A lot of you may know that with the new builds of rFactor 2 changes have been made to the way that wet weather works within the software. On the 15th March 2015 we will be holding a wet weather test race with the WC teams to thoroughly test this. We will also hold it at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit as this may now be bug-free. This will allow us to test both the wet weather and the track thoroughly. All WC teams will be asked to send 2 drivers each to compete in this race. They do not need to be their WC drivers. Times will be run as the WC times for the 2014 Season.

well I spoke to Thomas on the server a few days back david and he said that we most likely wouldn't run full wet, so was just wondering if we knew what exact conditions we'd be running. Mainly because im bored and want to drive ;)

We should be there with both Morgan Morand and Carlos Martin. In any case, we'll grant two drivers on track.

Avid Chronic Racing will be there with Pashalis Gergis and Michi Hoyer. I am sure JES will be there as well.
If you need more drivers David O'Reilly said he could join.

OK guys tomorrow will start at approximately 17:00 gmt. I've been receiving some information from RD on how to work we weather which we will be using. The rest will develop as needed depending on results but we will be starting with an 11 lap race where the track is gradually getting wetter and then a second race where the track is gradually getting drier. Obviously tomorrow is not broadcast but we will let you all know when a decision is made based on the results of the test

And what will be the track used ? The 2014 one or the SpaFIX ?
Thanks.
A proper topic for this Pre-race would have been wise....
2 different thread for a single event where we see opposite things ( 16:00 GMT in these page :
http://www.racedepartment.com/threads/fsr-2015-world-championship-information.102196/#post-1954108
and here 17:00 GMT ( practice ? 11lap race ? )
I have to plan my day and it's a bit struggling to not have proper clear informations.
This will be the track version: http://avidchronicracing.com/FSR/FSRSpa2015Final.rfcmp

Time will be 17GMT. I think Kris accidentially added the Pre Season test to the list without knowing the final time.

What will be done Thomas said I think. 2 Races à 11laps. One on increasing wetness and one on decreasing. Than I can imagine some practice between and before and for setting up the weather properly.

No comments yet? Strange, i'll be the first one then :) Imo, first test race was just brilliant. I accidentally happened to race, so without preparation it was quite tricky (I think this was my first wet race in rf2) For sure driving in wet requires proper differential setup and very light right foot unless you want to destroy rear tires in two laps which is exactly what I did. But it was very fun too, track getting dry slowly and switching to dry tires early, also tricky, and in the end finding wall because of still pretty wet track off racing line.
From visual part even on my very very low settings, sky getting darker with clouds, slowly appearing racing line - very nice too.
All in all it looks promising but requires further testing imo to find good balanced values and studying other tricks, but it has future and i'm sure this will be best thing to happen to FSR for years.
