    Yes please!
    This is an epic combination!

    Just a heads up, these cars don't have a big enough fuel tank to complete 30 laps.
    You'll probably be able to do around 17-19 laps on a full tank.

    2 races? Haha

    That'd be awesome if there was some way to carry over the finishing spot from the last race as your qualifying spot for the second. Is there?

    Unfortunately not.
    Gotta reset the server to do an additional race.
    But it's okay it doesn't take long.

    Hypothetically you could just run the event as normal for the first race, and then for the second race have a 10 min booking/pee break, and then a 10min qualifying and another 18 lap race

    Ooh! Idea-

    Take a screen cap of the results of the first race and just rally the cars in that same order, and make that qualifying.

    But of course, we don't have to make the R1 results the qualifying positions of R2, I just think it'd be cool.

    Or do the escape key pits, with some good instruction it is completely useable, I've done it myself haha. Either way I'm in!
    @Chris Stacey, @Saleem Hodge If you want to test it, we could jump in the 24/7 server quickly

    You enter the pits as you would normally doing a pit stop, GO PAST THE START/FINISH LINE, that is the trick. if you don't do this your lap will not count. Hit escape and back to pits, unless you are going to make a change hit the go button right away. It will give you lights to start which I'm guessing is accounting for pit change time. Once they are green you can go!

    Ohhhhhh you mean to do pitstops in the race.

    Sorry, I thought you meant a method of getting the same grid slots as the previous race results.

    Ahh yeah I see.

    I mean, I'm all for that with GT cars and such, but for these Formula Abarth cars, they don't actually have pitstops in real life because they only run like 2 x 28 minute races. Only pitting for damage etc.

    But I mean if everyone wants to run longer races with these things that's perfectly fine with me :)
