Alright, I’m Steve! and to anyone who doesn’t know me, I raced in the Collantine Cup, and also last years LM24L (with an awesome battle to the finish with @ed24f1 !). Why am I talking to you? well, Damon is at my house (heck, i’m looking at him right now!
weird), and he’s kinda busy with other things, so I’m (temporarily) in charge.
What was that thing about @damonsmedley being 2 people? well, in-case you didn’t figure it out, we’re entering as a team. That’s right! driver changes at every pitstop, it’s like a real race!
Since it’s just over 24 (real) hours till the race begins, if you’re going to enter, do it now! Entries and car confirmation will close 4 hours before the lights go out (at 12:00GMT), so if you’re still sitting on the fence, don’t! I also recommend that you confirm your car as soon as possible, since anyone can enter before you and take your choice (it’s first in, best dressed). Then you’ll have to pick another car, and that isn’t very fun.. right?
As for how the race is going to run.. here’s a step-by-step guide to tomorrow:
Step 1: Friend request iamsa8 on PSN (do it now, i’m not going to stop the game right before the start to accept your request).
Step 2: Confirm your car/psn name on this forum thread here BEFORE 8:00GMT
Step 3: Go to the toilet.. Seriously, it’s a long way
Step 4: Join my (iamsa8) ‘lounge’ room (Community, my profile, coffee logo). The room will be up (at least) half an hour before race start. DON’T leave it to the last minute, you can practice and chat with other competitors there, get in nice and early.
Step 5: Follow the prompts, respond to chat, get your tyre strategy fully planned, remember how to disengage the pitspeed limiter -cough- @supernicebob -cough-
Step 6: Race!
Some final words: @damonsmedley and I are the same person in the race.. It might be damon, it might be me.. don’t freak out or anything.
If you want to enter, do it! There’s still about 4 spots on the grid, gogogo!
Finally, for anyone who doesn’t own a PS3, there’s going to be live updates of the race from the twitter account of @damonsmedley. The hashtag will be #LM24L
Good luck, and godspeed!
