We drive a spring and a fall season consisting of 9 races each. At the end of the year we drive a championship GP race. Highest season score + GP score represents full season result for each driver. (9 + 1 races)

Any and all are welcome regardless of rank or pace , we expect fair play and good sportsmanship. Beyond that its first to the finishline. Gentlemen , start your engines.

(NEWSFLASH feb 15th : We will move to a PRO LONG format starting from the fall season 2018. That means no more shift+r. We will also be running Olaf Lehmans dirtgear patch so this will be a requirement in order to join. Hopefully we can make it available for download from our website. It can aslo be found here in the archives under the name "pitstop7(dg)".

It will be tested until august and if it works ok it will be implemented. This enables a repair option under the condition that the driver can make it to the pits. It also introduces tirewear and dirty tires effect into the races.

FPS: 60     Timezone: GMT+1
