OVGMX5 is our weekly Mazda MX-5 Cup Car racing series in iRacing organized by Aspirations and Synodontisman. Races are every Sunday at 18:00 GMT.
If you want to join, please sign up on the Google Document.
Three races, 15 minutes each. Standing start, unless we want to do rolling starts instead.
About an hour before 18:00 GMT, the server will go up. The server name will be WAT: OVGMX-5, and the password will be 4ch.
Don't drive like a South American or Iberian, and pay attention to the flags. Being slow isn't being an Iberian, ignoring every car around you and spinning out every third corner is.
Don't flip Marko Tulska. Unless it's Flip Marko Tulska Day or if flipping him would be really funny.
Clearly ignoring the "Don't drive like a South American or Iberian" rule and creating un disastre@Charlotte Roval, you've decided an incident limit is needed.
At 12x you will be awarded a drive-through penalty. Every 4x after that will be another drive-through penalty.
(assuming i implement this anyway lol) Each week will feature another car of a different class in the race along with the Mazda MX-5. It'll usually be a car you have to pay for.
YOU CANNOT CHANGE WHAT CAR YOU'VE JOINED THE SERVER WITH. THE CAR YOU JOIN THE SERVER WITH WILL BE THE CAR YOU RACE WITH, SO DECIDE BEFOREHAND AND DON'T WHINE LIKE A CUNT AND CRASH EVERYONE WHEN IT'S TOO HARD TO DRIVE JUST GTFO.

Other Possibly Helpful Things Haphazardly Written Down
Set your wheel torque in the options (Google if you don't know) and hit F9 when you're out on track. After a few minutes a button will show up that says Auto. Click it and it will automagically set your FFB to the highest it can go before clipping.
Set your brake force factor to 0 if you're using a load cell.
Using any sort of clutch/shifting assists besides anti-stall is slower than no assist/only anti-stall. If you don't have/want to use a clutch pedal you can bind a button to clutch which is just as fast as using a pedal.

Try not to lay into the ABS too heavily, it's slower.
