    Yesterday I put a time (2m32sXXX) on the server but can't find it on liveracers results (http://racedepartment.liveracers.com/Results)
    It was around 23h00 (11pm?)

    EDIT: I've installed the skin pack and I'm always kicked out of the server.

    EDIT2: I was trying to use my custom skin. I deleted it and now it works.

    @Bram Hengeveld , just to confirm from your message on the Championship inbox, to make sure I understood it properly:

    - Is everything legal as long as the game does not detect it?
    - More specifically for the pre-qualification, does it mean that in theory we should all be cutting the last chicane because that's how all the fastest laps will be made now?

    Just asking now to make sure all is clear before the end of the pre-qualification and the beginning of the championship :)

    Cutting the chicane does seem to yield an undetected faster lap...
    Would be good to get clarity on this and maybe, if it is allowed, advising of the cut on here so everyone knows it. I only found it by accident tonight and not sure I could repeat it or even maximise my speed through it until race night when it will be too late...

    @Daniel Monteiro no, cutting the chicane is not the way to go of course.

    I have added an extra part to the PM to clarify this a bit more but I honestly hope we don't need discuss this in length. Common sense really and I am sure all the drivers understand perfectly fine that going straight through sandtraps on a chicane is blatantly cheating if done on purpose. Such actions don't belong here on RD and will of course not be tolerated.

    Every driver knows when they are 100% cutting and gaining time. When that happens you back off from the throttle, which goes without saying really.

    May I ask how the divisions will work after the first round? Will the current prequal determine the two groups for the whole championship, or will there be ways to move up/down the ranks between the events?

    The starting grids will be defined based on the general classification @balage06. This means people should really avoid a DNF at all times as that is going to costs a lot of points.

    First 24 drivers in the GC will be placed into server 1 for round 2 etc.

    But it will be extremely hard to promote from server 2 into 1 this year. Somebody has to dominate in server 2 and secure the overlap points to make it into server 1. Unless the aforementioned DNF's happen :)

    I'm starting to wish I had entered, after getting used to both AMS and the Mini for a few hours including a couple hours learning Suzuka I got my time down to where it wasn't as bad as I expected. It would've been a good learning experience for me. How often do you run these Mini Challenges? I know you run regular Friday races, there is just something intriguing about the multi-race format.

    There should still be a "Incident report" topic.

    Greets and step it on!

    Can we use the Esc key during qualify to get new tyres and re-enter the track?

    Hi,

    Just checking: Do I need to purchase the 'Brit Pack' from steam for the next round, or is the track available standalone?

    Thanks.
