this website should have a time to tell how many days, hours and minutes will the cup be in just like F1.com

they tell when the race will be like about 3 days, or 1 minute

it will be a great improve for cups

If you come there earlier, you will have better chance to get spot for the cup.
Be sure that you will be there before we have 20 players on the server.

Yeah, that's good idea. Some kind of clock should be available on the home page.

edit: I'll add this to the website suggestion to be sure that it will be remembered.

CET is GMT+2 during summer time, Brits are GMT+1.

First edition after 8 months, it went very well with almost full server. Thanks to Keppana for the track and other players for joining the cup!

I expected to battle for the victory, of course, but I didn't expect to dominate like that (I didn't drive default cars since the last Weekly Wanking with them). Ok, I have to admit that I was very lucky with Slider: starting 15 positions ahead of Janne made it easy. In the other hand, I'm disappointed about miscalculating laps with EasySlider: nobody ever scored 100 points in 23 editions of the tournament, without that mistake we would've had one :)

I got 5th place in the end!! [I think it was like 5th, 5th, 4th, 4th and again 5th in races]. Awesome battles with Keppana and also with Pablinho in the last race using Anti. Very happy with how the tournament turned out, hope iR are proud! :)

Thanks of IRT, for a very long time. Had good battles with Etmil and Pablinho. I really didn't expect 3rd place, thanks to Pablinho's bad luck and crashing in last race (he had 2 points lead before the race, which turned 1 point lead for me after the race). IHLC next?

Ouch, that sounds very hard to me since all sundays are taken by F1 League. But well, if you provide one more track, I can organize one :)
