We've got Dave, Stelvio, and me in North America and Mark and Tom in Australia.  Somebody is going to lose sleep over this!   :rasp:

So I need to know your availability.  How many shifts do you want, how long can you drive before needing relief, and the hours when you are NOT available.  

As soon as everyone checks in, I'll put a schedule together and get it to you.   :thumbup:

C'mon guys, we're going to need some help here  :blink:  Maybe I should email the membership to see if we can scare anybody up?

What was the official start time? Would be great if we could at least get some volunteers for 'spotter' duty.
O.K. John. So...when ARE we gonna cut and run??

I don't have NR2003 let alone the GTP mod, but I'll be cheering for the ADC team :banana: .

Good luck chaps! :clap2:  :clap2:

IIRC Phil, you don't need a copy of NR2003 to watch it on NRTV and this is the bit which made it such a great team event.
As for availability, I'll be unconscious between 11:00 GMT and 18:00 GMT but would prefer no longer than 2 hours per stint behind the wheel.

Yes Phil, and all the ADC membership, we could really use some help in the spotter department.  Getting the software setup is easy and the job itself is really quit fun.

Of course, we could still use another driver or two, as well.   ;)

I have to apologize, too.  Work has been kicking my butt lately and I just haven't been as on top of this as I should be.  Thanks to Mark for thinking about the big picture.   :)   Spotters are a critically important part of the team.  And the pay is fantastic, too...  :rasp:   hehe!

I think you can get it from here...and you'll need Track Pack 4 which has Lemans on it also.

Just type 'NRTV' in the search box and voila!
I think we used Teamspeak last time as I couldn't get Ventrilo to work...don't know which one to use this time around?

Phil, if you can find Bernd, he can, ahem, track you down a copy  ;)

Anyway, real stuff, I've got an rFactor league race about the same time the race starts, so I'd prefer taking my stints anywhere from mid-morning through the day 'till near the finish (depends if I want sleep or not  :blink: ) in Australian Eastern Daylight Time. I think that works out to be, say, 21:00 GMT through to about 09:00 to 10:00 GMT. I'll do as many stints as required, and then some.  :P

I've got it on the old computer.  I'll dig it out tonight.

Let's try to hold a Teamspeak session to test everyone's setup with that app.  Maybe Saturday before the GTL Big Race?

I'm sorry to hear that, Bernd; would have loved to have you in again. But life can get in the way sometimes...

Btw, James - I found my file. No need to look further.  I'm going to start by emailing anyone on that list that hasn't signed up for this year's event, to see if they are interested.

Actually, turns out I don't have a league race that day, so that means I'm available for the entire race. :)

Sorry, guys.   :(

I too have RL excuses for this particular weekend.   :bash:

Best of luck to Team ADC.  Keep the shiny side up and keep her between the ditches.

Oh, yeah, watch out for those thugs otherwise known as 'the fast guys'.

:gpler:
