Quoted from my Reddit Post ( http://www.reddit.com/r/pcars/comments/36ivpj/pc_who_wants_to_build_a_project_cars_club/ ), but including here for visibility:

Hi All!.

Been playing the game since launch on my newly built (AMD - sigh) gaming rig and really enjoying it! I have migrated from GT5 and 6 on the PS3 (now sold) with my (quite old but it works just fine) Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel. I am by no means a pro but can get around the track!.

One thing I loved about GT5 was that I had a community of people to play with, rarely did I need to venture in to public servers. I have seen a few people posting tournaments etc up on here - which is great. I look forward to joining /u/yetteh [1] on Saturday for the UKTC - a 6 race, 6 week season in GT3 cars.

What I would like to build, is more than just a race series/tournament. I would like to build a community/club, whilst race series and tournaments would be ran and included, there would also be challenges, track days and other general sessions for members to get involved in (think demolition derby, economy runs etc).

My proposal for the club would be to have initiation criteria, for example, anyone who wants to be a member would need to have a reasonable internet connection, a headset/mic (and basic English skills) and the ability to drive cleanly (or willingness to learn).

Any member (if the club became popular, this may need restricting somewhat) could then post challenges or sessions to our club forum/subreddit/somewhere. There would be an agreed title prefix and password for any sessions hosted.
The possibilities are endless for this, but firstly, I would like to know if anyone is interested. I am happy to drive this forward (see what I did there) if there is appetite for such a community, from the community.

If you are interested, please just make a post below stating that - also, if you are willing to help lay out rules and other 'admin' tasks - let me know that too! I am UK based, but do not want to exclude on region - if we get enough members, there could be events at all hours.

Hi Baswaldo, I have now created a Steam Group - Project CARS Drivers Club.
The group is closed access but if you add me as a friend on Steam (howgudami) (and let me know your steam name on here). I will add you to the group.
If you could participate in the discussion board and help outline some foundations for the club, it would be much appreciated.
I am looking forward to the first events/meets/races we schedule!

I like this idea, I'm fairly new to sim racing and would love to play with others so I could learn and get the hang of it. My steam name is Smhuele in HD.

As per the above message to Baswaldo - Add me, I will invite you to the group. I look forward to racing with you.

EDIT: SmileinHD, I have accepted your request and invited you to the group. Let me know if you need anything.

Sounds good. Feel free to add me to your Steam friends list. My Steam ID: OperatorWay

I don't particularly want/need regularly-scheduled league-type events, but it's good to have a list of like-minded racers for running casual/friendly lobbies at random/convenient times (instead of jumping in random public lobbies full of wreckers).

I'm happy to race in most cars/classes on most tracks, but I don't enjoy long endurance events.

I'm not bothered by how fast or slow anyone is, as long as they're easy to get along with & they make a genuine effort to avoid colliding with other cars.

sounds great. am interested... just i need to work on my setup. been trying to put off reformatting and redoing my desk here... been a few years now of clutter and remnants of games. trying to play a little with my pad but am gonna dust off my sidewinder M$ wheel and get me a wireless dongle so i can use it on the PC. my first racing sim was the old World of Outlaws sprint game back when it first came out on only the PC a decade or so ago i think. really loved racing organized events and getting to know those i raced with. my last racing was forza 3 i think it was (why i bought the wheel) but i hated trying to race on the 360 with all the children and gits. ID is "MadDogE134" so add me if you wish and i will accept and keep tabs on it. i try to race clean... as best i can since i don't care to look in the rear view and i will cram the inside corners if there is room but that is competitive racing. but i won't ram you from the rear if at all possible and i don't get mad when someone swaps paint with me in the turns... that is the nature of the sport. so if you don't mind having a racer that would be better off running shine... then i am game. cheers

im definitely interested in this because i could use all the community help to help me tune my vehicle to my needs. ill add you to steam as well and please add me in the steam group

don't get me wrong on the paint thing... i DON'T drive dirty but true racing IS a contact sport and if you leave the door open... i will try to stick my foot in to keep you from shutting it. also about the rear view thing... i am more like the bloke in Cannonball Run... "what behind me is NOT important" so i would not lie and say i am a 'clean' racer like most... i am just being honest. i am competitive and i am NOT about to just let someone have my position unless i am crippled and non-competitive... then i will get out of the way. like i said i don't play dirty but i am not mister nice guy either. cheers

Hey guys,

I've been looking for a decent bunch of guys to play with online etc, If any of you guys are interested i have a Teamspeak that you're more than welcome to use. Even if you want to chill out on there and grab a few more people who play Project Cars, more the merrier.

I refuse to play atm until i have a steering wheel as using my controller is getting to me...

Great - add me on steam if you like (howgudami)

I just posted a thread in our group asking if anyone had a TS server 'lying around'. What capacity is it? might be perfect if you don't mind!.

I will join, but must wait until I return to New Zealand as I'm in Australia at the moment and will be for the next month. If I join on this lappy it will throw a few things out so will wait until I use my main gaming desktop computer when I get home. Great idea and hope it works out for everyone.

Sorry to be a pain all. But can you confirm if you have been added to the group or not. I have been AFK for today and yesterday and informally asked some of the existing members to monitor these threads - so I am now not sure if you will have been invited by someone else.

Cheers :).

I'll jump in on this. Haven't raced in a ton of online yet but it's one of the main reasons I bought the game so I'd like to get some clean (aka: non-pub) multi-player racing going.

I'm in now, thanks for the invite.

Probably won't be on this weekend with family things going on but im looking forward to some races!

Will there be specific races organised as a long weekend? would love to do some GT3 practice, qualies & racing.

I guess regards teamspeak mentioned earlier if we are on each others steam friends we can have a group voice chat within steam i had 6 in a group last night, voice quality was fine and easy to manage with anyone without a mic able to drop text chat messages in too.

23-05-2015, 08:38
No problem,

We will be organising a few races and tournaments, they're up for discussion at the minute in the steam group forums. You'll see we're going through the rules set, what people would like to see etc.

We've had a few races in the last couple of days and they've been enjoyable!

We have a teamspeak set up aswell. All details will be in the steam group aswell ;)
