Welcome to SimRacing.org.uk! In case you haven't already figured it out, Wikipedia has an article on SimRacing.

Please have a look through the rest of this topic, then at the other topics in this board, and also the stickied posts at the top of the Announcements forum.

Don't be afraid to browse around the various boards in the forum to get a feel for what we do and who we are.

Here at SRou, sportsmanship and consistency are valued more highly than outright pace.

As a rule of thumb, you should be able to turn consistent laps within about 10% of the SRou lap record in whatever class you're driving, so that (for instance) if the SRou lap record for a track is 1 minute 40 seconds, if you can consistently do 1:50s or better without falling off the track every few laps you should be fine.

When joining your first races here, remember the old adage: first, drive the car. We see a lot of new drivers who immediately start 'overdriving', trying to match the times of far more experienced members. You will learn very little if you keep going off and you will make yourself very unpopular among the regulars. Instead, stick to a pace you can sustain.

Expect to get lapped in your first few races, often multiple times, especially in Endurance events. Don't panic! Be predictable - stick to your normal racing line, don't lock your brakes, and allow the faster car to work its way past. Whatever you do, don't brake or even lift off on a straight with another car directly behind you!

Welcome to SRou and good luck!

Once you're ready to join in, the best place to introduce yourself is probably in the event announcement topic for the first race you intend to compete in, both to say hello, and so that whoever imports the results after the event will recognise your forum name if it's different to your race name.

You can find a list of the events coming up at the top right of each page. Most things on the SimRacing.org.uk site are either clickable or have tool tips (small strips of information that come up when you hover you mouse cursor over the item), and many have both. If it looks interesting - point your mouse at it... and then click it. Wink
