1 car less :-(. It's a goodbye party from work, on the type I have worked for the last 10 years, which I can not miss.
Have fun!

Does the weather carry over from the different sessions @Yorkie065? Like if we have 5 min practice before Q we could expect a fully wet track with puddles. We had 5 min practice last time just to check that everything is working with wheels and pedals before jumping in to Q.

I was just wondering if the track isn’t wet when Q starts there might be an option for the softs. But i think that is unlikely since the slot is rain and not light rain. I’m not sure though

I think its full luck. If u get out fast u could do 1 lap with softs. But the pit system is kinda ehm uhm sh*t. So whoever gets out first will win the quali.

Might be difficult to get enough heat in to the softs. Interesting option for coming races though with changing weather during Q

I talked to @Raigore (i heard he pushed it to the coods), It would be better to make quali 20min long and wait 5 min in pit, so the track can get some water. Why? Because first few dudes who get on track (and not stuck in the pit) can do 1-2 sec faster laps than others cuz the track is not that wet yet. It would make the quali fair. What you guys think about that.

So, is this OK with everyone?

I'll start the lobby at approximately 20.50 with 5 min practice and the 20 min Qualifying and no one is allowed to set a time the first 5 minutes?

That won't give anyone an advantage leaving pits earlier than others.

Would be nice, but is the weather/track contition carry over from practice to qualifying? if the track is already wet after 5 mins of practice, will it be wet aswell in qualifying of it will reset?

If it resets, then im up for on time set in first 5 minutes, or until any of the coord will say, that it is green and we can go to do out outlaps.

The track conditions still progress even after the first 5 min. Maybe not as dramatically, but the track seems slower still at 10 - 15 min in than it is at 5 - 10 min. So regardless of when cars are allowed on track, you still have to get your best lap in on your first laps.
