The Free Practice session will be 15 minutes in length. Every participating driver should join as soon as possible after the server opens to make sure that they don't miss the start of Qualifying and also to make sure that their game is configured & working properly.

Qualifying will be split to two sessions (10 + 5 minutes). Both sessions will run in non-private mode (all cars will be visible on track at the same time). Qualifying 1 will be run with free setup while Qualifying 2 has Parc Ferme enforced. Parc Ferme will only allow you to change your fuel load, tire compound, engine boost, engine brakemap, front wing angle, steering lock, brake balance and brake pressure after the session is over, so make sure you have your race setup loaded when entering Qualifying 2. Qualifying 2 session will be closed, this means that it will impossible for people to join while the session is running.

The Warmup session will be 10 minutes in length. You can drive freely in the Warmup session to try to get a feel for the heavier car after qualifying on low fuel.

The Race will be 31 laps long. Drive safely during the race, especially at the start and the first lap in general.

Red Flags will NOT be used unless in very specific situations which are specified in the rule documents.
Race Director can't assure to be here before 12 GMT because he has to go to the hospital, thats why there is just one Pre-Qualifying Group (Groups can be 26 max long, so everything should be ok).

No grid 2 as Allocations < 36.

Good luck and enjoy racing.

TOP 17 Directly to Grid 1. 18th and 19th wait till warm up, I will give signal.
Hello Martin!?!

Jorrick Boshove is one of the top 10 drivers....and he was in PREQ, this means, 17 gets to grid1!! :D

He had to preQ for late allocation. Rules aren't very clear in that aspect, i was reading them till 5 min to go in PreQ.
6.1 Drivers who haven’t submitted their allocation within the specified time frame will only be allowed to
take part in the event if 1) there are free spots left on the grid (less than 26 drivers allocated), or 2) a
pre-qualifying session is arranged. If the grid is full and a pre-qualifying is not arranged, a late
allocated driver may not take part in the event under any circumstances. If several drivers allocate
late, the one(s) with the earlier allocation timestamp have preference with regards to 1) and 2).

This means he was forced to PreQ.
It's really frustrating to get always a strange rfactor 2 bug. Today i could do Great! in Qualy and race. My Pace was good compared to the others but the game decidet no... -.- 50% races not racing due to the bug. I think i probably retire from the season...

What is the bug?
I missed my Silverstone comment. Guess what? Right thread is closed :D

Good qualifying sessions; this (15:50) is my Q2 lap that allows me to start from 7.
Race start (32:10) is quite good as well; Klop overtakes me, but I succed to resist to Sandler and I overtake Ivanov. After Rens drive through I'm 5th. I pit earlier than most of the field; after all pitstops and Kweekel and Brewer spins I take second place. When I'm defending from Klop there is a contact (1:01:30); I spin and I lose two positions. After that I resist to Brewer and Partington, conserving 4th place.

Very good race and good result, but I think there was a chance to hold on and get podium without that contact. I'm very happy about how I raced in first half season; maybe the most solid drive of my career. I would like to continue like this in second half. Thanks to my team :cool: and to staff ;). Congratulations to winner Suokas, to podium and to who is happy about his performance ;). See you in Hockenheim haha :p
