Although the schedule and the race lengths are TBA, I was wondering if anyone here is interested in running an ADC team Season 6?

I'm as guilty as any for letting GTP die on the vine and it's such a blast to drive that it's a pity I haven't given it more attention, but if anyone here is interested maybe we can get a small team together to run the series this time.

Here's the link;

Let me know what you think if you are interested.

It looks like it conflicts with the America's GTL races.   :(

Thanks for the heads up Mog !!  :thumbup:

James,
When are the GTL races scheduled ?? I guess it is a bit too late to change our startime or day for racing GTPs, but we could make the proper arrangements for next season :)

Hey David !!! :clap:

The GTP races start at 24:30GMT on Mondays, 19:30EST and last for about 2 hours, 1 hours practice and 45/60 minutes race, so we have a problem with that schedule for sure.

I would say that, if there is enough interest among ADC members to race GTPs, we could change our day and agree about the startime for sure. Nowadays, we race one week NASCAR and one week GTPs, both on Mondays, but this could change. Just let me know :trink4:

Hope it was alright I posted the link over here Arturo.  I ran GTP in a couple of races with some ADC folks when WOSEC was running their endurance events so thought maybe someone would interested over here.

cheers.

I am interested

I'm not too comfortable with Neva Ring and Nurb1970 but there's time to practice.

I don't think this will take too much away from GTL although I would like to see James race.

Of course is ok to post the link here mog :)

Hey Anthony

This will be my first time at Neva Ring and I am also feeling a bit lost there, but I guess I will need more practice. About the Ring, well, I think it is a very special track that one should race once in a while :D

Anyway, if you can join us at any of the scheduled races, let me know. Just upload your car at the respective AtlasF1 forum :)

Hey fellas - I was wondering if anyone would mind if I ran under the ADC banner with the same paint scheme we used in previous events when I race the GTP races with Arturo?

Does anyone have any issue with that?  It's not that important, but maybe I can represent and provide a bit of PR for the club?

If no one objects, while I think I have the car skins at home, can someone upload them here so I can make sure I have the latest works of art.  I think Mark Casey and James Legault created the skins for the ADC #67 and #69 cars...i may need to chance the number so some instructions as to how to do that may be useful also.

That is, if I can even drive these damn things anymore. :):)

Good luck with the series Tracy.  Sorrry I can't race in Arturo's series. Just not a good fit with my schedule.

Here are the car skins. I believe they go into your /series/RDgtp folder. I don't have any skins for the /RDgtn folder for night racing, unfortunately. I hope someone can chime in regarding the number change. I've no clue how to do that. :D

Have fun,
Claro

Just wanted to throw this out there that we have 2 ADC Team cars available.  I'll be driving the #69 car and the #67 car is available (though we may need to change the number since that one is already taken).

Is anyone up for running the second ADC Team car, or maybe swapping out the driving duties?

Okay - for perhaps to make it easier - I have loaded an Excel spreasheet that, if any other drivers are interested in specific dates, you can just drop me an email and i'll add you to the date.

Here's a link to a pic of the current schedule - I only removed the off dates and remember th #67 car number may change as necessary.

You can contact me if you are interested in picking up any dates.

Cool - Thanks James.  Looking forward to tooling around with you..now I can finally go to someone for help.

I have updated the schedule linked below in case anyone else is interested in the remaining races.

AtlasF1 GTP Season 6 - ADC Team Schedule

As mentioned before, I think someone is running #67, so we may need to change the number.  I'll look into that more later.

FWIW - it was a fun race at Kyalami.  These cars can really be a workout to drive and I think I went off at The Bend more than once...good fun thought.

Is it only in the endurance events where the Sauber periodically looses gears?  I remember some of the races we did last year or so it seemed like we lost a gear or two nearly every race I was in.
