    Hello everyone,

    For those people who are struggling to get 'rFactor 2 online' working correctly I thought I would try and help.

    Firstly for people who struggle to get 'Sebring 1.1' to work. I have provided a download link with the raw file for the track.

    Sebring 1.1 Download Link:
    http://www.mediafire.com/download/5bc16abfcb3q1q9/Sebring+1.1.zip

    Note: Please only use my link as a last resort since John and David worked so hard to get it working for everyone. Thank you John and David for everything you have done for FSR so far!

    WinRAR 32 Bit Download Link:
    http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-32-bit/3000-2250_4-10007677.html
    WinRAR 64 Bit Download Link:
    http://download.cnet.com/WinRAR-64-bit/3000-2250_4-10965579.html

    Step 1:
    Download the track from the link provided.

    Step 2:
    Once the track has download make sure you extract the zip file. You can do this by downloading a software called 'WinRAR'. If you do not have WinRAR I recommended you download it. This is so you can get the track files which are located in the zip folder. Once you have download WinRAR then click on the zip file and click 'extract to'. I prefer to extract it to the desktop so I can add the track to the 'rFactor 2 folder' myself. However you can extract the track directly to the designated folder. In which case you can skip 'step 3' if you have done this already.

    Step 3:
    Once you have extracted the track to your desktop, locate your 'rFactor2' folder (This is what it looks like for me) where you add all your cars, tracks etc. This should be in your 'documents folder'. Once you have located the folder go to installed then locations and put the track for Sebring 1.1 in that folder.

    Step 4:
    Go onto the 'rFactor 2 Launcher' and click 'Manage Mods'.

    Step 5:
    Find the 'Sebring 1.1' track and click 'install'.

    Step 6:
    Once the track is installed load 'rFactor 2 online' and find the 'FSR Winter Server' and see if you can join. If you can't join and the button is faded out (to go on the server) then go onto the next step.

    Mismatched Server Issues (the 'join' button, for the FSR Winter Series sever, is faded out).

    Step 1:

    Firstly go onto 'rFactor Launcher' (this is where you load 'rFactor 2' from).

    Step 2:
    Next click on 'update' on the top bar.

    Step 3:
    Make sure your game is the current build. If 'rFactor 2' is not the 'current build which is 382' then you need to click 'update'.
    Step 4:
    Once the update is complete go back onto 'rFactor 2 online' and hopefully the 'join' button is not faded out.

    If anybody still wants 'Imola v1.2' you can download it here:

    If you have any other problems then contact an FSR administrator or if you post your 'rFactor 2 online problem' on this post then hopefully the FSR community will be able to help you.

    Good luck to everyone for 2014.

    Regards,
    James
