    Server is up, including the weather.

    I just got of the phone with my personal weather agent, and he informed me that it would be very wise to bring the wet tires as well...
    During first practice session ( the long on of 999 minutes), weather will change from time to time, but it does so in a second :) Nothing big, so dont be scared.
    Official practice will start with rain, and later on it clears up a bit. Qualification starts dry, but there might be a drop here and there.
    The race itself starts dry. Besides a few drops, nothing to worry about for the first half an hour orso. After that, it could be a little shower dropping, but eventually, it should clear up again.

    Have some fun :)

    Mini Friday races are typically one race, 80 minutes long. A pit stop is required for fuel, tires if you wish and the stop can be made at any time. Tuesdays races with the GT cars are 45 minutes long and the WTCC/STCC races on Thursday are only 22 minutes long with the top 8 places reversed for the start of race 2. There's no pit stop required for the GT or WT/ST races but if you think you need one ;).

    It's just a long practice session, really :laugh:, do join in!
     
  14. But where are drivers ??
    It's so nice to race within gentlemens ..

    Weather file seems to be playing up between turn 11 and 12, thunderstorm appears for 3/4 seconds and then disappears, seems like a glitch to me, just an observation before the actual event, you might want to look into it.:)

    You have that continuasly? I checked the server last night, and did a few laps on it. Did not notice that.

    Am at work now, so can't check here. Will check on it when I get home.

    Also, is this in first practice session? There is an issue with that session and the weather. Has to do with the fact that I have to define 999 minutes individually. Best to test is skip it to practice 2 (so official practice session that is).

    By the way, I am not sure yet, but I might drop in tonight myself as well :)
     
  19. Sign me up please. If it's wet then keep to the dark racing line. This track is extreme slippy off line in the wet - just like a real road that has had months of lubricants and solvents absorbed and when the rain first comes that slippy stuff comes up to the surface.
