    What kind of server hardware are you running these on? What CPU load does it see during the races? Curious if the Azure server I have in Singapore could handle it

    Hi Mr Git. Not sure if the result generating went well. At least the Race result does not seem to be right. I did not start at P5 (did finish at 23 though). Also my mate Jeroen Jongen did not start at 39. He did finish 13th though.

    Xeon cpu, 16gb ram, 2tb hdd space...but its on an unmetered gigabit network and that's the thing that will cause you issues the most on an azure server as you'll need a lot of ul bandwidth.

    Cheers, guessing at least two cores? I’m running a dual core E5-2673 v3 CPU, 7GB RAM 126GB SSD server, also gigabit connection.

    Do you know what CPU load it gets?

    Hi, can you give the exact date and time when the next race will start?
    Are there any requirements for racing with you (like SA/...)?

    Didn´t find any notes about that :)

    Thanks in advance!

    Morning boys 'n' girls!

    BigGrid day arrives and don't forget, tonight server opens 30 minutes earlier at 7:30pm and the race is 90 minutes long (not the usual 60).

    Also,there's no fixed pitstop rule in place, so pit for fuel/tires when you need it!

    As the race is longer than usual, there's a higher possibility of maybe getting lapped, so I'll just remind you of some words from Mike Nobel on how you should act...

    "'If you are a backmarker and you are about to get lapped, please keep on following the regular racing line. The faster car behind you will find a place to overtake. When he starts the overtake do not block him, or do not drive defensively. Another thing you can do (increases safe driving ) when the car behind you is very close, is lifting the throttle BEFORE braking zones. You do not lose a lot of time, and the car behind you can safely attempt the overtake.
    Another situation if you are in a battle for position and your about to be lapped by the leaders, you are NOT required to slow down / give position to the faster guy behind you. Only when the guy lapping you attempts a overtake manoeuvre you NEED to give space and let him through.

    Also, not braking on random / dangerous / corner exits just to let the guy behind you through. Slow down on straights instead by lifting the throttle slightly.

    Be predictable, not unpredictable."

    Joined the 40 SA one - not such a big gid there. 3 all in all. I lasted a little over an hour :) Gotta get the last 4 SA points so I can join the real big grid :) Thanks for arranging.

    Another great event and fun with some clean fights (apart from some hiccups and my inconsistency)!

    I much more prefer this 90min format, we can do it on Misano as well

    90 mins is nice because it brings in the pitstop. However, if the start time remains 1930uk I'm out because kids not in bed. Can understand why it's not layer though for the EU timezone. Ill just go for the CP races instead.

    @MrGit@Twitch. In this last clip you mention that i caused some collisions. Shame if this is the case. I was under the impression of having raced as safely as possible. But qualifying in the #40's, starting #3 because of restart I knew there was heat coming. I now know how Kubicek must have felt in the 2019 season :).
    Did defend my place on the track without being an *** (at least that was my intention and how I see it). In the cycane I was punted from behind twice which resulted in a heavenly damaged car. Did decide to finish the race albeit with a car that could do barely 2.00 laps and hat some strange breakouts if turned in to fast. Consistency was impossible now.
    So sorry if I caused any problems. Would like to know where for I am honestly not aware of it. Had a great (learning) experience anyway. Thanks for that.

    Wake up everyone, i wanna ask you something!

    A few people have asked about maybe having a 2nd ACC BigGrid event on the weekends as a lot of you can't make the Wednesday one (time difference,work commitments ect...), so....how would you all feel about one tonight as a test of turnout?

    If it's popular then i'll make it a permanent thing the Sunday after the 26th (my inter-community challenge event @ Spa), so if you want it, let me know! Times/pw will be as usual....race length would be 60 minutes /w compulsory pitstop with a change to match the CP server rules of tire change but no refuelling (so starting with enough fuel for the full 60 mins).....what say you all?

    ....Ok, after checking in discord it's on for tonight, please check the OP for start time + pw...track is Paul Ricard.

    Spread the word please!
