    The following drivers do NOT have to Pre-Q
    The following drivers must participate in Pre-Q. The top 18/23 drivers will proceed to the race.


    Schedule for Sunday 12th July

    12:55 GMT, Server Opens for PQ
    13:02 GMT, Pre-Qualifying
    13:18 GMT, Practice
    13:30 GMT, Qualifying 1
    13:45 GMT, Qualifying 2
    13:50 GMT, Warmup
    14:00 GMT, Race Start

    The Free Practice session will be 10 minutes in length and will be run in the "Practice 1" session. Every participating driver should join as soon as possible after the server opens to make sure that they don't miss the start of Qualifying and also to make sure that their game is configured & working properly.

    The Qualifying 1 session will be 10 minutes in length and will be run in the "Practice 2" session. Drivers can use what ever setup they want, as long as they only drive with qualifying fuel loads.

    The Qualifying 2 session will be 5 minutes in length. Only the top 10 drivers from Qualifying 1 will be allowed to go out on track. Drivers will be allowed to do one flying lap (one outlap, hotlap and inlap). The drivers will all be on track at the same time eg not private. Parc Ferme will be enforced. You will only be allowed to change your fuel load, engine boost, engine brakemap, front wing angle, steering lock, brake balance and brake pressure after the session is over, so make sure you have your race setup loaded when entering Qualifying 2. The session will be closed, meaning if you happen to join late, or for some reason drop out of the server during the session, you will not be able to rejoin the server until the server has moved to Warmup.

    The Warmup session will be 10 minutes in length. While in the garage, make sure you add the appropriate amount of fuel in to your car since refuelling is not allowed during the race. You can drive freely in the Warmup session to try to get a feel for the heavier car after qualifying on low fuel.

    The Race will be 32 laps long. Drive carefully during the race, especially at the start and first lap in general.

    Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.

  2. :roflmao: penalties
  3. How long will Q1 be? The schedule suggests 15 minutes but below it says 10 minutes.
  4. The additional 5 minutes compensates for the lap after the time runs out and gives me time to take note of the results and move to the next session. Q1 will be 10 mins long as always.

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

    Mike it looks like 28 definites and 2 uncertains. Do you think there will be Pre Q or will you expect a no show or 2?
  6. Potential 30 drivers to show so yes there will be preq.
  7. Updated allocation and penalties. Ranzini and Foster late allocation so will be at the bog, the rest in championship order.

  8. What about penalties for the guys who had allocated last race and didnt come?
  9. I can confirm now that I will 100% not be able to race. Enjoy guys.
  10. Mike are the penalized people allowed to run the qualification? I think in hockenheim someone did this, the qualification would be quite "empty" for the stream etc...
  11. There is not dislike button anymore but consider this post as a dislike :(

  12. No they cannot. That driver I had to scream at and almost booted :)
  13. im battling with the manager it says cannot find hashes.dat
  14. Foster and Pienaar miss out, the rest go through.
  15. Do we need to restart the manager?
  16. You need to have all the FSR manager rar package files in the same folder.
  17. Yes, if you closed rF2, restart manager, rename old log, and send both logs.
  18. Fixed

    Seriously two races running?
    (From left to right)
    Screenshot 1: I input the correct password (yes I've triple checked this and I had no problem in the early races)
    Screenshot 2: Once I click accept the box goes blank (loading)
    Screenshot 3: Server connection failed


    No issues in practice for Hockenheim or Silverstone but as soon as I get to pre q nothing works.

    Tried with and without FSR manager, even before server switched to official pre q session (in case join mid-session is prevented).

    Help please? :(
  20. It has nothing to do with manager, you just have to keep trying to join until it works, the rfmod download is hit and miss. Hopefully we get better server soon.
