    Could we finish the races? with full fuel tank I think is not enough to finish 44 laps, or at least is too tight. And refueling isn't allowed in pit stops with this mod.

    I've needed 30 liters to do 14 laps (or 15, I don' remember, I have to try again), but it was a very slow rythm ... I think that consumption could be somewhat higher in race.

    Sorry if I'm wrong.

    By my estimation the fuel will last about 50 laps on this track, so there is a pretty save margin to 44. I don´t think anyone will be able to get that high consumption.

    unfortunately I can´t tell you that as the release of the Mod relies on some external factors. I hope we can release it today though. If it´s not released today we can use the standard ISI Mod for the first race though.

    You must register at the GPCOS for Formula Sim Racing (http://gpcos.formula-simracing.net/)

    After registering, go to your "Control Center" and click "Start Driving". In the drop down menu, click FSR Winter Series Team and press Add Request. An admin will then check and confirm/deny you for the league.

    After you have been confirmed, go back to "Control Center" and click "Maintain Driver Allocations". Click the race you want to participate, (This weekend is Estoril) and say whether you will participate or not :)

    You can view the current participation list HERE
    I hope I answered your questions quickly! I have nothing better to do! :laugh:
