I think you can join every race apart from the events which take place at the Rockingham track.

To join you just have to join the server on time. You can find the password for the server below this chatbox.

Good luck!

As long as i race in LFS i used to control the brakes with my left foot and the throttle with the right foot. Yesterday i only used my right foot. I discovered that i could control my car much better this way. (i have no clutch-pedal)
However, the laptimes only marginally improved.

How do you throttle/brake? Are there any tips to improve this, to get a better control of the car?

I don't use my left foot unless I use the clutch. As a consequence sometimes my right foot suffers after racing (especially the knee)

I use both feet in a real car. (no clutch for LFS)
I will use my left foot for covering the brake will cornering or after I have got of the brake with my right foot, i will then cover the brake with my left (old habits die hard)

Bert. You will find that your right foot is proberly more Sensitive. Meaning you have better control & feeling of the pedal under your foot. Plus you wont have the tendancy to rest your foot on the brake while on a st8. And visa-versa.

Not to change the subject but I'd be interested in hearing from someone using heel and toe driving.
