My friend has put up his site for his new online racing league
Basically it is structured online racing, using Nascar 2003 with patches for Bathurst, Phillip Island etc installed, Grand Prix Legends with tracks patches as well as the Australian V8 Supercar physics for the AV8S series.
Races are run every 4 weeks or so, and are true racing conditions. ie. 2 hours in most cases. Bathrust ran for 6hrs 41mins on similar racing league a few weeks ago.
You will require a steering wheel, a few gig of HD space (dosnt need to be more than a 1.5ghz processor) and all patches files etc are available from the website.
You will need patience, and to read the Nascar manuals to learn how to set a car up for a track. Please note, these are SIMULATORS, not arcade games, so you will learn about bounce, rebound, camber, sway bars, aeros, fuel loads, tyre management, and in the case of GPL how many clutches to use, angle of drive, driveline ratios etc etc etc. Setups for each track will take a bit of work, and you will need plenty of practice time to learn the tracks, and get your times down.
You will also require a broadband internet connection, as said a bit of time, and some dedication.
However what you will get from it is a excellent real model experience, with great gaming against great people. These simulators offer a sensational feel, and the competition is red hot. Great stuff if you genuinely enjoy driving!
LANS are held near Dandenong Vic for practice/beer/fun and racing will be conducted via a Linux server utilising Nascars multiplayer modules.
So check out the site, sign up, have a look around, and if your game, join the league!
