That's some bad luck, is it under warranty?

I also was experiencing issues, trying to run some AC my PC decided to update, which did not end well. Ended up reinstalling windows, I formatted everything which I wanted myself, but no more saved setups from other guys nor the saved FFB settings, so that'll need some fiddling :P

Is the server up yet?  I could not find it.

It is password protected, have you got the option selected to exclude password protected servers?

Still nuthin'. :(

Er, stuck at work can't check. @Darren_Blythe will need to confirm, but I'm guessing he is guts deep in his rig trying to sort out a gfx card at the moment. Can anyone else find the server?

OK chaps, pls make sure you are on v1.1 of the track as per the link in OP. I tried to get on and found I had the 1.0 version and got the error 'Checksum Failed'.

Yep it seems I have a lot of learning still to do around here but the track/car combo was great imo, lets keep it up and organise some more races soon.

That was a lot of fun. This was my first race on a private server.  It's nice to race with people who know what they're doing for a change.

I will try and dig up a microphone for next time.  I'm not sure who it was that went off on Rollercoaster and knocked me off the track, they apologized and couldn't tell them "no worries". :) 

I was very glad Darren could join, I was worried his GFX troubles would keep him sidelined.

I torpedoed someone on a rejoin. Was a bit disoriented didn´t know where the track was and all sudden I was in the middle of the black stuff. Good fun I have been lazy with the practise so was still experimenting how to drive that car. I did it best the first race second I was going more sideways then forward and destroyed the gearbox. Third I just couldn´t get last corner right overheating the tires and forgetting to brake at the top of the hill.

Good fun yesterday. Thanks to @Bokononist for idea and @Darren_Blythe for getting server up.

During practice I was able to get my laptimes lower, but I have hit the limit at 2:00. My fastest race lap was 2:00,03. I really wanted break that barier but no luck.

Race 1 was clean and controlled. But in Race 2 and 3 I had many offs. Not sure if it was from lack of concentration or maybe I was pushing too hard to get closer to @archii16's pace.

Thanks to Bokononist for giving me a kick up the backside to get this going.  Despite the short notice it was good fun.  Thanks to those who managed to make it.

It's been a hectic year for me so that was the first time i've driven in anger for months. Forgot how much i enjoyed it.

I'm out of town for a few days at the end of this week but when i get back we'll get some proper organized racing going to take us through the winter months. :)

Apologies for not making it. Was determined to get the new Donington update released over the weekend, and although I'd hoped to get it out the door in time for a bit of practice and some racing it was never likely to happen.

I got caught with a suprise in both races, where people were braking in places I expected the least :) For example, the last corner, i never really brake there, only coast, and if I brake, its a tiny bit on the downhill section. That was 1 massive difference, the other one was after the back straight, the uphill bit, where everyone braked alot earlier and harder then I used to do. Maybe try these things, and you will get sub 2 minutes :).

@archii16 , I'll take any advice you throw out.  Those 2 laps where I was chasing you were the only times I've ever broken 2:01 with this combo.  Then I made a mistake in turn 3, you disappeared into the distance soon after that. :D

Again if I find the time, I can upload a replay of a lap so you can watch closely what I am doing with the pedals(app), lines etc. At one point I was lapping 1:58s
