    Absence reports can be submitted until 24 hours before the start of the official practice.

    Yes indeed it is. Our rules explicitly state until when you can report absence. That means not in the last 24 hours. There was an entire week to report it so we can update the starting grids in time. Now a driver was promoted to server 1 in the dying seconds which is far from ideal.

    I couldnt report it midweek anyway as i was awaiting conformation from knockhill circuit if my trackday event was going ahead as its been bad weather.

    24 hours not enough notice ha! Never mind

    I apologize for not showing up on yesterdays race, our internet provider seem to have a complete meltdown as we have no WiFi nor mobile data. Hell, had to go to my grandparents place to get internet access. Again sorry.

    Apologies gents but my hair brained idea of upgrading my rig with a triple monitor stand has just evaporated into a pile of rubble lying in the corner of the room. :rolleyes: Will have to take my leave of round 4, Oulton Park :( gutted but with only 24 hours til lights out, I just don't think I'll make it, will bow out now to let a reserve get some practice in. Points allowing I do hope I will see you at Hockenheim. Good luck all!

    Just a heads up I live in South Africa where electricity is not a priority of the people that run the country, we have been without power for 4 hours last night and as I am writing this we don’t have power again. If I am able to join today’s event it will be a miracle. I am using my mobile to post this, apologies in advance but somethings are out of our control,
    Power back let’s hopw it stays this way.

    Absences can be reported until 24 hours before the start of the practice. This means you are both too late.

    Do you mean I am out of the season? :(

    "A one time absence is permitted during the season provided you notify the league director within 24 hours of the commencement of the practice session (13:00 UTC), and it is a valid reason"

    I sent my absence asap and I didn't know that will cause disqualification.
    So sad, I was really excited joinning every race with the community... :(:(:(

    Within 24 hours of the practice is too short. Yesterday was a mess again with people not showing up or reporting absence too late. We have Alex putting tons of time into the spotter guides to find out hours before the race it's incomplete again due to people reporting too late.
    I am sorry but we have these rules in place for a good reason.
