    I just had a quick look at these Alfa's, very nice and look better than the default Alfa's. :cool:

    Stick me down for this, they should be a lot of fun at this track. :)

    The feature race is just a longer race (longer than the sprint), which usually involves a pit stop.

    I don't think i can make this, i haven't had the best of weeks so far so it's safer if I sign out now rather than be a 'no-show'. Sorry guys.

    I got an issue: When I enter the pits at Virgina the man who points to the line only appears for a millisecond and then disappears. I don't know where to stop! I tried to guess where to stop but it didn't work out lol.

    Hmmmnnnn!!! I just tested it on the Server, and I get the same thing at Virginia South. The pitstops don't seem to work there. I tried numerous spots to stop, trying to guess where he might be pointing but never could get the pitboard to show.

    However, it does work ok at Virginia North which is the one where the pitstop is required.

    Lets hope nobody needs the pits for Race 1.

    If there's a Sprint & a Feature race then I assume this isn't correct?
    Any ideas on the number of laps for each race or is it time-limited?

    @ Kris - No that is correct.

    Race 1 is on the "short track" over 16 laps, Race 2 is on the "long" track, also over 16 laps.

    The North track lap times are about 30 or so sec longer than the South, which adds 8 minutes (approx) to the second race, making it that much longer and able to be the "Feature" race.

    However, please see below:


    @ Warren / Hassan - The pitstop thing for the short track - I'm sorry about that - I never encountered it, and only tested the "North" track to see if that worked.

    If it bothers people that much, we can easily switch to doing the 2 longer versions of the track (North & Full) and drop the race lengths to 14 laps. That would mean a working pits for both races and include portions of the track you already know if you've practised.

    Please let me know asap.

    From my viewpoint, I'm happy to leave things as planned. I prefer to see both tracks used for more interest.
    The chances of anyone needing a pitstop in Race 1 is very small, and if someone wrecks their car, that race would basically be ended anyway.
