    Before proceeding to the event, pay attention to the following:

    13.4 Failure to send the required files to the Administration before 23:59 GMT of the Monday following
    the event, will result in a penalty and/or disqualification.

    Please can you tell me why ive been disqualified, and not just given a penalty. Being sent to the back of the grid seems very harsh for submitting files about 12 hours later than the deadline.

  3. Why me and my brother have to start from the back of the grid?

    I read the rules and i saw this:

    "The WT Championship top 10 drivers and the top 4 drivers from the previous Grid 2 race will not take part in Pre-Qualifying session for the next race since their participation in Grid 1 is guaranteed."

    My brother finished third on Grid 2 of Canada, so he dont have to do the PQ, right?

  4. The rule you quoted is from last year I think, it doesn´t count this year anymore.

    You should check here: http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/race-05-canada-post-race-checks.52358/ you and your brother didn´t send the required files so you got disqualified and got a back of the grid penalty.

    Because FSR don't understand people have lives outside of FSR Mo. :D Seriously though it is a little harsh I think. Sometimes things crop up and this kind of thing will happen.
  6. Whats all this about (start from back of grid)

    My files were sent after race ! ?
  7. Because it's the same for everybody, and I'm not going to give you a different penalty because it was "just 12 hours". It takes 30 seconds to send the files after the race.
  8. The following drivers can take part in Grid 1.

  9. Tume

    The unlucky Finn

    Dang it! The first guy to get into G2! But this means I'm on the pole!
  10. what about me?
  11. I asked you something 4 times in the server, and you didn't reply.

    yeh thats fine, and i understand its a penalty offence. What im saying is - in the rules it says 'And/OR' - which suggests that theres 2 options - Either a penalty is given, Or a DQ, or both.

    Now, seeing as it was the first time ive submitted files late - surely i should just get a penalty first, and if i do it again, then a DQ? Hence why i said it seemed a little harsh.

    THe rule leaves open the possibility of a penalty, or a DQ. Please respond to this or clarify the rule - thanks.
  13. It depends which file is missing i think, a missing Log file is always DQ and a missing Qualy Lap is a penalty.
  14. The penalty is the same penalty we have used in the past for everybody.
  15. I Might be in the Grid 2 Race
  16. You still have to answer to my question.
  17. The video of the broadcast is still freezing.... :cautious:

    I'm here Ron i just had a meeting that took a little longer than hoped for. I will be racing in Grid 2. Although I will be missing Hungary due to a convention so you can race from the start there and hopefully blitz them all ;) I told Lee about it but dont think he can have relayed message to Myles. Sorry for miscommunication. Will make sure I tell Myles as well from now on.
