    Time for some action on the track, and slightly off it too. Racing line and all that. Why? Because Race LAN.

    Event will run from 10.30am to about 9.00pm. Setup from 10.00am.

    It's a bring your own PC event, and having a wheel is recommended. Double desks are allowed each in case anyone is bringing bigger computers / multi-screen setups, but no seating plan here since there's plenty of space for theme days.

    Attendance is £5.00.

    Planned Schedule:

    10.30 - 11.15 - Live For Speed Demo *Make sure to be running the latest version, create an account on https://www.lfs.net/ and remember your sign-on details.
    11.25 - 12.35 - F1 2013 - Monza, Hungaroring Grand Prixs
    12.35 - 14.30ish - Lunch and Singapore GP
    14.30 - 15.40 - F1 2013 - Singapore Marina Bay, Spa
    15.50 - 17.30 - DIRT 3 - Rallycross, Rally Stages
    17.30 - 18.20 - Dinner
    18.30 - 19.20 - DIRT 3 - Fun Stuff, Mini Challenge etc
    19.30 - 20.40 - Flatout 2 - Races, Darts, Bowling, Derby

    Music:

    More of a quieter backing track a lot of the time, since sound is typically more important in these games, but will base it on the list from last Race LAN - http://open.spotify.com/user/graemekustom/playlist/3Y44lj3Iq0tWqx5HuZKBQX

    If you want to add any tracks, there's a Race LAN Suggestion collaboration playlist here - http://open.spotify.com/user/graemekustom/playlist/3t2rFzzcV6MZ2lEIU8GcWD or pop up a message up here with any requests (individual songs rather than whole albums though)

    Shall we stick with the usual old favourites here?

    DIRT 3, F1 2013, Live for Speed, Flatout 2

    Quick warm up on absolute drift?

    I would *love* a run on iRacing, maybe a custom race on the RUF GT3s or BMW Z4 cars, but it means people having a subscription to the game, and having to buy those cars as additional content. I think maybe me, Antland, Derek... have active subs, but would come down to really just if the majority were up for it.

    Unless there's a freebie sub offer around, I don't think it's reasonable to expect the rest of the group to subscribe for one use.

    Maybe would throw it in if there was time, but allowing enough time for a few runs on each game and the inevitable set up time in between (and watching the grand prix) I think we'll be okay as it is.

    I was possibly going to borrow the racing setup from the shop, as my PC at home is still in breadboard form, but just depends on whether I can get the time to assemble it together later or not.

    But admittedly it's probably easier and better for me to just borrow that, and enjoy 3 screen racing goodness :)

    I was planning triple screens as well but with the numbers I don't think it's possible, unless you're happy to move some boxes and open up another row.

    Sure, can have 2 of the lower blue tables set up as well which will give 16 spaces, so that means if say 3 people take 2 spaces we've still got tons of room.

    Only other thing we need to watch - DIRT and Flatout are 8 players per server, so we'll maybe need to split things about there. Busier than usual for Race LAN this time!

    Morning all,slight crisis can't find my v plastic clamp for my thrustmaster,got the screw but not the clamp. Made one out of wood which seems just as good but if anyone has one going spare it would be welcomed. Usually have it hard mounted so not normally need it. But if all else fails will just buy a wheel borrow the clamp then return it. Argos should be a good bet.
