ART is a expanding group of like minded sim racers, who have been racing in PCars for the last year and a half.
We host regular fun nights, as well as weekly Endurance and League events.

We have multiple events lined up for the release of PCars 2, replicated some real life events such as Indy 500, Daytona 24 hours, Road to Le Mans and RallyX Events.
After these events, we are planning on running 2 leagues again, which will be announced shortly.

We have a Discord server, where you can find a friendly and active environment, where we talk games, music, Motorsport and more.

Feel free to come and join in some of the fun nights, these will be held every Tuesday at 7pm BST, for a mix of cars and tracks.

My POV from the ART vs RWB event this evening.
Massive thank you to all of the RWB for having us, a great race all around, just a shame I am way too easily distracted.

Small edit, it appears I didn't move my mic far enough away from my mouth during the race. Yes I'm a spoon :)

Looking forward to the next one :)

Fantastic event, especially given the MP issues we had to work through. 31 drivers on the grid for the off and 26 or so finished. Passion skill and respect all over the place. More please :)

Keep it as clean as possible, but don't take it too seriously. Tonight's race is more a testing session, but we have a fair split of LMP2s/GTEs, so just need to keep an eye out for the faster cars coming through. Most of the time the faster cars will announce if we are coming up on back markers anyway, to make it easier.

I'm slow and always get lapped but I understand racing etiquette. If I'm home from work in time and there's room available, I'll try and get on if that's ok

You and rwb have rating restrictions, which exclude clean sensible lower ranked drivers such as myself.

Hamdridge
21-10-2017, 10:04
Whenever we run the License retrictions, its is fairly low as not everyone has got above a U license yet. Fun nights on Tuesdays are always unrestricted. Yesterdays testing was on a F100 limit IIRC.

Thanks to the RWB guys for helping us test the server, with only 1 disconnect, no other issues.
Pictures below were from 2 of the races we tried.

Last nights endurance race.
Interesting end results, we had a few LMP2s have game issues, hence the slight madness.

Good race guys.. Didn't feel like I deserved 2nd in the LMP 2's as I hadn't put in nearly enough practice and was real surprised to find I was pretty much on race pace.. All came down to a small error and a mis-calculated fuel load eh Hamdridge? ;) hehe

Honestly though, I really think these races should be held up to some of the negativity pushers on this forum that claim the game is unplayable because of bugs, we've now successfully run two big cross-club events, several Saturday feature races and are in the middle of a short and fun mini-league.. The racing is great and is only going to get better! :applouse:

Tough race on many fronts and sterling effort by everyone yet again. Better get the thinking caps on for the next one :)

Unfortunately my game crashed to desktop with only 4 laps to go, but still had a really enjoyable race up til then even if I was a bit off pace. Annoying to get another points deduction on my license due to a game error. Looking forward to the next inter-club battle. :D

Cant wait for Season 3 to start. Group C wasn't my favorite tbh, but the GT3 league is fun.

GTE looks like a strong league and definitely going to take the new DLC Porsche in the Vintage league, which looks effin' great BTW. Ill drop you a message on Discord for my GTE choice, put me down for the Porsche 911 RSR for the VTC please.

Keep up the great work, lads :encouragement:
