Hmm, ok. It seems the field is already filled with 12 drivers. If someone can't make it tonight I'll gladly take the spot, just need to know a a couple of hours before hand so I can buy/mod the car and take a look at the tracks as I don't know them.
 
You can let me know through here or PSN message.
 
EDIT: OK, even better if we don't need to spend money :)


If I'm not mistaken, there should be room for at least 16 drivers.

I'm thinking last week in April/1st week in May, there is a UK holiday around then which is good for people being able to get time off work but bad as there will also be an increase in travel costs.


You also didn't include ferry crossings when you estimated costs the other day.

About 3 hours

Should cost between 150-200£.

I realised after. Going to work out if it's cheaper for the ferry or chunnel. Fido got a rough price for minibus on a Ferry. If there's 12 of us it will be about £90. More the merrier and the cheaper it gets!

My price was for the tunnel, not the ferry.

I just priced a ferry for the last weekend April and it was £112. Buy that was based on nine in a minibus. Departing Friday returning Sunday. Chucked those days in to see the cost.
Tunnel would be the one though, it's an hour quicker. (I think)

That's not bad at all. Especially between 8 or 9 of us.

Stay in a hostel and this could be quite affordable.

I can imagine you making up for it as soon as we arrive! Plus there will be plenty of drinks coming your way for putting up with us rowdy passengers.

:lol: Probably. Dodge is only 9112 posts away from 10.000, so I'm sure he's gonna make it a challenge for himself to get there. :p

 

Anyway, not sure if it's old news or not, but apparently Matt LeBlanc will co-host the new season of Top Gear.

I hate/love to do this but I'm going to name drop here. I got to ride dirt bikes and hang with Matt (and about 40 other people) for a weekend. It was an industry ride hosted by the motorcycle magazine I worked at the time. He's a very nice guy, down to earth and good rider. I busted his balls all weekend about his movie with the monkey which has just come out. He will be a good host for Top Gear.

Possibly part of the UK leg, Fido wants to drive a vehicle with the steering wheel on the right side so he can take over from Lille plus he knows how to drive on the wrong side of the road. Work out exact driving details once we know who we've got onboard.

Hey all! I too just signed up to GTAF. I never knew the places DB would take me! :cool:

 

I've done the reverse trip :)

 

What's this TNT thing by Dodge? Does it have any specific rules/cars or anyone just wanting to race can join?

 

 

Each week is a different car, everyone has a different colour to tell people apart. This week all the races are with the Vulcan Warrener, car colour choices have already been posted above. Buy one, mod it and race!

 

 

Hmm, ok. It seems the field is already filled with 12 drivers. If someone can't make it tonight I'll gladly take the spot, just need to know a a couple of hours before hand so I can buy/mod the car and take a look at the tracks as I don't know them.

 

You can let me know through here or PSN message.

 

EDIT: OK, even better if we don't need to spend money :)

 

The PL will hold at least 16. I think all the tracks are PS4 which means it will support 30. If we have to use the same colors a couple of times it's fine, but the idea is to use all the colors available.

Thanks. You can sign me up then. I thought it was limited to 12 because of the description.

 

Have you set the playlist up already? If you did could you drop a link? I'd like to practice a few of the circuits, but the links for them don't work now that our forum site is down and I'm having trouble finding them on R* website just searching by name.

 

EDIT: Found the jobs already. Just couldn't because the default search setting is jobs created in the last 7 days and I missed that.

The Warrener is a Stock Car race. Don't buy one. You just need to make sure you are using a different color from everyone else. 

 

TNT is a weekly Racing PL. Some weeks you will need a specific Custom Car. First week of every month is the IROC Series. It uses a Stock car for the event. So no purchase is necessary. But every week though out the month will have a Theme. 

 

Thanks to this event I've finally realized what (CLASH) means. I thought it was a random description for a few colours. 

 
I'll be racing in Bronze colour.
 
Is it non-contact or standard?

Crew Challenge

 

How fast you can go around Afternoon Typhoon. ?

Choose either boat, any time of day, traffic off, non-contact, clear weather, fastest lap.

 

Rather than filling up this thread with crew challenge times it may be better to just send me a message here or on PSN and I'll post updates here.
