Built in 1963, Zolder hosted the Formula One Belgian Grand Prix on 10 separate occasions in the 1970s and 1980s, as well as the 1980 Belgian motorcycle Grand Prix.

Race thread up for Race 2, hope to see you all there, if not please let me know.

Hopefully we can avoid a repeat of Race 1, seems there is a bug that can leave a car on the track after the formation lap.

Front row starters - please make sure to keep an eye out and also shout up if you see anything in voice chat (probably a good idea to un-mute yourself for the start).

Is medium rain a setting that I can choose in practise?
I've never driven in the wet by choice, I love the grip of these machines! :cool:

Also if anyone's doing races. I've experienced a glitch a few times now. On thr grid at zolder but as the formation lap starts the race ends and everything's finished the before turn 1.


It's happened to me in both aor servers and the competition servers multiple times. The time this didn't happen was with the short formation lap.

There are two bugs in the game that has us decided to change the settings for Zolder.

1. The option "simracerWeatherConditions": 1 is not working on console. This will limit the maximum rain/wetness to roughly 2/3 of the maximum values, translating to something between medium and heavy rain.
The weather settings are changed to:
"cloudLevel": 0.2,
"rain": 0.3,

2. Long formation lap on Zolder is bugged and therefore we are using the short formation lap.

So how exactly does that effect the weather? Less rain and a dryer track? Hopefully doesn't effect setup or I'll have a busy Monday making a 3rd setup for this race.

yes slightly less rain as some were finding the track was too wet, shouldn't affect your setup massively, but i would head over to the practice servers to make sure you're happy with it.

If you can let me have any feedback?

Cheers.

Don't know if the servers been updated or not but didn't notice much difference. Slightly up on my time from yesterday but track felt fairly the same.

The short formation lap solves the start issue though
