    So here comes the red face moment...

    A small number of drivers were affected by an issue where they would not have a final session recorded in results files, despite having been in the server, visible in replays, and setting valid laps. I was made aware of this early in the week (you may have seen @Manuel Alves post above) and after some testing and verification performed with him it was ascertained that valid laps were indeed being missed.

    The code I added to capture these laps contained a bug which resulted in some case in the lap being thrown out as invalid when in fact it was not. Having been notified of incorrect final times this evening and verifying those from results files and replays, the issue was identified and fixed and a new set of standings produced.

    Five drivers have improved their times as a result. The changes are as follows:

    @Chris Butcher improves and moves from P2 to P3
    @Chris Shepherd improves but moves from P3 to P2
    @Luka Berk improves and remains P4
    @Fatalist88 improves and remains P16
    @Jan Larsen previously listed as no valid lap, moves to P46
    All Drivers from P46 onwards drop 1 place​
    (drivers who's time changed are marked with * in the new results image)

    In practice this will only affect points allocation as Jan has excused himself from the race tomorrow. The splits for Servers 1 and 2 remain as posted in the Imola Thread.

    They both moved from P2 to P3?

    Not giving you a hard time, as mistakes happen...or maybe I'm misunderstanding this post.

    Wow! Crazy time has been set. Congrats guys.:thumbsup:
    After visiting some "Mini fridays" the last weeks, i was hoping to be at least in division 1, even if my pace for Suzuka wasn't really competitive. Prequali was challenging at best.:redface:
    But i wonder where all the aliens:alien: were sleeping previously. Seems like they were living under a rock until the start of this new season.:O_o::confused: I'm really stunned by all the laptimes.

    Best of luck this season to the TDR drivers @Matt Le Gallez and @TobiasR!
