Circuit Zandvoort is a motorsport race track located in the dunes north of the municipality of Zandvoort in Netherlands. Historically, the venue has been used as the home of the Dutch Grand Prix up until 1985. Recently, the circuit has been hosting numerous smaller motor racing series, including DTM and F3, and is slated to host the returning 2020 Dutch Grand Prix.

On race day, we should be expecting a rather gloomy weather, with a mostly overcast sky. No rain has been predicted, though, so you may leave your umbrellas at home.

Weather Conditions:
- Qualifying: Overcast

- Race start: Overcast

Track state will progress from the practice session held before the race - by the time the race starts the track should be "optimum".

In-game time-of-day information:
- Qualifying time: 10:00
- Race start time: 14:00 (x1 time acceleration)

The Hungaroring is a motorsport racetrack in Mogyoród, Hungary where the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix is held. In 1986, it became the location of the first Formula One Grand Prix behind the Iron Curtain. Hungaroring will be hosting the GT World Challenge in Sept 2020 but we thought it's such a great track we would bring it in early for a 90 Min Race!

Weather Conditions:
Dynamic, 2 degree average ambient temperature, 2 degree starting track temperature. 0.2 cloud coverage. 2 randomness.

- Qualifying time: 12:00 AM (x1 time acceleration)
- Race start time: 1:00 AM (x4 time acceleration)

The Silverstone Circuit is a motor racing circuit in England located next to the Northamptonshire villages of Silverstone and Whittlebury.
Silverstone is the current home of the British Grand Prix, which it first hosted in 1948. The 1950 British Grand Prix at Silverstone was the first race in the newly created World Championship of Drivers. The race rotated between Silverstone, Aintree and Brands Hatch from 1955 to 1986, but relocated permanently to Silverstone in 1987. The circuit also hosts the British round of the MotoGP series.

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. At this time, mainly the Blancpain Sprint Series and the BRCC national championship hosted a race in Zolder. The 24 Hours of Zolder endurance event is also held as a stand-alone event around the end of August or the beginning of September.

During the league race chilly winds are expected and there's a very low chance of rain. The sky should be lightly cloudy.

Slight amendments in terms of Qualifying/Race starting times in-game may be applied due to Covid-19

NOTE: Server settings changed from "weatherRandomness": 3 to "weatherRandomness": 2, as using 3 occasionally resulted in short heavy rain downpours during the race.

As interesting as that might well be, with the length of the pitlane, and considering it is the final race of the season, it was decided to reduce the chance of this happening to try to ensure that the final race of the season is a full on race, is less likely to be decided by luck, and to have a more consistent experience across the tiers.
