    What is the "Qualifier"?
    The Season Qualifier will allow drivers to be placed on a grid where they will be most competitive and the racing will be the closest. All drivers wanting to compete in the league (excluding the top 6 from RDGPC S5 who have confirmed their place) will have to place in at least 1 valid lap during the course of the session. Information, rules and timings below.

    Track Description
    Spielberg will host our Season Qualifier, so drivers will be running as fast as they can around a very quick, flowing circuit. The historic Formula 1 venue, located in Austria will be a tough 4.318 km (2.683 mi) for all of the drivers as they push to their limits (and beyond) in a private qualifying session.

    Event Schedule - September 30th
    • Open Practice - 17:00GMT (120 Minutes)
    • Official Qualifying - 19:00GMT (60 Minutes)

    Private Message To All Drivers Will Be Sent Tonight

    Qualifying Event (September 30th)

    Welcome to the RDGPC Season 6. Due to the lack of sign ups we will only be running one grid. This means that not everyone will get to race. We have opened the grid up to allow 30 cars to run, however.

    The qualifying event will be run at the same date/time as originally stated (SEP30). All drivers must place at least one valid lap time in (except the drivers automatically qualified from Season 5).
    30 Cars will qualify for the RDGPC with the remaining 5 drivers being reserve drivers in case of an absence. If a driver does not put in a valid lap time during the qualifying session, they will be removed from the sign up list.

    Server Information
    This will be supplied in the private message tonight.

    Multiple People have mentioned about different things that have come up so they cannot attend the session. My final answer:

    This date has been available since the start of September and the time was announced two weeks ago.

    If you do not attend you will be removed from the league.

    The times are not being adjusted and no driver is getting "special treatment" as this is unfair to everyone else.

    I am sorry if this upsets anyone, but you have had this information long enough.

    The password was sent out to all drivers in a private message. The password is not to be shared publicly.
