  1. Thanks to some Googlification by Matthew Schofield and some on track testing, we've finally figured out how the qualifying system works. As a result, the format of future club events has been tweaked and there are some new rules which need to be followed in order to prevent any problems.

    The format will be a practice session, a qualifying session, and then one or more race sessions.

    Practice Session - 20 Minutes
    • Official practice will start at the exact time stated in the event thread.
    • All participants must join the lobby during this 20 minute period.
    • Participants are free to chat, drive, tweak, or do whatever they like during this session.

    Qualifying Session - 10 Minutes
    • Once qualifying starts, no-one else may join the event, signed up or not.
    • During this session you must not exit the track back to the main lobby.
    • You may enter the pits by either driving in or using the pause menu to exit.
    • You must not stop during qualifying. If you need a break, go to the pits.
    • When on an outlap, check your mirrors. If someone is on a timed lap, you must let them pass.
    • Headsets must be muted for the qualifying session.

    Race Sessions
    • The number of races and the grid format will be listed in the event post.
    • The RaceDepartment Golden Rules must be followed at all times!
    • Headsets must be muted during race sessions.

    Important: These rules, particularly those governing the qualifying session, are necessary due to the way the game works. Failure to follow them fully will not only ruin your own qualifying time, but will also ruin and invalidate the entire qualifying session! Qualifying is an important part of racing, so it's in everyone's interest to follow the rules.
     
  2. OP updated - new session lengths and emphasised the point that participants must not return to the main lobby during qualifying.
