    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    Please sign me up. Ive been missing the 911 GT3 and skinned one and worked on setups tonight.

    Just a quick question, are we really having 1 and a half hours of practice?

    You can also join shorty before qualification - the session starts so early since the idea behind this event is having some practise with other drivers and rounding it all up with a short sprint race in the end :)

  8. Sign me in. But the time could be used for more practise races instead perhaps since it´s just 20 minutes races?

    Yeah I think we are pretty flexible - as long as no one is "pending an open session" it shouldn't be a problem
    (Edit: I also don't mind if there are LMPs)

    It's not a problem, it just seemed strange to have that much practice for a 10 lap race, but all is good, in Admin we trust.

    I really need the practice but unfortunately this is the middle of the work day for me. If anyone cares to share a bit about a setup for the Ferrari that would help a great deal. I think I keep trying to drive in the rain with no rubber on the track and I am having a bit of a hard time finding any speed:( Not having raced in the rain, which the server seems to be on much of the time, I'm still trying to figure it out! Thanks in advance

  17. Seem to be a bug with the Ferrari? All the Ferraris broke down in the race. I got the furthest didn´t really push and had clean air all the time... This is the first time ever I had a car break down in rFactor 2 while not deliberately working to get there.

    Full Fuel stints and refueling in hotter condition in practise before has never been a problem.

    Great race, I was surprised to be third in the end. I had great time racing with Yuri.
    Hope on Saturday it will be even better. :thumbsup:

    I think the problem is the same for the astons as the three of us broke down before the Ferrari's. For once I didn't have a temp reading up so I have no idea plus never had a car brake either so I would have thought there would have been smoke to say it's over heating instead I just had flames

    A bad quali means I can go forwards in the race.

    The Ferrari of Alexi K had big flames too.
    In testing a potential quali setup the 911 engine shows over temp and then blows smoke at 106 deg. So I upped Rad to #3.
    Maybe there is an issue so its good we did the test race.
    Maybe we need another quick test??
    So it ended up being the Porsche Cup!
    None the less my first ever RD win in RF2. I was P3 on grid and in the race. The Ferraris made a gap of 9 sec over say 5 laps and I inherited the lead when the Ferraris blew up.I think I had 31 sec on the #2 911 plus my car had my own skin.
    I feel I have arrived:cool:
    But seriously thanks for the race. You can have as lot of fun in 20 mins, I didnt know this:whistling:
