    Date: 21st of April
    Laps: 39
    Weather:
    There are 10 weather files:
    -All 10 have 27 degrees and dry in qualify.
    -All 10 start the race with 27 degrees and dry weather

    -3 will remain 27 degrees and dry weather throughout the event
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 49min-53min into the race
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 50min-54min into the race
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 51min-55min into the race
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 52min-56min into the race
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 53min-57min into the race
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 54min-58min into the race
    -1 will make a transition from dry (50%) to heavy rain (90%) from 55min-59min into the race

    One of the 10 weather files will be picked randomly and used on race day without anyone's knowledge of which file is in place.

    I've opened a server called PrestoGP Weather Transit. The qualify is 10 minutes long and the race is 6 laps long. The weather transition during this race will be equal to the transition that is included in 7 out of the ten weather files (the remaining 3 files are of course dry all the time).

    Minute=0.00
    Conditions=50.84
    AmbientTemp=27.42

    Minute=1.00
    Conditions=60.41
    AmbientTemp=27.39

    Minute=2.00
    Conditions=70.07
    AmbientTemp=27.24

    Minute=3.00
    Conditions=80.73
    AmbientTemp=27.04

    Minute=4.00
    Conditions=90.40
    AmbientTemp=27.76

    Minute=5.00
    Conditions=90.07
    AmbientTemp=27.35

    etc.

    I can see the Presto team are trying some new and interesting ideas for the race.

    total joke of a race

    started great, upto 4th by t2 until Rune came right through the side of me, then someone else bashed into the other side of me, i kept going with broken suspension, it didnt feel too bad until it got to the windy parts of the track then i struggled, from there Tim hit me twice and made an already damaged car pretty much undrivable, i struggled on to get hit this time by Per Anderson, this time id had enough, the car was undrivable, my fellow racers seemed intent on taking me out at every oppertunity so i gave up, angry from 4th at t2 lap 1 to last by lap 5, complete and utter waste of 3 weeks practise.
