Sounds great! If I can ever figure out how to get the server to show on my end I'd love to join.

I've tried several times for 20+ min after the server was scheduled to launch on nothing shows up.
Serval list/All/search by name/ Simracing.gp/#unique server id/Racedepartment all have come back server not found?

Is there something I am not inputting properly or a possible setting that needs adjusting or online rating I need?

Thank you!
I can see those servers :)
For some reason, when searching simracing.gp and the #unique server code no servers are found or appear on the mp home screens severs available, but I found out that if I just type simracing in the search bar I can get them to show.

Thanks for the invite!

Was an interesting first event.
What's the rules for race starts?
I qualified 10th and right before the chicane before the start line about 6 cars passed me and by the start line I was 17th or 18th?

Sorry I bailed for race 2 I didn't want to ruin any more people's races the netcode and rubber banding was terrible and punted 3 or 4 people. I'd pull within a car length of someone than there cars would just start sliding laterally across the track or warp back at me making it completely unpredictable to race with. Not one collision even made a contact sound.
Or notified me of an incident.

Yeah that was me you hit hahaha. Honestly no hard feelings at all.

Where are you based?

What's the rules for race starts? - there is a great video by RandomCallsign about how to start, but basically you need to be in line with the thick green line, regardless of the position of the other cars on track.

This graphic I made might explain it better.

When I was monitoring the server specs my ping was around 140-150 from what I saw.
My internet service is pretty good
600dl
100up

It was impossible to race anyone cars would look like they were running wide through a turn just to have them slide across the track back to the racing line to have me punt them off lol

My driving was embarrassing and apologies again to those I hit.

Edit: Interesting I just checked my simracing.gp profile for the last race and it says I had zero incidents or even off tracks? are they not coded yet?
