    Hi!

    I'll try to be there if i am able to practise enough. It will be my first online race and I'm afraid that my level as gpbikes' pilot is far from being the ideal one.  ::)

    Un Saludo!

    Matty.

    Because there will be online race virgins (no ofense Mr.Magoo, I don't say that for you) maybe you should considere turning jumpstart into penalties more than disqualification. Because, there will be mistakes I think.

    Unfortunetly we (server admins) cannot control the penalties given. (Not that I know of anyway)

    I would highly suggest going on the server and practicing a race start. I will  enable voting on the server tomorrow so you can go to a race and folow the procedure.

    Tip from a fun race newbie :)

    Use the walk keys to adjust your position in the grid boxes (it should turn white)
    Leave the bike in neutral with the brake on until you get a green start light
    Try and leave the box in a straight line for a while to avoid getting wiped out from behind.

    Not the quickesst start but it does avoid startline DSQ   :)

    Thanks for the tips  8).

    My intention is just having fun, I don't even pretend to win the race. If I could end the race without desqualifying and without ruining other's race... that will be a success for me.

    The problem is that this is my first time with the Catalunya track and I have to learn all the corners and at least be consistent with my times. If I don't get that before the race I'll wait to another opportunity.

    I would not worry too much, biggest problem on my first few attempts was trying not to get caught up trying to chase faster riders. Concentrate on trying to run a pace your comfortable with and not fixating on the other bikes rather than your own riding line.

    Pro tip m8.
    Thats how it is, just do your race , dont try to get away of your line for others to pass. Faster riders will find room to pass you without disturbing (most of them at least lol  ;D)
    Anyway is a fun race, don't get it too serious and enjoy.

    I would like to race it guys, but i can't on saturdays, ..next time.

    Great advice from h106frp and Warlock.....

    Yeah, don't worry mate, just come along and enjoy the race even if your not getting consistent lap times and crashing more than you'd like you should still come and join in the race, it'll be great experience for you. We all start out as novices in GPB and yes you'll probably make mistakes and crash more than you'd like, etc, but don't worry about any of that, as I said we've all been novices to GPB races and realise what it's like when you enter your first races online. Just go out there and enjoy it, and leave any worries about getting in the way of other riders to the other rider, they will find a way around you mate, just stick to your usual racing line and you'll be okay.  ;)

    PS: I'll be there Matty!  ;D
