First, thanks to Keith for allowing a little bit of promotion here.
I’d like to extend you all an invite to join Really Rubbish Racing. We’re an online racing club formed over a year and a half ago now on this very site no less when a group of us thought up the F1Fanatic Forza Motorsport 3 championship.
We’re looking for new members to join the club. Many of us originally met on this website, so you’ll be in good hands. We’re not the fastest of online racers (although some of our members have got rather good since joining the club – but thats one of the perks of helping each other out), but we like to race fairly and we like to have a lot of fun. We have a wide range of skill levels so you’ll always have someone to race against. We’ve even got some semi-famous members, including the younger Collantine brother, the founder of wtf1.co.uk, that guy who does the F1 posters, and have even had a few Collantine Cup driver cameos. Our race series are well-thought-out and structured like real championhships. We usually race on Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30pm UK time. 85% of our membership are in the UK, but that doesn’t mean you have to be.
To this day we mainly race using the Forza Motorsport series (currently on its 4th iteration). We’re just about to start our 7th season of competition which is a 7-week long GT championship along the lines of the GT1 World Championship and Blancpain Endurance Series.
Our previous seasons have featured Touring Cars, DTM, Superminis, Mid-Engined classics, and a mixture of a little bit of everything. We’ve also raced 3 seasons of F1 using the Codemasters games, and we’ve also dabbled with Race Driver:GRiD and Race Pro.
If you have an Xbox360 console (and microphone headset) and a copy of Forza Motorsport 4 and you’d like to live the dream of becoming a world-famous race driver/team owner, we have a forum you can sign up to and join in the banter and the racing.
We also have a wiki-powered website that keeps track of all our facts and stats, a YouTube channel full of our videos (which you’re welcome to contribute to), and a twitter account to follow.
And to start you off… some videos:
