    Since the latest patch, we haven't been able to figure out how to display remaining race time instead of laps. We race a timed race and its difficult to know where the race is at without knowing how much time there is to race.

    Any help in how to show the remaining race time on the screen would be appreciated.

    To be honest i kind of prefer it like this, kind of makes it more realistic as you are left wondering sometimes if you have enough fuel to make it to the end or will i need more, so for me it can stay the way it is and i would be happy enough.

    Our league has the same problem since the last update. It is really annoying - any idea why this happened or if there is a fix?

    I'm confused. I run timed races all the time and it always shows how much time is left.

    I'm playing singleplayer Steam version. Guess it must be a dedi server issue.

    But for the realism factor, if you were running these cars IRL, your team would be informing you of everything while racing :p

    Just food for thought

    Anyone find a solution yet?

    Has anyone found a fix for this besides a stopwatch or a second screen. It used to be part of the game but the last patch did something and now its no longer there.

    Tried to e-mail simbin but haven't received any responses.

    We are already several races into a season and all during the race everyone wants to know how much time is remaining in the race.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    In case some haven't noticed, most cars in Race (but not all) have the time remaining (or laps if that’s the case) for race finish in the cockpit display (default key "enter" I think).

    I don't know if this is the case at every circuit but in Assen when there is a 2 hour GT race there is a countdown clock of time left on the start finish straight.
    So it's not unrealistic to know how much time there is left.

    You can get this tool by Yako:
    http://www.vitumo.de/
    It shows tire temperatures, remaining time and more!

    i'm in a championship and i had that huge problem my last race,... i was runnig out of fuel, and i din't know when the race was going to finish,... i was runing in the GT2 class, in the last lap i had to slow down and let the GT1 leader to pass on the last curv and wait for him to cross the finish line to know if the race was going to come to an end,... but not,.. i had to cut the track to go to the pits for fuel for just one more lap,.. i lost 3 positions, from 3rd to 6th,...

    It's puzzling to me that Simbin haven't fixed this one by now.
    It worked fine before the last patch, and with Steam it should be rather easy to pop a fix in.
    Surely they already know why it was broken with the last patch. :poke:
