I drove GTL cars in Altbierbude servers for a long time in the past. The main reason was that there were always great quick 5 lap races every night. And a crowd of between 10 to 20 good drivers to go along. The recipe was: each server had around 1o tracks rolling one after another, with 20min practice, 10min qualification and a 5 lap race. At he end of the race the server advanced to the next track, with the same sessions as before .

And I miss those days, we had great fun track after track EVERY night. Even when someone was away for some time, we knew we'd always find great races when returning. But those days are over. Most of those guys, as in all other old sims servers, mooved to iracing, rfactor2, the new generation sims. And we can replicate that here, there arent 5 or 6 different class servers and 50 or 60 drivers distributed by them.

But we could have a similar formula for those interested in beeing able to join quick races if not every night at least with some regularity, a least 2 or 3 nights each week. Even one night each week if not possible other way.

If there were enough drivers interested in beeing able to have nights of quick races every week, what I would suggest is this:

- 3 rotating tracks loaded on the server. Admin choice or majority preference of participants

- For each track, a 20 or 30 minutes practice session, 10min qualif followed by a 5 laps race. At the end of the race the server advances to next track where participants have he same formula/sessions.

- We can use a thread in forum to schedulle the track meetings, to set days when enough drivers to race can or want to show up.

- Choice of cars would be restricted to the selection available in the server, and would be decided eachweek/month/according to preferences of the interested participants.

League races are great, but I'm sure that I'm not the only missing to be able to join a server after dinner and have great fun during 3, 4 or 5 5 laps friendly races.

Anyone interested in setting things up?

That would be cool but I can see it working only with slow and grippy cars like FormulaVee, FormulaFord, the ISI's rTrainer cars...

If it's just for fun, I'd also suggest rainy races at times. We have a great plugin called RFE Weather to simulate rain.

Well, I don't know if it's possible to have a dedivated 2nd server for these quick races. As I suppose it isn't, I was thinking on using the next race cars; the main difference would be that there would be more tracks on the server besides the one uploaded for the next race.

Besides the fun aspect, it would provide a training opportunity in race conditions.
