  1. Reserved for leaderboard. Last update 27 June 8:00 GMT Good luck guys!
  2. Prior to each F1 race we will hotlap the same track as the real life drivers to see how we compare. TImes will be recorded using the in game steam friends leaderboard. Each challenge will run until Midnight GMT on the Sunday of the race. The next challenge will start on the following Monday. Thanks to Ahmad for the great idea The next Challenge is: Challenges > Hotlap: Williams FW37 @ Austria GP (Red Bull Ring) Note: This is an addon car. You can get it here: Car: http://www.racedepartment.com/downloads/vrc-2015-williams-fw37.14491/ This Challenge is open immediately and will expire Midnight GMT on the 8th July -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Rules and Requirements: Game Settings Launcher settings for ABS and TC must be set to FACTORY. (once on track you can change the settings if the car allows it) Stability OFF, Fuel ON Penalties must be enabled Before you can start posting laps you need to do two things (if you haven't already) 1. Activate the in game Friends Leaderbord. To do this, take to the track and move your mouse to the right hand edge of the screen to activate the apps sidebar. From here select the Friends Leaderboard (it's near the bottom) You should then see a leaderboard similar to this. You can drag it round to a suitable position. Once the app is active it will log your laps and list those of your Steam Friends. 2. In order to get an accurate set of comparison of times you will need to add people to your friends list. You should be able to find all of us at the SimHQ Motorsports Steam Group. Just send out friend invites to those taking part and when they accept you can see their times on your leaderboard. I have most people already, but if you want to enter, please add me as a friend first (if you haven't already), then post a time. I'll periodically post my leaderboard in the following post so you can all see who you need to befriend. Hopefully after a short while we'll all be bosom buddies. Have Fun!!! The challenge is open immediately and will expire midnight GMT on the 8th July
  3. This challenge has now closed. Congrats to Archii for topping the board! Thanks to all who posted times. Next combo will be up later today or tomorrow am.
  4. We're sticking with the Exos for this one. Partly because it seems quite popular and also because i've had zero time to test any other mods lately. Reserved for leaderboard. Last Update 26 June 15:00GMT
