    Spa Updates
    . Anyone Seen Extending Massively Through Eau Rouge (Raidillon) And The Exit Of Blanchimont Will Be Penalised After The Race So Basically Anyone That Straight Lines Eau Rouge To Catch The Car In Front Ect.

    . If You Havent Seen Already The Race Will Now Start At 1pm In-Game Rather Than The Original Plan For A Night Race.

    . This Race Will Still Be Ran In Random Conditions And Is For The Endurance Points As Shown In The Table.

    . @ChristosG99 For Anyone That Wasn't Aware Was Given A 20 Second Time Penalty For Not Changing Tyres In The Previous Race Which Was Added To His Race Time.

    . Last But Not Least Mr.Milden You Know What's Coming lol, For Changing Cars Twice After Using Your 1 Allowed Car Change The Penalties For Doing So Are As Follows.


    . Banned From Qualifying At Silverstone GP Sprint Race (Done)
    . Banned From Qualifying At Spa GP Endurance Race
    . Banned From Qualifying At Hockenhiemring GP (Both Sessions)
    . 10 Points Added To Your License For The 1st Change
    . 10 Points Added To Your License For The 2nd Change
    . This Means You Now Have A Total Of 20 Points on Your License Which Is Why You Are Also Banned From Qualifying At Watkins Glen GP (Feature Race Only)

    These Have Been Decided As Fairly As I Could Otherwise Why Have The Car Rule There In The First Place And As Ben Knows Was Abit Silly Going To The V8 Aston Back To The V12 Then To The RUF In 1 Race Weekend lol But I Hope You've Learnt From That And Be No More Changes Or You Will End Up Not Qualifying For Rest Of The Season Hahaha :)
