chatroom  Wink )
Race start @ 9:30

Intermediate damage

All Pro drivers ( you know who you are!! ) to use the Brabham BT7 or the Cooper only.
Plus all Pro drivers must complete a SnG between laps 1- 10 and another between laps 20-30, just to slow them down a little    Wink

Am drivers have free choice of car.
Unlimited Shift-R for all NO SnG for resets, so the only cars in the pits will be BT7's and Coopers.

Because the isolation around Covid-19 might last for a few months we are going to try using TEAMSPEAK in the fun races, so that we can shout polite abuse at each other.
If we can get things organised we will trial it in this race.
Please keep your language moderate and avoid bad language. Remember that we are doing this to alleviate boredom and isolation AND most importantly we are playing a game, so don't get too angry about stuff??

These races are all about having some fun with friends.  Wink

I am planning to do the race. Where is the link for teamspeak? I don't have it. Also just worked out that we do not have a headset with a microphone. So I might just listen in.
