With the 2019 ACC update, the new cars it introduced, and crucially the new 2019 versions of the tracks it has created a complicated situation with regards to car performance and competitiveness.
At the moment every car can join any online session, but depending on the version of the track that is joined the car may well have a different BOP (Balance Of Performance) applied to it:
  • If a car that raced in 2018 joins a 2018 track it gets the real 2018 BOP applied (this is the situation we were in before the patch)
  • If a car that raced in 2019 joins a 2019 track it gets the real 2019 BOP applied
  • If a car that raced in both 2018 and 2019 joins a 2018 track it gets a real 2018 BOP, if it joins a 2019 track it gets a 2019 BOP (this is the case for cars like the Ferrari, M6, 2018 Bentley)
  • If a car that did not race in 2018 joins a 2018 track it gets an estimated 2018 BOP that Kunos applied (this would be the case if you raced the Audi Evo on a 2018 track)
  • If a car that did not race in 2019 joins a 2019 track it gets an estimated 2019 BOP that Kunos applied (this would be the case if you raced the non-Evo Audi on a 2019 track)
In light of this, and considering that the Spa race is less than a week after the patch was released, we have decided to continue as we previously were for now, and race only 2018 cars on the 2018 version of the Spa track for next week.

More discussions and plenty of testing are going on in the meantime and we will update everyone as soon as possible when we have decided the final plan for the weeks following the Spa race.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to participate in SPA race. I have been informed that on Monday I have to go to another city and train some people. I will be back Thursday late at night. Sorry but this is my work.

Couple Notes:

- Odds will be on the LEFT, Evens on the Right
- 15 minute Pit Window (careful coming out of the pits)
- Be prepared to lift and even brake if needed going up Eau Rouge at the start of the race
- It's a 90 min race and damage early is very costly to your race and others! You will gain positions by running a mistake free, clean race
- Different cars/drivers will have different braking points especially going into the high speed corners

My personal goal is to turn laps without mistakes and not worry about positions.

A little reminder for you all,
since the 1.1 patch the game does now DQ you if you do not pit within the pit window provided by the league organisers.
last of all have fun, you never know what is going to happen with a 90 minute race

Could you clarify the pit window for this race guys? There seems to be some contradicting information in the Original post and then this

- 15 minute Pit Window (careful coming out of the pits)
Also the math seems off in the original post unless i'm being a pleb again.

Math is off, it recently changed it to 15 min pit window.
