There is a mandatory pit stop during the race where you must change tyres, but you are not obligated to use different compounds. You are also free to make as many additional stops as you like.

There are only 20 slots available for this event, and each driver must use a unique livery. Due to the limited grid, please only sign up if you know you can make the event. If it turns out you can't make it then please give at least 24 hours notice so that someone else can take your place. Please sign up using the following format and ensure that your chosen livery is available, or you won't be added to the grid:

Just wanted to check that the start time is an hour later than usual?
Good catch... no it's not. My fault, I couldn't be bothered to type all those pretty colours again so I copy/pasted the sign-up list from the last GP we ran. That was before the times changed. :redface:

So this event will start at 19:00UTC, same as usual.

The track isn't so bad once you get the hang of it. It's just those horrible blue lines which really do my head in. In VR they look horrendous, making it hard to see brake markers and even the corners themselves! No idea what genius thought it would be a good idea, but there's a reason no other track has followed suit! :O_o:

You're not wrong. It is a bizarre circuit especially this particular layout.
The first corners the left and right if and I mean if you get it right without touching the kerbs too much you have the problem of getting a litte airborne on exit. Which can send you around in a blink of an eye. Extremely difficult to get right, 1 out of 10 if you're lucky.
A hell of a circuit that requires a hell of a lot of concentration. So I'm prettymuch screwed.:O_o:
