So, with the release of GTSport, I thought it might be fun to have a look into how the game stacks up in a league situation. However, there are some quirks that we will need to work out and that you need to be aware of.

Firstly, the qualifying will be a 10 minute session, that's 10 minutes from when the lobby loads in. There will be a 15 minute free run prior to the qualifying starting to allow everyone to join in time. Once everyone is in, I will edit the settings accordingly and qualifying will begin once the lobby reloads.

There is no qualifying time limit available, so I will keep an eye on the timer in the bottom right hand corner and begin the final when that reaches 10 minutes.

Finally, private lobbies sadly do not work very well at the moment so this will be a public lobby and I will just keep kicking those who join incorrectly. The title of the lobby will be "AOR Social" and it will be a lot easier to find the lobby if you add me on PSN: HRacingGreen2400.

One other thing, there's no pressure to join this, even if 4 or 5 people join that'll be enough as I would just like to see how this game works in a league situation and how suitable it would be/what format we need to use for a future league.

Thanks for the heads up but don't have the game yet but you could maybe send a link to the main F1 thread if you want.

Some positives and some negatives from this race for sure.

Accidentaly started on hard tyres but had good pace regardless, made a few errors that I need to iron out. My fuel and tyre saving seems on point tho, so hopefully with a bit more practice I can nail the strat, as my attempted 1 stop failed. Then my wheel died. I also forgot that exiting to kick a pleb deletes your lap, so the public lobby issue really need to be sorted.

Other than the freeze, it seems this game is extremely smooth and stable online, which bodes really well. Will turn off wall collision penalties because those are daft. The 2x multipliers made the strategy interesting so those are a shout. In the real thing, you'd have to start on the same compound you qualified on btw, since I aim to keep it the same lobby.

Great drive from @eminem09494 as well, pace and conservation was excellent.


Thanks to everyone for joining too, really pleased with how it went :)
