Hello I wanted to welcome people to my new group called NACRA or North American Casual Racers Association, we have setup a proboards forum so you can come and join up! Here is the introduction from the board to get an idea:

"Welcome to the North American Casual Racers Association or NACRA. In simple terms this community is dedicated to bring together like minded racers who want to sit down and have some fun. We are mainly targeting gamers in North America but we will not restrict gamers from outside of NA. We aren't searching out for experience or skill level, rather, we are more concerned about members who want to have clean, fun races. This association isn't about winning or being the best(while it is nice!), its about building a network of people who like to play racing games for fun and in general like communicating with/helping one another. We will not require a specific amount of personal time to be a member, nor will we require skill levels, and we certainly will not create mandatory events (We all have lives!). To sum it up, this is about having quality, low stress, fun through CLEAN racing.

What do I mean by "clean" racing? Well I mean respecting the other racers in not only NACRA but across Xbox Live. So if you mess up and run someone off the track for whatever reason, you apologize or even wait up for the person you pushed off/wrecked. You as a racer don't intentionally cut the track or knock off other player to gain positions. If there is a much faster racer behind you, let them go around. This association isn't about winning, its about having fun with others.

This association was first created with Project CARS in mind but as new racing games come out, don't be surprised when the staff add categories for those games, also if any board member has a suggestion for games, you can gladly post in the appropriate board.

A few things to take away from this:
1. Race clean and with respect
2. No Required events, practice time, experience, or skill level
3. Most Importantly, have fun!

Don't Forget to make your display name your gamertag or at-least put it in your signature.

Again, Welcome and Enjoy Your Stay!"

Thank you and your welcome, seeing there was a successful UK group, I'd thought I would try to get something setup for people in the U.S. so that we have the same/close time zones! Can't guarantee how many people will join but won't know unless you try right?

Great idea Rockefelluh! That is exactly what I am hoping for, I don't want NACRA to be run by myself, but by the help and cooperation of the NACRA family and Project CARS community.

I'll also be trying to set up a meet and greet for people this weekend and thank you for everyone else that has signed up, excited to get to know people and have some fun!

Awesome! Arctic Cat ZRT ~ just wanted to wish you guys all the very best.

Great to see another new community form, if we get any guys from your geography stop by we'll be sure to give them your details.

It would be great to hold a time trial challenge weekend when we get settled down, if you guys are interested feel free to message me.
We may not be able to run in the same multiplayer lobbies but nothing stops us exchanging screen captures ;)

Good luck mate!

Sounds like a good idea! As I said before, good luck with your group!

I'd love to get on with you guys but I'll have to wait till a but later tonight. Should be anywhere between 8-9 till about 11. Trying to figure out how to set up something on the board for this kinda situation where it isn't a formal event but just a gathering for the night, not sure how I am going to do it yet.

Also while I am on lunch here I am going to post on NACAR board a meet and greet for this Saturday. I will also post a similar announcement on the project car's board under multiplayer events.

I have a ton of buddies that play forza but unfortunatly not many in the Pcars world which I greatly prefer and I'm looking for some guys to race with online as it's the only way to play online really, joining random lobbies gets you no where! Feel free to add me I'm 22 and have played these games as long as I can remember I have a wheel aswell GT:Saul93

Just a bump for this group.

We have a few leagues forming and getting ready to start soon, including a Formula A Saturday series that will run through the summer, a Ginetta Junior UK club and Cobra TransAm American Club getting started soon on weekday evenings.

There's also a fun group of people on pretty much every night running races of all classes across any tracks in multiplayer, some public, some private. There's a range of skills from mr. unbeatable, to mr. doughnuts but all of us out just to have a good time and do our best to keep it clean and within the lines.

Have a new weekend race series forming up. Class is being voted on through this week. No real specifics have been set yet, but I will be busting my butt to make this happen. Sign up for our forum and come take a look at our members section.

http://nacrassociation.proboards.com/

North American CASUAL Racers Association (NACRA) is always looking for players interested in a little organized racing and a lot of random public and private MP racing across all classes. Nearly every night there is a group of players getting together for racing across the spectrum offered by this game. Skill does not matter. If you like driving and want to have a good time with whatever playtime you have, come check out our forum, sign up, add some of our members to your Friends List and we'll do likewise. Our only requirement is that you race clean. Accidents happen and that's ok. Being an intentional wrecker is not allowed.

bump for the nacrassociation.proboards.com

Have our GT3 Saturday series in full swing now, will likely have some other class series starting up for weekdays soon. Come join us any given night, there's usually people online and we're always looking for respectful drivers to come have fun with us across all class and track types!

Another bump for our group.

Come check us out if you're looking for a casual place to hang out. We do have scheduled race events for the more serious minded racers, but also just random get togethers of whoever happens to be on and looking for people to play with. We'd love to have you!

Well our big Saturday GT3 series has finished up tonight, rankings can be found at http://nacrassociation.proboards.com/thread/76/saturday-gt3-race-series?page=1

Invitation to all to come check out NACRA! There's some details forming up on series' in the works. I personally have about a month of work to deal with but will be looking at building a new series sometime after that. Looking at LMP2, LMP1, single-car multiclass series, or multi-class schedule races with LMP+GT or something along those lines.
