    Hi everybody.
    Here are some infos to change drivers during very long races.

    First you have to set up two keys in the commands.
    The first is "Driver hot swap". It is used by the driver to allow the passenger to become the new driver.
    The second is "Passenger selection" (not sure about these words but it is the next choice). This key is used by the spectator to become the passenger of a car, and then the new driver.

    So, the day of the race, let's suppose that you are actually NOT driving the car. So, you have to connect to the server in "spectator mode". Go to multiplier then options. Choose the spectator mode and put it on "on".

    Join the server then select the actual driver with a right clic. Then press the "passenger selection" key. A message will be sent to him : "XXX is now riding with you". Now you have to stay in the cockpit with him.

    When he is ok (during the pit), the driver has to press the "driver hot swap" key. After 3 seconds (can be changed), you will have the car under control and the driver will become a spectator.

    Have fun!

    For the administrator, The server has to be set in the multiplayer.ini like this :

    ...
    Allow Spectators="1" // Whether to allow spectator clients to join the server.
    Allow Passengers="1" // Whether to allow spectators to join a car as a co-driver/passenger. If set to 1 and Allow Spectators is set to 0, spectators will be kicked from the game during the Race Session.
    Allow Hotswaps="1" // 0=drivers can only change at pitstops using the pit menu, 1=Drivers can switch at anytime with the Driver Hotswap key

    Hotswap I figured out but thats not really going to work in the end I fear. Really bad experience with it in rFactor.

    Preferably we need to find a way to make the pit swap work where you can hand over the controls in the pitlane. Everything is there the part the important part of the HUD is missing.
