Hello from sunny (and not warm) Canada
« on: March 10, 2017, 09:23:54 pm »
Hi guys,

Kinda new to the sim racing scene. Recently decided to give it a shot and I've been trying to find a league that races on weekends at a normal time for me. That's where you lads come in.

Here's hoping my race craft improves, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy my entertaining noobish mistakes :)

I hope I can squeeze in the last race this weekend!

Welcome! I am a fellow Canadian. Glad you signed up and feel free to ask for help. Our fast guys are also nice and always willing to help. I lived in Barrie and Orillia for a while but am now in Vancouver.

Great! Another Canadian!

Welcome my friend, to the land of enchantment. Hold on I was reading the script from my other job. Welcome to the VRC. Please make sure to check out our rules and regulations before Sunday so you know what to do on track.

Glad to have another member! I know what it's like to be new and learning. See you on track. I'll be on the server tonight. I'm in California so you have the reference for time. Maybe anywhere from 7-10pm. But not the whole time dammit!

Mr Michael

Hey Triffy, if you are available sometime tomorrow, perhaps a few of us could run a mini race to get you used to traffic? it will take some of the stress out of the first race.

talent wise I am lower middle of the pack so I might be a good guage for you. We have some crazy fast guys that there is no shame in losing to, but we have a wide range of talent.

Welcome Triffy,

Always good to see new people around here. We have few off weeks before our next series with URD EGT mod starts. Feel free to look around in the forums and ask for advice if you feel you need one.

See you on track!

This must be the day the Canadians come out to play!
I grew up around Kingston Ontario, spent several years out west in Fort McMurray and Calgary, but now live in Boulder CO.
I am definitely a noobie, but I'm hoping to get on track and see how it all works. Got my wheel and rF2 set up but that's about it.
Looking for a place to play where I won't get smashed up by 12 year old kids every 5 minutes. :D
Hope to see some of you on track soon.

Is this Paul? I'm Tom and I think you were online with Michael, Mike and myself just a couple minutes ago. Could be a coincidence, but he was from Colorado too. Welcome anyway. Perfect timing as our season just finished!
