This Sunday we will be running a joint event with the American SFS (TPRA)
As they are 5 to 9 hours behind us this should give racing into the wee small hours for those that want.
(Although I suspect that for our Sunday morning some US night birds might drop by)
The TPRA also use Teamspeak so I have posted instructions for this again.
Even if you cannot get a mic setup, just hooking up so you can listen in might be worth while.
"Sucker free Sunday" is an open invitation to all GT Prologue racers to come down to a track each week and have some fun, and hopefully make some friends along the way.
Every week a specific track/car combination will be posted here on the OPC forum, and a set of "matching" times that drivers can start races at.
The idea is not so much of a tournament or league (no leaderboards or prizes), but more of a track day to get to know fellow drivers from this forum.
By getting you to use the specified car, once within a race you should be able to identify others from the forum by the fact they are running the same vehicle.
Sunday 23-05-2010 SFS we will be at Pro PP700: Fuji F.
Car to bring is the Aston Martin DB9
Start times will be 12, 27, 42 and 57 mins past the hour (i.e. 9.12, 9.27, 9.42, 9.57)
Many of you have linked in before and have the SFS text chat room already.
If you see a new face at the event, please feel free to send them an invite out to join the text chat room as I have done before for you.
And if you are new to the event and want to receive an invite to the text chat in advance, send an "Add a Friend" request to me (Ronin_Systemdek) and I will hook you up.
This is an all day event, with the idea that you join in at whatever time of the day is most suitable for you.
So if you know when you are likely to be on track please feel free to post in this thread and let others know.
To make sure you sync with the starting times correctly please check you have set your PS3 clock.
(Goto - Settings - Date and Time Settings - and choose "Set via Internet")
The meaning of "Sucker Free" is that the racing should be clean, no bashing, no blocking, no corner cutting (at least not intentionally).
If anyone is struggling with tuning for this event, there are several Internet sources for Prologue tunes.
Or if you think you have a good tuning setup please post it here for others to try (I have my own which I will put here if requested).
See you all Sunday.

The TPRA have very kindly offered us the use of their VOIP using a system called Team Speak.
This allows people that have a computer to hand with either a bluetooth or wired headset, to have in game chat while they race.
For those that are interested here are the details.
Many thanks again to nuTTTz and the TPRA for there support.

If your computer does not have a mic now, you can buy a separate one for a dollar (or whatever) in a local discount store and use the PC's speakers, although a chat headset is a better set of kit. Even they can be had for a few bucks, or your old PS2 Logitech one works.
TeamSpeak 3 works on both the Mac and Linux (I can help you install it, if you can't figure it out), too, so literally anyone with a computer should be able to use voice.
